Episode 440 - Robo-Frenzy To-do, Multi-Races wiring and changes, 1959 Williams Golden Bells

Robo-Frenzy has had a small advancement, but more time is needed to test everything.

Multi-Races, I am having some second thoughts about how I will construct parts of the game. Discussion awaits!

Today's game is the 1959 Williams "Golden Bells" - https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1045

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.

Today's game is 1942's Keeney Towers: https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=5095

My experience at Texas Pinball Festival as part of Coin-Op Carnival. An unforgettable weekend!

Some photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/8hNHQvpxRTJqoFPM8

Ryan is doing a solo presentation for the next tour stop - the Abrams Planetarium at Michigan State University. Aside from a 360-degree video of Wayne Neyens and his "Spirit of '76", there will be a selection of Neyens' games available on free play!

Be sure to follow the appearances page for a tour stop near you.

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

Apr 24, 2019
Ryan's tour stop at Abrams Planetarium was excellent! Read the writeup at http://www.coinopcarnival.com/news/

There are two tour stops happening this weekend! Pinball at the Zoo and the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (S.P.A.C.E.).

See http://www.coinopcarnival.com/appearances for more details.

I worked on a Bally Circus this past week that needed more than a little help, and I've been wiring Robo-Frenzy - just a little more left!

Sophie has removed everything from the playfield and cleaned the 5 Star!

Today's featured game is 1959's Gottlieb "Hi-Diver": https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1165

Thank you znet! Very happy that you have enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun to put together, and hopefully that comes across in the reading.

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).
