FanTasTic JPSalas .. a Superb release and a Very Nice Playable Table!
ps. the only thing I miss out on is the .uvp Backglass possibility ..
be scripted without using vpm?
ok, you can get UVP
to work with Spiderman if you choose a known working rom and hide the display and turn off sound in the script.
This way you can have a UVP
Spiderman backglass lit up in your cabinet when playing this amazing release. HEre are the details:
I've chosen high roller casino rom, though it really doesn't matter which DMD
rom you call. At least its Stern
You'll have to change the script on the FS
release to this:
comment out this line, it will get loaded later
' ExecuteGlobal GetTextFile("core.vbs"):If Err Then MsgBox "Can't open ""core.vbs"""
And revise this section to look like this:
' Table Init
LoadVPM "01120100", "wpc.VBS", 3.26
Const cGameName = "hirolcas"
Sub LoadVPM(VPMver, VBSfile, VBSver)
On Error Resume Next
If ScriptEngineMajorVersion < 5 Then MsgBox "VB Script Engine 5.0 or higher required"
Set Controller = CreateObject("UltraVP.BackglassServ")
If Err Then MsgBox "Can't Load VPinMAME." & vbNewLine & Err.Description
On Error Goto 0
.GameName = cGameName
If Err Then MsgBox "Can't start Game" & cGameName & vbNewLine & Err.Description : Exit Sub
.SplashInfoLine = "Spiderman" & vbNewLine & "Stern 2007"
.HandleMechanics = 0
.ShowDMDOnly = 1
.ShowFrame = 0
.ShowTitle = 0
.Games(cGameName).Settings.Value("sound") = 0
If Err Then MsgBox Err.Description
On Error Goto 0
Table1.MaxBallSpeed = 50
GameStarted = 0
Of course like any UVP
backglass, you'll need to rename your table to UVP
Spiderman, download the UVP
Spiderman.uvp and backglass from FDs site,
put the files in the appropriate folders: C:\HyperPin\Media\Visual Pinball\Backglass Images for backglass, C:\HyperPin\UltraVP for the uvp file.
Then, edit the Visual Pinball.xml with the following lines:
