  1. 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….

  2. @Ryan555came over yesterday and did the wiring on the Aero City. It still needs proper tidying up inside and lots of things to finish off, but it's working and playable. Still waiting on the bloody decals from Belgium. 🙁

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 7,880 Woo hoo, let's get this party started! Fun old game! Was quicker for me to play than to figure out how to attach an image 🤪 And now that I have figured that out here's a groovy old flyer [EDIT: Image credit for above flyer: It came from https://flyers.arcade-museum.com ]

  10. 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

  12. 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

  13. Hey OOO Just wanted to say super-kudos to you for organising FIFTY of these things, and doing so with such gusto, enthusiasm and positivity! I haven't always been great at participating in these contests as life always seems to intervene 😞 But I'll make an effort to have a crack at all the games in this one. Again - thanks for the time and effort over 16 years!

  17. 99,000 An embarrassing score to say the least. I'm losing all my men from points pressing which I'm just not used to doing. So I say, "ok, that's it! I'm just going to "clear stages" instead". So I start another game and go right back into points pressing again and die instantly, over and over again. Insanity “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” My mother raised me better than this. LOL

  20. 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?

  23. It’s a German company that sands back the original playfield and re-prints the art, then clear coats. So you end up with the original pf/inserts but with flawless art and beautiful clear. Looks phenomenal. www.pinball-classics.de but it’s all in German.

  26. I picked up this non-working DMG-01 - I am hoping to get it up and going again if I can. Pulled it apart and it isn't in too bad shape, but it is not powering up. Hopefully I can test this week and probe where I am getting power to figure out whats going on 👍 🤞

  27. What button mashing techniques are working for people. I’m not sure where I’m going to find more points. I’m struggling to get the speed above 1200 cm/sec and have plateaued. I’ve tried a few different techniques 2, 3 & 4 fingers/1button and 2 & 4 fingers/2buttons. 8 is out of the question as my pinky fingers are significantly shorter than the others so I can’t rest my hands in a stationary position and still reach the button. I can do 6 but can’t maintain the rhythm, which might have a bit to do with my console layout. I’m finding 2 fingers/1button is the most consistent for me. I also wonder could I be maxing out my button response rate. I’ve tried both Sanwa OBSF-30, and Happ with Cherry micro switch. I have not noticed a difference so have to assume it is all down to technique. let me know what you are doing. cheers edit: just watched FlyHec’s 8 finger technique video and I’ve got no excuse. I think his pinky’s are shorter than mine 😝

  28. @DAG you have my permission, though I'm not the author of the video. @Htbast are you there? @Railways. I had my own updated version printed out for Pinfest 2016 and was displayed at show (I don't think you attended that year?). Continuous print that is 13m long and cost me $2500 at the time. Still incomplete and still 1948 to 2005. Its difficult to find room even at Club Macquarie when the walls end up being lined with pinballs. Will investigate on perhaps finding a wall in another room....

  33. 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.
