750 Backglasses
With the immense help of Rod McLarge (aka Rob M.), we now have about 750 backglass (the 1400 I had posted earlier was our two-size thumbnail count) images on the site. I think that this is really going to help people correctly identify the correct game as there are lots of instances where a game is both EM and SS and even multiple editions (recent Stern's, Bally home vs arcade, Fireball's, etc). Since the backglass really is the thing that humans perceive when looking to identify a particular game, I hope this will help. Plus it makes the site look a little snazzier! More to come...

More backglass locations...
I have updated the site so that available backglass images will now show on the Game Page, Search Results, Manufacturer game listings and also the game listings by MPU. I will be slowly churning through the process of adding images as best I can. Big thanks to Rob M. for helping with the process too!

Heyo... Backglass Images Comin'
Im starting simple, but in the search results for games, there will now be a backglass image shown for each game. This is something that has been in the Android Mobile app for quite awhile but I figured I would move them over to the main site because it will help submitters get the correct game more often. I only have about 350 backglass images so far and I will slowly be adding more. If anyone has an archive of backglass images, I will need both a 100x100 and a 300x300 version for each game. Contact me if you want to help make thumbnails. Cheers!

Serial number questions...
...can be submitted to me (Pistol Pete).  I usually respond within a day or two.

I'll answer questions about mismatches, formats, etc.  If your serial number doesn't match a mask, or if no mask is defined, let me know and I'll be happy to update the serialbot as necessary.

Thanks for your submissions and support!
