Is this 'soon' as in weeks or months approximately? It seems that all useful information about the games development is still locked behind the Kickstarter paywall. Now that there are people paying $15 for an early access release that policy should be looked at again

This is awesome news indeed.

Will it already support real DMD output? Or will that have to wait?
Have you guys been looking at color DMD support like PinDMD3 and PIN2DMD?

I've got cabinet support up and running on my PC.

Protip: to enter the command line options on Steam, find Pro Pinball in your library, right click and look for advanced launch options.

It took me quite a while to find my backglass and DMD and a few minutes more to tweak them into good position. The backglass art seems to have a different aspect ratio than my second monitor so I had to decide what to cut off between the games title or the pro pinball logo. The cabinet view seems to be kind of a partially stretched out version of the games normal look, it's not quite perfect.

But I don't want to dwell on what's not perfect. I have around 300 different games on my pincab over 6 different apps, and Timeshock is now the most impressive one. It took a while to get here, but I'm happy with what you guys have done

You should be able use the relative height setting to stretch the backglass and DMD to fit your screens perfectly.

Thank you for considering multi channel speaker option for sperate sound outputs !!!!

Still can't believe why VP can't do this. Only because someone bulit a cab with 2 soundcards 10 years ago? nowadays all sound devices are multi channel...
Whatever, still glad you put it in.

How to use command-line-options in the kickstarter version?! Where can I set them? THANKS....
(Seems not to work by just putting a "q" behind the exe)

(Yeah, I also cannot wait to see PinDMD working!) :)

edit: Oh, just test 1 did not work, now it's ok... let's have a look :-)
