    Quoted from Pinballwiz45b:

    Will there be a Bride of Pinbot 2.0 available for play at the event?

    At this time, no. Replay does not own a Bride 2.0 and I'm not aware of anyone bringing one.

    Quoted from gstellenberg:

    Same for us. We'll have the P3 ready to play when the show opens on Thursday.
    See y'all there.

    Same here. I will be there Weds. For setup. My vendor area will have over 2,000 console games for sale at the show.

    Try your hand at the Replay World Championship (yes, it's arcade games and not pinball)

    The Replay World Championship is a 3-day classic arcade tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of over $4,000. The winner of the tournament will be anointed the World Champion of Classic Arcade Games by the Replay Foundation until the tournament takes place again the following year.

    Every attendee of ReplayFX will be permitted to play three games in the Replay World Championship for free. Following these three attempts, a single $25 entry fee will earn players 40 additional attempts with which to achieve their highest possible scores across 8 different classic arcade titles. The 43 total attempts may be divided by players in whatever fashion they feel offers them the best strategic opportunity to qualify for the final rounds. Players will not be permitted to purchase additional qualifying attempts at any time.

    Only the highest score on each tournament machine will be counted toward a player’s overall qualifying score. This means if a player attempts the same machine 4 times over the course of the 3-day qualifying period, only the highest score out of those 4 attempts will be counted. Only a player’s best 5 performances on the 8 available arcade titles will count toward his or her qualifying total. This defines the highest possible qualifying score as 500 points. This detail also means a player can strategically choose to avoid 3 or fewer of the arcade titles entirely during the qualifying period and still advance to the final rounds.

    During the final rounds on Saturday evening, the top 24 qualifiers will compete in a head-to-head bracket, with the top 8 seeds receiving a first-round bye. Games will be played either as single-game elimination or best-two-games-out-of-three depending on which machine is chosen. The games may or may not be different from those used during qualifying, and the higher seed will not be permitted to choose the same game in more than one round.

    Players and press should note that this is not a high score contest. Players will be asked to compete on the games in person, as they stand, with no custom button configurations, private joysticks, or personalized equipment. All players will compete on the same machines. While some world records may be broken, the ultimate goal is not to set high scores in an idyllic setting, but rather to crown a World Champion in a raucous, tournament atmosphere.

    I tried this out last year and it was a lot of fun. I also quickly learned that the video game world also has their equivalents of Keith Elwin and Jorian Engelbrektsson. The list of games is already made public and you can try them out on MAME if you're so inclined. They are: Missile Command, Dig Dug, Time Pilot, StarGate, Centipede, Frogger, Space Zap, Gyruss, Crazy Climber, and Lady Bug.

    #255 3 years ago

    How about some guest speakers:

    Friday, July 29
    3:15pm: Dave Marston – Pinnsylvania

    David Marston has given presentations and conducted panels at Pinball Expo and Pintastic New England, including “Pinball on Record”, “The History of Pinball Fandom”, “The Data Collectors: Pinball’s True Historians”, “Pinballs for Italy”, “How Can We Find Good Pinball Games On Location and Reward the Operators?”, and more. Dave also writes for PinGame Journal and has written for other pinball publications in the past.

    In Dave’s own words: “From border to border, Pennsylvania is loaded with good pinball games available to the public. You just have to be prepared for a roadtrip. This is intended to be an interactive session where we review twenty years of leads I have gathered about good pinball spots throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”

    Dang it, looks like I need to pick up a trackball!

    #257 3 years ago

    Anyone from Boston driving down? I need a pinball backglass picked up and delivered there. I am from Pittsburgh so can be there any day that is works for you!

    #258 3 years ago

    This will be my first time at Pinburgh and I'm really looking forward to it. This thread is really helpful in knowing what to expect and how many things will be going on. Flying out two weeks from today. Hope to make some new friends and am stoked to see some old ones!

    #259 3 years ago

    Is there a for sale thread?

    #260 3 years ago
    Quoted from ercvacation:

    Is there a for sale thread?

    There isn't currently, but feel free to post for sale games here.

    I'm going to be bringing a METLE and TFLE to the show for sale.

    #261 3 years ago

    WTB Met Pro LED, please contact me if you have one available for pickup during Pinburgh. Would also consider NIB, if any distro in the Pittsburgh area has them.

    There was talk after last years Pinburgh about the concrete floors taking their toll on everyone over the long tourney. Was any solution ever found to this? I know some people brought mats to stand on.

    It really wasn't as bad as I expected. Just sit down somewhere between rounds or bring stuff and sit during rounds - anti-fatigue mat, folding stool, etc.

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    Frequent runs between the bar and the tournament area solved it for me

    I really wish I would have figured out that there was beer available BEFORE Sunday.

    #269 3 years ago
    Quoted from Cornelius:

    Well the portable bars in the hall itself were a real surprise to me... but we always left the hall for dinner, beer breaks and more... probably a bit too frequently

    #270 3 years ago
    Quoted from TomGWI:

    But don't move those chairs in the hall or you will be in trouble.

    Just the red chairs. NOBODY TOUCH THE RED CHAIRS.

    /man I wish I was going this year.

    FS Jurassic Park and Gottlieb Royal Flush (from the 70's not 50's)

    Jurassic Park $2800 obo - was routed at some point but the playfield and backglass are nice. There is some wear on the scoops which I covered up with cliffys. The T Rex works perfectly. I replaced the left/right motor from a complete dino assy that I picked up and that fixed the problem. If interested, contact me and I'll send pics.

    Royal Flush $900 obo - the playfield is extremely nice and with a tiny bit of wear above one insert only. The rest of the playfield looks brand new. The backglass is almost perfect. This machine was just shopped. If interested, contact me and I'll send pics.

    I can bring them to the show or they can be picked up in South Park PA, which is 7 miles outside the city.

    #273 3 years ago

    Keeping with the EM theme... I'm looking for any of the following. Must be in great shape with little to no playfield wear:
    1. Gottlieb Sky Jump -or- Free Fall
    2. Gottlieb Hit the Deck -or- Neptune
    3. Gottlieb Super Spin
    4. Gottlieb Strange World

    #274 3 years ago

    I have a NOS WPT playfield and NOS WPT plastic set for sale that I can bring if anybody is interested.

    The cost for carpeting was exceptionally high. But as an alternative, there is a nice lounge section in the middle of the Pinburgh area and we have a lot more seating available around the area.

We will be bringing both of these games to ReplayFX in our booth for everyone to enjoy and will be selling raffle tickets at the show if not sold out prior.

    It was my favorite place.

    We ate at the Meatball place twice. Great stuff. I thought it was called Sienna Mercato though -- but apparently it's both(?) according to the googles.

    Did any sickness go around ReplyFX last year? Between lack of sleep and and close contact, I tend to get sick during big events like this.

    Good luck dude. Most people in Pittsburgh are dangerously underweight due to lack of eating options.

    #296 3 years ago

    Trust me, I've tried this! I guess I need to bust out the hazmat suit. Cosplay opportunity?

    Why not dress as a Ghostbuster while playing GB?

    That's win-win!

    #298 3 years ago

    Speaking of hand sanitizer, will there be small sanitizer stations/bottles at the event or should I bring my own?

    #300 3 years ago

    My ReplayFX checklist:

    1. Play all the games. All of them.
    2. Meet Jack Danger.
    3. Meet Todd Tuckey.
    4. Meet lots of Pinsiders.
    5. Buy parts and mods and T-shirts.

    So excited.
