greenknight is on a distinguished road
Default Potential good news!

I know many of you, like me, loved Sphere's original tables and are also mourning the loss of sites like Pinball Originals: well, I've been going through some of my CD-Rs I burnt at least 10 years ago and it appears I have some (if not all) of Sphere's tables on the CDs.

If there are no objections and if someone can instruct me on how to upload them, I'd be happy to share them. They may not be the most up-to-date versions, but I'll be happy to help.

Not sure if I have any screenies tho'

GK

Update:
Thanks SteveOz for the link
http://www.pinsimdb.org/pinball/?searchAuthorIdx=54

but all the download links point to Pinball Originals which, as you know, is empty.


Thanks anyway.

Hah! Just got loose from the table list there at PinSimDB (1511 tables) but thanks to StevOz, I don't have to type the link.....

I found 17 titles of which I recognized about half, but when I checked my FP list, I have only Chaosmonger. Maybe some others are on the failed harddrives, although I transferred the entire FP and VP folders, having to set up or install only a few things (I still have all downloaded zips) and it's weird to find that something's disappeared.

Mukuste-and-crew's DirectX9 alchemy got me playing VP9 much more than even 2 years ago, and my FP problem is its nudge; while it steers the ball much like that of VP9, it works in the opposite direction, and I'd probably have to play only FP for several hours before I got acclimated. I even got PinballX so I could connect to PINemHi Leaderboard and log FP scores (no need for a frontend, otherwise), but the dyslexic nudge deal has hampered me.....

Boy, when I get sidetracked, I really do it up! I apparently downloaded all titles (Correction; 16 rather than 17) around midnight Jan 14-15, 2014, but never got around to any but Chaosmonger. I suppose I should extract and verify completeness and operation, but things seem encouraging.....

green knight, i don't know if this helps, but there was recently talk about reviving pinball originals as a resource attached to pinball nirvana (i, uh, think i have that right).

whichever way is easier / more sensible, i guess.
