Quoted from jboner1058:

Sounds good man! I will say this, the game is a dust magnet and the playfield shows everything. I’ve cleaned it at least three times in the last 2 months.

Sounds like you could use a room air purifier.

Hello POTO friends. Can anyone tell me whether the ball deflector under the organ ramp should have any kind of spring on it? Mine came that way, with a spring to keep it from flipping up and getting stuck. now the spring has disintegrated. Any photos would help too. Thanks!

No... just a hinged flap.

So now that the game is done, its time to move on to the real fun. Making the topper. After toying around with a couple of designs ive drawn up, ive got it narrowed down to two that I like. One will be a set of 19th century French carriage lanterns with large LED flame bulbs that will require tying into the AC power in the cab right before the transformer. The other would be a smaller candelabra with LED flicker bulbs with the phantoms mask in front of them.

Anyone interested in a GIzmo led smoother for GI for system 11 and data east? It’s to kill the strobe effect in the GI when the lights flicker on and off and makes them shut off more like incandescents. I’ve decided to put in something a little more programmable in phantom so I can program all 4 GI strings separately to fade and flicker easier with my topper I’m working on. Asking $50 for it and it’s maybe been used a total of 3 hours. I’d include shipping for free if within the US.

I would be interested. Is this somethign that is plug and play? I already have LED's in my Phantom and this might make them more appealing to me. You can PM me if that is easier, or email me at wmspins@gmail.com

Thanks!

What about a chandelier that falls on their head during the game? Hehe

Progress. I’m gonna use a flame bulb tied in to the playfield candles and add a warm flasher tied to the either the playfield face or the under organ flasher

#1113 6 months ago

I also need to make a wood pedestal base for this in order to run the wires nicely and I’m looking for some old organ pipes

These pics are from his site, but Cliffy now has protectors. I know I’m gonna have to use the mirror one because the clear is getting chipped up on that hole and my old one was pretty much destroyed on my original playfield

Has anyone reproduced the Excellence in Quality sticker or does anyone have an extra one for sale?

I have an image of what it looks like but I haven’t gotten around to making a close reproduction of it yet. Found some similar paper to print it on but I’ve been knee deep in working on a new project to get back to the little odds and ends extra stuff on phantom. I’m working with the DE-10 nano fpga board making some pretty awesome retro computing stuff. If you guys like video machines look up the “Mister” project on YouTube. It’s basically a board that can emulate tons of 80s arcade, console, and computer circuit boards EXACTLY like the original hardware since it uses hardware emulation instead of software. Gonna stuff it all into a Commodore Pet64 body with a replaced 9” pvm tube and chassis. Then after that I’ll get back to this cursed phantom and do the bells and whistles

Quoted from jmountjoy111:

As many POTO as I have seen that had the center insert burned there is a need for these. My double scoring is torched too and apparently that was a common failure on the game. The waterslide decals you made look good.

is there a file uploaded for the decals, im working on one thats really burnt...Thanks.

#1124 66 days ago

someone added like 3 layers of mylar over the burnt insert, thats the bubbling..
