Have a question?
I wonder if any of us would be interested in this Kickstarter for Pinbox 3000?
Ah, such a pity! As a owner of a real Flight 2000 I was sooo looking forward to it.
I could imagine the recent price announcemtn for the Oculus played some part. Alas, that's the way it is.
Thank You for that project, anyway. If there is a relaunch, you can count me in at any time!
It's a pity to see the campaign fail so close to the required amount. This should encourage you to try again later, and I'd suggest coming back with a plan to post very regular updates so that there's always new content for the media to report on.
Aw, man! This failed? I thought it was a sure bet! Will you relist the project soon?
I had an early bird pledge and just up it to the wizard level or $45.
Even at $45 this is a bargain.
if every current backer upped their pledge by 24$ we can still make it :-)
I just upped mine by 30 :-)
While I really like this project, I think that you should pull it for a month or two, and relaunch it with a better publicity campaign. I would be happy to do what I can to help out.
One feature I think would give you a lot of leverage is a mode that lets you create a table that can be shared or sold,that basically wraps it up into an un-editable stand alone game.
Someone uploaded the Demo running in a virtual pinball cabinetcabinet!

Reddit is one of the best places to post but requires the posts to come organically from individuals who have posted quality content to each subreddit in question. Otherwise they will flag and remove an posts as being too self-promoting.
Requires a lot more posts on VR forums, redit etc...
And one post on Steam, it's incomprehensible...
This needs more publicity... I've seen posts about it on pinballarcadefans and vpforums... one should think that alone should be enough to make this happen...
I just came across this with only a few days to go. I really hope it gets funded. I see this as the filler for the hole that is left by the developer of future pinball disappearing. I just posted this on the threads that I follow on pinside. I did find your thread but it got lost to me with all the other noise.
Backed on highest level!!!
Just backed it... Would love to see a couple of CG avatars spectating.. Perhaps standing beside the machine watching as you hit multi-ball!!!
Hi @James Surine, I'm pretty certain it won't work with 0.5. I know it will work with 0.7 and up and I think it works with 0.6 as well.
If you want you can disable the Oculus Runtime and just run the demo in non-VR mode just to check it out until you are able to upgrade the runtime.
What version of oculus SDK do I need to have installed? Still on 0.5 for Elite.
Hi Matthew, controller support is already built in (works with the demo). That's the way I prefer to play as well, using the shoulder buttons on my Xbox controller.
I'm excited about "Stereoscopic support for 3D TVs and monitors"
...and be sure to allow for partial XBox 360 support during the actual game. The editor doesn't need support, but a controller should be usable for the table/gameplay.
Let's get this funded, this is too good to not finish!
This looks like the virtual pinball editor I've been waiting for! I'm enthusiastically backing this project!
Incredibly excited for this project! Good luck Tom
