Ummm ive been to both...and yes Eriks show kills expo.
Jus sayin.

#1102 10 days ago

Just a quick confirmation: in addition to Time Fantasy UV, I'll be bringing my Space Station! As Erik originally requested

(the Whirlwind DMD beta code still has some game-breaking bugs that preclude a show gauntlet, so fingers crossed those will be ironed out in time for LAX...)

#1103 10 days ago

Any idea if any vendors will have shaker motors for sale at the show?

Not just me. Jerry and countless others help make it what it is. I hope everyone has a great time this year!

Not that I’m aware of.

What is this Whirlwind DMD beta code that you speak of? Is there a thread about this?

Sure is:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/whirlwind-software-rewrite-the-journey

Not my development, but I'm one of the beta testers. I had to source the components and build the boardset (~1300 solder joints (!), so I'm proud to say it worked 100% the first time!). Jim is doing a great job but it's funny how many things you take for granted in pinball logic, especially random scenarios that could lead to the ball getting trapped under the ramp LOL.

Nice work and wow this looks amazing. I'm not sure how i messed it. thanks for the link!

Is there anyone going to the show that might be able to transport an escalera back to the Allentown area? Willing to pay

Had planned on going to this show just to play in the tournament with a few buddies but we missed out on the tournament as it’s sold out so we are no longer going. Wish there was a big tournament with unlimited entries like we just finished playing this weekend at Pintastic.

I hear ya, I decided not to make the drive this year to FPF as it’s a long way from KY, actually same distance to Pintastic, about 14 hours. I really enjoy both of these shows as you just show up and qualify anytime, no worries to pre-register. I played in the pincinatti tourney the first year and loved it, really liked the two tournaments, finished 2nd in both and have some very cool plaques from the show! Very fun and liked the hotel. Would’ve loved to play this year, but didn’t register in time. It’s so nice too, as it’s so close to me, (within two hours), and a very good show otherwise. I guess I’ll just have to remember next year, but this may get to be like pinburgh and sell out so quickly, just very stressful. I mark my calendar for shows you just show up to and qualify, thank goodness most are still this format. I’ve always said qualifying is half the fun. Checking to see where you stand against the competition, I’ve always enjoyed that. Or maybe they could at least do an open strikes tourney on the last day? I’d still be there! I know FPF was going to try that on the last day.

#1114 7 days ago

Mark your calendars for 7/1 so not to miss out! Both tournaments are being increased to 100 entries next year most likely!

Sorry about that, but we don’t like HERB events. They just aren’t very fun.

Will do, and glad to hear your adding more players. If you don’t like HERB style that’s your opinion, but I know many people that prefer that style tournament. Anyway, what about PAPA style? That is what Pintastic does as well, where you play five games and you have to be good consistently on one ticket. Whatever style, just wish it wasn’t capped off, where the more players you get the bigger and better the tourney. That was so cool where pinball expo had about 170 players in the Classics! That’s the most I’ve ever seen there, plus 32 qualified instead of the usual 16.

Quoted from Classics_Master:

Neither are popular with new players. Papa style is too hard and both have a steep barrier to entry. With HERB, you’ll have to commit at least 80-90 dollars per event to have any shot at making finals.

Pincinnati costs $20 to enter. That’s easier for newer players to do and matchplay is way more fun. Plenty of HERB formats out there if that’s what you’d prefer. Pinburgh got to 1k players due to the format and how fun it is.

Every format has its negatives. Only negative to matchplay is the limited field.

HERB is basically all negatives imo. Haha

Definitely agree, more of a fun tournament than a money pit this way. bummed I didn’t enter in time but I’m glad you guys aren’t doing cash grab herb.

#1118 7 days ago

Has anyone every gotten a breakdown from the tournament organizers of the large HERB events on how the money worked out? I know Trent at EXPO this year laid it out which is nice, but I don’t think this was ever communicated in all the other HERB events I’ve played in. Always thought that was sketchy as hell.

I know Andy Rosa has ran some great tournaments in Flint Michigan with 100% paybacks, classics were great, top prize was usually around $1000 and 2nd $500 and that was just with a couple days qualifying, main was even higher. Can’t remember how many places paid out, want to say too 8 at least, maybe all 16 qualifying got at least something. Usually only like 40 players or so as well.

#1120 7 days ago

Yeah I need to make it to one of the Rosa tournaments one of these days.

Yes awesome tournaments, been to many of them, and they attracted the top players too. Great memories from those, plus been to a few at the Bavarian Inn he ran as well, indoor waterpark and mini golf right in the area of the tournament, they were usually in December there.

#1122 6 days ago

I don't hate HERB but the other formats are just so much more fun and easier on my wallet. There are a lot of HERB tournaments out there to go to. This is one of the few shows doing other formats and I like that. So much more fun!

Your comment on the Ohio thread:

“ Is this thread still called, what’s for sale “in Ohio” right now?
Lol you’re a real piece of work. I’ll see you at Pincinnati.”

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/whats-for-sale-in-ohio-right-now/page/134#post-6518286

This reads like a threat to me. And honestly I feel you should not be given entry for it. Additionally calling me a “fag” in your PM to me is really low brow. You have a problem with gay people?

Pincinnati is a welcoming place but stay away from me. I have zero interest in meeting you.

You are bending the truth. I have no problem with you. I was looking forward to having a beer with you. Ask anyone that knows me here on pinside, you have no worries.

" I was very happy as Hand of the King". Too early? Ha Ha

#1144 3 days ago

Im sitting here on Thanksgiving and cannot wait to play with mostly players Ive never played with before in the two tournaments. I excited but nervous that Matchplay will put me on Jungle Queen 8 rounds in a row and Ill be dead last. If that happens Ill just grab a beer and flip away the rest of the night in freeplay. Can't wait to be there in a little over a week.

I’ll go ahead and guarantee this doesn’t happen. Find the B lane on the plunge and you’ll be alright.

Use the mini flippers to bounce the ball instead of flipping it away. Stay up top. Aim for the saucers.
