apparently the design is a repurposed chinese zombies from a while back with a few minor changes
Thanks for your input Jady but you are completely incorrect as you are with most assumptions you make about Homepin, me and my products.
Notice how I NEVER butt into your threads about the parts you make and hang s-h-i-t on them! You might try that sometime, it might keep you out of trouble!
The layout is nothing like China Zombies despite what some have attempted to say. There are plenty of negative nellies who seem to get their exercise by jumping to conclusions! Most have never even seen the machine but suddenly they are 'experts'.
A few clarifications for the keyboard warriors out there. "Porsche Taycan" was a contract job we did for the Porsche Motor Company. They supplied the brief and outline of the design. If it 'looks' like Firepower that's possibly because the Porsche agency (that handled this order) most likely looked online and decided that Firepower was the design for them. That wasn't my decision, they were the customer and we built what they wanted. They are not for sale to the public.
The two sample Spinal Tap Pinball machines that were assembled and shipped in a hurry so they would arrive in Newcastle in time for the show had many small things we knew still needed attention. I was making many of these changes the Friday night before the event after a two day trip to get there from Taiwan. I didn't get all the changes done in time but it is what it is.
Thanks to the numerous people that played our two sample machines at Pinfest and provided us with CONSTRUCTIVE feedback. It has enabled us to tweak dozens of things and improve the machine overall.
We are in the process of having a professional video made but things like this are quite difficult to organise here in Taiwan. Some amateur videos posted on YouTube etc are deliberately modified to make our machine "look bad" - it's just sad how sick some people are.
Lastly, I have said this so many times, Homepin is not in the business of mass building of machines. We are a small, boutique family business. If we ship 20 machines a month that would suit us just fine. All production of TAP is sold past March next year so we are very pleased with things how they are.
To ‘PickHolder’ who said:
Saying that the AFM
strobe board is a pile of junk (Homepin tell me I have 'dirty data' on the output from the WPC power board, funny how on an oscilloscope it is perfect.... anyway different story)..... “
That is news to me, I have never said anything of the sort. Homepin is the ONLY company making this replacement board and we just have never had any complaints about them, not even from you. I have indeed said that there are dirty signals on the feed to the Data East magnet driver board, that is well known. Perhaps you are confused?
We offer a lifetime warranty on all boards we make so if you do indeed have a problem with an AFM
strobe board please contact me and we will resolve it but please stop spreading random BS
that is clearly untrue!
I don’t post much anywhere these days because there is just too much negativity around and plain lies posted as the AFM
story above. Seems like many want to see companies giving things a go, fail? Beats me what sort of mindset you need to follow that path? No matter what I post there are those that will pick it to pieces for reasons only known to themselves? Yes Jady, you included!
