IRPinball's New Guestbook

:welcome1: Visitors!

IRPinball had to move it's guestbook, we haven't had any control over the old one for a long time, it will be deleted soon.
http://guestbook.sparklit.com/entries?gbID=43997&gbaction=viewResponses

The problem is, nobody @ IRP was ever notified that there was a new post and there was an option to make the post a private message, the old site would allow the pm message to be sent but we couldn't read them.
You can do that here by clicking on my username if you Register.

All of the messages from the old place have been imported, see the thread Imported Messages (826 entries 7/2001 to 1/2012).

It's suggested that you Register at Pinball Nirvana before you post, it's free and many new features will be available to you, including notification of responses to any new post that you make.

A few (all now optional) of the questions we asked at the old site were:[FONT=Arial, Helvetica]
Where are you from?
What is your favorite Visual Pinball Table(s)?

What is your favorite Pinball Machine?

There's a lot of VP History at IRPinball! It is quite nice to see all these tables there and wonder how such recreations were made back in the day, and most of the tables under 1 MB! Awesome!

Here is an extremely well made table by user Gottlieb, which is a recreation of Gottlieb's Spirit of '76 table. It is very photoreal! The look and feel of it make me think I'm playing the real machine in someone's garage or something!

I love IRP! It's where I started at. Mind you I started in late 2008, having never turned on a computer before. When I found out how to make the pins actually work, I was blown away! Compared to now is quite different, but not knowing anything, then all of the sudden you can play what you haven't played in 20+ years....! OMG! Much of my vp8 collection is from there. Hopefully I can update some in vp9 sometime.....

only problem I am having with IRPinball is their abnormally slow download speeds
it takes upwards of two minutes for me to get most any table from there
and these are all smaller pins like around 5 megs or less!
but boy are there some great pins sitting on that site!
many of the older vp ones reside there still (vp6, vp 8
and are a blast to look through and play
kinda' like strolling through a just opened museum
I swear each time I go there I find pins I missed on earlier visits!
ah good times can be had there as much as the other sites too

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • @ Ike Savage:
    where is the unapprove option, anyway? is that a super mod thing or something from the admin panel?

  • @ 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,
    Quote
  • @ 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.
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    okay, well let me know if you need space cleared up across the torrent area, because I have some ideas
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Yeah, noticed a .zip file contains many versions etc..

    Uploading a 1.34 GB Pink Floyd The Wall zip file via ftp to test...

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

  • @ Anthias:
    Um, so, Hi!. What did I miss? (he says as though he ducked to the toilet while the adds were on...)
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Hi guys, I«m asking here as it might have a quicker response. How can I check the ball size used by authors in FP? or at least the default size if anyone knows. Thanks
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    Most FP authors use the default size and don't know how to use BAM to alter it.
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    I think it may be 13.8 though
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Thanks. But while I've waited I've looked at a ring around a ramp in LotR that's 26mm so i figure the ball being 24mm. A bit short of real life ball size if that's so.
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    of course I could've used my brains earlier and create a table with some carefully spaced guides and check that the ball is in fact 27mm in diameter. Peeking at fp.exe and bam.dll and there's no way to change this. you can set the colour and the id to track it though (but that's known)
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    With Bam custom ball coding you can create balls of any size...see my titorial
