    All the way from Windows 2000 We present Pinball !!

    Unzip into a suitable folder I use Program Files (x86)

    If contemplating playing in a quiet area (work or coffee shop), mute sound or at least lower it this is loud

    The best thing is that at the time the programming of this game, It actually set standards for the simulation of physics of a Ball Bearing in motion :geek:

    I'm finding the same issue regarding SCU in that the games appear not to install... well actually they do but the games launcher is a blank 'tile' with no filepath within it.

    Each game will run on its own without installing anything. Just click the .exe within each game folder (or create a shortcut/start menu tile). I haven't tried but suspect the 'save game' option may not work.

    Each game folder can be located anywhere to run, they needn't be placed in the program files if you are just copying them from an old installation or from Vista/W7.

    He has a new release out and it has the games thing in it. I did not test it though.
