  1. Hey all! Another resto to make a start on and get half finished haha - not intentionally 😄 A good friend had come across a Scramble Arcade cab he was intending to restore, but unfortunately had to sell due to moving. I was lucky enough to snap that one up quick, and once again equally as surprised at the cab once I got to take a look at it. This is the Flyer for the game: And this is the cab as i picked it up!! It is a Scramble cab that is made by a company called Artic (Who by the above Flyer I found, operated out of Taiwan?) - All that was left was essentially a shell, the only remaining wiring was between the bottom of the cab and the Marquee lighting, not much else. Shame no original PCB i could begin to fault find & repair 😞 But the positives, not in too bad condition for a 40 year old cab if i do say so myself!! From the Flyer compared to the CP on the cab, the control panel was retrofit to a 2 Player 3 button setup (The opposite side of the Marquee was Cabal). On cleaning out the bottom of the cab there were no coins or anything this time - only a hand full of Wasp nests and hay 😄 . So literally a barn find originally? Side Art still looks quite intact and relatively undamaged - just character marks haha With almost all the external components I started on getting the cab working again. Not keen on having a non-functional cab, I set to work fitting in a spare CRT, new PSU, JAMMA wiring harness and of course a 60-in-1 as i had no Scramble PCB (and still don't for now). I picked up a separate 12VDC power supply and fit some new 12v lamps into the original holders. Fired em up and they look nice and bright and beautiful With a new Flouro tube and starter the marquee lighting was up and going again, a re-wire of the control panel and setup of the CRT... And we have a working cab again!! This is where we're at currently with the project, but i'll post some more photos as we progress. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more as i get some time to work on the cab!! 🙂 Den

  3. Well back home and a big thankyou to the pinball community and Club Macquarie. Had an absolute awesome time catching up with a lot of people I hadn't seen in over two years and playing some great games. A special mention to Lyndon from The Australian Pinball Museum at Nhill who bought up 4 fantastic examples of games at the very beginning of pinball as well as some great memorabilia. Another special thanks to Michael from AMD for bringing up the mighty Godzilla. That game is sooooo much fun. Thanks people.

  6. 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?

  8. G'day I'm Ray from Albury. Everyone calls me Razar. I've been a quiet member for many years, I used to spend my time mainly reading & looking at everybody else's projects etc. I haven't been on for a look for a long time sorry, kinda got lost in work & life as you do. I have a general interest in all things gaming, probably more so Arcade, but would love to have a pinball machine too one day. I have cocktail cabinet i made into a mame machine years back, which I never fully finished, but the kids & I did get some fun out of it for a while. So i was cleaning up the shed at my work, which reminded me to get back on to AA again. I have a couple of crt monitors, here of various sizes, they were going to the tip, but if anybody is interested in them for a project then hit me up. I'd rather see them go into a project, than go in the bin. Also, The new website looks great, BTW. anyway thats all for now thanks Razar

  10. This game is one of sterns best.. Layout is so well done, ramps are so good to shoot, modes are good, animations & callouts tick every box. Upper playfield is very tough-which is good. Very well coded with more to come.

  11. Had the pleasure of two visits in a week. One to drop off our old trusty 4 X 4 that now lives on the farm. $1500 trade in or live a life on a farm and become a farm tool?. I think she got a better deal. Bought it 3 years old in 2004 and used it towing a cage trailer back and forth to the farm. Was the wife's car and she loved it until 2 years ago and then it sat around here costing rego and insurance so it now lives at the farm. One bonus, she may get to see the other end of the farm as she's only seen it once and that was me driving the two setter buggy with her beside me. Other than that she has never been further than 200 meters from the farm house. So dropped off the 4 X 4 and my son took me straight back home in his car. Come back the week after and all I could see heading in to the farm was a purple/ pink flower everywhere. Never seen the bush do this before. I thought it was Paterson's Curse but no, this is tea tree or atleast a member of the tea tree families flowering making these coloured flowers. I say a memeber of the tea tree family because the local tea tree in Sydney and the National Park are not this colour, they are all white. Took this picture heading out so you can see what the fields looked like... A close up of it on the farm.... When nature puts on shows like this out of the blue, I feel very greatful. Same style flower as wattle but as you can see, definately pink/ purple. This is up there when the pines drop yellow dust pollinating only it doesn't get yellow dust absolutely everywhere making everything go yellow including the water on the dams for about a week, just an extremely pretty flower and millions of them. Anyway, rain has been intense this year and the land is loving it and may have something to do with a year of pink tea tree. I've mowed this paddock near the house 4 times this year. Every other year prior we have owned the farm I have only needed to mow it once. While I mowed my mate decided he would swing the pick and shovel and maybe make the old creek crossing possibly safe enough to get the 4 X 4 across. I was rather sceptical. It had a wicked wash out coming down one side and if the back end of the 4 X 4 side into it, I'd say she would roll down into the creek. This is the crossing we were building the bridge to bypass as this is one you basically let nature win at. Had to cut a dead wattle tree off the track before we could get to it. Wasn't like that in August... Well he did a great job widening the exit from the creek and decided to give it a go. Put it in 4H , told my mate to jump in and we would see how good of a job he did. Car climbed out fine, not even a wheel spin and got about 1km further down the track come to this. Track was wide enough for quads so what goes, the pine tree or the termite mount?. Neither, we'll cut the branches and done, onto the next blockage... On we go but had to stop at this tree . It's an absolute monster gum. 680mm in diameter not circumference. Looks like the wet ground and wind brought it down but it took out another on the way down.. While the rain is great for growth, the big trees loose out I think. That's a tree we will find a use for that's for sure. Probably enough wood there to near slab the whole bridge. To big to use as is, the trunk to the head is just under 20 meters long. Anyway, on we go about another 1/2km to that tree we cut up in August at the swamp. Hmm, track not wide enough and we stacked the firewood pile to close. Have to change that.... Took care of that and I was pretty confedent we were just about clear to get about as far as I wanted to go. This place. It's the top of the valley that has another major creek going through it and this is the only track down into the valley, Neither of my neighbours can get down, they have sheer cliffs. With this track going down into the valley..... Will get the 4 X 4 down that hill one day but it will take 1/2 day working on the track and idea is use the 4 X 4 to get the bridge done once and for all and then we get further down. Need to drive to this point and turn around, pick the log or wood up on the way back out and continue travelling where the wood is going. Cleared this area and can easierly turn the 4 X 4 and the trailer around... So, a weekend I wasn't expecting much from turned into getting the 4 X 4 on the other side of the creek and a track it can go along to about the last 1/2km of track to the very end of the farm. Now we can drag the logs into place and get the bridge built, one that won't float away this time but also have access to about 50 times the amount of trees we can get the 4 X 4 to. The tractor will still have to wait till the bridge is built as will the cage trailor but this 4 X 4 is going to make things very much easier. Grabbing heavy loads or dragging logs we could do to some degree with the quads but not really viable but this thing moving large loads makes it very viable. Another bonus is you don't need to learn to ride a quad to see the place. It's been that way since we bought the place but while ever I can get that 4 X 4 over that creek before it washes itself out again, the 4 X 4 it is. That's it for this time. Hope you enjoyed.

  15. All the candy sales in AUS seem to be surrounded in secrecy and behind closed door type transactions… the odd few that do make their way to public listings are sold very quickly, which shows there is interest but lack of stock available to the general person. If there really were people sitting on stockpiles then my biggest bit of advice would be to list them up, regardless of the asking price. Knowing who to talk to or where to go to find stuff without having to stumble across an “inner circle” group or wait for the guy with a stash to hopefully see your WTB post would be a god send for most people. I have my wish list and would pay more than market rate for stuff on it, but finding stock or getting a committed seller is a rarity. I’ve essentially personally imported almost all of my collection due to the above, and if shipping rates weren’t so high at the moment I’d be filling up containers and bringing over stock to sell, and in the process would focus on undercutting the local market that’s apparently out there but is never seen….

  16. Pessimeister: 12, 590 What a fun little game. Plays like a mixture between Space Invaders, Lunar Lander and even Choplifter. The collision detection might have me shedding what little hair I have left once the two weeks are over though. 🙂 Combines well with some nice space synth in the background.

  21. $3.5k Located Cranbourne VIC. Original 4 player LAI TMNT. All fully working. Front door has a few scars on it, but otherwise a very staight and solid plywood cabinet. Original Konami 4 player PCB, original MCA joysticks, aftermarket player buttons, original LAI marquee, reproduction control panel overlay and coin slot surround, original monitor looks good with nice colour. Coin mech is set up for $1 per game. Control panel is removable for easier transport or getting through tight doorways. This is the first cab I ever bought, had it about 20 years 😲

  22. Not to get in a fight, but which display pics are you talking about? There’s one pic in which the displays are powered off, but in the direct light so maybe the “off” colour is throwing you? All the display pics I can see are white. And the link works fine for me. Anyway, all good. Either way, it’s a gorgeous game. Really hate seeing it go. But that’s what happens when you’ve got 18 amazing games, space for 12 and 4 more coming.🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  24. Couple of initial impressions: Pros Immersive game, well integrated theme and display. Stackable multiballs and modes plus multipliers. Good strategy can lead to a hefty pay day if done correctly. The foundry adds to strategy and is well executed. Layout is excellent with some old school elements. Backhandable shots, good combos, lots of staging and diverters for the ball... some good mechanical action with the upper pf. I did have initial impression that it was centre shot all day but code makes you play the entire pf for decent scoring and progression. Cons Not good enough to stop me playing gnr Code is buggy as shit at .98 Grogu is fine and doesn't take up wasted real estate as some think, and the child lanes are a nice throwback... BUT the child awards need to be more lucrative over just normal mystery awards. I could care less if he moves or not... its a very nice mould. Needs more side missions. Art - all subjective but a real rustic western presentation with all the rich colours, dark metal and warm lighting. Whoever did the art nailed it and should be doing more games. A nice break from the rainbow vomit palate that has come out of late. Probably the nicest looking backglass since bksor.

  34. Unfortunately I had a voltage issue, I got 12v and 5v crossed over on a connector and blew all the mute inputs on the PIC chips on Mikes boards, Totally my fault the boards are great but I've had to wait for replacements to arrive, which they did today. I have a few spares now so the recovery time should be a lot quicker if I do anything else like that again. I do have a couple of other projects on the go at the moment but they should both be beneficial to future pinball projects. While I was waiting on the parts We decided to insulate and gyprock the rear wall of the Tech Shed (where I do most of the work on the Thomas pinball.) that'll make it more comfortable during the hotter weather. We also had a 1200 x 1200mm CNC router donated to the Tech Shed so we're working on restoring that next. It'll be handy for producing my own design playfields. There's always plenty to do. Sorry for not being able to provide more updates but there's not been much to look at. If you're not aware. I created the Tamworth Tech Shed which is a Not For Profit Makerspace housed in the sheds on my property for which I'm the president. The Thomas pinball is in one of the sheds where we gather weekly

  36. 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

Again - thanks for the time and effort over 16 years!

  42. What a fantastic event. Thanks again to the NPA for putting this event on and all of the effort that went into organising it and making it run smoothly. Fiona and I loved it. Thanks to Dave for the awesome photos from the event, too. Below are the audits from Demolition Man from the weekend. Unfortunately I forgot to grab the initial figures before the first session on Saturday. I got them after that session instead. So, there would have been a few more games played than indicated by the stats below. Unsurprisingly, figures are way down compared to pre-pandemic years (between 300 to 500 games started and typically over 15,000 flipper flips in previous years).
