Arcooda Re-opened December 1st!
We have kickstarted our Arcooda Video Pinball: Take 2 Relaunch with the introduction of a new, versatile machine; the Dynasty Vertical Pinball machine.
The Dynasty Vertical Pinball machine takes a horizontal video pinball machine and turns it into a space-saving alternative. It adds its own unique features to make it one of the most innovative products on the market. It features impressive programmable LED lighting, three high definition monitors for the backglass, playfield and DMD, side buttons for pinball games and more!
However, the Dynasty Vertical Pinball machine is more than just a pinball machine. Users can easily link their Steam accounts and PCs for arcade gameplay and access to endless games. The machine has a twin set of joystick buttons on its control panel to recreate the classic arcade feel on the one machine.
For more information, keep an eye on Arcooda’s social media channels or contact their office at email@example.com. We’ll be making periodic announcements for more product information.
Arcooda Video Pinball relaunches this week with Arcooda Video Pinball: Take 2. After being quiet for a while, the team at Arcooda are back with three new products and a variety of exciting news to share.
Stay tuned for more information coming soon.
For any Arcooda Pinball customers, our staff have contacted you via email and there are new updates in the private blog. Please check them out when you have the chance.
Arcooda are happy to announce Kinect support will now come free with their PC Steam Cabinet Mode, Generic Cabinet Standalone and Arcooda Cabinet version software. This means users who have already purchased any of these products will have access to this feature at no extra cost.
To access this capability, Arcooda have advised customers with the Generic or Arcooda Cabinet software they will need to manually update their firmware. Customers with the Steam Unlock version will have this feature automatically installed by update. Arcooda still have software packages available until sold out.
Game play with Kinect is as easy as plugging your Kinect into your cabinet and enabling Kinect game play in the options menu. This will mean the Kinect camera will track your body movements, adjust the game play visual to the angle you are standing on and show the player a dynamic rendering of the 3D playfield.
