    So, I did, and haven't left yet.

    I guess I did, so what is my next wish?

    To go to LA in January...ah the joys of a sales job, already going :)

    What I really want is a pinball machine

    Fish Tales, Fish Tales was awesome, but so so was Theatre of Magic and so so many more, Actually mario was rad.

    I have been playing it on the Android tab.

    just before Matilda was born I bought some empty cabs and was going to build a virtual pinball machine, if you have the spare cash and time its worth doing, if you put the effort it ends up being about 90% of the experience, because you can get haptic feedback etc in there.

    Failing that I may make an android style version when my 30% ruling comes in :)

    Sounds great. A guy just down the road (where i used to live inn canada) had a sales and service business. Suffice to say, spent a few times slowly walking past until got the invite to check things out.

    A mate of mine in Melb has the addams family one. One 'party' night I managed to get 50 points off 1 ball. He reckons that's still the record lowest he's ever seen .

    I think he's right.

    The app on the phones isnt bad but the iphone runs it too fast and the s3 too slow but runs perfect on the galaxy note.

    The vpinball and wjatever the other forked project is, are great. Have a look at virtual pinball cabinets on youtube some of the things people have done is mouth watering

    The early 90's Indiana Jones, Addams Family, Star Wars and Dr.Who were great. Funhouse and Whirlwind from the 80's were a blast. Recently, the mid-00s Elvis has been rocking the HH household.

    It is the most fiddly bit and the problem is that there is an unprotected component that gets hit when you smash the ball into the catch on the left, underneath the platform. With an after-market part installed, it protects the platform circuitry and provides many, many hours of Indy fun, fault-free.

    The biggest problem with the early-90s machines is that they run hot and the wiring/circuit boards are now susceptible to shutting down mid-game. It's worth the cost to get the boards upgraded and replace all the incandescent globes with the brighter, cooler LEDs.
