    Quoted from LateCenturyMods:

    Is $4100 cheap enough? Whew.

    That cliff hanger brought back some nostalgia.

    #1502 78 days ago

    Back in 1985 my friends and I went to the Downey Minature Golf and Puke to play specificly Thayers Quest, we had no clue how to but we had to try it.

    Such great source material:

    #1504 78 days ago

    Are internet buyers just buying off a name hoping it’s up and working Becuase the stream drops in the middle of bidding every 1 or 2 games

    #1505 78 days ago

    And they’re back (as the audio fades and breaks up haha)

    #1506 78 days ago

    Was weird they had no problems for a while and now its gone to shit again.

    #1507 78 days ago

    Laserdisc games just cause problems no matter what.

    Where are you watching it? I don't see it on their site or FB.

    #1509 78 days ago

    Says they’re taking a break to fix streaming issues

    #1510 78 days ago

    I talked to a friend that is there now, captains has kicked off all non bidders from the website, and no Facebook or Twitch, and the feed is still crashing.
    Yikes.

    #1511 78 days ago

    My guess is that the network signals are bad in that part of the building. YouTube videofeed is running but auction paused at the moment.

    #1515 78 days ago

    dang, I used to love Dragons Lair.. that would be a lot of fun to own

    #1516 78 days ago

    I never noticed this on their site till now.

    You would think that, until you own one for a while.
    Best attract mode for an arcade game, but the replay value is not there.

    Yeah they need to get off Wi-Fi and get onto a hardwired connection. Not sure that's possible though...

    #1519 78 days ago

    This is our Barrett Jackson. Even though I can’t afford them I still wanna watch.

    #1520 78 days ago
    Quoted from pinlink:

    At what point is it considered just flat out lying about these games? "Probably an easy fix" "super rare title here" "fantastic shape"
    People are getting taken..

    Meh, typical auction hype you hear at most junk auctions to build excitement.

    We can confirm it is not our network or internet speeds. For this event we brought in T1. This downtime is a result of the auction software. They are working on it now and the auction should resume shortly. Thank you for hanging in there while Captains gets this figured out.

    Jillian's Auction program she wrote for our TNT Amusements Best offer Sales seem to run well now...we have gradually worked out all the kinks...and they now stream pretty well with only a lag issue, but we never go off line anymore. She has sold it to someone else who is using it also. Todd

    Thank you! And remember kids, always feed Windows at least an hour before going streaming.

    #1524 78 days ago

    For YouTube feed just search Captains auction. Link should come up.

    #1525 78 days ago

    YouTube live stream
    TwistedGaming tv, is streaming, and commenting on the auction .
    Only 40 viewers so far.....

    Captains runs auctions every month that don't have these problems. It's obviously a location issue.

    Yikes.

    The rebroadcasts from those services are unlikely to be the problem.

    I would guess that the problem is probably the transmission of master feed on their end to the server(s)/service(s).

    Quoted from museumofpinball:

    For this event we brought in T1.

    Uh oh....I really hope it's not actually a T1. A T1 is only 1.54Mbps. You basically need 5Mbps minimum to stream in HD.

    #1528 78 days ago
    Quoted from Azmodeus:

    Saw that and said. Hmm. Never seen that before.

    The best part was trying to get the game to produce swear words.

    So what is the desirable standard called, these days ? T2, T3 . . . ?

    #1530 78 days ago

    Banning is a dusty hell hole crossroads town, there are multiple abandoned buildings on main street, and I counted four Burned out buildings also on main street Yesterday.

    Good riddance, now I never have to go to Banning EVER AGAIN.

    T-800 is the first generation Terminator.
    T-1000 = liquid metal.

    #1532 78 days ago

    Their 5 minute technical break is going on 30 minutes I assume?

    I see some auctioneer comments and dragons lair is at $1400 current bid. Technically they haven’t done that lot yet.

    Keep this simple:

    Thanks. Got it. I'll settle for any decent stream that is actually working.

    #1535 78 days ago
    Quoted from Heretic_9:

    My cable speeds are 1000 Mbps up and 30Mbps down for like $75 a month. T1 is like using carrier pigeons in comparison.

    #1536 77 days ago

    T2 is still the best IMO. We are talking Terminators still right?

    #1537 77 days ago
    Quoted from Heretic_9:

    So what is the desirable standard called, these days ? T2, T3 . . . ?

    T1 and T3 lines are outdated since they're not considered broadband any more. No such thing as T2 (except in pinball )

    Broadband is the catch-all term for most modern internet services.

    DSL, cable service, and fiber service are the main transmission services available to most people, and speed can vary significantly depending on the level of service that you're paying for. Satellite service is also available, but it tends to have high latency (so it's not preferable for things like online gaming).

    For cable and fiber, you're looking at anywhere between 15Mbps and 1Gbps in most cases.

    Fiber service is usually only available in populated areas and as long as you're not too far from a main road.

    #1538 77 days ago

    I'm on a business trip in Europe at the moment and have spent the last two nights in my hotel room following the auction.
    Last night I stayed up until 5am and then worked today.
    This lag shit is fucking killing me.

    #1539 77 days ago

    If your bored there is a live Texas horse auction on YouTube right now.
    Looks like it's at the TPF ballroom by the cover picture.

    2021 best of Texas premier horse auction.

    Didn't know that. Haven't really kept up with the tech standards or terminology. I just recall back when having a T1 line was pretty fancy and rather expensive. But that could have been back in ISDN days.

    Yeah, compared to dial-up at the time, it was totally awesome.

    #1542 77 days ago

    T1 was the shit in the early 2000s when I was playing FPSs.

    #1543 77 days ago
    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    I assume you are talking of fiber to the home, and just not transport delivery, as most of that is fiber now.

    #1544 77 days ago

    I must have like a dozen browser tabs open right now. Can we just forget about the FB feed at this point ?

    #1545 77 days ago
    Quoted from Methos:

    Correct--there's a difference between backbone fiber and "last mile" fiber that ends up at a home or business.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Yeah, I know.

    FTTH is more prevalent now, but it is a more expensive installation of course.

    #1547 77 days ago

    Are they really only on lot 155 dragons lair?

    #1548 77 days ago

    Looks like they are getting closer....

    #1549 77 days ago

    Jesus a Paint trick show Horse just sold for $25 grand !!
    I guess Rocky was cheap????

    The last time I was involved with fiber, there was a $1500 installation fee, but that can sometimes be waived depending on the length of the contract you sign.
