A version of Elektra VPX was originally done by 32assassin and artwork by Fancisco666. However in this release, images of the playfields and plastics were obtained off the web, and upscaled and cleaned up by redbone. Since the hole placements were different, there was lots of effort to move, resize, and edit most of all the elements.
This is a really fun table to play... as it was the first pinball machine that had three different levels to it.
Included in this Version 2.0 is Hybrid VR/desktop/cabinet modes, new upscaled playfields, VPW physics, flipper tricks, dynamic shadows, Fleep sounds, Lampz, 3D inserts, new baked general illumination lighting, sling corrections, drop and stand-up targets, saucers, playfield meshes, 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 redbone for the graphics help, and Tomate for working the 4 ramps into blender with collision and textures. He also baked them in as well. And thank you to iaakki for baking in all the GI lighting and shadows. It looks so relistic!! And I would additional like to thank the VPW team for testing and feedback, especially Apophis, PinStratsDan, Sixtoe, BountyBob, TastyWasps, leojreimroc, and Bord.
There are several options in the script. Including VR, ball brightness, and LUT lighting options. The LUT changes are done by holding cntl (or left mangasave) and then while holding, scroll through the options with the right magnasave. The Dip Switch settings are done in the script and are hardcoded. IF... you want to change them, there's a setting in the script to manually override that, and then use F6 during gameplay to bring up the Dip Switch setting.
This is a hybrid table done in VPX 10.74, and I have code in here to automatically choose between VR, desktop, and cabinet. Additional VR 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 Redbone, Tomate, iaakki, and the VPW team!
There are two great b2s's out there... one by Wildman (https://vpuniverse.com/files/file/4963-elektra-bally-1981/), and one by Hauntfreaks if you would like the full dmd version (https://vpuniverse.com/files/file/12470-elektra-bally-1981-prototype-b2s-with-full-dmd/). I used Wildman's image in the VR backglass.
