  1. Just looking for suggestions for a Barcade competition i am thinking about running here on the South Coast of NSW once the virus restrictions lay off. (Location to be decided, but I'm looking at hosting at a Bar or Brewery)

     

    Looking for ideas on selection for 6 great, fun games for single player competition play, high-score based competition with a finals series of head to head playoffs.

     

    Thanks,

  2. What is VR like @Jed ? I want to go it when gpus are back to normal prices for driving sim and I guess pinball now. So I figure in a year or so.

     

    Hey mate,

     

    VR nowawdays is unbelievable. There are so many great games, for me it's where gaming is at now on PC. It's just so different to anything else, you really are in the game, not just looking at it.

     

    I've had gaming moments in VR that just bliss me out completely. I've not felt that kind of thing since the early days of Arcades !

     

    And yeah pinball. VPX in VR is insanely good. It just looks and feels so real ! The tables really come to life in a full 3 dimensional space, like you are standing in front of the actual game. It really is crazy how good it is!

  3. In case anyone else is a fan of amazing celestial happenings, here's a few pics I took of the recent Perigee / Blood moon.

     

    The last two are of eclipse totality - the beautiful Blood Moon

    I personally haven't had time... I hope to get some games in at some stage.

     

    I played STTNG first at PinfestI'm guessing 6 years ago. The one there was in great condition although it had a little issue when I played it. I did get to play the one at Pizza and Pinball a few times too.

     

    never played a real one before, but played the VP version heaps.

     

    the first game on the real STTNG managed 1B just from learning the game on VP

     

    But at Pinfest I've been smashed by the real versions of games I think myself pretty good at in VP... the shortest game ever at Pinfest was on that ridiculously hard Capersville. walked away quickly from that machine :lol

    Yes me too :cryat the moment due to techmallogickal issues i don't have a PC that can handle VP. I hope to have it all ship-shape and jump back in for the second half of the comp though. Bummed i missed playing STTNG. The only time i ever played a real one was at Pizza and Pinball in Newcastle in the back room about 5 years back.

    Do Mr and Mrs Staypuft ever fall down :D

     

    I remember when i first put in accelerometer nudge with the MS sidewinder, i had to remove everything that used to sit on top of my vpin... bang, crash.

  7. Since I got us off to a late start with this competition, I'm planning a relatively short turn around to start the next. Keep an eye out for the new competition soon.

     

    No rush JAR, if you do want a break to have more time to do other things, we'll still be here when you return :cool:

  8. Wow, what a finish, never seen a tie and countback before. Well done to Kane, very consistent play and 6 wins is a lot. Really nothing between Kane and JoeSoap right down to the wire in the last game too.

     

    Well done to all players. I had a lot of fun and played quite a few new tables.

     

    As always thanks to you JAR for running an awesome tournament.

    Sounds very interesting. Do you play with 3D goggles.

     

    using an Oculus VR headset, it is jaw-dropping how good VP tables are, rendered in a full 3D virtual space - like you are standing in front of/playing the actual machine. Unfortunately I can't play this game in VR cause i still can't get the score displaying. Still trying to figure it all out. Was playing Tron Legacy in VR last night and wow, just wow.

     

    With this game sometimes i feel like I'm flailing away and not hitting anything at all just keeping the ball alive. First game over 2M. hope to get to 3M by the end of the week

  10. Hi all,

     

    This is my first post...

     

    I've just started getting in to the whole console emulator world and I'm about to get my own cab for my birthday. It's challenging having to set up all the config but oh so worth it when it works.

     

    Can someone give some advice on a suitable hardware set up please? I don't have infinite resources and what I'm interested in is getting a decent selection of lightgun shooters running smoothly. I have a recoil aimtrak (trying to get another) and have dolphin working on my tablet. But it can't run the higher end stuff, naturally. I want something that can handle the resident evil chronicles games and the time crisis games on PS2 and potentially PS3. I assume the PS2 and 3 emulators can work with the aimtrak?

     

    Is the pc linked below capable of handling that level of emulation? Any advice is much appreciated.

    yes, this pc should very easily handle emulators. i'm no expert on ps2 and ps3 emulation, but have run them comfortably on an i5/970GTX/8GB system under Coinops, also xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Wii U, and Switch emulators, so that system you link should not have any trouble.
