Getting ready to start it. Should be able to tackle it in the new year. A friend gave me a populated playfield with a perfect ramp on it so I shouldn't need any new parts.

When it went into the garage a few months ago it was booting so it shouldn't be too much effort

Looks good, but abit...unpopulated? Funny enough i also had some Patrick Nagel plans for my HH, but on the playfield.

I'm thinking of adding a palm tree silhouette and moving the figures right and making them bigger. I've got a couple tweaks to make it more Nagel too

Im planning to add one of Nagel's girls (leaning towards the one from the Rio album) in the left lower corner, continuing the plastic down from the Hotshot part (where it abruply ends) and have her cover the outhole abit, and with a big maybe, add in some stylized palmtrees here and there, if i can find somewhere for them to fit.

Any suggestions before I approve this?Untitled-2-2 (resized).jpg

background too pinkish in my opinion

Try it against a bright light before you do any transliting.

yeah looking for best practices on this.

Adding a little color to the building should help tooHH Colored Building (resized).png

UGH Gimp 2 has a nasty export. The PSD doesn't look like that around the logo

I had to do some research before i sent my translite to the printershop, first version came out almost like a white light thanks to my HH having a LED tube installed LOL, had to darken the colors abit before i got it right.

I suspect your translite will light up a whole room as it is now, since its very bright with bright colors and lots of white.

#113 3 months ago

Can't believe I've missed this thread. Here's mine. I also have the other custom translite it came with, if anyone's interested.

Just noticed my sling shots are not scoring any points? Do they score points, if so how much?

#116 3 months ago
Quoted from Pinsforfun:

30 points, there are the two lower ones and another slingshot on the middle right. there is also a switch above the upper right flipper that scores 30

Just joined the club!! My Hollywood is en route. Not sure exactly how bad it’s going to be. “Powers up, but won’t start a game” could be a lot of things. I’m sure I’ll be asking the club vets for some help in the coming weeks/months.
Glad to be here! Can’t wait for it to arrive!

#119 3 months ago

Always fun hearing the multi bonus count down at the end of a good game

Just got my mold finished for replacement Hollywood heat ramps. If anyone is interested in having one made, I will be selling them in clear, pink and turquoise PET-G pending how the colors turn out. Pricing will be $55+shipping.

#121 19 days ago

Taking orders now and trying to get ideas on how many of each I am going to need to make. Some will be ready to ship this week! $50 for clear, $55 for colors, plus shipping.

I was all set for pink but now I'm thinking maybe clear.

#123 17 days ago

This needed to be done! Great job sir. I’ll take one. But how do I decide on a colour!?!

#124 15 days ago

Hey man Hollywood Heat was my first machine and these ramps are awesome and I can't thank you enough for making them. I got mine and it's awesome. Great work on the lighting on yours btw

#125 14 days ago

Here’s my HH before the new purple ramp arrives. It’s on its way and I can’t wait. I’ll post an after pic once I get it on!
Thanks again JodyG!

I am so glad there is a fan club for this game. I sold mine 4 years ago and miss it. Like everyone says its hard to find a good one. I'm a huge Vice fan and I put a color changing bulb in the loop bumper that looked great. I also added thin EL wire around the edge of ramp which gave it a neon light look. My favorite part of this game is the mini jump ramp to the upper playfield section. I dont think I have seen thos on any other game?

20eyes , Where did you get those pink/purple rubbers and post guards?

Titan does the rubbers pink/purple/light blue. All look great on this machine! I actually broke mine up with all three colors for different areas of the PF.

#133 8 days ago

Here is mine, I think it looks better, just need to fix the sound which stops playing after the attract mode is done, and during game play, weird

Rubbers from titan. I honestly thought it was stupid when I first saw them.. Colored rubbers... Eventually I couldn't resist putting blue on my Genesis then naturally pink for Hollywood Heat.
I put the posts with sleeves on all my 80B machines. The metal ramp protectors I basically copied the idea from cliffy for Genesis ramps and laser cut them at work. The exact same design ramp protector so far I have put on Genesis, Hollywood Heat, Gold Wings, Monte Carlo, 1 on Tx Sector.

I stopped in my favorite dive bar last week to play some Goldwings, when I was pleasantly surprised to see Hollywood Heat added to the lineup. I was even more surprised after looking it over that it was my old hh! It looked and played a 1000x better then I ever had it. Also had the hottie alternative translite which is a nice touch. Personally I love the captive ball with bumper and one of my favorite upper playfield designs on any game.

Kind of forgot about this game but now I'm hooked again and would love to meet out in front of the Carlyle Hotel one more time.

Looking good, JodyG. Thanks!
