Frequently Asked Questions
Many “home brew” and 3rd party video pinball machines are built differently, unfortunately there is not a “one solution fits all”. However, after extensive testing, we believe we have managed to create an easy to install software/cabinet mode solution for Pinball Arcade that matches majority of cabinets. With thanks to the pinball community, there has been a number of 3rd party add-on software that will allow the software to be used on almost any machine.
Cabinet Mode has been built to support (default) vertical monitor pinball game play, with up to 3 monitors (vertical main playfield, horizontal score screen, and horizontal backglass). It is designed for xbox controller key mapping and whilst it supports Windows 7, please use Windows 10 which also adds 3D Kinect gameplay support to all 76 tables.
Please note, the Steam Unlock Key version is only suitable if you already own the Pinball Arcade software titles (76 games) and you must connect your PC to the internet at all times for the key to function and connect to FarSight Studio’s servers. The Generic/Arcooda Version Cabinet Software offers you a standalone software package (76 games are included) and you do not need to keep your cabinet connected to the internet.
Before ordering, please check your cabinet specifications carefully and review the FAQ section for further advice.
the system works great!
That is marvelous. You made my day / month year and coming Christmas
With the Arcooda software I almost feel like I’m playing the real thing.
I’ve set everything up and it looks and plays wonderfully on my 2-screen setup!
Definitely feels more like I am playing a real table now. Even without a cabinet. I really want to build one now.
I just got the key this past Friday and love it. I even believe it plays better and looks way better than the original mode. I love it.
For Arcooda Pinball Arcade, I am thrilled, it looks fantastic. I am very happy with the purchase.
This Arcooda deal is the solution I always wanted. I may reconsider building a cabinet now. I’m stoked.
Vertigo Cabinet – I think its absolutely fantastic and adds a lot to the realism of the machine and I am really ecstatic about it.
it’s awesome! Once you set it, it just works. I love the new camera angles, I love how it all fits together ….. because this works so well!
