Re: Guardians of the Galaxy First Look

I want to know about the music. The soundtrack is part of what made the movie so great. Anyone heard / have any insight into that?

Re: Time for a look refresh ?

Any way you can have the Location field of the user appear in their posts for the mobile version? It's inconvenient to have to log in and look at their profile to find that out when viewing the site on my phone. Otherwise, the look is just fine. Thanks for being open to suggestions!

Fortunately the 2018 Pinball Expo is going to be held Wednesday, October 17th - Sunday, October 20th, so no conflict there even.

Another vote for Oct 12-14 at the Sportsplex.

Re: WTB - Elektra or Mars God of War

If you ever do find your Elektra, I have a few game-specific parts in my basement, including the complete plastic playfield overlay. Grant, I'll buy those parts off of you, if you're looking to get them out of your basement. My Elektra is in good shape (knock on wood), but doesn't hurt to have spar...

Re: Novice questions about lights and fuses

If a 10A fuse worked before, it will work again. Install what is called for on the fuseholder; manuals are frequently wrong. Basically, do not put a larger fuse... Both the manual and fuseholder say 15A, but 10A did work before even without LEDs, so I'll stick with that. I'll put the incandescents ...

Novice questions about lights and fuses

I decided to swap out some of the incandescent bulbs on the playfield of my Super Soccer with LEDs just to see how they looked, and when I turned on the machine, none of the lights in the backbox came on. Turns out I had blown a fuse. It was a 10A, but the schematics call for a 15A in that place. My...

Re: Sorcerer issues/ phantom tilt

I echo what ALJO said. I had a similar issue with my Stars and it turned out that a couple of light sockets had broken loose and one was swinging into the tilt mechanism. Based on the triggering of the "sorcerer laugh" maybe check that outlane area first? Good luck!

Apparently pinball is considered a sport. :)

They were filming this at PAPA, so I've been keeping an eye out for it and thought some of you would enjoy it as well.
