The Machine (Bride of Pinbot) Williams 1991 VPW mod 1.0.4

   (39 reviews)

2 Screenshots

This project was started originally by wrd1972 and iaakki in VPW started to rebuild it to match the correct dimensions.
This is almost a full rebuild as everything had to move and various things were fixed, so that this can support PROC games too (officially there may not be such available as of now).

 

Other VPW members who helped making this: 
 fluffhead, Leojreimroc, Fleep, Sixtoe, ClarkKent, rothbauerw, Nestorgian, Rawd, Cyberpez, Bord, Apophis, Wylte, Niwak, RIK, PinStartsDan
 
Most notable changes by VPW:
 - New table dimensions and new PF scan from ClarkKent
 - Totally new SSF sounds for flips, bumpers and slings edited by Fleep. Recorded from Pinbot by major_drain_pinball
 - Baked lighting for GI and flashers, and all colors can be changed via script options
 - 3D inserts from Flupper and vectorized insert texts
 - New plastics and metal walls primitives
 - Support for Proc games
 - VRRoom with full backglass
 - Updated NF/Roth physics
 - Full change notes at the end of the file

Beautiful recreation of the all time classic. It plays like a dream with stunning 3D and graphics. SSF sound is particularly well balanced as well on this table . Thank you so much for all the hard work.

@VPinWorkshop this is an absolute treasure.  The attention to detail in all aspects of this table construction are simply impeccable, from the stunning lighting and crisp visuals, to the realistic flipper action and ball physics, weight, and friction.

 

Thank you for this newest jewel and also for your opus of artistry.  And thank you for curating and preserving the tables which we hold so dear!

 

Very best,

Dylan

Table plays fantastic and looks great. In VR the LEDs under the playfield have great depth and look real, as do many other things. This was a pleasant surprise, thanks for sharing.

I've had the ball get stuck a few times seemingly to the left of the right ramp.  It runs a little more sluggish with my 1660 Super compared to other versions of this table, but I got it playable. Looks and sounds wonderful.

Beautiful table.  Having a problem with my flippers though.  They are acting sluggish, and get stuck.  How can I fix this?  Thanks.

Amazing table. Love love their work. 
 

@bietekwiet which B2S are you using? I like that vintage look but I’m wondering if it’s the monitor. can you let me know what authors b2s you’re using? Thanks.

This is simply stunning. I used to own this machine but sold it many years ago.  What a great recreation.

 

Well done to all involved.

 

Now we only need a BOP 2.0 Dutch pinball ver. The ruleset on that one is really fun

 

Cheers

Extremely well done; just like all the other  enjoyable tables given to us by VPinWorkshop; thanks!

 

In the category of personal preference, attached find script changes that could be inserted along with an accompanying backglass file (3scr version only)  that illuminates the DMD face currently being displayed on the playfield. 

 

In the spirit of trying to be helpful, screw40, l37a, p37a, p37aa & p008 could have their heights lowered to align things up.  Of course,  you need to be borderline OCD to even notice. 

 

Happy holidays and thanks.

One of my favourite games by my favourite creators. The game plays better than ever, and the lighting is sooo good. The textures are crisp, and the game comes with so many customisations. 

I recommend enabling the Spaceship toy. It looks so good :)
 

I wouldn't say I liked the table incline and adjusted it to my liking, but the game played flawlessly from the get-go.

The Hard flipper rubbers feel so good, and the bounce is perfect.
 

I enabled random Lady faces and have yet to trigger them, so there is much to explore on this table. 
 

A great table made even better :)
