Thanks for taking the time to do this video. I did an Angry Birds pin a few months ago and it's funny how similar our setups were. After watching your vids I'm already second-guessing a couple of things I did. Next time around, I think it will go a lot smoother.

I like your idea of having a mixer as opposed to 2 sets of speakers. I laughed when I saw some of the fabricating and gerrymandering you had to do to make the switches work. Yeah, been there...done that. I had a hard time figuring out how to get triggers on the sling shots ( not the nice linear slings but the nasty older Bally slings. I didn't have to worry about drop targets like you did, but I will next time.

Fantastic job, man. It's a shiteload of work.

Quoted from Betelgeuse:

Thanks schmoo! I checked out your Angry Birds, very cool! What's the next project you are working on?

Believe it or not, I think I'm going to try a Smokey and the Bandit retheme, using a Bally Hottdoggin. I try to use really pooched or unappreciated machines and Hotdoggin is definitely unappreciated. I saw Smokey/Bandit about a dozen times when it first came out, so this retheme is for me. I don't expect many other people to think it's cool ~ certainly no one under 40.

It was either that or Dukes of Hazzard.
