I've come to realize its not for me. I will use my time to restore my games and my Arcade and Pinball Room.

My close friends recommend i sell my viewlix as it does not fit in the theme and the 32 inch LCD screen brightness washes out the black lights in the ceiling, which takes away from the carpet i acquired from the movie Pixels. :cry:


All you have to do is ask and I can make you a copy of my hyperspin setup for your cab :wink: Now before my inbox potentially gets flooded, this free offer is not open to just anyone as I've known aerostarz since I got into this hobby. Plus I know he has also been a contributing member on here and other local forums for many years too. Always willing to help others who help others out but these days there are just too many noobs/lurkers/profiteers who only post when they want something.

Come by in the next few weeks and you can see all my vewlix's capabilities. I will also be posting a build thread with pics and details shortly once I am done.

i've been looking for a red tent for quite a while and I was excited when i saw the ad, but it was really beyond my budget

I sent serge a message and said he is keeping it because his daughter gave him crap for trying to selling it. I told him to keep it and ditch his MAME Z-back SF2CE as this red tent does everything and more. Plus I think it is a unique one of a kind piece and you won't find another one like it again. Plus I also think he realised it is sort of a dick move to flip it for double after the friend price I gave him too.

Oh well... we all have different motives in the hobby and mine has always been to help others out by enabling them hence my nickname "The Enabler" in the local pinball community. Since 2010 I've helped and assisted in making over 400+ pinball deals between people.
