RE: 1961 Bally SharpShooter - Pending Release

I approve, now let's have it!
Seriously though, why don't you attach it to your post? I have had two tables awaiting approval for days, and only one of them is an unauthorized mod!
 
RE: 1961 Bally SharpShooter - Pending Release

It's been approved now.

Nice. The balls are bigger than I expected, but no problem.
Have you ever tried a joy to key, or mouse to key type program with this? If it works, it would make the gameplay even better.

Edit,
I just tried JoyToKey and it works great.
 
RE: 1961 Bally SharpShooter - Pending Release

I looked at the JoyToKey program, but never tried it. That's cool that it works.

Yes the balls are pretty large in the real deal too, they are 11/16". Shot with a vacuum cleaner motor.

Here is a link to some information about it and the site where I got most of my resources.

Edit: Opps failed to add the link. Here it is.

They could not have possibly made JoyToKey any easier to use. Download it one minute and you will be playing this with joystick the next minute. I inverted the up and down, though, for stick, and me, it just seems right.
You did an excellent job on this rascal. I have a steadier hand than you are simulating though, how can I adjust that? Just kidding.
 
RE: 1961 Bally SharpShooter - Pending Release

Come to think of it, it IS right. You move the butt up, and the aim IS going to go down, because of the pivot point.
I also want to say that it is more realistic than I thought it was going to be. Something you said made me think that the elevation was going to be locked and switched about those 3 planes, but it is not.
Thanks, and Merry Christmas.
 
RE: 1961 Bally SharpShooter - Pending Release

I added the gun drift because it was too easy to get 800 points otherwise.

Edit: Oh, and Merry Christmas to you too.
 
RE: 1961 Bally SharpShooter - Pending Release

Thanks Rascal - I like this game.
 
RE: 1961 Bally SharpShooter - Pending Release

Thanks destruk, I'm glad you like it. :D
 
Thanks for another unique game rascal, it's a lot of fun and should be added to IRPinball!
 
Thanks Jon, I will do that.
