Southern Wizards Pinball League - 1st night been and gone


  • Southern Wizards Pinball League - 1st night been and gone

    Hey all

    The SWPL started tonight at my joint.

    13 members turned up , including a new guy from The Gong who made contact with me after the article in the Illawarra Mercury the other week.

    The night went pretty well - with no hiccups.

    The main comp was held on my T3 machine.
    We each had 2 games on the machine and the combined scores gave us our total finish points / positions for the night.
    BERT ( pinofski ) had a 1st game 'fire ball' - the average type of game score on this machine with the settings I have it on ( hard ) is around 20 - 40 million, so BERT opens up with a 168 million first game

    He won the night

    The results for the 1st round can be seen here - Link

    We also ran a ONE ball comp on the night - on Creature from the Black Lagoon - the winner was Rollerball who scored himself a T shirt from The Pacific Pinball Museum in CA.

    Our players are playing for these trophies along with a $250 RTBB parts voucher, a waterfront seafood restraunt voucher, Sennheisser headphones , custom SWPL winners T shirts and other prizes.

    Should be a fun year ahead - a couple of pics of the night
    Rod took some video that he may upload later

      You know I am in mate - but we need to discuss logistics as most of us are down to only a few machines these days.

  • Vastly Improved Search Engine for AA now installed.
    by Arcade King
    The most frustrating thing about the vbulletin forum software is it's terrible search engine. The only advantage a forum like this has over newer here and gone social media is a forum is basically an archive of information but it's only as good as the search function. As it stands you can't even type in simple things like RGB or Neo Geo and get a result, very frustrating as I'm sure anybody whose tried to search on this site knows. I did some research and heard great things about the Sphinx ...

  • AA stubbie holders and coasters
    by kimbleseven
    Hi guys. Aussie arcade is a great resource but relies on donations to keep the cogs turning. I got some Aussie made stubbie coolers made up which are good quality. Also got some cheap coasters made up with AA logo and image on them. I am going to try and raise some money for Aussie Arcade. I'm not profiting from this at all with all profit going to Aussie Arcade. Each AA pack includes 2 coasters and 2 stubbie coolers. Cost is $15 plus postage. Happy to drop off to Adelaide members but interst...
