  4. Still accepting nominations. If you want a say in what gets played, get your nominations in
  5. Don't forget to get you game nominations in.
  6. Thanks mate. RusstyT has offered to help run VPGL 20 so we'll see where that leads up.
  7. I don't believe the Pinball Arcade has the provision to map buttons. Some people use work arounds such as https://www.x360ce.com/ but I never really bothered with Pinball Arcade as I found Visual Pinball to be much better. The Pinball FX games play better when set up right in my opinion too. If it's a commercially built cab, then no doubt they would have used licenced software and therefore you should have proper support
  8. Is your question related to Pinball Arcade the app or just virtual pinball related? There will be different methods for each application. Was it a second had cabinet that someone sold you? Did the seller have it working?
  9. Yep. Friday is setup day. Don't know specifics on what time we'll have access just yet.
  10. Hi Pinballers, Aussie Arcade welcomes to the Visual Pinball Gaming League with VPGL 20 - Ball Save. This tournament is the 4th of the year and part of the overall VPGL 2021 and all gamers worldwide are welcome to play. You can join in at any time and play. Competition: The player with the most points in this tournament will be the VPGL 20 champion. There will be 9 games played over 8 weeks, competing world wide on some of the most challenging and toughest pinball games of all time. 2 tables will be released at the start, then 1 table each week, with the final 2 tables released at the same time for the finale. Games are only open for 17 days each, so pinballer's must play their best in that time and post their scores before the game is closed. At the end of each VPGL, points will be accumulated for each gamer toward the Visual Pinball Championship of 2021 Scoreboard. The highest score after four VPGL's are completed will be the undisputed champion of Visual Pinball for 2021. Prizes: There are currently no prizes on offer for VPGL however if someone wants to offer something up, let me know. Point system: The incremental point system will be used for each pinball table. 1st place will earn 100 points, 2nd place 99 points, 3rd place 98 points and so on. All players will earn competition points for their scores. If there is a tie on the overall scoreboard, then a head to head game win count will be used to determine the final placings. For example, if two players tie for 18th place, then whoever has scored higher per game on a head to head basis will earn 18th place and the other gamer will earn 19th place. If there is a tie also on head to head game count, the gamer who has the highest accumulated game score points will be the winner. Overall Point system: The overall point system for VPGL 2021 will be that points are awarded to anyone finishing in the top 20 for each VPGL in the year. 25 points for first, 22 for second, 19 for third, 17 for 4th and then it decreases by 1 point per position down to 20th. If there is a tie after 4 competitions for the 2021 Champion, it will be based on a countback where the player with the most game wins will be the outright winner, if still even it will go on the number of second place and then 3rd places. If still even, it will be on total points awarded for placings from all games within 2021. If then the top players cannot be separated, it will be deemed a draw. Games: Tables are nominated by the competitors and sent by PM to the game master (JustAnotherRat). Tables must be selected from those readily available to Visual Pinball 10 (VPX) that do not require additional installation such as P-Roc to run (games using PinUp Player are accepted). Original tables are not to be nominated without prior approval (we've had problems previously with them not being competition ready). If there are multiple versions of the same table available then the players can choose to use whatever version they wish to use. The game threads often contain discussions around what version seems to be the easiest and/or best to play. Please nominate tables that you've played and tested (at least a little) so that we don't have broken games come up in competition The number of games that can be nominated by each competitor in VPGL 20 is 6 which are to be made up of 2 x EM, 2 x SS and 2 x DMD. (Alpha numeric games can be nominated as either SS or DMD games at the nominators discretion). The games to be played in the competition will be randomly drawn from the pool of nominations. The order of game play will be determined by the Gamemaster and each game will be released weekly for competition. If you would like to nominate games and have a say in what is played, please send them by private message (PM) to JustAnotherRat by midnight Sydney time on Wednesday 13th October 2021. The first two games will commence on Friday 15th October 2021. Games can be played on a cab or desktop and is all inclusive.

JustAnotherRat @kane@PPLBob@RusstyT@legin@Crakkers@mozzie1@JoeSoap@Bishop83@Capp@Yogo@skids@Jed@Almorte@tcholeaway@AxedBandit@redferatu@starcommand79@Wob@acejas@Kiltem Invite your friends and your foes, invite everyone that you knows(?) Let's see the year our with a bang and have the biggest competition yet. One final note. I plan on this being the last VPGL that I run. I'd love for someone to keep the competition going and will happily supply support whoever takes the lead as well as share spreadsheets etc. to make the competition run. I just don't have the time to run the competition anymore and I believe I'll be even busier next year.
  11. Yeah mate. First house move in 17 years so there was a fair bit of crap to move. Another move in about 12 months hopefully.
  12. Score now corrected (I think). Sorry for the mistakes, let me know if I've got anything else wrong.
  13. Game 9 is now closed. Congratulations to PPLBob for taking out the win with a massive 3 billion and also to legin for being the only other player to reach more that 2 billion. RusstyT took out 3rd place with kane, mozzie1 and Crakkers also smashing out billion plus scores.
  14. Sorry all. I'll fix this.up later, has been a crazy long weekend.
  15. VPGL 19 comes to a close and we have a new champion. Congratulations to PPLBob on taking out this league. kane is always there making players push harder to get better scores and managed to take 2nd place with RusstyT proving too good for the others taking a strong 3rd place. In the overall competition for 2021 supremacy, kane leads the way with 2 wins and a 2nd place giving him a current total of 72 points. In 2nd place and we see a 3 way tie with PPLBob, RusstyT and legin all on 53 points. There are plenty of opportunities for position changes in the last league of the year. Who will be crowned the 2021 champion?

  18. Great job. A little way to go to catch RusstyT and get a place on the podium though.
  19. With 8 games now closed, an error on the start date of game 9 sees us with just one game, and one week left of the competition. A few have already put up billion + games in Bride of Pinbot but who will take the win at the end of the week? At the closure of game 8 we see kane still leading the way but only by 2 points to PPLBob. RusstyT stands proud on the final step of the podium. Legin and Crakkers sit equal 4th and mozzie1 has a handy lead in the battle for domestic dominance over Mrs Moz.
  20. Congratulations to PPLBob who took out game 8 by a good margin over RusstyT in 2nd place and followed closely by kane in 3rd. Mrs Moz just chipped Crakkers down the placings but it wasn't enough to finish in front of mozzie1 or legin. Almorte popped in for an appearance to take points in 8th place.
  21. Curious to know. Did this end up selliing?
