I remember the first time I entered an arcade it was at a campground. They had all the coolest stuff at the time NBA JAM NFL Blitz MK1 MK2 and MK3 but they never had any pinball.
I didnt see my first pin until I was 9 and my friends grandfather had TMNT and a Playboy and he used to let us play them for hours after little leauge practice and fast forward to high school when we both got square body chevy pickups and girlfriends nothing else seem to matter lol. As the years pass by i forget about all that stuf and head down a slippery slope. After high school i started off schore fishing and getting into "that way of living" and would go out on 20-45 day trips on the ocean and every time i landed at shore id find somehwere to get some sleep drink some beer and play some pinball lol little did I know back then that it would later become my passion.
I recently started working at a Computer Repair shop that slowly has converted into a Video Game/ Computer Repair and Sales/Vape Shop and free play arcade in the matter of 14 months and all games at our locations have either A been built by me free play multicades are not that bad if your not charging money to play them, And games that we bought with issues and I have googled and wikid the hell out of to figure out Starting with a Williams Jubilee that wouldnt reset. We broke it down cleaned all contacts replaced two coils and a couple springs and what do you know a playable game!! Nect came a Lucky Seven That was very clean but only the GI was working as far as gameplay nothing was registering. A local friend named Adam told me about the Rotten Dog MPU and after some convining to my boss he paid for the part and i tell you its got at least 100 plays in the last two weeks.
This is what brings me to my next pickup the totally Awsome game Williams Jokerz that was picked up just two days ago and i want playable so what can you say about a hacked transformer??? Becuase i have 0 drop targets..... No multiball kickout... and weak as heck flippers but everything that powers them as far as colis looks cleaner then a virgin yet the wring is all hacked!!!!
This is my pinstory after years on the water and inprison i never thought I would be fixing and playing Pinballs but through Pinside and some helpful friends I have been able to get a couple running I thank you all in Advance for any help.
