Man has this thread gotten off track!
this is a fun thread. Everybody just posts random pictures and says silly things!
The barn door only stayed open as long as it was able run...or run until cow kept rambling over
I‘m rather surprised at all the negativity to the idea of swappable playfields. I guess nobody else has space problems in their game room.
So much of a pinball game would not have to be bought new - cabinet, power supply, speakers, electronic hardware (assuming no node boards), display, etc. Imagine having say four such cabinets and seven or eight playfields. Put in the playfield with a clever mechanism, plug in the game specific flash drive and off you go.
It‘s exactly what this hobby needs.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
I love how people read something like this and then say:
"I can't believe you wouldn't be into a swappable playfield! It makes so much sense! Give me one reason it's a bad idea!!!"
Actually I‘m kind of still waiting for somebody to give a good reason. All I‘m reading is that people wouldn‘t want it.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
Yeah you are right. Not a single good reason has been posted stating why it's a bad idea and has consistently failed whenever tried for the past 45 years.
These pinball companies are morons! Been leaving money on the table since Nixon was president!
If you say so !
Grammar and spelling mistakes are an indication that people can‘t be bothered to proofread their posts.
I‘d say a thorough discussion of the Pinside Top 100 is the best way now to keep this thread afloat.
Quoted from Tranquilize:
Like it or not, the top 100 is the most popular part of pinside, and I felt that before the model
Quoted from flynnibus:
And “most popular part of pinsidde”? I can’t think of anyone I know that uses it at all
The top 10 is for sure the first thing that brought me to pinside when I got into pinball. I'd estimate it was at least a year after before I "discovered" the forum and a lot longer after that before I started reading the forum regularly (and even posting).
I think the top100 is probably more accurate than people give it credit for. But mostly it's fun. Like anything in internet, you have to decide for yourself what to take seriously and what not.
Quoted from dc2010:
In cars for example, modern cars have water based
to my knowledge, no large series car or truck uses water-based clears for exterior. There may be a few aftermarket water-based products.
My theory would be the clearcoat is too thick. This could make the paint more susceptible to cracking under mechanical load.
