>Thanks that's nice to hear and what I was hoping to accomplish with the videos.

You certainly helped reduce any guesses since sometimes the manuals don't provide details of gameplay. I am not sure when Adam B. had started Pin Pong emulation for DICE.
I didn't know it was on his list whereas I knew Crossfire was on his list.

Someone had also expressed interest doing Pin Pong back around 2009 or 2010 iirc
There had been starts and stops of non-cpu emulation tries over the years by various emulators and DICE is one of the few that has gone this far since Adam restarted DICE in summer 2012.

As for MAME, non-cpu emulation wasn't possible until a few years ago when Aaron had restructured the core code to treat cpus to be just like any other hardware devices on a pcb. With that done, then it was the first start for MAME to handle non-cpu support.

Fantastic reference photos. These should definitely help. It might be awhile before the artwork is supported, but it definitely will be some time later.

I had thought maybe it was a single oversize overlay piece on the monitor. I wasn't expecting there to be 20 to 30 individual stickers placed all over the monitor. :-)
It has been so long since seeing a Pin Pong cab in working shape in person.


>Like you said there's not a lot of videos and info on the 70's games and seeing that I
>own a few of them I thought I should try and fix that.

As a 1970s kid going to arcades, Pin Pong wasn't one I played but maybe once or twice. Back then when quarters were a lot, I had to be selective and stuck with games I liked such a Chicago Coins EM game Flying Tigers, or maybe Allied Leisure's Crack Shot and then by 1975 when Nintendo's film reel game of WG arrived in arcades I played quite a few times when I had money to spend (first 1970s game that operators set for 2 quarters for credit iirc).

I may have seen Pin Pong only at a Time Out arcade that I went to at Westminster,CA shopping center mall in mid 1970s. I don't really recall seeing it other places like Disneyland, but it probably was there as well. I just don't recall seeing a Pin Pong cab there. So it is good to see your video and refresh my memory of details of the gameplay.


>I'm glad to see the non-cpu games showing up now.

It took a while, but that had been bits and pieces done here and there along the way such as roms from non-cpu pcbs dumped years earlier, or artwork pieces scanned in the past, or paperwork being found along the way.



>I got a PM about doing the 3D model too so I guess that's next.

Heh. The cab has interesting looks about it which does make it an ideal challenge to work with.

A large size zip file with all the cab photos of Pin Pong cab can be uploaded in this particular forum thread.
