Future Pinball doesn't have a dedicated Tilt Bob "button / key" that I know of.

I'm not sure if it's possible to use any "keyboard key" as a control method for whatever purpose you want via script. If so, then that would be the easiest.

The other option would be to use either one of the "special" keys, or one of the 2nd flipper keys to act as a tilt bob....but they may be used for some tables.

As far as analogue nudge in FP....it will never EVER cause a TILT Warning...EVER! So it's sad there wasn't a dedicated Tilt Bob control to work with that. That's why I don't use analogue nudge for FP in my cab currently.

Digital Nudge however works excellent.


If anyone else knows of a solution...please let us know!

Not necessarily a solution, or in fact 'virtua pin 3' related, but I do recall using a hacked Microsoft Sidewinder Freestyle Pro in the past, and had it working 'OK' with FP.

Brief details can be found here... https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=23562

That is so old school! :)

Most people today use something like a KL25Z (using mjr's pinscape firmware) for their cabinet. Great piece of kit that has almost everything you could ever want for pinball.

It's not the hardware / controller that is the limiting factor.

Like i mentioned... FP analogue nudge will never ever give a TILT warning, and therefor it won't TILT the game (whereas digital nudge will)....and the post is asking for a TILT BOB type of function.
