    See that screw in front / just to the left of the new secret target (circled in red here)? I suspect the rim on that screw is going to beat up the game's pinballs pretty quickly. How's about we change that screw for one of the tall posts like what is boxed in green here. One without the rubber installed in the middle though - don't want it to block the secret shot.

    I swear to you, reading your Friday points is one of the most enjoyable and relaxing things I get to do each week. We've been doing this 'together' for so long, I feel like we are best friends and I know you well . . . as if I am there at your house each week and being a part of this. I would give ANYTHING if you were my neighbor. What a fun time we would have. You know what I think I would enjoy the most? Swapping stories about our language experiences. It would fascinate me to know more and more about HOW you picked up English so well, and how you know so much slang and can write sentences very much like we would do here in America. It fascinates me as to how you have achieved this skill. The second thing I believe I would enjoy is laughing with you. You have a very witty sense of humor and again, it's enjoyable to see how your joking skills mirrors OUR joking skills here. You might be thousands of miles away and speak another language but your brain is right in step with ours here. I'm getting really old, but I would LOVE to be able to make another trip to Europe and meet you guys. Just sit around with you there and be amigos with you! The best to you all!

    Hey amigo Mike!
    Thanks for the kind words,it warms our hearts to hear that,i sincerely mean that.
    It was our idea from the start to create a topic in which we “take everybody along for the ride” .
    We are in no way good engineers,we just want to build something cool and have fun along the way and boy we do!
    Lot’s of guys out there building stuff but most of them are too serious and anal about things...face it...it’s never ever gonna be a smooth playing Williams if you build it yourself...
    Amigo rule number one: don’t take the project too serious,before you know it,15 years pass by and you are married to your creation
    If Crazy Mansion catches fire and burns down,we’ll just collect the screws out of the ashes and build a new machine with them
    It’s all about having fun man.
    Party on!

    As you know we have this monster mech over here and yesterday i found out it is not working the way i want to....

    #9626 39 days ago

    Everybtime a ball drains from the lower playfield,it goes into the ball lock area...

    8136ECDD-908C-40D0-B128-FAED9AD84383 (resized).jpeg
    #9627 39 days ago

    Later in the build we added this sluice box so the trapdoor in the main ramp feeds the same mech and the ball gets kicked up to the playfield again..
    Wait,i’ll take it out,just a sec..

    There it is...

    2BDD3598-D5A7-4F62-840C-E6C943F91E54 (resized).jpeg
    #9629 39 days ago

    This is the ball lock area in the mech...there’s 2 switches to register the locks and the blue coil releases the balls when pulsed/activated.

    D1D4A40E-84E9-4AFD-9171-F64725BFB4B2 (resized).jpeg
    #9630 39 days ago

    Since every ball from the lower playfield passes this area,it is hard to keep track of the balls over here...if a ball locks,it needs to be registered as a lock and if a ball passes,the coil needs to be programmed in such a way that it releases one ball if a passing ball enters the lock.
    Very very complicated..
    Note the spring i installed to keep the coil in active position..

    #9634 39 days ago

    The sluice box has only one switch,we need three over here plus the blue coil needs to be relocated too so the multiball will be fed from the trapdoor!

    #9643 39 days ago

    An amigo clone elixer cabinet,we just got the idea in the alley,the videos are gonna be hilarious.
    We are gonna use an app that splits you in 2 so we get a clone.
    We figured in a multiball you get multiple balls so the cloning elixer made sense!?
