Visual Pinball On A Tablet?
« on: January 23, 2014, 06:57:42 PM »
Curious ...

The Windows Surface tablet says that it can run any Windows desktop app.

Oh, yeah? What about Visual Pinball? I'm very curious to see how it would run on there.

Anybody tried that yet?

Huh! That sounds interesting.

Which type of tables do you play? The desktop WS tables (holding the tablet horizontally in landscape position)? Or the FS tables (holding the tablet vertically)?

Can you get a screenshot(s)?

Tax return time is almost here ... must use at least part of it for new toys.  :Green:

Yeah,  I  know.... I'm going off-topic on an old topic.

I briefly considered a windows tablet to run VP,  but decided against it because I'd wind up duplicating my efforts to get desktop versions of everything working.   Not worth it (for me),  so I chose to get a few Pinball Arcade tables,  and the whole Zaccaria collection (21 bucks) instead.  I don't need a 2nd tablet,  and I don't have to maintain yet another VP installation.
