    Feedzitat von Pinball News: „Whenever any pinball machine is designed and built, there’s a lot of paperwork generated.  From the playfield drawings, the wiring diagrams and mechanical drawings of every mechanism, to the bill of materials and the purchase orders, everything has to be designed, calculated and documented. That paperwork can also be rather revealing; about how the games were created, the personal relations between members of the design team and the state of the business at the time,…

The match play tournament play-offs and finals take place on Sunday and we will be reporting on the results of those a little later, but as we take our last look at t…

    Feedzitat von Pinball News: „Pinball machines have traditionally been ‘closed-box’ devices. You play a game, get a great score, but then what?  The details are trapped inside the machine’s memory, and if your score isn’t one of the top few, all trace of it is lost the moment the start button is pressed again. You could take a picture of the display or post a message on social media, but it’s a cumbersome manual process. Just as with tournaments, where someone has to read the score and manually e…
