    Quoted from mystman12:

    A bunch of old DSiWare randomly vanished from the 3DS eShop today. Just posting a reminder to buy Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon if you have a 3DS before it randomly vanishes as well. The game is an underrated gem, one of my personal favorite pinball games ever.

    is this only available if you go into the eshop via the 3ds, not just nintendo online via my computer?

    Planning on listing my VPcabs Vertigo soon. It has an upgraded CPU, GPU, and memory. It is running 199 VPX games and 62 arcade games. Looking for 2500.

    While I would agree, the upright is amazing for saving space. It would be the perfect vpin for an apartment or dorm if space was super limited

    My ad is up for the vertigo.

    Other - For Sale
    I have a very cool VPCabs Vertigo System available. For those that have not seen one of these it has a vertical screen and a top screen...”

    Have you tried pin-up popper? Seems to be a bit easier with the b2s files and media files attached to the download.

    Possibly, it's definitely still there via the 3DS.

    Hi Virtual fans! 

    For many months I have been quietly assembling a homebrew VP machine with a custom Dragons Lair theme. We decided to go the VP route for two reasons. First, we have 6 and 8 year old children and the concept of having access to hundreds of different tables, on a single machine, was more appealing to the kids. Also, as young as they are, they are already more attune to electronic applications versus children of our generation, who were mechanically drawn to traditional PB machines, since that’s all we knew back in the day. Second, there was already someone pursuing a traditionally designed machine, so we wanted to create something different to respect their unique effort.

    The process took coordination amongst more than a dozen different vendors and many months from start to finish. Patience and trust were very challenging at times, and we did almost get burnt bad by one vendor along the way. We’d strongly caution anyone thinking about pulling together such a project, from a scratch concept, to think long and hard about it upfront because in the end it will be a labor of love, but will cost much more than a standard machine, traditional or VP, and you will undoubtfully encounter cost overruns and delays along the journey – all of which no one else can or will likely ever truly appreciate, or care to compensate you for should you wish to eventually sell your custom machine down the road. For instance, hundreds of hours were spent locating skilled artists, having them create artwork, tweaking, measuring, formatting, reformatting…on and on, and with multiple vendors at that, each with their own area of skill and expertise.

    As a kid in the 70s-80s, I believe the ultimate goal was reached and the end result is rewarding. We still have to pinch ourselves walking by the machine time and again. All the small custom touches you will see in the photos below really set this machine apart, and having a high quality build is icing on the cake.

    Along the way I reached out to the person attempting to build a traditional DL PB machine several times FWIW, requesting we coordinate projects and help one another. Unfortunately, we never heard a peep back, so we can only assume they abandoned their project since their facebookpage went dead? At the end of the day we wish them well and hope above all else they are ok!

    Should anyone on Pinside ever wish to undertake a similar DL project we would be honored to share tips, ideas, things that worked and things that didn’t, and even consider helping a friend out with vector art for their homebrew machines since we basically started at ground zero and to be perfectly honest, that was one of the most painfully time consuming and costly portions of the project. If that’s you…don’t ever hesitate to send a PM.

    That said, enjoy the images and we wish everyone a happy and healthy 2021!!!
