Entex Gameroom Tele-Pong simulator (v0.1)

Seems that people didn't guess which Epoch Electrotennis clone i was talking about so here's the answer: the Entex Gameroom Tele-Pong

and also these clones:

 Binatone TV Gaming Unit model 01-4990

 (Unknown Brand) Television Gaming Unit (picture from Pong-Picture-Page)

 (Japanese Electronic Discount store) Tele-Pong (yup...the Tele-Pong has also been sold in Japan! - sorry no picture(s)) and the final one from Korea:

Hanu Electronics TV Tennis

 I made this simulator and the Epoch one at the same time (in 2013) since both is the same game play but uses a different scoring. If you want to try out the simulator, just click on the link in the upper right (sorry, only win 32-bit version available for now).

I was thinking of combining both the Entex Gameroom Tele-Pong and the Epoch Electrotennis simulators into one since they both have the same game play and update it to display either 4:3 or 16:9. I notice on a real console that when the ball is faster, the sound and serving are also faster and if the ball is slow, both sound and serving is slower which isn't done in the simulator. Will also need to add this in a next version (my bad on this one!).

But in the meantime, enjoy this other simulator! =)
