Vpgl5 ?

Collapse

The Visual Pinball Gaming League (VPGL) is a fun, all inclusive way to play Visual Pinball games with like minded people. The players nominate the games to be played and they are selected at random with a balance of EM, SS and DMD games played throughout each competition.

It's a great environment to hone your pinball playing skills learning and sharing how to maximise scores and understand rule sets.

  • Vpgl5 ?

    If there's enough players interested, it would be good to start afresh, new year, new comp, but going back to the old style - 1 game per 2 weeks of play per table.

    I'm not sure about format, and VP10 has thrown another possible option in there too. though at this stage, vp10 seems to be quite demanding on a system, so not everyone can run it well. So maybe vp9, pm5 ? thoughts ?

    I am keen to play but my computer doesn't handle VP10 (stutters badly).
    Old format is preferred for me.

      I'd say it's all in fun and open it up to any title VPX, VP9 or VP9 pm5, just show your ss and score and version used. VPX tables even running at full clip here are not any easier by any means, though obviously if a title is not available for all VP versions it should not be considered as it was.

      That said perhaps if a VPX version is not available then it could still be included...I can run all VP versions, they are not mutually exclusive.

      I have a feeling many VPX releases have already been contested and some VPX releases of late may not be available in earlier versions , though I'm cool with that.

        Not sure if I am able to commit to the full run, but am keen to start off if I'm able to.

        And yeah my system cant handle newer stuff.

          Maybe like [MENTION=626]StevOz[/MENTION] says, throw it open to all versions, as long as a table can be played by all. That would leave people to choose whatever version they like.

          In which case I nominate:

          The Walking Dead (pm5)
          Metallica (pm5)

            I have been playing those 2 more than anything else lately. Not doing well on Metallica at all although I am learning some rules.

              There's an updated TWD coming out soon with a fully 3D modelled well zombie and prison zombie. Reckon it will be a great table in a couple more revisions, is already fun just needs some cosmetic work.

                My system cant handle sam games either. It used to be loadable but not really playable.

                  I'm keen. Can't commit but like the format. Loved the comp between members and trying to beat them.

                    Is a virtual pin required for this or can it be played via a keyboard?
                    I don't have either at the moment but am keen to play.

                      hey there,

                      Open to everyone, computer and keyboard, cabinet, tablet... just about playing some (virtual) pinball for fun competition, in a very casual and slightly disorganised way

                        Excellent. Looks like I have some reading and downloading to be done tonight.
                        Any friendly souls here want to steer me in the correct direction?

                          Is there a list of already played VP titles, so that we know not to nominate a title already previously contested?

                              Thanks for the list Dedrok...

                              In which case I'll nominate Dirty Harry and for an EM change of pace Pyramid.
