Now that I have a few solenoids firing, and I've talked to a lot of people locally about it, I figure it's time to make a thread with some info about my build. First, I have to give major credit to ThatOneDude for guiding my through this process. Seriously, he held my hand every step of the way and let me build most of this at his wonderland of pinball parts garage. I entered into this with nearly no experience in building or even owning a pin, carpentry, electrical work or programming. And, after a year of working on this, no major injuries or expensive disasters have occurred.
So, a couple of years ago I got a playfield (not in great shape) for a Demolition Man and a few parts. I had been thinking it was a travesty that no Wu Tang pin existed and I wanted one. It's sad there isn't a hip hop pin yet, and what has better theme and imagery and huge library of music and great beats to be the base of a game. There's so much that can be brought in. But, I would need a layout that allowed for all nine original members to have a shot in the game, which Demo Man had.
So I spent the time until about a year ago collecting parts, ordering a P3-ROC system and VirtuaPin cabinet, setting up MPF, and writing down rules.
