Man - they've got some great Ballys on location. The real question is . . . how is it playing? Does it have the LED seizure mod that shortys loves so much?

the boss actually likes classic ballys so i doubt he'll tart it up with LED's. haven't been in yet to check it out though.
This isn't a problem with tungsten bulbs because the filament remains red hot for a short duration after voltage is removed - long enough to appear lit persistently.

plays easy. they need to novus that thing, ratchet the rear legs all the way up, and put it on three ball. the chief annoyance right now is the upper right gate is not stopping balls as they come around the orbit, but it's kinda interesting having to deadeye a shot through OR BS to hit that center lane.

saves from the side are fairly easy because the pitch is low. same with the chamber. the 4 target is impossible to knock down from the left flipper so you have to count on a lucky bounce or the spot target. tilting once ends your game but doesn't kill everyone else's.

Sounds like it has the tilt warning setting engaged. "We'll give you a warning, but if you tilt afterwords THAT'S it!"

Novusing the PF? C'mon now - that's just asking too much. . .

Strange how much easier that game is when it's not steep enough. I've got mine completely jacked up in the back and it still seems to be a snap to get multiballs going forever. Thinking about adding a little 2' x 4' riser mod.

that's what i had to do with the centaur II at my place. it's either that or take oomph out of the flippers, which is just sacrilege.

This centaur is so flat it needs flippers at the top of the playfield to get the ball moving!

You better not let Centaur hear you talk about him that way. He might violate you with his moto_______.

What? Fathom was my favorite game there. I'm not sure I've even played Elektra. Where did Fathom go, do you know?

Ah, Sorry pal. Too bad Lil' Ramone doesn't like pinball. That place could be rad. Keep the faith.
