Future Pinball, alternate versions

Support File FP Future Pinball, alternate versions 2018, Jan 22

No permission to download
With this download, I'm sharing all the replacement FP .exes that have been published. Each of these have different versions of physics, but some also have other features like:

1) Removal of Future Pinball's splash and watermark

2) Removal of the 800 objects limit

3) Better memory management

I've found that all the replacement exes are compatible with BAM (Better Arcade Mode). Several of the 'physics versions' have more files than just the FP exe. Some of these files may crash!

For this reason, I recommend you only use the vanilla FP executable, and discard the other files. I'm including everything for those of you that like to experiment. But be warned-- I've found that the "opengl32.dll" file that is in the Zed versions makes the Future Pinball program crash on my PC.

If you would like to use one of these executable files, you must first install the Future Pinball program. Then replace your existing "Future Pinball.exe" file with the new version. Keep the old one handy in case you don't like the changes so you can swap it back.

Personally, since I have a 64-bit PC, I prefer using the 64-bit Zed 1.11 exe, because it has the best better memory management. Most of the guys on the GoPinball forum that replace the exe, use the 2.6, 2.7 or the Zed 1.11 versions.

Following are the various exes included in this DL:

- 2.0
- 2.1
- 2.2
- 2.3
- 2.4
- 2.5
- 2.5 slamtilt rubbers
- 2.5 Release 2
- 2.6
- 2.7
- Zedpinball Physics v1.0_x32_x64
- Zedpinball Physics v1.11_x32_x64

I provide a guide on how to install the Future Pinball program here:
http://gopinball.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=84&t=6054 (GoPinball.com • View topic - Help for New Members / Setting Up Future Pinball)

If you use BAM, you can use any executable file, but can also change the default physics by adding a "default.xml" file to your BAM folder. This allows you to have the benefits of the different features of the different exes, while changing the physics to what you prefer.

I described how to add the "default.xml" file along with the directions on how to perform a full installation of BAM here:
