A minimal VR room for Data East's Jurassic Park (1993), based on Dark & Friends fantastic VPX version of the table.
I've wanted to do an updated VR version for this for a while as it's one of my favorite tables, mainly because I played it loads back in the day for one reason or another, but I've really got a soft spot for it (unusually for a Data East!). It needed some real love in VR because of how the table is built and I'm hoping I did Darks version justice
Thanks to Dark for the Topper and Gun primitives (and the original table of course!), to Onevox for the art for the VR Room, and to Thalamus for the updated SSF script from his github repository.
A small note, currently the glowball option just doesn't work in VR due to VPVR rendering limitations, so don't turn it on as it won't work and will just potentially slow the table down.

Hold onto your butts!
See script for lots of options!
Everything for this table was redrawn and is presented in HD. If you have performance issues you may want to consider some upgrades :P. In the meantime however you can export the PF and plastics images and just reduce image size in half as well as disable some extra effects in the script options.
The highly anticipated Jurassic Park VPX update is here and oh man what a journey.
It all started what feels like a year ago when bodydump Tom offered to redraw the PF for me. I had started updating my Trex model but it was really Tom's play field that made the project take it's first steps into becoming a full fledged project. So I really can't thank Tom enough for the stellar job he did especially considering the level of detail.
You can see the table's progress in this project:
Spared no expense on this table:
Dark: Just about entire table in 3D + plastics redraws, lots of custom lighting+effects.
Bodydump: Amazing play field redraw, Trex box redraw, graphics help.
Rothbauerw: Innovative scripting solutions, trex ball swallow ball effect (game ball actually get's picked up and swallowed). Implemented 'flupper' style base lighting for me.
Randr: He was basically my slave on this project, I can't thank him enough for his infinite patience with me in seeing my vision come to life. I won't apologise for being a slave driver though. He entertained every crazy idea I had and helped me build many aspects of the table.
Hauntfreaks: A huge help color balancing and remastering a lot of the plastics.
flupper: Super custom JP pop bumper caps, DE flippers and flasher domes.
Shoutout to ICPjuggla for his input.

I really hope you all enjoy this table, a lot went into it.
