    Default Deciding on a setup, choosing games etc

    OK!

    House purchased, garage will be converter to gameroom. I will finally be able to have a small line of Pachinkos next to my arcade games.
    I want to have 3 games in a row in a single cabinetwall and will also build a ballfeed system.

    I'm mainly asking for advice on how to think around titles. I've played alot of pachinko when I lived in Japan around 10 years ago so the setup will most likely be something like this:

    Super Sea Side Story
    Evangelion
    Some of the more "RPG"ish titles out there, I need suggestions here.

    Ultimately I would like to have at least 2 different standards so that I can swap out the cells for different games, I do like the samurai and baseball titles aswell as the more "western" themes.

    I will have my own tokens and will hook up a very basic coinmech to basically press the "add balls" button and then have one of (Dave is it?) cartridges to sort out the rest.

    Since the versions of SSS for example I will look for are slightly older I hope that I can find them at reasonable prices, I'm located in Sweden so most likely I will have to get a pallet from YJ or the likes.


    Please help =D

    Well there are loads of Sea Story machines. I've had SSS in the Med twice. I'll dig out a couple of blogs from Japan later about guys there who have built systems. My own system feeds 3 machines and has a ball counter on it. But it's still being tried and altered as I find issues.

    Yeah, one option is to just buy a complete used "amusement" cabinet that reuses the balls, with so many arcades shutting down I shouldbe able to source a couple of those.

    Do we have any reselers of pachinkomachines in the EU?

    For RPG game suggestions, I would say Biohazard is pretty good; mines the Diachi version from 2013 or so I think. It’s got a touchpad and you do get to “shoot” zombies and there’s an animatronic zombie head that pops out screaming and startles you from time to time. It’s a good game to play alone in the dark.

    I highly suggest getting a Sankyo Fortune frame though, since it fits a newer Biohazard cell, Symphogear, Lady Gaga, Macross Frontier 2 and 3...and many many more. I haven’t played that particular version of Biohazard though I do have some of the other cells.

    Senran Kagura is another GREAT RPG ninja/boob themed machine; it’s funny and some good games fit the frame like Queen’s Blade 2 and a bunch of others.

    I’d also consider some of the great anime themed machines or maybe a hanemono!

    Rio 2 is among the best modern digipachi machines in my opinion. Tons of cell swapping options in that frame. Lupin the end Fujiko version is also highly recommended; but it only fits one other cell (the regular Lupin)

    Tenryu infinity is a good skill based one that has a ton of retro non-lcd playfields with lots of nails. Can’t go wrong with that frame either.

    So I ended up with a Top Gun in a antler frame to start. Mostly since it was fairly cheap for Sweden and local to the new small town I moved to.
    Will have to replace the glass to something slightly thicker and get started on the wall.

    If anybody have any cellsuggestions for this fram I'm all ears.

    Adjust the nails so it’s easier to get spins.

    Or start shopping for hanemono type machines/cells! You get fevers every 5-10 minutes with those if you’re any good; much better choice for those with short attention spans or kids.

    Or look for 1/99 odds machines; much better for home use vs. 1/319 1/399 odds machines that rarely hit but have a massive jackpot potential.

    More frequent fevers and smaller payouts are better at home; and not as risky in the parlor setting.

    My and my daughter usually just feeds the mouth with the glass off (She's 3 and the pump mechanism is way to load so this works for everybody involved =)

    Can't I change it?
