    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Yea, I'll give you a ring...I was actually going to see if either you or Jodester would want to be the tournament director for it anyway.

    I can help if you want Tiger.

    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    Points are up on IFPA

    Not super happy with point distribution. I did put in that it was a double elimination best 3 out of 5, which was a change from our original format.

    Plan to email IFPA tomorrow to see what I screwed up...

    #55 3 years ago
    Quoted from Noahs_Arcade:

    jodester, i think the biggest issue was newer tournament players. 4/9 of the players didn't count towards the calculation due to not having played in enough previous tournaments (i think 3 or 5). under the current ifpa rules, your best bet is having as many 4-player matches as possible since that doubles the meaningful games for each round.
    i didn't do the math, but the points look about right. the real solution is a quarterly bayou bash!

    That sound great to me!

    #56 3 years ago
    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    I'm thinking about doing a side tournament also for more points. Not sure what format we will use yet

    Is pingolf still allowed?

    Quoted from Arcade:

    And for those of you who have been to our gameroom here at the house, here are some early days shots of what our lineup used to look like before we even knew you could have tournaments or pinball parties.
    Notice the old paneling from the early days before the hurricane destroyed the room.

    I am looking at that lineup with Indy, WW, STTNG, Totan and I am floored. Awesome pics!

    Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

    I believe Jodster will be TD for your Aug 13th tournament, since I am TD for the Houma, LA tournament. I will be TD if necessary.
    You & Jodster to register your tournament events on IFPA website by July 12th or sooner.

    Yea, can do. We need to get the tourney registered next week on the IFPA website.

    Quoted from Nevus:

    Red River Replay Sept 24th added to Pinside events!

    Are we doing best 2 our of 3, double elimination?

    I need to put the event on the IFPA website.

    #391 3 years ago
    Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

    Could do best 3 out of 5 matches on winners side of the bracket, and best 2 of 3 matches on losers side of bracket. I like dbl elim format.

    Tournament can get really long as we saw at Josh's with the format we used. It really makes it rough on those driving 4 to 5 hours.

    Live Ghostbusters Premium pinball stream tonight. 9:00 P.M. CST
    http://www.twitch.tv/thepinballmafia
    Join in the fun and ask any questions you may have live.
    Game has build date of Sept 19th.
    No playfield date stamp.
    All inserts still perfect and drop targets working really well. Almost no rejections.
    So far we have added a Shaker motor, color captive balls, Stern Side art, speaker grill lights and cut out, and an airball protector plastic.

    Enjoyed the stream Leon!

    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    Couldn't make tonight's tournament but still had fun Red Devils won

    I missed my sons band halftime show for the tourney. At least I got to see him play pregame before I headed over to Jude's place.

    #697 3 years ago

    It was a great tourney Leon. Thanks to you guys for hosting. All the machines played well although pulling the side post on GoT and the flipper post in Spiderman were murder.

    Cool. Who is running our May LC tourney? Have we uploaded it to IFPA?

    I was unaware of a May tourney. May will be a lousy month for me to do much on the weekends. Seth has all the stuff for graduation and we head to Seattle at the end of May.

    Target Alpha joins the collection. Thanks to Aaron/ULM

    Temporary or permanent? You need to sell me one of those older EMs when you get tired of them.

    #1310 2 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    Tiger, decide on a date? (cough) May 27 or June 10 (cough)

    Tiger and my schedules have not synced this week. Hope to see him this evening after the Beaumont tourney. I will probably not be doing my tourney until July. I keep hoping my weekend schedule for home stuff/work will finally clear up.

    #1313 2 years ago

    Thanks to the Moncla Mafia for hosting a great tourney. Wish I could have stayed a bit later for the twitch stream.

    #1318 2 years ago
    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    Whoo Hooo!!!!! one i can make, We will be there

    We need to change that date if Josh will be there.

    Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    So, what are everyone's weekend pinball plans? I'm stuck in NOLA today, no pinball.

    I "get" to work this weekend Tiger. Nothing better than 24 hours of heaven at the hospital.

    On a side note, I finally put the new legs on Shadow and changed a couple of bad bulbs. Should be ready for its temporary new home soon.
    When it comes back home, I plan to put it up for sale. I need to shake up my collection again...

    #1361 2 years ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    Maybe. What is wrong with it.
    Preston loves F14

    You could sell 2001 to me to make room Leon!

    #1372 2 years ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    Thanks.
    We will work out pick up details soon.
    Perhaps a trip to Lake Charles could be arranged.
    If not we will find some time to drive down there.

    Just let me know so I can stock up my beer frig full of Lone Star.

    #1376 2 years ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    I love that our little club has an active flame on the main page so often. Lol

    Reminds me of the flames on my AC/DC topper...

    So Shadow will be going away for a bit but Ripley's will be there in it's place. Looking forward to having the group over for either competitive play or just an afternoon of pinball.

    #1379 2 years ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    We are going to need a chart just to keep track of where all of your games are. lol

    I can pull out a globe with pins. If I can do a swap with Mudflaps for Kiss, it will be another pin in the globe.

    #1404 2 years ago

    I wonder when Josh sells that car to make room for 12 more pins...

    #1422 2 years ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    I have not confirmed with Joshua yet that this will be ok, But it is the easiest way if he is coming and it works out for him.

    I hope you guys are cool keeping Tron a bit longer. I am having a blast with Spidy.

    #1431 2 years ago

    An FYI for the group, I am putting Game of Thrones up for sale. It has lighted speaker grills with nice graphics in front, lighted flipper buttons, and mirror side blades. Game has no issues with insert ghosting,decals , or cabinet. I am asking $4900 with pics to follow in for sale thread.

    #1441 2 years ago

    Playfield looks pretty nice on that machine. There have been discussion back and forth on the matter. I have used Novus 2 and it works well for a light cleaning.

    So, I got a repreive to play pinball today while in Seattle.Took an Uber to the Seattle Pinball Museum. Seth came along but regretted his decision after 4 hours.

    HUO Paragon somebody donated to museum. Cab was amazing. Got to play a lot of Dialed In, Hobbit, and Batman 66.

    Games were in better shape than most of the other arcades I have visited. Very nice service tech there that shared some repair stories with me.

    Quoted from Spg101:

    Sweet, Seattle is a crazy town. I covered Washington, Oregon and Alaska at one point. Would love to play some of those games.

    There are a bunch of bars that have machines in this area. It seems to be a great city for pinball.

    #1469 2 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Which was your favorite JJP game?

    Lets just say I have a new appreciation for the Hobbit. I liked Dialed In a bunch but the game felt different quality wise than Hobbit and WOZ. The displays are way better on TH and DI than on WOZ. (Maybe just from age?) I recommend Cliffys on all the outholes on any JJP game. All 3 showed much more wear than the Sterns sitting right next to them.

    #1472 2 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    The DI being a prototype model that's been traveling the country likely gives it a different feel than a fresh production game will have.
    Gosh! I'm jealous you got to go there! That's been on our short list for a long time.

    Well worth the price of admission.

    As much as it kills me, I am out for the Houma tourney.

    #1626 2 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    I've got a Target Alpha I've been meaning to list for just a tad more. It works 100% and is in good shape. I'm asking $650. Pics coming soon. It's about an 7.5/10.

    I seem to remember somebody offering to buy it from you the week you got it. Now who could that be...

    #1628 2 years ago
    Quoted from Noahs_Arcade:

    if you were already in line, it's yours. you should have kept the paragon another month!

    My Hobbit should be here Friday. I won't cut ahead if Chris doesn't remember.

    #1636 2 years ago
    Quoted from ulmpharmd:

    Jody, there is an unspoken gentleman's rule, never more than one new game at a time. I myself would never break this rule

    LOL! Maybe we should change that rule to never more than 3 games at a time. We gotta let everybody else have a shot at the games for sale. (Looking at you Monclas)

    #1648 2 years ago

    It really stinks that I work the weekend of Josh's tourney. My only consolation is that the Hobbit may be here by then.

    Looks like GoT will be gone on Saturday too. Now I need to decide what to do with my spare pinball cash. Do I buy an Aerosmith or a Houdini or the infamous Star Wars...hmmm...

    I will plan all my free time in the Shire once I get off work....

    #1663 2 years ago

    That should give other folks a chance without Preston being present.

    #1666 2 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    The bummer is I have no one to hitch hike a ride over with.

    Sorry that I work the weekend. It would have been a fun road trip.

    #1678 2 years ago

    Very jealous

    So, Jason 1st, Mike 2nd, James 3rd?

    #1694 2 years ago

    Its hard letting go of games. Hated to see GoT go right before the new season of the series.

    #1696 2 years ago

    Hobbit is shaping up nicely. I am still waiting to get the new warg bash toy from JJP. I must say that the game reminds me of all the maintenance nightmares from the past. (ST:TNG, TZ) I have tracked down 5 broken wires on coils and switches and adjusted the popups a bunch to get things playing well. The well worn playfield protector was cut off last night.

    I will be there Chris. I planned to head over there this week to pick up Target Alpha. Due to the weather, doubt that will happen.

    I will put my place in the running for the state tourney Mike. I plan to get a couple early 80's pins to level out all the dmds.

    Maybe I could get James to bring one of his EM's to give things an even better mix.

    #1967 1 year ago
    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    As deep as the trencher would go I think they told me it was 2 feet deep but it's more like 20 inches deep. Using 3/4" schedule 40 PVC same size that goes to the house. But this is much deeper in the ground then what is going to the house now. My plan is a 1 and done. Hope it turns out like that.
    Should finish up tomorrow so far 290' of PVC in the trench. If no leaks will start covering it up.

    Looks good James. Can't wait for an event over at your place.

    #1982 1 year ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    Had another one jump in the truck today.
    Photos to come.
    This one is a repeat but a great game.

    Hmmm...which Stern?

    #1990 1 year ago
    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    At least remote them I don't think I have any battery's on boards any more (now I'll have to double check). I need to start going the Nvam route.

    They are remote James. Darn things just started leaking. Duracell batteries with an expiration of 2025...

    #1994 1 year ago
    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    Good deal much rather deal with a remote pack then acid damage on a MPU. I have
    had the same thing happened with good battery's don't know why. Maybe we need to start going the Nvam route and be done with battery's.

    Would you still have the extra translight for Laserball? John from the Gulf Coast bought one with a backglass worse than that one. Any interest in getting rid of it?

    #2006 1 year ago

    Are you sure you don't want to sell that crummy Centigrade 37? I could take it off your hands...

    #2008 1 year ago

    Everybody planning to do a game swap with me for the Romp, give me a call this week.
    Currently:
    Ripleys back to Jason, Shadow back home
    Skateball project home ( don't forget to bring it Josh)
    GB to Mudflaps, KISS home
    Target Alpha to Mafia, ??? to home.

    Looks like a lot of fun...

    #2010 1 year ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    Jody.
    Thanks for returning Spider-Man last night and staying for the live Stream on AC/DC.
    It was a great night.

    It was awesome to see how things work behind the scenes. Thanks for having me!

    #2014 1 year ago
    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    jodester = Buying, selling (?) swapping and trading

    It sure is tiring! I got X-Men back from the Mafia last night. It was like getting a new pinball machine all over again. I had their Spiderman for about 6 months...

    #2022 1 year ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    Just got word today that our Attack From Mars LE has shipped!!!
    So we will be live streaming Guardians this Sunday
    And then AFMLE the following Sunday.
    Very excited about all of this.

    Awesome news Leon!

    Does Lake Charles have a Guardians as well?

    It's a secret Leon. ( No we don't)

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Doctor Who is back and getting ready for the tourney:

    Gear box issues with Dr. Who. Hopefully they can be fixed before Saturday. May be able to get another game there if needed.

    #2187 1 year ago
    Quoted from NicoVolta:

    Headin' back to Dallas right now but not before making a stop at jodester's place in a few. Target Alpha isn't shooting straight... yet.

    Target Alpha is playing great thanks to nicovolta!!!

    Hey TigerLaw. Is Game of Thrones color ready when the code drops on the 21st?
    The photos so far look stunning.
    Makes me wish we still had ours to try it on.

    So, spike games can be done now. Gives me hope for KISS, and GB. I may want to buy an extra ColorDMD for whichever one I end up keeping.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    February 6th weekly league event for Lake Charles will be speed location. 5:30pm start time. Four machines will be in play: high deal, AC/DC, Tron LE, Avengers LE. If a machine goes down XMen LE is substitute game.

    Very interdasting...

    Is LOTR out of service Tiger?

    Got our shaker motor installed in Aerosmith yesterday.
    Has to be one of the most lightly used shaker ever. Very subtle.
    However I hear from people who have tested the new code that it will take the game to new levels of great gameplay.
    Can’t wait till they release it.

    I have not purchased one yet. I was hoping you would tell me it wowed you...

    Making final adjustments to tourney games. Looks like a rainy Saturday..

    #2276 1 year ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    Complete and total Armageddon here in North LA.
    Schools closed
    Air Force closed (Yes the United States Air Force is closed).
    Interstate 20 is closed.
    According to Henry “It’s enough snow to make a pretty good footprint”. My wife was back and forth to the hospital several times in the night and says “The roads are fine, uggghhh!”
    It’s a great day for Pinball!

    Well at least snow won't be on the menu for Saturday. We will probably get some sleet later today.

    Quoted from epichoff:

    I wanted to give thanks to all of you guys that participated in the tourney Saturday. Special thanks to Mike V for a smooth running tourney and Josh D for an awesome side tourney trophy.

    With the exception of overheated flippers on Hobbit, all the games seemed to hold up well.

    #2332 1 year ago

    A fair afternoon of fixing issues with a few games. Got the broken rubber fixed on Tron. (Time for a total teardown and shop job on that one.) Adjusted the TNT drops on ACDC pro and added another rubber behind the targets to keep ball from being stuck. Also, amazing how a trough switch that was sticking was the cause of my game loading 2 balls in the trough.

    All in all a good day of fixing stuff.

    I have asked Jody for first chance at Skateball. I had a chance to buy it from Josh but timing just wasn't good so glad Jody picked it up and I still maybe able to buy it.

    It's yours when you are ready James. Going to need the room to shop a couple of Tiger's games.

    There seem to be a ton of trades going on in the area. I have sold/traded a couple games with the guys in in Shreveport recently. Who knows if I will snag one of Tiger's games to keep it in the community...

    Quoted from Mudflaps:

    I’ll be ready to trade SW after dumping a ton of money into it that I can’t get back, right before the massive code update.

    Isn't that the way the pinball community works? Spend 5k on a game, pump $1000 in addons in it, then sell the game for $4800. It seems to work for me...

    I have a list of pinball to-do’s: wait for TS sound board, re-paint & re-stencil Drop A Card, finish Police Force, etc. How can I do all this while raising a family *and* squeezing in 6 hours of TV a day?

    So, the sound board was bad on Shadow?

    #2700 1 year ago
    Quoted from PavBall:

    I am making Tiger take a week off playing pinball. We possibly could locate a machine or two but they are not common in this country. Arcades are not common here except on a couple islands and those are all redemption based. I think he has a deep clandestine plan to try and sneak off with Phillip and Ferdinand who have both just arrived and scrounge around for a pin somewhere but he is on his own there and I am on to him anyway.
    I know Tiger is really looking forward to the league starting up again in a couple weeks. Catacomb ended up being the game that came out to fit speed ‘s WOZ into the league lineup. We ordered the ball gate stopper for the bagatelle from cottonm4 and jodester has rebuilt the pop bumpers for more action and easier ball locks. Catacomb will be better than ever upon its eventual league return in the future.

    I also fixed that spinner that was causing us issues. Game is playing great and is just in need of the bagatelle gate.

    #2711 1 year ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Yes, the summer vacation trip photos are quickly becoming a tradition for this club. pavball and I will post some from Greece for sure.
    By the way, Iron Madien premium arrived in Lake Charles yesterday. Total Nuclear Annhilation is now fully paid for and will be there before June 23rd.

    We better unbox IMDN as soon as you get back. Seems like there are lots of adjustments with the Premium. (And possibly issues)

    The bagatelle gates came in today. Should make Catacomb even better...

    I think we have tigerlaw ‘s IMDN too steep. I have it setup at 7.5 degrees and that thing is playing like a beast.

    It is an awesome looking game. Hope some of you can join us next weekend for his tourney...

    Quoted from Arcade:

    How is the auto plunger doing with getting the ball around the orbit?
    I see a lot of people having issues with it.
