Looking good, especially those woodrails look nice. In these old machines, was that bar used as a standard lockbar? And did you use keys to open it and remove the glass the same way as in new machines?

Another piece of gaming history documented. Good job.

Looks like an interesting table. Another one of ths 50s Gottlieb games I hadn't really heard about. I'll have to grab this one.

I also liked the wooden rails, which were a staple on pins in that decade.

Thanks for the link, Furio. There are some excellent images of old pins in the virtual tour section.

Are you working on a new table for VP at present ?

Perhaps à too much new for me.

Keep them coming Furio, those early Gottliebs are some of my favorites. Especially the ones with the odd ball flipper placements.

Great stuff. I'm looking forward to it.


Don't make those gobble holes too big. :wink:

Silver does not appeal to to you?
The holes with Vp have one dimension standard.

Silver does appeal to me. I love all those old machines. To me, a lot more skill is needed to play those old tables.

The gobble hole comment was a joke.


Back to Auto Race. I broke my high score record last night, I scored 8.21 million (58 games played) and just to prove that it may have been a fluke I made 1.8 million in the next game. :D

PS: I love the 'Games Played' feature, it gives the player a history with the table.

"Games played" I have seen it in 8Balldeluxe and many pinball of Duglis. Also to me he appeals to.

Now I know how everyone makes those screnshots. There is a special program. Cool.

Douglis' Seawolf & World Champ also has a feature that keeps track of the average score made each game. I love this feature, I'm so obsessed with numbers and statistics that I have played 650 games on World Champ, just to try and push my average up.

That was a hassel for a non-computer savy person like myself.

The screen capture saved the image as a 3MB Bitmap, it was to large for me to load. I opened the image in Paint and saved it as a 138kb JPG image. It then loaded easily.

Grand Slam, your SS won't load for me for some reason. It might work better if besides converting ti to jpg you also resixe it to 640 X 480. That still gives you a good clear SS and is easier to load. That's the size we use for the SS of our downloads, besides the thumbprints which are 150 X 113.

I've deleted the old image (i think) and here is a new HS.

It is an optimal score.
Excluding Race Car, which mine pinball it appeals to to you?

I really like Niagra (Four Stars is similar), also Crossroads is a very good table.

Hit 'n' Run is also a bit of a favourite, I like tables that have a sports theme.

I honestly like them all.

The games that score points as well as a grand total are always good games because there are more options to win.

I have the following tables of yours, please let me know if I am missing any.

Quartette.
Niagra.
Hit 'n' Run.
Four Stars.
Crossroads.
Coronation.
Auto Race.
Dimension.
Flying High.
