Quoted from pinnyheadhead:

I turned up GOTG so loud I got asked to turn down by the staff. Worth it.

The first rule of secret volume control is....

Quoted from ATLpb:

You found the secret- volume ctrl for all

do you have a pic of what this looks like? Does someone make a kit to do this or are you doing it yourself?

Kit available on pinballlife.com

https://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=2894

Once I got external volume control I could never look back. My home games typically get pinnovators while my loc games get pin-vol.

Nicest Black Spidey ever to be on location!? joining the fold tomorrow night at My Parents Basement in time for our first Wed of the Month monthly tournament. Foo Fighters heading to SFGE.

I’ll take the door and emblem off Spidey... it’s a virtual guarantee that the emblem would disappear! ...not from a nefarious pinhead, but a kid with wandering hands!

WOOT. Glad I get to play “4 armed thing on a stick” at SFGE

Real talk - how are your super minty pins holding up on route? Every pin you have on route is better than most home collection pins.

Thanks for compliment. They are holding up extremely well. Stern/Spike aren’t perfect but I stand by them. They’ve made this possible for me.

In 8-9 mos I’ve fixed only a handful of issues, honestly not much more than I would have had to fix if these games were home with a microscopic fraction of the plays. Bulk of my time is spent consistently cleaning them, replacing rubbers, tightening screws, and of course, mixing up the selection keeps me very busy- case in point, Black Spidey going in tonight.

Here is a cool local article by Creative Loafing Atlanta, about Iron Maiden, My Parents Basement, and of course, my pinball machines.

It’s a weird PDF type view thingy of the print article that requires zooming.

Check volume on IM - sound is out. Enjoyed playing GOTG.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Jeff, are you sure someone didn’t just turn the volume down? Most of the games have external volume.

#115 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

Yeah I’m sure it was just turned down. Crank it back up next time you play

#116 1 year ago

Crank them up! Unless you get busted for having games too loud like I did playing GOTG last month.

#117 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

Jeff, are you sure someone didn’t just turn the volume down? Most of the games have external volume.

No I tried that, volume at 40 couldn't hear a peep. Maybe it was turned down from inside coin door.

Quoted from pinnyheadhead:

Crank them up! Unless you get busted for having games too loud like I did playing GOTG last month.

How high did you go did you reach 11 on the dial? I always wondered if they'd blow if you turned them all the way up.

#118 1 year ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

How high did you go did you reach 11 on the dial? I always wondered if they'd blow if you turned them all the way up.

Don't know how high it was. Loud enough to get the stank eye from the staff.

Decided to buy GOTG for my house where no one can tell me to turn it down. Well except for my wife.

Next to the volume there is a mute toggle switch.

plenty of room in MY basement to hold onto both of those that are coming off of route for you

curious: was WWELE not doing well on route? or is 10 the max number you can put in?

GOTG is a great machine folks, ignore the early reviews as they were on beta code at best......it really is a great machine now!

It looks like a collector with a crazy nice collection loaded up a truck and put all his games on location in one place to spoil location players!

Maybe he actually did do that!

#141 1 year ago

It is absolutely stupid how nice this collection is AND out for the public to enjoy.

Thanks man. One year anniversary coming up in Sept. Things have progressed quickly

Deadpool LE is next and then I’ll still be trying to hunt down a MM(R) by EOY. Getting really tricky on what to swap out as there is only room for 10!

That is a DP LE. LE?! Is this part of your on pins on location "absolutely stupid" business plan?

#145 1 year ago

I'd lose GB in favor of MMr, but that is just because of personal bias. For all I know it is a great earner...

Definitely will be stopping by again to play DPLE and/or MMr, hell, I'm dying to play that X-men and MB too, just missed them last time.

I gotta start making the drive down more often.

Just stopped by and played a few of them that I have never played before.
Monster Bash was on but would not take any money, they could not open it. Very nice looking game. Really wanted to play it.
Iron Maiden was off also.
Great line up, very clean games. Had fun.

Must have just missed you. I've got high scores on IM (51M) and XMEN (65M).

Just now finally solved Monster Bash bill acceptor. Frank drac and the crew are ready now. Some real finicky flukey stuff with bill acceptors I’ll tell you. And yes I’ve had about 20 of those locks and that was the only one I’ve had to throw out.

Maiden has been giving me fits so I am taking it home to fully diagnose and fix a couple things. It will be back.

Everything is now back up to my standards including AFMRLE which got some flipper tweaks today.

Thanks for playing!
