About This File
Welcome to Firepower (Vs A.I.) V1.1.1 (VPX 10.6 rev. 3584 or later)
A first of it's kind pinball game that you can actually play and challenge a fully capable A.I. computer. (Hal-9000)
This release is both graphically and physically identical to my original Firepower but can also still be played in a vanilla state like the original.
By default the computer's level of skill is set to "Expert" . Player 2, 3 and 4 are the computer. There are four levels of difficulty to choose from. Easy, Normal, Hard and Expert.
You can pick and choose which player is human or computer and even have all four players computer if you wish (lots of fun to watch and even bet on games).
'*Use the "L" key on keyboard to select language.
'*Use Flipper Buttons to setup human and or computer players before starting game. (Green Human, Red Computer).
'*Use Magna Save buttons to select flipper bat type.
'*While pressing and holding both flipper buttons use the Magna save buttons to select difficulty. (Easy, Medium, Hard, Expert) (Legendary coming soon...)
'*Press and hold the Right Flipper Button to display player and difficulty status during game play. Logic Panel displays during DTmode only.
'*Once game is started no selections can be made or changed until game is over.
'*Once A.I. is playing, A.I. sound and visual effects can be toggled on/off by using either flipper button.
'*The A.I. can be shutdown during the A.I. turn by pressing and holding both Magna Save buttons. The player can then take control.
'*All options can be hard set in the script under Table Options as desired.
A very special thank you to rothbauerw for help with the coding and conditional logic. Slydog43 for additional coding and everyone else in the community. Vogliadicane for the cool backglass and coding.
This is something that I hope you will all enjoy as much as I have enjoyed making it. I very much plan I installing this on other tables in the near future.
Same as before I recommend turning off AO (Ambient Occlusion) in video preferences and keeping ScSp turned on.
Anything else (Anti-Aliasing, Post-proc AA) will depend on your set-up.
I also suggest going through the THX set-up to ensure that you are experiencing this table as it was intended. Enjoy...
