    Quoted from Dee-Bow:

    You havent even mentioned his touring guitarist yet!! she has a great set of .....skills! She can shred! Nita Strauss ! I seen Alice about a year ago and enjoyed the show too! But i diiiid notice a lil bit of lip syncing on some of the songs.. he is almost 70! Oh well, still a great show! &&& faakin deadly u met him !!

    She is a new level of insane man...really...
    Ah! Here she is!

    Alice Cooper is allowed to have some backing vocals, he has put in his time.

    Love your story about getting to meet him, that's pretty cool.

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    That's awesome Baz. Funny how timing is everything.
    In 87 my dad got transferred to a new city. So on spring break he takes us to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada to buy a house. We're staying in a downtown hotel and my older brother and I are wondering around the streets and see a big purple tour bus with Constrictor on the marque in front of a hotel. My bro starts freaking out saying "that's Alice's tour bus! We have to hang out and wait" As a 9 year old I was like who cares, let's go. The hotel has a free pool table. I didn't know he had tickets to go thru my dad's new boss.
    Well not 5 or 10 minutes later a couple guys come out and my brother starts talking to them, then basically the whole band is there. Took pics with my bro and signed some stuff. Let us on the bus for a minute or two. Pretty awesome that they took 5 minutes to accommodate a 15 year old long hair and his little bro. Could have easily blown him off. Made a fan out of me I remember cause of that.

    Awesome story bro,thanks for taking the time to share/post.
    That's the way these guys roll..
    They are supernice ... they know it means the world to you to meet them.

    And timing! Ever seen the Gwyneth Paltrow movie "sliding doors" ?
    (And yes..weird movie..i know.. )
    You all know it for sure but i am telling anyway,the lead role catches a subway train and from that point in the movie you also see the other storyline where she Misses the subway train.
    You can guess the rest..
    One way she shines,other way everything goes south.
    Everytime a time window situation occurs,my girl and i look at eachother and go like:"sliding doors baby... sliding doors..." (we love to be dorky like that)
    Meeting Alice Cooper was one of those obvious short time window moments.
    It was a super crappy movie,but it sticks and you regularly notice it in real life situations.

    Every party i attend from now on,this is my coolest story?
    Alice Cooper knows my name AND his daughter likes my jacket!
    What is your cool story?
    Hard to top that lol.
    I was so happy i did not dweeb out in front of him.
    Cuz that is a big thing...you confidently step up to him,but if your mind goes blur on the spot and you say something stupid,you will hate yourself everytime you think back to that moment.

    It was well deserved by the way,we are the type of couple that always get pushed over by fans that lose their minds..
    Didn't overstay my welcome at his table,acted cool...it is a perfect memory.

    Don't sell yourself short. If I met you I'd be telling all my friends I met one of the pinball amigos and the guy who built the despicable me pinball machine!

    I've met a lot of athletes and musicians but none with a memorable story unless having a beer or smoking a joint with them counts? Lots of after parties back in the day after club shows. Met odor urungus (Dave) from Gwar! That was pretty awesome!

    Thanks man..appreciate that.
    A friend of mine went to gwar once and took the subway so he could get drunk at the show.
    He had no clue they were gonna shoot blood at him and he had to go back home with that same subway/drunk and looking like he'd been run over by a truck
    Will never forget that story.

    So i received the 5 new roms and i am in the process of putting them in their sockets..

    IMG_0970 (resized).JPG

    #2012 2 years ago

    Ha! Found out something!
    I am gonna hotwire u10!
    Yeah yeah,it is not the correct way...but it still doesn't work..
    I have 2 more led flashes than before on the vidiot board ( 4 total ),so i want to keep on diagnosing.
    U10 does not pass the test and on closer inspection i see corrosion on some of the leads on the socket.
    So i am gonna bend these legs up and temporarily solder wires to it,very gently
    I have 10 different colors here.

    BOOM!
    Strange solution in the making!

    IMG_0955 (resized).JPG

    #2014 2 years ago

    The u10 is at the edge of the vidiot board,if it was located at the centre,you would need a lot of very long wires
    Very curious if i add another flash this way!
    Exciting!!

    #2018 2 years ago

    Aaah what a dumbass!
    Now i see what made the socket corrode!
    The leaky battery is right above the socket!!

    Thanks buddy!

    A video on where i am at with Pac

    #2021 2 years ago

    I have 6 flashes now,so the new roms pass the booting test!
    The 7th flash means u13 and u14 passed the test(which they don't).
    1 is corroded,hard to see in the vid,cause i already sanded the legs...hoping i would pass the test.
    But it is severely corroded inbetween the black so i guess it is super bad.
    Hm
    I looked them up on the interweb and they are fast calculating things.
    They might be called 2114's...got that wrong in the vid.

    Send Gerard from the Dutch pinball museum a whats app and he seems to know a dude that has 20 of these.
    I can order them on ali express for a few bucks but i want them to arrive soon,not in 6 weeks!
    Can't find them in my own stock or in any bally pinball.
    They do appear in old commodore 64 computers but i sold mine recently...(31 years ago)...so that's no help either.
    Hmpf
    Waiting game starts again..
    Ah well,made progress!
    6 boot tests passed!
    4 to go!
    The monitor is working real well so it's just the vidiot board that fails to boot.
    Almost there!!

    If you were local I'd give you a few ic''s. Nothing more frustrating than trying to fix something and running out of parts. If I were you I'd replace the sockets as the corossion doesn't stop. It needs to be cleaned up.

    Yeah i am totally replacing the sockets.
    But for now,i need to get it up and running.
    I wanna play!
    And if it runs,i'll redo the boards.
    Driving to an electronics shop today,i want to fix pacman tonight!

    Was there any doubt!?

    #2031 2 years ago

    'Control panel overlay' is the graphic sheet you need to restore the control panel.

    #2032 2 years ago
    Quoted from Dee-Bow:

    Was there any doubt!?

    Yes,and a lot of it! No arcade experience at all
    But these boards are real smart,they test themselves..pinball boards also have their led flash diagnosis.
    But never had to dig into it,mostly with a wpc you encounter common problems and so are the solutions..

    Quoted from swillie:

    Thanks! Found it right away!
    So it is not called a lock bar hahaha! Silly me...

    So as i was shopping with my girl on monday(when i met Alice Cooper) i noticed this tee.
    I took a pic for you guys but forgot to post it.
    Could have sworn the print on it says: " asbesto dust"

    After looking at the label,I realised the brand name is "ashes to dust "

    Nobody at the factory adressed that? Really?!

    Hahaha!

    I'm goin to see Gwar on Sunday for about the 60th time. I've met them all many of times and such a great group of guys dedicated to their fans.I have a picture of me wearing part of their costumes and Oderous Urungus sitting in my car rocking to my stereo.they also killed my wife on stage and fed her to their maggot then we went to the bar and back to their hotel to party.I also made a pipe for their manager Sleazy P. Martini that looked just like him.

    Hmm...we are thinking about an alien head,talking to you when you hit the captive ball...after several shots he warns you that he will abduct you to his planet.
    So a big talking alien head in the inner bend of the ramp.
    If i cut the bracket,we might be able to install it right where it should be!
