This one works on my laptop so I can play it whilst I'm away, happy days. My laptop is pretty old and it struggles with the bigger DMD style games.

Strategy: See ball, hit ball, hope

Hey JAR you seem to have put Kane's score to my name.

 

Do you reckon you could put Kane's score to my name too.............actually, if you could do it for every table that'd be great!

952 I think they were thinking we can get people’s coin really quick when this table was designed.

As a side note I just updated my machine to VP10.7, updated to Feezy,s 1.8 32 bit, and loaded up flex DMD. Ultra DMD was starting to get conflicts with Windows and flex DMD runs fine with deeper colours and uses more if the capability of my Pin2DMD. It looks so smick. Ive Played a few of JPs updated tables and I have to say virtual pinball has gone to a whole new level of realism and rediculously small file sizes to boot. The sound the physics, the 4K images, the ball shadows and reflextions are a whole new level and fun fun fun! Playing his Big Indian table was like playing a brand new spankin shiny EM machine. What legends. Exciting times ahead.

1,209 (OR 1169) I scored 1209 but the post it only says 1169 for some damn reason. It did that on a lower score game earlier as well. Can somebody tell me what the purpose of those white things that have "Flipper" printed on them - they don't seem to be very useful in this particular game.

If I had 5 donuts for every game I’ve played I could make a lot of Olympic Rings. Yep a big fat donut is all I’ve got to add today. If I owned this game I’d use it as a boat anchor:o:ocan I say that. Oops. Nah I’d donate to the Sally’s :unsure

I think they need to be a bit further apart too.........and I don't know of any other games that have outlanes halfway up the playfield!

1142........any chance we could wrap this one up early, so I don't have to play it again?

Edit: Those 10 point bumpers are fun though.

Thought I'd see why this game is frustrating people and about 2 games in it felt like the creators of this just wanted us to hate playing pinball.

 

I only played about 6 games, but that'll do me... I don't really have time to play right now anyway... I am hoping to find time to have a go on Theatre of Magic on my cab later.

Is there a bonus point for balancing the ball between Geneva and Hamburg?
