• The Getaway: High Speed II now available!



    The Getaway: High Speed II™ has just been released for Steam (Mac/Windows) and Google Play, Amazon and Ouya!

    iOS is delayed but should be released in the coming days.

    The Getaway: High Speed II™ (1992): is the spectacular sequel to High Speed™, released in 1986 and also designed by Steve Ritchie. Players shift into high gear as they start Multi-Ball by running red lights and then collect Jackpots to escape from the pursuing police. A standout feature on this table is the Supercharger magnetic ball accelerator, which spins balls at dizzying speeds for wild excitement and scores! An actual gear shifter on the front of the cabinet launches balls onto the playfield and shifts through features during game play. 13,259 units of this table were produced.

      Where's the key to shift into higher gears in the video mode? The plunger button shifts into lower gears only and the mouse doesn't shift up in video modes. You can't really do the video mode properly without putting it in 5th gear, IMO. Maybe it would work with a controller, but I can't find a way to do it with the keyboard in video mode (the only time you need to shift into a higher gear in the game as far as I know).

      Shifting up is accomplished with the 'extra' action button (ie. the same that activates Magna Save in Black Knight 2000 or performs the cheat in JackBot). It's the quote key '
      (next to the Enter key).

    Where have I been?

    It's been a while since the unfortunate implications about Pinburgh. I've long since been better about this situation, and recently I've been able to travel a whole lot more, especially to places...

    Man, I haven't messed with VP in a LONG time. I still have an ancient version installed on this laptop (which is 7 years old) that I transplanted from

    About that skill shot

    This is most likely the hardest wizard goal from all the tables in season 7! Shooting skill shots on this table is very tricky and there doesn't seem

    Yep, the emulator that goes hand and hand with Visual Pinball, VpinMAME, is actually based on a really old version of MAME. There are other WMS pin ROMs

    It's probably for Visual Pinball, as you have to download not only the table, but sound and ROM files.

    Restore save data not working properly

    Can you both send me a message with your FarSight User ID. I'm asking the team to look closer into the remote data that's being saved. We've tried it
