Great update.  Table looks so much better.

 

For those with 3 screen cab (lcd dmd), make sure your screenres.txt is set correctly.  Launch game and hit F1. Uncheck use external dmd.

 

That way you get the correct dmd for this game to show on third screen.  (Assuming you downloaded a 3 screen b2s).

Also thanks again to the guys of the previous versions.  Man, time is running fast...

I can barely read some of the text in the inserts. Is that normal or is it some thing that I can adjust to make them show better?

I'm a big fan of this table, and this tune up looks beautiful and plays great.  Thanks to all involved.

Beautiful table. Williams really made some outstanding pinball creations during this timeframe. Quick question - does anyone have a POV for their cab that they are using with this one? On my display it's hard to stretch the corners to fit without cutting off the sides and I am always scared to start tweaking myself for fear it will screw up something. At any rate - thanks again!

Get in there and get your hands dirty. Anything done in the editor isn't saved until you give final approval. 

This build out of the box didn't need much tweaking on my set up. A little inclination,  a little x y . But every cab is different so one person's perfect POV may not work for someone else. Go experiment!

These guys are not kidding... simply fantastic work!!!

but I would also like the POV settings to be the same as the one in the photo...
there's no way, for me the photo doesn't match the table available...

for example, on the right side the distance from the Santa Claus cap on the taxi to the edge and on the left side the distance from the black sign that has a taxi moving to the edge are not the same as in the photo posted by VPW...

no matter how hard you try to adjust it, making any and all changes to the table's adjustments, it can't be the same...

VPW team, could you show us the POV used on the table in this photo?

 

don't know why my flipper rubbers aren't blue, they're red and it's set to blue rubbers on the table???!!!???

 

thanks hugs

I see what you're...not seeing as well.  Looks like the side-panels depth is deeper in the pic than what's possible in the pov settings.  I think @BrandonLawwas recently discussing side rails somewhere and a VPW member had some suggestions, but I can't find that thread.  Maybe he can 'chime' in?

Cheers!

@teisen @JFR1 if you'd like to have your cab view match the VPW screenshot you'll need to first scale the side panels using the  included "Cabinet Mode" option at the top of the script:

 

Const CabinetMode = 1        '0 - Off, 1 - Hides rails & scales side panels

 

Next you'll also need to adjust the following three POV settings in the editor:

X Scale = 0.895

X Offset = 33

Z Offset = -500

 

Leave the remaining POV settings as they were originally preset by VPW.

 

Save, play and enjoy!

@JFR1 Yep.  I have been in POV-land for about a week now really  getting dialed in on what the Z-Offset can bring to the party.  I'll fire up the cab in a bit and see what my Taxi looks like, but if it has a cabinet option, you can bet that puppy is on (1.)  Cab rails are a tough call when there's a VR setup as the whole cab is a privative and really shouldn't be messed with when it comes to 'size' and 'offset.'  If you have an older (non-vr) table, you can adjust the wall height and usually get away with a taller wall without too much fussing.

Wow! now yes, it was perfect!

but is this a setting that works for any VPX table or is it specific to the tables developed by VPW?

was unaware of this function on their table...

what was good got much better :)

Thank you very much
