I am in the process of building a Nikola Tesla themed virtual pinball cabinet. I recently finished building the backbox and coin door. I am building the cabinet from 3/4" birch plywood and a few original antique furniture parts. The backbox is topped with a Tesla coil driven device that generates lightning inside a 6" glass disc and 4 homebuilt faux Tesla era vacuum tubes lit with LEDs. I built a coin mechanism into the door so that it accepts pennies. I will get started building the main cabinet once I have purchased the playfield monitor (43" 4k). Gwen Here are a few photos of where I am with the build right now: Here's my test rig set up with the finished backbox. I also cut the plastic handle on the shooter rod off, drilled and tapped the rod and attached a brass knob that matches the one on the coin door I built. Here's a D-Pad I built for menu controls etc.
Nudging is next on my list for my cab. I'd like to get away from nudge buttons if possible. I'd like to do active nudging. What do I need to make this happen? I've heard people use a MS Sidewinder for nudging. Is there a special kind? (link?) Do I need a special script, or can I calibrate through X-Padder? (What I use now) Will I have to go into each table to enable this, like my plunger? If it makes any difference: Windows 7x64 Strong PC Pinball X VP 9.9 only (for now) I don't have an LEDWIZ, or plan to get one because of costs.
