Follow-up on ProPinball excellence

I wrote a post last week concerning my correspondence with Adrian Barritt of the ProPinball team and the ball visibility, in particular when playing on the iPhone. The answer at that time was that they were going to take care of this. One week later this is already taken care of.

The Barnstorm team are prepping Timeshock for public release on iDevices. Given that the iTunes store is closed during the Christmas vacations this will have to wait till January. In the meantime some minor bugs are getting fixed and some features are being implemented. Among the ones that are already there is the ball visibility.

In the screenshot one can read "bright highlight added to ball in order to make it easier to see". When Timeshock comes out we'll see if this is suffices (and you know that I am a heckler when it comes to ball visibility) but the important thing is that they reacted immediately to this users' suggestion.

By the way, I find the move of the Barnstorm people to release TImeshock for iOS immediately and then continue work on more platforms quite clever. Selling Timeshock on the iTunes store will ensure some fresh funds making the development of the remaining versions more serene.


  1. Merry Christmas to you both, Vasili and Marco!! Doc...
