The gallery of finished games is up again.
Things that typically get it taken down(publicly)are the following.
Stealing the pics or posting them without proper credit.
Copying the styles,mods,techniques etc and presenting them as your own or without acknowledgement.
Using links to other peoples HEP games on there to sell ones own HEP game(typically older and much more traveled/misrepresenting)

I want to keep as much of the gallery public as I can but what it represents for me is quite personal so hopefully people will not only respect the gallery itself but all the various efforts it took to create the games and ideas presented there as well as the business that is built around it.

Very nice work! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Chris! I'm really glad you decided to put the pictures back up. As I mentioned in an earlier thread, they are a resource that many in the pinball community greatly benefit from. I just hope people can be more respectful in the future and not abuse the privilege.

Thanks Chris. I love looking at your portfolio of work. Remember, when people copy stuff it's the highest form of flattery. Plus, I think showing off your craftsmanship is good for generating future HEP business.

Thanks in advance for whatever cool idea(s) I pickup while surfing your website.

Yes, thanks for sharing.. probably my fault I spent most of AM yesterday drooling over your
work.. those black mirrors/ball guides were wicked looking and black nickel sidebars on AFM!

That's very cool of you Chris.
As someone who gets a lot of pleasure from restoring my own pins, having this as a resource of "how to do it right" is invaluable.
Thanks!

These galleries are amazing!

I'm a little confused by one of Chris' statements in his original post. Could someone (or Chris) give an example of "Copying the styles,mods,techniques etc and presenting them as your own or without acknowledgement."

If someone restores a game, what would be a "style" or "technique" that we wouldn't be able to use without acknowledgement?

I think it's fair to say that Chris has come up with some unique wasy of doing things, or that he has customized machines in ways that others have not. Black AFM is a great recent example.
I can see how the man would get his back up from others attempting to create similar modified restorations without giving any credit... especially if they're doing it for profit.

Excellent news, thanks Chris!

There are restorers out there that copy his hard work or outright steal but those that know know Chris is on another level. I have seen so called "restorations" go to Chris for a restoration after the restoration... eye opener. I am proud to have a few in my collection.

The only secret of his I want to know is how to get the inside of the cabs that clean. Hell.

Correct, most restored games are far from restored ! When I see other so called restorations,I lose my mind seeing what others are proud of. There are only a few that can emulate a HEP restore !

I'm pretty sure Chris stole all my ideas and didn't give me credit.
