    Great choice!

    Plus, Darling has a super-nice wheel art made from a vector redraw, so we can all better enjoy the PinballX experience when selecting the table.  Somebody must have spent a lot of time on that wheel art!

    This is a good table for testing how the change of difficulty level influences the kickers. Of course. Don’t change that and report your scores :)

    DUDES!  Did you all just hear what I heard?  THE HauntFreaks gave me a shout out saying I’ve got vector skillz!!  If he actually saw my  “skills”  in action, I suspect he may tweak his wording a bit, but those are just details.

    Regardless, I accept the challenge to work on the Darling plastics.  I can see the problems/opportunities with the current image file used for the plastics, but I’m not sure about what to do to fix the issues.

    I’ll take the post to the table discussion to clarify, but for now, I’ve attached an image of my work so far (the middle L and R, and the lower L).  But, specifically NOT the lower right.

    I posted the plastics for Borgdog’s consideration on the Darling support thread

    I wasn’t sure how he may want to incorporate these (resize the image file I made, or rejigger the plastics on the table file, etc.)   The images are attached here too, if you want to swap them into the table.

    With improved plastics, it seems that jbg4208’s score should be easily beat!

    I love this table with the captured balls and the lower kickers.

    Man, I really like this table, but I really suck at it.

    Scottacus, although Doogie slightly beat your score, you are still get the honors of selecting this week’s Game of the Week, since doogie chose last week.  So, what’s it gonna be?

    I found that the trick to Darling is to nudge with right kicker shots to get the ball back to the right and just play the ball for left kicker shots since it usually doesn’t go to the right kicker but nudge if it is heading for the right out lane.  The biggest problem is letting the tilt plum calm down between nudges because with my table it is really easy to tilt if you get too aggressive with successive  nudges and then all of the bonus points you worked so hard for go out the window…

    I’m torn between two tables.  Since it is the “Year of the Dog” it would seem to be appropriate to choose another BorgDog table like his really fun and different Nobs table but I’ve heard that the Bart Boys are back out there terrorizing a small town out west.  I’m going with the PRoc Cactus Canyon Continued table with a bonus shout-out to the person who gets the highest “Drunk Multiball”.    The new modes add a lot to the game and I find the voice tracks to be among the best out there “I’ll drink to that”, “Now go out there and do something”, “Oh Honey just shoot anything”, “Our poor town is doomed”…
