Hi I’m behind the firepowerpinball.com site. The original idea was to create a slick experience that gave access to Firepower vectored images and cool graphics. The graphic designer is Phil Butcher and the pinball tech support and circuit diagrams was from me (alienpoker). We have provided this to the pinball community without asking for anything in return. We have continued to pay for the web hosting and domain charges which have continued to increase over the years.
I also created firepower.2ya.com to be a more informal repair site and linked to cover some of the games in my collection. I then moved over to providing some of the content on PinWiki as the Marvin3m / Clay information started to dissapear.
The main reason firepowerpinball.com is being updated is that the site was originally written in Adobe Flash and Adobe Creative Suite, which are not supported on iPad or iPhones and is on the way out. I started what was supposed to be a fairly quick upgrade to move content to WordPress or some other web platform (html5) , which would allow access from any platform. Sadly I was let down by a web developer which I had I paid and this is still not ready to roll out. Frustrating.
I’m likely to put the fppb.com site back up as it once was, if there is still a demand for the diagrams and info. Ideally in a more accessible format once that is completed. For now I changed it so there is a site index of files.
BTW- Much of it is now available on PinWiki or copies are hosted elsewhere. I also provide www.firepower.2ya.com with some Firepower and Williams System6 board and repair info which someone kindly mentioned. Also there is www.blackknightpinball.com for Black Knight and Williams System7. As I have become more active in pinball again in 2018, I am hopeful these sites will continue to be updated and improved as time permits. Cheers.
Happy Flipping! Steve Ritche Rules!
