as usual ASM game entries are released one week prior to the party, so here already is one of them I find particulary nice :)

for the 1998 visuals!

I think it's nice, even if I don't usually know how to play pinball. It's all press buttons and once in a while ball goes to hole and I cannot reach.

piggie for supporting virtual pinball, apart from that it plays very very weird actually, also the GFX are an unholy mix of good (reflections, etc) and bad (overall design).

So the game stays true to its name.

1- Right control doesn't work in both Windows 7 and Java version. Tested key and right control does work in Windows.
2- Undocumented keyboard functions:
Camera = Press C multiple time.
Move the table around: Q-W-E-A-S-D
Alternate plunger: Enter

Windows 7 64 ultimate.

The physics behave really weird some times... :)

Good idea, needs more work. Will you work on it more ? Keep it up.
Table is a tad too tilted in the view. Otherwise rulez.

Good idea, but the design of the board is not optimal. (The flipper to upper left makes it very easy to loose the ball)

Baudsurfer: Unlikely. After spending three years of my free time programming this without any reward, there is just no motivation to continue the development any further. The reception hasn't been what I expected.

Ramon: I can't tell why right control doesn't work for you. The undocumented keyboard functions were to help development, but I decided to keep them in the release. Consider them as easter eggs or something.

las: I tried my best configuring Bullet Physics to work well with such high tempo. I'm satisfied with the physics except that I had to cheat with the "GOTO-loop" and that often looks strange. There are also few glitches.

toxie: Sorry about the bad graphics. I tried to compensate my lack of artistic talent with some nice shaders, but I guess that was not enough.

I think the amount of work to make it look more polished and coherent isnt that huge anymore.
Ok i cannot tell with the physics underneath but if you would team up with a gfx/rendering guy (and maybe a pinball pro who can help you a bit with smart camera/board layout) i think this could be improved by 100% with a reasonable amount of additional work.

The concept is too good to be butthurt now because people point out the obvious flaws in its presentation.

hm, no windows-without-installer version =/

I have created Inside Demoscene Pinball, a separate web page explaining the technology behind the game. It gives a deeper insight to the different features of the game than what is observable by just playing it.

neat idea

nice read!! And good that you could finish this big project all by yourself alone. Even if it took some years!

I guess it's just hard to make a pinball game that's fast paced, fun and addictive
Nice work though
