    Started copying a Presas Pinball Simulator.

    I am working on copying this machine.
    For those who grew up playing pinball machines, there is software that emulates the analoge world of pinballs. Up until recently most people just use it on their computers. I have always wanted to make a stand alone machine.

    I have descided to use the Presas machine as a model for me to copy.

    Normally to bump the ball you use the keyboard keys. I have come up with this idea as a bump detector.
    For those that are intereseted in a free pinbal program you can download it from here, http://www.randydavis.com/vp/intro.htm

    Tilt Sensor

    The Electronic Goldmine (http://www.goldmine-elec.com) sells an electronic tilt sensor, Model No G15429 for $5.95. Saves a lot of time if you don't want to build one yourself.

    From their website:
    Dual axis electrolytic tilt sensor type SP5010-A-006 is similar to the SP5000 shown on the Spectron Website (http://www.spectronsensors.com).

    The sensor features 5 PC board pins and a special liquid electrolyte housed in a .433" diamter x .865" glass cylinder. The electrolyte used in these sensors is an alcohol based fluid, contains no heavy metalss, and is non-corrosive. These sensors are used in oceanographic, aerospace, medical, GPS, etc., applications. There is a circuit on the WEB of an RC helicopter which uses one of these to provide information on tilt as it is flying. These sensors are very unique and are hard to find on the surplus market. Brand new - no data supplied. Has factory label SP5010-A-006. Check out our incredible price! G15429


    Enjoy! May the FORCE be with you and have a magical day!

    cool work benny ... i had an old pinball machine from the 50's the tilt device in it was like a plumbob that hung in a piece of sheet metal, one wire to sheet metal one wire to the bob ,with a hole a little larger then the bob the more you dropped the triangle shaped bob in the hole the more touchy the tilt was

    Very nice Benny! That looks like it is going to come out great.

    I made a new controller/surface for a friend's MAME machine a while back - they sure are fun to make - more fun to play though! I have to find someplace local that carries that MDF with the laminate on it. Does it have a specific name?

    Ahhh you blokes and your tilt sensors, no fun at all, wrecks it for everyone!!

    Just thinking about the school camp I went on in year 9, there was this clapped out pinny machine. As we found out the tilt sensor was knackered, what this meant was that a few of us were able to pick up the front of the machine and roll the ball where ever we liked, now thats real fun!

    Cheers all, M

    Guys, its not a tilt device, its a bump sensor. Currently to bump the machine you must press certain keys on the keyboard. This sensor will replace that.

    Yeh garagefella, I remember as a kid how good it was when the tilt swing fell of a machine, we would get so many free games by manouvering the machine.

    True, but a tilt mechanism could be used for a bump sensor,,,, and would give you some mechanical adjustability of how much of a bump to bump, of course, It would be nice if the program could monitor a tilt switch, just for those people that get too carried away. You would have to segment the hole for individual contact surfaces though.

    Re: Started copying a Presas Pinball Simulator.

    Hi there. Great idea you have going, keep us updated. By the way, what do you think about sports betting in this office https://winnercivi.com/ ? Who has had this experience? Tell me how much you could win. What is the maximum amount? When placing bets at bookmakers, I must understand my purpose and risks. Thanks.
