Take a video of gameplay so we can hear what's going on.

#54 7 months ago

it literally is the constant sound of a speaker working without nothing coming out. you hear static but no sound.did all sound rom tests and not one worked

#55 7 months ago

there is absolutely no corrosion on any sound roms as well

#56 7 months ago

Good choice. Own my 3rd and best South Park. It's a fun game for guests who get quite a laugh from it. Hook....uuh....well....that game was just crap. Couldn't get rid of It fast enough.

then you have experience with sp.what is going on with my sound

Have you tried reseating the cables? Are you sure the cables or in the right pins on the header and not misplaced by one. You can't tell what the other person before you did. Might want to make sure all connections are accurate.

#59 7 months ago

South Park gets a lot of attention in both a private and public setting. Hook is a game I want to spend more time on.
thanks

As others have said...check the cables. With the game off, re-seat the ROMS for sound. Did you mention if you get any sound from the speakers? Does the game make the loud "clunk" sound at power up?

#64 7 months ago

yes and i just ordered a new one in case

Southpark is pretty bad, but Hook is terrible.

#66 6 months ago

For anyone bad mouthing hook have you played with with the new www.pinballcode.com on it? It transforms the game and makes it so much better.

#67 6 months ago

I absolutely hated the HUGE sink holes in south park.

#68 6 months ago

Another example of a "what do I do?"...I ignored anything that disagreed and did exactly what I planned to do anyway Pinside thread. I am really not saying there is anything wrong with that; I've done it myself.

I keep hearing about this code but until it does anything to fix the terrible layout and "flow" it just isn't gonna make a difference. I've played the wondrous new code - all it does it make it more palatable for tournament play, but it's still an awful game. It certainly doesn't help make it any more fun.

You must not like money. That's an easy flip at $1500.

not true i completely understand and took in all fsctors and absolutely came out on top as of right now i have 600 bucks in a mint south park with sound problems and that is fine with me bc i will definitely fix it easily i hope but still 600 in a 2600-3000 dollar game

How do you have $600 in the deal? Is that what you valued your Hook at? Then why did you ask me to pay you $2500? I would have gladly paid you $1000 for the Hook. Actually, since I don't like to rip people off, I would have paid you $2300 for the Hook. Your Hook was worth over two grand and that crap South Park (definitely NOT mint) was worth less than two grand. You lost on this deal money-wise but if you wanted a fixer-upper South Park, you should be happy.

dude i dont understand your attitude towards me.all i did was ask for opinions and i feel i got awesome responses.and this south cleaned up beautiful and is a creampuff playfield.yeah the cabinet has some wear nothing i cant fix though.the only problem im really having is diagnosing the sound and thats bc the guy lied to me before i did the deal or i would have never done it.but his karma will come around

#73 6 months ago

no my hook was never valued at 600.i would never ever screw over anyone.i joined this page to help people and have never really needed help until this deal and all this drama.dont need it in my life.

#74 6 months ago

I don't believe in karma and I only asked how you calculated that you have "$600" into this South Park. I didn't mean to stress you out. It's only an online forum. I never meant to say that you "screw(ed)...anyone". I think you got screwed. That sucks but it happens. You only got "screwed" for a few hundred bucks. I've been screwed for thousands so it could be worse. Don't ever let emotions affect your dealings.

I might be missing something here but I interpreted it as he added $600 to the deal plus his Hook. He thinks that South Park in mint condition is worth around $2,600 to $3,000 which doesn't sound that far off.

no i didnt add 600 to the deal. i paid 600 for the hook from someone awhile back before the prices went crazy last year.but yeah you are right

Unfortunately the sp in question is no where near mint.... cab is rough, no sound, playfield wear at inlane drops , broken plastics, wear at scoops and im sure some other stuff.

#78 6 months ago

true but look at it after just one application of novus 1. i feel happy and just send the boards to a true professional for a complete rebuilr for a great price. im definitely satisfied

I hope your first mod will be a LCD ColorDMD. I think the HiRes for South Park is a perfect fit with this cartoon theme pin. Enjoy watching the video preview on this page.
