This is the last version of Future Pinball released in  2010. The others past version had a time-bomb at the end of the year for the developer to be sure users always have the more recent version. But for the last version, he didn't add this limit, perhaps because he planned to have a break with this project. The about version show even if it is the version.

What works



Open tables

Launch tables


What does not

You can launch tables but you can not play because Future Pinball needs admin rights to be fully functional, that is not possible with Wine. Happily there is a workaround.


What was not tested

Additional Comments

To play tables, you have to install some DLL: 1) Download dcom98 here: 2) Open the exe with file-roller and extract this files: oleaut32.dll asycfilt.dll in the system32 folder of your FP install 3) Download Windows Script 5.7 here: Open the exe with file-roller and extract this file: vbscript.dll in the system32 folder of your FP install 4) In a terminal, open wine config: $ winecfg go to "Applications" tab and choose "WIndows XP" version. Then go to libraries tab and add this line: oleaut32.dll "native,builtin" Everything should work now, enjoy! PS1: if some tables crash at start, in FP "Preferences", "editor options", deactivate "load image into table editor" PS2: on Ubuntu, if you have audio distortion, use the official Ubuntu Wine version which is pulseaudio compatible PS3: if you have sound problem like: - volume too high - echoes - extraneous sounds - some graphics glitchs It's a known bug in Future Pinball when vertical sync is off. --> activate vertical sync on
