Just wstch an enjoying doc on that camp fest that is Flash Gordon


2 of the fans have the Bally game with one having Indy J and l think Shadow lurking behind

I think if l was making a pinball (with ANY original theme) Brian Blessed would be top of my wish list for voice work. With him booming "super jackpot" you wouldnt need a shaker motor!

Blessed is a really nice chap.

I've met him three times. The second of which I cheekily asked him if he'd record an intro to my podcast which he did.

On the third occasion we were chatting about football for 10 mins. At least 5 people walked past and shouted 'Gordon's alive'.

I asked him if it pi$$ed him off? Not only did he say that he loved it, he got me to shout it out with him repeatedly. 😂😂

Funnily enough I have one of those mp3 trigger boards in front of me now....

I am sure if you triggered certain sayings with certain switches it would pee you off after a time.

You also need to mix it in with the tables own audio track by injecting the sound signal into the factory PCB. Easy enough to do but would need some hacking!

Which is why i am enjoying the Future Pinball version (yes i know its not real), but the shout outs make it so much fun.

It's been done 👍 the guy who rethemed a FG into Ghostbusters put the queen soundtrack and film callouts on it first as a test of the MP3 trigger board. I bought one for mine years ago but never got round to doing anything with it. I'll probably use it for my eventual JL retheme.
