Jammasized: Flash Gordon
JustAnotherRat: Fish Tales
Matty_g_8: Cirqus Voltaire

Well, ya know I'm always keen.

Just when I got Brads new pack and started to do some updating, the cab pc now wont boot up. So looks like DT for me again.

Dammit, there's no desktop for Spirit of 76....

You can adjust the backdrop setting to play in desktop mode thus..

It plays, though needs a lot more work to create a proper DT version.

I'll jump in as well. I think I can manage the time frame you are suggesting OK!

I'll join in and play, not sure how much time I'll dedicate to it... so many toys, so little time.

Good stuff everyone. Stay tuned for more tables as they trickle down. ...

Cool, I like this one too.

This has given me a thought.

Everyone that wants to play gets to choose one table that has not been played before.

The most free range VPGL yet :)

Welcome ! VPGL4 will start very soon, I just have to formalise the posting of the tables.

tables will be posted up for play as soon as all players have nominated one table of their choosing. I'll keep Flash Gordon as my choice :)

I'd probably be keen. The new longer format will probably make it easier for me to play some games over a few weeks. Plus I can add any new tables I don't have. I even have button nudge on my cab now so no excuses! :)

Mate same reason I started up the comp again, need a reason to play mine again and get me away from Project Cars :)

That's 3 tables so far... The first post in this thread holds the tables nominated to date. Once everyone has put a table forward I'll start kicking them off.

make sure it's a game that can played in Desktop and Full screen in VP9.x

Dedrok
11th June 2015, 02:53 PM
Maybe I should be barred from choosing tables :lol.

I will have to have a look through and find something. There was one I really enjoyed on the cab a few weeks ago, but what was it ? :unsure

CruiserMan .... get in on this if you are able.

JustAnotherRat
11th June 2015, 03:15 PM
I'll put forward Fish Tales... partly because I want to see what others get on this and partly because it is a table that really got me hooked on pinball and I have never got a decent score.

MrMaloo

Yeah I'm in . This new format may suit me better as my chance to get on my PC is limited these days .

I'll have to go back through previous comps to see what tables have already been played and then pick a different one to nominate .

You need a fortress of solitude....

would be great for you to play again - someone needs to challenge Dedrok ;)

These are the tables so far.... keep them coming..

once all players have posted a choice I'll create new comp threads for every table.

Kane: Junk Yard
StevOz: Big Brave
Jammasized: Flash Gordon
JustAnotherRat: Fish Tales

To make a selection easier I've made a list of tables already played in VPGL's 1,2,3 in the first post of this thread, that can't be nominated again.

Dedrok

I'm trying to narrow it down and am leaning towards Bally Harley Davidson among a couple of others.

I'll get back to you. I left my list at the comp venue.

There's some pretty cool tables people have nominated so far :023:

I'll nominate CONGO please Jamma .

Jed
15th June 2015, 12:22 PM
ok MrBungle stuzza Dedrok what table would you like to add to the list ?

With your three selections That will give us 9 tables to play over about a 3 month period.

If we don't get a 10th player then I might round out the selection with a 10th table chosen from a VPForums new release or something.

Dedrok

Jed
16th June 2015, 01:29 PM
Done and Done.

Ok I've requested that a new section be created for VPGL4 and once done Iwill post up the tables into there.

Still after a 10th table, but might leave that in case someone else wants to join in and noiminate a table.

This is the lineup that will all be played over a three month period. PLay any table, any time and post a score.

Junk Yard
Big Brave
Flash Gordon
Fish Tales
Cirqus Voltaire
Congo
Harlem Globetrotters
NBA Fastbreak

Don't worry mate, I've been extremely slack too only put up a few scores, due to other stuff going on keeping me too busy.

Speaking of which, I'm looking at closing off VPGL4 before the end of year.

Yeah I think I preferred the one to two games every few weeks. Then I would actually play it and learn the rules ect

Yeah, I think that was a better format too.

Resurrect it In the new year sometime for VPGL5 perhaps :)

Dedrok
30th November 2015, 03:38 PM
Yeah, I find a tight deadline makes you actually have to play and post a score. Even if it's only 1 or 2 games that you get time for.

JustAnotherRat
30th November 2015, 03:40 PM
Yep. I think everyone is agreeable on this.

Hey everyone,

Just some notice that I'll close off all the comp tables by Sunday 20th December. So you got 2+ weeks to post or improve your scores.

I'll put up a general ladder update soon so there's a feel for the overall standing. (That's another casualty of running all tables at once, hard to keep an overall ladder going)

If anyone is keen for a VPGL5, then I reckon back to the old format of 1 table p/2 weeks sometime in the new year, if that's agreeable.

Did you close this one off? I'm keen for a VPGL5 and in the old format :)

no, unfortunately the holiday season / time of year and family commitments etc got the better of me.... but it's on my 2do list, just is a lot of tidying up to do, I need to allocate a decent chunk of time to get it done, haven't had much of that lately..
