    Your game is complete without a topper. Also, the only time I ever look at the screen is when I have to make a choice. I can't imagine how annoying it would be to look all the way up at the top of the box for information. Good for those that want it. But I feel the need to respond because there are so many posts about a topper YOUR GAME IS COMPLETE WITHOUT A TOPPER. Unless it’s whirlwind

    You should get a cheap burner if you beta test software as changes could come really quickly.... Sometimes multiple times a day. There would be a limit on the jackpot either due to where it's stored or just a general limit on the score for instance roller games has a hard limit on score of 99,999,990 and would turn over. Whirlwind can score into the 100 millions someone got 125m on the one I used to have and only stopped because the right flipper link melted.

    I vote GB. only topper to spawn close to original recreations. Flashes every time the sirens go off in the game. Perfect. I do like a good topper that actually has functionality and goes with the theme rather than ones that are static or just repeat what is already present (looking at you DE Jurrasic Park, Batman, Hook) Last Action Hero, Ghostbusters, Whirlwind, Twister, Godfather, Black Knight SOR, F14 , Fire are all good examples.

F-14 is one of those few games that I want as blindingly bright as possible because the light show is so good.

    On the cut-outs in the playfield for the ramp flaps, you need to add a cushion or the metal flap will bend upwards. Or if its a plastic ramp, the plastic will crack from ball impacts. Originally they put a piece of thin neoprene in the square cut-out. I just put a piece of VHB tape (cut to fit) and leave the thick plastic backing on it. Never heard of this before, just building a major Whirlwind project , perfect timing. Thanks for the tip

    Nervous but hoping it's not much more difficult than shopping out a machine? You'll have to completely de-populate the playfield topside and sand it down (at least over the inserts). You can leave everything underside attached, so I'd say, more difficult than a shop, but less difficult than a swap. Use it as an excuse to get new ramps from starship. It's worth it. Taxi is easily one of the better System 11s (I've come to like it even more than Whirlwind), and my hardtop has been performing flawlessly.

    New Williams Remake Manufacturer coming Post #1106 in topic

    Posted 62 days ago by SimplePin – in Boutique pinball ‐ Last reply 58 days ago

    Assuming you are talking Pedretti, the next logical choice for them would be Whirlwind. I say this because they already have done much of the programming work with their Whirlwind 2.0 kits. 90% of the work appears to have already been done. Would Whirlwind really be a good choice? Plenty of Whirlwinds out there under $5k. Seems like less of a logical choice than Funhouse. Again another game where I prefer the original over a remake.

    Are there any rumours on the next remake. I will be passing on funhouse as it has never been a machine or theme I enjoyed playing. Assuming you are talking Pedretti, the next logical choice for them would be Whirlwind. I say this because they already have done much of the programming work with their Whirlwind 2.0 kits. 90% of the work appears to have already been done.

    Diner Owners Club...Can I Take Your Order ? Post #2031 in topic

    Posted 63 days ago by newovad – in All clubs (...members only!) ‐ Last reply yesterday

    Would someone please take a measurement from the back and bottom of the cab for the playfield hinge bolts? I'm using a Whirlwind cab and the positioning for those original bolts is most certainly not going to work. Seems that Diner is more comparable to the Mousin' that I have but was hoping for something specific from an OG. Thanks.

    Official FUNHOUSE(tm) REMAKE Post #39 in topic

    Posted 68 days ago by MooButt – in Boutique pinball ‐ Last reply 14 days ago

    So it has the Rudy's Nightmare stuff, which I guess isn't too surprising, but does it default to it? Definitely odd times as a new remake manufacturer after what happened with Haggis. Wish you guys luck, and we're watching you. Pedretti is a much more established, and larger, company than Haggis. This is an easy first release for them. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Whirlwind next. Hopefully they can capture that Bally/Williams feel.

    The Big Door Prize on Apple. Season 2 Ep 1. About five minutes into the show they walk past two pins. They both have fake replacement backglasses. I can tell the one is a Whirlwind.

    RE: Buying the topper - No topper is worth $1000+ IMO... but this one is damn cool so if you want it get it while you can... $1500 is about half what people were asking for them on the secondary market. It's the best damn topper ever made. Fishtails, whitewater, and whirlwind coming after it, imo.
