This is a physics/audio refresh of my 2019 build of Stern's Stingray. Hats of to @apophis for the physics and sound scripting, @nestorgian for the drop target physics update, @TastyWasps for the VR room and @leojreimroc for the VR backglass. Also @PinStratsDan, @bietekwiet and others at VPW for testing and feedback.

 

Before reporting extra ball errors, make sure you are using the included nvram or have set dip switches (F6) to your desired settings.

Another great re-creation! Physics are in the upper echelon. There can never be enough late-70s and 80s games and game-updates, as that era's basically the pinnacle of competition worthy pinball. 


Bell pitches and patterns are unique, and it's very feature-packed for its era. The kicker at the top of the playfield uses a "wheel value," which can break the hearts of your opponents (or you). This game is well balanced and a must-download for hardcore pinballers.

Finally got around to playing this thanks to Smaug's competition this week. Possibly the best looking VPX table ever made. And of course it plays with the solid realism we've come to expect from Bord & Co. Take a bow! 🍻

Never disappointed with a Bord release, and this is another outstanding effort.  Aside from the physics and images being fantastic, I really love the lighting on your recent updates over the past year. Incredible and thanks for sharing them with us.

Never seen the real machine  - but just WOW.. The attention to details is amazing with this table recreation. 

While playing this, I realized how much I often just like to play the old tables.. you know, I am thinking I need to have a new menu on PUPopper for "Bord Tables". 

Thank you @bord  for sharing. This table is magnificent.

I am enjoying all your tables and this one again is simply suberb! The feel of the table is so statisfying, it remembers me of the days when I put a bunch of coins on the apron and kept playing until they were gone, often adding lots of more coins because I couldn't stop playing.

The table looks very cool, and the physics are spot on. Thanks a lot for delivering again such a fine work of art !

Amazing table! Watched a pinball tourney where they played this recently and wanted to try it myself. It plays nearly identical to the table in the tourney. Really fun, don't miss this one!

I"m sitting here just laughing my ass off at how amazing this table looks. You've created what looks to me like the best lit vpx table I've seen so far. I make mame vertical overlays and strive for this kind of a look on all my work, especially the marquees. You've just nailed it all in one table. Wow. And It plays beautifully too. Bravo sir.

 

I haven't dived in to this at all, just a few games. But at the beginning when the table starts and the chimes sound off... they are totally off, as in they don't sound similar to the real tables chimes. Go to 20:20 to hear the proper chime tones. Three of the chimes on this table are ok, little off in tone , but one of the chimes is way off. It sounds like a typewriter bell. It's completely different. All four chimes should sound like the same chime, but a different note. Check out any video on youtube of the real table and you'll hear that they all have that four chime horse racetrack tune at the beginning.

 

Response from the author:

@GordonJames, I agree with you. I have real chimes for dof so I don't hear the digital ones. We need a new, properly tuned recording of a four bar chime setup. I can think of a number of games that would benefit.

As always fantastic! Your work is outrageously good! Both this table and Galaxy came out while I was in Greece, and all I could do was watch them on my phone. Finally catching back up, and getting to play them! Awesome!

This is a really nice honest 70's table while makes me smile when I play because it's just really, really nice. 

As ever thanks for the time and effort for creating this, much appreciated.
