Notes: Player two uses the standard left and right arrow keys, i.e. "KeyJoyLeft" and "KeyJoyRight" - in vpmkeys.vbs those are keycodes 203 and 205.

From the IPDB: This is a head-to-head game where two players at opposite ends of the PF compete in simultaneous play. Each player has flipper buttons which control only those flippers facing the opponent.

This game has patented "switch-flippers". Each flipper has a wireform switch attached to it which closes when the ball hits the flipper. The switch performs different functions for single-player versus head-to-head games. During head-to-head games, the switches are used to instruct the "Designated Scoring" system to award all playfield scoring to the player whose flipper last touched the ball. During single-player games, the switches are made active only on the opponent's flippers, and a ball striking those flippers causes them to energize and "Auto-flip" the ball back towards the player.

This 2-player 1992 flipper game is not to be confused by name with the 1-player 1992 flipperless redemption game 'U.S.A. Football' from this same manufacturer and which used the same unique head-to-head cabinet style but which has a very different playfield layout.

This game has an American football theme and no up-post between the flippers. It is not to be confused with the 1992 export version 'A.G. Football' which has a soccer (futbol) theme and does have an up-post between the flippers.

    (AI prompt) What is a EM Pinball Machine?
    Quote
  • ChatGPT @ ChatGPT:
    @uptown47, An EM pinball machine refers to an "Electro-Mechanical" pinball machine. These are the classic pinball machines that were manufactured before the advent of solid-state technology, which uses microprocessors and digital displays. EM pinball machines were popular from the 1930s through the late 1970s.

    EM pinball machines operate using a complex system of mechanical components such as relays, stepping units, score reels, and switches, along with electromagnetic devices like solenoids and coils. These components work together to control the gameplay, scoring, and sound effects.

    The gameplay of EM pinball machines is typically more straightforward than that of modern solid-state machines, with a focus on hitting targets, bumpers, and completing specific sequences to score points. The scoring is displayed on mechanical reels or wheels that physically turn to show the player's score.

    Collectors and enthusiasts often appreciate EM pinball machines for their historical significance, mechanical ingenuity, and the tactile experience they provide. The
