  1. View File Beach Bums 1.0 (2018) Welcome to the Beach! Surf's up Brah! Get your sex wax and board ready for a radical ride on the gnarliest waves and unleash your Big Kahuna!! This is BEACH BUMS!! Hey all, thank you to everyone on this awesome site for giving me the opportunity to share my table. So, since this is my first attempt at anything Visual Pinball, please go easy on me. lol. *gulp* First of all, a short backstory to why I even did this in the first place... A few years ago, I bought a real Fascination cocktail pinball called "Roy Clark, The Entertainer". Nothing against Roy Clark (and Hee Haw), but I decided I wanted to refurbish and re-theme the table (see before and after pic). The theme itself was based off of my favorite slot machine IGT's "Catch-A-Wave". There were only 2000 plays on this table when I bought it and it played perfectly. Unfortunately, after re-theming it and putting it back together, it doesn't work anymore. I don't know what I did, and I've had pin techs come look at it, but still can't fix it. Anyway, backstory aside, I decided to use all my original artwork, along with new artwork, and models, to bring you a VPX version of my theme and here it is! I'd like to thank everyone for helping me make this table possible... *First and foremost, I want to thank BorgDog for his original Hollywood Heat table, and for letting me mod it to begin with. *Thank you again, BorgDog, for all your scripting guru knowledge and help (and for your patience) *Thank you xenonph for all your help from the very beginning. Couldn't have done it without you too. *Thank you Hauntfreaks for your B2S help! *Thank you Flupper for your awesomely beautiful ramp. *And a HUGE thank you to the VPX and VPM developers, who make this all possible!! Note: Beach Bums uses a slightly modded "hlywoodh" rom for scoring. It is included in this file, although it will interfere, if you have an existing HH rom, sorry :(. Also included is background and bonus music MP3's that will need to install in your VPX music folder. Don't forget to turn off all original HH sounds, changeable in the script, to hear the included MP3's and such. Thank you to everyone and I hope you all have as much fun playing this table as I did making it.

  8. REVISED: Script GURU needed...

    Hey everyone, I had a few people ask for a bit more information on what exactly I needed for the script on my Hollywood Heat mod. Hopefully someone out there looks at this and realizes it’s an easy addition to the script, so here goes. I’m using Borgdog’s HH and setting the rom sounds to off in the script and using my own background music, which is located in the music folder. Basically, all I need to do is play music and/or sound effects when the balls are released for the multiball bonus, then ends when it’s over. Basic sequence: 1. Balls release. 2. background music volume decreases. 3. multiball bonus music/sounds play until the 2 released balls have drained and you’re back to one (or none if you lose all at once). 4. multiball bonus music/sounds ends or fades out. 5. background music returns to normal volume. The trick is that when you still have locked or captive balls on the field, then the bonus music doesn’t activate when the balls are automatically released when the game is over. Can this be done? Please help if you can or at least point me in the right direction. I am far from a scripter, so any help would surely be appreciated. Thank you all in advance. Cheers!
  9. Scripting guru needed...

    Hey everyone. I’m working on a mod of Hollywood Heat and I want to add script that basically hasn’t been tried before with this particular table. I was almost done then I hit a wall trying to figure it out. It’s basically a multiball tweak. I’m sure one of the many great scripters out there could easily do it, so if anyone could help or at least lead me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it. PM me for the details. Thank you all in advance.

    Hey all, ED is such a great table (and movie), I thought it deserved another BG. Thank you Horsepin for a great game. Enjoy!
  14. @Thalamus: Tried that, still the same error. @HP, yep, patched 1.0.9 and 1.0.10. HP, your table and DMD are great. I guess I'll just live without the BG. I'm stumped.
  15. Okay, I did update to the latest file located here on VPU. Installed the original and then updated to the latest within the download files. It's still doing it. Here is what I get after enabling directb2s in the game's settings... with the table, pov and directb2s in my VPX table folder. Is there a newer version out there somewhere other than what is available on here in the downloads? I cannot get my b2s server to start the evil dead directb2s from my VPX tables folder. Everything else works, just no BG.
  16. Hey Horsepin. Great game btw. Love the movie. I got the table running and it plays just fine. I positioned my DMD on my second screen but at scale 1, it seems small compared to all the videos I've seen that people have shown. The config file won't let me set the scale to 1.5 but only to 2 which makes it too big. Is there a way to resize somewhere in between scales 1 and 2? I played with the dot sizes and it enlarges all the text but leaves the video the same size. Also, I have no Backglass image. Am I doing something wrong or missing a setting somewhere? Is there a separate directb2s out there somewhere? Thanks in advance if you can help. UPDATE: I went in to settings to enable the directb2s and loaded the game and I got a message saying no screenres.txt. I copied my VPX screenres file and put it in evildead in proc. I loaded the table again and it said directb2s doesn't exist. So I found a directb2s, put it in the VPX folder with the table and tried to load one last time and I got the following errors... I hit ok and VPX crashes. I was just playing this table. What the heck did I do wrong?
  17. Ok, I finally got P-ROC installed. Weird thing. I moved the ED table and POV to VPX tables folder and when I load from VPX, it shows the DMD loading animations then disappears.. ? The table's attract mode works but when I tried to add coins or press start, it crashes.. ? For a split second you see the ball load but that's it. On the other hand, i tried loading the table through VPX from P-ROC/games and it loaded with the DMD, video and audio worked and I was even able to interact with buttons. Attract mode worked then as well. Tried pushing start and it crashed as well. Loaded it again and the audio works but no DMD showing now. Table still crashes when pushing start. And on top of everything else, I get absolutely nothing for the backglass, just a black screen on my 2nd monitor. Did I miss a step or two? Thanks in advance if someone could help.
  18. [New Future Pinball] Iron Maiden

    View File Iron Maiden Finally! Hello, to all my fellow pinball Edheads! Newbie here, and this is my first time modding an FP table, or any table for that matter, so please go easy on me. Iron Maiden is my favorite band and this is dedicated to them and all of the fans. This table was built in FP using BAM, so it is best played that way. This is strictly a cabinet table only(the desktop version looks terrible, sorry guys) This table is very large and I apologize in advance for any inconvenience, I just couldn't stop adding things! lol. Thank you Francisco666, Slamt1lt and anyone else that has worked off of the original Earthshaker table. Thank you Bruce, Steve, Dave, Adrian, Nicko and Janick for giving us the best music of our lives! Thank you Derek Riggs and all of the other awesome artists who have contributed their talents over the years and of course a huge thanks to Mr. Edward T. Head! Please feel free to give feedback. I look forward to any opinions or suggestions you may have. Enjoy! UP THE IRONS! Submitter watacaractr Submitted 12/01/2017 Category Future Pinball DOFLinx Tables

    Hello ifyoucanthinkofit. It was built using BAM for basically cabinets only, 3 monitors. The ball is normal so you may have to tweak your video settings in FP.

  22. Thank you for the quick response on my last post, worked perfectly. Different issue this time. The Pink Floyd table for FP, that I downloaded, has a DMD added in. How do you get the balls in the DMD to count up from 1 instead of down from 5? Not sure how to do this in the script. Also, how do you change the font of the score display in the DMD? Can you even do this? And one last thing, how do you add animation in the DMD? Example: Dark side of the moon logo or something cool like that? Is there a program that allows a newbie like me to customize a DMD? Please help if you can and thank you in advance.

  24. Script issue with Future Pinball table... Please help!

    Thank you outhere for the link. Worked perfectly!
  25. Hello everyone. Absolute newbie to FP AND SCRIPTING. I just downloaded the Pink Floyd version of Earthshaker. It's presented as a 3 ball game but in the script you can change it to 5 balls per game. Well it works but the scoreboard reads Ball 1, Ball 0, Ball 1, Ball 2 and Ball 3. Instead of Ball 1, Ball 2, Ball 3, Ball 4 and Ball 5. ???? AND the DMD that was created extra for this reads the same. Is there something in the script I need to change to get the balls to display correctly? Also, how do you set it to play more than one player? And finally, how do you change the credits from 25 cents per game to 50 cents per game for 5 balls? Please help if someone can and thank you in advance. Brian.
