After playing a couple of games it is easy to tell how much thought and energy you poured into this labor of love. Some very solid design mechanics, beautiful art on playfield and backglass. With your line about the scripting I expected much less from the scoring, but a fair amount is complete.

I am quite sure a few FP authors will offer to aid you with your vision, and I hope you'll allow that to happen sza. This is a standout as an original and deserves that final layer of polish.

Very nice work! I love the wide layout. Very nice graphics and sounds on this original.

I find it plays a bit better at an 8 slope.

Looking forward to any updates you may have for this one in the future. Thanks!

Without a doubt, that's a fantastic looking table. It's like a merge of 70's Gottlieb with early 80's williams, the art layout looks totally freakin' professional! Well done sir.

Thanks for all encouraging comments.

Silver Surfer comic books are really full of images that were simply made for 70s/80s pinball machine. First of all most of the time SS is on a move just like most of characters on the playfield should be. Style of artists from Marvel creating Silver Surfer comics in 60 and 70, very closely resembles pinball art of late 70 and early 80 of artists like Gordon Morison, and Kevin O'Connor. They are among my top favorite artists, second only to unique late 60 early 70s “popart meets Picasso” style of Jerry Kelley and Christian Marche.


I posted a small update. Thanks to your remarks the slope is now adjusted to 8 for better speed, + some minor scoring improvement + info document added containing rules and information on what is missing in scripting in case somebody would like to play with it or help finishing it

Cheers, sza

If you have an ATI card check the thread on the drivers.
