About This File
This SPECIAL EDITION B2S Backglass, and Special Video Backglass Version were made especially for Siggi's Jurassic Park table mod, BUT ... you can always use them as an alternate backglass set for ANY Jurassic Park (Data East 1993) VPX table.
The original backglass / translite for this pinball wasn't very interesting, so I decided to make a new backglass using a brand new / high-resolution alternate image "authentic" and "fantasy" b2s backglass fx.
Backglass is Dual Mode with Authentic (simulated turn on and constant illumination) and Fantasy (basic light animation).
The special VIDEO backglass (included in HD - 1920 x 1080 and 2K - 2200 x 1238 format resolutions) was made because what I wanted to do with this VIDEO backglass was not possible with a b2s file (lighting and rain fx) without either a huge file size or the risk of slowing down the tables gameplay - ie: ball stutter. I explain how to use the VIDEO version of the backglass further in this post.
That's why I opted to make VIDEO version that continuously loops, instead. This drastically reduces any lag or stutter that would happen with a multi-frame bs2 backglass file.
I personally am using the 2k special backglass video in my cabinet and NOT the B2S animated backglass (cuz it is way cooler!) - but I still made the B2S versions for both 2 and 3 screen users so they wouldn't feel left out.
I also made a couple of mew wheel images specifically for this backglass / video if you decide to have multiple versions of the table in your setup.
Real Color DMD users will be happy to see I also included a RealColorDMD AVI and MP4 using snippets from the real dmd + a couple animations and additions I did by hand - i.e.: the T-Rex walking across the logo.
Backglass videos, wheels, and topper videos have been split into separate .zip files so you only need to download what you want / need.
All files have been tested.

HOW TO USE VIA PINBALLX :
1.) Make sure you name / rename the VPX table a completely different name than any other version of the table you may have. So instead of naming the table Jurassic Park (Data East 1993).vpx - name the table JP-Special (Data East 1993).vpx - or something else creative. This will prevent VPX from trying to "match" the b2s file to the table when it loads. You should NOT rename any Jurassic Park b2s to that file name. It should load without any backglass present because there is no backglass named that special name.
2.) Load PinballX's game manager and select "Add New" table. Use the manager to add the JP-Special (Data East 1993) table as the table name. You can set the Description to whatever you want ... Using the Import pulldown menu, and select Backglass - and load the backglass .MP4 file. Load the other stuff if you want at this time, i.e.: Wheel Image, Topper, etc.
3.) IMPORTANT: Directly under the Table name and Description for this table in PinballX, there is a row of check boxes. Make sure "Hide Backglass" is UNCHECKED. This will keep the backglass video running when load the table through PinballX and keep it on the screen looping while you are playing the table.
4.) Load PinballX, scroll through to this particular table, and go ahead and load it ... and go PLAY pinball!
Similar styled front ends can use "basically" the same process.
