Too late! I already listened to the original. Trying to piece it all together kept me on my toes! I had to really pay attention toward the end.

Yeah, it was a real bear to piece back together properly lol.

Anybody got a better top 10 sport themed pinball list they wanna share?

#71 4 years ago

Don't know if I'd say better, but some other thoughts. Nitro Ground Shaker if set up hard can be pretty entertaining. I think one of you honorably mentioned Grand Prix (I hope meaning the Williams 1976 one, if not then that's the one *I* mean), I'd have probably stuck it in my Top 10 proper.

Yeah, def the Williams Grand Prix EM. Love the double spinner and double bonus ladders.

Buzzer, disqualified! Two people fighting are doing just that, fighting...not sporting.

New episode dropped!!!

On this week's episode, Practical Steve joins us to discuss his love of all things pinball and his journey into the hobby. We discuss the news of the day and highlight some upcoming shows: Expo, White Rose Gameroom Show, and the Houston Arcade Expo. We also get sentimental and review a beloved classic, Williams Rollergames. We learn that both Spencer and Practical Steve are willing to flip flop when passionately pushed for answers during our first installment of "Fact or Fantasy" and we wrap up with a "Top 10" reveal of some of our most loved EM titles.

Concur, it's one of the best implementations of a on-air podcast game I think I've heard.

#84 4 years ago

Listened to about half of it so far... feels amazingly similar to league nite, just while driving and not playing pin, lol.

Yeah, that's exactly the tone Spencer has always aimed for. Just a group of folks talking about what they love and arguing over the silliest little things.

So nice enjoy it twice!

#92 3 years ago

It's the Justin episode so I dunno... once might be enough. Hahahaha, loveyameanit.

#93 3 years ago
Quoted from Cheddar:

So nice enjoy it twice!

I did! Wasn't even sure it was a repeat until the pinball outside on the balcony/move pool table/spiral staircase story came on. If I had seen that staircase...
Me: Does the machine have to come down that staircase?
Owner: Yes
Me: No thanks. Bye.

It never gets to that point anyway, I ask about location/stairs etc. before I bother going to inspect it.

Do ya'll record via Zencastr?

#96 3 years ago
Quoted from DennisK:

Do ya'll record via Zencastr?

Yes. I'm currently looking for other programs.
Zencastr having issues with sync.

#97 3 years ago

Yeah, I had to switch off due to the sync. They did release a newsletter saying it relates to system resources. Supposedly, if EVERYONE uses the latest version of Chrome, then the recording gets separate resources from the rest of the work (the displays, waveforms, etc.). But everyone in the session must use Chrome, no other browser currently supports whatever feature they are exploiting.

A couple other suggestions (both accessible in the upper-right, what looks like a gear with a speaker in it):

If anyone is being distracted because they hear their own voice, they can go under there and disable the Monitor option.

Second, if you notice that the audio seems to fade out due to multiple people talking, this is due to echo cancellation. Go in and turn that off also (shouldn't need it if wearing headsets to stop audio bleed back into the mics), and you'll get a lot cleaner audio when everyone talks at once.

Main alternative I've used is just Skype with a recording tool. I don't like it nearly as much, Zencastr does seem to get better audio balance out of the gate, but that sync issue is a killer (it did seem much better when I did the latest episode).

Anyway, just some thoughts. Enjoyed the show!

Yes! Thank you for the tips. I'm going to experiment with some options soon.
