I've been working on graphics for the Multi cabinet, and had a coding weekend to take my mind off of artwork...
The Hold feature allows you to return some or all of the balls during a normal game. Pretty cool feature! Used on only three games, Palm Springs, Surf Club and Ice Frolics.
I also describe the gameplay and some of the features of Robo-Frenzy, the new EM arcade game being made by myself and Ryan Claytor.
Speaking of Ryan, he has started working with Pinball Resource to produce new plastic sets for 1950s games. He began with Score-Board, and his work is absolutely stunning. If you need plastics, call PBR now! It was an extremely limited run.
Also, I found out recently that Marco Specialties carries 'dead' rubber. I ordered a bunch and will be outfitting all my playfields with dead rubber on the red posts (as they came from the factory).
All for now!
Multi Progress: 105 out of 107 games that utilize the standard 25 hole playfield (with no additional coils) are complete!
One of those two remaining games was just discovered this week! United's Serenade appeared out of nowhere. I assume it was a prototype game that never made it into full production.
A listener asks how to deal with a noisy coin lockout relay.
Steve Smith is putting together a list of folks interested in a reproduction Bally Bounty backglass - currently impossible to find in the US. Please contact me or see this thread: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/bounty-backglass-remake
Another very interesting development: Ryan Claytor and I have teamed up and are designing a brand new EM arcade game! I've already finished the schematic, and am acquiring parts. This is being worked on in-between other hobby projects.
