  1. I couldn't agree more with both comments above!
  2. now this is witty! Talking Heads - Sex Pistols? - Visage - and? (it's not Depeche Mode, is it?)
    I think it's cool. One could say ist's not a classic backglass, because of the digital animation, but on the other hand the table itself is also not a classic table (e.g. the animated torches), so it fits very well. It's different and it's cool in itself.
  3. View File Fathom (Bally 1981) Vintage Mod my first table. this is a heavy mod based on 32assassin's great Fathom, which is based on Unclewilly's version, so all credits and thanks go to these two. What I did: - completely remade playfield in 4k resolution (by stitching images from the web and partially redrawing, even bought a font for that job!) - completely remade plastics in 4k resolution (same way) - made new bumper caps from scratch - reworked or changed many objects, images and materials - completely remade all lights and illumination - apron reworked - "live" mirror metal wall at the top (only the ball is not reflected, don't know, how to do that) - and many other things, I don't remember anymore Physics (only minor changes): - made the table slightly slower - ! repositioned the rubber posts at the wicked vertical outlane, so that there's at least a little chance so save the ball from draining by nudging ! Btw, this is also the case for the real table as seen in videos on the web, so no cheating. The aim of this version was to get it as close to the original vintage table (yellow tint, vintage light bulbs a.s.o) As I already mentiond in the WIP thread, I will also make a second version, which will look like a polished Fathom with LED lights, plastics and playfield repros a.s.o. The desktop view needs a liitle more work, but is already quite ok now. Maybe I'll release an update in the future. Big thanks go to roar, who provided me with images of plastics and to all the cool people, who made and contributed to VP and the great always helping community!

  5. and you won't tell anybody where?
  6. and here is my grill mod of Wildman's dB2S. Built the original LE grill in Photoshop. This is for 2 display setups.
  7. View File Star Trek (Stern 2012) LE Grill Mods for 2 display setups Made some Grill Mods from Wildman's Star Trek dB2s's (thanks Wildman for permission to upload). Built the LE grill with PS from scratch. Though it is only authentic for the Enterprise translite, I made one for all of them. You never know, what it's good for. IMPORTANT: To use these only makes sense for 2 display setups, where the grill is shown within the backglass. All others use the originals from Wildman.

  8. does it only hang up, when you load it via PinballX or also directly from VPX?
  9. Well I get it now, thanks a lot for your detailed explanations!! So you use the ROM name (from the error) to find the correct entry within the xml. Isn't it possible that you parse UP until you are at the "game" level, read the name="..." and then look for the apropriate directB2s file, because "Additional info: the naming convention for a direct2bs is normally: tablename.direct2bs (like in your case VPX - Demolition Man 1.2 (Williams1994).direct2bs)" that's what most if not all people (including me) use atm*. Then we would not have to change anything at all. *OR description.direct2bs (in your case Demolition Man (Williams 1994).direct2bs)"... I never eard of this one before.
  10. I have 2 questions: 1. Just out of curiosity, when parsing the PinballX xml, why does it not just try to find "game name" and search for the same named .directB2s and use it? This is exactly what's given anyways for most users: the diectB2s file has the same name as in "game name" in the xml file. Wouldn't this be the easiest way? 2. As it is now, can I just fill the "rom" tag with the same as is written into "game name"? Like this: <game name="VPX - Demolition Man 1.2 (Williams1994)"> <description>Demolition Man (Williams 1994)</description> <rom>VPX - Demolition Man 1.2 (Williams1994)</rom> <manufacturer>Williams</manufacturer> <year>1994</year> <type>SS</type> <hidedmd>True</hidedmd> <hidebackglass>True</hidebackglass> <enabled>True</enabled> <rating>0</rating> <alternateexe>VPinballX.exe</alternateexe> </game> I really don't want to mess with renaming all 189 directB2s files and this would be the easiest way to make it work. Sorry, if I misunderstood something basic, not sure about that Edit: I think my second question was answered with a comment from you at vpforum: " The Pinballx XML file (or Hyperpin xml file) can contain a <rom> tag, just enter the game name/rom name, and it uses that to find the description name. " So the answer is: yes, I can Edit 2: no it does not work (shouldn't it from the desription above?) <gamename>VPX - Demolition Man 1.2 (Williams1994)</gamename> also does not work and a third question: how can it parse the xml, when it doesn't know the tablename, which is the main problem? From comments over at vpforum I have the impression, that you consider the description from the xml as the correct name for the dirctB2s file? This is not true. the correct name is only in the name="bla bla bla". The desription can be something like "Demolition Man VPX version from person XY and I got it in 2016" whereas the directB2s is VPX - Demolition Man 1.2 (Williams1994).directB2s.
  11. fist wow: I totally appreciate your efforts, it is really working by renaming the dB2S files with the ROM names using your derivate. But, second wow: now things get really complicated and this means really a lot of work for those having the problem. It is not only renaming the files, but before we have to check, which ones make problems, then go into the script of each table to find the ROM used here (I like others sometimes have different ROMs for each table). This is like setting up your cab from scretch. so, wouldn't it be better to contact Tom Spiers (the maker of PinballX) to address this problem? As far as I understood (yes, I understood only half of what was written here) and from what I experience it is a problem of PinballX... Please don't get my comment as ranting, what you do here is great. Thanks!

  13. Tried it yesterday, look and sounds and music are very good. But is this a desktop-only version? In my cab I only get the rotated desktop view. Edit: and I'm pretty sure, you won't get authorization over at vpforums
