The Getaway - High Speed II

Recommended Posts

I figured I'd create this thread so that it is known that I am working on colourising The Getaway. I can't say that it's a fast process and I am trying to learn as I go. If I manage to finish this project (which at this stage I still think I will fight it out) I might look at a couple of other games that I really want. This one was chosen as I thought there were less scenes to colour and I could learn before attacking the ones I really want to see in colour.

it looks great !!!!!!!! good luck  :)

Thanks... I think I am learning as I go so hopefully it works OK in the end. It's not been a fast project but I didn't expect it to be. Just spending time doing it when I can and sacrificing what would be pinball playing time.

Unfortunately it is a shit-load of work. That's why I guess you see a few projects started that seems to have stalled. I think you way of looking at it is very healthy. Not overdoing any day so you get so bored you don't want to see the editor ever again :)

I agree with fly here, you're off to a very nice start.

Given the hours I've already spent I'm keen on getting it finished. If I can't get it finished, I'll release it in a usable state.

With the help I was given from Rappelbox and then some advice from Lucky1 I hope I am on the right track. It have given me a much better understanding of what needs to be done and things to try to make it easier.

I am tinkering a little and trying things to see if the scenes will display correctly as I have a problem where scenes aren't behaving properly.

I still have no idea how to colourise the video mode and I'm not sure how I am supposed to do the burn rubber scenes but that could be a long process.

Thanks for the words of encouragement from you and Fly. 

I have been approached by someone who has a real Getaway machine who has asked for me to extract it for him. Is that as simple as extracting it for Real Pin or do I need to do something with the serial number of the device as I read somewhere else?

I am considering setting up a Tips button as well. I don't plan on charging for the work, but if anyone want to gift me something for the hours I wouldn't be opposed to it :D

their is a high probability that your work will end up for sale in some website.

if I was you I would go to pinside start a thread,  and set a price for Real Pinball project release

This might seem  like a D!ick move in your part.

But if anyone should be making money on your project it should be YOU!!!!.

 

the simspons author was asking for $20 donations, but I"m sure their are people distributing  his project behind his back.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pin2dmd-led-color-dmd-user-colorization-projects

 

someone was willing to do the project you are doing but they where asking for a full Pin2DMD set up

if you have a set price ($300-$400) as the HS2 would be author suggested.  You can get   multiple real cab owners to chip in and only cover part of the set price for you.

IMHO this is not a very clever advice.

You should have in mind that you might have to ask planetary pinball before you sell a Bally Williams colorization if it contains copyrighted material because they are the license owner. It is never a good idea to sell copyrighted material because you might get sued for it.

That is one of the reasons why visual pinball and pinmame is strictly non commercial.

I completely agree with you,  its sad that we have to even discuss this.

unfortunately their will be people that will try to sell this,  their is a reason why Pin2DMD and the editor requires a registration code.

I only suggested this for the real pinball projects not for Virtual Cab use.  Then again don't listen to me,  its your project, feel free to do what you think is best.

and I suggested you take donations not to sell copyrighted material,  if real pinball users wanted this they would likely donate enough money  to have a  link to your project.

Sad, but might be true. Just like people selling visual pinball and tables. You will always find such scumbags in communities like this.
The only way to stop them is by letting people know that they buy from scumbags.

We introduced the v-pin export in the editor that the project can´t be used with real pinball machines.
That way users have to contact the author to get a real pin version of the colorization and maybe donate for it, if they want to. Currently I don´t know
of any website selling pin2dmd colorizations. If you know of one, please send me a PM and I will try to initiate countermeasures.

I always release all my files for free, can't stop people from being assholes and selling them, but I can help people learn to color games themselves using my work as a resource.

 

I started, but never finished this game =)  No idea why the GIF isnt animating properly
