Hey, there! I'm Benny - I've been wanting to get into Future Pinball for some time now (not just to play - I wanna build some tables). So far this forum seems like the best place to be. Looking forward to learning all about this awesome pinball emulator, and getting some good playing time in.

On a real-world note: I'm building a game room in the basement, and have been thinking about using FP to build a digital table. I currently own a 1976 Gottlieb Surf Champ EM game that I just love to play.

Hope to get to know you all soon. . .

Welcome,
You've got a fantastic real table, in Psdb you can find a perfect recreated version for FP by Popotte.
Fp is perfect for your needs even if someone could tell you that is not so!
Would like to see a video of your Surf Champ in action ;)

I do have a small vid of the machine in action from a low-angle on YouTube:

I should probably get a walk-around of the machine out there soon as well. I'm currently converting it to LEDs.

I bought it about a year ago. It was gone through for the most part by the guy I purchased it from. Only real issues it has are that it won't recognize player 4, and the match doesn't work for a couple of numbers.
