Space Pinball

Posted By admin On 30/08/21

Why Pinball. Why am I so mezmerized by pinball machines? It started at a very young age in St. Louis where my uncle owned an old electro-mechanical machine that almost never worked. It was down in his basement and everytime we visited I would run down and see if it was playable. Usually it had laundry piled on top of it and I wouldn't be allowed to even ask to play it.

Space Cadet was included in Microsoft Plus!, an add-on for Microsoft Windows 95. Space Cadet is one of the tables of Fill Tilt!Pinball.It is well known as it was included by default in Windows NT 4.0, ME, 2000 and XP. Pinball is an excellent pinball game from Maxis, a company best known for Sim games. The game will be familiar to anyone who has the Microsoft's Plus! Windows 95 companion pack, since one of the tables - Space Cadet - was included there as a bonus.

Description of Full Tilt! Pinball

Full Tilt! Pinball is an excellent pinball game from Maxis, a company best known for Sim games.

The game will be familiar to anyone who has the Microsoft's Plus! Windows 95 companion pack, since one of the tables - Space Cadet - was included there as a bonus. All the tables in this collection are one-screen tables: viewed from an isometric 3D angle, so you do not need to scroll the screen to see the entire table. There are only three tables in FTB - too few compared to most pinball games that feature six or more. However, all the tables are quite well done.

The version of Space Cadet table in FTB is the same as the version in MS Plus!, except it has been enhanced with improved graphics, multi-ball play, and support for multiple resolutions. With the largest viewable surface, Space Cadet is the simplest and easiest of the three tables. All the tables have a nice built-in help feature: small arrows light up to show you the next target/ramp/bumper to hit for bonus points.

One of the best features of FTB is the soundtrack. You will hear hear digitized pirates telling you to walk the plank on the pirate-themed Skullderduggery table, kings commanding you to slay the dragon on the fantasy-themed Dragon's Keep. Sound effects such as laser fire, cannon fires, and water splash are all realistic and add significantly to the atmosphere. The problem is FTB is the same as with most one-screen games: the ball is too small to follow its trajectory accurately, so only sharp-eyed pinball experts will have a chance at high scores in this game.

While Full Tilt! Pinball is by no means a classic pinball game, it is fun enough to warrant a revisit once in a while. Compared with other one-screen games, it's not as good as Crystal Caliburn, but much better than average fare. Thumbs up, but not a Top Dog.

This program can actually be run under Windows 3.1 (or 3.11) with Win32s installed.
..which means you can run it under DosBox via Win311, if you first install Win32s for Windows 3.1 (or 3.11).
I suggest using RUNEXIT with it, so if you exit the game, it exits Windows 3.1, and then DosBox itself.
If you have RUNEXIT:
If you don't have RUNEXIT:
('/B' creates a boot log file we don't care about, but also prevents the Windows logo from appearing..)
Important note: do not run the launcher (the first EXE you see) itself, it will just display an empty chooser (no idea why); you must run the target table (for instance, CADETCADET.EXE for Full TILT 1, or ALIENALIEN.EXE for Full TILT 2).

I did what Y-5IVE told and it worked just fine for me.

Imtheguyifyouwantpie2020-04-17-4 points

What worked for me was mounting the .iso file, then exploring the .iso I right clicked SETUP.EXE and set compatibility to WIN95 and it installed and ran perfectly

Yoyomaaaa2020-04-01-4 points

Is this able to work on MacOS?

CocoTheMii2020-03-23-1 point

If it's an IMG file, you should mount it as a floppy disk. There is an ISO download available that you can mount as an optical disk.

Bro2020-03-191 point

Get vmware or virtualbox its not that hard then get an xp iso then mount the iso look up how to do that on youtube

cock the glock2020-02-013 points

I mounted the .img file into a virtual machine and it refused to mount, do i need to compile all the files into a iso? (upvote if yes)

Stifmeister2020-01-154 points

When I download iso version on Windows 10 and try to open FULL_TILT file it says that the disk image file is damaged. Can someone please help me !?

Y-5ive2020-01-122 points

for the iso version
go to WIN95 folder then FULLTILT then copy the content of the mode you want to play (CADET, DRAGON or PIRATE) into a new folder named 'd' then execute the exe file from there

Superfitter2019-11-250 point

On a win 7, go to program files and find the game. Now right click on the game and a window will open. Go to the compatibility tab and click on it, change compatibility to windows XP. It should run now.

3D Space Cadet but better.
Thanks LGR to reminding me that the 3D Space Cadet incluided in earlier versions of Windows was just a demo, although it's still just 3 pinball sets. It will still hold a special place in my childhood
