One of the reasons for making this was to have something I could do with my dad.

So I've finally got both aspects of the cabinet working simultaneously !

It's now both a multi table pinball arcade and an arcade and games console monster Smiley

My dad's favourite video game is the original space invaders.
Gotta say it looks and plays amazing on this big screen.
Better than the original Smiley

One thing that is interesting, one of the pinball tables in zaccaria pinball has now developed an actual 'physical' fault.

When you start a game, the ball does not appear.
I discovered that you now have to 'nudge' the table to knock the ball out of the feed chute and in front of the plunger.

I think this is probably taking realism a little too far Smiley

I restarted the program and computer, but it's still doing it.
Bloody hilarious.

I vaguely recall seeing a 'call operator' option in one of the program's menus. Clicked and nothing happened.
I guess it doesn't do anything until you have a table with an actual mechanical fault.

Some of these programmers really need to get out more !
