Quoted from ForceFlow:
Backglasses will delaminate, and cabinets & playfields will start planking.
They need to be stored at a fairly stable temperature and humidity or they will get ruined.
Truth here. Do not do it.
Quoted from Silverballer:
If you have the coin I would follow Vid's suggestion and put a window unit in. Your pin will love it and you will too.
If he has the money to buy another game without having room for it I would hope he has money for a window unit. My games are in my attached, finished garage. Because of code there is no AC vents into there. For now I have a 12k btw window unit. Will replace it with a split in a few years when I get tired of pissing with the window unit.
Quoted from KornFreak28:
Any of you experienced this first hand? Where your pins got damaged because of a hot garage? I just went in there and its probably around 80 degrees
You certainly seem like you are going to do it regardless of what people say. Many have told you not to do it, some with insane amounts of experience (vid) and yet you still are looking for personal anecdotes.
Quoted from bigd1979:
Yea ive seen many that dont work well but i have a really nice one andbeen using it for 5 years and it works very well and has alot of features . Its great for when u have a odd window.
I hear the ones that have an inlet that pulls air from outside work pretty well. I have yet to see one of those in person as most do not seem to have that.
