    I never played Visual Pinball, but I might play it from time to time if there was a pinball game for Linux. I really enjoy pinball games, so if there was something for Linux, I wouldn't mind playing it.

    I know there's Emilia Pinball, but I wasn't too crazy about it when I tried it.

    Went through the code and their license and think it smells of windows guys that do not write portable code. I have no experience with visual studio but this project seems to be focused as that is the only IDE that you are supposed to use. Could be portable though, only skimmed over the code

    Thanks for taking a look at the code Bölvağur.
    Maybe the code can be used as a concept only for a new cross platform version?

    im not saying it might not be possible to rewrite few parts of the code to make everything work. I just dont have enough experience with what they are using and only skimmed over the code and noticed how obvious it was they are relying on visual studio only.
