  2. shivaFlippers v3.3

    shivaFlippers is a replacement and a serious upgrade over the flippers used in all FP tables before it. shivaFlippers has more realistic shots, better control, and the unique variable coil system that simulates real flipper solnoids so you can vary the speed and strength of your shots. A good example of shivaFlippers and how it plays can be found in Jungle Girl fpx, which uses the 3.2 version, but will be upgraded to the new 3.3 version soon.

    This now uses a variable coil system throughout the flipper arch when you press the flipper button (just like a real table). It is designed to emulate a actual flipper coil in operation, in which the amount of power gradually increases the strength (omega to you devs) of the flipper. This new code will start the variable coil at it's beginning coil when a flipper button is pressed no matter what degree the arch of the flipper is at, at the lowest point, at the highest point, and any angle in between. This means that in theory (remember, FP has it's limitations and bugs) you should be able to do all the things and special tricks that the pros do that require a variable strength. This means flick and tap passes, and I have seen Loop passes as well. (accidental, not based on personal skill)

    This new version is a follow up to the previous version, based on previous comments and play from youtube videos, as well as new code additions and changes. My thanks to those that tested out the previous version, your comments (and videos so I can see different playing styles and find ways to improve shivaFlippers) were very helpful and I suspect you will find this version a lot better and more realistic when compared to the actual real world flippers. This uses and is adjusted to the "new template" in FP.

    There is a video of the last 3.2 version here:

    despite my poor playing, you can see how the flippers work. This new version though has been improved quite a bit.

    The next release of Jungle Girl and the future major update to fpxEngine will use this new code. There are some pretty major changes with 3.3, but if you look in the script, previous version changes are noted as they give a good idea on what shivaFlippers can do over stock or DF flippers.

    The latest shivaFlippers has a major new update that now supports dynamic Omega by flipper swing, (variable coil) and has a couple set tricks programmed in. (This depends on your hardware and reflexes)

    - Variable coil strength, which varies the strength of the flipper depending on the flipper angle
    * The amount of steps (or angles) are adjustable. Default set to 35. A lower number means stronger shots, a higher number means weaker shots
    * Changing FlipperSwingAngleEnd can make flipper tap passes easier (Higher Number) or harder (Lower Number)
    - Tip/tap pass for flipper start angle and max angle
    - The flipper strength gets stronger the longer you hold the flipper button. This means that tip to tip passing is possible, but so are "loft" shots. This adds a huge degree of skill not possible before.
    - Realistic EOS
    - Flippers have better bounce
    - New 2 wall method, with 3 triggers instead of timers
    - Adjustable realistic aiming of how the ball angle comes off the flipper.

    Version 3.3 (release notes)
    - Variable coil is now FULLY enabled no matter what angle the flipper is at. Drop catches, tap passes, flipper flicks, no matter where the flipper is, oh my
    ' - Triggers reworked. A opto trigger is now used as opposed to a large trigger
    ' - Large sections of this code was rewritten
    ' - Fixed walls interfering if flippers all the way up. Walls reshaped and new coding in place. Ball can no hit as wall underneath the flipper if the flipper is raised
    ' - Flippers quite a bit more "snappy" compared to 3.1 version. Better range with the variable coil
    ' - Any flipper slowdown greatly reduced, closer to "never" now
    ' - you can adjust at a certain speed of the ball for when the walls become active, below that speed the walls are inactive
    ' - Separate by contact point omega's redone.
    ' - Coding simplified. Pre-Hits have been rewritten to increase performance and dependability

  3. PinEvent Guide (for TerryRed's releases on Future Pinball)

    PinEvent Guide (for TerryRed's releases on Future Pinball)

    I created PinEvent V2 so I could have a complete feature set and quality standard for my own table releases on Future Pinball.


    PinEvent V2 features:
     
    DOF (direct output framework) for cabinet feedback and lighting Night mode (turn off DOF noise makers at night) Pinup Player / PuP-Packs PUP DMD for a dazzling modern display for scores, text and videos PUP SSF (surround sound feedback) and 3D positional ball rolling PUP Stream which can stream the PUP DMD display into FP directly no need for additional apps to control DOF or PuP TILT BOB support for analogue nudge optional PinEvent V2 global settings optional custom PinEvent V2 settings per table works in ALL modes (Desktop, Cabinet, VR)


    What is PinEvent V2 used with?

    All of TerryRed's PinEvent V2 releases for Future Pinball


    PinEvent V2 features are all optional:
     
    PinEvent V2 tables work in all setups (Desktop, Cabinet, VR) they don’t require additional files to be able to run you need DOF and Pinup Player installed if you wish to use those features  

    Why was PinEvent V2 created?
     
    Future Pinball restricted the usage of external applications with tables. This made it difficult to add DOF and PUP support to Future Pinball tables PinEvent V2 uses the new COM Extensions plug-in for BAM (made by Nailbuster and ravarcade) that allows Future Pinball to "directly" access DOF and Pinup Player and be able to use ALL their features! as a result I was able to make a new script / command standard for myself to add DOF / PUP / SSF features to any Future Pinball table  
     
    What does PinEvent V2 do?

    PinEvent V2 will manage and control DOF, PUP SSF, PUP DMD, PUP Stream, TILT BOB, and Night Mode features automatically.


    How PinEvent V2 Works
     
    on startup, the table will check for PinEvent_V2_Settings.txt in the Scripts folder if it’s found, then it will use the user’s settings in that file to enable PinEvent V2 features if it’s not found, then it will use PinEvent V2 Custom Table settings in the table script if DOF or PuP are not installed, then the DOF and PuP features are disabled and their commands are bypassed (the table will operate like a normal Future Pinball table) if PUP DMD is enabled, it will verify if the correct PuP-Pack is installed if the PuP-Pack is not installed or is an incorrect version, all PUP features are disabled if PuP is detected and enabled, the PuP-Pack is started if DOF is detected and enabled, a DOF session is started the table starts shortly after the table starts (3-6 secs), any PUP Stream options enabled will appear on the table the table will now play and be able to trigger and control DOF, PUP SSF, PUP DMD (if enabled)  
     
    PinEvent V2 Custom Table Settings
     
    this option can be used to override settings in the PinEvent_V2_Settings.txt file this can be handy if you have a desire to have different settings for a specific table these settings are what will be used if PinEvent_V2_Settings.txt file can’t be found  
     
    Pinup Player PuP-Packs
     
    each PinEvent V2 PuP-Pack has multiple “Options” to choose from for every type of setup

    Thanks to:

    - ravarcade for the many updates to BAM that allowed this to be possible
    - ravarcade and DJRobX for the PuP Plug-in that allows PUP Stream to work
    - Nailbuster for Pinup Player, the PUPDMD Framework, and help with vbs code examples

    DISCLAIMER

    Please DO NOT use the name PinEvent in your table mods or code
     
    “PinEvent” refers to my own table releases only “PinEvent” has specific features and updates that represent my own work please do not use the name “PinEvent” when referring to PUP or DOF mods of a FP table I don’t want any confusion I will not give support to any mods of PinEvent tables or code I will only give support and add updates to my own PinEvent releases
    PinEvent V2 tables and mods

    You are free to mod PinEvent tables, but please consider the following:
     
    some PinEvent tables may be an update to a table from someone else who may not want their creations converted to or used on another program such as Visual Pinball. This can be confirmed at the top of the table script if modding, please wait a long while after I release a table, and ask me first as I am always adding updates and fixes I may make changes to both the DOF config and the pup-pack in the future which will no longer be compatible with older table versions PinEvent tables have complex control code for PUP and DOF table mods may be used by some people in a cabinet with expensive feedback and lighting hardware. If you can’t test all of these features, then you could be allowing the table to cause unknown damage to the cabinet or hardware! I will not recognise any mods as “PinEvent” tables, and will not give support for them. I will direct ALL support to you I worked VERY hard to create a standard of “quality” and “support” for my releases. Please respect that.
    Please DO NOT modify my DOF configs for PinEvent tables on DOF Config Tool
     
    I have VERY specific DOF configs that are designed to work with PinEvent updates only! you can make your own DOF changes on your own Private config DO NOT submit changes from your private DOF config for Public consideration! (if there is a problem on one of my tables, please message me) I specifically added separate “PinEvent only” configs so that everyone is free to use the normal FP configs to mod other FP tables for DOF
    You CAN add FizX, PuP and DOF to your own tables or mods (you don’t need PinEvent code)
     
    here is an All In One Example table and Tutorial that includes everything you need to add FizX physics, FLEEP sounds, DOF, PUP SSF and Ball Rolling sounds to your own FP tables easily!
