Back To the Future VP911



Version: 1.0.0
Category: VPinMAME 9.x Recreations

Author(s): jpsalas

Description:
Based on the table by Data East from 1990
This is a conversion of my and Groni's VP8 table. I have changed nearly everything, but some pictures may still have been done by Groni.

It can only be played with VP911 and later, since it uses alpha transparency on the ramps.

I guess the flippers are quite powerful, but I like them like this (I hate to keep pressing the button harder and harder trying to get a little more power to the flippers smile.gif )

Not much more to say about this table, I guess all you know about it smile.gif only the as all my VP9 tables it is completely angle free.

Yep, 4 days in the making smile.gif Well, the table was already done since it is a conversion from the VP8 (made by me and Groni). But if you compare the versions you'll see a lot of changes, I hope for the better smile.gif Still the script needed editing, the lights, the ramps, etc. Also if you notice the playfield and plastics, I have removed that yellow light color, so practically all the images needed to be redone.

Hi JP,
another good table for VP9.
I noticed that the left ramp doesn't score anything.
Initially registered in March, 2001.

Thanks for another great table. I am getting a weird graphical glitch w/ this that I have never seen on a table. I am using 912 w/ hardware rendering on and the alpha slider at 50%. I have an nvidia card and all of the tables, including newer tables w/ alpha are working great.

What I am seeing are small vertical bars on the upper half of the screen, they flash and there is one on each side of the screen. The bars themselves are random freak-out colors and seem to flash in sequence with a certain sound effect. If I am the only one seeing this, then maybe its a setting on my system, but I am not having issues w/ any other tables. Thanks again for all the work.

Thx JP for another superb release. Plays perfect and it is very fast! No glitches here whatsoever. Good graphical improvement, nice new transparent ramp (as the real table has).

Keep the updates coming smile.gif

Thanks JP the table looks great, except I'm getting these same glitches here, tried both 16 and 32 bit to no avail, same result.

* I've just tried the FS version and that has no glitches here?

That is exactly what it does for me.

I changed the Xscale and the YScale (equally to keep a round ball) to a smaller number and it's fixed. Then you can change the Yoffset to a smaller number to raise the table and fill in most of the space at the top that you create by lowering the Yscale. You might be able to just Raise the Yoffset and have it work.

[EDIT] I forgot to say, this is one of the nicest tables ever..... smile.gif Thanks JP!

Cool thanks Bob, must have been an off screen issue then. Here I only had to change the X and Y scales a little to 1.12 each and it still fills the screen. smile.gif
