The Virtual Pinball Kit will allow you to use the Suzo / Williams Pinball plunger in your virtual Pinball tables translating the mechanical movements to digital ones. This can be achieve thanks to the FRDM-KL25Z encoder and potentiometer included in the Kit programed with Pinscape. In addition, the encoder has a motion detector for the TILT faults and the option to connect up to 24 buttons.
The Pinscape Virtual Pinball Kit with Williams Ball Plunger and motion sensorpotentiometer integrated in the FRDM-KL25Z encoder, fully programmed and assembled by Arcade Express compatible with Visual Pinball, Future Pinball and Pinball FX2.
Basically, the Pinscape Virtual Pinball Kit will allow us to use a Pinball Analogue Plunger in our virtual Pinball software translating the mechanical movements into digital ones thanks to the FRDM-KL25Z encoder and lineal potentiometer included in the Kit and programmed with a software called Pinscape V2. The Freedom-KL25Z encoder will also allow us to configure many other functions such as the option of connecting up to 24 action buttons, LED buttons, automatic TV / Monitor power option, Joysticks, etc..
With the Pinscape Virtual Pinball Kit we will have total control over the Pinball Shooter / Plunger. Since its operation is fully analog, we can fully control the force / stength with which with which the plunger strikes the ball.
Another great feature of this encoder is that it has a Nudge motiondetector for TILTS. When we hit the table, the FRDM-KL25Z encoder will detect it and therefore we needn't buy a Tilt Plumb Bob Assembly Pendulum.
If you want more information about the possibilities of this FRDM-KL25Z encoder together with the opensource Pinscape software you can check out http://mjrnet.org/pinscape/, creator of the software.
How does it work?
Basically we have a pinball Plunger with a special 3D printed support bracket and a linear potentiometer installed at the base of it. The linear potentiometer is connected to the FRDM-KL25Z encoder and via a USB cable to the computer. The FRDM-KL25Z board comes fully programmed with Pinscape V2 open software and can be runned throught an emulator such as Visual Pinball, Future Pinball, Pinball FX2. However, as each user will have a different configuration in his virtual Pinball table, it will always be necessary to make some configuration adjustments. Here's a link to the Pinscape software creator's page where you will find a lot of detailed and well explained information: http://mjrnet.org/pinscape/BuildGuideV2/BuildGuide.php
In case we want to connect illuminated led buttons we would need to buy 2 x Xin Mo ground wires. We can adquire these cables by clicking on the following LINK. The wires will have to be connected to one of the 3 ground pins of the FDRM-KL25Z board and then another one to the 5V or 9V pin in case we want a stronger illumination.
