If images are in your albums, click "Other Media"drop-down then  "Insert Existing Attachment"

 

I attached via my files. 

What happened was before I added, I went to my phone pics to check them in full size. 

Upon returning, all my files had disappeared and couldn’t get back. 

 

Ill look at doing albums, but you realise how much stuff I have   

 

When in TT it would allow you to go through pics at full size before choosing. 

I will play with the other media stuff a bit more. 

 

But remember , my hands are full sorting and doing the work first.

I'm sorry mate but the Gallery and attachments are 2 different things and it sounds to me like your over complicating something that should be simple.

The Gallery is for people who want to upload a large amounts of pics to the site to share and optionally you can use those pics in your threads via the "other media" drop down.

All you need to do on your phone is tap "Add Files" then select the ones you want to upload.

Sorry Edy but can't help but be insulted by you comparing this to a outdated parasite like Crapatalk. 😄

This is exactly hows it's done on FB or any other modern site.

Fixed the bowl mount that was missing. So many bits missing. 

Cut the head off a machine screw, pinched a ramp standoff spacer, fit the thread into the spacer making a new correct standoff. 

Much better.

Ok. 

Spent some time going through the missing switch and lamp wiring.

Made a list. Checked it twice.

Went through the harness and worked out what went where and labelled

Parts ordered (mostly) to make up the harnesses. 

Switches, plugs, wire harnesses, connectors, Ball gate w switch brackets, lift ramp roller plus a heap more.

Hopefully I can get back to actually working on the Creatures again soon instead of looking at them and manuals and parts sites and mental hospitals

Problem is I bet all those missing parts are in someones garage that thought they would "restore" there machine and then lost interest exactly like what happens with so many car restorations.

Well this is a kick in the guts. I knew I had too much going on at once. 

The missing wire harnesses and switch gate were on the table where I do playfield swaps. Next to all the paper and pads and bits I’ve been cleaning up. 

After I ordered new ones. 

I know I said no more new jobs until I finish what’s here, but the agonising wait time for parts is killing me. You can’t just pause for 2 months and wait. 

From here in it’s going to only be playfield swaps or jobs that come with all the parts pre purchased. I’m  a repairer not a store man. 

At least with the 2nd creature, all the parts are there and anything new needed is purchased and stored in advance.

It’s one thing after another lately  

now the electronics supplier won’t be sending to Australia. 

“Due to covid outbreaks, USPS has suspended services to Aus”

Running out of things I can do.

It is very frustrating times 

needed to go and get some sanding belts from total tools

I couldn't go to Albion park as it is out of my council  region

I hear ya. Worst case just buy online and get it sent. 

While waiting on parts, I cleaned the light panel and installed the repro “Creature” light baffle.

In good news , the plastic set is on its way as is the new CPU.

Been a long wait, but got the plastic set. So assembled the signs and installed the inlane plastic. 

Thats it until the rest of the awaited parts show up.

Installed the plastics, roll pin on the lift ramp, missing double post and apron.

Had to swap out a heap of screws for stud posts.

Also had to fudge the 4-3/4” standoff.

Still missing quite a few bits.

The Funhouse and 1 x CFTBL are looking good, nice work

Thanks Jady

Installed the new cpu. Quality is lacking, re: soldering. 

Driver board is bad condition. Lots of hacks.

Had to re install the 5v BR as the + track wasn’t even connected. Game now boots. 

Same with GI input. Removed connector, re-joined through hole tracks and new header pins. Checked tracks to  triacs and output pins voltage. Now have GI. 

Dmd board looked bad, was told not good. Used another one , but it’s the display itself that’s bad. Swapped out for a good display, now working. 

Sound, - no sound but loud hum. Off to Ken. Most likely the LM1875 as voltages are fine. (Missing chunk)

Playfield lamps, none working. Have 18v in the driver, so more work to be done. 

Yet to check solenoids or power. Too many problems at once to deal with. 

Flipper board - unknown yet. I’ll wait. 1 thing at a time. 

100+ hours into this thing so far. FFS.

Big hours mate. I hope this isn't a love job.

Creatures never did much for me but that Snack bar mod looks excellent.

Well the last of the missing standoffs complete for the ramp mount. 

Not being able to get the correct male-female #8 thread in correct lengths, have had to fudge  

#6 with a screw through the t-nut

Ready for the centre ramp once I can get the 2 missing ball guides.

So lost the GI again. 

Went through switch testing. Had to fix and adjust a few but all are now working. 

Pulled the driver board and it can go to Ken along with the 2 sound boards. 

It has had so many hacks and bad work. See what he has to say. 

Ended up just swapping in the good driver board out of the other machine just to get some life out of the machine  

looks good so far
