The latest Stern's Pinballs: Seeking Donations

Twin Galaxies is about a decade behind its pinball platform, especially on the most recent Stern Pinball releases. I started to create a few tracks tonight, and plan on a few dozen more. Any donations to these tracks would be most appreciated for future competition. Many Thanks!!!

    I just blew all my points on your tables. I couldn't help myself. Nellie was configured to play with extra balls.

    I have no idea what "extra balls received" means as a rule, but I donated anyway. GL HF


    Can you make these derivatives or no? It would save some SP if so.

    As opposed to a ball limit (3 or 5).

    All the Pro tables, which are the bulk of the tables, are based off of one rule set...Definitely derivatives.

    Thanks...

    I am continuing off the past rules from other tables, as they already are.

    "Extra balls received" is always the factory default setting.

    Tournament settings is the other settings, that does not enable any extra balls.

    I tried to make derivatives, but the system would not allow it. Arcade and Pinball do not have sub-categories built in, like what consoles have.

    I bet @SincerelyFranny could help here instead of spending all this SP. I just donated on 4 tracks for 100 SP but should have read and understood what you were doing first. These should be derivatives. I just wasted 75 SP. Oh well.

    Don't feel bad, Maximus..I just dumped several hundred.

    Found a way around not spending on the additional creations. Only the very first one from a few days ago I had to. Then checking it off from there. Strange, I know, but it is working.

    I agree they should be derivatives, the system will simply not allow it!

    I understand the system won't allow it. However I'm sure Franny could help. That is, unless you really have a need to submit on all these tonight... this could wait for Franny.

    Let me see what we can do about this.


    I just have some questions

    Have all the tracks been funded yet? Or are they still in the marketplace?

    What are the links of the problem tracks you are talking about?

    How many total tracks are you trying to add?

    Hi Franny,

    Its not "problem tracks". Its the problem with the system itself -adding and accepting "derivatives" on Pinball or Arcade platforms. Reason being, they have no sub-categories, like consoles do.


    Eg. Its platform, then the name of the pinball machine. Rules are consistent across the board on (default rulesets).

    I plan to add a dozen or so for now. But maybe 50 or more later on when it comes to "tournament setting rules". Many members here are very generous to fund all the tracks so far. :)

    IF Twin Galaxies can fund them all themselves (the full 25 points) , after I create them to the marketplace, that would be very ideal and useful!

    Update: The last batch of self-created pinball tracks is in the "new track marketplace". Feel free to donate away! :)

    @SincerelyFranny and I spoke the other night, as she agreed to assist further in the future creations herself, provided she has a list of the pinball games, and details of the rules.

    After my Arcade Expo trip next week, with some additional research, I am sure a few dozen more will follow, which are lacking in the scoreboard.

    Stay tuned!
