Coffee-Mat question: Does your center kicker hole plastic insert say "WICO Big Top" on it?

20230218_224612 (resized).jpg20230218_224612 (resized).jpg Added 14 months ago:

Kinda weird how that plastic looks like a key fob but Big Top is a home game with no locks.

#1054 1 year ago

The foxy lady is the most popular cocktail pinball machine to be found in Europe. This is the third that I restore, always with the same pleasure. I love this game, its wheel, its 4-tone chime, simple and effective.

How many of yours have physical chime boxes? I've got one here with chimes and one with a digital sound board.

#1056 1 year ago

All three have it...I never asked myself the question, because for me all the foxy lady pinball machines work with the original chime boxes, I didn't know it could work with a digital sound board. Amazing, it's a discovery.

So suddenly, thinking about it, the reverse should work...is it possible to make a star trip work with a chime boxes?

That was going to be my plan... lol

#1058 1 year ago

I would like you to tell me how to do it, I will be interested in doing the same thing on my star trip, swap the sound board with the chime unit. Is it complicated to do?

Or could just a playfield swap work between a foxy lady with chime unit and a star trip with sound board?
That is to say, on one side install the star trip playfield in the cabinet with the chime unit, and on the other side install the Foxy lady playfield in the cabinet with the sound board. Is it as simple as that or are there special connections to be made?

I'll know more in the coming weeks. Hopefully it warms up and I'll feel more like being out in my shop. Finishing shop jobs on the two star trips and the foxy lady here will be priority #1. Then I'll mess around with trying to swap the chime box around.

It's probably just an aging display. The display on my Night Moves is noticablely dimmer than my Caribbean Cruise and some of the other Night Moves pins I've seen. If it really bothers you, replace it with either a new old stock display or better yet, a brand new LED replacement.

#1065 1 year ago

these are new replacement led displays for 80b , it might work , but night moves is not listed on the compatible list.
but are a bit costly at $300.

I got 4-5 sets of the wolfpack led displays last summer for some games, they work great, I'll have to take my night moves out and see what it needs

#1067 1 year ago

Looking to het a roy clark today for a good price, supposedly working. Is there any certain things i should double check when looking at it? Thanks for any pointers.

Also what do these things weigh?

#1068 1 year ago

Drop target mechs are often broken. Pop bumper rods+rings too.

Nice will check those. Thanks for the quick reply. Guy Said boards have been repaired just needs some "points fixed for scoring". Be part of the club soon..

Inspect the flipper linkages under the playfield for cracks. They (foolishly) used plastic actuator cams which can break and those parts are basically unobtainium unless you can find another ALI machine scrapped for parts. Alternatively the flipper mechs can be entirely replaced with more reliable Bally mechs but that is a fair bit of work and also will alter the way the game plays because ALI flippers are longer than anything else.

#1071 1 year ago

Here is my Star Battle. I did find out that after I made the video that the sounds were correct!.

I installed LEDs and Superbands all around. I Also added a Light Socket into the Pop bumper body and replaced the White Cover with a Clear One.

I did get around to making a new plastic with the artwork for the saucer. The machine is now 100%

I made an error in the vid as the cabinet is metal but the top is wood.

I have a couple of those and they don't work. Would you care to share a few helpful hints or should I just send you a box of boards?

Also, see post #1053 above, Does your center hole kicker plastic say "WICO Big Top" on it?

#1073 1 year ago

Picked it up, some switches werent registering. Reseated the board connectors. All work. Got it cheaper because it wouldnt score properly. Lucky me. New garage pin.

It's not a great game but idk, I kinda like my Roy.

So how is that hopeless repair guide coming along?

Maybe if enough of us put our little tidbits of wisdom together we can make bigger tidbits.

Joined the club! I got this Night Moves for $500.
Playfield needs a good cleaning and new rubbers but that's it.

Great deal for $500. That's a fun game!

I just listed some smaller bundles for cocktails, if anyone is looking. I could also be talked in to selling either of the Star Trips I'm working on (not done yet) if interest is there, and I have two extra Gameplan glasses.

They're pretty hard to find tbh. The plastic is brittle and deteriorating more every day. I was working on some 3D modeling/printing but my local resource bailed on me halfway through. I could put you in contact with the guy who made some parts for my Af-Tor if you wanted to see if he would do it. He does great work.

Overall it's not a great design to begin with. Very fragile.

Please send me the info, a friend in wisconsin said he helped someone get some 3d printed. But havent heard back. Gotta start somewhere, thanks for the reply!

#1083 1 year ago

The guy who made my Af-Tor drop target mounts is named Joe Zenkus. I hit him up on Facebook. I'm sure he could model the Allied Leisure parts and make something. Personally I feel like an overall redesign, rather than pure duplication, would be better. Jady Swinks also offered to do it, but before I sent him anything I found a viable drop for my Roy and gave up on it.

Joe did an awesome job for me. Highly recommended. Jady has done fantastic work with classic Stern targets (I bought a bunch of those, too).

#1084 1 year ago

My working idea was that if you redesigned the actual target piece and then replaced the plunger (I believe this one was pulled off an old Williams flipper assembly that I rebuilt but just about any one could be made to work), you wouldn't have to worry about the crappy plastic 'ears' on the original targets breaking, ever again. It was just an idea though, and it never came to fruition.

Hi. If you look my old posts you’ll find my pics and the pinside who did for me. Great work still working.

#1086 1 year ago

Post #679. Talk to. @strech7. (Pm him )

#1087 1 year ago

Thanks guys! Good to know there is hope. My good friend has made some(3d printed) for another friend and was gonna make me a set. Unfortunately the one that broke somehow took the pluger plastic down with it. So need one of those as well as one of those tabs broke in the fiasco. He is gonna ask his friend to ise one of his for reference. Will post back with results.

#1088 1 year ago

Check my post history, I think I linked the 3d printed versions I designed. Once I got the right material and print settings they've held up fine on location

The center hole doesnt have any markings on it.
The 2 boards in the pics are the ones you want to concentrate on.
Sorry about the blurred pics camera was on the wrong setting.

Thanks for the pix!

That playfield decoder board needs attention in both games. Someone thought that scrambling the wires was going to fix something? Yeah right.
Anyway there's an issue in there somewhere because that handy set of leds on the main board says the same switch is stuck when my meter says they're open... and said so with the wires arranged differently to both boards.

Some different-colored targets would be cool in my Roy, also, but I can see about printing some later.

Thanks for all the help, buddy made me some, i have 2 decent original ones. In case anyone wants originals. Message me if so. Here are my new white ones

#1097 1 year ago

Was this the one I saw for sale in Illinois? Congrats regardless. You can get the manual off IPDB and from there you can read up on how to change various settings and the welcome message. Only suggestion is that the language in the manual is somewhat unclear on how to get into audits vs adjustments and audit is a longer press and adjustments is a very quick tap.

#1098 1 year ago

Game was in Pa. Thanks the button tap may be what I’m missing.

#1099 1 year ago

Enjoy the game! I really love mine and got a ton of love for bringing it to Pinball at the Zoo.

I think I saw this one on FB, but there wasn't a price or anything. I asked if it was for sale, but never heard back. You must have beaten me to it! :)Enjoy the game, it looked beautiful.
