Pinball Dreams: Nightmare

Ok you all remember Pinball Dreams - it's been one of my fave games back in the days and I spent countless hours on it and its sequel - I even bought the boxed set on PC but the other additional tables (tarantula over all) sucked big time.

I remember one thing: I've never managed to 'complete' Nightmare. It seems like the table locks up at a certain point. To test it widely, I bought it three different cracked versions at the time, and Nightmare always locked up. That is, the bonuses froze and the ball didn't score anymore. You just kept playing and nothing happened, only the side bouncers worked.
I tried it on WinUAE too, and dowloaded it, but it locked as well after a while. On the Amiga I could get only as far as the 11th hour, then it froze and au revoir.

Is that a programming bug straight from the software house? Has it ever worked?

my - actually... what troubled me is that the emulated one behaved right like the ones I had at home.
Too bad the PC version I bought original hadn't pinball dreams in it.

Strange . . . all the cracks I've played with Pinball Dreams, worked very well with Nightmare . . . . I had problems with Steel Wheels on the onedisk version though.

Too bad I don't have that one anymore

What kind of problems?

I remember that Nightmare was the table I had the highest score... I can't remember now what it was, but it was a whole lot bigger than all the other scores in other tables, and I never saw that happening.

And my version was cracked. By Fairlight, if I remember correctly.

My cracked version of Pinball Dreams worked perfectly, but like Akira pointed out, why not just *legally* download the WHDLoad version now?

Enjoy!

Confirmed. I only ever played the FLT crack, though
But no lockups or anything of that sort.

Pinball Dreams has better graphics, but Fantasies is more interesting. Btw. 12 billion points in Beat Box!!
