The less you see, the more you feel.
Never having heard of it, Wylte played the real machine in the wild and was instantly enamored. It happened to come up a couple months later in a discussion with Lumigado and Dapheni and that very night Wylte added nFozzy’s flipper tricks to Ninuzzu’s excellent recreation. From there it was supposed to be a very lite upgrade, but Skitso made the lighting look so good that Wylte had to learn every VPW trick (short of a full scan and render) to be worthy of it! Luckily he took his sweet time and other members were able to hop in and add even more (and fix his rookie mistakes).
After releasing 1.0, Wylte bought the real machine! And then kept tweaking the VPX for a year...
