I've just recently discovered the wonderful world of Future Pinball and I just love it, it's super fun to make boards and with the help of the PC World tutorial I quickly learned the very basics dblthumb.gif

There is however one thing that escaped me: How to get the kickers to actually kick the ball out of the hole. Help on this subject would be great.

In the script:
CODE
Sub KickerName_Hit()
KickerName.SolenoidPulse()
End Sub

If you would like it to be real where the kicker waits until it pops the ball out, use a timer. When the kicker is hit, "KickerName_Hit" put the "TimerName.Enabled = True". Then on a new Subroutine, use the "TimerName_Expired", then "TimerName.Enabled = False" and "KickerName.SolenoidPulse". Hope that helps! If any more needed help, reply or look up the timer and kicker in the manual.

The manual doesn't have "Kicker12" or "KickerName" in it though!

One thing that I found really helpful when learning the scripting process was reading through the FP Script Guide which can be found under the Design Resources tab at the top of this site. It explains the basic principles really well and is very easy to understand.
