A bit of a legacy upload, this great game was adopted as a physics improvement project by the great rothbauerw in late 2020. Here we are a few years later and, although lacking some bells and whistles visually, this holds up well and plays great.


Includes VR setup, nFozzy physics.


Original credits read:

2018 - Script adapted from an unreleased version by Borgdog, Hauntfreaks, Drybonz. Base script by 32assassin. Testing and apron scan by The Loafer.

2020 - major physics and VR overhaul by rothbauerw

*Bigus uploads Centaur 2.0 without authorization, changes physics, lights, playfield, layout, sounds, lighting, scripts, remade from scratch*


*Bord walks in... BAM! oh, yea I forgot I have this even better version just sitting on my computer with Rothbauerw physics updated.*


*Drops the mic... Heheheh 🤫🕴️*


All joking aside, I've been patiently waiting for you to post an update to this since I discovered you had made this on vPinball before but haven't reuploaded it here yet.


Glad to see it come back, and with an update to boot! I can finally try what is surely the best version of Centaur available.


If it's a Bord table, you surely won't be... bored... 😁🙄

Wow, this table plays so incredibly well! The way the ball handles is top notch and this really becomes a player's table very quickly when getting into it. All the intricacies of ball behaviour are there from great flipper control to nudge control ball saves from the outlanes on cabinet. Thank you so much for the hard work on this gem of a table !

It's super nice to have it so beautifully rendered on the pincab !

Quick question.. is this one better than the new one over at VPF with the lights and stuff, and taller bumpers? Because if it doesn't have gigantic effin bumpers I'm not downloading!


Seriously though, you're still king @bord nothing compares to the real deal.

5-star again to @bord nice job, but it's very difficult table (ball goes to drain easily lol). Unfortunately no backglass with score/BIP/credits in Desktop mode (I use FlexDMD to display all scores...). Using VPX 10.8 Beta 8 (x86). Thank you very much! 😉

Bord the legend what can I say, nice work brother! I love the play and feel of this table and the lightning is awesome. I have one of these machines at my local classic arcade but its nice to play this one at the house as well. Destroy Centaur!

Awesome table, one of the best classic tables every made imo, just a question... I've noticed on some of the older tables there is no DMD, in the sense that there appears to be no way of entering a high score name, can this be done in scripts, or is it not possible unless a new DMD is specifically made for a table?

Has very real feel, after spending time with it. Plays smooth. Awesome job as always!

It does hold up very well, it plays and feels much better in both VPX and VR, thanks!!
