If it's of any help, I've just asked Pantaloon to ask Andreas Axelsson for the original sources so that we don't have to reverse engineer the scoring system. This is really what's blocking a release as far as I'm concerned. A big blob of BORING code after all fun and hard code was finished. Cross your fingers that we'll get them.

I remember asking Andreas about that, don't think he had it anymore. Can't find that e-mail back though :-(

Another interesting source for the Pinball Dreams scoring-system might be Vesa Halttunen (vesuri^daJormas), who spent some time working with the source code, as far as I know...

I completely rewrote the game in C++/OpenGL from the original 68000 assembler source code in 2009. The rewrite includes 100% exact original gameplay

There are a quite a few ports of Pinball Dreams for different systems (I remember there even being one for the GamePark32 which is a quite obscure hardware...) so maybe it's possible to track down someone who worked on one of the ports if none of the original Digital Illusions dudes has the source?

I'm digging out the sources for Jackasser so they can have a look.

Hi everyone!

I am the Batman Group coder that is doing the Pinball Dreams port for Amstrad CPC, which I hope to finish in a few months.
I recently found this thread, which seems quite interesting ...

I hope you can finish the project some day, since I see that you are doing a great job and it will be interesting to compare both versions :)

I also wanted to ask you about the game rights. I read somewhere that you got the rights, how did you do it?, I've been trying to contact Rebellion, through their website, Facebook, etc ... but I have not received an answer :/

I would also like to have the approval of the original authors and if anyone can get in touch with them, I will be grateful.

Thanks in advance!
