Quoted from rosh:

Often you can use an opto to handle that wide entrance, but given what else we have going on in that area, there was just no place to put it.

Quoted from rosh:

Looks like the pop sub assembly station has completed quite a few pop mechs and those are ready to get moved to the station on the assembly line as needed.
Note that we are using lugless coils in most places which reduces risk of electrical issues and speeds up assembly on the line. All coils, except flippers, are 23-800

looks great....... but i hate the Data East klak klak klak sound from the pop bumpers.
They make this sound because of the plastic housing.
Newer pinball machines also have stronger pops (timing), so i hope the plastic won't break.

"We are still working on it, we are also trying to see if we can just include the blades. I'm not optimistic since we have already gone over the BOM that was set, but looking to see if we can find a way ".

You always can give them free (in a bag in the cabinet) for the first 100 buyers

If you read my old Houdini comments in the old houdini boutique tread i was Always possitive when some people where very sceptic that it was impossible to build a new houdini machine in a very short time.
Wel.... congraculations Josh and your team, the machine looks awesome.
Very very nice indeed.
