Veza War had:
Coffee Mat style sound circuitry.

#402 67 days ago

Picked up a Fascination Circa 1933. Doesn't boot and not getting the 5 volts to the MPU. Gonna have to rebuild or change the power supply.

Congrats on a very cool looking machine. Same color scheme as Centaur!

Very Nice!
Is there a cool story to go with the find, or just collector to collector?

Has anyone found good replacement fake wood laminate for these machines? Eros 1 has this dark burlwood I can’t for the life of me find

Picked this up today. Unfortunately it will need to be wall art or a coffee table as it has none of the boards and these are not available. Great looking playfield and those drop targets!! Maybe someone will need the playfield one day for a restore so happy to have it for now.

That pretty cool!
If everything is there except the boards please keep it intact, obviously you never know when something will pop up!
If you ever need to make room sell it to someone else who can hold onto it.

Yeah i grabbed it to preserve it. If someone contacts me in the future and i can help them i will. The playfield was just too nice to pass up even just being a lighted coffee table.

It isn’t a super complex table so you could probably use an Arduino Mega to control it. If it was like the machine I had I was going to do that and trim Jamma finger boards to plug into the original connectors. It could be done without hacks.

Just leave it as a table for now!
I’m pretty sure someone was remaking the Allied Leisure/Game Plan circuit boards. It was just not very easy to find, and a poor web presence.

Does it have the four side legs so that you can make it a standup?

Quoted from vec-tor:

Nope. But im thinking about installing some caster wheels underneath to make it a movable table.

Found it in a Barn find

I've heard someone is in the process on making a new MPU.

They have been in that "process" for about 4 years I think

anyone need any parts off of a night moves?

#418 30 days ago
Quoted from the96stang:

Possibly. I can look this evening. What spares do you have?

#419 30 days ago

But just about everything except the playfield and cabinet. I picked up one today that was Loaded with mouse

#420 30 days ago
Quoted from the96stang:

Definitely. Nothing on mine is broken, but I sure wouldn't mind having extra plastics, switches, whatever. Let me know when you take it apart.

#421 29 days ago

The gentleman with the boardless Star Shooter has put it up for dale in the marketplace for $200

Yep. I did. Had some other things come in and it cant stay in the house. Open to trading for other items.

Hey gang,

Wow....I had no idea that there was a club for cocktail pins.

Couldn't see another Hearts Spade pictured in this thread... so here you go.

I found this absolute gem around 3 years ago, advertised as not working, so I just shelved it for a rainy day project.

After receiving some advice from a mate with a cocktail, then pulling out the boards, re-seating the chips and giving the connectors a really good clean, BINGO! She fired up first go. A bit more tinkering and we're about 95% there.

Playfield strip, Mills wax, Novus 1 on plastics and fresh white rubbers. It's not NIB but is pretty good for her age and she's beginning to sparkle like new again.

What drew me to this machine to begin with was the stunning art deco theme, which a few of the LAI cocktails seem to based on.

I've decided to leave the incandescent bulbs in for now and used traditional white rubbers, as I think modernising this playfield wouldn't go well with the theme, but we'll see.

Cheers,
Pinball Syd

Too bad, my buddy from Asheville just came for a visit two weeks ago. I would have had him bring this to me.

#426 28 days ago

I just picked one of these up a few weeks ago. I’ll look it over tonight and see.

Have him grab it for the next visit

#429 26 days ago

I am picking up a Circa 1933 in the next few days. However, I would like to NOT have to borrow a truck. Does the cabinet separate on these? Base from the playfield? If so, I can fit it in my wagon.

Not easily.

#431 25 days ago

When I sold my Eros 1 the guy picked it up in a Fiat 500. It fit but he couldn’t close the hatch.

#432 25 days ago

Yea, that's probably not going to work. I can BARELY fit a 80's bally in the car. The cocktail has to be taller than the body of an early bally.
I'll just have to rent/borrow a truck. Or pay for delivery.

Is 1200 an okay deal on a very pretty Night Moves?

I'm not sure about the price but I can say that the Night Movesis a really cool little machine. A lot going on for its size. The music grows on you and it plays really well. I was surprised by it in a good way.

Quoted from alexmogil:

That seems to be the new retail price they’re going for. I feel lucky to have gotten mine for relatively cheap.
They seem to be showing up less often
People are starting to appreciate them.

I paid 1000 for mine. I enjoyed it for the year i had it. Good price if its in good shape and has battery replaced.

After 2 years my Night Moves has SOUND!!!!
Finally!
I bought all the parts off of the96stang and swapped in the display and sound board and swapped some cracked plastics!
My plastics are actually super nice and unfaded, the ones off his parts game are very yellowed, but it’ll have to do.

If anyone needs parts, I can post a picture within a day or two, you can also DM me, because I won’t need all of this!

I’m so happy to finally enjoy the full experience of Night Moves!!

#441 6 days ago
