For all guys who think this it's "just" a graphical mod of "Laser War": Yes, it is BUT IT IS A LOT MORE.

Here some ideas to extend the ROM based ruleset. So we have:

– a 15-second ball save

– 7 additional targets to start a change-track-mode for the background music

– an extended multiball mode called "Eddie madness"

– some very cool surprises like "Fear of the Dark"

– maybe 40 female and male voice samples, triggered by special events during gameplay

– a very cool background music rotation mode: Just throw your music files into the "music" folder, name them like "Iron Maiden – …" and they will be included in the music rotation

– and a lot more.

 

Have fun and enjoy!


Release notes: 


Version 1.0.0 : Initial release

 

Version 1.0.1: 
- Some bugfixes and improvements 
- New voice sample for ball-1-locked 
- Voice sample changed Ball Save + Kick Save 
- New option to avoid the intro-f*** sample 
- Fixed a bug when during ball save mode the multiball was started 
- A bit of friction add on the rampe to slowdown ball return 
- Added FlexDMD support 
- Reworked the LEDs a bit

 


FOR YOUR INFO:

If you encounter performance issues, try to set some of the objects to "Static rendering". Open layer 7, select all screws and/or locknuts and select "Static Rendering" in the options window

Or try to disable "Reflect Elements On Playfield" in the settings.here a bit of the “Game play”


Play it some times you’ll discover things…

 

1 Ball Lock gives a second Ball , if you lock it quick enough you’ll receive the 3 balls multiball
if not enough quick, it unlock the 1st ball … you have to lock both to get the 3 balls MB.

When 3 Balls MB, you have Eddie Madness ready, hit the ramp and get 2 more balls , then you run Eddis Madness  mode 5 balls MB ! and get unlocked “Can I play with Madness” in the track – list ;)

After any MB mode , Fear of the Dark training will open 15s (5s more each later MB)
This gives you practice for the Fear of the Dark Mode (FotD)

FotD is hidden in the Music track change as a locked song , select it and you’ll have to play blind the full song intro of FotD (1m40s)
If you do so , you’ll win the mode and unlock the song Fear of the Dark track in the list.

To change track , shoot down the 7 yellow targets and hit the magnet.

Repare : LRLRLR

Thanks Fire78,

Please verify if you placed well the Mp3 files , check if the UltraDMD (or FlexDMD)  work well and look into the script to choose the one you use. 

Also be sure having the Rom lwar_a83

 Hi mussinger,

Thanks for the quick reply.  Yes I have the Rom,PM3 files in the music folder, and have changed to FlexDMD in the scripts.  I don't think I have a problem with UltraDMD or FlexDMD as other tables I have use them and they work fine.....I will keep trouble shooting...

 

Thank ya!

Ola mussginger,

 

Well I guess we have a problem with UltraDMD and /or FlexDMD.  I disabled DMD in the scripts and now I can load the table and play.  But the DMD is just your basic one and says Laser war.  Any ideas what to look for thats going wrong with the DMDs?  I have other tables running them and its fine.

Thanx again.  Just gonna go play that table for a bit before I trouble shoot again!

What did you do to fix it? I'm having the same issue. Other Ultra and Flex work fine, and this runs with the setting at 0, but either Ultra or Flex just crashes.

**EDIT - I was being daft and got it fully functioning. Best table i've played to date.

 

Hey, hoping someone may be able to help and please excuse my ignorance as i'm only just diving into this hobby. I've got Visual PinballX installed and i've downloaded the table and got it loaded but I can't seem to add credits no matter what I try, just keep hearing the No Credit No Game voice line and although i've hit the add credit button a million times it doesn't seem to do anything.

 

Feel sure i'm just idiotically missing something but if anyone is able to tell me what i'm doing i'd be greatly appreciative!
