Lighting in the head works now. Doesn't look too bad for a 60s game that just came off route 22 days ago

Rollover/gobble hole scoring issue resolved, right flipper back to 100%, all lamps shinning bright, plate glass out, playing like new, thanks JT Amusements. This sunshine is a real beauty. She's tough though, even with a score over 4mil haven't been able to get a rating higher than good. Can't Imagine what a killer game genius rating would take.

Started the day thinking I was getting a late 40s Gottlieb but ended up with another early 70s Williams

They were more than I wanted to spend and needed more TLC than I thought.

25 day no post bump to the top.

I agree too long not to see pics of cool old stuff. Here's some new pics of my old stuff.

I love Sunshine. Its the most challenging game in my line up.

You have the normal rollovers to unlight, which takes some serious accuracy with the tiny flippers and their wide stance, but also have to avoid the 3 gobble holes. She has a rating system that's shared by only a few other games. She sometimes throws you a bone with the unique spinning backglass disk to randomly get another number on the top rollovers and the gobble holes. There's a rare "star" replay feature that I've only gotten a couple times. Her artwork is gorgeous.

I've only lit all 14 numbers twice. I've only gotten the 2nd highest rating once, never the 1st or 3rd. I've only achieved replays for score twice. But still have the desire to play yet another game.

She's usually the first to get played when powering up the arcade with the hopes of maybe today is when I get over 7mil and the genius rating. Or perhaps this will be the game that I complete all 14 numbers and get a crapload of replays from the "all white numbers special" and the "all red numbers special" alternating with playfield switches. Or this has got to be the game when I max out the lamp scoring and top it off with the star special.

The hole game tilt is something that takes some getting used too. All my other games only can the current ball not the entire game for [email protected]$k sake! Good incentive to NOT tilt.

I think another reason I think it is so great is the appreciation I have for the designer Wayne. Today's machines have entire teams...dozens of people working on them to bring them to the public. Sunshine was one of over 200 games he designed and one of the 167 that went to production. Not only designed but white boarded, wired, tested, tweaked, all by him then sent to the artist. All with 1950s electronics. He came up with the title while listening to "you are my sunshine my only sunshine" playing on the radio as he worked.

I don't think Sunshine will ever leave the collection.

Quoted from Gotemwill:

Just picked up this Super-Flite project. It’s in decent original condition. Should clean up nice! I can already tell it’ll be a fast game. Thought it might be a “buy and try” game but it might be sticking around longer than originally thought.

Wow that looks like its in great shape. If it plays like it looks it should definitely be fast. I'll never sell mine.

Quoted from Gotemwill:

Haven’t done a thing to it yet other than windex the glass! Was sitting in someone’s garage for what appears to be a long time. Needs a deep clean and some worn parts replaced. Looking forward to playing it when it’s 100%.

I couldn't zoom in enough on your pic to tell, does your machine have a hole between the 1 and 0 on the outlane?
