Quoted from Jappie:

On a later 80B's like NM, I usually only make sure that there's 2 wires for the 5v and 2 wires for ground in the double edged connector between mpu and driver board.
A more elaborate approach is needed for system 80, 80A and early 80B. Night Moves however is a late (actually the last) system 80B.

Okay, even those I'm not very familar with. How do I find out which is which and does that mean I have to add wires to the connector??

» YouTube video

Watch this video. It's about system 80 and 80A, but the procedure for the double edged connector is the same for 80B.

On 5:35 you see an explanation of what I mean. And yes: If the wires aren't there already, you will have to add them.

You can purchase the double edge connector ( between MPU and Driver board) with the mod already done if you don't feel you want to do it yourself.

Hi, folks. Tomorrow, I'm picking up an Eros One, but I hadn't even heard of cocktail games until yesterday. What I need to know, at the moment, is do they have a universal disassembly to make it lighter / easier to transport, and if so, does anyone have a video to demonstrate it?

Much appreciation in advance!

#55 4 months ago

Nope, they dont really come apart. I mean, you could take the glass off, and then seperate the base from the playfield with a bunch of work, but it would be a pain in the a**.

And as someone who has a lot, I can tell you they are MUCH heavier then they look like they should be

#56 4 months ago

Sounds great! hahaha, I've got a friend going with me, hopefully we two can carry it into the van well enough. Thanks for the heads up!

#57 4 months ago

Eros One obtained! Only took 7 hours on the road and $250. Will try to post photos tomorrow!

Sidenote: Is it okay to ask repair / maintenance questions in here?

#58 4 months ago

I have a shopped out euros one that doesn’t fully boot if anyone is after one lmk. Locate in Nebraska but can get to Des Moines pretty easy

#59 4 months ago

Congrats on the Eros One score, I love cocktail pins myself!

Quoted from Finsettler:

Of course, or you can start your own thread.

Two great repair sites are available:

Thanks! I haven't even plugged it in yet, I need to get a rubber kit and clean up the playfield asap. The guy said it plays, but that a few bulbs need replaced -- and he's the guy who bought it in 1980, so he's had it all this time. Pretty stoked to get it up and running.

What do you think of Foxy Lady cocktail.
Just wondering if I should pull the trigger.
The only cocktail I played is Roy CLARK.

Do it, do it now! If it's priced right that is.
But then again I'm a cocktail pin fanatic.

Foxy only worth up to 300 for nice, above players. 400 minty, fully shopped, maybe leds.
I have one i got in the 300 range, nice, above players condition.
Not going to lie, very basic playing pin, rules. Not the best cocktail out there, but for a cheap price its worth it.

Look guys, got all of mine in one place finally!

Always looking for more! And a cheap way to ship these too

My Eros reads "tilt" when I plug it in, half the field lights up and only the drop targets react to being tapped. Didn't come with a manual, so I'm ordering one asap. Blegh.

@twitami share dude! Some of us have none!

There's a guy in Indiana selling a pair of Eros 1's I believe.asking $600 for the pair 1 works for about 10 minutes the other does not work.he's also VERY open to trade.

#69 3 months ago

Yeah I was trying to figure out a way to get those two. Shipping on these is literally 2 to 3 times what most are worth..lol.

#70 3 months ago

If it helps I've bought a pin from him and have been very pleased with it

#71 3 months ago

I drove 6 hours total to get the Eros I bought. Surely you'd enjoy a pleasant MD to IN round trip.

WELCOME NICO!!!
It’s truly an honor to have such an incredible Pinsider join our humble club!

#75 3 months ago

Thanks Iso... lots to like about Eros One! Led Zeppelin-era artwork, good layout, and real chimes! I'm planning to have my PF cleared to take it all the way. Might also have a new cabinet built out of quality ply vs. the veneered heavy-as-hell MDF. Anyway, will post any progress here... cheers all.

Just joined the club with a recently aquired Allied Leisure Take Five. Anyone know the history behind the relationship between Allied Leisure and Fascination?

Nice! Watch that right flipper rubber though. It's a bit off.
