Star Wars: Death Star Assault - GALACTIC EDITION

 

Original Ultimate Pro table by SLAMT1LT

 

GALACTIC EDITION by TerryRed

 

Table version: 1.7 (Feb 2024)

 

 

A long time ago (2005) on a pinball editor far, far away... this table started its long journey.

 

First it started as the Sci-Fi Classic example table in 2005. Then SLAMT1LT created his Star Wars mod in 2010, which then evolved over the years to his Ultra version, then his Ultimate version, then finally his Ultimate Pro 1.06 version in 2020. I then updated that table with my Epic Space Battles mod in 2021, and then for PinEvent afterward.

 

In 2022, I present my massive GALACTIC EDITION update!

 

This table has been completely updated and modernized to use the newest BAM features to create an amazing real-time visual treat that will blow you away! Almost everything you saw before has been updated to the max (or replaced) and many cool new additions have been added!

 

Epic Space Battles were just the beginning. This table is so big it requires you to patch FP and BAM to allow them to access 4 GB of ram, just to run it! I highly recommend you watch the "evolution" video below to see many of the new features.

 

 

This table has been fully updated with FizX for game changing new physics on Future Pinball. The old Future Pinball physics are GONE! FizX uses techniques similar to nFozzy on VPX to completely change the physics for the flippers, slings, rubbers, targets, ball behavior and more that allows this table play much more realistically than anyone ever thought was possible on Future Pinball. You will be amazed at the difference!

PinEvent V2

This table is also updated to fully support PinEvent V2 features (DOF, PUP SSF, PUP DMD). It has modern PUP DMD display options that can work with all setups. With it's crisp HD text and dazzling videos, it's sure to wow everyone who sees it.

- space battles that have x-wings / tie fighters / laser blasts / explosions flying all around the game

- epic Death Star explosion effect!

- VR room with spaceship hallway, planets, space, flying ships

- Star Wars arcade game easter egg (behind the player)

- BB-8 animated ball option (thanks Gimli)

- new 128x32 FP DMD

- new attract mode with Darth Vader's DISCO-RAMA with all characters dancing and animated colour changing spotlights... and new remastered Star Wars Disco theme music

- new PinEvent V2 support for DOF, PUP SSF, PUP DMD, PUP Stream, etc

- loads of other fixes, new details and other things I've lost track of...

 

 

This all combined makes for the most explosive and visually stunning Star Wars table you've ever seen! Pure adrenaline!

 

Thanks to SLAMT1LT for making such a great table to add all this to!

This table is a fan-made work of passion, and is NOT intended for commercial usage or to be included in any part of a commercial sale!

 

 

====================================================

 

 

****** This table is a 4 player game ******

 

 

Desktop Static Camera Views
 

In TABLE OPTIONS in the table script, you can change to a different static view (integrated into the table)



While in Attract mode, the following options can be changed:

 

  • Left Flipper: change lightsaber colour
  • Right Flipper: BB-8 ball, chrome ball
  • Plunger button: wire ramp colours (blue / red, chrome / chrome, lightsaber colour / red)
  • Special 1: change backglass art
  • Special 2: toggle lightsabers on / off



When the ball is in the plungerlane, the following will launch the ball:

Plunger button, Left / Special 1 / Special 2


During Gameplay, the following will fire the Turbo Laser Cannon (just for fun)

Plunger button, Left / Special 1 / Special 2


Second Stage Flippers

 

  • this table supports second stage flippers for cabinet players with this setup
  • this needs to be enabled in TABLE OPTIONS in the table script
  • ensure that your Second Flippers are setup in FP Control Settings
  • ensure that your Special 1 and Special 2 keys / buttons are NOT the same keys / buttons as Second Flippers! (they are by default)

 

 

====================================================================

 

 

BAM Ray Cast Ball Shadows:

 

  • this table was created to look best with the new BAM Ray Cast Ball shadows
  • this feature is ENABLED on the table script by default
  • this feature requires a fast video card, and will use much more of your GPU
  • if the table doesn’t run smooth, then your PC may not be fast enough to handle this feature (and you should disable it)

 

To disable this feature, you MUST “first” disable it in TABLE OPTIONS (in the table script)

 


BAM Menu - Light and Post Processing settings:

 

  • BAM Lighting and Post Processing settings are set by the table script and will ALWAYS override the user's settings
  • this is required to ensure that all lighting is set correctly at all times
  • on this table, you can make changes to the Ambient and Diffusion Lighting in the table script in TABLE OPTIONS


 

Physics: FizX v3.3


===================================================================


Game not running smooth? Try the following:

 

  • run FP in Fullscreen, not Windowed
  • disable RayCast Ball Shadows in TABLE OPTIONS (in table script)
  • disable Reflections options in FP's Video / Rendering settings
  • reduce / disable Antialiasing in FP's Video / Rendering settings
  • disable any SSAO options in BAM plugins menu (disabled by default)

 


====================================================================


TABLE REQUIREMENTS (very important!)

 

  • all Visual C Runtime updates
  • DirectX
  • Future Pinball
  • the latest BAM update
  • FuturePinball.exe and FPLoader.exe patched for 4 GB access
  • BAM Settings files installed
  • FizX 1K ball model (for more accurate physics, default.zip in BAM folder)
  • the REQUIRED “Video / Rendering Options” and “Editor Options” in Future Pinball video settings


 

All of the above is included with the latest FP and BAM Essentials AIO package!

Super easy to use for a new install, or just to update your existing install. I recommend everyone install this package to ensure you have the latest required BAM updates.

IMG_20220725_194258.thumb.jpg.ba11830713ce5d2d57efc9264cea7d58.jpgWow, visual candy!

I feel an elitist for having been able to get it all installed properly 😊.

But what a treat, the table is amazing.

Thank you for all the hard work, very much appreciated!

Fast and furious with a touch of 70's breakdancing.  Masterpiece!

 

If you don't have Future Pinball on your system then now is the time to take the leap and follow Terry's straight forward guide 👍

All I can say is WOW!  This table is a treat from the moment you press play.  The audio and visual are superb and smooth.  The gameplay is chaotic, as it should be for an epic Star Wars space battle.  I played this most of the day on release and I really worked up a sweat.  @terryred did an OUTSTANDING job on this.  Thank you a million times!

I built/themed my DIY vpin around this table and this is an incredible update. 

 

Everything sort of just comes together on this one, a perfect upgrade of sound effects, call outs, graphics, and physics.  Super easy to install to boot. 

 

The previous versions were super fun, but always felt like a video game.  This version feels like a real table (even with the laser blasts and character animations). 

 

It feels like a fully mature version of the table; every change seems to be for the better - and that's saying something b/c obviously it was already a pretty well developed pin.  Like the best VPX tables, you just forget you're playing a virtual game and just concentrate on playing pinball. 

 

Far as those physics upgrades go, it's a significant upgrade.  VPX had begun to outpace VP in that regard and this upgrade makes it very very close.  How to describe the difference?  Maybe by saying the physics aren't better then the VPX, just different (easier to catch/hold a ball perhaps?).  No matter how you quantify it, it feels so much more like real pinball.  The biggest real world improvements to my eye are how the ball interacts with the flippers; how the ball responds to quick action with the flippers and lower play fields. 

 

A huge leap in performance/realism. 

 

An already great pin with lots of small upgrades/changes for the better, and a massive improvement in physics.  Thank you Terry and all the rest of the people who made this incredible table possible.

TerryRed you are a FP god!

 

I can't believe this isn't a paid commercial table! You could be rich being a pinball dev for some major game company!

I spent a little more than an hour trying to destroy the death star in 5 min. My best run got me the Skywalker upgrade before timing out. My game play was so jarred by the introduction of FizX. While good; it was just too different from the pre-fizx version. I felt like I had some very sludgy shots in version 1.2. This version (1.4) felt smooth and had fantastic accuracy. Ball spin can be crazy but very manageable. I appreciate playing the standard Death Star assault. Score high, have fun, and play well. But if you aren't trying to destroy the Death Star against the clock in Time Attack you are missing the best part of this game imho.

Hello TerryRed, thank you very much for sharing this Star Wars themed table, it really plays very well and is fun, I am new to Future pinball. I wanted to ask if there is an option to change the Ball of this Pinball for a classic one. Thank you for your valuable contributions in the world of Virtual Pinball, greetings from Argentina.

Absolutely staggering visual overload - I love it! I never would have imagined FP was capable of such graphically intense tables 🤯 The lights, sounds, real time shadows - blows away everything Zen has ever done with the license! Truly fantastic work.

This is the most amazing FP table, and one of the most amazing virtual pinball tables of all!

The lighting, layout, the gameplay, the theme, the GFX, music , sounds,  playfield animations, full dmd, everything is fantastic.

These were always some of the best games out there, and now with the new physics system they are that much better.  Thank you for all the continued improvements!!!  Wish we might get to see other Slamt1lt related tables get an update in the future!

 

One thing - there seems to be a new drop of these tables every few weeks, has anybody made an algorithm to automatically patch them?  Half kidding...
