  2. Hey guys, a week out from this, sending out PMs with the address. I have a bunch of work people and other friends coming as well, so there will likely be 30+ people dropping by on the night. Plenty of beer and snacks provided, bring $10 for the pizza jar. See you all there.

  4. Men's Helpline... “Hello, my name is Bob. How can I help you?” “Hi Bob, I really need your advice on a serious problem. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs: If the phone rings and I answer, the caller hangs up. She goes out with ‘the girls’ a lot. I try to stay awake to look out for her when she comes home, but I usually fall asleep. Anyway, last night about midnight, I hid in the shed behind the boat. When she came home, she got out of someone’s car buttoning her blouse, then she took her panties out of her purse and slipped them on. It was at that moment, crouched behind the boat, that I noticed a hairline crack in the outboard motor mounting bracket. Is that something I can weld, or would I need to replace the whole bracket?

  15. For anyone interested I 'plugged in' my YouTube channel today i.e. content is now public instead of unlisted. A few videos, all of them arcade related (for now). I'll be adding lots of new content, particularly in the New Year as some other projects I have in the queue ramp up. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2cpUdz2rxxhfn9QiwqrU8g Cheers Ond

  20. AMD had 2 pro's at pinfest 2 weekends ago and I played that game by far the most all weekend. Absolutely awesome fun and the pro is well loaded. Love that little U-turn magnet on the upper left. very clever. Just to give an idea what Godzilla was up against; LZ, GNR, DP, Alice Cooper, AIQ.

  21. Interesting game. Liked it. I will try more times. Despite the simple graphics, the game shows a certain action. Just be patient on the way back to the mother ship. 😃 2590

  30. Hi everyone, just posting this again to be sure. I remember at the arcades in the 80s, gamers used to bring hard plastic coin holders, and then move them crazily over the buttons for more speed. It destroyed the buttons and ruined the game for others. Tool usage of any kind to assist in game control is not permitted. Only fingers on buttons are allowed. The buttons must be used for running, not the joystick. No mouse, no gloves and no joystick can be used for running. Please note the After Last Event Setting is Game Over. 😆

  32. Got my hands on a CRT tester on Wednesday night to try out thanks to hwaygo on discord - it's the BK Precision 490 and fortunately for me, it had the correct CR23 connector 🙂 Never having done any of this stuff before, I watched multiple videos of what we needed to do, but at the highest level, we needed to set up the heater voltage, the G1 and then RGB cut offs. There's a website called http://tubular.atomized.org/ which provides the values for a significant number of tubes - of course it doesn't explicitly state my tube. My tube is an A68LBT696X, this only site only has an LBS, so I thought one letter wouldn't be too bad. I base lined the G1 on 70v. Got everything all wired up, triple checked, it was time to give it a go and see what happens Had a very nice orange neck glow which mean the tube was physically still OK and the vacuum on the neck was still good - not the dreaded blue glow which meant oxygen has gone into the neck. According to what we were testing, all three guns were clearly "bad" So hwaygo and I went through the process of "clean and balance", re-testing and eventually hit the "rejuvenate" function. We did this a number of times until it finally tested in the "good" region At this point, we decided, all we could do was "test" and see what happens. Wired up the chassis, turned her on and VOILA! We have picture! It needed calibration, but it was great to see an image on this tube considering when I got it, it was so dim that it was black. That's where the excitement finished - I got called for a Major incident at work so we had to stop our testing, but thankfully hwaygo left the tester at my place to allow me to do some further testing/rejuving. I left the game running but by the time I checked in (must've been an hour or so later), the green and blue guns significantly faded 😞 I then had the opportunity to test a little further last night and one thing I noticed when I set the G1 to 70v was when I was trying to adjust the RGB cut off in the setup, it wouldn't move no matter how far right I increased the dial, even maxing it out. So this time, I set the G1 to 50v like most of the other tubes. I redid the whole process multiple times blasting the tube - at this point I really had nothing to lose, so I blasted and blasted 😄 After all that zapping, I finally managed to wire it all back up and I've got picture again! This time, I'm very apprehensive as I didn't have much luck the previous time, so all I could do was sit and wait to see what happens... Colour charts look good In game looks good too It's definitely on the "dim" side, but I'll take "dim" over no picture any day of the week 🙂 I had it on for about 4 hours last night just looping through the attract mode of the game and it seemed to hold up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGOBRT-tEt4 I've turned the cab on this morning from 7:30 and will leave it on running just before I go to sleep and see how it holds up before putting it back in the cab. If it holds up, then safe to say it won't do what it did the first time around and I can use it until I find a replacement tube. If it fades, then I need a replacement tube quicker as I can't do a rejuve process each time I turn the cab on.

  33. 1,833,300 I thought was going to crack 2M for sure. I took a photo of my score during the first ball of 937,330, (the ball is still on my flipper so there is still 150K bonus to come). Score after my first ball ended up 1,292,660. Score after the end on the second ball, 1,689,700. Could have done better I thought. Still only a tad over 300K to crack the 2M, game on or so I thought. Boo, Hiss. That's it for me on this one even though I still think I have 2M in me
