I bought a very beautiful Tommy yesterday, got it finally home (which was kind of an adventure itself), and then noticed it has a shaker motor ?! Cabinet shakes when you start a game and go for a skillshot.
I had a Tommy about 10 years ago and didn't remember that having a shaker.. just thought I forgot about it or maybe had disconnected it then.
But now I searched a bit on rgp and it doesn't seem all had them ? Some posts say Tommy had the driver board present but no shaker installed, other posts say the software just doesn't support it ?
But on my machine it's installed and works - I think it activates together with the propellors but have to check more tonight (can't get into the settings - coindoor buttons don't work..)
It is also a real DE shaker motor, not a custom made one as far as I can see.
The game did come a long time ago from someone in the Netherlands who restored pins (it's further still in fantastic condition) so it's possible it was added by him.. but could it be default also ?
It's a regular game, made for The Netherlands, not a prototype with 6 popbumpers or something else special as far as I could see.
Does anyone have more info about Tommy and a shaker ? Could it have been factory ?
Do other people also have one installed ?
