I'm developing a full size custom pinball machine, built from the ground up by myself. It features an Arduino Mega 2560, Chipkit Max32, SD card reader, 3 MP3 Trigger shields, Power boards etc.
Feel free to comment and check out my building blog at [url]http://poormanspinball.blogspot.com[/url].
A lot more information and pictures of the build is available there!

Here's a few snaps for you. :) Current setup of the machine is:
Around 300 meter cabling, 11 solenoids, 1 magnet, 64 switches, 96 lights, 2 DPSI ports and ~100 000 lines code. Almost all pins in use on the Max32 too. Hope you like it! :ugeek:

Wow. This is unbelievable. What a complex system - it looks great. How does it play?

Thanks! Yeah, it plays pretty good too! A early playtest can be seen here -> [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSkJ4B1UJEM[/url] The machine plays better than it looks on the video however, depending on if it's me or my SO that plays... :roll:
Recent changes in code has improved response times and overall snappiness of the machine many times, so now things are hitting too hard instead of a bit softer like in the video... Will tweak this once the game play code is final but it doesn't stand out as a "fake" next to a commercial machine. All parts are genuine pinball parts and it even got the coin mechanism installed, but I need gambling permits to have it enabled... ;)
