To me it seems like the flippers need some work.....especially when both are hit at the same time. Its like they both will not respond when pressed at the same time - its either left OR right and not both.

Hey Arenafoot. If the left difficulty is set to A, the joystick up which fires both flippers is disabled. If set to B, joystick left = left flipper, joystick right = right flipper and joystick up fires both flippers. B is the easier choice. Think that's what you are seeing?

That was the trick......before I'd get 20k now I just got over 60k!!!

Alien Pinball release 0.8 (see first post).

 

This is a maintenance release with some optimization. If you use a harmony cart. This one is for you.

 

Let me know if you run into issues.

During the game play it's stable.  There's minor jitter during screen changes.

I thought it was pretty good despite what you said about it not resembling pinball :o I thought it was pinball-like enough... Though the ball seems to keep passing through the thing at the centre from both directions... I'm probably missing something though.

Ah OK. Not sure then.

Left Switch on B = Easy game

Left Switch on A = Harder Game

 

SWITCH A:

Gravity is more of a factor 

Ball behavior is different

Joystick up for both flippers is disabled.

Wall hits are slightly different.

The tilt is more sensitive. 

If the left difficulty is set to A, the joystick up which fires both flippers is disabled. If set to B, joystick left = left flipper, joystick right = right flipper and joystick up fires both flippers. B is the easier choice.

 

All I can think of.

Sorry it took so long to reply Tangentg. Get the latest version from the first post of this thread. It is the last one (bottom) of the list.

There are so so many ways to run a Atari emulator I'm not sure the one you had the problem with.
