We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Quoted from Whysnow:

not even close TBT.
IMO it has to do with the strength and composition of the original materials. Metals were made harder, the wood is harder, etc... This is a physical machine where we are translating a electromagnetic pulse through wire wound coils that transfer energy through those original more durable parts and pf to smack that ball around.
The remake is an emulation in all regards and plays quite a bit different. Between the emulated software, softer metals, and softer wood, the physical game just is not the same. Play a nice restored original and a remake that have been tuned in by the same tech and do it side by side. Everyone will see and fee the difference.

This perfectly explains why I like the older games are better. Pinball machines should be robust in every way possible IMO.
