A version of Barracora VPX was originally done by Dids and GtxJoe, however in this release, nearly everything was done or redone from scratch.  The original table size was incorrect, which required me to completely redo everything like I did on Jungle Lord.  The more I worked on this... the more I just redid everything... primitives, sounds, images, etc.  

 

Love this table... as its another great early 80's Williams table like Black Knight, Solar Fire, Jungle Lord, Pharaoh, etc.  This has a very complicated ruleset, but excellent game play, as well as challenging lock shots and hungry outlanes!  Table instructions are included in the Table info section, and there's a great tutorial by PAPA online.  

 

Included in this Version 2.0 is Hybrid VR/desktop/cabinet modes, new upscaled playfield, VPW physics, flipper tricks, dynamic shadows, Fleep sounds, Lampz, 3D inserts, new general illumination lighting, sling corrections, drop and stand-up targets, saucers, playfield mesh, various primitives, etc.  Significant time was spent on researching online videos, to ensure accuracy of shots, ball drops, kickouts, and overall playability.  I also created a desktop backglass with a cool lighting effect, as well as the VR backglass and other VR options. There are also some performance improvements, and I added a playfield mesh for the playfield, so there's a realistic bevel in the saucers. 

 

I would like to thank the VPW team for testing and feedback (especially Apophis, Tomate, Smaug, FriscoPinball, Bountybob, Lumi, Bietekwiet, Armyaviation, Wylte and all others who tested!) And... an additional thank you to Tomate for providing the lower rail primitive.

 

There are several options in the script.  Including VR, ball brightness, LUT lighting options, and you can turn the bell off if you don't like that sound.  
The LUT changes are done by holding cntl (or left mangasave) and then while holding, scroll through the options with the right magnasave.

This is a hybrid table done in VPX 10.72, and I have code in here to automatically choose between VR, desktop, and cabinet.   Additional options in the script include two VR environments, a VR clock, a topper, posters, and settings for dynamic shadows if you experience a performance hit

Thanks again to the VPW team for feedback!

Wow, the plastics and playfield redraw are stunning! I could immediately notice a huge difference in quality, clarity, colors. The screenshots really show a difference from the last ones. Going to be playing this table for a long time!

 

Thanks uncle Paulie and redbone for your amazing work! 👍

Good flow and nice challenge, slightly set back by graphics with a somewhat VP9 look.  Still very enjoyable.

Another incredible table by UnclePaulie, many thanks (again). Rules are not easy (by chance it's existing a YT tutorial by PAPApinball).

what a table!
I'm rubbish at it but I cannot stop playing! I come back to this table frequently. 
The updated images give the table that extra fidelity it's just perfect!
Plays so very well, with a challenging but rewarding flow. Another top-quality release, thanks Uncle Paulie, and to all involved.

Barracora would have kept me busy in the arcades!  The one-more-game quality is strong in this one and UnclePaulie captured it beautifully.  I love the strategic options that you have, but it takes a lot of work to set it up properly.  I'm beginning to get it now, but it will still take a lot of games before I do it well... likely only when it comes up in a competition 😉 .

Another classic that needed the overhaul badly! There were some odd physics things happening in the older versions that I'm sure have been fixed here. Can't wait to check it out! EDIT: And now with the 2.1.1 graphics update.... even more amazing!

I liked the table in previous versions, but @UnclePaulie has taken it to a new level.
It plays wonderfully and looks great. A true beauty once again.
First class table from the 80s.
