JAWS – BIGGER BOAT EDITION

 

 Original Table created by: ROM

 

Ultimate Pro Update by: SLAMT1LT

 

BIGGER BOAT EDITION by TerryRed

 

Table version: 1.3 (Jan 2023)

 

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

 

 

What began as ROM’s classic Jaws table for Future Pinball, has evolved over the years from SLAMT1LT’s massive Ultimate Pro update, to my new BIGGER BOAT EDITON.

 

This table has been completely updated to use the newest modern BAM features to create an amazing real-time visual treat that will blow you away! Almost everything you see has been updated to the max and many cool additions have been added!

 

See new effects, such as the ramp spilling the blood of any ball eaten by the shark. New animated bumpers fill with bloody water. Gasp as you see victims reach out from the bumpers for help! Witness Ben Gardner’s dead corpse bob up and down. New animated water plastics, boat wheel and orca toys, Hooper’s tanks, buoy flashers, underwater VR room and more!

 

 

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

 

 

FizX

 

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.

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), AND in the BAM menu “afterward” while playing:

 

  • open BAM menu (~ or Q by default), and goto "Addons - Configure Ball and Shadows"

 

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

 

Physics: FizX v2.0

 

 

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

 

 

TABLE REQUIREMENTS (very important!)

 

 

All Visual C++ updates (to allow BAM to work properly)

 

  • an easy All-in-One Installer can be found here (reboot after installing):

 

https://www.techpowerup.com/download/visual-c-redistributable-runtime-package-all-in-one/

 

 

Future Pinball and BAM (1.5-357 or higher) is REQUIRED to play this table!

 

  • for new installs, you can get a 2 in 1 installer at ravarcade’s site (link is below)

 

https://www.ravarcade.pl/

 

 

****** Don't assume you have the latest BAM. If in doubt, update it! ******

 

How to “update” BAM:

 

  • backup your entire BAM folder (located at Future Pinball \ BAM)
  • download the latest BAM update from ravarcade’s site (link below)
  • confirm the file is NOT blocked by Windows! (right-click file, check Properties)
  • if using the zip file to update, extract and replace all files in the BAM folder
  • if using the installer, you MUST set the installer to your FP install location (it may not have the correct path!)
  • after updating, you MUST install my “BAM settings” files from my FP and BAM Mega Guide (read more below, link to the guide is farther down)
  • if you have your own custom BAM settings, recopy those instead from your BAM backup folder (BAM.cfg, Reality.dat, Default.cfg) to your BAM folder
  • https://www.ravarcade.pl/download

 

https://www.ravarcade.pl/download

 

 

TerryRed’s "BAM Settings" (proper default view for cabinets, better static desktop views, etc)

 

  • I highly recommend you install my "BAM Settings" files, if you have never done so before!
  • I recommend you reinstall them AFTER updating BAM (the BAM update replaces them!)
  • download my "Future Pinball and BAM Mega Guide" zip file (link is below)
  • open the zip file for the setup you have (BAM settings for Cabinet.zip, or BAM settings for Desktop.zip)
  • extract the files (BAM.cfg, Reality.dat, Default.cfg) into the BAM folder (overwrite the current files)

 

 

****** 4 GB patch is REQUIRED for both Future Pinball and BAM! ******

 

  • this table REQUIRES that FuturePinball.exe and FPLoader.exe (BAM) be patched to allow them to access 4 GB of ram (by default they can only access 2 GB ram)

 

You can get the app to patch them at this link here:

 

https://ntcore.com/?page_id=371

 

I HIGHLY recommend you read my page that explains how to do the patching here (very easy!):

 

https://vpuniverse.com/forums/topic/7384-4-gb-patch-for-future-pinball-and-bam-a-must-have/

 

 

 

Future Pinball Video Settings and Editor Settings:

 

- you MUST have the correct Video and Editor settings for this table to work correctly!

- I have included a picture of these settings in the table's zip file

 

 

Run FPLoader.exe in BAM folder to play this table. DO NOT run directly from the FuturePinball.exe:

 

- don't trust start menu or desktop icons, as they may point to FuturePimball.exe instead of FPLoader.exe

- some people may need to run FPLoader.exe as Administrator at least one time for BAM to work

- some people have needed to run FPLoader.exe in Windows 8 compatibility mode to prevent crashing

  • read the FizX section for more information on how to install this file!

 

 

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

 

 

********** HOW TO PLAY THE TABLE **********

 

  • only use FPLoader.exe (this is BAM) in the BAM folder to load and play this table. DO NOT run directly from the FuturePinball.exe
  • don't trust start menu or desktop icons, as they may point to FuturePinball.exe instead of FPLoader.exe
  • set FPLoader.exe to Windows 8 Compatibility if having crashing problems
  • ALWAYS completely close Future Pinball after exiting a table, or loading another table
  • Future Pinball needs to start “fresh” every time you load or start a table!

 

 

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

 

 

PROBLEMS?

 

Read the Install Instructions included in the table's zip file.

 

It tells you everything you need to know, has a very helpful FAQ, and has lots of pretty pictures!

I have never had a good enough computer to run future pinball smoothly so it's been years since I've played it. I finally upgraded and this is amazing! Fizx feels really nice too. You are really talented at this. The atmosphere is incredible! Can't wait to try out your other tables! Many thanks! I can only imagine how many hours go into making something like this.

Cette table est une dinguerie ! D'ailleurs en ce moment je joue beaucoup plus sur tes tables Terry que sur vpx lol Je m'amuse beaucoup ! La table est magnifique, le gameplay est trés prenant,les ambiances sont dingues, le DOF est parfait, ça réagit très bien, les effets de lumiere sont vraiment parfait, les animations sont cool, gros bigup à toi Terry ! Merci beaucoup pour ton travail et pour tes projets futurs ! (Silenthill va être absolument incroyable 😛 )

This table inspired me to finally take the PinEvent plunge.  I always thought Terry's tables were super fun but was hesitant to mess with my cab when everything is working perfectly.

Now with the new FizX and this beautiful table I thought I'd take the chance. It was way easier than expected to get PinEvent V2 running and I'm so glad I did.  Thank you Terry for these

wonderful tables.

I will start by saying my wife does not play pinball, and refuses to join me in my fun. However, this table is the exception for her, and she really enjoys flipping Jaws. Along comes @TerryRed and brings not only the awesome new FizX physics, PinEvent2, and some incredible new toys, but improvements across the board that are just going to blow your mind. This is not your father's Future Pinball table, and after you download and play this, I guarantee you will have an incredibly fun time playing this very fun and engaging  table.

Installation: There are a few updates to do here, but nothing overwhelming. If you have updated elements for other recently updated Terry updates, you are already half way there! Folks often seem weary of the huge instructions book that comes with Terry's games, but I assure you this is not only welcomed, but if you actually take a moment to read the thing it lays out instructions perfectly, avoiding most issues out of the box and covering almost all use cases possible. Kudos to Terry for such comprehensive guides, this is sincerely appreciated.

Play: The customization options with FizX finally bring Future Pinball into the modern age, and allow you do experience better general flow and ball control due to improved physics. You can increase things like flipper strength now, among other things. I can do some flipper tricks that were never before possible, and it is light years ahead of the old system. Jaws: Bigger Boat Edition is one of the most fun tables to play in my house. The kids and wife love it, and the modes vary enough that it offers a new game every time for them. 3 multi ball modes, awesome hidden modes, hurry-ups, and more will be yours if you master this ocean. This is truly an arcade type of feel, with the focus on the fun and modes rather than tournament scoring, and I really like that.

Graphics: Terry has added some incredible textures and eye candy to this table. You also now have an 8K ball option, and advanced video options if your system can handle it. This table can really push your system if you let it, but Terry has also considered users with PCs that are not quite top end by leaving off the advanced eye candy by default.

Conclusion: Download this now, and if you need help we are all here to assist. YOU WILL LOVE THIS TABLE! There are bonus modes, harpoon shots, smooth and tight ramp shots, and a very satisfying take. You may just be afraid to go back in the water, but once you dip your toes in, I think you will agree........ Terry is gonna need a bigger GLOAT!

Stunning table as per usual from Terry.
Sounds and looks amazing.

Please take the time to read the install instructions before asking Terry for any help.  His documentation is second to none.
Dont assume you have the latest version of BAM and FP installed.
