Bram Stoker's Dracula VP91x 1.04



Version: 1.0.4
Category: VPinMAME 9.x Recreations

Author(s): jpsalas, jimmyfingers

Description:
Based on the Williams table from 1993
Thanks to all who sent me pictures.
Thanks to Dorsola for the magnet code and to Lander for his table which I have used to learn and play the table as if it was the real one.

Not much to say about the table, just the usual, angle independent, fading lights, etc.

I have used very few GI lights and flashers so this table should play good on older computers. Although there are a few alpha ramps, they don't seem to slow down the table.

The decoration on top of the bumper and slingshots are just that: decoration. So if you don't want them you can just delete them since they are not used in any effect (Gi or flashers).

Note about the playfield highlander is making: I have not used his playfield since it wasn't ready when I finished the table. Since highlander is making it 100% compatible with the table. later it will be possible to replace the playfield easily (some work will need to be done to add the fading lights, the GI lights and the flashers, which could be very much enhanced, since I kept them to a minimum).

JP

UPdate 1.01
- fixed ball falling of the right ramp
- fixed switches on top of ramps to better detect faster balls.
- fixed the top ramp graphics

Update 1.02
- fixed the top diverter
- made more visible the coffin ramp.
- made the mist magnet faster

Update 1.03
- Added the moving ramp

Update 1.04
- Added B2B collision sounds by jimmifingers
- Added ball rolling sounds.

Bram Stokers Dracula - One of my few all-time favourites.

I didn't notice at all that it was in work.

Thank you so much, Juan Pablo!

Chocolate?

Once downloaded and played I will see, if this table can/will bring me back the fun in playing PC pinball tables, that I somehow lost in the last few years.
I hope so much.

Next project is Monster Bash, right? biggrin.gif

Thanks again,

yogi

If only Count Von Smurf could go suck the blood from those who have wronged him, all would be right in the world. LOL

Another great table JP. Enjoy a good long summer of sun and fun.

Update 1.01
- fixed ball falling of the right ramp (added some ramps on top to make a "roof" smile.gif )
- fixed switches on top of ramps to better detect faster balls. (changed to use normal triggers, bigger and higher)
- fixed the top ramp graphics (change from solid to acrylic, and so the ramps fits better and the gaps disappear)
