The Virtual Pinball Machine

The Finished Game

This project involved an incredible amount of work (and in incredible amount of cussing...mostly at Windows XP). It totally consumed every weekend and free evening I had for two and a half months. There were times when I was saying (aloud...which made me sound like I was insane), "Why in the hell did I do this? I should have just sold one of my expensive pins and bought a Virtuapin machine! I can't do it!"

 

But I did. And, now that it's done, I'm really happy that I did it. All of the hard work paid off. No...virtual pinball isn't the real thing. But when you put it in a real pinball cabinet with real pinball controls, it's really close. And, DAMN it's fun!

 

Hopefully this extensive project write-up has been informative for you. My goal was to make it easier for anyone who is going to attempt a virtual pin build of their own. I hope I've succeeded.
