Quoted from Matt_Rasmussen:

Idiot? Necessary?

I called myself an idiot as I was berating myself for asking stupid questions.

So yes, it was necessary.

Thanks for the concern though. I'll try to be nicer to myself in the future.

I only read this thread because it started with "OMG" .... But seriously congrats on the nice HUO game

Those are the original batteries! Looks like they haven't leaked. I had those red ones in my NIB STTNG, too....just shriveled, but didn't leak. Did we get lucky or were those leak proof batteries or something!?

#55 4 years ago

Probably still shows original play count.. Pull up the menu and post the total play pic

every time you mention your STTNG i get this tinge of jealousy. just FYI!

Nice find!

I'm sure it will clean up great.

#58 4 years ago

Very nice find HUO for sure ,enjoy

I am not the best at pulling these up ... Is this pic right?

Relax bro.

I don't know why you think that someone would buy a pinball machine, set it up, and never play it - not once - while at the same time, opening the game up just to chip away at the shooter lane and cover the playfield in filth.

The game is used. Thousands of games probably. But it very well may be HUO. Thank your lucky stars and give up on the "never used" fantasy.

Audits mean nothing. Dead batteries will reset them.

Quoted from Bulldog1008:

Right pic. Doesn't mean a thing. Reset or batteries pulled show the same thing.

You have shooter lane wear.

Nice MM for sure, no where near never used.

I have come to that conclusion as well. Thx All.

OMG!

Well, it's still a pretty sweet game.

#64 4 years ago

Was this estate sale not advertised? I would have expected at least 10 pinheads fighting over this thing. Especially in California; or Texas for that matter.

#65 4 years ago

I do not think it as listed ... Total luck I found it.

#66 4 years ago

meant "was" not "as"

The best way... Congratulations!

Wow, that's quite a time capsule! Congrats....

Whats up with the blue CPU board or were all WPC-95 boards blue like that?

#69 4 years ago

As long as you didn't pay more than $3 k, it's a great find!

#70 4 years ago

So you found it by luck at an estate sale that wasn't listed and bought it sight unseen. OK....

#71 4 years ago

You should really take those batteries out no? Or are they so old they won't leak anymore lol

#72 4 years ago

Pretty sure you can go into the menus and find out just how many games have been played.

#73 4 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

They made a change to batteries sometime in the late 90's to make them cheaper and they started leaking after that.

He posted a picture - zero.

But battery failure, removing batteries with power off, resetting audits, makes it zero too.

Definitely used most of my pins still have the original stickers like yours .I have a tz in the same kind of condition except no shooter lane wear and is so clean I was told it sat in a basement untouched for 20 years. I was wondering when you were picking this up if interested in shipping let md know im interested .

#76 4 years ago

The magical unused game that needs a playfield cleaning....

#77 4 years ago

Is that Blue CPU board normal? Mine is green.

Also, check the version of the code ROM - especially for a game that looks like it was played but then not used for ages. Mine was on 0.5. Upgraded to the newest (1.09?) and made a huge difference.

#78 4 years ago

Very nice MM. Looking at your pictures, I would guess it was played until the left troll played up,

#79 4 years ago

That's a very nice find.

Pull those old red batteries out immediately, and bury them with full honors for not leaking - they deserve it.

Put in Lithium AAs, which are (almost) leak-proof.

Combine the Lithium AAs with a remote battery holder and that's as bulletproof as it gets without delicate soldering.

Take some rubbing alcohol on a rag to the shooter lane and take another pic. I bet it looks new after that.

Agreed I always do that and usually makes them look new again

Wouldn't NVRAM be as bulletproof as it gets?

But then you couldn't get Midnight Madness...!

You will note I used the words: "...without delicate soldering."

The RAM in that board is not socketed. You can't just slap a NVRAM chip in.

It is normal. My HUO MM CPU board is blue too. Matching serial numbers.

I bought with the intent to sell

Is it the same one that is now listed for sale on MR. Pinball for $11,000?

That's the first thing I thought when I saw the ad.
