Episode 442 - Multi-Races Playable, Robo-Frenzy Fixes, 1942 Keeney Towers

Multi-Races works! I finished the wiring after last episode, fired it up, and can play games on it. There are no graphics currently, but still a major victory.

Robo-Frenzy has also had a few victories over the past weekend - the score motor turns, score reels and reset function properly, and the short was found.

Episode 445 - Service Calls, Coin-Op Carnival Shipping, Universal 5-Star, 1952 Gottlieb Coronation
Apr 11, 2019
I've been digging myself out of my backlog on local service calls since my return from Texas. I talk about one interesting EM call I had recently.

Coin-Op Carnival's reception has been fantastic! Come see Ryan at the second tour stop for the book at the MSU Abram's Planetarium, Sunday, April 14th at 6PM. This is a free event! Following Ryan's presentation (a 360 degree video of Wayne Neyens demonstrating his "Spirit of '76" and his office with pinball memorabilia), there will be a book signing and an array of great games designed by Wayne Neyens or featured in Coin-Op Carnival #1. More information available at www.coinopcarnival.com/appearances.

Sophie has been learning how to repair EMs by working on a Universal "5-Star", which is a very unique game. She's looking forward to playing it soon.

Today's featured game is Gottlieb's "Coronation" from 1952. https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=568&picno=23138

This is one of the iconic games of the woodrail era, notable for its fantastic art package as well as its gameplay.

The plastics on this game have been recreated by Ryan Claytor and are for sale at the Pinball Resource: http://www.pbresource.com/plastic/pl070.jpg

Things have been very hectic over the past two weeks with zero pinball-related progress or changes. No service calls and no work on Robo-Frenzy or Multi-Races. Rather than talk about one game and nothing else, I figured I'd wait until I had something to say. Next release ASAP (likely next week).

Episode 450 - Interview with Gerry Stellenberg 6-26-19

Gerry Stellenberg of Multimorphic (www.multimorphic.com) joins me to discuss his history with control systems, development of the revolutionary products the P-ROC, P3-ROC, and the P3, and custom pinball development on the P3.

I use and enjoy many of the products produced by his company, and his boardset allowed me to complete the Multi-Bingo in a very short amount of time. I have used his boards in every project since and never hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a control system.

The P3 is a modular pinball machine which allows for custom development. It has many unique features, from the wall and scoop assembly that can change the geometry of any game on the platform instantly, to an LCD screen that can serve as score display and collection of virtual targets - the ball can roll over items on the screen and interact - it's truly amazing.

The 2010 Expo seminar that Gerry references -

and Pinball News has a writeup here:

A (very) early video of the ball tracking used on the P3:

We even sneak in some bingo talk at the end!

Episode 456 - York Show Giveaway, Timer Unit Issues, King of Diamonds Troubleshooting

The York show is coming - October 11th and 12th, 2019!

This year, I will be giving away custom tokens for those that can win on Multi-Races.

I also note a common issue with new bingo owners/mechanics - the timer unit needs to be in proper working order or the game will not function properly.

Lastly, I took a look at a King of Diamonds that had some replay issues. I found the problem for most of the replays, but the randomized replays based on the 0-9 unit position I could not resolve before I had to head home. Hopefully the game will be at York for all to enjoy!

Episode 457 - Interview with Edward Trapunski 09-30-19

Tonight I am joined by Edward Trapunski, author of "Special When Lit: A visual and anecdotal history of Pinball".

We discuss the creation of the book, originally published in 1979, came out at a time of great change for pinball. The industry was moving from electro-mechanical games to solid state. The book touches on a broad history of the game, a description of the appeal from social, art, and gameplay aspects, and even a peek into the future (circa 1979), which turned out to be quite prescient!

Special When Lit can be purchased here: amazon.com link »

Episode 460 - Houston Arcade Expo, Acrylic Bingo, Williams Deluxe Official Baseball, Loof's Lite-A-Line

I went to the Houston Arcade Expo and talk a bit about what sets the show apart, along with the debut of the Acrylic Bingo project!

Shawn did an excellent job with fabricating a new cabinet and playfield for Golden Gate, one of the most complex and astounding bingo pinball machines, out of acrylic. It was great to meet new folks and old friends and teach some how to play.

I worked on a Williams Deluxe Official Baseball, and talk a bit about the common fixes needed.

Lastly, listener Gene wrote in with his experience at Loof's Lite-A-Line, a pinball gambling parlor on Long Beach. Gene's photos are available here: https://store.orangephotography.com/p1009785287

Episode 461 - New game -- with flippers, 3D printed Bally clutch, 1969 Williams Seven Up

Another episode, another new game announcement - this one decidedly not EM, but interesting all the same.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/p3-game-so-you-want-to-be-a-hero-quest-for-glory-pinball

There is a potential new EM podcast coming - looking forward to it! The more EM content, the better!

In other news, a Pinside user had an unobtainable part of the reset bank for Bally games 3D printed. I hope we see much more of this in the future, and prevent more games from being scrapped.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/bally-reset-bank-clutch-fix

Today's featured game is 1969's Seven Up by Williams. A very interesting layout with two sequences, multiple ball saving posts, and specials galore.

I apologize for the lack of shows - life has truly gotten in the way, as well as a massive project or two. I do plan, at this moment, to continue the show. I just need to find a time that I can schedule to record. My traditional Wednesday evenings are now unavailable for the foreseeable future.

I've made some changes in my life as well that prevent a stable recording schedule - I am no longer the night owl that I was when the show started. Thank you for listening and sticking with me while I rearrange things to try to bring you some more content. I am interested in doing more interviews, and scaling back my service call schedule should make that more viable.
