Re: The history of hard drivin arcade documentary

I remember walking up to the mall after school to play this one. We nick named it the `Cow game` :) Also went from C64, C128, Amiga, sadly to PC when there was no much life left in Commodore. We also had a Colecovision Adam before the C64, so now I have dated myself! Anyone else remember typing in t...

Re: Dealing with the wife

Buy the pinball, hide it at a friends place for a few weeks until you get the balls the drag it home. Don't ask questions, just ask for forgiveness later :)

Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

Fun game! Kind of regret selling mine. I bet I had 80-100 hours into it with the new PF.

Re: Got The Grail

It's even more rare than my Star Race. Which would be a better game if they had finished the sounds! Just doesn't seem finished in programming there.

I collect system80's if anyone wants to part with one :)

Visiting Montreal

I'll be visiting Montreal Sunday through all next week. Anyone available for some pinball one evening? I haven't met most of the crew down that way, but would love to meet up for a few games.

On another note - I'll likely have space to haul something back towards Toronto if anyone needs anything.

Colours were terrible on my F2K backglass from CPR. Maybe they fixed that with their new process?

I could use this. I have an aftermarket reprint and it's too thick/dark.

80B can also be identified by the missing display driver chips on the top right. It can be converted with a bit of work.

Re: OT: What would you do ? ( Car repair question)

Buy used, save a tonne. The newest car I've owned is 2010. My favorite family car is my old 2004 VW Passat Wagon. Fits 4 adults with room to spare! Lots of rear leg room. Other option might be a complete used engine rather than replacing the head. Probably $3-400 for a wrecker engine and 8 hours lab...

Re: Canada PinCon 2019 Statement

My son and I enjoyed Pincon last year. However I underestimated the workload in packing up, hauling, unloading, setup, tear down, hauling and final setup of 5 machines back home. I'd be happy to come again, but I'll probably only bring 1-2 machines.

Thanks Chris for your efforts.

There is an app where you can take a picture of the Japanese characters and it will translate.
