I too would like an update to let us know whether these will make it before Christmas... I know delays are inevitable, but it's already slipped by months... :-/ There was no update in November. Here's to hoping it's because they're pulling off a Hail Mary and they couldn't spare the few minutes and update would take so they could get units shipped in time for the holidays... :)
It would be appropriate for you to provide your backers with an update with good or bad news.
Any update on shipment? Looking like it’s not going to happen for Christmas.
Seeing all 3 so far really excited to see the next 7!.. trying to figure out the shape.?
Replicade is the best!
Is the LCD in Tempest higher DPI than Centipede?
For Centipede it was perfect, but for vectors, a higher DPI will look more authentic.
Can “Service Menu” be added to Centipede’s menu (and/or Tempest) with a firmware update?
I was disappointed I can’t change the options like number of starting players, game difficulty, high score clear, screen / trak-ball tests, etc. that are functions of the ROM / dip switches.
I still have never recieved my Backer Reward for Centipede, Kinda Worried since I backed this one too :(
Another creation of passion for the original! Cannot wait to get this next to my Centipede. Love the metal core for the big spinner.
Thanks David and we will have more information soon on Street Fighter!
We will have more info on both Production date and shipping date soon (info should be in our next update)!
Hey Roger, we are still working on a Firmware upgrade for the Centipede Trak Ball Power Drain and will hopefully have more information soon!
We have not featured Street Fighter as much as we have not done the presale yet (end of the month), but will have a lot more information soon!
As for the custom builds, we have had some people ask us and we will certainly consider it.
Hey Michael, the plan is to have a presale on our website at the end of the month. Stay tuned!
We will have more info on both Production date and shipping date soon (should be our next update)!
Hey Matthew, the fix we did for Tempest we cannot do for Centipede, as we had to go into the PCBA (Motherboard) and change the layout of the whole board to optimize battery performance and eliminate battery drain.
However, we are still working on a Firmware upgrade for the Centipede Trak Ball Power Drain and will hopefully have more information soon!
Hey guys, it says right in the update that they changed the printed circuit boards to fix the problem, not a software fix. So no, there probably won't be a fix for Centipede.
I'm interested in the Street Fighter unit as well as any others they will make. Unbelievable that they would have that in the photos and then not mention it..!
Would you rather have a ship date and then they miss it or have them give you the date when they themselves know it?
Patience, young padawans..
Thanks for the update. Only thing that was missing was any info on the ship date. Is it still scheduled to get to us by early December or will these changes push back the delivery date?
I second Matthew S's question. Will there ever be a fix for Centipede other than, "Hey! Leave that thing plugged in!"
The Street Fighter cab looked nice. I don't remember seeing it featured any where before. Is it possible to order just housings or parts from you in case we wanted to use the same scale for our own projects? I experiment with making my own mini cabs. I bet there are others like me who would like to make custom units based on the same dimensions.
Saw in the second to last photo the street fighter cab and saw it on your website, are you launching that on kickstarter, or just on your site?
Ship date? Will it be shipped before Christmas?
So, can the power issue on Centipede be addressed based on what you did for Tempest?
