Quoted from RandyW:

I really want to add a Night Moves to my collection.

By far the best cocktail made. I’d love to add CC to my collection. When I played it however I found that it doesn’t seem to be as strategic as NM. Just multiball galore! I think it was the first game to use Sys3 so it was feature light at the time.

I have a dfoxy lady. Bought for $100. Took a lot of work to get it running and cleaned up, I want to re-theme it, but have never done a theme change so stuck right now on figuring out how to draw out an image for the playfield.

To get an accurate playfield image for a re-theme you'd have to take out the F.L. playfield and remove everything from the top, and anything sticking through from the bottom, then scanning the pf yourself or take it to a print shop to scan. Then in photoshop or illustrator draw your new theme. Then print out a decal and apply to plexi like the 'hard tops' people make now, lotsa work.
Sounds like you spent some time restoring it, and since all cocktails can be finicky and die without warning I'd prob'ly leave it as is

I re-themed a Rapid Fire into a 300 based on the movie and it was a b*tch. Even with the pf art being a translite between a plexi cover and wood 'light holes/playfield'. Finished it just in time for an arcade/pinball show in Miami, unexpectedly sold it there, and never saw it again

@ miracleman Hi. I have a hyperball. And I’m thinking in do some like 300. That looks really neat. Now I’m changing the playfield in Cirqus Voltaire. As soon I finish I’ll look forward to do something like your.

Someone that played mine had a great idea I should have done. Wire the coin door tilt switch as the start button so you have to yell "THIS...IS...SPARTA !!!" and kick the coin door to start a game.

LMAO.

Yes!

My friend showed me a rethemed Kiss into a Slayer at a party he went to...lol. It had mechanical score reels sitting ON TOP of the back box and *no* flippers -- they replaced them with pop bumpers.

Only two rules on the rule card:

1. Go F*ck yourself
2. DIE!

Glorious.

#612 8 days ago

LMAO. that’s the way should be. Do you still have the pdf for the playfield? If so I want it if you can. Thank you

I'd happily send you any finished files I used for the game, but they'll only fit a Rapid Fire.
Some files might just be a flat image without layers.

I think I've heard Hyperball is a reliable game, Rapid Fire's launching gun overheating is a common problem.

Hyperball is very reliable. Williams system 7. Thank you!!!

I just joined the club! Acquired a Caribbean Cruise. =)

And just released our latest podcast showcasing this wonderful System 3 cocktail pin! :

#617 7 days ago

More details on the acquire of this great System3 Caribbean Cruise!
Was dead as a door nail when I got it. Set it up in our living room and went to town on it.
Main fuse holder was junk. Replaced it and viola! Now game powers up and can start a game. =)
No solenoids though.
Solenoid fuse blowing upon start up. Replaced it's bridge and now have solenoids! =)
Only other issue was the left pop bumper light never turned on. The pop bumper light circuit in this game behave like flashers.
So when the pop bumper pulses, the light flashes brighter for that pulse. I looked at the warming resistors on a circuit board under the playfield and found one had become unsoldered. Cleaned it up as well as the others and soldered them all back in with fresh solder.
Game didn't get much play during its life so the flippers and pop assemblies showed no wear so left them alone and shopped out the playfield with clear silicone all around and some teal and pink post rubber. Warm white comets for the GI and colored comets for the feature lights.
Great looker and a lot of fun to play!

since the time that I was looking for a functional one... imported from Holland.
It really is an amazing pinball machine, and a lot of fun that thrills everyone.

Probably my favorite pinball machine, I play it with great pleasure every day.

The one on the left is imported from Belgium, and it is the one that is in photos on ipbd.
The one on the right is imported from Holland.

and finally, this star shooter imported from germany.
It is in original collector's condition, deserves its place in a museum ...

I could be interested in an exchange for this one, with another cocktail pinball table...
Night moves, carribean cruise, or a game plan star trip, family fun...shooter 3 (resized).jpg

Beautiful machine. I'd love to try one of these some day, but holy crap they're spendy (if you can even find one!)

Great find and looks to be in good shape too.

#625 1 day ago

thank you very much for your reply.
Effectively the rotation is in really good condition, cabinet, playfield and plastic set...
I just change all the rubbers and I put it in full led.
It works perfectly, and I am lucky to have a new Polzin board charactization, even if the original board still works.

#626 1 day ago

These are really cool. What is the name of the billiards one? Rotation? These look fun to play. I will have to look up some videos of the game play. Thanks for sharing I have not seen some of these before.

Rotation VIII

Quoted from Asterix:

and I am lucky to have a new Polzin board

Polzin came by my shop many years ago to look at game i was selling and while he was there i showed him my rotation VII that wasn't working and was at my wits end trying to get it working...he said he was very familiar with Z80 stuff so i told well take it back with you and see if you can fix it for me. Well a few weeks later or so i got a call saying it was up and running and when could he bring it back....I was so thrilled he fixed it. Ever since there he gained a passion for it and found himself one and starting remaking boards for it. So good to have him in our community for this game. Thank you Tim

So it's thanks to you that Tim got interested in the rotation viii pinball... it's huge ...
so allow me to thank you, because without his work I would never have dared to try the experience of 'find one.

Quoted from Asterix:

So it's thanks to you

Technically yes but no need to thank you...it's all Tim

because without his work

I hear you...he made me a key pad as mine was missing and also gave a few of his new boards even though i didn't need them

I had no idea someone was remaking the boards for Rotation VIII (8) I had a chance to buy one that wasn’t working but passed because boards weren’t available, to my knowledge.

#632 12 hours ago

so for information Tim Polzin stopped the production of boards several years ago, and entrusted the plans to pinball center.

I have a scoop for you, because I recently contacted John, and he told me the good news, I quote:

"We are working on redrafting the replacement MPU board, hope to have something by the summer or fall of this year...I will keep you in my notify file once we are happy with the results!"

This is really great news that I am happy to share here.
