Multi-Races works!  I finished the wiring after last episode, fired it up, and can play games on it.  There are no graphics currently, but still a major victory.

Robo-Frenzy has also had a few victories over the past weekend - the score motor turns, score reels and reset function properly, and the short was found.

Today's game is 1942's Keeney Towers: https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=5095

I'm just about ready to turn on Multi-Races for the first time. Exciting time for any project.  I talk about wiring the coils and motors in the game, and some of the challenges.

Today's game is 1959's Gottlieb Straight Shooter (https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2394)

Robo-Frenzy  has had a small advancement, but more time is needed to test everything.

Multi-Races, I am having some second thoughts about how I will construct parts of the game.  Discussion awaits!

The Multi-Bingo is getting a nice bit of polish ahead of the Texas Pinball Festival.  I look forward to meeting new people and seeing their reaction to the game!

Multi-Races progress continues - I've wired the playfield and placed it within the game.  Soon I'll be testing the games!

Today's featured game is 1958's Bally Skill Parade: https://ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2181

I'm continuing to program Multi-Races, and am working backwards chronologically.  I've arrived at the first game Bally produced post-war, 1946's Victory Derby and Victory Special.  I speak a bit about the large changes in portioning that these earlier games have from the later (Don Hooker designed) games.

Robo-Frenzy has been tested, and I have found a flaw in the 30V line which will require a bit of rewiring (once I find the problem).

I will be at the Texas Pinball Festival, 2019 in Frisco, TX - with Multi-Bingo in tow!  Come say "Hi", and try to win a prize.

Today's game is 1957's Gottlieb "Ace High" - https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=7
