Blood Machines (VPW Original 2022)


Alright, let’s do this old school…

 

VPinWorkshop are proud to present our very first original table, “Blood Machines”, based on the movie from Seth Ickerman with music by Carpenter Brut.

 

After watching Blood Machines iaakki thought that it would make a great theme for a pinball table, so we started talking about it in VPW and decided that if we were going to do it as our first completely original VPW table, that we wanted to do it properly.
With this in mind we contacted Seth Ickerman to see if they would be interested in the project and to see if there was any chance they would be able to provide any assets that we could use. Thankfully Not only were they amazed at what we were doing, but they supplied us with 70gig of 3D models and textures which were used in the film!
The only issue now was that these were so high detail that a huge amount of work was needed to optimize them so they would even load in VPX, but thankfully Flupper came to the rescue and did a fantastic job optimising the models and textures so we could put them in the table without setting your PC on fire (for example the ship went down from 8 million polygons to 130,000!)

 

At the time of writing this the table was at revision 335 (release candidate 1.5) with *well* over 1000 man-hours sunken into it, the amount of work has been staggering but we hope that you’ll agree that it was worth it.
The table itself has loads of features that have never been seen before in other VPX tables and we have tried our best to keep most/all of it secret as we want everyone to experience it for themselves firsthand, which is why until very recently we’ve kept details very close to our chest.

 

*IMPORTANT*
In order to fully enjoy the table and play it as it was designed to be played, you will need to purchase the awesome soundtrack by Carpenter Brut (about £5/$5/5e) and place the MP3s in your vpinball music directory:
C:\Visual Pinball\Music\BLOOD MACHINES OST
We really hope people do support the artist and purchase it from;

Nice work here... just one question, is there any way to enable Free Play on this table? While I have a full suite of coin buttons on my cab, it's nice when I don't have to use them.

No setting for it right now.  Probably feasible in script; you'd basically need to lock the credits variable and dmd to 1 wherever it's changed (possibly init, dmd load, game start, players added - not looking at the code right now ;) ).

I bought and put the music in d:vpinball\visualpinball\music\and created a folder as instructed

 

I changed the script to point there and I still get no songs found

 

 

 

The music filenames must match the text between the quotation marks in the script exactly.  I had to alter mine a bit.

I seem to have an issue when the backglass lingers once in awhile and stays on when launching other games or browsing through popper. Right now I have exited popper and it is still displaying on the backglass. 

This is the only table that does this so i'm thinking its specific to this table. Any thoughts?

For sure one of the most addictive tables out there! Cant stop playing 😉 just great.

For me its way too hard to properly aim and shoot with the "center gun" (light gun? how you call it? ) Is there some kind of rnd-function there which makes it harder than it really is, like sth that sets a delay from pressing the button to shooting the ball? I'd like to lower the value of this rnd-function  if possible 😉  Thank you!

Gun is instant, you'll just need to practice 😉

Great story for a super project, seems really well done, thanks to all people involved!

I will do the dof in a couple of days ;)

It's got full DOF, make sure your config is up to date!

sometimes the lights remain in attract mode after starting a game, didnt find out, when this happens (in V1.0, just saw there is a V1.1, maybe its solved anyway?)

 

Hmm. I've seen that too - but, only once. That time I did tilt the game as the ball drained on the right. I don't know if it is fixed in 1.1 or not, but, if you experience this again, maybe try to make a note on what happened.

Drag the window until you can see the bottom right corner -> drag that corner to resize -> get it where you want it -> right click the window -> save position globally.  Then you can later adjust each table and save their positions if you want them in a different spot.

Update your VPX to 10.7 final (rev 367) or newer, GetInPlayStateBool was added.

I'm having issues with the VR room. It loads but then goes black and crashes and I have to exit out. It happens with every type of VR room. Also when it loads it's like half the table / view is cut off at the bottom. Any ideas? I had this similar problem on Judge Dredd with the ultra minimal room but when I switched to the minimal room that fixed it. On this one I can't get any of them to run. The table runs fine in regular mode. I'm using the latest release of vpvr.

 

Thanks
