Wombat was awarded the badge 'Great Content' and 20 points.

So, took the plunge to build a VP, esp given how far the software, gfx, pup pack addons, pinscape controller etc has developed over the years.

Firslty, a huge thanks for Michael Roberts for the effort put into the Pinscape Build guide and invaluable resources, and all contributors to the software development DOF etc, NAilbuster, Terry Red, JPSalas tables, BigusMods, Orbital Pinball Scotty Wic, Freezy, Stuzza the list goes on and on for all those involved and how they have all contributed to the hobby.

To build from scratch is quite involved for the first time, researching, reading, watching videos, sourcing materials, assembling, wiring, trouble shooting, etc, but very rewarding and gives you a real appreciation of the time, and manufacturing and costs involved with making a Pinball, either real or virtual.

Williams wide body design, using 17mm form ply from buunings 3 x1800x1200 sheets, after construction, sanded down and spray painted with Matt Black before custom decal applied. Lock mitre joint used on edges.

Playfield is ASUS 43" 4K 120Hz monitor. BG 32" LG monitor and the DMD Apron Screen 21" Lenovo Screen. PC is AMD Ryzen 7 with 16GB Ram and 1TB Nvmi SSD mounted on the MB + Creative RX5 7.1 sound card. 4x Daytona Excitors and Sub, Logitec Sound. 10x DOF Starter Relays for feedback, OzStick Williams plunger kit and KL25Z Pinscape board - reflashed and configured for output control of the DOF and more inputs added, Teensy 3.2 RGB LED board for LED strip control - 2 x 144 addressable LED strip each side playfield and 1x 8x32 RGB addressable LED Matrix and undercab LED.

Thanks for the detailed write up. I could not see which video card you used. How does it play?

Well done!

RTX2070 that I had after I upgraded to 6900XT.

and yes 4k playfields and no flipper lag, on the 43"4k monitor is Sweet.

Thanks for the write up, and a in particular the information about your playfield screen. I would like to go 120hz 4K for my build and wasn't sure what to buy but this sounds very promising.

Any chance you should put up some pics of the whole cab with a game running so I can see how the screen sizes all look against each other?

Wow what a build.Well done.

 

Question on your lock mitre - were you happy with the join? - router table? From your photo, is it a pic of of 2 examples? Id love a closeup of that join. Definitely a hard join to achieve. Again, well done and thanks for the detail

Yes I was happy with it. Really sharp actually. Did a few test runs om some scrap first. A mitred rabet joint would be easier.

The reason of two examples is that one is easily done with the hand router, ie lay the piece flat, clamp and route away, the second one, the opposite joining mitre must be done on the end grain. a real PITA to do as needed to add a few extra blocks to aid in keeping the hand router at 90 deg and hold the piece vertical as i dont have a routing table.
