I joined the club 8 years ago. I just didn't know there was a club back then. Looks like there a good representation of WH2O around Buffalo, NY.
Quoted from PinDeLaPin:
Is there any clear way to know if the game is a reimport? Some kind of markings or do they put an import stamp on the machine somewhere? Otherwise how would someone know if they were buy a machine that was reimported? Thks
I have a plaque on mine from japan. From what I heard, it went from the US, to Germany, to Japan, and then Canada. I bought it outside of Toronto and brought it back to the US.
Quoted from GCS2000:
So this game is becoming a huge pain to get now.
Found one made a deal at asking price and asked for details to arrange pick up (4600). An hour later guy goes its sold - WTF
Found another one appeared to be a really good deal (4000). Made a deal called the shipper and then get a message this AM says No deal - what the heck
Have one other on the line appears to be really good shape (best one so far), local to me (which is nice) but also pricey and seller is fixed on price. Can't blame him really. He doesn't need the money, or the space and isn't desperate to sell etc so why let go for a deal. (close to 6k)
Just surprised at how this game has dried up on the sales floor (and how high its price has gotten)
Have to keep searching, searching ...
It's unreal how much they've gone up. My machine was 1800 in 07 and i thought it was a lot at the time. Beautiful condition too.
I just had this exact question about a whirlwind. The cab needs some work on the front of the head. I'll have to get some paint made to fix it up.
Quoted from Arcade:
I certainly will.
I know from another thread that there is some guy that is really good with sound that is doing a completely new sound package for this game but he just can never seem to find the time required to complete it.
We're all hoping for that.
With the announcement of the pinsound one, i'm going to hold off until the re-orchestration gets completed and then buy it all at once. But i'm in no hurry
Quoted from Lermods:
where is the info on the pinsound shakers? how is it powered and what triggers it? what's the price on it shipped to the US?
one of the benefits of the Pinshaker is it does not draw power from the game.
At that price i'll just go carve some rocks, drill some holes in them and call it a day.
Usually you can't visually see anything wrong with a chip, but a crack is never good.
Quoted from sataneatscheese:
If those are regular LEDs take them out immediately. They can and will melt, if not catch on fire.
Isn't that almost a right of passage for a whitewater owner? I did the same thing 9 years ago when cointaker recommended a set of led's for the topper. I told them that the leds pretty much started on fire. They refunded me for the bulbs and updated their kit offering.
Quoted from Gnatty:
Translucent yellow pop bodies really added more lighting in that dark boulder garden
Hey, I like that! Now that I've gotten my feet wet going through a couple of other games top to bottom, I may do the same with my Whitewater. It could use some fixes and cleanup.
I like the ceiling modification too. I have to do that in my dad's basement for whirlwind.
