Setting up a virtual pin on steam with fx3.
Don’t love the latency on the flipper controls, but cool nonetheless…I’ll see what I’ll see what I can do to speed things up.

Load em up and head em out…. Chicago bound…

So where’s the pinball action in downtown Chicago? Any tips…I’m relaxing around The Near Northside…

Would love to know all the good spots between Minneapolis and Chicago.

Hit Logan’s this trip. Very nice line up up, with some good video games…no wonder it’s award winning. These guys aren’t trying to win any awards but rather just doing what they love and shAring with others.

I’m sort of addicted to Radical. This one is a good routed game. I do have some affection for Tilt’s radical…

I’m in my safe spot. Was on the tip for a while, but kept things in check. Moving up tomorrow; open at 800….Pm with hauling needs up 90/94. May detour for the right situation. That opens no. Indiana and so. Michigan. And I guess the honey hole, des Moines. Omaha for a stiff deal you’re stretching the Brobra…

Good night pin heads and thank you for the
Support. By the way, I invite you to spontaneously intercept me, or rendezvous. I’m at the point where I come in hot, take my time and leave softly. I personally enjoy relating, interacting, enjoying, and learning from others…despite gaining my main charge through intraversion….

Good night brobras. Be safe and be well…
No cockroaches tonight

Man, I missed you by a few days. I'll be hitting up Logan this weekend. I would suggest checking out Marz brewing sometime. Decent list of machine, but also some of the best beers in the city.

#2064 27 days ago

Place looks decent but you need to come to Nashville. Game Terminal is off the charts. About 100 pins and 100 arcades, 2 bars and much more.

#2065 26 days ago

I recognize that arcade from some of Sterns website photos

Pulled a brobra today…. 680 miles in 8.5 hours…. Left MPLS at 10 am, Rockford, IL at 2:20 and back home before sundown.

Traded one pin for another in the parking lot of Costco. Had pins swapped from one vehicle to the other in ~10 min. Smooth operation!

You can really cruise on 94 but those smokies hide well in the center behind the trees!

Ehoh

Well done

This was the pic on the way down

The EHOH was purchased in MPLS by me to trade for a Wonka LE (game I wanted) to another pinsider south of Chicago. We meant up in Rockford to do the swap.

Nice going bro, I’m stoked for you!
Yeah, in the road race, I’m a consistent 5-10 over. Watch what the truckers are doing and tail the rippers by 1/4 mile…

#2071 21 days ago

Had to add an unreliable trader to the blacklist today. Two weeks ago he committed on a game and went dark. Today, he enlisted my moving services on a buddy’s game, and was a no show with an uncarefully crafted pile of crap as an excuse. I despise excuses and champion taking responsibility.

Thanks! I know I asked you about delivery but was able to work out a meeting place with the seller that made the trip doable.

Was a great weekend for a drive!

Kwoody51 if you drive yourself it’s always better. I’m getting better at finding fun things to do to break up the trips…I haul one up for you one day. We’re good

#2080 21 days ago

A buddy is about to list a wonka LE.
If interested, I’ll connect you. The game will need to be shipped as it’s outside of my range for the moment.

#2081 21 days ago

What’s the value on these?. Retail is 999 at stern, but of course it’s out of stock.

After tracking down a fuse F112 blow through a faulty coil, that in turn shorted the right flipper’s hold transistor (q11) on the fliptronics board, I’ve finally was inspired enough to make a few of these fuse circuit breakers. About $4 ea., local curbside pick at Grainger; ordered and picked up an hour later.
I suppose I’ll be stocking less fuses, lol.

I went through an annoying number of 10A fuses fixing my most recent EM. Got annoyed about it once I was done and finally looked into those breakers.
I'm lazy though and don't want to make my own, so amongst the most romantic gift ideas I've ever given my wife:
