Based on the 2003 Stern table Lord of the Rings.
Special thanks to bassgeige for suggesting and testing the table.
I build the table from scratch, so it is not a conversion of my old VP9 table.
Original 3D models from GLBX. I have adapted them to VPX and adjusted their textures.
The path of the dead figures are simple images since I didn't have any 3D models of them.
This is a lighter table, not only because of its textures & lightning, but also because it is under 14Mb.
This table is simply an alternative table which is lighter on resources for systems with older graphic cards, for ex. laptops, although the Stern rom emulation is quite heavy on the cpu.
It uses the ROM sounds since they have been greatly enhanced by the latest vpinmame.
Most of the images are from the real table, I have only replaced or redrawed a few of them, mostly the apron, the lower plastics and the light inserts and texts.

What's New in Version 3.0.0 (See full changelog)

  • 3.0 Updated 31.10.2020
  • Updated script, physics & graphics:
  • - added the arcade physics 3.0
  • - enhanced the images if they were not already 4k (or close enough :) ).
  • - removed workarounds for the vpinmame droptargets as they fully support SSF (hit sounds) with the latest vpinmame.
  • - new rolling routine that now includes the ball shadow, the ball drop sound from Rothbauer and my ball speed control.
  • - Easy change of the ambient lightning: Hold down LeftMagnaSave and with RightMagnaSave it will switch between LUT images, from light to dark, 9 levels, and the selection will be saved for the table.
  • - added sideblades
  • - some extra collision sounds.

  • - adjusted the Gimli hole so it catches the ball more often
  • - adjusted some of the sounds.
  • 1.1.1 Updated 26.12.2018
