Bug Report and Versions
pretty much guarantee that this simulator is going to have some bugs. If
you want to report one to me, email me (see my
Home Page for email info). PLEASE - before
sending that email, read this page to see if the bug you're reporting is one
that I already know about. And if you're going to send an email anyway,
be as specific as possible. Tell me EXACTLY what was going on in the
game when the bug occurred - where the ball was, what direction it was moving,
if it was hitting a bumper or wall, etc. Try to
reproduce the bug a few times so you know exactly what's going on. Any
emails that just say "I was playing the game and it suddenly froze" are
going to be ignored. I need to know the exact circumstances that cause the problem.
these bugs would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.
Pinball Bug List
Initial release: May 18th, 2007
- Belive it or not, there are NO KNOWN BUGS at this time.
- NOT A BUG - No sound - Where are the beeps and blips I remember
from the original game!?!? Well, unfortunately there is no easy way to
NOT currently considered a "bug", but if I ever get the motivation I might
on the task, be my guest. I can send WAV files if needed. And, of course,
send me the results if you get it working so I can put it up here.
- NOT A BUG - Score wrapwaround - if you got the score over 999 and it wrapped back
to zero, congratulations. That's not a bug, it's intentional. There
is only enough space on the screen to display 3 digits. I'm
guessing that's how the original game worked too, but I never got
anywhere close to 999 points (I haven't gotten past 200 with the
simulator yet either). Note that if you get past 1000 points, your
score will be shown with an extra zero, i.e. 5 points normally shows
up as "05", but if you have 1,005 points it will show up as "005".
If anyone goes over 999 points and it causes a bug, let me know. I
didn't test that part of the program thoroughly because it'll
probably never happen. Even if you break 999 points and don't find
a bug, feel free to email me and brag about it.
