I did not have a booth there. I registered as a regular visitor, but when the organizer found out I was 'press' I got a free ticket to the openingnight party, including banquet, and free use of internet in the press office. Nice gesture
Day 3 was the least crowded one for the entire show and that was also noticeable on the pinball booths. No cues although the games in both booths got played pretty much the entire day.
Martin did make GC on Avengers with a score of about 220M/230M. Basically he was sequencing various multiballs. He got to the wizard mode, but drained when it just started, I think.
Speaking of Martin: he did put up an update on the progress of Heighway Pinball. See www.pinballnews.com. Too bad they couldn't show it at the show.
A special thanks to Phil Palmer of Pinball Heaven in the UK: he will be advertising in the upcoming issue of Pinball Magazine (which is top priority to finish up, but that will still take some time) and on top of that Issue 2 will carry the UK WoZ flyer as an insert (as long as supply lasts).
I discussed the WoZ LCD animations with artists JP de Win as I was wondering whether the screen would be using more fullscreen animations. The current 4-split screen looks great, but also a bit 'static'. He assured me once more modes will be programmed the screen will be less 'static' and entertaining. A lot of LCD features have not been implemented yet, so we still have a lot to look forward to.
Both the JJP and Stern crews were great to talk to. Gary got a taste of my sense of humor when I asked him if he would mind to pose for a photo next to WoZ He did mind, but understood I was just joking
