    Right, this is frustrating. I have managed to get the tables to display landscape, but my DMD is now showing as the default one, not my updated Freezy ones. What would I be doing wrong herE?

    Not really sure what you mean.  Send a pic, but you should be able to right click on the DMD and save position wherever you want.

     

    Here's what I managed to do with the two new tables so far.  Nothing great, but a start nonetheless.

  2. Think I'm done with Tales from the Crypt.  I can't even get a high score registered coz I can't get over 250M.  Best I've gotten is like 220M I think.

     

    Anyways, I'm going on holiday end of next week so I'm going to be out for a while.  But until then I'm going to be playing Spiderman and Metallica so hopefully you guys will join in for some high scores.

    Nah not DIY, I had a 24” job I bought from eBay, enjoyed it and wanted to go to the next level and found a guy on a pinball forum, who did pinball repairs & restorations and would do a vpin rather than scrap an original cab. He had one that was nearing completion, so traded my 24” against it, which he then sold on.

    Its a real cab, with real pinball legs, backbox & plunger and I’m pretty happy with it. It also has headphone and USB port on the front ,which comes in handy and an accelerometer for nudge functionality p. Doesn’t have no solenoids or feedback though, which is a bit of a shame.

     

    All in, I’m happy with it and really enjoyed it over the last couple of years.

     

    Playing on a cab is amazing I agree.  One thing I wish I asked for was a headphone jack on the front.  But I do have tactile feedback and it's incredible - feels like the ball is really rolling around the table.  I didn't get solenoids either, as I think my wife would've divorced me if I did :)

    The goalie is such a simple mechanic but oh man, there are games when you cannot get a shot in the goal. Got 3.4bn despite failing to beat Germany in the finals, ah man.

     

    Still loving this table, I’d actually consider buying a real one if only it wasn’t a bloody football theme 😑 maybe another Popadiuk table will scratch that itch.

    I'm getting close...

  5. I just started playing again last night, but for some reason have been drawn to learning Tales from the Crypt so focused on that.

     

    Gonna give World Cup a proper go tonight - wasn't really feeling Black Knight too much.

  6. Hey @Cheeko.  Really haven't had time to jump on my cab in a while so I haven't even touched BK I'm afraid.  World Cup Soccer is amazing, as is Simpsons.  Will check tonight whether I have a newer version of WCS.

  7. Haven't had a chance to Black Knight yet, but will do this weekend.

     

    Just wanted to post this epicness, especially as we've already played the VPW version of LOTR (probably in my top 5 games of all time):

    I was hoping to get an AtGames Legends Pinball machine at some point, however space looks to be an issue even though I got rid of my 4 player MAME cabinet.

     

    However it looks like AtGames may have a solution (skip to the 3 min mark)…

    If this comes to the UK I’ll be all over it!

    I would go for this instead personally - https://gameroomsolutions.com/shop/24-table-top-virtual-pinball-cabinet/

    It wasn't ghostbusters but I was watching a stream of another game that does that reverse the flippers gimmick and the dude just crossed his arms and kept racking up the jackpots. Was impressive

    Voodoo's Carnival - great original table which I think we should take on at some point.  Was that it?

     

     

  10. I have no real clue what I'm doing on this table, but I'm trying my best just to shoot the lit arrows and Slimer whenever he starts up.  Even made it to the Stay Puft Marshmallow mode but I'm not sure if that's the wizard mode.  Got a pretty decent score but for some reason when I was hitting the right flipper to save my initials it just entered AB on its own :S

     

    The main thing I can't stand on this table is the fact that the flippers are so far apart, so draining straight down the middle is a natural occurrence for me.

     

    @CheekoIf you found a decent tutorial please share it on here.

    I was about to post a picture of 127m to get us started, then this happened.

    If you fire the ball off the middle point of the right flipper it goes up the top ramp. Apparently if you’re consistent with this you just get multiball after multiball and super jackpots, I think my super jackpots were 72m each by the end. Absolute chaos.

    Holy smokes!!!  Need to get on this, but haven't had the time and won't have time till tomorrow.  That's a decent score for sure!  nice one.

     

    @Shaky burndid you sort it out?  Otherwise will have to share the gb_100 rom with you whenever I can get to it.

    The pc inside my cabinet doesn’t have wifi and i can’t get Ethernet to it, so when adding tables, I’ve used a laptop to download them onto a usb drive and then plug that into my cabinet and move them across. I am a bit of a muppet where anything  technical is concerned, so have kept away from messing with the software too much, in case I completely f*** it up😨

     

    Is there an idiots guide anywhere, to do the update?  And it doesn’t adversely affect any of your 10.6 tables etc?

    I transfer everything over USB to my cab as well.

     

    Download this - https://github.com/vpinball/vpinball/releases/download/v10.7.0-367-e242d7c/Main.Download.Minimal.-.VPinballX7_Minimal.zip

     

    And then overwrite all the files into your Visual Pinball folder.  Create backups of all your existing files if you're worried.  It's very hard to mess it up don't worry.

    That’s great, thank you 🙏 . Will it work on 10.6 vpx ?( I don’t  have the 10.7 beta installed )

    Not sure.  But why don't you just upgrade to 10.7?  It's not in beta anymore and there's a full release.  Just overwrite the files - it's very simple to do.  I'm on 10.7.1

  14. I'll have to admit defeat this week.  Can't break my 333M on LW3 and I think I'm done with it for a while.

     

    I have a nice surprise for you guys.  One of my favourite pinball tables is Ghostbusters by Stern but it's always been a bit dodgy on VPX.  Firstly, it uses the rom from Farsight's Pinball Arcade version (which is technically illegal) so it's never been readily available on VPF or VPU.  And secondly, the physics were terrible.

     

    I reached out to a creator on Facebook who created a VPW-like recreation and he shared it with me in private and it plays fantastic.  So now I'll share it with you and I suggest we do this one this week.  What do you guys think?

     

    Here's the link to download: https://we.tl/t-Kf61G925VZ

     

    Enjoy.

  15. Damn!  Nice one Cheeko.  Need to get back on it tonight then and try to reclaim.

     

    In the meantime, check out what I was playing yesterday - an official Data East table was made for Aaron Spelling (the guy who created a bunch of shows like Dynasty, 90210, etc) which is actually the exact same layout and rules as Lethal Weapon 3 but it's got different art, Rom and DMD :)

    This is the best I can do atm, just snagged the GC score and got to one of the wizard modes and then drained the last ball when I had a tri-ball queued up,,,,bah.   I find I lose most balls down the side outlanes, after they have been catapulted  in there by the slingshots.
