I played the T2 at iBowl about 3 months ago.

One of the flippers would just jackhammer like crazy when you held the button in.

This made it almost unplayable.

Bally.

Cosmetically its in decent shape. There is a thick rubbery sheet of what seems like erosion tape as opposed to mylar on the playfield which forces the ball to deviate a bit. The game plays strong but the right flipper could use a rework.

Thx for the updates folks.

Your efforts help to keep location pins in good shape.

Feel free to email the Canadian Public Pinball Tracker URL to any operators whose email address you may know.

A little visibility on the state of their pins might prompt repairs in order to keep revenue flowing and/or could also save needless driving miles to locations where a pin is in fine order.

Done; operator worksheet added to the end of the spreadsheet, and three Ontario operators added.

Cool. I hope that the operators and everyone else sees this as an ability to improve our knowledge of what is out there and the condition these games are in. I hope that the concept is productive for everyone.

I would hate to hassle or harass the operators in knowing of the existence of the spreadsheet, but I think it's beneficial to all operators out there to let us know where their machines are.

Are there any operators seeing this right now? Do you have any thoughts on this public access?

Halifax Stanford International airport. Adams Family and Fish Tales
Physically both games are in good condition. They could use some switch adjustments (pop bumpers and slingshots) along with being levelled.

Both games are in the tracker. Condition updated and operator info to be incorporated.

Well I'm getting pretty tired of Google spreadsheets - all data and tabs are now gone. :x

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... aenc#gid=0

I have a backup; can anyone suggest a more secure way to keep this up? Otherwise I may have to abandon it altogether :(

I had a look today and it seemed that a lot of titles had been removed from the "Ontario - East & Central" page...hmmmm interesting...and not in a good way.
This may have been an intentional act, it may have been due to viewing the spreadsheet on my smartphone...which I doubt.

Do I have to lock the spreadsheet and allow admin privileges to a sect few?

I was hoping it wouldn't come to this and I really wanted to keep all editing public in order to get lots of up to date input. Due to reported tampering and damage the Canadian Public Pinball Tracker has suffered over the last few month, it might have to.

Again, the Canadian public Pinball Tracker is intended to benefit both players as well as operators.
It indicates repairs that are needed as well as preventing people from driving across town to play only to find a pin that is Out Of Order. The data is only good if current, input by all greatly helps with this.

I certainly hope minor faults that don't effect gameplay are not being reported as "pin is in poor shape" as this benefits no one.

If you are a player, do your part for public pinball and make entries as soon as you can after playing. This keeps an operator from wasting time, money and effort by checking a pin that is in fine shape If their ARE faults that DO substantially affect gameplay or the pin is busted, enter the info on the tracker so repairs can occur.Even better, indicate the suspected fault if you're a bit
pin-mechanics savvy. If you're an operator, have a look at the tracker regularly so you'll know when a "wonky" pin could be effecting your revenue.

If the tracker has to go private, data input could slow down considerably and depend on when admins have the time to input data from received emails. (If they are even willing to commit their time and effort to be custodians of the tracker). "Out of Order" or "needs repair" listings may sit needlessly too long, with fully functional pins being avoided by players due to being seen as broken. Less play, less revenue; lose/lose for both player as well operator.

Much like The Canadian Public Pinball Tracker, CONSTRUCTIVE comments are welcome as are suggestions.
The "BEST" pinball is the one that YOU love the most!
