Quoted from oldskool1969:

Is the opposite of a TROLL called a LEACH?
Serious question as the word TROLL gets thrown around way too much IMO.
So ang suggestions on what you woul call followers/ lovers / investors of a certain person / product?

Interesting question and was wondering that the other day - I found the opposite was considered a Internet Pixie - sprinkle fairy dust to make everything positive

Quoted from wiredoug:

always with the attempts to attack people instead of discuss products..

we did try that but Mike grabbed his bat and ball when he didn't like peoples thoughts on the flipper buttons

#3402 6 months ago

maybe the easiest Wiredoug is ask pinside moderators is to close the official thread as Mike / Homepin is gone and pretty sure that was his 3rd time to take a break so he can't come back so no longer official.

#3403 6 months ago

Mike did this. Mike did that. You could just give it a rest that would work to. The news of the new ramp is a good positive step.

Endlessly “oh look a sample of 10 of the 20 constant detractors said it was junk so he’s a failure yay awesome” ...just ...isn’t

#3404 6 months ago
Quoted from wiredoug:

Delighted. Yes.its just totally inflammatory in this context. nothing productive can come of further talk about “people not products” in this topic.

Meh.
Fair to be a separate topic, but not a big enough deal for a callout on it.

Anyway, yes the metal ramp does appear to be visually a big improvement. Unfortunately game still needs more than a metal ramp upgrade but fair credit for trying to Start a new company. If mikes social skills weren’t so -no bs cut to the chase, rough, and unapologetic - this could at least be going slightly better.

If #2 is better received that would be great! However I tend to side with Ben Heck’s assertion about nailing the parts supply market rather than selling a #1 selling pin.. for now.

The parts market was their intent from the beginning in my opinion only. Preorder money would have assisted greatly to get that side of things rolling again only my thoughts. So iI think Homepin succeeded there

Your opinion is incorrect but certainly good thinking. It’s what I and others tried from day one to get him to do but the machine factory. Not stray parts, was always the goal for mike.

dont get me wrong.. homepin makes parts. But they arent for "selling parts.", ...they are for the games.

here is new target faces and rubbers..... if it was about the parts i would have 1000 of each rubber here by now.. alas .. im stuck buying the crappy ones form elsewhere.

Rubber is good but old tech.
Silicone is the future and once used, you never go back.

I hate silicone.
It doesn’t bounce right. Rubber is and will always be king.

#3411 6 months ago

Furry muff, I just think of consistent bounce, cleanliness and longevity. Far superior IMO.
Colours are just a bonus.

Quoted from oldskool1969:

Id rather use rubber, it doesn't stress the mechanics as much. So I'd rather replace a cheap rubber ring then an expensive mechanism.

Quoted from oldskool1969:

Not true...I tried silicone more than once, each time I could not get them off quick enough and replace them with good old rubber

I think so as well.

old school vs new school I guess? All good

#3416 6 months ago

I can't tell the difference between Titan and regular rubber. Superbands are another story. Way way way too bouncy.

#3417 6 months ago

When we say silicone, is this Superbands? Or is there some other silicone thing? I have found Superbands to be weirdly sticky and too bouncy compared to regular rubber.

#3418 6 months ago
Quoted from Russell:

Superbands are polyurethane. Titans/perfect plays are silicone.

Rubber is the only one that people should buy. Because it bounces like rubber.

#3419 6 months ago

if silicone was a bit better, but rubber was a bit cheaper. ...Any manufacturer with a clue would use rubber.

exaggerated for clarity it goes this like this.

- so we're building 10000 boxes.
- ok each box needs a widget set
- the good widgets cost an extra $1 a set.
- $1 seems like nothing but its 10000 all up.
- "will be get an extra 10k return if we use the good widgets?"
- ..no.., then use the cheap one. done.

silicone suits some enthusiasts but your normal mum and dad buyer doesnt care for it and wont pay extra for it

#3420 6 months ago

Based on vid's initial posts, I have always assume titans perform like rubber but wear better: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/titans-competition-silicone-rubber-vids-review

Has something changed?

#3421 6 months ago

if silicone was a bit better, but rubber was a bit cheaper. ...Any manufacturer with a clue would use rubber. /blockquote>

This is why we have ( for example ) Mercedes who use newer methods, technology and are at the forefront of their industry. Then there is FORD who rely on cheaper or more cost effective methods which are more appealing to a budget minded customer base.

I know what I prefer . Who has the clue? High end set the bench mark that the rest follow, eventually ABS, airbags , etc.etc.
Your method of thinking is just not true.

but this isn't aimed at the US, Europe or Australia - just Asia

#3429 6 months ago

“Disclaimer
This item is heavy and will incur an additional $50 delivery charge“

Seems cheaper than the delivery options we’ve been hinted at

#3430 6 months ago

CHRISCO......Wow tuff sell to Joe Public who probably has never seen the machine. Are the arcade cabs the same ones Aldi was selling a few weeks ago?

#3431 6 months ago

This isn't anything new. It was in the Chrisco catalogue last year.

#3432 6 months ago

So I have been in Singapore, Thailand and China over the past 3 weeks

Look forward to seeing more Pinball Machines in these Places Soon

Missed nothing here

#3433 6 months ago

Almost clocked it!

#3436 6 months ago

Don't know if it goes over 1 Billion, being electronic I would think so?
If you are a fan on the show, you may like it for nostalgia purposes, maybe.
I just think of all the nice EM's I could buy for the same price.
But hey, what would I know. I still think Gilligans's Island is " THE BEST GAME EVER "

#3437 6 months ago

alas, when looking for a game designer they chose the 'wrong way'.

Hey it's the same high score entry screen as AMH!

So they stole our boards AND code. Wankers.

So I’ve had the code for 4 years in AMH great, so after 5 years update yesterday from Highway was your machine can be shipped LCL but it’s not available, told have to wait for all the people who paid first!!! Funny how one of my league members got his pin already and only paid a year ago.

Just more delays and BS. I hope all other original pre orders have their pins now and I’m the only one waiting.

#3442 5 months ago

This is probably the most taboo game ever.
