Spooky Pinball Podcast Show #122
Well we’re still stuck in stay at home mode while we do what we can in the pinball shop, so we decided to try something different this month and have our own version of MARCH MADNESS! On May 1st … because dare to be different. Ben Heck joins us for the fun and to make sure we don’t have any ties in the “tournament”. You’ll also hear from Dangerous DAVE Peck give you a rules run down for AC/DC, and of course James is always lurking in the E.M. Dungeon. Brought to you each and every month by Pinball Life. Enjoy the show, wash your hands, drink a beverage, and do all those projects you had on hold while we wait to get back to normal (like we were ever that!).

You’ll also hear from James Willing talking about shooter games from long ago (and a cool commercial mocumentary!) in the E.M. Dungeon, and you’ll also hear from Dangerous Danni Peck as you gives you the path to defeat Vikings! You’ll also have a shot to win a great prize, sponsored as always by the fine folks at Pinball Life. Pop a cold one, join us, and I swear it will be fun.

This month… it’s just Charlie interviewing Bug. Yep, get an inside ear to the minds of a father and son just trying to make their way through the fun, exciting, and sometimes choppy waters of being both family and co-workers in the crazy world of pinball. You’ll also take a trip to the E.M. Dungeon, and Danni is going to teach you how to overcome the X Men. Terry at Pinball Life is giving away a set of BriteButtons for early solid state games so you can see your fingers better when you play (or just look cool…). Kick back and soak up the pinball talk. Enjoy!

  • 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?
    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,
    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..
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Uploading a 1.34 GB Pink Floyd The Wall zip file via ftp to test...
    Quote
  • @ 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
