Hi Lelia and welcome to the list.

I can't recall if it's the same in the esp pinball classic manual, but in the xtreme manual there is a very good explanation of the mechanics of pinball.


Basically the principle is you have a table which inclines steadily in front of you. On this is a ball bearing which obviously will naturally roll down towards you, however you can propelle the ball up the table by flicking it with flippers, small paddles usually two situated in the middle of the bottom edge of the table.

Going up the table away from you are various things your ball can roll around when flicked, targits to hit to score points, bumpers to bounce your ball off, switches which change the layout of the table or make something special happen etc.

The object is to hit the ball precisely with your flippers in order to propelle it up the table away from you hitting as many important targits and scoring as many points as possible.

the bad news though is should the ball fall to the bottom of the table completely past your flippers, ---- or indeed on some of the nastier tables should it run over some specific drains, it'll be lost and that turn will be over.

Hope this explains things.

This is only the general principle of pinball, and really I'd advise checking the manual for both a full explanation, and also an explaantion of how the tables work. I'd also advise trying esp pinball xtreme, not only are the tables much improved on, but imho the sounds used for things like scanning the table audibly are more logical and easier to handle.

as to which classic table is easiest, well I'm not sure sinse I've only played the demo I'm afraid, though I recall the wild west table as not being so bad, though that might be just because I've played the xtreme version in pinball party pack vol 1.

Hth.

beware the Grue!

dark.

Subject: [Audyssey] Intro and a question about pinball classic


Hi all, my name is lelia and here is my question.
When answering please know that I've never played pinball, I've heard the sounds of pinball but have neve seen a pinball machine that I can remember. so what I wanna know is how do I play the tables on the pinball classic game and which is the easiest one to start with, I'm assuming its the soccer table.
thanks for any informative tips you can give.
