Default My 2nd VP Skee Ball Game

Iíve loved Skee Ball since I first played it close to 60 years ago. So when I saw a simple home version that was sold 40 or so years ago, I decided to see if I could so it justice in VP9. I had to create Kiocker Direction code to go with my Adjustable Speed Launch code, but together they do the trick. I am also releasing The Everest. Which was made around 1865,

Itís always been my policy to upload my tables both here at PN, as well as at VPF. When I asked Noah at VPF to add a few VP8 categories for my tables, he did so quickly. But I have moved on to using VP9, and have asked that a Bagatelle section be added for VP9. Iíve asked him twice over the past month or so, and still no new section. Now, Noah may be super busy, so Iíll be patient. But until there is a VP9 Bagatelle section at VPF, Iíll only be uploading my tables here at PN. I donít always post about them, but you should get in the habit of checking for new releases regularly anyway.

Marx Toys! I had this one in '61. I bought it at Sears and Roebucks with the $5 my Grandparents gave me for Christmas, but when I got it home the prizes were not in the box with the game.

I did find a bug in Marx SkeeBall. If the ball falls off the top end of the ramp and hits no Triggers then the ball is lost and the game stops. I would try putting a Custom Trigger on the playfield just under the top height of the ramp at the width of the table to destroy stray balls.

Thanks Sleepy, I'll check it out. I never figured that anyone would have the speed or direction out of the range needed to hit a scoring pocket. Need to start considering all possibilities. So, when are you going to make that other one for us?

Good God, I don't know.
I looked into it a thousand years ago, but there were no decent pictures.
I only found this picture by chance last night.

Version 2 of Marx Skee Ball has been uploaded, and I was surprised I had also forgotten to add any sounds. Guess I need to focus more on the basics. Thanks again for the glitch report Sleepy.
