Pulled from another recent thread. The GI color scheme on this is just awful.

Red light, green light. Seems appropriate.

I'll second that but I guess we all have different tastes.

Red and green are the worse for GI

By Jiminy , it looks like Christmas

I used to be a huge fan of colored GI. While I still fully believe if you own the game then you can do whatever you want, I personally have become more inclined to warm frosted white in the GI. I will put some colors in certain spots but not that much anymore.

I'm not going to lie though.... I am guilty of doing that same thing to a getaway before lolololololololol. Hindsight is 20/20 right

#1058 2 years ago

Colored GI is ok in small doses. I've come to find that it's maybe ok in the very back of playfields, but for the most part it just washes out the plastics and you can't even appreciate the artwork and colors of the plastics themselves.

So I almost made my own horror story last summer, but managed to avoid it... but I'll share the story briefly...

I have a HUO Bally Black Belt. From what I was told, the previous owner got it from Bally for some work he did for the game, it stopped working, and had just sat since. It is really weird, as in I can't get it to get going no matter what I or anyone that I know who knows repair does.

I had it in the garage working on it last summer, and had the playfield propped up on the front end just a bit. I had to close the garage and didn't think that the playfield was that near the front end when I did. A day or two later, I went to open the garage and the handle caught the bottom of one of the playfield metal pieces where it keeps it in the right spot, and the garage door continued as it went up to lift the entire playfield out of the game and dangle it by that small piece above the game. I managed to run out of the house, grab it and put it back in safely.

But man, that was ALMOST a huge disaster.

It looks like the scene in T2 after the war. I would call it perfect theme integration.

#1066 2 years ago

Thats a whole lot of dust!!!

#1067 2 years ago

Strikes and Spares. Horrible black mess , all the Bumper coils were fried and a few others.
This is quite common , but if you take a deep breath,DSCF1765 (resized).JPG you can almost smell the coils cooking ...

I guy I worked for, many years ago, would use nails and paper clips as fuses til something
would fry. " There's the problem! "

In France, we also have specialists of the "system D" with the imagination overflowing. One day, Danny60 a friend of mine, found a pinball machine with this beautiful DIY. Can't resist to share his pictures.

With this, no risk of electrical problems and fuses never blow

That's more like a explosion . I can't believe they fixed that . Unless a new board 'fixed' it .

That must be the SP LE with realistic volcano wizard mode!

#1075 2 years ago

It's much easier to find the problem area if you let it catch on fire first.

It would have to be new driver and display boards for sure. It caught on fire in a local movie theatre.

How are you to termite proof that buggy cabinet?

#1088 2 years ago
Quoted from cottonm4:

Yes, it looks like a termite attack. In this case the wood becomes very friable and leaves in tatters. The traces of sawdust in the form of small balls are no doubt.

On the other hand, for this poor TX-SECTOR, I doubt very much that this is the work of termites:

Unless you are made of wood, I don't think you have to worry.

The graphics depict an archer ready to let loose an arrow. I know I've seen it before, I just can't think of what game it was.
