Great video as always, Todd. Seriously, thank you for documenting these shows year after year and taking the time to edit it all together! Amazing job!
Shoutout to the fellow pinsider and York show attendee who called my games awful looking in the comment section.
"Todd, I hope you said something to that guy wearing the Zeppelin shirt. Those three games he had there were awful looking. The Sky Jump had more solder droppings in the bottom of the cabinet than I've ever seen in a game. We owe it to these games to NOT f*ck them up. Otherwise, great video as always."
That's not very nice. Wasn't solder droppings, the morning before driving to York I spent all day waxing the playfield, installing new rubbers, and cleaning the plastics to make sure it played great for everybody and didn't have time to vacuum up the dry wax bits that fell inside of the cabinet as this was all last minute. Unfortunately the only reason the inside was seen was because I spent 5 straight hours at the show attempting to track down a deep problem so people could enjoy it. I put a lot of time into each and every one of them and I know they're not perfect as others' yet but I would appreciate it if you kept your negative remarks to yourself, you know who you are. Every one of those games came to me as heavy projects, especially the Sky Jump where the playfield was covered in an oily substance, and they've all come a long way after many long nights.
It was hell fitting that all into my minivan and unloading it and setting it up both all by myself, but I did it to contribute to the show. I hope some people who got the chance to play them enjoyed them! During the winter I'll be going over them completely and legitimately shopping them out even more. Can't wait to do it again next year. It's so worth the backache.
