"How I can use this game". Typical newbie question. Contrary to your opinion, I think that it is better to direct a newbie to a complete guide on the matter, so that from then on he will have access to all the important info for future reference, rather then have him ask more questions like that, which have already been asked and answered umpteen times over.

There was a pinball movie already - called Tilt - but it was not a movie based on a specific pinball table, but a movie about pinball. Wasn't Tommy also turned into a movie or something?

:evil:

In essence, you're right about this. But I find it more decent to at least describe a link you might provide, instead of just 'throwing' it at somebody. They might come to think that questions are not answered in a worthy way. It just helps keeping the atmosphere to an agreeable level... Still, I do think that there are indeed a lot of advantages in throwing a link instead of providing one answer (like I did). Should anyone come op with further questions, because of the answer, then they can just consult the guide.
Please bear in mind that I didn't have the slightest intention of disaproving any of the actions performed here. I just felt I might point out that a description to go with the link would certainly help to keep things smooth. Just say something like 'The answer to your question can be found in this guide' and then throw the link.

Ein toller Flipper, den ich noch von meinem 486er kenne. Aber leider kann ichs mir nicht erklären, warum bei mir auf meinem neuen Computer nur noch der Fantasy-Tisch geht und die anderen nicht (Nova, Blood, ...) Kann mir jemand helfen?

Hmm, you should really at least try to speak english on these boards.

Anyway, did you download the game from Abandonia? Otherwise you might have gotten the shareware version, in which only the fantasy table is playable.
If you do have the full version it would be nice if you could tell use a bit more about your problem

You need to use a DOS emulator, like DOSbox. Old DOS games will not run in Windows.
