    First off Id like to say hello again to all who knew me before, and hello to all the new ones. I left pinball last year at a drop of a dime. This was supposed to be my "out" and it was turning into complete headaches and problems. I sold all of my machines and tried to stay away. That worked for about 3 months, and I kept checking things here and there. Finally threw in the towel and said okay, this time its for a hobby!! So Im back into it again. Most of you might remember my son rebuilding his fireball machine. Now me and him are building a virtual pin which I will post pics onto a thread soon.
    So after all this I realized that this hobby is a sickness that you can subside for a while but it will always be in your blood.

    My last problem, Im looking into a completely bare game room.... Damn...

    Welcome back...
    Hard to tell a bird not to fly, a cheetah not to run or a pinhead not to play pinball
    All things in moderation... keep it fun

    Virtual pins can be a cool project. Are you gonna do it up with stuff like tilt sensors, coils for tactile feedback, etc.?

    Im planning to add the sensors, shaker, and amp. Never though of adding coils though, for the knocker ect?

    He ripped you off?

    That's one way to put it. I had a friend local to him pick it up for me (my error), but he was dishonest with my friend and told him that he had disclosed all of the issues with me. He had not. This thing was a wreck when I got it... While the CC is even, it was obviously done pretty poorly over a low res overlay. He repopulated the PF too soon, and didn't even cover any of the openings.. white residue all over everything... It was supposed to include a 'rough' shuttle toy, but he decided to keep it.

    Just some of the issues..
