    I don’t like that it’s not mine!

    #3 4 months ago

    For me its like musical instruments, someone knocks over my bass or whatever no big deal, someone bumps the pin or spills a little beer on the glass etc., OK. I get it, its expensive but when someone treats it like you shouldn't even touch it when that's what it was made for I have no time. Oh and about the deal they made on it, who cares. Oh and when ur playing a game and they hover telling u the best way to get points, who cares. Oh and I guess this is why I play mostly alone at home, both with pinball and with myself.

    A: No one cares if you spill beer on a fiddle.

    I see many games that have been otherwise thoroughly cleaned and shopped, except for the smaller wireforms, gates, and switch actuators. Yuck! That dirty metal detracts from the look of the game, and it only takes a couple minutes to polish each one.

    Oh yeah, and clown puke LED's.

    Overly anal owners.
    Don’t get me wrong, we take really good care of our machines at home, but they all get played. Anybody that comes over can play whatever they want and as many times as they want.

    ... After you’ve spent hours installing leds, rings and polishing it up but haven’t taken the time to clean the haze off of the display!

    #14 4 months ago

    Cool white or colored LED's in the GI.

    Quoted from o-din:

    If I've bought the other people's pinball I usually don't like its location -- down a steep flight of stairs, around a couple sharp bends, and usually thru a doorway too narrow for the upper cabinet to fit thru folded down (but the owner surely thinks if fit when he bought the pin!)

    i dont like that they're clean and everything works - i mean, wtf, is this a museum or what? Come over to my house for a while, you anal s.o.b.

    And why is odin up at 0500am?

    #17 4 months ago

    Games where you can’t see the ball. Games where you can’t barely see the lanes at the top because they are obscured by ramps or toys.

    Toys don’t make game play any better. Fancy graphics don’t make game play better.

    Level and pitch! You see this alot at shows and on location, but some personal collections as well. If you are going to bother bringing a beautiful, expensive machine out for people to play, take the five minutes to get it set up at least reasonably playable. I've played brand new games that were nearly flat and basically unplayable.

    #19 4 months ago

    I'm up at 5.a.m.old peoples time!! Got to take a dump and don't wanna go back to bed!! Just smoke a joint!

    #20 4 months ago

    What I dont like about your Pinball? Nothing that Im going to share!
    Everyone lights, Mods, and enjoys something different, and Ive seen plenty that make me cringe.

    After sharing my thoughts honestly, a few times in the past, Ive watched a crushed, deflated face
    on a few friends.

    They are being shared with Pride, and I will respect that.

    (Except if I visit O-din, and tell him he needs more LEDS!!!)

    That IS the question!!

    #22 4 months ago

    Playfield protectors or super bands.

    #23 4 months ago

    What I don't like about your pinball is that I'm located on the West coast and every game you are selling is east of the Mississippi (and usually almost in the Atlantic ocean). I understand fully that if I were to move, every one of these games would shift locations immediately to stay as far away as geographically possible. Good for my wallet though...

    #24 4 months ago

    Mods that do not fit the theme or art style. Ridiculous toppers that are more attention grabbing than the playfield. Tacky looking rule card/pricing card inserts. Colored LEDs on games not designed for them. I prefer games that maintain the original designers’ intents. And if you are going to augment that, have the good taste and judgement to continue in the same vein or else leave it be.

    #25 4 months ago

    When they don't have a dog sitting under it while you're playing.....

    #26 4 months ago

    Too many mods. Overkill

    #27 4 months ago

    Bad flipper alignment and weak flippers are usually my biggest gripes.

    #28 4 months ago

    Rebuild your flippers people.

    Led nightmare changeover without taste, as covered by rainbow puke club...it's a real thing, same with overuse of powder coating.. Just because you spent some of your hard earned cash...doesn't make it better.

    "selfie" modes

    #34 4 months ago

    OK, I agree with most everything in this thread so far.

    What some have told me about mine, is they would rather have them all take coins and none of this free play BS.

    I don't care for cookie cutter collections that feature all new games or only one brand. Usually don't want to go there and play.

    #35 4 months ago

    One poster on pinside said he does not allow anybody to nudge his games. What's up with that?

    Yeah, like I am going to want to go there and play.

    So you’re saying you don’t like nudging?

    If that's the way you want to read it?

    Also don't like when people make the tilt non functional or leave the bob out altogether. No sport in that.

    You mean does "NOT" allow. Key word left out there, LOL.

    That's what I get for being up until 5:00 AM. Was that pacific, central, or eastern time? Or perhaps daylight savings time?

    "Edited prior post for clarity"

    #40 4 months ago

    stuck balls on newer games drive me crazy!! If the ball gets stuck in the same place on multiple occasions per game, there is problem and it needs to be addressed.

    switches that don't register on older games. When your progress is impeded because a switch won't open, I want to scream!!

    Powder coated color coordinated coin doors.

    #42 4 months ago

    Back in the day it seemed like many games were left on location and that was that. I would play with one flipper not working just to get my fix. Then the next time they would not work at all.

    In the 90s one location put all brand new games and a few older ones, and they always worked perfect every time I went there.

    #43 4 months ago

    When everyone's pins are set up like this. Does no one own a level?

    Like anything else on the internet. Theres always someone that has an issue with something haha.

    #49 4 months ago

    I take very minor issues with others' pinballs (or lives for that matter)

    * if you're still double flipping, it should belong to me
    * if you don't play it, it should belong to me
    * if you won't slide save, it should belong to me
    * if it's a super LE, I just assume you have more money than you know what to do with, ergo, it should belong to me

    that's just the short list
