Do you mean a magnet trap a ball and hold for a moment?

It can change depending on what you need to do with the ball after it was trapped

If the ball simply stop and then is released with no force over it, a simple wall can do the trick

Thanks Francisco666, but no. I mean like in Twilight Zone, On the mini play-field (powerfield)there are two triggers. They act like magnets repelling the ball when pressing the flipper keys. They are being Used as a alternative to flippers. (pretty cool)

I have keep the Collision shape, but used a tiny model, so you can't see what are hitting the ball :D

I think that you can use flippers to do the same :? , never tested since sometimes measing with flippers make appear a ghost one in the middle of the playfield

Thanks. Though I now have trouble getting PinMame to run. It keeps wanting me to use a command prompt. I tried looking online, but all of the tutorials I could find applied only to VPinMame and Visual Pinball, not regular PinMame.
