The Visual Pinball Gaming League

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.

    JustAnotherRat just to repeat I'm happy to help out with updating scores. I don't have the amount of time spare to actually play too much in tourneys lately. but I could always find time to help you out with scores or something else, if it means keeping this great comp going.

    You have...

    Mate this is a great product because its very welcoming of players of all platforms, fun, looks smick and is kept on the lowdown. It doesn't matter that its not PAPA. You can push your pinball as far or little as you want and enjoy a great community of people who are willing to share. Thats gold....

    It comes down to being able to make a post editable by all players. The table can only be edited if the post is in edit mode.funny about that

    No I don't think its a major change to what you have set up. The image of the score and comments attached are the same. The only difference is instead of putting the score as the first line of the post put it in a table in another post which would be the next one after the official score sheet....

    I'm open to suggestions and thoughts on this. Do you think not having people post directly in the thread will potentially mean that they don't visit the thread for banter?

    I'm trying to be mindful of not breaking what seems to be working just to make things easier for me....

    JAR all good mate. I appreciate you have life other than pinball and hopefully we can free that up a bit. I agree that going in and out google sheets is too clunky. i'm trying to hone to a system that isn't too onerous for contestants and make our life easier. What do you think about an editable table...

    ditto !! i was in the same boat. Great Job JAR ! it can get a bit difficult to find the time to play, let alone keep the scores updated

    For future VPGL's
    maybe use a online leaderboard? somehting like this ?

    Thanks heaps JAR for organising the latest comp. Work and family commitments got in the way a little and I missed a couple of deadlines. Still, had a lot of fun!...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've been busy with other things so have only just read this.

    Having people put their own score into the spreadsheet as well as uploading a photo to here, in my mind, is expecting too much of the participants. I don't want to turn anyone off the competition because...

    Hi All

    I just wanted to say thanks to all involved in keeping this great competition running. Also a big thank you to WOB for making the awesome keyrings, I received mine last week. It holds the key to my VPin and they look great.

    Oh cool if that helps I can do the scores but request that an experienced VP person oversees the comp. there are too many variables in machines and traps for a young pup like me. You need someone to keep it on the lowdown which I thought you did really well.
    just sounding out some ideas here because...

    To be honest, what you're offering with starting and closing games and updating scores is pretty much all there is to it.

    It's not that hard, it just sometimes takes more time than I have. I tend to be pretty busy and at times it all becomes a bit much. I love what the VPGL offers and for...

    I could update the scores if that would ease he load. Are there other major aspects that could be shared. Maybe selecting games and rolling out and closing games. That would free you up to play a bit and give you some breathing space to oversee the comp. did you take over from Jed. I read a few of...

    I'm happy to take help however it comes.

    Currently I put the scores into Google Sheets, I can give others access to the sheet so they can to but I think getting players to update their own is a bit much. If some people including yourself want to help I can give you access.

    JAR,
    i don’t have experience to run a gaming competition. I could help with updating scores if you needed but I think it needs an experienced VP gamer to oversee the comp. I also understand how demanding it is in running these things. I did the draw for a cricket competition and it is much more...
