Virtual Pinball purchased for £2100, its been made using a real fish tales pinball cabinet , since purchase i have broken the dmd so will need replacing with a lcd screen or another pin 2 dmd or screen of your choice (normal dot matrix size it has the following
42" lcd playfield
32" Backglass
i7 8GB NVIDIA GTX 960
Flipper feedback
virtual pinball plunger (ie pull it back in degrees like a real plunger)
Loaded with 213 tables but since the dmd broke only about 40 of them work for you to play the ones that do are brilliant ( 6 of those are differant types star wars ) ( all 213 tables load ok but looks like they need credits putting on to load ball into shooter lane)
Brilliant sound system with sub woofer .
Has normal pinball coin door and service buttons
Has usb plug in control unit inside coin door for key board and mouse.
Really needs someone who knows how to operate the computer system loaded on this machine ideal for someone wanting to make his first virtual pin as its already well made all wiring is neat and inside trunking in the cabinet its all there but need tweeking.



cheers
Keith

Hi Keith, if you would like to fix/put a replacement screen in there may be expertise on the forum that could talk you through it. I assume if it worked you'd want to keep it?

Nothing wrong with a Doro, if it`s good enough for Captain Kirk it`s good enough for me !

Anyway i hope someone on the forum can help you repair it as i am sure you would prefer to keep it if working.

Hi thank you but no ,its as heavy if not heavier than a normal pin ,and after struggling to get my Dr Who downstairs i realize my pinball days are over . Its a shame but i dont even want to learn about these computerised pins they are so differant to the old Bally/williams that i am used to . I would not mind swapping it for a Gottlieb Sing along but that would have to stay downstairs in the garage, (but thank you for trying to help)

Pics added just found out it works fine with FX pinball games it has loaded on , the scoring etc jumps up onto the main back glass display and acts as the dmd ,so i would imagine a boffin could do this to all the other games if you did not want to add a normal dmd (but what do i know proberbly totally wrong) anyways like i said it works fine with all the FX games
cheers

You are quite correct, a PC monitor hooked up as a third screen acting as a DMD would also do. Each emulator will have it's own DMD position, once it's configured in each all will be well

Hi Colin yes it has the solenoids on the flippers they can be turned off but sound realistic, just finding out about it a bit more it has about 6 differant versions of Star Wars the sound system is brilliant when turned up

Now playing over 60 games ,been told its an easy (but lengthy ) fix to put in a lcd screen in place of dot matrix panel or shift scores etc onto the back box screen , i would get this fixed as i am getting to like it but the Main Man on these things is way to busy, final price absolute bargain at £900,

Thanks Ryan & Ash yes good bargain but the buyer needs knowledge of these things i had one guy waste 5 hours of my life i wont get back before finally saying i really dont know anything about computers. The second experiance was just as bad these are great things when fully working and admire you guys that know how to build them from scratch (and as you say Ash parts cost you more than this) 60 plus games work but needs attention to make the other 180 games work.

thanks for your kind comments chaps
cheers

Glad to hear the sale went well Keith ( apart from the loss of money of course) but hang on in there.........you are never too old for another pinball . Get Gail to help get one in and set up ! If i can still do it so can you...............then again i`m just a spring chicken at (nearly) 61 years !
