    Default VegaPin - Unconventional Build (43"/24")

    First i planned to do a Visual Pinball Cab but then i stumbled over Pinball FX 2. Dämn! This is freakin awesome!
    I dont care about the "real" Pinballs, but i do care about the "cool" Pinballs ... so I plan to use pfx2 with my Cab:











    A Few Questions that some Board-Gurus maybe could help me with:

    1. Is it possible to integrate nudge/tilt with PFX2? (maybe with one of zebs boards or a pincontrol1)
    2. Is it possible to integrate LED Stripes and Flashers with PFX2? (Cmpatibility with Zebsboards or LedWiz?)
    3. Is it possible to integrate Force-Feedback (i saw it was possible for the flippers, but what about the bumpers & Co.?)

    Would be supernice if someone could lend me a hand. I have figured out all this stuff for
    Visual Pinball but unfortunately i dont have a blaze how to do this with PFX2

    Got my Code yesterday from Bobby and had to try it right away.
    From a barebone technical Standpoint it already seems to work well 

    i hardly dare to admit it ... but with the screens, i knew i want to have a 42" playfield and a 24"
    backglass (because the two match pretty cool in size when combined) an i stepped into my local
    electronic discounter and just bought the cheapest models available in that size ;-)

    Here are the Tech-Specs so far. Ill update additions as I glue dat beast together ;-)

    Very nice you should post a completed video of it up and running.

    One thing, how do you launch a soft ball for certain skill shots without a plunger. Is the launch button pressure sensitive?

    When Im done with all the little Lighting and Cosmetic Details ill be postin a Video 4 sure!
    The Plunger-Style is managed by time. The Longer you press the "Lift Off" Button the harder the Shot will be.
    So for soft Shots you just keep the "Lift Off" Button pressed for a short amount of time and the let it go.
