Quoted from Baiter:

Says everyone who has ever commented to any preliminary game video on Pinside.

Not really, usually initial play videos are met with universal praise whether it is deserved or not. After all the crap that has transpired it would be really great to say the game was worth the wait. It would be akin to when BBB was remade as for awhile it looked like everyone was hosed on that as well. Instead, what they have is a mess which is just salt in the wounds.

I just want to know Magic Girl owners that have your game, Can you make a ramp shot?

Why would they tell? That knowledge could cost them some money.

Even the prototype, with the messed up overlay, was makeable. I saw several folks make it at NW show.

That is least of worries imo

I was under the impression that they had to take the glass off to make it using their hands.

#56 1 year ago

Nope the glass off was because the ball would get stuck in a scoop

57 posts and not a single MG owner has posted here. All speculation by the armchair quarterback crowd. Got to love it. And unless Special K has his $20K MG unboxed and playing, anything he says in his crapcasts is pure bullshit.

#58 1 year ago

Who is the one that will unbox this, set this up, and get it playing first??

Shocker...

"All speculation by the armchair quarterback crowd."

Shocker again...

"Got to love it."

Not really...

Oh so a crapcast is composed of shit, that was funny hahaha... .. . . .

Where's the code?

Lyman is on it....

Quoted from TaylorVA:

WCS bracket on the left ramp entrance.

Why is that part there? Is it acting as a ramp support because it fits? Unused bolt holes does look like a wrong part or incomplete

He did steal so many things from CV, TOTAN and TOM that he needed a few more WCS parts to round it out. I would like to see if that assembly over the shooter lane is doing a WCS also.

On a positive note, it sure looks mighty purty!

I have no idea what the meaning of this post is...probably too subtle for my feeble mind

#82 1 year ago

Only 20 some machines were made and one or two days ago maybe half of those games were picked up and are bieng transported.

I wouldn't expect video and a game play description for a long while.

I'm thinking the K man's podcasts might be all your gonna get.

#84 1 year ago

Who cares about bad gameplay?

MG is not a game you buy to play.

This is a game for collectors (mostly)

Lol. He quoted a lyric from the Simon and Garfunkel song Kodachrome but he got it wrong. I was just being goofy because I was bored.

"Kodachrooom, I gotta Niiiikon camera, Id love to take a photograph, momma don't taaaake my kodachrome away."

As a finishing touch, god created the Dutch!

#87 1 year ago
Quoted from SilverBallz:

Was it because of the criticism? I mean people have been bashing JPop for 3 ,4 ,5? years now. Some of that's gotta be expected even if he does start shipping machines.

If you're talking about Vermeer, I agree. That's actually something I'm jealous of with the guy that bailed out; he lives in Delft. God, I'd love to see that city sometime...

Well your good buddy is a big loser in this game. You want to keep riding his coat tails for some reason. So yes, I win, he loses and you want to keep sticking with the guy who gets banned from every group he wants to be a part of. Keep making friends.

FYI, I have kind of ignored you because mutual acquaintances have told me you are not that bad of a guy and I should make friends. But you keep coming back to prove them wrong.

Tirade?

More like "have" a problem. Not the same as your hero, but both should seek help.

Carry on, just elsewhere please.

Actually, I was the one who quoted it and the line is "everything looks WORSE in black and white" Just sing the lyric and you'll see that better has the wrong cadence.

Vermeer, the Company, is in Pella, Iowa.

Of course this was about the Supreme Court rulings on Pornography at the time......

Go to YouTube and listen to he song from the concert in Central Park video. I swear is says better not worse.

Quoted from zr11990:

From el Wiki:

The lyrics to this song on There Goes Rhymin' Simon differed in wording from those on the The Concert in Central Park (1982) and Paul Simon's Concert in the Park, August 15, 1991 albums. The former (the album) said, "...everything looks worse in black and white," but the latter (the concerts) said, "...everything looks better in black and white." While it might be easy to read into the change in lyrics, Simon said, "I can't remember which way I originally wrote it -- 'better' or 'worse' -- but I always change it....'Kodachrome' was a song that was originally called 'Goin' Home.'"

It would be good to explore some solutions to identified MG problems here. I've got two initial ones:

1) Lack of a groove in the ball launch lane. This means the ball hits the sides of the lane and loses energy, leading to many failed plunges. As a quick fix, would it be possible to produce some mylar with a vertical track on it (to keep the ball in the right direction) that could be stuck onto the PF?

2) Ball trapped in launch lane under metal strip (next to skillshot). Literally a piece of flexible metal sheet has been bent, and ball gets trapped in either direction- impossible to fix this just by adjusting the bend in the metal, as ball will get stuck in one direction or the other. What is needed is a light-weight one-way gate to replace the piece of metal- see photos.

Can anyone help in achieving a practical solution to these problems? Many more to follow later, I'm sure! But these initial two are important as they make MG unplayable with the PF glass on, despite being hopefully quite easy to fix.
