I installed a new CPR playfield in my high speed along with new plastics and other various parts. Just curious if this makes my game HUO again? I was thinking about routing it but don't want to spoil the designation if so.

#2 73 days ago

uuummmmm, no!

#3 73 days ago

The only thing that makes it home use only is if its home use ONLY.

#4 73 days ago

No, it does not.

#5 73 days ago

No, it would be a restored game.

To me, HUO means a game that was purchased factory NIB, was only the property of the original owner, and has only ever been played in that owner's personal residence(s.) If it ever left the original owner's personal residence du jour and was played in any public setting by people personally unknown to the original owner, it is no longer home use only to me.

I think if you move into the location where the machine is routed, then it's HUO.

#8 73 days ago

Your joking right?

Thanks

No just a new play field.

#10 73 days ago

Only if the playfield was delivered directly to your residence is it then deemed "HUO".

If you bought it at a show, it is "like new".

If you found it behind a dumpster, it is "lightly routed".

Is this the worst question ever from any Pinside veteran???

#12 73 days ago

I'm glad I could start my very own pinside controversy...

#13 73 days ago

Only thing that matters is if it’s LOO or not.

Only if it is documented and notarized.

Have the box?

If my wife gets a boob job is she HUO again?

No that's just a resto to players condition again

#19 73 days ago

Who cares if any game is huo or not? Just judge the game based on its condition.

I would take a routed, well-maintained game any day over a huo machine that never had its glass off.

#20 73 days ago

Just shoot me already

#21 73 days ago

Yes, number of players zero.

#22 73 days ago

The playfield had never had a public ball played on it. Only home balls. So I don't get why it isn't home use only? That's the only place these parts were used at. I'm not getting it. Could there be like a home use only original parts? Huoop designation?

#23 73 days ago

I think you’re on to something fattdirk
Bringing HUO machines on route would give a lot of players an opportunity to play a HUO machine that they normally wouldn’t.
I’m sure you could still sell it as HUO after a while as long as it cleans up nice with little to no wear.

He playfield might be HUO but the machine isn't HUO. HUO should be a machine bought by someone and basically never used anywhere but in a home. Everyone keeps "pushing" what HUO is but bottom line HUO should have original purchase receipt - goodie bag - etc and have never been used outside of a home (to me even taking a machine to a show takes HUO away).

#25 73 days ago

Are the boards huo, cab, mechanisms?

Quoted from Mitch:

Yeah ever since the playfield was changes. They've only been used in the home.

#27 73 days ago

What a retarded question. If you are the ONLY owner, yes. If it EVER belonged to anyone but you, no.

#28 73 days ago

When in doubt, just describe it as "undocumented huo."

Seems like a lot care as I see that designation alot and value placed on it.

I've got the receipt for the playfoeld and plastics and one from Marco.

#30 73 days ago

If it was HUO before the playfield swap, and HUO since the swap...Then yes.

It's an after-market reproduction playfield--not original.

Would it be a nice restored game? Sure. But it's not an original HUO game.

How about games that have been restored with overlays or hardtops? Those would still be restored games, not HUO.

There are collectors that specifically go after nice original games, and there are collectors who go after nice restored games. It would be a little deceptive to call a restored game HUO when it's actually not part of the history of the game.

Would you call a reproduction playfield a NOS playfield? Even if you installed an original NOS playfield, it would still be a restored game.

#32 73 days ago

He is clearly dragging you guys into this pointless debate. I really wish they would just straight up ban the term from here.

#33 73 days ago

No, it is not. You replaced the playfield, that's it. The cab was still on route somewhere.

#34 73 days ago

The crazy thing is even a HEP restored machine isn't HUO once he is done with it yet I don't know anyone who wouldn't prefer a HEP restored machine over a HUO pin. HUO is likely the MOST overused phrase on pinball forums!

And even if you restored the cabinet, it's still a restoration.

#36 73 days ago

I think it's hilarious how so many people treat the term HUO like it's an actual legal term. It's just a bullshit acronym some pinhead made up.

I'm donning my pocket protector and thick glasses with tape in the middle to participate in this thread.

#37 73 days ago

What if you put a brand new game on route but never plug it in. It's been routed but still has zero plays. It's never been in a home. Would that be NOB routed machine???

What if you live at the location?

You still need one of these stamps or it's not happening.

So a NOB HUO routed game probably does make sense in this situation.

#41 73 days ago

What if you live in the arcade the machine is in, is that home use only? as it is your home

No, upgraded from Pro model to LE model

There's a joke here about a serialized plaque but since you are talking about somebody's wife I decline the invitation to comment.

When you mention “HUO”’, what are you referring to? I have to ask these hypothetical questions...

Hospital use only?
Hotel use only?
Hostel use only?
Helicopter use only?
Holiday use only?

Looking for clarification so I can better assist you in your questions. Thank you for your time sir.
