Thanks for the update. Looks so clear and clean. Great job JP & Grizz. Just played 2 balls and in my cab at least it seems that I get a ball collision too easily with the captive balls. I mean I hear the collision sounds when going by the 2 captive balls without actually hitting them. Any one else have this issue. Definitely not complaining just explaining what I see. Maybe it all in my mind but I am wondering if anyone else sees this. The captive balls also don't seem to move perfectly for me, but that might just be my graphic settings.

WOW I had a really great pinball day as I spent it at the Silverball Museum in Asbury Park, NJ. and I now get to play an updated TOTAN table, Thanks guys.

Shouldn't this be a "mod" ?
Grizz did an amazing job...a true artist for sure
...but this is VERY different than the original.
I almost would want this version after the original one on my cabinet. (maybe have a new Hyperpin wheel logo for this new table?)

Well.
That is certainly different.
I will give it a try tomorrow.
Very strange not having all the lamp inserts blue as well as the other color modifications.

the playfield looks like a christmas tree now. Gives it a different look with all the triangles different colors. Could never do that on the real machine. All the inserts are blue. :) Looks like CV now.

This is a graphics mod and IMHO should be called that.

No blonde arabian girl with makeup and yellow ruby for me, thanks.

"Tales of the Arabian Nights VP912FS F*cked-up" would be a more appropriate title.
The term "enhanced" is a bit misleading for a totally pointless color-scheme change.

Wow! I'm surprised by all the harsh comments... I thought the effort put into the graphics was rather impressive!!

Really, if the colour scheme isn't for you than grab the other version that JP put out. He made the effort to put out two different versions in both FS and Desktop so there's really no need to complain about one or the other, just grab the one you would prefer more.

Sure there's differences between feedback, constructive criticism, and just sheer criticism that have different aspects but certainly comments towards the harsher side are just not necessary and will only go to pushing away authors of which we have very few.

JP, thank your very much for your efforts and providing us with some choices and flare in this table! You are appreciated very much and I think that if more users on this site actually tried to author and release tables, they might possibly be less forthcoming with harsh comments.

I'd like to see you do a better job.
At least have some respect for people who devote a gazillion hours of work to give us something for FREE.

Was just gonna quickly say thanks for the refreshing new look table - it makes a nice change.

As for the lack of respect shown earlier, not worth the few bytes of disk space it occupies.

A simple "Thank You" is fine.

If you don't like it, don't play it. No need to be nasty.

Thanks JP and Grizz, great work as always!

I really don't understand what is going on around here anymore!!??

I have been here 2 years i think, and I have never seen so much disrespect as i have in the last couple months on and off with these complaints as above.

All i can say is that you complaining idiots are lucky I am not Noah, or i would clean up camp and ask questions later!!

Sorry JP and Grizzly. I apologize on behalf of the boneheads.
