    in Germany there´s no shop where you can purchase the mot-ion kit.

    You can also buy it at nanotech.

    http://nanotechent.com/mot-ionkit.php

    If you use only VP, you don´t need to buy it, because VP doesn´t support the digital plunger. A fine adjustment at the ball shoot isn´t possible.

    Only FP support the nanotech digital plunger.

    you have that reversed fp doesnt support it but, visual pinball does. Also at the rate they are available it'll take you 3 months to get it and only a dozen or so tables support it at this point but, more are being added all the time.

    I think you both have it wrong, I'm pretty sure FP and VP work fine with the Digital Plunger. I'll confirm once I get mine in within the next 2 days.

    For FP tables, it works 100%. For VP tables, they have to be scripted to be compatible.

    I'm working on MODs to be released soon, and there is a topic at VPF with the 'how to' to get every table working .... http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=13655

    Change the parameters switches are on and off. I made a plunger using a djmixer fader a pen and some springs. one side of the dj mixer fader is on the other is off I just changed the on off. from there you can make the axis more sensitive or not. Keep in mind I just used a usb controller and soldered switches to the existing buttons. instead of getting an ipac. tonnes cheaper. and easier to set up as the game controller allready had the drivers. I just downloaded Joy to key for the VP tables. and on futurepinbal I chose the gamepad as my controller of choice. worked perfect the first time plugging it in. just set all the buttons to what I wanted them to in the Futurepinball and started playing . It sure felt good to get the feel I was going for. as for an accellerometer for the tilt, I took my ground wire. and soldered it to a peice of tinfoil. and 3 other buttons I soldered springs to so that I could place a pinball on the tin foil. when ever I bumped the cab the ball would roll on the tinfoil and bump a spring. which spring it bumped would make contact closing the circut and making it trigger the nudge that I had configured to the button on the controller. Electronic switches are all the same. on or off. I am not an electronics wiz or anything. just figured it would work that way after learning that it was just all on or off.

    I actually plan on doing the same thing with a full size plunger. But With two micro switches( one is really only needed) but you can do this for a third of the price. $30 bucks for a williams plunger and abour 2 bucks for the microswitch I got the USB game controller for a dollar at one of those dollarstores. happ arcadebuttons are cheap about $3 to $5 each
    . no need to spend $130 for something that is easy to do. Ill post a video of what I have done so far.

    The DIY kits are either a great hit or a great miss..

    When they work, and it takes time to get them down, they are flawless...

    But over time, they start to fail, and at least with VP, you will have to make changes to each table to make the,m work.

    Bottom line, works perfect when done right.

    cons... You don't know how to do it right, so be prepared for learning alot of code or kissing alot of ass... lol

    And most importantly.... Order from Noah... He was able to buy in bulk, and he will be upfront about stock, and give you a fair price.

    Ordering from Nano tech = piss poor customer serves, and a 2 to 4 month delay getting your product.

    Noah in my experience has always been a upfront guy, and honest, almost too honest... ( yeah noah, i know my wife is fat... lol )

    But he wont screw you over and youll get your product in a good reasonable time.

    I'm what you call an Expert....Don't try this at home!
