Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum but being 44 definitely not new to pinball. I just wanted to start off with a easy lighthearted question: What is Nip It that was featured on HAPPY DAYS like?

It's also being worked on to make the move to vp9. But it will take a while.

Plus, you're not really "chatting" when you show up and spew out a sentence. That's more of a very short monologue. I'm glad we've discovered the robot's weak point before Skynet takes over.

bally's nip it was a fun game to play. it was one of only a few EM's to have 2 ball multiball , flippers that closed to capture balls called zipper flippers , and a ball grabbing arm called the balligator that was controlled by its own button next to the right flipper button. those 3 things kept the machine popular for many years. i have just seen one for sale on CL for either 6 or 8 hundred. if i had the extra money i might have bought it. one of my favorite EM's.

Actually that's the one Hauntfreaks was working on. It's available at the VPU I think. PBecker1946 is also working on a "photoreal" version. But he gets bored working on stuff and starts a new one. It's in the "rotation", but he has like almost 30 in various stages. He's on the right, I'm on the left.

The area on the backbox is storage for this: A plug and play Mame panel which plugs into my lockdown bar. I left the biz about when DMD was taking off, and I'm not really into that era as much. Also, there's no way in hell I'm going to reconfigure all my tables for 3 screens...-again. (Already doing that to add plunger/ball loader support.

One thing I don't see people doing- that I'm doing is I leave my backglass plugged into the cable/dvd, etc. Since my cab is next to my workbench I watch tv/movies on it all the time. It IS a tv after all...

Hi Kriss. You look familiar.

Is there a particular game that you are looking for? Don't worry if you don't know the name.

Most games are at www.vpforums.org
or at the irpinball site, or here at Pinball Nirvana or at http://roguepinball.com/index.php
