Re: Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal)

Yeah, but they get the tax back...

Re: Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal)

It is not a question of being good, it is not possible to even win a free game or make a skill shot for extra ball. The pinball machines at Northstar no longer provide the opportunity to win an extra ball or the chance to win a free game. Adam (one of the owners) explained that Northstar needs a per...

Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal), no free games

I went to Northstar last night for the first time this year. Very disappointed!!! The new machines no longer give free games or extra balls. These features are an important aspect of pinball and are part of what makes it exciting. Come on guys wake up!!! Without these features, it makes pinball play...

Re: Gottlieb Countdown - Part 2

The Mpu is new. It is a replacement board (modernized) that was working fine in the other countdown.

Perhaps the wire from the door to the MPU is no good

Thanks for the advice.

Gottlieb Countdown - Part 2

Hello, I replaced all the boards (power supply, CPU, and driver board) along with the cables form a working Count-down. The machine boots and everything seems to light up as it should. However, none of the buttons on the coin door work. I cannot start a game, add credits or even go into maintenance ...

Re: Gottlieb System 1 Sound board

Thank you everyone for the advice. Just as an FYI, my sound board can handle sounds in rapid succession (or triggers). The card I am using can handle 16 different sounds, which can be triggered by a 3v or 5v pulse (DC) or by closing of the loop (e.g. the two pins for sound #1 need to touch). On the ...
