this game will have some unique features as want to try somethings differently - one thing is instead of a Start button, I want to have like a arcade feel - 1 player, 2 player etc buttons down the left hand side of the coin door so appeals to kids and new pinball players

I hope the code intends to include ....


Maybe Swinks will be releasing details of his efforts with incomplete code - heaven forbid!!!

here are a few images of the arcade button concept as quite often I notice kids at the arcade or even when I have visitors over who obviously have never played a pinball not sure how to rack up more than a one player game and even then the start button is not suggestive enough, so I was thinking a few player buttons as then kids will know which button to push to start. Currently just a 2 game setup but easy to add more.

also I wanted to build a cabinet to suit both a plunger and a launch button (like on AFM or MM) so I can quickly swap out parts and convert from one to the other without needing a new cabinet. So I designed a plug to insert into the plunger hole and have a lip on the inside outer edge. The launch button is 60mm dia so it covers the plunger hole and passes through the adaptor and then the launch button nut locks everything together.

I hate the theme and the thought of such a game........BECAUSE I wasn't the first to think of it and because I don't have the creativity or skill to make it happen  ^.^

Good luck with the project Jady  ^^^

I have all the shows on dvd and love the TV series-I'd love to own a replica General Lee.

Looking great Jady.

Two things which have me hooked on certain pinballs - ones with flashing lights / beacons; and games with loud bells or air sirens!

What would be totally cool would be to have the Dukes horn instead of a knocker coil.  I mean an actual compressor and horns, not some MP3 of it.

My wife still jumps when the knocker sound happens, with this cool accessory, I'm sure she'll have a heart attack. In fact I think most people would shit themselves the first time if not everytime.

Loudest game always got the most attention back in the arcade days.  Hence why the Pole Position attract mode could be heard over everything!

that is the plan - to have a set of the compressor air horns popping out underneath the cabinet playing the dixie tune - will scare the crap out of everyone...  %.%
