I was there...

Postby Pindude152 » Sat Jul 22, 2017 10:43 am

I was there... Took a $20 cab ride from the NYNY to the PHOF.
Played mostly EM pins for a little over 3 hours.
Didnt take any decent pictures of the place :FP:

Good stuff. Too busy having fun to take pictures, it's ok.

Haha, fake 7-segment displays, that's pretty cool! I just thought of an idea to make a fake DMD... use a lenticular print... move your head and the image changes. OK, it wouldn't work that well, but it could be freaky.

Duh, took me a while to understand. These are still mechanical reels made to look like digital displays. They come standard with the machine.
At first I thought this was a mod with digital displays emulating reels.
