    Are any of these real tables, or are there likely to ever be versions of real tables?

    For the record... as much as I love FX, it's got nothing on Pinball Dreams / Fantasies / Illusions.

    Most evenings in '92 were spent playing Pinball Dreams and listening to 'Lights...Camera...Revolution!' the two seemed to work well together for me.

    The only pinball game that came second to that in terms of time spent playing was the Elvira table we had in at the Font & Firkin when I was working there. Problem was it had next to no tilt detection and we near enough turn the table through 45 degrees everytime we played. We even wore grooves into the floor from doing this so much.

    I used to compete on the Pinball ... games with my entire family. Good times. :)

    I must say that it's one thing I really miss from my youth. :(

    I still get the circus tune from Fantasies going round and round in my head. It's become a theme tune for me.

    That was a brilliant table. I can still picture that rather disturbing clown head. :D

    Seem to have an awful lot of you lot on my FL already so there's instant incentive to have a looksee ;o)

    Good good, leaderboards then ;)

    Do it :)

    I only have the streetfighter table and trying to beat crwoody is proving addictive.

    Will buy the lot sometime this week.

    Been enjoying it on the PSP, brought back fond memories. I think I might have to get Dreams too.

    Heh, sorry. Seriously, in around a week's time I'm sure we'll all be posting scores dwarfing the current ones :) It's the nature of the beast :)

    Is there a guide anywhere explaining how to start a fight or explaining what each symbol is that you light up on chun/ryu etc.

    Im currently well into this too and only have about 6 friends playing it (who I somehow managed to best on every table last night despite being extremely new to all this). I would welcome some new challenges to aim at so will try and add a few of you peeps.

    Loving Biolab the most at the moment I managed 23,000,000ish last night which I was pretty proud of until I saw the rest of the leaderboards.

    I didn't play FX 1 but I fancy picking up a couple of extra tables to add to the 4 I got with FX 2 what are the best options?

    I presume Street Fighter is a must put I am torn between Buccaneer and Haunted Mansion for the other. :/

    I've started to learn the tables and am getting a bit better at this. I think Rome is my favourite of the new tables so far. Up there with Geo Wars 2 with the friend integration, I've got about 10 friends playing this and it's very addictive going from friends scores

    If anyone else wants to add me GT - Benny Kill

    Possibly the best GT I've heard in ages - nice one.

    Thanks for the guide Greggywocky - now it's time to add some more of you lot to my friends list and then get some more tables.

    Doc sent.

    To do well in Street Fighter always make sure you've got the ball save lit and then try and start a fight. The symbols beside each character represent a ramp you need to hit, in that order. Then you have to shoot the ball somewhere else (Boat, Akura, etc) to start the fight. During the fight hammer the ramps and avoid the bumpers. All explained in the doc... (page 20)

    Well Yes and No, AGENTS is Star Trek:TNG in reverse and another one (cant remember of the top of my head which one will check when I get home) is an old Williams one 'Whitewater' in reverse again.

    I am sure this is all done unofficially of course and maybe even by accident but when you look at pictures of them its pretty obvious.

    I don't like Street fighter all that much but love the other two , although none of the tables are 'bad'

    I picked up the streetfighter table as I had 200 points left, and I am surprisingly into it. Not that I understand what I need to be doing (PM incoming to Greggywocky).

    What other table would you guys recommend me buying? I tried a few but I am so inexperienced at pinball and the trial time is too short to get any idea on how good it might be. Preferably a 200 points table instead of a collection, but if one of the collections is really ace I might go for it anyway..

    Quoting myself always a bad sign, ok I got home and loaded up and the table that seems to be an exact revers of Williams 'Whitewater' is 'Speed Devils' the car one.

    I am not knocking Zen , but they are obviously real pinball fans to nod to two of the greats. (give us Adams family gold).

    Bloody long read, but from the short bits I did read will come in handy :)

    Yeah thanks Greggy.

    Didn't realise the amount of stuff on the table.
  • Deleted user 1 November 2010 21:10:15
    NP. The main stuff about Street Fighter is from page 20 onwards.

    Started getting into this last night and I found it rather addictive. Noticed that crwoody has mad pinball skills. Only have Earth Defence at the mo but plan on getting all of the others over a few weeks. Was hoping that they would give you at least one free table when you download the game but luckly I had 200 ms points. If I was paying more attention i'd have gone for the Street Fighter table.
