The Next Game PPS/CGC ....
« on: October 19, 2015, 01:44:43 PM »
What I can tell people at this point.


- The next game has been in development for some time - using resources from CGC that were no longer needed from the MMR project.
- It is very far along and is playable with new electronics, etc.
- Will 'likely' be announced at TPF in March - that is not cast in stone, but likely.
- Playfields, Cab art, Plastics are done or at next to last rev, using original wms art films.
- Our goal is to create a 'real' short time between availability and shipment - there will be no pre-orders per se (what resellers do is up to them)
- There will be no trim options (lol) ... but there will be something else.
- There will more after game #2 ... several more spanning several years.


But for now, the focus is on getting MMR's delivered and production at a run rate that everyone is comfortable.

Rick,


Thanks for the info mate. Let's say one day you do CC would you release it with the factory ROM or would FAST Pinball be able to work on it and make it somewhat better as we all know the code was the let down on the CC.


March 2016 or later is fine for the announcement and I am happy that there are no trim options to be honest. Way too much trouble. LOL

Not saying that CC is next or not, but we have already updated CC code and have a full compile environment for it based on original code running for some time. So no, CC code would be updated.

Hypothetically MB will be re-made at some point in the not too distant future. When it is, would the lighting effects be brighter than the original game with a brighter looking playfield and backbox ?

Hi,


Just a question: will you notify owner of MMR before the public announcement of the next title ?
I know I am personally interested in some titles  if they will be remade, but I can't look at the forum each day and I don't want to miss an opportunity.


Thanks

There will be notification on this forum, so you won't have to sift thru thousands of posts to find out what is going on.


There is a proposal to announce at TPF, but that may or may not happen based on where things are (or are not).


One thing we are not going to do is announce anything overly early.
