This is a reskin/mod of Stern's 2002 Playboy table. I actually really like the table layout, but the theme was not the best with the kiddos around. Have no fear--this is based on using VPMAlias, so you can keep your original Playboy table should you wish.

 

Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max Hit the Road, and the Secret of Monkey Island were my favorite point-and-click adventure games growing up. I still have Secret of Monkey Island on my bookcase--with all the 5.25 floppies ready to go. However, Day of the Tentacle was the best of the bunch, with a really clever time travel element to boot.

 

Hopefully this is a good "kid-safe" option for some of you, and a stroll down memory lane for all who played these LucasArts games.

 

Thanks to @Manbearpig for assistance with testing!

Thanks to @HiRez00 for the permission to mod and for all the work that he and others did to make the Playboy table so spot on in the first place.

 

Instructions

  • Add "playboystentacle,playboys" to your vpmalias file
  • Move the pup pack to your pup videos folder. It's designed for a full dmd setup only
  • Move the vpx and b2s files to your tables folder.
  • Turn off sound on the rom by pressing f1**
  • Optional: press 7, navigate to the P.B. install options and select no adult content/sounds (kid-friendly)*
    • --Note: the supplied cfg and nv files *should* cover for this, but if not, follow step 4.

 

*The full DMD videos are timed to "cover" any overtly sexual content, but priority order may cause the occasional miss. Topper and wheel are provided for your use.

 

**For those interested in turning off the sound temporarily (i.e. you plan to use the other playboy table a lot too), follow this script. Thanks @Manbearpig for the tip!!

Nicely done! I believe you asked peoples thoughts on weather they would be interested a while ago and I though "Yes, yes I would" So I am glad it came to fruition

Response from the author:

Thanks! Thought it was worth asking before I put the time into it :)
