Hold Flipper for Status Update 4

These are just the ramps that DIDN’T make it into the game! (I think I ended up making every ramp at least 3 times)

Wow it’s been a couple months since the last official Bill Paxton Pinball update! The playfield is complete, the code is less buggy and it will definitely be done in time for the 2010 Midwest Gaming Classic.

The full, final reveal of the machine on this site will likely be around March 17th. You can keep up with the progress by subscribing to my YouTube channel or Twitter feed. (Warning: Twitter feed also contains a lot of non-work-related ramblings, usually about beer, the weather or waiting in lines)

For a sneak peek at the vector drawing of the final board, hit the rest of the story after the bump. We’ll see you soon!

Vector drawing of the final board. Parts will be described in excruciating detail when everything is done, for now I’ll just let you speculate 🙂

  1. Well that looks just fine.
    I would assume you would, but I hope you know what you’re doing when it comes to the steepness of the ramps. It’d be a shame if it took way too much force to get the ball up there.

  2. Hope you will make a version for pinmame so that the rest of the world also can enjoy your amazing work.

  3. @ Michael WG – That is just a POOR attempt from some nobody writer to get a name. It looks nice, but isn’t all that IMO.

    @ Richard O – I couldn’t agree any more with you on that!!!

    @ Ben – Excellent work sir!!! Excellent work!!!

  4. yeah Michael, the Kotaku site isn’t known for its reliability – they just report on stuff that no other site wanted to waste time mentioning. Besides, Ben could pone that invention any day 😉
