helps when you are handy with woodworking tools too I see!

great job on the alley but on size relation how large is it?

the actual alley looks to be about a foot  off the ground but it's tough to tell

are you gonna' put legs onto it then? or is that a table top model?

or maybe you can lay it across two sawhorses

What kind of switches/sensors do you use on the alley for the pins? I want to build one of these real bad.

Is there an easy way to retrieve the pucks or is that what the kids are for?

If they bounced, you could hit switches on the way back.  Did they really work that way?

They should be disabled on the rebound like they are on real machines.

The switches are disabled for a couple of seconds while the rebound puck is returned.

On the real machine, there is a delay so that it scores only on the way down the lane, and not on the return. I have the schematics but have not taken the time to figure out what it uses to create the delay. But basically, whatever is going on that tells the machine you have taken a shot, takes just enough time for the puck to rebound past the switches.Either that, or there is an actual delay relay.

Not much has been done on this project lately but at least the switches are in place now.

way cool, sign me up for one of these builds. i may want to try the same using the p2k reflection effect. I saw the test image on Dazz's gallery and have seen similar on some commercial units. I NEED to build one :)

 

does anyone have any community software available to do these games as yet or is everyone who is building this type of game still in the development stages indvidually with that also?

 

R2 may need to go on the back burner :)

Rascal is the mastermind behind all our bowler builds :) we are using his VP version of Ospreys real Bowling Alley game.
