EM Holes Passing Balls

I remember several EM machines that passed a ball from one eject hole to another in rapid succession . Can anyone tell me names of machines that had this interesting feature?

No Ali is an SS machine and although it does have a unique triple hole kicker with a single triple claw, it only kicks the ball downward onto the pop bumpers.

I know Ali is SS, but I thought I remember it doing something like that. I must be getting old. I do remember an EM doing that, but can't remember it's name.

Kings and Queens (1965) had a row of four; hit the left (Aces) one for ten points plus ten for each Ace you'd hit, and the ball would kick to the next (Kings) one, score in a like fashion, get kicked to the next (Queens) and then to the right (Jacks) which then kicked down to a flipper (I think they alternated if you repeated the sequence) so you could try it again...and again...and.....

For some reason, going off post to risk catching a dose of :appl: never appealed to me, so I played a lot of Kings And Queens :pinball:

The Gift that Keeps On Giving

Thanks... Kings And Queens is one of the games I was thinking of...WOW... And about the :appl:. The :appl:would make for a night you could not soon forget.

There are at least two more games that had the "Pass A Ball" feature. I think I saw(A puddy Cat?) the machine I remember playing in the movie 'Tommy'. I think the kick out holes were in an arc and closer to the top of the playfield. I believe there was a flipper machine from the 50's that had a column of kick outs that passed the ball down the side of the playfield. I'm gonna keep looking for these machines and maybe some rubbers...C_S

    I was afraid to do this but I believe if you unapprove files, they just are like a soft delete, still there but not visible..

  • @ Ike Savage:
    you're talking about FTP on uploads.PN still?

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No, the archived category in resources..
    Ike Savage said:
    I could see removing some resources and/or resource folders, if that helps. that VP PhysMod stuff is probably not useful any more, etc
    Were you talking about the ftp subdomain? :wave-nerd:

    so you're were talking about the archived originals? on the positive side, that stuff probably doesn't take up much

    where is the unapprove option, anyway? is that a super mod thing or something from the admin panel?
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    oh wait, I see it
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    true, but they could also be invisible to users and perhaps allow the category to be removed
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Don't know, do know that if you delete a category all files would also be removed so that's bad,

  • @ Ike Savage:
    seems like we discussed it in some length at one point and came up with the current arrangement, but I don't have a strong opinion on that stuff. the one thing I do like is that I can clear out weaker tables from the main section without deleting them
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Sounds fine to me Ike, can't disagree with ya!
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    is it that you want to declutter more of the resources section?
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No it's fine
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    also, just to be clear-- the issue with "unapprove" is that you don't know if the table actually gets deleted from the server, right? AFAIK I have no way of seeing where the tables actually lie on the server, so it's something I can't test effectively
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    They wouldn't get deleted from the server, I don't think.
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Can we get back to the subdomain folders/files, the uploads.pinballnirvana.com folder is where uploads would need to be, just wondering what might need to be deleted..
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    do you mind a phone call? probably easier to discuss, save some wear and tear on my hands, too
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No problems Ike, can't talk now but will try and set this up.

  • @ Ike Savage:
    okay, well let me know if you need space cleared up across the torrent area, because I have some ideas

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Yeah, noticed a .zip file contains many versions etc..

    The file is actually on the server in FP originals but isn't public.
