Hi everybody,i am one of the Pinball Amigos..

We recently finished our first our first homebrew pinball machine running on a P-ROC and Mission Pinball Framework called:

Despicable me pinball madness!

We really enjoyed the process and we are currently setting up for our next build:

I really enjoy all dmd machines and owned a lot over the years.
Strange thing is,after being screwed by my favorite designer: John Popadiuk,(i was an Alice in wonderland buyer) i still have all his machines in my collection.
I just can't part with them,they really have that hook that keeps me coming back.
Apart from world cup soccer,the CV,TOTAN and TOM are simply the best machines out there for me.
That is mainly why i threw my hard earned money to Zidware, i wanted in...
I really don't understand the hype surrounding machines like Twilight zone,Road show and Indiana Jones and so on..I admit i totally dislike all Pat Lawlor machines..i mean,Funhouse was way ahead of it's time,but all lawlors machines lack "soul" i believe.
Machines like Scared stiff,junkyard,cactus canyon and Monster bash are beauties to look at,but feel rather shallow.
A lot of people talk trash about Sega machines,but the big screen series like Frankenstein,Maverick,baywatch and batman forever(batman being least favorite for me) are really cool machines in my opinion.
Also the earlier data east machines can be surprisingly fun in my opinion.
I played and owned all of them,some are clunky,some shallow,some are just nice lookers,but i am always on a quest for that one machine that gets that spark going..
At the moment I am really impressed by Jersey Jack..this man has the biggest pinballs of them WOZ ECLE never leaves my house again,although i get nowhere each time i play,collect 0 Jewels and will never be able to finish the whole game,i love every inch of it(it has a maximum of 5 balls,i need about 10 most of the time).
I would like to support highway pinball,but i really don't like the titles,but the framework they got is very clever and thought thru.
A while back I contacted spooky for an america's most haunted pinball,as I followed Ben Heck during the build,but they didn't want to ship me one to the Netherlands,which sucked...Ben has a good sense of humor and you find traces of that in the machine.bummer!
At this moment me and my buddies are building "Despicable me pinball madness" with a P-ROC controller board and we really enjoy the build.
