Just Another Pinball Podcast: Interview with Scott Danesi

Last week, Scott Danesi joined Just Another Pinball Podcast – here are just a couple highlights:

On the Total Nuclear Annihilation Rerun:

Scott Danesi: I have some big things planned for when TNA gets rerun.  So I have been working on the software.  And when TNA rerun happens, I am going to launch code for that game which is also backwards compatible with existing machines.  Everyone wins…the TNA games that come out, the remake ones are going to be wired the same way, they will have the same computers in them.  They will be as same as possible to the originals, because I want the code to run on [both].

On the display on the new TNA:

Scott Danesi: If you look at Rick and Morty display panel, it has that metal display panel that holds the LCD, that will be on the TNA 2.0.  So that is going to be a difference.

Scott also talks about the P-ROC boards, talks about how he got into tinkering with pinball machines, talks about his work on Bride of Pinbot 2.0, talks about when he joined Pinball Life, talks about how Wizard of Oz impacted his light show on Total Nuclear Annihilation, talks about working with generic/standard parts, talks about the story of TNA, talks about not including ramps on TNA, talks about trying to make TNA a social game that you can play with your friends, talks about his love for music and how that impacted TNA, talks about co-op mode, talks about building and designing TNA, talks about the different iterations of the playfield mechs, talks about the Danesi Lock and others that have used that previously, talks about the pop bumper and why he included that where it was (and why it is BRUTAL), talks about putting the pop bumper in the spot of the left sling on Rick and Morty, talks about removing the rollovers from TNA for the production machine, talks about the display for the ball save, talks about how many whitewood iterations he did for TNA, talks about the reactor 3 music, talks about the beacon topper, talks about all the code updates he has and is doing with the game, that TNA is a passion project, and much more.
