    Recently I purchased a Serenade 1948 manufactured by United. I'd like to add it to my current collection list. However the search engine of this website can't find the game. I had the same problem before with another game, C.O.D. Williams 1953. Does anyone know how to do this?

    There are several games not in the Pinside database. I wanted to find United " Mexico", but only the bingo of the same name shows up. Also, I once owned a Maresa "Dakota", but that too is not in the database.

    Both titles have now been added:

    I sent a PM to Robin and he added the United "UTAH" for me but there's no backglass picture. Same with the title you added to the database, the United "Mexico". Is it possible for the backglass pictures to be added?

    Thanks,

    If you have a photo, you can upload it--just don't copy it from IPDB.

    Were all the backglass images automatically added for the Gottlieb, Williams etc pinball machines in the database or did the Pinsiders have to upload the images themselves?

    There were already backglass images for the other games in my collection which is why I'm wondering.

    Thanks,

    I have photos of the Maresa "Dakota" that I once owned....somewhere.

    They were uploaded by various game owners, as far as I was aware.

    I uploaded a couple images but don't see a way to add the thumbnail for the splash screen or in my collection. My "Collection" shows a gray circle where the game image should be and the archive search for this game shows "Sorry, no thumbnail available!".

    Which game?

    #13 1 year ago

    The United "UTAH".

    I set one of the images as the thumbnail image. If you hover on the image, there are a few options, but I think only editors have the ability to mark images as the thumbnail image.

    #15 1 year ago

    Sweet, I thought it might require an editor. Thanks for adding it for me. Now my Collection is "complete". (with the images)

    One of the oldest games I've had the pleasure to restore... took on a job for a woman who grew up with one of these at her home... it was her father's pride and joy. Following his death it was moved around but never played, used mostly as a stacking space for kids junk in back bedrooms. She decided to have me get it going for her following her father's death... when I delivered it to her home and set it up and she began playing, she broke down in utter joy and emotion, as it brought her back to that wonderful time in her life when she and her dad would spend time playing. One of the cooler moments in my life, will never forget that. Game play is way cool for 1948 - I was surprised how fun it was - playing that is. Good luck finding a United schematic... ugggghhhh.

    Yeah, seems the only United schematics available are for bingo machines. I even tried Mike Pacak to no avail.

    Hi Dono, nice to see your Serenade! And sweet story about the woman and her father, thanks for sharing. My game is still deep asleep, I'll wake it up in the course of this year.
