Hello

The whirlwind project is ongoing and has a fairly good amount of code completed. I talked about it alittle on the upcoming podcast interview with the 'this flippin podcast' guys that should be out soon on iTunes. The next items to look at are more effects based as the rules are pretty solid now. Things like the match animation and game over attract lamp show with music etc. I also need to work out what kind of wizard mode should be in place.

It's true though that there is a lot on the table right now and i am working on multiple projects at once. This is me giving it 100% I am having a blast and getting great comments from people

Very cool project. I'm a software engineer and a Whirlwind owner. It was great looking through your code. I liked seeing the way that you had it all laid out and broken up.

If you ever make it available, I'd love to test it out.

Whirlwind, what an amazing table, my first and still my favorite I can't seem to ever finish it as it is let alone rewriting the whole game! When I got mine only about 50% of the lights worked but I got on that, rebuilt flips, leaf switches new cyls custom lighting, mirroring behind flippers, lightning pinblades mine even has the Cubs hat (ww fans know) subwoofer plastics and so on, and just yesterday I took another major step and got me a really nice like new clear coated in a fashion very similar to the factory diamond plate which we all know was just after this games birth, I am nervous as I have never done a full play field swap before, after that daunting task all I can think of it possibly needing next is this awesome rewrite! Love the BK multi easter egg,good stuff keep it comin!

I wonder what pat lawlorand pfutz think of this, must be a trip down memory lane for that whole team, its really an awesome project thanks for sharing
