Re: Need Professional Help Setting Up Pinball Machines

If I were a little closer and had a little more time.... I would do it for free. It really isnt too bad of a process, and it sounds like a pretty easy move.

Good luck!

Re: Data East display

Good luck... hopefully someone will have bought a ColorDMD and has an old plasma laying around. If not, I can vouch for the quality of the PinLED display I bought for a DE Batman I bought a long time ago. https://www.pinled.de/en/p/dotmatrix-display-128-x-16 There is always colordmd as well, but tho...

Re: FS: Earthshaker

Tell me more about this retirement hobby... It is something I think I could stay in for a very long time if given the opportunity. :D


Do you have a keeper list of games to keep you somewhat entertained in your retirement hobby?

Re: FS: Maverick

Agreed... Mark is top notch... Once upon a time, I owned this machine too, and will go on record as to saying it is my 2nd favorite card themed pinball machine behind Joker Poker.

Really underated game.

Re: Williams F-14

Super fair deal at 1500, playfield looks really nice.

Factory settings could be something as simple as dead batteries in the backbox.

Re: Stern insider connect - thoughts

I think it is pretty cool, but at the same time, it all depends on the implementation. Being able to update your software on the fly would be nice, and it would be kind of cool to see a special mode applied to a machine for a one-day mini tournament, or something along those lines. That all being sa...

Re: Plasma effect Williams DMD - weird transformer jumper wiring

My money is on the rottendog. Setting that jumper back over is a good move, but if the machine worked this long without issue, I can't imagine it being anything other than the Rottendog. My whitewater had a similar issue, except it screenshifted the whole display left by two inches, and then did wei...

Re: Plasma effect Williams DMD - weird transformer jumper wiring
