  • Strange Science is a pinball machine from 1986 and manufactured by Bally Manufacturing Co.

    This is a great table with crazy sounds, bright lights, and a five ball multiball mode!

    This started out as a solo project but thankfully it turned

    into a joint effort to also include invaluable talents of BrandonLaw and bord.

    We're very happy with how it turned out and hope you all enjoy it!

     

    Big thank you to the following people for making this happen:

    destruk : For being able to freely use the original table design from VP V9

    BrandonLaw : Invaluable contributor of table resources, improvements, and beta testing

    bord : Creator of those awesome primitives (because i can only use Blender to build ramps!)

    jturner : LOTS of tear down / reference pics i found in Flickr

    nFozzy, flupper, ninuzzu - newer VPX subroutines and techniques

    bigus1 : Playtesting and improvements

    Anyone I may have forgotten. Please let me know and I'll add yo

    This table has been created using 10.6 so that version or greater should be used to play.

    Included rom and nvram files should be used.

    Please see script for various table options.

    Version 1.0.2 - Fix to a rare case where the lock ball counter was incorrect.

    Version 1.0.1 - Minor update to side rails for DT users.

    Version 1.0.0 - New VPX version of Strange Science built loosely from destruk's V9 version.

    Most of the script was rewritten and the table elements were overhauled.

    New VPX subroutines (flipper physics, shadowing, flasher lighting, ball jumping, etc.).

    Playfield cleanup/optimization.

      I am so glad this table was on Zigbane’s plate!  As someone who owns the real table, it’s dear to my heart and just a treat to play.  Please give this table some time as it’s not a hard table to play, but incredibly rewarding.  Always something to chase!  The real life table is obnoxious with how loud and bright it is with it’s (one of only a few ever) 120v neon topper.  Just a hoot to play.  I really hope the community enjoys it and I cannot thank Zig and the team enough for this amazing contribution!

      Looks great, I’ll have to get it on the cabinet to really test it out.

      I do have to ask, and the same goes for D&D as well, why do you have the table rails in the DT background image?  it looks fine until someone (like me) changes the POV for the desktop, and then you have weird floating wing rails and black space between the rails and the cabinet walls, the background image needs to be extended behind the table of your view to allow for people that may like other views, and side rails should be on the table not the backdrop so they move with the desktop pov   thanks.

      I had the  fortunate position of sitting back and watching @zigbane and @brandonlaw work on this project. Nothing but positivity and hard work behind the scenes. Really a pleasure to be a part of.  Thanks guys!

      @borgdog, that was thought of at the last minute but wanted to get this out.  I’ll surely have an update in the future and I’ll add that.

      Nice work. I like the added touch when you hit the magna save buttons.  It also has unusual out lanes.  Nice to see different tables like this.  Keep up the good work

      Wow. This was pretty radical table design from Bally in the mid ’80s.

      Wow! Great table! I used to play this at a bowling alley back in the day. Will be adding to my growing list of tables to install soon. Thanks for sharing it really does look nice.

      Thanks a gazillion.
      I used to own this table and it was in really good condition, topper included.
      I regretted parting from this table 6 years ago ever since. Especially when prices went sky high afterwards.

      Thank you for this table, she will get a good digital home ;)

      Thank you very much@zigbane, @brandonlaw, @bord, @jtuner and the rest of you for this really surprising well made table. I thoroughly enjoyed playing it just now and looking forward to get back home to play it even more. Games like this, and D&D, will very soon force me into fixing my left magna save. :good:
