    Arcooda Pinball Arcade

    Sounds interesting. It seems like they were developing a cabinet version after all! (Could someone else clarify, though?)

    https://www.arcooda.com/arcooda-and-...inball-arcade/

    "Arcooda is proud to announce the launch “Arcooda Pinball Arcade”, available exclusively on Arcooda’s range of advanced arcade and pinball machines.

    Arcooda Pinball Arcade was developed in partnership with FarSight Studios, creators of the #1 leading video pinball software, “The Pinball Arcade”. Working with Arcooda, the American video game developer and publisher is tailoring its well-known video pinball software for Arcooda’s range of innovative products.

    Arcooda Pinball Arcade will be a flagship product comprising of many exciting new features such as easy touchscreen navigation & game play, advanced playfield angles (including 3D options), real pinball parts support (flipper coils, shaker motors), tournament play, and 3 screen game play.

    “The advanced version of Arcooda Pinball Arcade software will enable our machines to feel and play like a real pinball, and to offer many licensed software titles which are now very difficult to locate as original machines,” Steve Josifovski, CEO of Arcooda, said.

    Over 70 customised classic pinball titles will be exclusive to Arcooda Pinball Arcade including The Addams Family, FunHouse, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Monster Bash, Medieval Madness and Twilight Zone."

    I have send them an inquiry with questions pertaining to the cost of a standard model virtual pinball cabinet and also if they deliver internationally (guess they must to make this endeavour worthwhile, I don't believe Australia alone will be enough of a market)

    Maybe these machines will be for commercial purpose, or FS will just be making cabinets. I remember those Play 10 machines that have 10 different video games in one cab.

    It always has been. They have a Virtua Pin cab in their office with a partially finished cab version. It's even been brought out to a handful of shows, but not in the last couple of years.

    I must say, the thought of having my tables in a Pinball body for that realistic feel would be nice.

    Wonder how much it costs, and if it'll work well with Pinball FX 2, Zaccaria Pinball, and Pro Pinball Ultra as well...

    Wonder if this means we'll eventually get cabinet support so we can run external displays for scoreboards and such. For now I have things hacked together with Actual Multiple Monitors, but it's far less than ideal.

    One word does come to mind when I think of this, "warranty"! Granted, it'll likely be in a price range well above my wallet, but regardless, this thing needs to work. A PS3 breaks after a long while, fine... a $5000 to $10000 thing breaks... not fine!

    I'd say longer than that, I expect a PS3 to last at least 3 years. Maybe 7 to 10 years. It all comes down to the price.

    If you haven't watched the video for this, you should. Some interesting design choices.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDv3Etzv7Ak

    Can't say I'm a fan of the honking big black panel in the front, or the optional arcade controls you can put there.. just seems weird in a pinball machine.

    Some questions that come to mind:

    - I guess classic vertical orientation arcade games (from Ikaruga to Pac Man, etc) could be a match to the vertical pinball display but zero modern games are built for that display format. And that giant ugly black panel at the front, ugh.

    - touchscreen main panel certainly solves the UI problem but... seems like overkill to me? And adds expense?

    - lighting matrix / coil matrix / shaker motor support: tied to the pinball table, somehow? If so... how?

    - is there audio output for the table sounds specifically so those can come from table speakers vs backglass speakers?

    - obviously there is proper dedicated DMD screen and backglass screen output support here, which I'd freaking *kill* to have in TPA.

    Also, shipping this from Australia would be _brutal_ in cost. It's incredibly expensive to ship a small regular package to Aus, much less a pallet containing a full-sized pinball table at 200+ lbs or so..
