As promised, gameplay video of Williams #Magic-Town
Nice job on that Magic Town, gdonovan. I just spent the last two hours getting caught up on this thread from over a year ago. Lots of great games in here & excellent restoration work. Makes me impatient to show my games... but pinball museum and house improvements must come first. Still cranking away like a madman.
Norm Clark’s 2” middle-pop layout geometry is TUFF. Lots of air around the pop bumper. While some cool rebounds occasionally happen, I do wonder if using flippers that were a smidge longer (if they existed... maybe 1/8” more?) would improve the pop/flipper interaction without breaking the gameplay? Or hot-rodding the middle pop coil a bit for stronger rebounds?
His 3” middle-pop games have the best interplay between the flippers and the pop bumper... almost as if it were a third flipper. I think that’s the key. A bit more fun than the drainy 2” version which is noticeably less interactive.
Liking it so far? I’ve got Mark’s LED spinning fountain color wheel on display at the museum. It’s gorgeous. I sure hope he mass-produces it.
