Quoted from jwilson:
My my, feeling a bit salty are we? I seem to have hit a long-winded nerve. I was just looking forward to an epic restore of the whole game and was enjoying the cabinet redo, when you "just happened to have this complete replacement playfield" to drop in.
I love to see totally wrecked games come back to life and to see the various techniques people use to save what seems unsavable, but just having a bunch of replacement parts ready to go is sort of like on those cooking shows where they start preparing the food and then pull out the completed dish from under the counter "and we're done!"
Not everyone has a huge cache of ready to go replacement parts like that. Makes it a little less epic is all. Sorry.
Haters gonna hate.
Great thread and great work!!
