I've been making some new wheel images, topper videos, and DMD videos for my cab for my favorite pinball for VPX.
As I make them, I will share them here.
First up is for Wheel of Fortune (Stern 2007).
This Topper, DMD, and Wheel Kit includes:
WOF-Color-Topper.mp4 - 30 Second Topper Looping MP4 Video
WOF-Color-Image-Topper.png - Static Topper PNG Image
WOF-Real-Color-DMD.mp4 - 30 Second Color DMD Looping MP4 Video
WOF-PBX-Wheel-Logo.png - WOF Wheel Image PNG
Load them into your Pinball X or similar front-end system.
All have been tested with the latest version of PBX.
Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Backglass + DMD Kit
This is a brand new Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) backglass made from a 2K scan of an original factory issued translite - (don't ask me how I managed to get it).
The new backglass is 2200 pixels wide and has been color corrected to match exactly the same coloring as the back lit translite.
I have also made the backglass compatible with 2 screen and 3 screen setups, drawing a new speaker grill and DMD area that can be turned OFF in the B2S Server settings if you don't need it. I desperately tried to make a straight 16x9 version for 3 screen users, but I gave up because the original artwork wouldn't allow me to do so with how it is laid out.
I watched a YouTube video that had specific lights that illuminated the explosion, headlight, and helicopter that flashed at specific times during gameplay, but couldn't figure out which ROM IDs I needed to use. I recreated these FX with simple 'Illumination Animations' instead including an initial "Turn On" when first started up.
I have also included a whole lot of extras for Pinball X and other front end users:
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) SPECIAL-Real-Color-DMD video MP4
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Soundtrack Audio MP3
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Wheel PNG
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Backglass-Image PNG
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Backglass+Grill PNG
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Flyer - 1 JPG
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Flyer - 2 JPG
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Instruction Card PNG
- Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Rules Sheet PDF
If you are using a REAL DMD or 3rd screen for DMD, load the Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) SPECIAL-Real-Color-DMD.mp4 as a "Real Color DMD".
Load the Barb Wire (Gottlieb 1996) Soundtrack Audio MP3 as "Table Audio".
When you scroll through your tables in PinballX when you get to the Barb Wire table, you will get a sexy show with a matching soundtrack - Warning: MP4 contain very brief partial nudity.
Please DO NOT use portions of the kit or backglass to make a NEW backglass or kit unless you ask permission. I went to considerable trouble and effort to assembled / gather / create all these materials and original images. I am sharing them here as original works and should remain this way unless you ask permission to modify.
The Walking Dead - Premium (Stern 2014) Deluxe Backglass Set
I created 2 new The Walking Dead - Premium (Stern 2014) Backglass using a new "heads in fishtanks" image. Both totally started from scratch. All text and logos have been replaced with higher quality images to create a new clean backglass.
- The Walking Dead Premium (Stern 2014) 4x3 Basic.directB2S 1920x1441
Basic version that matches the original in color, quality, and size. Has a built in animation for the backglass turning ON when first started. Like the original, there are no other bells and whistles.
- The Walking Dead Premium (Stern 2014) 16x9 Deluxe.directB2S - 1920x1080
Because I used a 16x9 monitor for backglass in my cab, I wanted to "resize" the original backglass to fit nicely in the screen. When I tried to resize the original so everything didn't get squished or loose the aspect ration, I had big areas of black on either side of the image ... So, I decided to make this the super deluxe 16x9 - 1920x1080 version with a built in animation of "fish-tank-bubbles" which look AWESOME in my cab - even though it isn't "exactly" like the original.
This is a fairly heavy CPU backglass with 30 cycling frames of "bubbles" animation. If it slows down your table playback, simply use the other one.
Just because this is listed as the "Premium" version doesn't mean you HAVE to use it with the premium TWD. Simply rename the file to match your existing table and you're good to go.
Which one do you like better?
This is a new / original 16x9 backglass for Siggi's awesome Iron Maiden (Fire Power) VPX table.
What was supposed to be fairly simple as far as backglasses go, turned out to be pretty tough to do ... so I ended up making 2 different versions, so you can choose which one you want to use with your system.
Iron Maiden (Original 2019) FP Mod.directB2S has animated lighting FX and is a low CPU usage backglass. I built in an effect that shows the backglass turning on when you first run it.
Iron Maiden (Original 2019) FP Mod-Animated.directB2S contains a very cool 'SMOKE EFFECT' that runs on the screen behind 'Eddie'. This is a heavier CPU usage backglass, so if it slows down your pin playfield use the other one. This one does not include the lighting fx, because it was too much for the B2S Server to handle.
I've tested this with the frpwr_b7.zip rom (which is what the table uses) and both run fine in my cabinet. I am torn as to which one I like better.
Been working on this for 2 1/2 days, and my wife thinks I'm nuts ... but I am very happy with the result.
Night of the Living Dead '68 (Original 2018) Mod
by HiRez00 and Xenonph
This is my first official mod / table release, and I wanted to do something unique and special with it.
This was a labor of love pinball table created as a dedication to the late, great filmmaker George A. Romero, who single-handedly created and stamped the "zombie" genre with his original classic "Night of the Living Dead" in 1968. This film set the benchmark and tone for all "zombie" movies and TV shows that followed. Had he not made this great film that terrified millions of people, the zombie trend that is now upon us would have never existed, ever.
How many filmmakers created a genre that has been imitated, copied and downright ripped off like the one he started on a shoe-string budget? None.
When I first saw this incredible B&W classic in the late 70s - early 80s, it absolutely changed my life. I was in awe of how he was able to create tension and fear without ANY blood and guts at all. It turns out, when they made the film, they had a very small budget and couldn't afford anything like that ... but DID add these elements in later films like "Dawn of the Dead" in 1978.
For his amazing creativity, wonderful personality, and moral message within each of his films, he was truly one of a kind, and will be missed.
He may be gone ... but his incredible movies will be watched and remembered forever.
George A. Romero (1940 – 2017) - father, film maker, friend, may you rest in peace.
This is a graphics and sound mod of Out of Sight (Gottlieb 1974).
Thanks to Loserman76 for allowing us to mod his original table. I chose his table because it played perfectly to what I wanted for this new table design and could be adjusted and modified fairly easily. His exact words when asked permission were: "Go for it!".
Original Out of Sight (Gottlieb 1974) can be found here: http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=13254
Every graphic / image from the original table has been re-drawn (from scratch), heavily modified, or swapped out completely for new ones for a brand new layout.
Multiple elements were also moved and adjusted to work with the new layout design.
This table would not have been possible without the hard work, dedication and collaboration from Xenonph. Well known for his great sound and "flashers" mods to several tables, this time around he REALLY "stepped up to the plate" and took a BIG swing at adding all the additional features of sound, lighting, and additional extensive scripting this table needed. I am very grateful to have collaborated with such a talent as him. With every project, he goes over and above what is expected and never ceases to amaze me to how much he contributes to making tables and here on the forums. I can't thank him enough for weeks of time he put into making this table with me.
This new table is NOT a solo release.
This is a collaborative release from both me (HiRez00) AND Xenonph.
There are 2 versions of this Night of the Living Dead (1968) table you can download: NOTLD-68 Mod v.1.x and NOTLD-68 Grunge-Mod v.1.x.
NOTLD-68 Mod v.1.x is the standard 'clean and new' looking version.
NOTLD-68 Grunge-Mod v.1.x is a totally 'distressed' and 'grunge' looking version as if this table was originally designed by Gottlieb and built and then stored in an old barn or warehouse for 40+ years ... to be recently discovered and played.
Both tables play exactly the same and use the same custom 'Music' files. The grunge mod started as an experiment to see if we could do it realistically, and it turned out amazing. I am partial to the 'Grunge-Mod' version and prefer that version now.
Because this was originally a EM (Electro-Mechanical) table, there are no ROMs to download or install.
Place the files in the 'music' folder in your music folder located where you installed Visual Pinball - VPX.
(DO NOT PLAY THE MUSIC AS THIS MAY ADD A TAG TO MP3 AND RENDER MP3 USELESS!!)
If you would like to change the game options / settings (3 ball and 5 ball and bonus options), when game is not in progress, holding down left flipper for about 3-5 seconds will bring up the options menu. Left Flipper selects item and Right flipper changes option.
If you plan on using this table in a cabinet, we have created 2 versions of the backglass, one in approx 4x3 aspect ratio and one in 16x9 aspect ratio for widescreen monitors.
You can download the original backglass files here:
DOF commands (as in the original table) are included within the script, but you will need to add the functionality to your DirectOutputConfig.ini file as this is an EM table that has not been added to DOF.
For those of you (like me) that are using a PinDMD3, we have included a folder of DMD images and MP4 videos you can use in conjuncture with whatever front end software you are using so your DMD will not remain blank or static during game play.
All pics, trademarks, logos and sounds belong to their respectful owners. This table is for personal home, and non-commercial entertainment use only. Most of the media used to create this table is freely available on the internet and should be consider as non-profit fan art.
Night of the Living Dead '68 (Original 2018) B2S Backglass files.
In order to accommodate just about everyone playing new table "mod" creation, we decided it would be best to make backglass files that would suit everyone's setup.
There are 2 version of the backglass, a 4x3 version scaled to the size originally used for the Out of Sight (Gottlieb 1974) table which this mod was based on, but also include a 16x9 version in the correct aspect ratio for "cabinet" players using 16x9 monitors.
Thanks to Loserman76 for the original table / backglass and to my collaborator Xenonph who without his help these new table(s) wouldn't have been possible.

TRON Classic (Original 2018) Backglass ... the pinball that SHOULD have been made in 1982!
These are the animated backglass files for TRON Classic (Original 2018).
This project was my first VPX table and also my first collaboration with Xenonph. This was the seemingly perfect combo of my graphics capabilities and his amazing scripting, sound, and just pure dauntless energy to do something truly fantastic. I can not even express in words how great it was to work with someone for my first VPX table that had so much enthusiasm, skill, and concentration on all the details. It was not only a great learning experience doing things I've never done before (learning VPX and B2S Backglass Designer) , but also a tremendous amount of FUN, too!
In order to accommodate just about everyone playing this extremely detailed "mod" of a great table, we decided it would be best to created backglass files that would suit everyone's setup.
There are 2 version of the backglass, the original 4x3 version that was originally used for the Gottlieb Panthera table which this mod was based on, but also include a 16x9 version in the correct aspect ratio for "cabinet" players using 16x9 monitors.
Xenonph thanks all the contributors involved in the actual "table" files, but I just also want to thank all those who contributed to the scripting, functions, and inspiration that make this TRON Classic a truly great table to play.
I am not being biased, but this is by far my favorite table now.

I couldn't find a good image / logo for PInball X online, so I decided to sit down an make one in Photoshop, completely re-drawing the title text.
Fortunately there are a ton of different (although low rez) versions / samples online because the table is based on the 1979 movie with the same name. I was able to match very close to the original artwork with some "custom" tweaks here and there.
Torch (Gottlieb 1980)
Re-Drawn from scratch to match as best as possible to original because "font" doesn't exist.
Hi-Resolution PNG with transparency.
