Planned 1/2 scale cabinet

Postby insx » Fri Sep 20, 2013 2:41 pm

Hi Folks

Because Timeshock! is coming back, I've started gathering bits for a 1/2 scale cabinet with 22" / 15" / 7" LCD monitors. Questions are mounting up, such as:

Will T! support analogue nudging via a gamepad with accelerometer (MS Sidewinder Freestyle Pro)?
Will the 3 monitor setup somehow allow for the correct aspect ratio for the DMD on a 7" 16:9 screen?
What specification CPU/Graphics/RAM will I need?
Will the T! cabinet artwork be available?
How will the ball ever make it up the upper ramp? :D

I'm sure there will be lots more questions along the way. It would also be good if people could share cabinet building tips here.

Cheers

One of the addons is the following:
+£20 Pro Pinball Art Package for Pinball Cabinets (Now included in £250 Tier and above)

I'm assuming this will include cabinet decals (digital)
Timeshock! is being built as a real machine!

I missed that, hopefully it can be bought later.

That's a good question. Ade. says the Paypal option will be closed by Sept. 30, so how would one pay for it after that date? I suppose you wait until the game is completed and put up for sale?

After 30th September, we will still offer some non-physical things via PayPal including the cabinet artwork.

I'm getting on quite well with my cabinet build but I'm a bit stalled having bought an nVidia GTS450 card off ebay that prevented the computer from starting up. I'm also waiting for my 7" display to arrive from China. Hopefully I will have something to look at by the time the next test renders come out and I'll post a pic or two.

It helps to work at a place with a machine room.
