A better image allowed me to implement correct scoring in this update for VP9. Once again, druadic helped to sort out scripting problems I had, so I have credited him with co-authorship. Press F1 for a 2 inning mini game or S for a full 9 inning game.

Arcade Marble Baseball probably was a very big seller, since the player shown is Babe Ruth, watching the ball had had just clobbered flying over the fence for a Home Run. Something most people forget is that Babe was a top notch pitcher, but his "home run swing" was more valuable to every team he played for, since Ruth played in what was called the Dead Ball Era.

Arcade Marble Baseball, or Babe Ruth Baseball as it’s most often called, is a well designed bagatelle, with 7 Out cups scattered around the playfield, and only 4 larger scoring cups, where the bases and the pitching mound are located. There is a row of point cups across the bottom of the game, which record balls, strikes, and fouls.

The game not only tracks your pinball score, but also your baseball game stats, except for runs. Thanks to druadic for his help getting some of the stats to track correctly, and for getting the proper sounds to play when they should. As you’ll notice, a somewhat disinterested umpire calls balls and strikes. The older VP8 version with its poorer quality image and resulting incorrect scoring is still available.

This one was fun to script. Thanks for letting me help you John! I'll more than likely use this script for Smethport's Home Run cardboard bagatelle you would like to see me do. Currently I 'm working on Space Squadron also by Smethport. I have a few ideas up my sleeve for this little gem!

Thanks for letting me help you with this one. It was a blast.

I think we make a good team Will. I playtest your tables and now and again help you figure out problems, and you repair my lousy scripting. As I have gotten older, I have become a very slow learner, so I'm glad you're willing to put up with me.

John;

My pleasure - you have no idea how close you had this to running perfect. It's keeping track of all the dim array statements with commands that make it a maze of hell. Trust me, I'm having the same problems with Light House, 1934 by Scientific Machines. It's been hell so far, but the best thing is the script is quite small. Keeping track of loose balls is not fun - it's what is keeping me from releasing Genco's Good Luck, 1932. I almost got both working right.

You're learning quick. Like the last email you sent me, you're getting this stuff just about right. It does take time. It's taken me tons of hours to learn a lot of scripting but it's worth it.
