Why can't I find the area on the site to list the games I am bringing?

#403 3 years ago

We're trying to prevent you from bringing junk

Just kidding, I don't know were it is either

#404 3 years ago

Thank you, no idea how I didn't see it before........

#405 3 years ago
Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

What kind of additional costs are there for heating? It seems the weather always turns right before MGC! I would go in a blizzard though so I don't mind 40 degree weather

Stuff like this is always shocking, but it helps people understand why until we do final cash count I'm always nervous that I'm going to need to hock my car...

I'll put it this way - we just added 3 new heaters because of the weather. They do have additional capacity. The cost to rent them set them up and rig the distribution boxes for them, NOT including the cost for the propane for them, is expected to be $3000.

Now, I don't have an exact break down of every heater we're going to have on that thing, but we're using 17 total.

We'll find out exactly how much propane it needs to heat a 24,000 square foot area for three days costs on Monday or Tuesday. :-/

I *think* we'll be okay (yay, strong sales today!) but it's definitely nerve racking and I'm a little more worried about this year than last.

Well, when you see it written like that...yikes! That's a lot, er... LIONMANload of heaters. Welcome to the Midwest Gaming, Heating, and Propane Classic.

#407 3 years ago

We don't need no heaters. You just need to get cozy with the person next to you.

#408 3 years ago

Will someone be selling propane and propane accessories ?

#409 3 years ago

Ha, LOL. For the right price, everything is for sale.

#410 3 years ago

I'll be bringing a Sorcerer and a Swords of Fury to the show!! We need a reason to shout LIONMAN!!

#411 3 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

pretty sure there will be atleast 1 or 2 there already.

This true Jaz? Sure hope so!

#412 3 years ago

Genesis might still make it after all. Turns out the NVRAM chip went bad causing lockups, it forgot everything, and glitches really bad when it would boot. Is anyone at MGC selling NVRAM chips for a system 80B? Hoping to not have to install a battery in my nice fred swemmer mpu.

doesnt Rob Anthony have them, he will be set up at the show

#414 3 years ago

Yep Rob can get you settled at the show. Just visit his booth where Full Throttle will be.

#415 3 years ago
Quoted from PinballKen:

Yep. There will be a GOT Pro and a Premium at the show. Should be in or near the Marco booth unless things change.

Well, I have a shipping confirmation with those listed on it for delivery tomorrow, and i have serial numbers. So unless they shipped empty boxes...

#418 3 years ago

I've got Globetrotters all broken down for transport and Creech will happen tomorrow morning. Both are playing great and looking forward to the show.

I just so happen to have an extra NVRAM for a Swemmer 8TB. Long story short, the one in my board is from barakandl and is the blueprint of the original 5101 (the small socket underneath the NVRAM Swemmer uses). I have an unused one of the larger blueprint that comes stock on a Swemmer board.

Are you setting up Friday/ what time? I'm dropping mine off Thursday (tomorrow! ) evening and hopefully will be there by at least 2pm on Friday. PM me if you want and we can arrange a meet.

#420 3 years ago

Going to go ahead and curse myself. D&D is almost done. I'll be putting it on the truck tomorrow for MGC. it will be for sale.

#421 3 years ago

Hemmed and hawed for a bit, but will be bringing TSPP.

If you don't get it together we can see how long it takes 20 pinheads to reassemble it for you. .
I just ripped my pistol game apart to replace the screws and clean the aluminum.
Fortytwo.

#423 3 years ago

#428 3 years ago

Headed home to load Demo Man up. Tomorrow, can't get here fast enough.

#429 3 years ago

Dang. Went to the MGC site to pre-order tickets, now it says you can't pre-order anymore. Guess I won't be going.

I've got a bad right ankle, can't risk having to stand in line for a half hour. I have to sit down frequently to rest it. Damn chronic pain. Uggh.

#432 3 years ago

Bring cash and show up slightly after 10am. Cash line always moves super fast - probably faster than pre-orders once it gets moving. It's why we start taking pre-orders an hour early.

You can try the door near the pinball hall usually around 10:30 there isn't much of a line there... but like I said, cash only there. Credit does take longer.

#433 3 years ago

Picked up a Dr Who on the way over. One more for the arcade hall

Looking at the MGC website event map. Which letter on the map is the Pinball Hall? Another dumb question, is there food and seating? My bum ankle forces me to sit down & rest every once and awhile.

#436 3 years ago

The arcade hall is Q, R, S and T basically. Food is at J or P. There is seating scattered around, the best places are the speaking hall (also P) and the table top areas. I'd suggest just planning to drop by some speeches or play a few table top games. If you don't know how, there are people to teach you!

Hope that helps!

#437 3 years ago

Still making room for GB? Man there are going to be a pile of them all over SEWI.

#442 3 years ago

I have my Sorcerer fixed and will brought there to play.

#443 3 years ago

I'm taking Flash Gordon and Meteor to MGC. They're both for sale too.

Like Dan said, the line by the pinball hall is usually shorter. If you show up early and the line is too long, I will stand in line for you. PM me if you want. I'll keep an eye out.

how much for flash gordon and condition?

#446 3 years ago

I got hit by the Gremlins too. It was my fault, but I am sure they enjoyed it. I broke the backglass on my Jubilee. The good news is that it is working perfectly. :/

#447 3 years ago

Games are setup. Just waiting for fish tales. I will apologize about Dr Who now as I've already had to fix a few hacks on it. Hope it holds up for the weekend.

Cool thanks. I'm bringing my son also, he likes pinball. Is the pinball hall entrance the one on the map that is near where it says "to lower level"?

#449 3 years ago

We were there setting up earlier tonight, I can't wait for MGC to officially start!

I believe it is by "S" on the map.
