  1. I disconnected my fish many years ago, main reason being how noisy the flapping fish was! I thought I'd reconnect it recently, but couldn't remember how I'd done it. Not gunna bother, it can remain a dead fish...
  2. Big thanks to @Richfor organizing these Wolffpack displays for me. I am very happy with them! They took a bit of time to assemble, instructions were straight forward and simple, everything was bagged up and separated (for each display) All up on Vector there were 6 displays, 4x 7 digit and 2x 6 digit. I worked it out at about 40 mins per display, Not bad for someone who doesn't do a lot of soldering 😁, I did it over a couple of nights to break it up a bit. The pics below show the foam covers attached. (which fit perfect) They look fantastic 👍
  3. Two Blokes are drinking together. One says, “When I die, will you promise to pour a beer on my grave?” The other replies, “No worries mate, but I’ll have to pass it through my liver first.”
  4. WOW! what a magnificent look machine. Awesome! Next Level. 😍
  5. How'd you go Trev any luck on the parts?
  6. Hi All, I have a couple of old c64's that I am keen to fire up. I have been told to be careful of the old power supplies as they may over voltage in their old age and cause the c64's to become smoke machines... Anyone know of the best solution, is it a new supply or an over voltage device. Where can I get one from? Cheers, Nick
  7. Oh No! Terrible news. I always look forward to catching up with Mark at meets. My condolences to Alison and Mark's family and friends. A big loss to the pinball community. A top bloke who will be sadly missed. :(
  8. Happy Birthday Pete! :40s: :birthday:
  9. This sound like a really fun night. I'd love to come along too. Count me in with a Rock Solid commitment ! Cheers, Nick
  10. Well I feel stupid! I never knew he could sit on top of a can...! My Boonies are in the shed and unfortubately I haven't spent much time in there today. It would have freaked me out if he spoke again.
  11. That's terrible news, so sad... Mark was always up for a chat and willing to help out with his vast knowledge of pinball, didn't matter how busy he was. He will be sadly missed by all that knew him. Condolences to his family, freinds and work colleages. RIP Mark. ​​​​​​​

  13. Yesterday I decided to have another go at this, so I took the display board out again, gave it a good clean, cleaned the header pins reseated all the plugs, etc and the fault disappeared.... Not exactly sure as to what caused this, but happy the fault is gone. A big shout out to those that offered advice and especially @Rich for his detailed technical advice that was beyond my capabilities... �
