Description
My second and final table. There was never a real world pinball based on the Ghostbusters franchise which I always thought was a travesty. Heres my attempt to fill that void.

I hope you enjoy this table. Please leave a comment in the comments box if you have any feedback



Works with both Vanilla and Physics 2.5 but is designed and works best with 2.5.

Requires you to untick "Load images into editor" in the editors settings or it'll crash upon loading due to the size of the table and libraries.

Also untick "render game room" in video options as it has its own custom gameroom



Cheers

Pod

Hit the drop targets to lock each ghost into the containment grid. Shooting the ball around the top loop will increase the score multiplier.
Once the ball drains or all the ghosts are locked points and cash are awarded.

****************
** Missions **
****************

There are 5 missions started by dropping the ball into the right hole after using the spinners to reach the destination.

Library - Hit flashing shots to find the Grey lady and learn more about busting

Hotel - Your first proper bust. Hit the flashing shots to subdue and capture slimer.

Containment Breach - Uh oh. The EPA has turned up and shut off the containment grid. Use the spinner sling shots to increase the jackpot and hit the flashing shots to collect

Marshmallow man - The devastator has arrived. Hit his legs to score jackpots.

Gozer - The final challenge. Gozer has invaded new york. Climb the stairs of spook central with each ghostbuster to lock them into the final battle. When all ghostbusters are lost or locked then if you locked at least one man the final multiball begins. This is a timed frenzy, you get 20 seconds per ghostbuster locked (but you always get all 3 balls, 4 if Winston was purcahsed). Hit the balls through the marshmallow mans legs into the spook central hole to get the ultra jackpot!
