I started cutting the updated playfield layout tonight. I’ll be chronicling it both here as well as via a couple of YouTube videos.
I made a quick little video showing the current state of this table. You can view it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T47GkWxugNc
I’m going to post a first pass rules doc soon so check back semi often!
I had a good amount of time today to make some significant tweaks to the initial layout sketch.
I removed the scoop and widened lots of shots. I also added a new toy that wasn’t in the VPT file…
It’s been a while! I’m waiting for parts to complete TotD right now, so I figured I’d start working on the next pin design a little.
I think it’s about time to start mentioning some of the rules to Fairyland Tales. I have about 6 pages of rules for it- lots of stuff to do!
FLT is a bit of a mix of ToM and STTNG I think… It has 5 primary game modes and 4 required table goals to get to the wizard mode. Of course, there are a couple multiball modes, hidden modes, multipliers, wizard mode tiers, etc… but I’m not going to talk about those right now
I’ve been in the musical mood lately. I’ve decided to add alternate music and soundFX to Tail of the Dragon. Typically, when you start a game, the music/sound will default to traditional chimes. If you hold down the left flipper button and press start, however, the game will use the alternate music and soundFX.
Here’s some music for Fairyland Tales. I still consider these tracks to be work in progress, but they are mostly done at this point. I’ll only consider them complete when the game is complete
I got my P-ROC on Wednesday! I have a lot of work to do to finish getting the table components hooked up. The most complex thing to do is hook up the lamp matrix. This thing has 63 lamps on the playfield alone! The backbox has another 16 or so.
This evening was a fun, I added ~60 diodes to the playfield’s lamp sockets. Best of all, I chronicled all 2 hours of it live via Ustream! I don’t know how to embed Ustream videos yet, so swing on over to my channel and check them out.
Tomorrow I’m going to take care of the ~20 switchs live as well.
