    looking awesome John

    will there be 90's style backbox hinges or going for the 80's bolt on only?

    Quoted from swinks:

    will there be 90's style backbox hinges or going for the 80's bolt on only?

    I originally had the 90s style hinges on it, and the backbox and game ended up being so heavy I prefer removing the backbox entirely for transport, so I ended up going with no hinges.

    There are only 4 or 5 connectors to disconnect, so it's pretty easy.

    It's alive! It was early this morning and I didn't have the overhead shop lights on yet so the LEDs washed it out a little, but here is a short video. More to come!

    The flipper gap looks huge, is it a standard value?

    Wanted to give you all a heads up, some local buddies are coming over tomorrow night (Saturday the 29th) to playtest Spaceballs and we are going to try to live stream it on twitch.

    It's my first ever stream, so I have no idea if it will work. It will be at: https://www.twitch.tv/wolfmarsh

    We will try to start streaming around 8 or 8:30PM eastern time.

    Hey all! Spaceballs is up for a best homebrew TWIPY! If you like the game, please consider tossing me a vote!

    #837 1 year ago

    Absolutely got my vote! Played it at SFG in Atlanta, and man you've done the theme justice, sir! Well done.

    #838 1 year ago

    Was there ever a gameplay video posted for us to see? I haven't been able to find it?

    Quoted from Phantasize:

    Pinball Undesirables streamed it a bit at SFGE, but I can make a more in depth video at some point. I'm not a great streaming personality so I'll need to enlist help.

    Thanks!! If you are going to be at SFGE this year, it will be back with some more upgrades! I've fixed the two places balls kept getting stuck, and I have added a lot of new areas to the software thanks to feedback.

    #841 1 year ago

    Got my vote as well, well done

    #842 1 year ago

    I also voted for your spaceballs pin,good luck! I love the theme and how you executed everything to turn it into a pinball machine. Great job!

    #843 1 year ago

    You got my vote! I have to applaud your efforts on following thru and finishing it up, I have followed so many threds of homebrew pins that just never get finished after all the work that goes into them. Yours looks like it plays really fast, I always loved that movie.

    #844 1 year ago

    You got my vote.
    Pin looks so fun to play!

    #845 1 year ago

    Definitely got my TWIPY vote!

    #846 1 year ago

    Thank you all very much!!

    I continue to tweak the gameplay as more seasoned players get to play it. One piece of feedback I heard was that balls coming out of the Spaceball One lock would go SDTM too much. I had a ball saver there, but just having them drop out of Spaceball One and hit the playfield was a problem.

    I pulled an old wireform out of the spare parts pile and modified it to do the job.

    I'm working on some higher quality pics of Spaceballs to post, I realized recently that I don't have a lot of them.

    #847 1 year ago

    Excellent solution!

    #848 1 year ago

    Just voted for you also! Good luck

    #849 1 year ago

    Working on trying to get some decent photos of the game
