'005 - Skitso - reworked all GI and flashers, improved insert lighting, new LUT
'006 - iaakki - debugged some flip physics issues and now live catch and nudge works, flip angles changed, removed some lights, flip physics parameters updated
'007 - Skitso - temporary fix for broken flashers. Replaced SHOOT AGAIN and KICKBACK insert textures to a more visually pleasing ones.
'008 - iaakki - merged flashers. Solflash17 created for "modulated" Amy flasher
'009 - Skitso - fixed flashers, fixed ball shadow depth bias issue, added one missing GI light under left ramp, made upper lane guide lamps to show through AMY's hand, new volcano ramp textures, improved Grey playfield texture and shadows, new dark texture for yellow hit targets on Grey playfield, added tiny bit of DL to Grey when GI is lit, fixed right sligshot plastics material and repositioned light beneath
'010 - Skitso - improved rule card texture, backwall texture and left ramp decal. Added backfacing transparent triangles rendering to ramps, improved bumber lighting.

New Playfield for Jurassik Park (Data East 1993) table
By VPinWorkshopOK, OK, OK!
Lethal Weapon 3 table Tune-Up by VPin Workshop.
It all started by again by just thinking about adding nFozzy’s physics and some missing textures in the original table, then we started replacing some primitives and reworking the existing ones, then the apron, cabinet, metal ramp, bats and a few other things were replaced. Totally new 3d inserts. Then different lamps were added to have a better lighting of all the new baked textures and finally adding a built in VR room...
• New/reworked primitives: tomate
• Baked ON/OFF textures: tomate
• Inserts: Sheltemke, oqqsan
• Scripting: oqqsan
• nFozzys physics: tomate, iaakki
• Fleep sounds: apophis
• Flashes & Lighting Overhaul: tomate, Sixtoe
• VR Room and fixes: Sixtoe, 360 Room by pattyg234.
• Miscellaneous tweaks: Sixtoe, tomate, oqqsan
• Testing: Bord, Rik, oqqsan, VPW team
This release would not have been possible without the legacy of those who came before us, including most notably, Javier for the original vpx table, EBisLit for the new playfield image and 32Assassin for the rework. Thank you.
Thanks to Flupper for his beautiful domes and Bumpers caps, Rothbauerw for nFozzy physics and Fleep for sounds.
By TerryRedNOTE: DO NOT use this table, as it is out of date. Use normal VPX tables and newer PuP-Packs instead. This table is here for refence only.
Tron Legacy (Stern) (PuP Edition)
PinUp Player Edition mod : TerryRed
PinUp Player created by: NailBuster
VPX table created by: ICPJuggla, freneticamnesic (original FP to VPX conversion).
RustyCardores: Surround sound mod, new sounds added (where there were none)
DJRobX: Updated physics and code to bring table inline with VPX 10.4 routines. ROM-controlled GI and PWM flasher support. Prettier Ball.
HauntFreaks: File size optimization
Other credits: Rom and GLXB (original FP table version), SLAMT1LT (Ultimate Edition FP version, and inspiration for this table mod)
To see the world's first PinUp Player VPX table mod, watch this video of it here in my cabinet:
PinUp Player is a program that lets you play any video file on your Backglass, Topper, DMD, or any other screen using VLC media player. These videos can be controlled through the table’s script, switches, triggers, lights, or other table events. This allows any VP, FP or FX2 (using DOFLinx for FP and FX2) table to have a Backglass or Middle Screen with full videos like Jersey Jack Pinball, modern Stern tables, or Heighway Pinball tables.
You can control the videos using direct PuP control through the table’s script, or you can use B2S Server and create a PuPB2S that doesn’t require any modification of the table (but with less control), similar to a normal B2S (but really easy to make).
This PuP table mod is not using the PuPB2S method (which uses B2S Rom calls), and was a complete mod of the table script. I created all the videos myself (1920×1080 for Backglass, and 1920×822 for Topper), inspired by SLAMT1LT’s FP version.
Since this is a rom based table. I have no access or control over any of the game code or actions. I literally made A LOT of new code specifically for PUP that works based on only triggers / switches from the game, and the playfield lights and neon ramp colour logic. It’s a miracle I was able to pull this off, as this works with most MB modes, as well as the jackpots,etc all having unique videos with titles,etc. Because of this, I also wasn’t able to do anything for Sea of Simulation, End of Line MB, or portal, as they all use White for neon ramp colours, and I have no way to differentiate them.
To use this table you will need:
- VLC media Player "32 bit" only installed! (64 bit version won't work): https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
- PinUp Player installed: http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=38979&page=1
- "Tron_Legacy" PuP videos should be installed to your "PUPVideos" folder.
- there must be absolutely no files in the "PUPVideos\trn_174h" folder! (this folder is created when the table is first run, as is the Tron_Legacy folder) That folder is meant for a PuPB2S (based on the table's rom). This table's "PuP mod" doesn't use the PuPB2S function, so if you have any videos in there meant for a PuPB2S, then you will have videos from both folders playing...and you don't want that!
- ensure all files from PinUp Player are "unblocked". You may need to set PinUp Player Compatibility Mode to WinXP if you are running on Win7. You may also need to have PinUp Player "Run as Admin".
VPX MUST be run in windowed fullscreen! PuP will not be visible if VPX is run in exclusive fullscreen. When setting up PuP, size and postition both your PuP Backglass and PuP Topper so they don't cover the table.
No Pinball X Topper or backglass "videos" can be playing when the table is launched and running. While it "may" work, having videos from PBX and PuP playing on the same screen may cause issues. Pinball X still image for your Backglass or Topper screen is fine. PuP will play over still images and B2S backglasses, no problem...in fact its encouraged to use a still image for the Topper background, as this PuP mod doesn't use any "Background images or videos" that are always displayed. You can run your playfield screen in Exclusive Fullscreen, just don't setup any PuP screens to play on that screen, as they won't be visible.
- this table mod is designed to be used with both a Backglass PuP screen, and a Topper PuP screen. You don't require both of those however, in a cabinet for PuP to work.
- you can have both the PuP Backglass and PuP Topper on the same screen if you wish. Just re-size and position them on the same screen so they don't overlap each other. You may also only use one or the other if you wish.
- setup both your Backglass PuP screen and Topper PuP screen to "Pop-up enabled". This will have videos pop-up and play and then close when finished.
- note, that if you have a looping video playing (Topper, multiball modes) when you exit the table, PuP will continue to play this looping video as it hasn't been given a stop or disable loop command.
This table mod is using a PinMAME Rom, and therefor I have no control over what the table is actually doing. All I have done is create new code in the table script that will react to switches, triggers, playfield lights, Timers, and the Neon Ramp colours to play videos as a result of in-game events. While I have thoroughly tested this mod, there may be rare instances where a video may play when it shouldn't, or a video will stop when it shouldn't (mostly just Topper videos). This is usually a result of a ball drain's timing being off a little (with ball saver,multi-ball modes, etc). This is beyond my control, but if it does happen, it won't affect the gameplay at all. Once you have a normal ball drain or certain multiball modes active again, then everything should be good to go again.
This mod was a lot of work, but the results are just too damn cool! I hope you enjoy it!
Configuring PinUp Player's Screen settings for this table only (so you don't need to change PuP's default settings):
Since I don't think SetScreenex is mentioned yet in any of the PuP docs...I'll mention how I used it with Tron (PuP Edition) here. In the table script near the top, you can find these two lines: PuPlayer.SetScreenex 2,0,0,0,0,1 'Set PuPlayer Backglass to Pop-Up On <screen number> , xpos, ypos, width, height, POPUP PuPlayer.SetScreenex 0,0,0,0,0,1 'Set PuPlayer Topper to Pop-Up On <screen number> , xpos, ypos, width, height, POPUP Screen number 2 = Backglass, screen number 0 = Topper. Change the last digit to 0 if you want to disable PopUp for this table ONLY! (though Pop-Up is recommended) Setting the xpos, ypos, width, height, to 0 will also use PinUp Players's default size and position if you don't want a different position and size for only this table. Or you can comment out the entire line with an apostrophe to disable the command entirely (and use PinUp Player's default settings). Also you will see these lines: PuPlayer.Init 0,"Tron_Legacy" PuPlayer.Init 2,"Tron_Legacy" If you don't want to use one of the PuP screens at all, just comment out the line with an apostrophe which screen (Backglass=2, Topper=0) you don't want to use specifically for this table ONLY! This way you don't have to change PuP's default settings. All of the above is only applicable to a PuP table "MOD" that doesn't use a PuPB2S (like Tron Legacy PuP Edition). This is the only way to allow for this table to have its own user definable PuP screens config without changing PuP's default settings.

Transformers (Stern 2011) Detail Mod of JP's table
reworked playfield so the correct right hand pro ramp could be used
FP ramps were used, texture modded by Draifet
left and right ramps detailed and modded to be "close" to the real machine
3D rendered shadows and ambient lights by Bord
new lighting and domes
flipper and ball shadows
normal maps added to all the models for more detail
fast flips enabled
this is one of those tables that's just not 100% to the real machine, so don't expect it to be
again thanks, JP, Draifet, Bord and everyone that found real machine photos
By Schlabber34VPX version by Schreibi34 and Herweh
Version 1.0: Initial release
Schreibi34: Visuals and gameplay "It's simply amazing what you do in Blender. So thrilling, so inspiring, so extraordinary. I'm overwhelmed every time when I see what you have created. You are the man. And a very relaxed, cool guy too. And for sure an awesome drummer ;-). Once again it was a pleasure and an honor to work with you"
(this was written by Herweh)
Herweh: Scripting, VP development and gameplay "Everything you see below in this script! Without him Mr. Basic v2.0 Schreibi34 would have been totally lost! What he has done on this table goes beyond my imagination. From animating Frank to implementing RothbauerW's physics to the texture swaps to all sorts of extras. Please check out all the stuff that the script Voodoo Master has provided for you below! Thanks for being such a cool guy! It was a pleasure!"
(this was written by Schreibi34)
Special thanks to:
- Dark: We all know what he did! Frank is just jawdropping!! - Dids666: For starting all of this and his awesome meshes. Thanks for letting us finish this!! - Sheltemke: For stitching together the PF image and playtesting - Mlager8: For PS help on the sling plastics - RothbauerW: For his awesome physics' guide at vpinball.com and some more help on the physics - Mark70, Bord, Thalamus: For beta testing and some good hints - Batch: For the DT background image (Sorry for making it a bit darker! Batch's original is in the image manager for those who like more pop)
Magna save selects LUT filters!
- Herweh: Fix for the trapped balls and the post left of the Geneva hole. Fix for LUT filters resetting after restart
- Skitso: Alligning the GI-ON and OFF better so they don't "jump" when swaping
- Schreibi34: Minor gameplay/physics adjustments
By psiomicronVPX Table by: fuzzel, flupper1, rothbauerw
Runs in regular table mode and VR, settings are in the script.
V1.2: . Adjustments by tomate new metal plates for the ramps new less faceted prim for the upper right metal wall (I modified the vpx wall too) new metals textures.
For VR: I added animated flipper buttons for VR (its the little things), Backglass now runs B2S files, be sure to disable grills, DMD, and B2S DMD in B2S settings (right click the backglass on the screen) Runs in regular desktop mode and VR Room. Edit script to VRRoom = 1 for VR Minimal Room.
Updated to table: Issue with center lane (drive through lane) and ramps so ball doesn't always drain center and is more like the real table.
Table rebuild by Sixtoe (updated ramps with lighting and asset changes, along with timer adjustments, along with other many miscellaneous items)
Special thanks to fuzzel and rothbauerw for permission to mod.
By Hanibal2001Tx to freneticamnesic for the convert of the FP version to this nice table.
Additionaly tx to using 85vetts script and adapted to work in VPX.
Thanks to rom and Glxb and slamtilt for their FP Version!
I have change this things:
- new real playfield and decals
- new physics
- new lights
- new sounds
- some funny things
- Tron Arcade reacts on Game Over by pinball and has demo screens
- New bumper cover mods
- Bike and ship models have glowing lights
By RascalThis is my release of the 1992 Data East Michael Jordan recreation. Right off I'll tell you that its not perfect and thats because there are very few resources. Also there are lights and things that don't match up with the manual. I redrew the playfield and plastics myself and I think it looks pretty good considering the lack of resources. This is a mod based off the Lethal Weapon 3 table that javier1515 created and bigus1 modded. I made it all work with the Michael Jordan reskin.
32assassin has been working on a WIP and has made a lot of changes. Some of them are in this table, but not all. Sorry, 32assassin, but I got busy with real life and quite frankly I got tired of this table. I know a lot of people have been waiting for the release so here it is. Where I left off and open for anybody to mod. I like the table the way it is, but that's just my opinion.
Its summer here where I live and I have been busy living. I got things I want to do.
So thank you to the following and you all have fun:
bigus1 for LW3 mod I based this table off of.
javier1515 for his LW3 vpx table which I based this mod off of.
oooPLAYER1ooo for his LW3 artwork that I used as a template to reskin.
francisco666 for his LW3 artwork that I used as a template to reskin. pinballfan6500 for his work on getting a rom dump of this rare table.
toxie for adding the rom to the vpinmame beta.
Thalamus for his FSS additions to the script.
32assassin for a bunch of modifications to the WIP which some made it to this table and some will have to be added. Sorry, I didn't do them all. Please release your version, It does not matter if there are two or more downloads of this table. Oh and included with this table is HiRez00's very nice wheel art. IMPORTANT: YOU NEED THE BETA 3.3 OF VPINMAME TO PLAY THIS TABLE https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=core&module=attach§ion=attach&attach_id=31231 Download the rom here and rename it mj_130.zip https://www.ipdb.org/files/3425/Data_East_1992_Michael_Jordan_ROMs.zip Sorry if I missed anybody in the credits. Let me know and I will add you.
By GoldchiccoThanks to 32assassin help and support this table now is completely alive!!!
All sound are working
Gates and Targets added to collections created ad sound added
Layer 1 wire triggers are now set to VPX triggers deleted the primitive wire
copied the slingshot rubbers (for animation) from the default table they need to be shaped to fit the table
Spinning disk code was rebuilt no more walls took Primitive and code from DJRobX Twister
Layer 2 removed trigger s20 and s21 and used Gates as triggers
added walls to stop ball
Generic Triggers# are only used for generic sounds
Layer 3 added missing lights
Layer 4 Prim Robot is now animated
Layer 5 GI code has been added simply add all your lights and add them to GI collection
Layer 6 added multiple missing lights controlled by Solenoids
Layer 7 You should consider adding components from the default VPX table some of this objects built by walls can be found in primitive form as an example I added a Lane Guide Prim
Layer 8 No Changes just moved Plastics to Layer 8
Layer 9 added Physical subway, only way this will work is if I built a prim PF
all kicker codes where updated, a vertical kick is now visible.
Once more Special Thanks to 32assassin, he sent me those words:
"feel free to upload and distribute the table this is why I took the time to rebuild the code"
By ninuzzuCactus Canyon Continued (Bally 1998)
Since the original release of the table, Fast Flips support was added. Fast Flips can be enabled using the script at Thalamus's Github script repository. Link:
https://github.com/sverrewl/vpxtable_scripts/blob/master/Cactus Canyon (Bally 1998) TTNZ v2.0.vbs
For VPX 10.4 or 10.5, updating the script requires deleting out the old script and pasting in the updated script. For CCC, the P-ROC flag should be changed to a value of 1.
For VPX 10.6, users can just copy the vbs file to the same folder as the table. The vbs file name should be identical to the table file name. Rename if necessary. When opening the table in VPX 10.6, the contents of the vbs file should automatically be loaded. For CCC, the P-ROC flag should be changed to a value of 1.
For users that have already installed Python 2.7 version of P-ROC, there is no need to install it again. Nothing has changed with the P-ROC installer since V3.2 which was the version available at MBPC before they closed. They may just want to run Install CCC.bat (requires wget.exe from the installer "files" folder).
For users that have updated the game code recently (since Aug 30, 2018), they do not need to run Install CCC.bat. It will not do any harm if they do want to run it. There are not any new code or assets at this time. But I will maintain Install CCC.bat if there are any updates.
For new installs, the order is
1. STEP 1 - Install Prerequisites.bat
2. STEP 2 - Install PROC.bat
3. Install CCC.bat
Sorry, I can't provide much support beyond this. The installer worked for me out-of-the-box on both my laptop and my cabinet.
If users happen to have any chepas tables, the only other thing to do to complete the installation is to open a command prompt and type:
pip install requests
By SkitsoThis is a remaster of Tom Tower's and Ninuzzu's Medieval Madness Reloaded.
Project lead, visuals and QA - Skitso Scripting, gameplay and physics - rothbauerw Mesh playfield and primitives - bord -- Original authors: Tom Tower and Ninuzzu Features:
Completely revamped gameplay and physics with all the modern VP tricks New mesh playfield with all nice holes and edges visible New animations and sound Improved GI lighting Completely new inserts lighting Completely new flasher lighting Completely new wall reflections and other atmosphere elements Completely new HD apron texture Improved playfield texture Countless amount of bigger and smaller details and polish
By kalavera3thanks to Sliderpoint and Xenonph for allowing me to modify his incredible NFL table.
thanks to Sliderpoint for his model of goalkeeper, really stayed perfect!
This table is one of my favorites, the first stern design after acquiring the division of sega pinballs and it is believed that this design was inherited from that company. the version that had been quite old and with graphics in low resolution, the playfield recreates it by parts, since I could not find a good quality photo to do it, the script is the same as the one that had the Sliderpoint and Xenonph table, with some small changes, like the lights.
I hope you like it.

It needs the rom named "barbwire.zip". Hopefully you have a friend who has it, because the Gottlieb roms were pulled for all of the VP sites.
