Hurry hurry, step right up!


At the end of 2023 I got a request from ClarkKent.
He made the effort to update Sliderpoint's version of Cyclone with a brand new PF scan and reposition everything needed to make it fit.
Clark also added new plastics with highres scans.
He asked me to give it the nFozzy-Roth-Fleep package so that is exactly what I gave it.
For the very first time I have implemented the improved Fleep 2.0 sound package wich I took from Bad Cats.
It is a mix of old and new sounds on purpose, because many of the old sounds were actually recorded on Clark's old Cyclone machine years ago.
I also made a request to our latest soldier DarthVito to help me get this baby into VR.
We took assets from Senseless' VR version wich is no longer available for download but I still have the files saved on my external hard drive and cloud storage.
So what started as a simple mod turned out to be my first major overhaul.
Within a short time we got ourselves an absolute A-Team assembled from members of the VPW team to get this baby in the shape she is today!


VR-Hybrid version by ClarkKent, RobbyKingPin, DarthVito, Flupper, TastyWasps, HauntFreaks, DGrimmReaper, Apophis & Chokeee.
Represented in chronological order of people who entered on this project.


This table requires VP 10.8 RC1 and VPinMame 3.6-822 or higher when available to ensure the best gameplay experience and supports both 32 and 64 bit.
I would only recommend using released versions and try to stay away from the actions page because it seems like for every fix they got they also can break something else.
Only if you are having performance issues I'd carefully try one of those versions I don't recommend.
That's on your own risk to do so.

I have heared some people were still having issues and some even started making changes into the script to make it work.
I cannot recommend doing this because I have added a menu inside the table with plenty of options.
Hold the left magnet then press the right magnet.
Browse through with the flippers and look for the option that says Mod.Flashers(Restart).
Change the setting that says PWM to Off.
Press the left magnet key twice to close the menu, and then close the table and restart it.


This mod contains the following improvements:

-New Playfield, plastics, cabinet and backglass textures made from proper scans.
-nFozzy/Rothbauerw physics and Fleep 2.0 sound with Rothbauerw standup and drop targets.
-Flupper Domes, Bumpers, Inserts and Flasherlamps.
-nFozzy Lampz to control the inserts.
-PWM GI, flashers and inserts plus the option for non modulated lights and a failsafe if you don't use VPinMame 3.6, altough you really should because PWM is looking really good.
-Sidewall flasher reflections.
-VPW Dynamic Ball Shadows.
-VPW Options UI.
-2 VR Rooms.
-Support for DT, FS, FSS and VR.
-Compatible with the Standalone player.
-New and edited primitives for all the ramps, plastics, scoops, droptarget, biff bars, flasherlamp #89's, ferriswheel and the entire cabinet to look like a System 11 table.
-Refraction on the clear ramps.
-Flupper's flipperbats from Whirlwind and White Water have been added and edited.
-A hack has been added for having the mysterywheel and jackpot meter apear on the backdrop.
This has not been added inside the menu because it breaks VR and b2s files, set MysteryWheelDT to 1 on line 135 and change backdrop to BackdropDT2. (Only use this on DT without a b2s file!)

Some assets and codes that have been used came from other creators:
-melon: Original VP9 version of this table.
-Sliderpoint: Original VPX version of this table.
-JPSalas: Mechcode for DT mysterywheel and GI lights.
-Senseless: VR Gameroom assets.
-MikeDASpike: VR Backglass codes and assets.
-Cliffy: Siderail images and backdrop for DT.

Shoutout to Apophis for saving my b*tt big time once again, Smaug, Cliffy & Rothbauerw.

And basically everybody from VPW I didn't mention just for having me as part of the family, you all absolutely rock!

First I need to state my bias up front because I own the real game and it's a favorite of mine. That said, this is, in my opinion, the absolute pinnacle of a virtual Cyclone pinball machine. I nitpicked and nitpicked some more while RKP constantly improved the table. I'm sure I annoyed the hell out of him during its construction :)  
With the assistance of VPW A-team you have achieved a remarkable result, sir. The lighting, the amazing flasher show, dead on physics and ball handling, the depth of realism in the ramps and plastics, every detail just amazingly well done, even the lamp bulbs themselves!

You should all be proud of yourselves for bringing this classic one baller to the highest possible level. My thanks to all of you and especially @RobbyKingPin

Knocked out of the park! Played various iterations of this table on multiple platforms, and never really enjoyed it, but this is absolutely fantastic and a joy to play. It looks beautiful, sounds like pinball angels singing, the lighting is top notch, and plays great. It is so cool to see the bar get pushed higher and higher, and when you think “how can it get better than this?, someone comes along and  finds a way!

Response from the author:

I have heared one other person having trouble with this, but this seems like some thing I cannot test as a desktop player. Can you go to the support topic on the forum to try to get some help for this issue?

Rarely If ever do i start up a new table and not have to alter something so i can see the ball. I'll have to darken the play field or increase the brightness of the ball etc. This was perfect right out the gate. Beautiful.


The lighting is surprisingly realistic especially the flashers. Bravo since this is such a monochromatic looking table.


The sound is also standing out as particularly well done.


Physics are spot on and the table is so fun as a result.


This is literally the best version of this table I've played.


Great job. Thank you!!!
