- animated explosion and Light Jet machine gun flasher effects, and Light Cycle effects

- RGB undercab lighting changes based on multiball, game modes, and much more

- gear motor operates when shooting at the spinning disc

- shaker motor and blower fan operates for many table events

- strobe effects throughout

- flasher effects change colour based on mode and game progression

- Start, Coin, Launch Ball button lights: flash / On / Off during table events / functions

For SLAMT1LT's newest versions of his tables (without DOFLinx support), goto his website:

  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
I want to make something like this. For starters, what frontend are you using? How much did it cost in Canadian dollars? I'm in the US, so I need to convert to US dollars. Nice rig!!!!!

Front End is Pinball X.

Cost....well I can't give you an accurate total as I just kept adding stuff in over a year.... maybe anywhere between $3000 to $5000?  I already had alot of the electronics and the cabinet was made from scratch. The only real pinball parts I used were the legs, plunger, and launch button, and the coin door was a cheap smaller door.

But here's the million dollar question...

But do you play it? And, if you do, do you enjoy it, or are you finding things that need improved?

Yeah this new setup is not your normal vpin.  Just the new software adds alone, I play mine all the time and its not even in a cabinet yet, the effects are enough to keep you interested.

Another big difference....unlike arcade cabinets which are focused on mostly playing games....

.... virtual pinball presents opportunities to create games, or contribute to helping to make parts of pinball games.

Sadly....starting next weekend, i will be away from my cabinet for about 4 months for work. Maybe i'll be home on weekends.

Hopefully I can get Star Wars Death Star Assault (Ultimate 1.03) DOFLinx mod done before then...

just a suggestion, make a DOFLinx thread in either software or pinball section. Post your table updates there. More likely to get seen and it keeps the project thread more focused on the project itself.

I'll definitely consider that when I'm not far away from home for a long time, and I have more time for a dedicated thread (as that will lead to answering alot of questions at first).

Here are a few other videos of DOFLinx mods I did recently for those interested....

Knight Rider


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcbtMBi9NXU




RetroFlair


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNhs2yyZAew




....and finally a VERY cool Visual Pinball X table. The Walking Dead LE. This has the crossbow, full colour virtual DMD with pretty dots, PWM flashers, and a customized Cleland rom for original music and sounds from the TV show.

I also added my own little mod of the addressable led 5 RGB flashers emulation. Instead of the normal circle shapes, I have it spell out "DEAD". I think it looks pretty cool!

Now I'm finally back home after 4 months...and I'm going to be really busy getting my house ready to sell....but I figured I'd pass along some recent updates that have been going on.



First was my latest DOFLinx mod of DRAKKO's excellent Wipeout for Future Pinball. A video demo can be seen here:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8OK2s_rehQ






Next, is a big update of Pinball X. Now it supports video toppers.  A video topper is displayed on a screen above your backglass screen. You can have Pinball X display a video here while browsing, but also while actually playing your game.  For me, I make use of this for the upper half of my dual middle screen. This makes my life soooo much easier. Now I finally have all of my media properly caught up and formatted to use with this for VPX, PFX2, and Future Pinball. A video demo can be seen here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aMQEkVi_u0






Lastly...  I decided to finally add in Letters and Shapes to DOF R3's   *shapes.xml file to be used with addressable leds for all tables.  After bugging poor Arngrim, he's added them to the DOF Config Tool!  So now everyone can use them!


Here's a quick video showing a few examples of a simple 5 flasher replacement for Tales of the Arabian Nights "TOTAN", Theatre of Magic "MAGIC", and Walking Dead  "DEAD".


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DrfPIcnw2U






I've also decided to try dabbling into doing DOF'ing for VP.  I've added full effects and animation for addressable leds for ACDC LE for VPX.  I'll have a video up soon enough to show that off!

AC/DC LE for VPX. Such an amazing table. Gorgeous.

I think it deserves something special....   how about some cool new addressable leds matrix effects, animation, letters and words that appear for almost everything throughout the table events.

I present to you...my 1st ever DOF mod for a VP table. The AC/DC cabinet "FIRE" edition!  ;)    I added in all the DOF for addressable leds, as well as a couple of beacon and FIRE button functions! (Arngrim already had the normal DOF stuff done)

Some effects included are:

- animated effects for the electric spinner,

- animated effects for the bell

- letters that light up (with effects) for each target (AC/DC, TNT, ROCK) and the AXE rollovers

- animated effects and the word "FIRE" that show up when the cannon is ready to fire

- side rail effects for each ramp

- bumper and slingshot effects

- side rail effects for drain

- 5 flasher emulation on the side strips, positioned where they are on the playfield



Here is a video demonstration a bunch of gameplay in my cabinet. You've never seen a VP table look quite like this.....

You Have the POWER!!!  with my MASTERED Edition update to "Rom's" excellent "Masters of the Universe" Future Pinball table. I've also created an "all-new" DOFLinx cabinet mod as well. This table mod is inspired by SLAMT1LT's tables as well as the newer pinball machines (from JJP, Stern, Heighway Pinball) that now use monitors instead of DMDs.

      A video demonstration that shows off all the features of the MASTERED Edition as well as the DOFLinx mod can be seen here:

https://youtu.be/O_5w4ocVInI





MASTERED Edition:

- new backglass with various fanart. Formatted specifically to work with 16:9, and 4:3 screens.
- new full motion video sequences for almost all table actions and modes. These are NEW hi-resolution video clips that now appear on the backglass (and display HUD for desktop users)
- new info display shown on backglass
- new sound clips

Watch Prince Adam dance to the beat (and the animated matching flashers) of Castle Multi-Ball!

Experience the woosh of blower-fan air from Ripper Multi-Ball.

FEEL the POWER (and shaker motor) when you become HE-MAN and see your power emanate from the flashers.

FEAR Skeletor as he launches his devastating 9-Ball Multi-Ball and watch him laugh at you on the backglass.

Go beyond the days of DMDs and see full hi resolution videos and info displays on the new animated backglass.

Don't be a cheap skate, or Skeletor will get angry!

With 1000's of images, and new sounds...this makes for a MOTU experience like no other, and a Pinball experience found nowhere else!



DOFLinx Cabinet Edition:

-10 solenoid feedback for flippers, bumpers, slings, kickers, etc
-gear motor for Castle Grayskull, Ripper, and He-Man
-shaker motor feedback to feel the power and action
-blower fan feedback for Ripper ramp
-5 RGB flasher animated effects
-RGB under cabinet lighting
-beacon and strobe effects
-coin, start, and launch button leds


A normal Desktop version of the MASTERED Edition as well as a DOFLinx Cabinet version of the MASTERED Edition will be on PinSimDB when approved.


Here are some still pics from the Desktop version.

Unfortunately Photobucket changed their TOS.... so now I basically have to PAY them now if I want to host my pics, as apparently they are too popular.   :(

I'm not playing that game...so I need to find another free hosting service that won't hold my pics hostage. If anyone has good suggestions, please let me know.

Once I do, I will have to edit ALL of my posts to the new site's links... which will take a long time.

Fair enough, it's not too hard to just click on one of the links and see them on photobucket 1st person. I'm going to start cutting soon on a sorta bartop pinball with a trackball and 4-way stick, so Pinkadia is an obvious inspiration.

Well, I'd like to say that this post is about an upgrade to the pincab, but....

We just moved to Ottawa this week. Its been a long couple of weeks of packing, loading, cleaning, and living in a hotel with myself, wife, 2 kids, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. VERY tiring.

We were happy to finally take possession of our new home, and to see the moving truck arrive with all of our stuff. The move went amazingly well without any real scratches or damages to the house.

Amazingly, our items arrived undamaged.... except for "one" thing......







:(

Sorry to see that, man. See, I knew you should have put glass in there! When I make mine, I'm putting plexi. Well now you can upgrade the display. 4k, perhaps?

Ok, so now I'm a much happier man. My mancave is mostly up and running. PinKadia is alive again, and the simpit is shaking the house again after a long absence... driving my wife crazy!



Here's a video tour describing what I have, and how everything works and is wired together and how VR is setup to work with everything. I show off the simpit and how my 12 transducer telemetry feedback setup works and you also get to "hear" how it works too! It is amazing combined with VR!




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKHKb9YML8w




If want to skip right to the simpit demo then go here....



https://youtu.be/jKHKb9YML8w?t=5m2s



Just waiting for the new TV to get replaced, then I'll make a stand for that to go over the simpit to bring the screen closer.  Then the last screen and game consoles will go the the unused space.

Hahaha....I knew this was coming.  I honestly haven't said "mancave" much since my post from way back, when it annoyed you before. After watching the video I knew I'd hear about it here (but nowhere else it seems).

Apparently its not just you guys who hate "mancave". A friend of mine who runs vpinball.com also hates that term.  I'll just call it Gameroom from now on.
