  1. Added info - I just tested it without the SD card installed and i got a blank black screen being projected. The RPi3b+ will hold a solid red LED. With the SD Card reinstalled, the screen is projecting the yellow Bolt in the top left corner again, with the red LED flashing 4 slow, 4fast (8) - then cycling the same pattern again. Its my first attempt at using a RPI so not really sure where to go from here.
  2. Evening fella's - I got a RPI3B+ a couple of months back from Dylan and have only gotten the SD card set up to test on one of my machines. I tested the +5V at the PS & at the Jamma Harnessb and it came in at a solid 5V. When i booted it up tho i got the yellow bolt which generally means its not getting enough power. I slowly upped the voltage and re-tried it & am currently sitting at 5.25V at both the PS & Harness - but still no change in result. I am weary to go any higher than 5.25V as this is the recommended maximum. When we tested this at a mates place a couple of months back we also got the same result, but we didn't adjust the voltage at the time as the SD card was not ready. I have put a known working 60-1 pcb in and that is working fine. Is there anything else i should be checking here? Should i try to up the voltage slightly again to see if any difference? Or do i possibly have a issue with the RPi3B+? its runnings a high speed SDcard, not sure if that is relevant or not. Thanks for any help anyone can offer
  3. Yup, i haven't got them yet so thats kinda hard, but we are getting the measurements etc 😀
  4. I had the Mezel Mod mountain, Donut shop & 2 x police cars on my ol Getaway and i thought it made it a far more attractive machine. my plan was to also add some train set style tree's about, but i sold it before i ever had the chance. Realistically, I still wouldn't have gotten around to it if i kept it. Getaway is such a great game, especially once its modded up with toys and color DMD.. Only game ive sold that i kinda regret Yep seen that too - his looked more like whitewater from memory?
  5. Hey Joey, do u know if u have chassis x 2 available for those Toshibas?
  6. anyone have a Pandora DX Special available? Or any Pandora's for that matter. After 2 if they are around
  7. Hey mate i will be there & will bring Chops along. Might have another non pinball mate from ol town with me too. Thanks for ur help yesterday too, was awesome & sorry about the kids trashing ur house😅
  8. Been there done that mate, thank fuck for @raysco A mistake i've only ever made once! Do i get an achievement for offending DAG?? I didn;t think that was possible! I thought DAG did all the offending😂
  9. G'day fella's, I'm a pinballer who is seeing the light & moving over to arcades. Ive purchased quite a few Aus machines already, but i've also got access to a lot of US imports from the 80's which have yet to be turned on. The advice i have been given is it will be wiser to run them off a "step down" as opposed to converting to AUS as its not as simple as just converting the power supply. Older machines tend to require modifications on the boards etc too. Does anyone know of a sound idiots guide checklist that might already exist online of things I should check out before powering these on for the first time? Many of them have very valuable "original" boards in them, so i dont want to risk any damage. I know to check that the correct fuses are in place (although not entirely sure where to find a specs online for each game) & to also clean the cab & boards to ensure no metal shards that may have occurred from drilling out locks. Also double checking all connectors are plugged in, no pins missed. Any direction with it would be awesome and really appreciated
  10. whats the story about the art on it Hank? was it released that way or custom? It looks like Cactus Canyon being Attacked from Mars

  12. I cant thank you guys enough for this, i have arranged with Bill for pick up. These will be invaluable to the arcade. We have around 300 machines all up & keeping them all alive is a big enough challenge, keeping them looking & playing perfectly is a whole other challenge again on top. @Autosteve, if you are ever allowed to visit Brisbane again, please feel free to come down with a mate & checkout 1up Arcade on the house. We are a freeplay arcade after entry so its a good day out if you have the time. These are really appreciated & will be sure to post some pics once we get them chassis, in new machine, up & running 🤗🍻 Joey, i think you spoke to Stephen the owner last week, so either me or him will be in contact once they arrive to push it further.

  13. This i am totally on board with.... " the monkey can stay, but he can only watch". FWIW i really like the Bone Busters topper. Its not oversized & it adds to a quirky otherwise fairly simple, fun game. The game is basic & therefore it adds something where something is needed. Fish Tales one works because again, its quirky & adds humour. If they stayed with Pythons original idea of making it a bit more like a taunting Rudy, that would have been very cool. Its the stupid prices of the modern machine toppers which just grossed me out. $3k? Really? A modern pinball has so much going on already, do we really need to constantly be 1-uping each other on add on another features? CC was a fairly incomplete game in its original release. It was a decent game with an awesome theme that never reached its potential. A cynical person might say they are polishing up a turd for bucks, but i dont see Chicago being like that, their remakes have been A1 & i think they legit want to make CCR be as legit awesome as MB, MM, AFM while keeping us much of the original art, ideas there. They updated the code, the dmd animation looks great & they made a topper that doubles up as an old fashioned shoiting gallery, used mid-game. It will be a huge achievement if they can pull it off, the early signs look very promising. .For as much as the CCR one is cool as its the first to find a way to actually incorporate gameplay in a meaningful way, i can see the idea being bastardized fairly quickly is the response is strong. If that happens, then as ive learned myself - imitation is (apparently) the greatest form of flattery. The sin goes to the imitator, not the creator. I mean, no one shits on The Beatles for sounding like Oasis , right? My final comment on toppers i will repeat this lil golden nugget of analogy of Confucius like wisdom for you to ponder.... its like seeing a plethora of beautiful women wearing a nice dress vs the same plethota of beautiful women in the same dress wearing some stupid big ass hat for Melbourne Cup. If its Melbourne Cup day, she just looks a bit daft but she is given a pass as she is getting into the spirit of things. But if that same plethora of beautiful women started wearing that same damn hat everday when going to Coles to buy their dunny paper & cracked pepper, then the look goes from attractive & beautiful to damned ridiculous pretty quick. You're welcome 👌
  14. We will take this back up tomorrow night at the Yamamanbaaabbooolaalaaalllaaa pinball meet DAG, this conversation is "too hot" even for the internet😂
  15. Hey mate, for those who missed out on an LE, are u going to have any of the SE+ on offer? For those that missed it, they are offering the SE with the topper. If so what are the prices?
