    Quoted from pinballlife:

    We are equipped to do this, no problem.
    Terry.

    Make the shirts with the amigos, donate $5 of each purchase to charity. Win-win.

    I'll buy several.

    Hey buddy!

    We gave up

    Hey!

    If it's a galaxy s8, you hit the volume down button and the power button at the same time. They switched it up now that there is no home button. Took me a while to figure it out.

    #603 2 years ago

    The heads are so creepy.

    Seems to be a delay in today's telecast .... I am switching over to the SpaceBalls channel to see what's going on there!

    Hahaha, I'm not as good as posting updates as the amigos. It's a whole lot more fun to watch someone else's updates than post my own.

    #1087 2 years ago
    Quoted from pinballrockstar:

    See? I got this one...
    These things give a crazy shock!
    If i have a roll of sticky metal tape,if i put 2 strips on a lockbar button and put + and negative on one and the other,you get a shock.
    I am thinking of doing a quiz game about insane asylum related stuff and if you give the wrong answer you get zapped!!

    Those are fun. We used to have a stun gun that we took to parties and people always took turns shocking themselves.

    #1637 2 years ago
    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Anyone else find it sad that the pinball amigos are creating cooler layouts than Stern with crude tools and parts yanked from old games, working just one friday night a week? You guys are pretty amazing.

    I've joked that if they got it in their head they were going to build an actual time machine, it would take them 17 Fridays, 3 Dyson vacuums, an old coffin, and 7 pounds of petroleum jelly. And they would be successful.

    Love the ingenuity and desire to just build. This is pure, unadulterated, homebrew pinball.

    Thats cool!...fitting it in a Tesla is impressive as well.

    Yeah holy cow, I thought he would be picking up something small.

    #1911 2 years ago
    Quoted from pinballrockstar:

    Yeah...sometimes wish i collected comic books

    Hahaha, no kidding! I always joke when moving games to shows that I should have gotten into something like stamps or retro consoles.

    At SFGE this past year, one of the guys who brought a bunch of board games for people to play was in awe at how many people brought pinball and arcade games.

    #1976 2 years ago

    I'm definitely in for some shirts, and thanks for supporting charity.

    Cancer sucks!

    #1979 2 years ago
    Quoted from pinballrockstar:

    Yeah let's end that crap..my father just passed away very recently in september 2017,i will never forget him telling me he was so tired,the word "exhausted" didn't capture it..
    He was a blues guitarist and noticed in januari 2017 his left hand was losing coordinates during playing his guitar.
    A few days later he was diagnosed super agressive lung cancer with metastases(5 brain tumors).
    It has been a real heavy year and look forward to 2018.
    Recently Walter Trout survived a liver transplant in the last hour,i followed his entire survival ( his wife had a blog about Walter )and so i decided to put the walter trout album on his coffin.
    Also his stone is in the making and will say:"the blues came calling".
    Sometimes a few words can tell so much about someone.
    So yeah,we are very driven to do something to make a change.

    I'm sorry to hear about your dad, and the other amigo's fathers as well.

    Now we know where you get some of your musical talent from. Blues is such a great genre of music, and it takes someone really talented to play it well.

    #2002 2 years ago

    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.

    Are you guys using Windows? You can use my FAST Playground to test the hardware without MPF.

    You can download it here: https://github.com/Wolfmarsh/FASTPinballPlayground/releases/latest/

    Just put the DLL and EXE in the same folder and run the EXE. Let me know if you run into anything. We gotta get you chatting in slack, I can probably help you with whatever error you are getting there too.

    #2418 1 year ago

    Have you tried my playground app to see if you can light up some LEDs or see some switches registering?

    #2428 1 year ago

    You are taking all the right steps.

    #2438 1 year ago
    Quoted from pinballrockstar:

    A coil needs 48v on one side and the other side is connected to a driver right?

    Yeah that's correct.

    I watched your video, no clue what is going on there, but if you unhook all your cables from it aside from the RJ45 network cables, does the board lights start to work properly? It seems like you have a short in your wiring.

    Here is a better coil diagram:

    #2440 1 year ago

    Can I work with you on getting you into slack? It's so much easier to troubleshoot there.

    #2442 1 year ago
    Quoted from pinballrockstar:

    Ofcourse,problem being my messages didn’t show up..i’ll try again

    Happy Friday amigos!

    Here is a long overdue pic of my wife in her amigos shirt. One of the reasons we bought so much to help support your cause was because my wife is also battling cancer at the moment, hence the lack of hair.

    She is proud to support the amigos.

    Wow, that is super impressive.

    My wife loved the pic from you guys. Made her weekend.

    #4006 1 year ago

    Haha, I love working on older cars. Good job teaching your son. I recently worked on teaching my 9 year old daughter how to do a brake job, but her attention span is so short it was hard to keep her involved for all 4 wheels.

    #4014 1 year ago

    That's great you guys, and good on you for donating the amigos part too.

    The world is a little better for having you guys in it.

    #4017 1 year ago
    Quoted from pinballrockstar:

    You guys experienced it first hand,your life can go upside down in a heartbeat..
    But luckily we are in this life together buddy,we nééd to care for eachother...that’s what makes it all worth while.
