• Head to head beta testing today - UPDATE

    This had to be rescheduled - I will post an announcement, once I have a new date/time

    FarSight will be launching the new content for a beta and they need everyone involved in the game playing head to head matches so they can watch the server live.

    They'll also be taking any bug reports found while they're live so that they can try to get reproduction instructions for any bugs as they come up, which will make it much easier for them to fix them.

    It is important that everybody who takes part is joining the group chat on "The Pinball Arcade" group. You can find the group here:


    We can report bugs there or get instructions from the developers.
    Watch out for user name ^1[^4wrd^1]Str1x, he's our contact.

    Also he will tell in the chat if we have to sign in for a Beta, which would be:
    game library->right click on Pinball Arcade->properties->BETA->...

    In addition and just for fun you maybe wanna join Pinball Arcade - H2H,
    our Pinball Players voice channel for on Discord for H2H ;-)

      Well, I tried. Never showed anyone in the queue, but it would connect me to people. Problem is, it'd find the match and then not actually start the game. There's another try on 4/19 at 11am Pacific per FarSight, so hopefully it gets patched and will work. Oh beta.

    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.
