Thank you Maceman! Really cool.gif table despite being such a simple pinball machine. The quality of the EM's coming out lately has been outstanding! The evolution of VP has allowed us to enjoy these type of tables to the fullest and all the tables (EM or otherwise) keep getting better and better. Thanks to all involved in making VP what it has become.

Edit: and thank you Unclewillie as well for this.

Yes, the other thing i forgot to mention is that there is a great difference in this SS version.

On my table at home here, both flippers operate together, that is, they are connected underneath by a metal rod so no matter which flipper button is pressed, both flippers go together.

On this table I had to make a decision for playability and more fun. Probably what i should have done is to make an EM 4 flipper version, and then an authentic 2 glued flipper solution smile.gif

I am glad you guys like it. It is really a very simple table,but like aldiode says, 'oddly entertaining' smile.gif


edit: btw- we have spend some nights playing this(the real table) trying to get the highest score, and i don't think it was much higher than 100,000. Super hard in that way as well.

Maybe on the EM all 4 flippers are controlled with 1 button too. Anyways on your version you could probably script a key to start the game with 1 button or 2 button play

Hey guys,

I just found this video of the table on youtube!! I don't know how to video the table, so this is great. It will at least give an idea to the original

I am normally one for authenticity, but in this case I am glad you made the decision to go for independently operated flippers smile.gif

I found a bug of sorts while playing this morning. Basically my ball went down the right Free Ball lane and down to the plunger. It rolled off left and fell off the plunger and got stuck though.

I am seeing some strange graphic problem with the flipper image overlay - all four angles are showing -- see attached picture.
I wonder how I can fix this?

Hi DB,


Are you playing with hardware rendering checked in the options?
