Virtual Pinball Cabinet building guide.

Most of you will remember the guide that i created about 2 years ago which was a good overall general purpose guide for Virtual Pinball. 

We went  Full Throttle in this 2nd version. We made a few modifications in the format. We decided to host the guide on our website instead of a PDF as we will keep updating it and this was not possible with the PDF version. 

We are restoring a 1975 Williams cabinet and will equip it will all the bells and whistles available. ( Addressable LED, Shaker, Gear, Chime, blower fan, dot matrix etc.. ) we have documented every section and will present it in a Youtube Video series released twice a week. As the Youtube episode gets released, the section covered by the Video will be unlocked on the website. 


The complementary sections of the guide will be found on the website
