Well I wanted to
leave this page somewhat intact because there is a little history here. A lot
of history in fact. The layout of this page is my original format where I
could add little pictures on the left and post a list of associated links. I
really didn’t know anything about html back then, but I kind of liked Phil’s
layout, so I stole it, laugh.
importantly, this page shows how some of these Virtual Bingos date back to
the old IR Pinball website, where I was first introduced to them and met
Will. There is also a neat little note from Paul telling me how much he
enjoyed finding these on my site and being able to live some old memories –
Jun 2003 news
When you update
the "Bingo Games For Your PC" Let me know. There are a few things
you might want to change / add for me:
1. Coney Island WAS NOT made by me. It was made my Snakeyes and Haza. (Sorry
guys – No offense meant)
2. I do NOT use IR Pinball anymore. They removed all of my work so they are
on my -hit list. ALL my work, OLD AND NEW is located here: http://www.saharasales.com/flipperless
3. I do NOT hang out at VP Forums any longer either. I now hang out at: http://www.shivasite.com/forums
4. I am looking for backglasses and playfields of the following: Bally BALI
and Bally FROLICS. I would need TOTALLY FLAT images INCLUDING the wood
surrounding the glass / PF. ALL SIDES MUST be straight and even. For the
playfields, the holes MUST BE PERFECT CIRCLES when looking down upon the
playfield ONLY or I can NOT use them in VP.
5. If folks want more games, they better speak up. I WILL NOT make games with
crappy images - they might want to be aware of this.
6. Games can take from a single month to SIX months depending on how much
stuff is in the game if they want it made for VP.
ALL the above info is stuff you may or may not want to add to what I asked -
seems the page has not been updated as of yet and I just got hold of some
bingo stuff but won't tell anyone about it yet.
Update your pages PLEASE - my new email for druadic is firstname.lastname@example.org since I left
Compuserve over a year ago.
Thanks and HOPE to see the page updated soon. I've been waiting and just got
an email from a guy in Germany for this stuff. Things are looking up.

Well I hope that clears things up :)
I am kind of excited, hopefully his is little hint about
some new bingos coming means more people will have access to the Bingos`
I cannot recall when Will and I first came into contact,
if I remember correctly he wrote me one day to inform me of his bingos. Way
cool dude: As you will see below I actually have posted some on this server
Here are the machines I have seen, that I think are bingo
#3 Coney Island
Cruise – Bingo parts machine
As you can see above Will comments about being willing to code up new
machines, so do not be afraid to write
to him. As you can see though, it is a very lengthy process and he can only
use high-quality pics. So go ahead and send him some very flat and very good
quality photos, and there is a chance that he will create a simulation for
your specific pin :)
remember correctly, he has also started working on a “Twin Joker” but cannot
find a good solid shot of the playing field, so please send him one of these
if you can help out.
A Mr. Paul Jeep wrote me and
asked for the link one day:
I AM ENJOYING THE GAMES VERY
MUCH. A DREAM COME TRUE. I THOUGHT I 'D NEVER PLAY THESE GAMES AGAIN. THANK
YOU SO MUCH!!!! CAN THE SPEED OF BALLS BE ADJUSTED AS IN HAVING A MORE LEVEL
PLAYING SURFACE FROM FRONT TO BACK? IF NOT I'M STILL THRILLED TO PLAY WHAT
I'VE GOT. ANYTHING I CAN DO TO HELP? LIKE LOCATE SOME OLD REAL BINGOS? LET ME
KNOW IF YOU HAVE TIME - PAUL JEEP
each zip package there is a Word file attachment from the VB Programmer /
Broadway 51, 1951 by Bally - Version 1.1
PLEASE keep respecting my wishes in NOT changing anything on the boards I
have created. The longer this happens the more boards will be made. Glad
everyone enjoys the CLASSIC boards and thanks to the HUNDREDS of you folks
who have emailed me telling me the 30's and 40's boards are your favorites!
There's LOTS more where these came from!
Some INTERESTING INFO: This is the FIRST REAL SIZED BINGO DECK GAME. It was
one of Bally's FIRST machines and it sported 3, 4 and 5 line winnings in ALL
horizontal, vertical and diagonals! AMAZING.
The board itself is the BEST I could find for now. I am working on getting
MORE pictures of this truly amazing but VERY SIMPLE board. So, when I get
them you'll see an update! :)
RULES: Just try to get the five balls to win credits for three in line, four
in line and five in line. It can't be any easier! That's all this game did.
There is ONLY ONE OF THESE MACHINES IN TRUE EXISTANCE!
Pressing "S" starts the game and use the ENTER KEY to pull back the
plunger. "R" resets the credits on the backglass when the game IS
NOT in play. Have fun with this simple little bingo machine! :)
I will add all the zip files to
a page here soon, as I continue to clean all of these Simulation pages`
