Dev Update

Portrait mode and Virtual Pinball Cabinet support

We're currently working on the portrait mode, which allows you to rotate the view in-game (without the use of your display driver's pivot function). Some model placements will be adapted for the portrait view - so that the lamps etc. aren't cut off and we'll get the most out of the screen space.

Other cabinet support features including multiple monitor setups are still in the planning stage - we'll keep you updated!

Night And Day. Portrait Mode.

For Pirates. With Balls.

Since some of you asked, we'd like to shine a light on the different ball skins and fx in Black Flaggers Pinball:

  • default skin: you can select your favorite ball skin before game start
  • glow: most ball skins have a glow modifier which you can adjust
  • morphing: triggered by gameplay events the ball is morphed to a different skin or different states (burning, wet, ...)

The State of the Balls

Next on our roadmap is a deep dive into the game's story: The pinball table's initial modes / adventures with lights, sounds, music, FX and DMD animations.

Faster Balls. Finer Barrels. Bigger Cannons. More Rum.
