Quoted from steviechs:Just found this thread, read the entire thing, and need an update. @swinks what's going on with your project?

as of a few days ago, I am out of work so priorities are a little different at the moment - I did see it coming about 3 months ago

well it has been a long time and rebooting this thread / game.

I almost game my Dukes of Hazzard ideas / concepts and rules to commercial project and whisky product and then something didn't seem right, alot of changes wanted to be made without letting me to fully cement the design and felt it was going to go a very different direction that I wanted to go.

I have finished mods now for a while and have a new job which is not creative so I want to do some creative things when I get home so rebooting a custom pinball which will involve this game and the custom Dukes of Hazzard game.

This element is - playfield tiles

I just designed this playfield tile that will sit into a machined recess into the playfield. This tile is a ball diverter that uses no motors and just physical ball interaction in which I took the idea from The Shadow pinball from the ramp but adding it to the playfield. I intend to do a few different tiles so a game design can be changed quickly with just 3 bolts or mix it up by rotating the tile to face one of 6 directions. With this tile the entry could be facing the flippers so to enter hit the ball from the flippers into the entry location and the ball can go into one of 2 directions then you could rotate 180 degrees so the ball enters from the top say from the pop bumpers and can go one of 2 directions. Allows for play variety or game customisation say in a commercial game.
