Quoted from jaytrem:
Came across plenty of issues on the solid states too. With that many machines going, you know a certain % will have issues. I suspect most people have good intentions. I don't doubt that people do it, but I think somebody would have to be nuts to haul a junker just to get in for free.
My machine played pretty well, but like JR, I could feel the difference. Especially when the whole place was up and running.
My wife and I love both solid state as well as EM and played both at the show, the problem cut across both generations of pins.
One of the best playing pins we tried was 4 Million BC, it looked and played excellent.
I have resisted listing the pins we played that were "bad" just on the general principle that 30 to 50 year old stuff can break at an inopportune moment.. There was more than usual this year though compared to 2019.
