    Hey all, I’m reaching the point of no return on the Pin*Bot project. I’m willing to do a Jack*Bot conversion if I can build it in tandem with PB and the resources line up reasonably well, but once the ship sails on Pin*Bot I don’t have much interest in returning to do Jack*Bot at a later time. So far no acceptable resources have surfaced (not even close).

    If you or a loved one have the ability or means please help make Jack*Bot happen. Redraw the playfield (I have a template for you), harass your uncle to let you strip down the playfield on his JB and scan it, drive down to the VFW and offer them $500 for the broken JB pinball machine in the corner then ship it to me.

    I don’t have much stake in whether JB gets built or not, just wanted to clarify that JB isn’t happening without some additional resources.

    Don’t know if it is worthwhile, but it is possible to strip out the textures from the TPA version using pbatools.

    I don’t have TPA except on my tablet. Can anyone do the extract for me? I’d like to see what is there.

    I don’t know what I’m doing, but I can take a crack at it. It was ninuzzu that did extracts for me on a couple of projects.

    I know, I know. I’m trying to be really picky so I can back out when my Big Game project starts calling.

    In case there isn’t a notification, I PM’ed you an URL to a website that may (hopefully) have some usable photos of the playfield. Hope it helps. :)

    Things are lining up pretty well. Here is the PF sitting in the Pinbot VPX.

    Strange number of JB playfield variants out there.

    LOL Yup. I’m already trying to figure out which minor differences from Pinbot I can skip over.

    Ah man I hope you can pull this together – Jack bot is awesome.

    When say redraw the playfield, you mean the artwork into high res? I could if supplied with the reference images and can redraw in Illustrator.

    @Jamie – great to know. I am going to get some photos of the upper playfield together and I will let you know what the need is. Thanks!

    I guess I’m still on the hook to extract from TPA? Or maybe not?  :whistle:

    I think we’re good for now. Will keep you posted if I need anything from TPA. Thanks!
