    Hello,

    I’m Daniel and live in the Netherlands and use the translate button to read this site. Thought a time of writing on this forum, because it’s Italien. Nothing wrong with that of course, but don’t want to intervere with the meaning of this site.

    Want to say this is a great looking site, with beautifull VPX tables i want to try when my cab is finished. I’m building one with my brother with 3 monitors and some feedback toys.

    If it’s not appritiated that posts are in English, i will shut up and only learn and read πŸ˜‰
    On mosts internet sites i’m using a nickname daans.

    :bye:

    Yeah some point to celebrate πŸ™‚
    The cabinet build is at the point i’m installing the VP software. Had major stuttering with my Windows 10 installation, so changed back to Windows 8.1 Pro.

    The tables i tested run very good. The first table i tried was Cactus Canyon off course πŸ™‚

    tonight i’m gonna go further with the software.

    Also, when in the pinball flow, i bought i real table to have a touch-up. Galahad from Bally.

    So i don’t have to think what to do with some spare time πŸ˜‰

    I have to finish it, but it’s playable.
    Some things to be done:
    – lockbar, siderails, glass, ledbar, some black striping at the casing of the televisions, etc, etc

    I’m getting further πŸ™‚
    I will make some new pictures soon.
    Finshing the ledbar, added the lockbar, siderails, glass etc.
    Then i have to spraypaint it to repair the scratches i made by mounting/unmounting stuff all the time.

    To be continued πŸ™‚

    Hello,

    It’s been a while after my last post. I thought it’s time to do a update:
    The pinball machine is finally finished :yahoo: (for so far you can say that with all ongoing development).

    I attach some photos to illustrate.
    The photos will speak for them selves, but some interesting points/highlights.

    – The lockbar i used was a second hand one, which a friendly welder make it the right width. Yes you see it when you look close, but it’s really worked out fine!

    – When i going to make an other one (yes have a old cabinet waiting to be reincarnate) i use less buttons. I lot i don’t use right now, so less is more for in my case πŸ™‚

    – The shoot rod, or what’s his name. I didn’t got it working fine for lots of tables. Such a waste of money for my concern πŸ™ Also had a opto flipper board. Very annoying always the flipper sounds. Got rid of it to πŸ˜›

    – Cut the vinyl stickers myself. It’s basic, but it will do.

    Almost everyone that’s came to my place are very impressed. Also about the tables and gameplay. So i want to thank you all :mail: :good:

    I can’t sit still, so i have a few new projects under construction/on my list:
    – digitize a existing pinball cabinet
    – make a arcade game like ‘neuronrace’ game. A lot of buttons with lights; hit them with light on, +1, hit those with light off, -1. 2 player
    – make a arcade cabinet. Have a ‘kit’ lying around.
    – make a arcade cabinet containting arcade games, DDR (stepmania) en a shooting game. Bought EMS topguns, MISTAKE, chines rubbish. Going to buy some ultimark light guns (some day)
    – going to make some DDR danceplates (also for kids). Have some metal ones and found a plan to make them yourself.

    All those i want to rent to other people (have a small bouncecastle/party rent company, think the arcade things are a good addon).

    So that’s enough writing.

    This week i started with sanding my ‘spare cabinet’ to do another digital pinball cabinet.
    It’s an old Williams Honey. (the other cabinet i posted before i have sold completely a few months ago. it turned to be ‘to OK’ to break down). Sold al the real pinball stuff that was inside of the Williams cabinet, so the cabinet turned out to be free πŸ™‚ That i call a bargen πŸ™‚ I digitised the cabinet artwork in Illustrator so that when all cabinet is restorated and painted i can make the original artwork again.

    I try to use an old computer i have laying around (dual core 2.4 ghz) and bought a second hand CPU (GT730) for about 40 euros. The hd is an ssd 150 gb, that was waiting in the pc i had laying around (forgot i had it).

    I let you know if the pc configuration work. Is there a topic where we can keep track of this information? If not, maybe a good idea? It must be very strait forward, so we can use it as a reverence later.

    Talk to you later.

    Daans
