Such a shame....

That it ended like this. No posts here anymore. I was so looking forward to this being a success.

Oh well :roll:

Indeed. It all turned a bit sour and the sad thing is I don't even want to play the game any more. I dismantled my virtual pinball cabinet that I spent hundreds of pounds making mostly for Timeshock.

Yes chap, that is a feeling I know well (although not as deep as yours no doubt as I never did the cabinet thing). But for sure, I never for once imagined I would have such bad feeling toward Ade and PP after all the hours / years spent playing it back in the Empire days.....

Like you insx I don't really think about it anymore or even have any desire to play it. In fact I don't even have the new version installed anywhere... lost my codes and don't care to ask for new ones. I do have the original TS .exe package that was being given away for free as part of the Kickstarter promotion. Maybe that will get reinstalled some day assuming it still runs on Windows. Other than that, I'm out. Never can trust Ade again even if he tries to resurrect it again. Not unless he makes good on this shambles anyway.

Timeshock remains a really frekain' good game, and I'll still play it. And I'll still play the other Pro Pinball games. Even so, I find it more difficult to recommend any of them now.

What a disaster.

Last time here for me. I'm deleting TS from my cabinet and tossing all PP files and disks; I would hate to have anyone think I was recommending them.

Goodbye, all. Such a shame such a fabulous software line had to end in such complete disgrace.

I totally agree with all the sentiments expressed in this thread. The Pro Pinball Trilogy is the greatest virtual pinball creation of all time, and its creators could have absolutely clinched their legacy by simply carrying all three boards to the "Ultra" finsih line. I still play the Timeshock Ultra game in Steam, and it is quintessentially perfect . . . so much more realistic pinball than any other products. I would think that the game's creators would have more respect for THEIR OWN legacy than to simply let this whole thing die. Here's hoping they will think better of it.
