Well, I just had a buyer who drove up -10- hours to buy a game from me. He paid me a deposit to lock it in, he scheduled well In advance, he brought his kid with him.
I have the game on. We play a couple rounds. Suddenly, it resets. Then it locks. I have not touched this game in weeks, other than to play a couple of balls on it. We spend 3 hours trying to troubleshoot. Probably the CPU board. He sees some corrosion on the board, could be that, could be some bad pins. Wtf. The game has literally never had this problem once before, now it’s flipping out. I know I can fix it so I don’t want to budge much on the price, and who would want to buy a non-working game?
With heavy heart, they decide to leave it. I don’t blame them - I have never felt like a bigger jerk; I’ve just wasted 2 days of their life. Luckily they are gentlemen about it. I guess it’s bound to happen some time. What a shitshow.
