We are glad to announce a brand new contest at Virtual Pinball Discord. A lot of us are loving Future Pinball and being able to play with force feedback is a real treat.

We decided to put together a contest ( well it will be a draw ) for people who want to mod a future pinball table of their choice by adding DOFLinx effects to it.


Why are we doing this? Well , We know a lot of you are stuck at home and Modding a Future Pinball Table ( Force feedback and LED ) can be learned fairly quickly. There is nothing more rewarding than coding a table and sharing it with the world.

In order to attract even more people to the idea, we decided to chip in and donate a few things that we had kicking around.

- 5 Led flashbar kit
- A Power management board ( Quatro )
- 2X Pinscape Kl25z expansion board ( Board only )
- 2X Pinscape Power expansion board ( Board only )

The contest will be running until the end of April. I never modded a Future Pinball table and I was able to learn by watching Terry’s Series on how to code Future Pinball.

Happy Coding

You can build one GeorgeH. We will help you during the process. You can build one for real cheap. I have a cab building section on my website that can give you ideas and how much people spent on it.

You are a great table Builder, you deserve a Cab ;->

Thanks,

I have modified quite a few tables but not actually built one from scratch. I have learned quite a bit of coding but not enough to build a table from scratch. I enjoy doing the lighting and learned a new way to add lighting using the coding intended for bump maps.

I just don't have enough gumption to build a cab. I can do the wood work but the wiring looks formidable. I have thought about buying a couple of monitors, setting them on a table and control them with a game controller from my PC but have not done it. To be honest, I seem to enjoy modding tables more than playing them. I am working on a mod of Smoke's TOTAN table right now and with Gimli on an update to Indy Jones.

You have some really nice pics of lots of cabs on your site. I may link to it on my FP guide.

George
