Junkyard Cats - BAM Edition

 

Original Table by Brendan Bailey, 2012

 

BAM Edition, PinEvent V2, FizX mod by TerryRed

 

Version 1.7, Jan, 2023

 

Thank you so much Brendan Bailey for supporting this update!

 

 

====================================================================

 

 

Brendan Bailey is one of FP's classic "original" table authors. EVERYTHING on this table was made by him! The layout, art, music, sounds, code. Such an amazing work of passion deserves to be updated to be enjoyed by a new generation of virtual pinball lovers!

I wanted to update to a classic FP "original" table to bring it up to my own modern day BAM standards, add my PinEvent V2 features, and completely update the table with FizX physics. The result is an excellent table that plays great with modern dynamic lighting, shadowmaps, ray cast shadows, and full cabinet support.


====================================================================


FizX

This table has been fully updated with FizX for game changing new physics on Future Pinball. The old Future Pinball physics are GONE! FizX uses techniques similar to nFozzy on VPX to completely change the physics for the flippers, slings, rubbers, targets, ball behavior and more that allows this table play much more realistically than anyone ever thought was possible on Future Pinball. You will be amazed at the difference!

====================================================================

 

 

PinEvent V2

This table is also updated to fully support PinEvent V2 features (DOF, PUP SSF, PUP DMD). It has modern PUP DMD display options that can work with all setups. With it's crisp HD text and dazzling videos, it's sure to wow everyone who sees it.

*** This table is single player only ***


====================================================================


Desktop Static Camera Views

Press C to cycle through BAM's Desktop Static camera views (if using the included CFG file)

 

 

Second Stage Flippers

 

  • this table supports second stage flippers for cabinet players with this setup
  • this needs to be enabled in TABLE OPTIONS in the table script
  • ensure that your Second Flippers are setup in FP Control Settings
  • ensure that your Special 1 and Special 2 keys / buttons are NOT the same keys / buttons as Second Flippers! (they are by default)



TABLE OPTIONS

image.thumb.png.af624c387562c3b3a39f7f92e0ec0e83.png


BAM Ray Cast Ball Shadows:

 

  • this table was created to look best with the new BAM Ray Cast Ball shadows
  • this feature is enabled by default
  • this feature requires a fast video card, and will use much more of your GPU
  • if enabling it slows down the game... then your PC may not be fast enough to handle it (and you should disable it)

 

You can enable this feature in the BAM menu, or in TABLE OPTIONS in the table script

 

  • open BAM menu while in-game (~ or Q by default), and goto "Addons - Configure Ball and Shadows"
  • Sharpness = 0.850, Dark Level = -1.0

 

To disable this feature, disable it in both the BAM menu and the TABLE OPTIONS



BAM Menu settings:

 

BAM Lighting and Post Processing settings are set by the table script and will ALWAYS override the user's settings

this is needed to ensure that all lighting is set correctly at all times.


Physics:

FizX v2.0


====================================================================


PinEvent V2 features for this table:

 

DOF

PUP SSF

PUP DMD

PUP Stream

Night Mode key

TILT BOB key

 

Note: for PUP Stream there is no Playfield Mini Screen option


====================================================================


TABLE REQUIREMENTS:


All Visual C++ updates (to allow BAM to work properly). An easy All-in-One Installer can be found here (reboot after installing):

https://www.techpowerup.com/download/visual-c-redistributable-runtime-package-all-in-one/


Future Pinball and BAM (1.5-357 or higher) is required to play this table!

https://www.ravarcade.pl/

Don't assume you have the latest BAM. If in doubt, update it!


If you only need to update BAM:

 

  • backup your entire BAM folder (located at Future Pinball \ BAM)
  • download the latest BAM update from ravarcade’s site (link below)
  • confirm the file is NOT blocked by Windows! (right-click file, check Properties)
  • if using the zip file to update, extract and replace all files in the BAM folder
  • if using the installer, you MUST set the installer to your FP install location (it may not have the correct path!)
  • after updating, you MUST install my “BAM settings” files from my FP and BAM Mega Guide (read more below, link to the guide is farther down)
  • if you have your own custom BAM settings, recopy those instead from your BAM backup folder (BAM.cfg, Reality.dat, Default.cfg) to your BAM folder



TerryRed "BAM Settings" (good default pov for cabinets, and more)

 

  • I highly recommend you install my "BAM Settings" files, if you have never done so before!
  • I recommend you reinstall them AFTER updating BAM (the BAM update replaces them!)
  • download my "Future Pinball and BAM Mega Guide" zip file (link is farther down)
  • open the zip file for the setup you have (BAM settings for Cabinet.zip, or BAM settings for Desktop.zip)
  • extract the files (BAM.cfg, Reality.dat, Default.cfg) into the BAM folder (overwrite the current files)

 

 

****** 4 GB patch is REQUIRED for both Future Pinball and BAM! ******

 

  • some tables REQUIRE that FuturePinball.exe and FPLoader.exe (BAM) be patched to allow them to access 4 GB of ram (by default they can only access 2 GB ram)
  • if you have updated BAM, I recommend applying the patch to both files again (to be sure they are both patched)


You can get the app to patch them at this link here:

https://ntcore.com/?page_id=371

I HIGHLY recommend you read my page that explains how to do the patching here (very easy!):

https://vpuniverse.com/forums/topic/7384-4-gb-patch-for-future-pinball-and-bam-a-must-have/

TerryRed's Future Pinball and BAM Mega Guide (has a FAQ with answers to most problems, and other helpful info):

https://vpuniverse.com/tutorials/article/3-future-pinball-and-bam-mega-guide-by-terryred/


Future Pinball Video Settings and Editor Settings:

- you MUST have the correct Video and Editor settings for this table to work correctly!
- I have included a picture of these settings in the table's zip file


Run FPLoader.exe in BAM folder to play this table. DO NOT run directly from the FuturePinball.exe:

- don't trust start menu or desktop icons, as they may point to FuturePimball.exe instead of FPLoader.exe
- some people may need to run FPLoader.exe as Administrator at least one time for BAM to work
- some people have needed to run FPLoader.exe in Windows 8 compatibility mode to prevent crashing


====================================================================


INSTALLATION

TABLE file: “Junkyard Cats - Bam Edition (1.7 - PinEvent V2, FizX).fpt”

  • this goes in your “PUPVideos” folder
  • read the Install Instructions included in the table's zip file for more info

 

1K Physics Ball

 

  • this is used to allow more accurate physics with the table
  • this table was designed for use with this ball model
  • read the FizX section for more information on how to install this file!


You do not need any other extra files or applications just to play this table!

 

  • it should work for everyone (desktop, cabinet, vr) as long your PC hardware can handle it
  • simply install the table files and play it like any other Future Pinball table


PinEvent V2

If you want to use any PinEvent V2 features (DOF, PUP SSF, PUP DMD), read the included install instructions in the table's zip file!


====================================================================


********** HOW TO PLAY THE TABLE **********

 

  • only use FPLoader.exe (this is BAM) in the BAM folder to load and play this table. DO NOT run directly from the FuturePinball.exe
  • don't trust start menu or desktop icons, as they may point to FuturePinball.exe instead of FPLoader.exe
  • set FPLoader.exe to Windows 8 Compatibility if having crashing problems
  • ALWAYS completely close Future Pinball after exiting a table, or loading another table
  • Future Pinball needs to start “fresh” every time you load or start a table!

 


====================================================================


PROBLEMS?

Read the Install Instructions included in the table's zip file.

It tells you everything you need to know, has a very helpful FAQ, and has lots of pretty pictures!

Again, read the FAQ and the Install Instructions in the table's zip file!
