It looks like Nanotech wasn’t satisfied with adding just Gottlieb tables to their new video pinball game called MultiPin, they now have worked out a deal with Blindmankind pinball to add their tables to the system as well. I wasn’t really familiar with them so with some checking I see that they have the three games mentioned in the press release on their website for download to play on your PC but I imagine that the versions used in MultiPin will be modified from the PC version to show just the table as opposed to the surroundings, as you can see in the video below I found of Road Girls. At the very least playing these tables on a MultiPin system would feel more realistic than on your PC I would imagine. For the press release hit the break.

I really can’t imagine playing fake pinball in an arcade instead of a real pinball machine. That’s like playing a darts or pool video game.
This seems to be another David Foley / UltraCade / GlobalVR affiliated release, but instead of being based on Visual Pinball & VPinMAME like UltraPin it’s using Future Pinball instead. UltraPin supposedly didn’t do so well. I don’t know why whoever Nanotech is a front for believes that a PC based freeware pinball simulator program in a down scaled pinball cabinet is going to any better this time around; especially priced at the same starting MSRP, $6000. That’s correct, anyone can freely and legally download Visual Pinball, VPinMAME and Future Pinball and run them on a Windows based PC.
I’m right there with you, Tom. I have a very good MAME cabinet that plays all of the Visual Pinball, VPinMAME, and Future Pinball tables and I put it together for well under $1000. (I contracted to have it built, no less)It has a 21″ LCD screen and buttons on the side of the cabinet to replicate a pinball machine. Looks awesome and plays all of the MAME roms to boot! Have they learned nothing from GlobalVR and their UltraPin release?
I was lately thinking if there are any more pool lovers here on this board.And I don’t mean the swimming type. I think about the sport.I have a thing about shoot pool with my friends and I would enjoy to come across some individuals on the Internet that share the same craze.Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.
