PBDG cast member Mark Czarnowski is hard at work behind the scenes and it looks like things are really coming together.

Mark got to play Cactus Canyon Continued — a CC game running with P-ROC, a cool board that lets you mod pinball games via a pc over usb.  Mark reports:

“In our repair room, we have a Cactus Canyon, running custom software on a P-ROC controller and a PC. The new custom version, dubbed Cactus Canyon Continued, is programmed and overlaid on top of the original. The pic shows the CCC software creator on the left, and the P-ROC hardware guys, center and right.”

“The P-ROC version has many new features, including a mode called Drunk Multiball, best played by crossing your arms, since the flipper buttons are reversed.”

One thought on “Open Source Pinball in the Windy City – Expo 2012

  1. Wow…sure wish there was some earlier notice of the screening! I was at Expo at the time this was occurring, and the list of seminars (pictured in your email) did not mention Pinball Donut Girl! So bummed…probably was only 100 ft away! Oh well, maybe I will see it someday.
