It's been a few months since my last post and I created another game..Oregon State Pinball. Take a look at my youtube video:

Someone needs to retheme a Poopy. I never found one that was fun because the flippers are always weak but playing it on a VPin is kindof fun. The theme suck royal but if someone could retheme it and maybe add some better features it would be cool. Oh, and get rid of the toilet.

I'm having a hard time exactly knowing where to start- I WANT to create a new table, based on the honey pin, Williams EM 1972, I like that it has a fairly complicated A-B, A covered Kick hole, Independently switched bumpers, a Post, and a gate!

I'm not sure I want my table to have ALL of that, for instance, I would like to replace the post with one of those single rebound posts like on Meteor. I think a ramp would be cool - especially on a pin scored with EM reels.. Sort of Anti-Retro-post-Modern.. I do not like the fact that it has not end of ball bonus, but neither does my Gay 90s.

I feel like if I take all the parts off the play field, and then try to attach them to my new play field, in the new places, the whole thing will likely end up a basket case. I doubt I would ever get it to work properly. I play that scene from Spock's Brain, where Bones is saying, "It' so simple a child could do it!" then later on is saying, "What was I thinking?! I'll never get this all together correctly!!". after I get all the playfield objects off the old playfield. It all seems so simple to say, "I'm going to print out the templates, placed into your favorite cad program, then, plot it to actual size, trace and Cut the holes, and put the objects on." However, I'm guessing even with those proper templates for kickers, pop bumpers, etc, printed out at full scale, overlaid and traced onto the board it's just not that easy. Wiring, interference with other objects on the back side of the board, etc, are all going to play into the practicality of implementing any plan. The time to find out that your kicker is not going to work in that spot, because it's solenoid is in the place where the pop bumper is, I'm sure there will be all sorts of issues of this nature. I guess, a person has to start somewhere though. I'm working on

If the whole thing went awry, I'm only out $35- and it'd make a nice coffee table!

Bought a decent shape spirit of 76 the other day.
After getting her running reliably I am re-theming her to be a 1920's-1950's vintage era Harley Davidson Pinball.
Game play: Collect all the motors, kickstart the panhead, kickstart the knucklehead in only 4 kicks (dropdowns), Wall of death, flatrack racing, and land speed record, ride pan, ride knuck, take a gypsy vacation

Graphics are done and proofs are printed and sized, final prints will be ready shortly. (Pics are of proof ink mode)
I'm going to cut out plexiglass with a jig saw and put inkjet viynl over that and a couple playfield stickers basically.

That is awesome!! Great artwork and design. On the video, you just...could not...hit that...spinner. Hahaha. Great job on the pin man. Why the surge protector inside the cab? Is that jacked into the service outlet?
