I myself Paolo (wild) in memory of Gianfranco, who unfortunately died last year due to a bad illness, I decided to insert his tables in this "Thread", to remember and share his tables.

Gianfranco, he also had an account here on PN, I didn't know it ...... and so I don't know how many people knew him here on PN, but I, like Bob (gimli) and George, knew GF very well, and especially what he did for FP.
GF and I also talk on the phone, and so we became friends, being compatriots, and we made many tables together.which you can find in my resources.


Ok, the first table Gottlieb:"Knock Out" I entered can be found here

Here is another GF masterpiece, beautiful graphics, and a truly unique( as far as I know ) "EM", with a retractable Bunpers system, which can be raised by side kicher and the top one, and also advance the bonus, the central kicker is a surprise, you win 500,000, but ....

This machine is a "WoodRail", built and adapted in an excellent way, try it dear friend, you will be surprised, obviously for those who like an "EM".

Love this table used cabinet version and tweaked the position to fit 16:9 screen perfectly. Love how the bumpers do not knock the ball all around the table back then they really couldn't.

Thanks you....Jamosb,you are the first to comment here in this thread, I'm happy.Yes, GF, he was a great table builder, and for this table he created a really innovative system ... we could call it ... mmmm..a trickoO....... there also to say that in that period BAM, it was continuously improving, now it is possible to have a real bumpers, which goes up and down, and with its working physics, like in one of my Zaccaria Time-Machine tables .... you know him?

Here another GF table, this is also a peculiar table, has only one fin on the left, and a not-playable Mini-Playfied on the left, in the sense that there are no fins inside, just a ball (sign score) activated in different ways in the Main-Playfield..... play to see it.

This is also a very nice "EM"_"WoodRail" machine table,with good gameplay, it must also be said that the "camera" needs to be improved it in MP,a something that I will be able to update in a short time.

Midget playfield works fine but the ball should not disappear when it hits the holes to kick the ball in the midget playfield it should kick out and continue play. Maybe you can work your magic and help this innovative table. also stuttering when it hits targets and bumpers (not a framerate issue) I do not know if this is due to lack of BAM physics and he made his own version when he designed the table but that surely can be improved.

Yes its not my machine maybe it just needs bam physics I did not look into his code to see if he was doing anything with manual physics.

I didn't quite understand what you say here......

do you mean slowdowns?

some GF tables have high resolution graphics, I hope you have a PC, more modern than mine, which is more than 8 years old, so a "High" configuration, as I explained before, could help you, always if we are talking about of slowdowns.

no just getting jerky ball movements I do not believe its my pc as I can run Pinevent tables at 53fps. It plays fine in desktop mode so maybe just something with cabinet mode who knows? My configuration is like Terry Reds setup no issues with my pc.

it's as I think then, you have slowdowns.....you say jerky ball movements, but it's like having slowdowns
if so, then it's very strange because you have a more powerful pc than mine if you can play in pinevent
watch my video, I have no slowdowns..... I always hope if we are talking about the same thing...... make a video and show me



















I don't know your configurations but try to disable this(below) always in Video/Rendering/Options

I'm not an FP player, but I know pretty tables when I see them, and that gentleman designed some very pretty tables. So sad that he's lost to us.
