    i have seen some youtube videos with people making tables from legos, and the tables actually work. with an auto updating score board and all, even multi-floor ones too. the people that make there own are really great at it

    sorry for the bump again .


    i was messing around with the table again, mostly looking at how stuff worked, and made a few videos about stuff i don't understand (yet). can someone look at these and tell me anything that could help ?

    its all the juke jubliee videos i have made though, you will need to sort through them, the 4th video should be where i start with the stuff i don't understand.

    thanks


    i HOPE the rest of this thing will be semi easy to do...still gotta mess around with the score board part and get the left flipper to make noise...if only i had a tripod prop up the camera and record the back of the score board, with the covering off, to see if anything is even turning at all.

    now to get a decent tripod...

    sorry for the double post.


    fixed that wire.

    looked at the bottom of the table part, took out the glass (its really plastic) and lifted up the lights, a wire is missing from the left flipper! good thing i asked my mom to pick up some wire along with the soldering gun, else i would be boned. the score board STILL does not work though

    yes, i suck at this table.

    nope, not that i know of, my mom doesn't know too.

    GOD ******* ******. i flipped the back over to see if the yellow score reset thing still worked, didn't hold the other part that moves the scores and the brown wire that connects to one of the parts ripped off of one piece. this is gonna take longer then i thought...

    time to get a soldering gun.

    the contacts look like they are new, nothing wrong with them.

    found what wasn't making the score board work.

    Edit: its that, or the one its meant to spin. i just tried spinning it with my fingers, and the long one that goes to the score board wont move when spinning the small one, the small one just stays stuck and doesn't effect the long one.

    The score board is removable from the body for easy storage. There are four metal contacts IIRC. If those are dirty, then it can distort the sound and screw up the scoring.

    thanks .

    got some new D batteries, put them in and come to find out the lights still work!

    so, if i am right on this, all i need to fix is the score board. and get the rust off of the ball.

    Edit: well, that, and the sound. some of the sound just doesn't feel right when playing on it.

    Edit again: this is such a change from playing Zen Pinball. i can really tell how people that had/have full tables made a profit on these.
