Thank you, Master.
I hit the secret passage and lost the ball (the ball came with the right speed to enter).
I think it has fallen below the lower playfield.

JP, I just had this happen as well.... What happened in my case is the ball hit the secret passage target and dropped, but i could see it move in a circle once behind the target, so i am thinking it didn't roll down the ramp... it seems to have gotten stuck at the top of balldropperramp3.

I have used Arial, Regular, size 8. I know VP and the problems with the fonts, that's why I opted to use a standard font.
Just change the size of the fonts, or change it to anyone you like.

About the ball behind the secret passage: I'll take a look and I'll see what's missing there smile.gif A quick fix could be to find teh wall "Wall665" and make its bottom height 300 (instead of 400)

Thanks for this easy fix.
Another thing, you see a black line between the two ramps to the right, with a third ramp not collidable and the full image of the ramp you can correct this error,
and put invisible the two existing ramps.

Thanks

It sounds like you need to enable the hardware device rendering in the options in VP Preferences.
Cheers.

Lots of fun to play - I love the bounciness of the rubbers - but I'm having two issues shown on the pic below, the flippers and the weird grid on the lower playfield glass. The flippers all show up like that except the left upper playfield one, which looks normal. When I enable hardware rendering, all the graphics disappear and the flippers now have a black rectangle above them (see lower picture), except for the same upper left playfield one, which still appears normal. Can anyone help?

I guess you also need to turn on hardware rendering. Remember to quit and start VP again after turning hardware rendering (from the editor menu: preferences, video options)
