Sorry I see these posts everywhere and never understand. Im slow. Are you selling these or just scanning them?? Is this licensed work or just showing you can do it. Do you have a website?

#2253 45 days ago

Yes, I have a website about pinball and arcade hobbies for fans. You can see it with my nick in screencaptures. I wrote/write tutorials, videotutoriales, manufacturings, etc. All about these hobbies!

https://zonaarcade.forumcommunity.net

I do it for challenge, for entertaiment, for preservation and for helping some people. I explained it here:

So then I guess I do understand. From what you provided you do not offer these for sale. You do not make or share them with others. So why do you promote these on each game thread then? To show you can scan others art work? Seems like someone Else was the artist no?

Thanks for asking!

Sharing my restoration results, customizations and more gimme the possibility to get feedback, opinions, improvement suggestions and new challenges.

I just finished updating my v2.0 Snack Bar to a v2.5 Snack Bar with Swink's latest mod. After trying out Red, Green, Ice Blue, and Purple Comet LED strips I settled on purple. As with all of Jady's mods this one is well made and a snap to install. I'm really happy with the update. I just wanted to say a big thank you to Jady for continuing to provide awesome enhancements to an awesome game!

thanks heaps for sharing your feedback n4297m and glad you like the mod enhancement, your game looks sweet and shiny - nice work.

amber is another suitable colour but light purple is my other preferred colour, enjoy

to help the guys contemplating getting a Snack Bar signage upgrade kit

Some people have contacted me asking what version Snackbar mod they have, as they may have bought the Snackbar mod that has been sold on from someone that removed the mod or upgraded their mod or they bought the game with it in it. The easiest way to tell the difference between v1 or v2 is count the number of screws on the top of the mod.
v1 - has 5 screws
v2 - has 2 screws

#2260 43 days ago

If anyone is looking to sell a Creech within a few hours drive of southwest Michigan shoot me a message. Prefer to pick up in person but may consider shipping.

#2270 27 days ago

wow! I love the art style for the 2nd card

a couple of comments though. I think that it would look better without the universal monsters logo (which is already on the apron) and the 'number 1' triangle. you've already got a "premiere issue" explosion, so both the 'number 1' and monsters logos are just a bit redundant (especially with it being right next to each other

maybe slide the creature over a bit more to the left and slide the bally logo up to take the place of the universal monsters logo?

if you could do something in a similar art style for the left side card with the rules/instructions, I would definitely like to purchase a set of these from you

#2271 27 days ago

Hi j_m_!

Thanks for your feedback! I inspired in a real flyer from 60´s, both elements "Premiere Issue" and "Number 1" was in original. In fact I took them without modification, but size.

About logos, I like to add original firms from companys involved in a concrete pinball. It is part of my card style for "Crew, Free Play, Price, Promotional and Score" cards. Except Rules/instruction cards, I add them in rest of the card all time. In fact, I document myself with original logos, year and more details to be precise with them.

I will try with a new rules card in this style ahead.

I have a unreleased "Crew" card with a "green flyer papper". I thought it was funny to simulate it playing with creature colour.

Thanks for your positive feedback, you have my positive vote!

Best regards!

#2272 27 days ago

The last couple sessions I played Creature, I found it to be pretty dang hard. My game is setup factory, with a not very steep angle to it. I even have extra balls on, which many of my games do not. It kicks my butt every time, I'm always fighting and fearing drains moreso than other games. I see others post 800 million or so on other machines but mine 300 is a very good score. I'm an experienced player with great ball control(IMO), I guess perhaps shot misses are punished much more with the wide outlanes and flipper gap?

Either way, still love the game after 3 years of ownership.

Fail of the day: 2 balls on the flipper, super jackpot lit. Drain both within .1 seconds of each other and of course, no super jackpot.

looking good i would try to minimize the small detail text, usually once printed text of that size is hard to read and somewhat useless?

Only if you have a leak in your roof above the game.

#2283 4 days ago

Hilarious answers! No I'm not actually doing that with mine, I have the "Admit One" Ticket that was a custom topper for Funhouse I believe but I think the ticket idea works for the drive in too

gorgar1 It is a B/W coin door as they had various door suppliers and models - this one was used for certain countries. Here are the part numbers and which countries they went to specifically for Creech

B/W# 09-45000-1 Belgium
B/W# 09-45000-2 England
B/W# 09-45000-3 France

Looking at purchasing a Creature. Can someone explain the hologram to me, did this come with the machine originally and they just wear out or are they a mod that someone adds to it?

Quoted from manadams:

One of the games unique stock features was a 3D hologram of the creature the activates during mode. Unfortunately the hologram in time would slowly fade to blue (Creech not cool in blue...) and eventually black as the image dies. A few have made a mod that basically replicates the basic effect using a monitor to replace the old hologram image piece. While not 3D like the original it does add additional animation effects which adds value though this mod seems very hard to find. Planetary Pinball still sells repro original holograms though expensive and I can’t vouch for their longevity. Hope this answers your questions.
