yes indeed, have you tried the DDJ stuff?

I had a DDJ- SB now upgraded to DDJ-1000
No looks ok though, the sound quality out of the nexus 2’s is a big improvement on the previous stuff.
I’ve also got the Pioneer XPRS PA system that got me into a bit of trouble with some neighbours?

Indeed my neighbour had a similar setup that got him into trouble! :)

As the league is here tomorrow, this place is looking uncharacteristically tidy right now. A twice a year moment. They are all working, no dead games lying about, no dissembled mechs sprawled about on the machines ...

@kevlar

I have to say that Centaur has won me over. The art is not as good as fathom 's. But ...

after I got to know it, I went into the dip settings to limit the multiball availability. If not set right, centaur is a multiball fest. Incoherent. Silly.

But you can fix this.

I will get shot, but IMHO Centaur is head and shoulders above all other bally SS titles. The rules/ strategy/ game play are fundamentally better. I think that Centaur involves as much strategy as some WPC games.

4 different ways to obtain multiball. 2 to 5 ball multiballs. Effective ball save via the guardian multiball.

This game is worth the hype

It is a rare 1989 system 11. Williams bought bally around this time. Transporter has both Williams and Bally components.

I like it. I played it in the wild in 1990.

Game play is a bit limited, like tomcat, bk2k , roller games.

It is a pre-modes game. But great feel, sounds, art

It's only a matter of time before the pool table goes to make way for more pins.
It's pointless fighting it, pins always win in the end.
Jeez...I built my extension for my pool table and your thinking has started to cross my mind....what’s wrong with me ?

I miss that iron man. Probably the game i enjoyed the most. I think it was @kevlar who Led'd it. Did a cracking job.
Yeah looks like my old one, has the Phil Dixon speaker grills and the volume control below the start button that I didn't even know about while I owned it :D. That machine has had many owners including Tobin, Ivan Miles, @Moonraker , @JustLikeMe , myself, @jonathan , @darren_ross and now @Jsyjay ...phew!...did I miss anyone? @GREDDIE too I believe.

I had to disconnect the volume control button so i could add a coin mech. I think i wired it up again before i sold it though. Also i had to remove the token slot from the center hole that was rivetted on. That left holes which i filled and then resprayed the housing. Can just about see it hasn't got the weird token thing in the pic.
I also added the sound mod with black sabbath on game finish and the acdc on war machine.
Apart from that it didn't need touching at all. Was lovely.

@Jsyjay

How is taxi ? It is obviously a sought after title, but never really "got it" myself
It’s simple like all System 11s but I love the risk reward of having to collect all passengers on one ball then after that you have a timed jackpot. It really gets the blood flowing trying to hit the Gorbie shot with the jackpot music going!
