Just a summary for those new to this project,
this is a “vintage” style machine that is actually being controlled by a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10.
The hardware (driving all the flippers, coils and lights) was provided by FAST Pinball, while the software is handled by the
Mission Pinball Framework (MPF), a tool that allows for simple Python scripting.
This combination is perfect for the Maker
community interested in home-brew pinball, without the overhead of programming or designing electronics from scratch.
Although the playfield geometry was designed with old fashoned pen and paper,
this simulation was used to explore game rules, scoring, and other potential functionality.
This was implemented using Visual Pinball (VP) software (can be found
and is freely available to play on a personal computer. Enjoy!
