Managed to figure out why my Speakeasy was tilting by itself when I had people over. Of course, it always worked fine the next day...

I finally left it on all day without playing it and it happened. The heat was causing one of the eproms to become flaky. Power cycling it while it was hot resulted in a failed rom test on the MPU.

I received a package today. A very special package.

asset1.JPG

Seems to be in good shape. I wonder what's inside?

asset2.JPG

Hrm. Seems to be another box.

Image

asset3.JPG

Can you recognize the game from the reverse? What's going on here? What could it possibly be?

Image

asset4.JPG

Yes! That's right! It's a Meteor playfield, new old stock. In fact, it's the one CPR scanned for their unreleased reproduction. Ready for a very minor touch up and clear coat. Excited!

Dunno... I will make up a name. "Tri wheel dolly"

Find them at princess auto. You can also find them at Canadian Tire or Rona for 2-3X the price of Princess Auto.

Freshened up the LEDs in both Tag Team and Dragon before this weekend's show. They are now both bright and beautiful and ready to go.

Hrm, almost. Still have to reconnect the tilt bob in Dragon to protect it from you hooligans.

As an aside, anyone who can bring three Comet Optix Maximus in Sunlight White will be a real hero: I miscounted before ordering.

Solved the mystery of why no two meteors have the Kirk post in exactly the same place... It was never part of the drilling registration in the factory. The NOS playfield doesn't have the hole!

Super cool! The position of the post has such a tremendous influence on the play of the game (I call using Steve's out-hole post "the parachute shot": Assume that your parachute is going to open and DO NOT touch those flippers!), so this is surprising. Very weird.
