About This File

Christmas Pinball
 
v2.0
Connected flashers to coin insert, and other events.
Adjusted FS POV so table is wider.
Fixed DT Backdrop lights.
Added Plastics change to Left MagnaSave Key.(5 different colors to choose from.)
Added Bumper change to Right MagnaSave Key.(23 different "Bows and Ornaments" to choose from.)
Added GI Lights color change to 2 or Buy-In Key.(5 different colors to choose from.)
Added GI effect to hit events. (Used JPSalas script method.)
So now the GI lighting blinks if you hit Upper Kicker, and drain,(blinks while Santa says ho ho ho), and lower targets only when a new pic is displayed.
Added coin sound on Insert coin event.
Included 3 wheels for cabinet users.
Included new animated Fireplace dB2S backglass, with table download. (28 frames of animation!!)
(I want to thank my friend HiRez00 for animating the flames in the fireplace backglass!!)
(He did an amazing job!! I think it is perfect for setting the Christmas Pinballin' mood!!)

v1.0

Added 32 Christmas songs. 11 are played during game. 21 more are played during attract mode. 1 of 3 music box songs is played with drain hit.
Also added over 23 sound effects.
Added 3 flashers using Fluppers Flasher Resource table (Big Thanks Flupper!!) . Red, Green and Blue. Triggered by bumpers and other areas.
Added "plungerreleasefree" sound effect from BorgDogs Buck Rogers VPX table, so if no ball is in plunger, it plays "plungerreleasefree" sound effect, and no others.
I added 76 pics to the projector.
These pics are activated in order.
They are activated by hitting the upper SANTA Rollovers,(Not the SANTA on left side above kicker.), and the "A" (Center Target), and spelling SANTA.
Then any subsequent hit on CANDY targets, or the A in SANTA,(Center Target.), triggers next pic.

**********************************************************

The table I used for this mod is Lizards amazing VPX Sexy Girl (Arkon 1980)!!(Which is a Conversion Kit mod of Playboy.)
I want to thank Lizard for making an excellent table, and for allowing mods without permission.
I also want to thank anyone else involved!! Great Work Everyone!!

Info on Lizards original table download page...
This table has come to life with the contributions of many.
Thanks go to Destruk and Mickey for the original table
                     ICPjuggla and gtxjoe for bits and pieces i used from there bally playboy table
                     Arngrim for the DOF and controller code
                    Steely,pinball Ken,Koadic,Jimmyfingers and Rascal for all the ball rolling and associated code
                    Cyberpez for the changeable instruction cards (Which can be changed near the top of the script)
                    Seraph74 who provided the projector code mods to swap the images

Remember to thank the original authors of this table, as they are the ones who made this work of art.
I just added sound effects and changed graphics.

I also want to thank Steve "Slydog43" for which these table mods would not be possible to make if it weren't for his help!!

I also want to thank Thalamus for telling me about the rubber hit height needing to be lowered to 27, because it was set at 30, and this will cause weird ball behaviour. I only lowered the ones that were set on 30. So the physics should be better.

I also would like to thank Allknowing2012 and Gtxjoe for helping me with adding timers to script. With Gtxjoes example script he showed me, I was able to somewhat fix the game over sounds, and when counting huge bonus after ball drain.

I also want to thank HiRez00 for animating the flames on the Fireplace backglass!! Simply amazing!!

**********************************************************

YOU CAN ADD YOUR OWN FAMILY PICS TO THIS TABLES PROJECTOR!!!
MAKE THIS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, BY PLAYING A PINBALL TABLE THAT HAS YOUR PERSONAL PHOTOS DISPLAYED DURING GAME!!
HERE IS HOW YOU ADD YOUR PICS...

FIRST YOU NEED TO NAME YOUR PICS LIKE SO..
"pic0" IS THE PIC THAT IS DISPLAYED WHEN GAME IS STARTED. SO IF YOU WANT TO SURPRISE A SPECIAL SOMEONE, SO THEY DON'T SEE PIC UNTIL PROJECTOR IS ACTIVATED, START WITH NAMING "pic1"
IF YOU WANT YOUR PIC DISPLAYED WHEN TABLE IS STARTED, NAME YOUR PIC "pic0"

pic0
pic1
pic2
pic3
pic4
pic5
pic6
pic7
pic8
pic9
pic10

and so on...

SO NOW THAT YOU HAVE NAMED YOUR PICS, YOU NEED TO IMPORT THEM INTO THE TABLE.
THIS IS VERY EASY, SO DON'T GET OVERWHELMED.
WITH THE TABLE LOADED INTO THE VISUAL PINBALL EDITOR, CLICK THE "TABLE" TAB AT TOP OF EDITOR. THEN CLICK "IMAGE MANAGER"
YOU WILL NOW SEE ON UPPER RIGHT OF WINDOW THAT POPS UP, A TAB THAT SAYS "IMPORT", CLICK IT AND BROWSE TO YOUR PIC OR PICS AND IMPORT THEM.
THAT'S IT!!! BE SURE TO SAVE TABLE AFTERWARDS TO KEEP YOUR PICS IN TABLE.
NOW ENJOY THE SHOW!!!

*************************************************************************************

You can set this table for 4 players game and the pics don't start over for new player, so you can progress through the pics with each of the 4 players turns.

I included a nvram file that will give you the easiest settings to try to accomplish viewing all 76 pics.
You can change these settings by pressing F6 on your keyboard, which will bring up dipswitch menu.
(The included nvram file has the easiest settings!! Also playing 4 player game helps!!!)

(PLACE INCLUDED MUSIC IN MUSIC FOLDER LOCATED WHERE VISUAL PINBALL IS INSTALLED)

I HAVE MADE 2 DIFFERENT dB2S BACKGLASSES. ONE IS A FIREPLACE, AND THE OTHER IS SANTAS WORKSHOP.
FIND THEM HERE...

Also a new animated dB2S Fireplace backglass, animation made by HiRez00 included in download.

All pics, trademarks, Logos and sounds belong to their respectful owners. This table is for personal home, and non-commercial use only. This table should be used for educational purposes only.

Hope you enjoy!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
