    Interested in used super chexx. I saw Blitzburgh99 might be selling one. I am in central pa, travel a bit to Western pa, NJ, DC, central Connecticut so would be willing to pick up.

    Quoted from SeaLawyer:

    Yeh, even if it was just the "Heeeee shoots, he scores" line and a few other randomized goal clips that activate with the goal buzzer, that'd be awesome. What you're describing might require some kind of metal or sensor in the puck, don't you think? Unless I re-did the playfield with a one-way mirror that sensors could see through... Hmmm... I'd LOVE to do even more (like some sort of on-the-fly, spliced-clip play calling, similar to what the AI does in EA sports NHL games). SO MANY possibilities.

    The reed switches worked great for the goal light. I don't see why they wouldn't work if you choose to mount them around the playfield. Either way you'd need them for the goal sensor for you're "heeee shoots, he scores". I thought about just created a longer clip with silent sections to just play, but it would always play in the same order and that could get pretty old. Thus my idea for some strategically placed sensors under the play field. Just make sure they are not somewhere where your likely to go back and fourth over it. I might try attaching one to each goalie. That way there could be save callouts, in addition to the "ohhh, ahhh". It will just be fun to test out some different stuff and see what works.

    Quoted from SeaLawyer:

    I can’t believe they’d post videos without audio. Honestly, the videos turned me completely off of upgrading. I’m quite certain if you order an NHL team-specific game, the animations are still the generic players. I thought the animations were cheesy. Even if the sound were AMAZING, it’s not worth it. I could add my own sound clips if I REALLY wanted to, for not that much money. I also saw where someone added their own JUMBOTRON. I’ll just continue modding mine, rather than sink a bunch of money into a new one with cheesy features. JMHO.

    Yeah I wouldn’t buy a new one just to get that upgrade but it beats the pants off the older score board. It’s worth 200 but not worth a trade in. Cheesy is a bit overkill. It’s much improved looking

    Still waiting on a few parts, but I'm starting to create some goal horns. The first is just the 3.5 second horn. The others are the horn plus a bit of music. I figured the music would work both as a celebration song and face off song. After about 20 seconds it fades out. Let me know if you have some suggestions for other songs. They are pretty easy to do.

    Goal Horn (Horn Only):

    PS: Anyone know the title of that "Oiler's Song"?

    That is a very nice example of a Super Chexx and it should sell at the price that you listed. GLWTS.

    I ordered our Super Chexx pro two weeks ago and was told three weeks, as they were already way behind....I'm not sure when I will be able to post pics or videos, on boxing etc. As like the previous poster it's a Christmas gift for the family...

    Should be here next week will try and get some unboxing ones and then lock it up till Christmas. I got the leafs versus Canadians.

    For those buying interested in what folks are getting.

    #908 4 years ago

    Good to hear Requis!

    I ordered mine last week. Was told birthdate was on 11/27 and they should ship on 12/1. Same thing, x-mas present for the boys (and me of course). I did leafs vs north stars. Grew up on a cx-83...one of the first couple hundred models. Still in service at my folks place in Lake George. I was supposed to inherit it and bring it to my new house...but it won't fit into basement. So...after some contract disputes with wife...my staff got the go ahead to order new Pro model. Waiting for it like a four year old with Santa Claus. Once it arrives...gonna figure out what to customize...looks like two sizes of scoreboards are prime logo opps and of course finding jersey numbers. I'm in Westchester County, NY...so hopefully I can find another bubble savant to play with while I groom the wee ones.

    Keep me posted on delivery and set up!

    #909 4 years ago

    Very curious to get some feedback from true Super Chexx aficianados on the new design....eagerly waiting everyone to get their new games too!

    #910 4 years ago

    Ordered mine 10/30/17 and they sent an invoice saying it will ship 11/16/17!! Trying to get it by thanksgiving!! Have 60 people coming for thanksgiving. Sure hope there are know hiccups!?!?

    #911 4 years ago

    That's awesome! Not sure I have the will power to tuck it away till Christmas...lol...when I say family I really mean me... but sure you guys already saw through that. I suspect my wife did to, as she specifically stated it doesn't come out of the box until Christmas Eve and then only for me to put a bow on it for when the boys wake up.... I maybe able to comment on how well packaged it is lol...I bought extra basic player sets and will have them painted team USA and Team Canada as well...at least then when my American friends and family show up we can put down a real challenge.

    Just curious did you pay for the centre ice logo of your home team...I had to just because, and was wondering who wouldn't when your in for that kind of money isn't that like leaving icing on the cake? Seemed like a silly option but then again maybe the logo doesn't matter...

    #912 4 years ago

    Good Luck hope it happens for you...wow 60 people?.. How do you cook for that many, hope your catering..

    Most I have ever done was 16 and I was bagged by the end of the night...what a treat for your guests they get to eat and play...do you have room for 5 more, your new Canadian cousins from Toronto are interested in joining you lol...adding my daughter doesn't eat much and washes dishes.

    Cheers,

    Too bad the game is a few thousand miles away. I am looking for one in New England.

    #914 4 years ago

    I did request maple leaf centre ice logo. What I didn’t do and wish I did was order extra two sets of players to send out for custom. 60 people is nuts. Good luck with that one. My plan is to somehow keep myself from opening boxes until a few days before Xmas. Then put it together in garage and have Neighbor walk it in with me xmas eve to front room. My problem is my basement isn’t ready for the game. So it stays in “foyer” until that happens. Happy boys but wife isn’t too happ with that decoration.

    What is best sticker size
    For jersey? Trying to find North Star color mini numbers until I send them out for custom. Need a temp fix.

    Anyone who gets pro delivered soon please share Thanks.

    Well done! Especially like "Joker and the Thief" and "Kernkraft 400". What about "7 Nation Army"? What will actually play the sound? Something wired into the same speakers?

    New to the forum, though interested in picking up a Chexx/Super Chexx. Khabbi, yours still available? Do you have more pics/details? And I'm near Chicago, so would it be possible at all to have it shipped?

    I haven't quite decided. Probably going to use an external speaker, but I'm seriously considering just redoing all of the game sounds. I just don't really think the crowd noise, ohhs and ahhs, or national anthem is worth keeping. With nine inputs on the board I'd eventually like to try to replace everything. Is there a good version of Seven Nation Army with the chants somewhere?

    I swear one was on CL in/near Chicago or Madison recently. Super Chexx about ~$1800

    Chexx '83 bases are so darn wide and I couldn't get mine down the stairs of my bro-in-laws. PIA!

    ... so I cut it in half! Added a 38" folding metal, supported by wood, not unlike the new bases. Only have to unscrew 4 bolts on each side and disconnect the one speaker to split.

    That is a very nice DIY mod with the split base. I have a split base which was performed at the ICE factory on a Super Chexx game that I purchased in September of 2014.

    Your split base mod is basically identical to my split base which was done at the factory by ICE. You really did a good job on this split base mod.

    I requested a pdf of Manual just for
    Reading material while I wait. They are waiting approval. So I imagine those initial machines still haven’t gone out. However ,he indicated my delivery date was moved a week closer. They are ahead of schedule. So...I got that going for me.

    #922 4 years ago

    Looks like first machine has landed for someone...so they are on the way.

    #923 4 years ago

    The guy is uploading some vids right now. Just passing them along here

    #924 4 years ago

    Albeit the scoreboard and LED lighting adds to the game and is neat it's not enough to make me want to sell my existing game and purchase a new one!

    Thanks for posting the videos cherryandblue !!

    PS - MN vs MN

    #925 4 years ago

    Mez. You wouldn’t happen to be mez big dylan fan? No problem on vids. I’ve been waiting to see first sound glimpses. I did order the new one. Ironically northstars on the road against leafs.

    No must be someone else. Plus I have it as mesz not mez!

    Yeah me too! Great to see ICE put some changes into this game instead of the norm! I don't think it will be long before someone finds a way to add video to the scoreboard and what not!

    Quoted from cherryandblue:

    I did order the new one.

    Congrats on the machine and let us know when the reveal party is!!!

    Quoted from cherryandblue:

    Why not the North Stars vs Penguins ....... what too soon????

    #927 4 years ago

    I actually wanted leafs vs habs or leafs vs nordiques. But color matchups didn’t work. So I went with my favorite US team of 80’s. I may consider buying extra sets of basic Chexx teams and sending them out to someone here for custom and of course , the late 80’s penguins are an option. I’m a total 80’s hockey nut.

    #928 4 years ago

    Did they give you a ship date? Mine was oringally 12/1. But they moved it to 11/27.

    #929 4 years ago

    The timer is the most appealing thing to me. I hate that its a guessing game how much time is left in a game.....at least on mine it is. I dont have SOG either....lucky

    I love this LCD screen, is someone selling this to add to an older super chex bubble hockey because I would so buy it..

    #931 4 years ago

    It would be great to hear the Canadian national anthem.

    I wonder how difficult (or easy) it would be to swap videos? Make some cool custom videos.

    #932 4 years ago

    It would be cool to develop an LED kit that has spots for custom video and audio files. That way if people wanted to customize things for a specific team they could do that.

    #933 4 years ago

    Hello All,

    My game came in today Here are two links, looks like they have been posted above.

    Very happy with the game, the sound is great.. ICE forgot to stick the NHL sticker on the base, but they are sending it via mail in a day or two.

    #934 4 years ago

    Setup was very easy, and you can change the settings using the four buttons on the side. Sound during the game, sound when not playing, National anthem, period length etc.. etc... My order date was 10/26/2017 Came in today 11/15/2017 2pm CST Will post more videos later via Youtube linked here.

    #935 4 years ago

    Chris, looks great. And thanks for sharing. Exactly what I’ve been anticipating while I await my bubble. As you can see , hope you don’t mind, I had posted your clips before you posted. Eagerly await more. One things for sure the guys never complain about ice time. Enjoy. Curious what model number they start at? You don’t have to give yours but do they start at 0?

    And did it come with manual ? They don’t have an electronic version yet they said they were waiting approval. But they had to send them out with the machines right ?

    Here are two more videos I posted on YouTube:

    A: I'll look tonight. ICE told me it was the 1st one to ship.

    A: Yes, a color multi-page manual, and extra puck, some tools and extra screws.

    Chris, first of all thanks for posting! If you wouldn't mind, would you post some pictures of the board inside the game? Would be interested to see what it looks like in comparison to the older version! Wondering if it would be possible to get a new board and scoreboard and swap them out in an existing game!

    I second that request. Previous replacement boards complete were $450 if I recall correctly.

    #941 4 years ago

    I hope the boo button can short circuit the national anthem, or there is a setting to just play a short portion of the beginning. That would get annoying listening to entire anthem every game. Starting to wonder if I should just keep what I’ve got....

    #942 4 years ago

    Here are couple pictures of the board
    The national anthem can be bypassed by hitting the boo button
    It’s also pretty easy to change from United States national anthem to the Canadian national anthem, this is done using the selection control buttons on the outside of the stand/base

    Would you post a video of the Canadian national anthem playing, please?

    #946 4 years ago

    Q: we're speaking of the board inside the game with the electronics (CPU) on it!
    A: I'll take a photo of it this weekend, when we move it down to our basement. Based on photos of the old board it looks like a whole new board.. Not a ROM chip..

    Q: Would you post a video of the Canadian national anthem playing, please?
    A: Yes,.. I'll do that in the next few days. It looks like it can play the Canadian national anthem in both English and French and the Russian anthem as well.

    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    I think we are all hoping that it’s just a different ROM chip and a new scoreboard to modify our older units....

    It shouldn't be. The old board would not be able to push the video.

    I suppose you could buy the board and new score board and get it working but you'll be at like $1000 bucks.... which...not sure is worth it.

    #948 4 years ago
