You should already be following Technology Connections for their wonderful way of explaining just about everything out there but the latest video is all about Pinball



Yes I watched this when it went live (I love Technology Connections), those old electro-mechanical pinballs are amazing devices, see also, electro-mechanical fruit machines. (Or anything that achieves programmatic style behaviour without any microprocessor control.)

I made a little Arcade Paradise with my Analogue Pocket docked as the core... (and with a new flexible deck my work paid for)

Had to go into the video.json files to get the Tate model working on the cores..

And i want use my Switch too of course, so many shmups there now, most with Tate support..

(sorry I forgot how to edit pictures here)

So much nostalgia buried away here. Hopefully some will playable at the Arcade Archive before too long.

Nice, Romanista! I’m going to try and build a MAME cab with an old PC that’s knocking around, want to use the monitor in Tate mode too. I’ll stick pics in here as and when I make any progress.
