Re: Cybercid MPL 26 avril 2019

Can someone going to the meeting sell me a pair of Cointaker LEDs yellow light frosted dome wedge base?
Starburst sold me this brand last fall, but they don't carry them anymore.
I'd like the same brand because I'm only missing two and these LEDs are very visible above my LAH playfield.

Re: Question regarding Roms

Are we talking recent Stern with a USB stick or an older alpha-numeric or DMD like you own? For an older machine, the ROMs are complete and self-contained. The code runs from the ROMs, the programming is not copied to some other storage where it could be altered. So you can't lose anything in the ne...

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

I finally got Arnold's crane and tar pit to work fully for the first time.
I also learned you cannot remove turns from a Gottlieb flipper coil because the big wire is buried deep underneath the thin wire. All I could achieve was 1 less turn.

Re: Question regarding Roms

If the new ROM forces a factory reset, I am pretty sure it would be the factory defaults programmed in the new ROMs.
The easy/normal/hard settings are just shortcuts to set multiple individual settings you can control.
Just take a note of your old settings and put them back after you upgrade the ROMs.

Re: TZ Flippers Died - Advice wanted

Bad connectors might increase resistance in the circuit and cause the voltage drop. No idea if that's your problem but it's easy to measure if it happens again.

Re: TZ Flippers Died - Advice wanted

If you replace a fuse without fixing the underlying problem, it might just blow instantly.
Did you check your new fuse was still good?

You said you were in switch test mode, did you try the coil test mode?

There was an Orbitor-1 at the Ottawa Pinball & Gameroom Show in 2017. Not sure if it was there again in 2018 since nobody could get in.

Re: Cosmic Carnival by Suncoast Pinball

I asked Jeff at thisweekinpinball what the unique inner lane was, and the answer is the orbit that ends near the clown ear. What's unique about it is the lack of an inner wall and the gap in the metal guide at the apex of the loop.

He is friends with a/some designers. He buys LE's to flip so he is friends with some distributors. Mostly, he represents counter culture, so he gets many insider emails. For example, Robert Mueller has used Kaneda very effectively so far.

Re: Kaneda rumors

Jerk alert. Kaneda now says TBL is not happening.
He says Brian Eddy is working on Elvira 3 with Lyman.
Pinball Bros next one is Queen built by Chicago Gaming.
Take it with a continent of salt.

Kaneda also claims Magic Girl and Alice will not come out in 2019, which makes RAZA the likely machine Deeproot will give to Zidware customers.

Kaneda rumors

For what it’s worth, Kaneda claims Dutch Pinball settled with ARA and they will make new Big Lebowski machines. Kaneda also claims Pinball Brothers contracted Chicago Gaming to make more Aliens possibly coming out in a month.
That’s amazing if it’s true. Please take with a mountain of salt.
