  • This is a Ted Zale design from Bally that features a three ball multiball, zipper flippers and lots of fun scoring options.  I also think that the artwork is killer.

    This table has new sound routines for arch and apron rolling as well as balanced surround sound.  Flipper Tricks and nFozzy's physics dampening routines are used to make the table play as much like a real EM as possible.

    As in all of my tables there is an Option Menu that can be accessed by holding down the left flipper button before a game begins.  This can be used to set number of balls as well as many other settings.  I should mention that 0n some Wiggler's there is a pin or a post in the left side "Death Lane" (another Zale invention along with zipper flippers, mushroom bumpers, butterfly rollovers, the Bally Gator and more) that can be enabled or disabled in the options menu.  I can't tell if this was standard from the factory or was added in later by users to make the game easier.  Bord suggested the phrasing which I think perfectly summarizes the option.  No judgement here...

    Thanks to Bord for his crazy good Blender skills and to KDS70, JR and Whirlwind for testing.  There is a B2S and wheel image included in the download.

    If you don't know much about Ted Zale and his designs there is a bunch of material out there but in summary he revolutionized pinball.  Many more resent designers like Steve Richie credit him as an inspiration .  Zale however was the Howard Hughes of pinball, good luck trying to find a photo of him.

    There is an option towards the top of the script that allows you to turn on colored balls.  When I was developing the script I needed to know which ball was which so I wrote code to do this.  If you uncomment the line the table will make BOT(0) green, BOT(1) red and BOT(2) blue.  I think this is pretty cool but it is set to "off" as a default so the game will use standard steel balls as a default.

    There is also an option towards the top of the script (set to off by default) that can be used to give the table the ability to make a PinballY High Score file.  This data can be used by PinballY to display high scores on the DMD during game selection mode.

      Knew nothing about Ted Zale a couple of months ago :)

      Have saved away my shared beta, waiting for the full release as I knew that it still had some tweaks that you wanted to get in. I’ll be playing this one tomorrow afternoon for sure. Timezone etc. Thank you so much @scottacus and @bord ! :rose:

      You can thank Bord for that!

      I hope that some of those pinheads who think that EM tables are no fun give this one a try.  Ted Zale’s designs are top notch and incorporate ideas and mechanisms that were way ahead of their time.  Capersville, Four Million BC, The Wiggler, Gator were all pushing the envelope for their time.  Yeah no DMD, no ramps (except 4MBC) , no sound track but solid game play and a fairly deep rule set for all of them considering there is no processor in them, just a score motor and a lot of switches…

      Wow this is really fun! I was looking forward to this release so much! I missed this game back in the day, though I played plenty of Ted Zale games. Somehow it eluded me for 50 years. Not anymore! What a gift, thanks!

      Another old beauty. Thanks for this great release. I can’t understand, why people don’t like EM-tables.
      Maybe they are younger and never played one. It’s my age, I think. :scratch:

      :good:

      That’s an interesting point, more mature members of this forum grew up playing these EM tables and they set the standard for us as to what pinball is.  Once the flashy SS tables came out it they made EM’s look not too exciting because they don’t have call outs, flashers, DMD and the list goes on.

      My guess is that younger players tried a few EM duds and figured that they all are not worth playing.  Once you look past the flash of “modern tables” you will see that at their core all pinball tables can be judged by three things: layout, rule set and artwork.  This levels the playing field and allows really well designed EM’s the ability to shine along with really well designed SS tables.  Not all EM’s are great but neither are all SS tables.

      Just curious… Was this created with the images/scan resources from me?  If not; I may have some better images if needed. It looks great as is! Can’t wait to put it on my cab and see how it compares with the real one.

      Great job!

      @Dazz they might be?  I think I got the photos from Loserman76 and stitched them together in Photoshop and Bord removed all of the playfield parts and lined them up to known Bally specs but it has been a while and I might be wrong about this.

      At any rate thanks for taking them!  When I first started work on this all I had was some low res photos from the web and I was going to hand redraw the table.  After I got started in inkscape I quickly gave up and this thing sat until I got the photos.  This table would have never seen the light of day without those high quality photos.
