    CRT won't stay on

    I have a 27" CRT in my MAME cabinet (old TV) that won't stay on anymore. I just tried it, and it stayed on for maybe a minute, and then sort of buzzed, flickered, and then powered off, and will not power back on. I'm assuming that something is overheating (maybe one of the capacitors), and I'm...

    Stern Insider Connected/Scorbit

    I know Nick has tried out Insider Connected with Godzilla, and the current word is that retrofit kits will be available later this year and run $200. It's a neat idea, but not necessarily a cheap addon. I'd also heard about Scorbit a while back, who makes an addon board that looks like it'll...

    SOLD Pool table, shop dust collector

    My parents are downsizing, so they're selling some stuff off. Posting here to see if anyone is interested. Both are in the Mississauga (Winston Churchill/Britannia) area: - Dust collector for shop tools. Really useful because it kicks the vacuum system in with the tool start, so it'll...

    WTB JJP Pirates

    Finally decided to go after a JJP POTC, and it looks like NIB games are all gone. Anyone up here get one? Let me know if you want to change things up.

    SOLD TP-Link AC1750 Wifi range extender-$50

    Bought this a couple of months ago to try to sort out bad wifi reception in my home office, but ended up just running ethernet instead. Strong wifi is good, but gigabit ethernet is better, although much more difficult to install. Here's the amazon listing for it. $100 new, looking to get $50...

    MAME with Raspberry pi3?

    Anyone tried building a MAME off a Pi3? A friend at work had a spare kit and some arcade stick parts, so I offered to help put together a box for the office. I've got all the hardware working with RetroPie, and the console stuff seems to work OK, but the MAME romset I have for my cabinet is...

    SOLD No Good Gofers (NGG) $5000

    I just posted this on kijiji, but I'm selling my NGG: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1329364739 Not much to say that's not already in the ad-game plays great, and I've had a bunch of TOPL nights at my place and it's stood up to all of them. I can't think of a single thing I've...

    Stern Single Drop target issue-GB

    I noticed on my GB this morning that the right drop target wasn't staying up. Sure enough, in test it would go up and then right back down. If I move it manually it stays up, but it looks like the lip on the target isn't catching properly when it's fired up by the solenoid. I haven't taken...

    Anyone have a spare ipac that they're not using (2 or 4 player version)?

    Cineplex opening new "Rec Room" game center in Square One

    I saw this story online the other day about Cineplex taking over the old Target (which I think used to be Zellers) space at Square One. Sounds like it's going to be a more upscale/adult targeted Playdium? This is a little odd, since Playdium is just across the street from there... I wonder if...

    FS Bike Trailer

    I just listed this on Kijiji, but thought I'd post here as well. If anyone is interested in a bike trailer, I'm selling one here: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-other-bike/mississauga-peel-region/chariot-1-or-2-child-caddie-bike-trailer-with-stroller-kit/1253220928?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true...

    Polygon story on BBB

    It's a story lots of us have heard before, but with some details I didn't know about. Worth a read: http://www.polygon.com/features/2017/3/21/14937540/history-of-big-bang-bar-pinball

    Getting responses from Stern support

    I had a couple of questions about my Ghostbusters, so I went to email stern about it, but haven't managed to get a reply yet. Last time I had an issue, Pat or Chas got back to me right away, but I tried submitting once through the website before Christmas, again through the website a couple...

    Ghostbusters owners-anyone want an airball protector?

    I saw this thread on pinside (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/ghostbusters-air-ball-protector-now-available) and it looks like a good mod to have (with a few different versions out there). I was going to order one of these-anyone else have a GB and want to split the shipping cost?

    FOUND Ghostbusters Premium

    I feel like changing the lineup a bit, and I'd like some more time on Ghostbusters. Since we don't have any in TOPL, best way to get it might just be to buy one. Thinking about going NIB (possibly through Nitro), but thought I'd check locally first to see whether anyone has decided to move one.

    WTB Older gen ipod

    Hey guys, I'm looking for an older-gen ipod with the 30 pin connector for my Dad. He's got a couple of docks in the house, and wanted to be able to just keep all his music in place, instead of having to move the one ipod between them. Ideally I'd like to find a 4th/5th gen HDD model (or the...

    Anyone here ever repaired a Hard Drive? MAME is toast.

    So the main IDE HDD in my MAME bit the dust, and I can't seem to get it to work anymore. I'd like to at least be able to clone it to a new drive, but it won't even come up in the BIOS. I think it's the power, since it doesn't spin at all, but nothing I've tried so far has worked. I've...

    JJP3-Dialed In-Pat Lawlor Game

    The JJP3 reveal was at the expo seminar last night. Game is called Dialed In: They did a Periscope stream from the event (quality is pretty bad, but it's something) and it looks like the archive is up here: https://www.periscope.tv/jackjjp/1ypKdAVngdYGW Looks like 2 editions: LE-9000...

    Stern Batman 66

    Looks like the next game is going to be a semi-valut edition? My suspicion is that it'll basically be the BDK layout with something replacing the joker can and seesaw, but with the rest of the stuff in pretty much the same location. The second LCD will probably be a "batcomputer" (maybe in...
