TELOS 1 - Vertical Arcade & Pinball FX3
« on: December 26, 2021, 10:55:16 am »
I kinda have a thing for vertical machines. I've been envisioning this build for a while and all of the design just came to me this week as I was off from work.
I haven't been on here much in the last 6 years or so, but I know this is the only place to submit my plans and get good feedback on.

I'll be doing a simple single player control panel and using a 42" LED TV.
The topper box will be for a smaller screen for DMD.,

I'm running Coinops Arcade vs Pinball
I've run some tests on the 42" and DMD screen and they look great for Pinball FX3.
Also experimented with a bunch of video games, both vertical & horizontal (with bezels & marquee).

This is going to be awesome - and unique.   How does the playfield look when viewed at an angle like that?  Does it still look "real" (like it has depth, etc.)?  I'm completely unfamiliar with pinball emulators (don't have the room) but I really love pinball builds.

:cheers:

I think it looks fine but I will be running some more tests.

Quite a striking design, I like it. Though I expect people to put their feet on the slanted panels at the bottom.

yeah, I figured the same. those will be covered with metal of some kind. Diamond plate maybe.

I saw this back when you posted but forgot to comment.  I REALLY like the design you came up with.  Looks like it belongs in a sci fi movie!  Anxious to see some graphics applied and the real thing start to emerge!  With a design like this I hope you're planning some unique LED accents?
