not bad, looks like you have your gravity setting pretty low cause the ball bounces quite a bit, but at the same time it looks precisely the opposite when the last domino (or whatever that is) strikes the ball to make it start going down the track... have you played with object weights? i can't remember but i swear you can alter them...

I would like to appologise...

Due to commitments to something else for SM and life in general, this has totaly fallen by the wayside. I have a partial model, but I will not enter it into the final...

Good Luck to the others who entered, and I will get this sorted and finished into some finished state. Project On Hold...
