happy to see this come up, i've not played it at all apart from testing it worked on my cab.

i played the real one in Melbourne at Bartronica last year, it was fun but Game of Thrones next to it was much kinder to me.

JAR would definitely have this in his collection so you'll be fine. For those haven't played it this one is an original that uses custom DMD programming cause spike isn't emulated yet. So so you need the UltraDMD that comes with the game dumped into your tables folder.

Shit, just lost an hour befiore my eyes. would have been good if it was still only 2am :confused:

Dedrok I did give you this one. I made sure I gave you this as I knew it was nominated. ;) ... I can't remember if you have Ultra DMD installed though.

....which is fairly important :)

Yep with all JP's originals, his UltraDMD is only just the score.

Other people's originals like javier's Goldorak, Scott's Stranger Things, Tom Tower's Champions league, all have custom animations for the UltraDMD as well, some pretty impressive stuff!

my first couple of games of this I barely made 5 million. then suddenly i was getting 4-ball multiball, and having some fun, this plays pretty well.

Apart from when it ripped me off an extra ball, was lit, got the hole, no EB!

I would have beaten that if I got to finish my game with all of the extra balls I had collected and still in multiball on top of multiball. :laugh:

Maybe I should turn off Ultra DMD for this???

Your machine was very nice JAR! Exciters will finish it off nicely. I took a picture of you playing GB, but both mine and Mr Bungle's phones were killed by a 7k crossing of treacherous waters in Lake Macquarie in a tinny. That was a hell ride.

Really good to meet you all, Pinfest was great! so many fantastic machines this year I had never played woz, hobbit, Stern Star Trek, or of course HHGTTG! even managed to find a bug for kress to investigate later...

only had one game of thunderbirds, i think it lasted about a minute and a half :confused:

2x and 3x standups at the left ramp.
Lit from skillshot or left captive balls.
Can be stacked together for 6x and can be re hit to restart timer, ala AC/DC and Metallica.

I also think scolari bros add in another one if lit.

Yes skids kicked our arses that game!

Every time I was doing a circuit of the room seemed someone was playing your vpin, I saw people wanting pictures of themselves with it, etc.

How was your machine and virtual pinball generally received ? It's a hard sell in a room full of 70 machines, and some of the best AAA games you can find.

This year's Pinfest was my first time playing games like The Hobbit, Attack from Mars, Addams Family, Stern Star Trek, to name just a few that I've only played in virtual form before.

Star trek was an absolutely beautiful game, it sparkled. For sheer good looks that was probably the best I played. (it kicked my arse though sadly)

I'd never seen a pin before with PDI glass, that stuff is pretty amazing!

It kept busy throughout the whole weekend which was good. I have all but lost my voice from talking to people about it. A lot of people said that they had never seen anything like virtual pinball before and were positive about it, others said that they had played virtual before and they don't like the flipper lag and then played mine and commented on how it doesn't have any. There were also a lot of people that when they started their game said that it didn't look right but by the time they played a couple of balls found that they had adjusted to the 2D images and really enjoyed it. A lot of people "came up with the idea" that they could be used to learn the rules for real pinball's which is obviously valid. The kids that played it all kept coming back and were the ones that understood how to work the menu etc. with very little help. A few people snubbed it and wouldn't play as it isn't real but overall the feedback was positive. I wasn't sure how the other contributors would see it, but overall they were very positive about it as well.

It was the first chance for me to play some of the tables as well... I love Pinfest as an event up until this weekend as a guest and this weekend as a contributor, such an awesome weekend filled with sensational games and all of the contributor's (that I met at least) seem to be genuinely nice people.

It was the first time I'd seen PDI glass as well, you can't even see the stuff, it's like playing with the glass off but I am not sure yet if I like it or not.

Does anyone know how the negative scoring works on this game? I just played a game and the score showed a minus in front of it (I have seen this before) and thought that it was just a glitch and the scoring would go upwards and the minus would disappear. I did manage to score points and count back to zero and keep going but managed to have the score go back into negative again... 3 times in fact. I ended the game with a dismal score of 882,250 but that is because my score kept going up and down.

Is there something to avoid or it removes points? Maybe I should read the rules.

Me either. till tonight i found that just getting the storage facility multiball continually then stacking other multiballs on top can net you some decent points.

I wish extra ball would pay though. I must have got 7 extra balls this game and not a single one paid :realmad:
