Just joined this morning with a very nice Magic Castle and I am just blown away by the art and quality of the game.
The ribbon cables between boards are missing
Everything else seems there
Does anyone know where I can find these ?

zaccaria-pinball.com will make you a ribbon cable that you need. He has a Magic castle as well, so he could make you even the display cable since he has one to copy.

Ordered thank you!

Some of you will love it. Most of you will hate it but here it is my full LED Farfalla.

Just joined the club tonight with a Magic Castle. Never heard of the game til I got the lead on this example... Now I don't know if I'll ever give it up. What a phenomenal art and sound package, I love it. This one has been sitting for awhile but everything is there, clean, and mostly functional.

As someone who is doing the exact same thing right now I like it. The varied colors on the rainbow are a no brainer I think, they look very sharp. Color matching the inserts also seems to make a lot of sense. I am debating what colors to use behind the backglass and you have given me some food for thought.

Hi
I like it.

Just over question:
Which kind of bulbs have you used and any flickering problem?

I might switch out the violet in her dress for some warm whites. That’s about it, it really doesn’t bother me. The blue behind the green at the top are actually color changers. The camera doesn’t show the light well. They really aren’t as direct and spotty in person.

These are all comet single and 4smd LEDs with 5 of the 4” 10led strips placed in various locations. I get very minimal flickering when the pop bumpers are going off but I think that’s a short somewhere and not the LEDs.

Out of curiosity, what is a decent condition soccer kings worth? I dont want to sink a ton more money into it if i cant recoup at least most when i decide to sell. Id like to put in new displays and a new backglass, but thats a lot of money. Ill be keeping the game awhile though, i think ill like it once the kinks are worked out

some of the GI's are good. All the stuff that is colored on the top side of the playfield has to go. Inserts in color look good. Backglass is horrifying. You are losing so much art by doing this.

PRICE ESTIMATE
We have seen this game for sale in the Pinside Market once. The asking price was $700

So anywhere from $800-$1200 tops for a nice working one?
Its out of the enjoyment of the game that we fix and restore these games. They are great playing games that just aren't worth a lot (besides a few hard to find ones). Soccer kings, Devil Riders, Magic Castle all good cheap fun.

Agreed. And if i think i can get 500 worth of fun out of it ill probably do the displays and backglass. Im probably under already on the game, but i really dont mind. Its my first zacc and im enjoying working on it

#1164 20 days ago

Got my flipper toppers on soccer kings. David at ulekstore custom made them to match the originals. If interested you can probably contact him for a set. They turned out great!

1978 Zaccaria Ski Jump Mystery - What is this thing??

I recently bought a 1978 Zaccaria Ski Jump. It has the blue EM cabinet and all of the electro mechanical parts that would match the EM style machine. The back glass, on the other hand, looks more like the solid-state version, but it is not. The backglass is missing the yellow “credits” and “ball to play” text and the windows are in the wrong place (it has score reels). I have looked very closely for signs of alteration to the glass, but see none. My question is… Were there games that fell in between the EM and SS eras that were sort of thrown together with a hybrid factory back glass?

Any help or direction is appreciated.

Hi
Skyjump was produced in two versions, electromechanical and electronic with a 8060 CPU board (very rare)

You have the backglass of the 8060 on an electromechanical pinball machine....

I’m not sure I am understanding your comment. The backglass looks like the version that was on the solid state version at first glance but it is different. It does not have the yellow “credits” and “ball to play” text and the clear windows are in the wrong place.

The backbox has 5 reels but only 4 are visible from the front.

#1169 10 days ago

This is the EM backglass that should have been on your game. Maybe it broke in Italy at some bar and they grabbed whatever they could find...

luvthatapex2,

I agree that my machine should have the EM backglass. But mine doesn't have the SS backglass either. See the below comparison:

Mine is the backglass that shows the score reels. It shows no "Credit" or "Ball to Play" in yellow text. In fact, those windows don't even exist. Also the score window is different size and in the wrong place.

I have looked for signs of alterations but can find none.

looks to me like you have the SS version and someone blacked out the credit section and added a thicker boarder to the top one.

Is anyone manufacturing new zaccaria flippers? Follow up, anyone have any NOS that they would like to sell? Would also be interested in lightly used.

dave at zaccaria-pinball.com casts red and blue flipper bats and offers the shaft.

Gday Zac Clubbers, a friend of mine has a House Of Diamonds... he moved a couple of displays around and one of them (player 4) stopped working and the game stopped dealing credits out.

He moved the displays back to their original position. and both issues remain.

Both credit switches seems ok, nothing obvious wrong there.

No credits mean he can’t get a game loaded. It’s bricked!

Has anyone else had a similar issue?

Issue resolved. It’s an early Gen 1 game with no default settings on the CMOS chip. Battery had come loose and the settings had reset to zero... including the pricing.

Solution, check switch matrix for credit switch , proceed to settings menu (by pushing the button on the CPU board then the advance button on the coin door).

Game settings details available at Zaccaria-Pinball.com - thanks David Gersic
