Default 28" 4K 2 monitor Vpin build

Hi all

For a few weeks now I've building up a collection and making plans for 28" and 50" Virtual Pinballs with 4K playfields with 2 and 3 monitors. (additional monitors backglass score and DMD.)

I've got a 4K 28" to get me started with a 10" Lenovo tablet using twomon USB Air for a wireless second screen while I build up my table collection and configure everything.

I've also got a Razer Atrox Xbox One fight stick and have proceeded to mod it with extra switches and mercury tilt switches.
Using my overkill SLI GTX 1080 water cooled PC with Rampage IV Black, Intel 4960X and I will probably build the tables with external PC connectivity to keep the vpins small and more portable.

Got joy to key working to access a couple more buttons on the Atrox which doesn't present all buttons in Windows 10 in game mode. (left and right trigger buttons don't work but everything else does)

Anyway enough of the talk here's the test bed and parts ready to go....

that's pretty cool! how "3D" does it look in person? have you considered hooking up do-nothing solenoids to the side buttons for haptic feedback? any temptation to add a joystick (retractable maybe) so you can play vertical screen shooters too?

Brilliant work. I've wanted to make one of these for a while now. Real pinball machines are awesome, but I've seen the upkeep on them, and it looks pretty full on.

Got a video of it in action?

Hi

There's a few videos in the flickr album - click on the images below to go to flickr and look at the videos.

This is the front end table program called Pinball X

Game play before I've put it in the cabinet. Excuse the crap play it was one handed!

Game play in the cabinet - again one handed but you get the idea.

When I've got a bit more done on the cabinet I'll do a video with my go-pro so I can show a proper game with multi-ball action.

It has pretty good depth to it for a 2D image, you can actually play in 3D but I'm using a 4K screen that doesn't do 3D.

I've tried in 3D on my projector but it's pretty convincing even in 2D.

There's a few tricks you can do with mounting the screen about an inch below another piece of glass on the front to give it that extra feeling of depth. I'm not doing that for the mini-pin but when I build the full size one shortly I'll be putting another piece of glass in front.

No haptic's for the mini but the full size will have various solenoids and shaker motors. I'm putting an arcade stick on the mini with various buttons for mame games but I'm not sure about the full size. I think I'd rather keep the full size as just a pin and use wireless controller if playing mame.

Here's 11 mins of game play if you can be bothered watching it all.
I got some awesome multi-ball action a few times. One of my best ever games on Cirqus Voltaire.

Sorry the gopro was strapped to my hat so the video's a bit shaky at times.
I'll do some more video's with a tripod another time.
