A classic style pachinko with both Auto Launch and standard Manual Launch options. Without a lot of patient help from Rawd, this update would never have been completed as accurately as it has been.

Besides removing pins for better ball flow, nudging has been removed. The number of balls auto-launched have been increased to 100, and the autp launch speed has been increeased. The slope had been increased, severals walls smoother, and a pin sound has been added. Also, 1 wall was added to prevent balls from hanging near the top of the game.

For those with slower computers, or if you wish to use the Manual Launch feature, Press 7 first. Pressing R starts the game in Auto-Launch mode. At any time during the game, you can switch from Auto Launch to Manual by Pressing 7, but it can’t be reversed.

Patrick's original script has been used, and only edited as needed for the changes mentioned above. The original game is still available for play with VP8.

***Original Release Notes***

Old style pachinkos have a hole to manually load the balls in the blue square. Then it plays with a manual launcher. On new style pachinkos, the player loads the balls into the machine and then an adjustable auto-launcher fires them.. For added fun, the VP version offers both options.

The number of balls fired by the Auto Launcher increase or decrease by 10 with each press of the left flipper or the right flipper. Pressing the 7 Key engages the Manual Launch feature. Going directly to manual launch: key 7

Much thanks and appreication to Rawd, who has aa actual pachinko, for helping me make this version more realistic, and for educating me on the care and feeding of pachinkos. Since these nobel games are monted to walls and cannot be nudged I have removed all nudge coding.

    @Free Bally!, A pirate, known for his seafaring adventures and notorious escapades, found himself in a rather peculiar situation. After a particularly rough storm that had battered his ship and crew, he realized that they were running low on provisions and, quite embarrassingly, that he was in need of adult diapers due to an unfortunate bout of seasickness that had left him with a weakened constitution.

    With a grumble and a scowl, the pirate docked his ship at the nearest port town, a bustling marketplace known for its variety of goods and fresh seafood. He tied his ship securely at the harbor, adjusted his tricorn hat, and made his way to the market with a swagger in his step, trying to maintain his fearsome reputation despite his current mission.

    As he walked through the crowded streets, the pirate attracted curious glances from the townsfolk. His appearance was striking, with a weathered coat, a hook for a hand, and a parrot perched on his shoulder squawking,

    (AI prompt) Why did the pirate have an eye patch?
    Quote
  • ChatGPT @ ChatGPT:
    @Free Bally!, Pirates are often depicted with eye patches in popular culture, but the reasons for this vary. Here are a few possible explanations:

    1. **Injury**: The most straightforward reason a pirate might wear an eye patch is that they lost an eye due to injury. Pirate battles, sword fights, and the general hazards of seafaring life could easily lead to eye injuries, necessitating an eye patch.

    2. **Myth and Stereotype**: The image of a pirate with an eye patch has become a stereotype perpetuated by movies, books, and other forms of media. It's part of the romanticized pirate image that includes peg legs, hooks for hands, and parrots on shoulders.

    3. **Preserving Night Vision**: A more interesting and practical theory suggests that pirates wore eye patches to keep one eye adapted to the dark. When moving between the bright deck and the dark below decks, a pirate could switch the patch from one eye to the other. The eye that was covered
