You're killing it with these podcasts Uncle Pinball! Good stuff. I like that you're going a little longer on the episodes. I've got a lot of listening time right now, so it's nice to have a bigger chunk of Uncle Pinball to listen to at once.

PLUS I repackaged 3 episodes into one handy container for those of you looking for longer shows. This is a compilation of episodes 5,6, and 8 with TEN PERCENT NEW MATERIAL!

I've got a spare Trident backglass, but I'm not sure that it's in any better than yours. How bad is yours looking? Mine's got some missing paint in a few spots. Mainly, in the lower corners.

That sounds killer. Mine loses a little more paint every time I take it off
Mebbe we both take pics and compare!

I'll take some pics later.

Also, I saw you were having issues with the Swemmer MPU board in your Excalibur last year, did you ever get that resolved? I've been reading that some of the chips/components on 'em can be flakey. I'm helping a guy with his Night Moves. It's got a Swemmer board in it, and I'm getting some weird behavior that makes me think there's a problem with the NVRAM, or some other component on the board. It doesn't like to boot very easily, and half the time when it does boot, it loses the high scores and settings. If I pull the NVRAM chip, then it'll boot a lot more consistently, but then I still get some weird behavior.

#165 4 months ago

Here she be. Once you really look close, there was a bit more paint loss than I thought. The paint actually seems pretty well adhered though, it's not flaking to the touch or anything. My dad picked it up like 15 years ago, and I think he might have sprayed a sealer on the back, but I'm not sure.

Yeah, that swemmer board just suddenly stopped booting. I pulled svram, but it was still acting weird.
Sometimes it would boot and you could start a game, but then all the coils would start firing in a galloping type sequence. It was almost like the horse noises on the ramp, but with coils pounding away. Not fun. Anyway, I put the stock board back in, and it started working again.

BUT... a few months later, this board started not booting and acting weird. And I notice that the fluorescent tube wasn't lighting either, So I opened it up and reconnected everything from the power supply. Boom, back in action.

Now I might try putting the swemmer back in to see if if was just more sensitive to lower voltage or what!?

#168 4 months ago

Yer BG looks about the same as mine except for your dad's triple thick or whatever. I might just spray mine until I can get a repro. Thanks for the offer Daddio!

Looks like most of Uncle Pinball's People noticed #78 dropped a couple three days ago! Yay for you!
Didn't see the outage until it was almost over; I was in Vegas playing pinball, sneaking up on Tim at the new place, driving construction equipment, see ing Carrot Top.... that kind of shit.

Anyway, for the rest of you, Uncle Pinball has an update on the PHOF move and a little sneak peek at the new place!

More soon. They're having some issues with the county inspectors, and I guess it's just a waiting game now. Uncle Pinball will keep you in the loop!

It’s been awhile since you last broadcasted. You are normally more prolific with your podcast releases. What gives? Too busy playing Mando? (Wink)
