That game is friggin beautiful!! And the EM version at that...whoever did it did an awesome job on it. That is the CF that I would want. #jealous

#4007 4 years ago

That Captain looks just like I remember when they first showed up on route. I played a lot of that machine when I was a teen. Probably because it was the easiest game ever to win a replay and my pockets were short on change.

Congrats!

I've learned to love that game and want one bad. I had the chance to buy a beater but I just couldn't over pay for it. Maybe I should contact that guy again and see if he's come down.

Great looking FH!

It was nice to begin with but had some issues... just got it back together and man its stunning and plays very fast and difficult. Its probably the most difficult game i own at the moment due to the speed and how i have it set up.

Don't see anything wrong with whatever rom version someone wants to run. Courious, what did you tweek in the game?

Quoted from mollyspub:

The one in it has lots of bugs and the newer revisions fixes the bugs and make the game better to play . Also alot more ajustments and options in menu on the newer roms. There is also more light shows and extra rudy things on the home rom. Game had a bunch of lose posts, broken solder joints, misran wires and a broken trough kicker to start. There were alot of things just not in correct spots and needed alot of switch adjustments.

The exposure in the room is not bad, so there will never be direct sunlight, just a lot of ambient light shining through. Will that fade the cab? I will prob move this into the darker arcade soon, but love it here.

Hi all just picked up Bride of pinbot my 2nd pinball machine

I wasn't really looking for it but it come up for a really cheap price.... i now know why on one of the ramps the sensor flip is snapped off the ramp didn't even see it when i picked up plus a few other things that need a touch up

If anyone could point me in the right place to fix that ramp thing would be great i was thinking of just cutting and melting some more acrylic then pre drilling some holes and fitting it again might work

I would like to do a full resto on this so if anyone has a PDF of the art work PM me and ill be happy to donate or paypal you some coin for the files thanks

Is it the cabinet art or playfield? I think that one had a little insert damage. I don't know if you can get an insert decal set for it or if you'd have to make your own. Cabinet decals are available for it.
