Quoted from Chosen_S:

Here's a video of the build and another of some gameplay

Nice videos.

Have to say.....I was disappointed not to see the start of multiball after you showing in the first video the Daft Punk song start. Another video around the corner?

Quoted from Nighthawk128:

Home clear jobs are terrible, be carefull take your time but if it's stripped down send it to HSApinball, those folks do a stellar job

Have to disagree. Some home jobs are just as good as the "professionals". And others are just 8th grade art projects.

I was disappointed too, this was the third recording, I'll give it another go soon, about. 1 in 10 games I'll start multi ball. It's pretty cool... Stay tuned

Been a long time coming for this one... I’ve been having lots of issues keeping this machine running consistently, BlueBlood came to the rescue by creating these connector boards and hooking me up with a set... the sorry ribbon cable connector that is used with the mpu200 causes serious connection instability, now there is a home made solution... IDE ribbon cable connector .

I had previously installed machine sockets, so they were a pain to remove, but after an evening with the iron, gamatron is playing great again!

Nice! Yeah, my Gamatron had the same issue: Don't touch the cable or it would crash!

I actually had Gamatron and F2K side-by-side for a while. It was really amazing how the narrow playfield was still quite fun. Honestly, the ball-walker takes up a lot of the real-estate on the F2K without much benefit, so it was a great idea to make it a regular playfield.

My Gamatron is getting a full restoration. I’ll share pics when it’s done.

Hey guys! There’s a club!

Love to see y’all’s builds over there too

I have both as well, gamatron is my favorite of the 2... I did a major music mod on my gamatron, I really need to post a good video of it... I’ve been thinking of adding speech to gamatron as well, it might be overkill though
