What's New in Version 4.0.0 (See full changelog)

  • 4.0.0 Updated 29.8.2022
  • - Updated to my VPX7 physics
  • - cleaned up and deleted unused graphics & reduced the size of the table
  • - Added my VPX7 LUT changer to darker the table (hold down LEFT CTRL while change with RIGHT CTRL). Including GI brightness adjustment. Use the LUT changer together with the day/night slider to give the table the level of darkness you prefer.
  • - Updated my mechanical set of sounds to a more "under the glass" sound, as people seem to like those kind of sounds better.
  • - Changed the Environment image to enhance a little the object shadows.
  • - Made the light inserts warmer, mostly the white lights.
  • 3.0 Updated 19.12.2020
  • Updated script & physics:
  • - added the arcade physics 3.0
  • - 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.
  • - some extra collision sounds and more random hit sounds.
  • 2.0.0 Updated 15.12.2019
  • - Script changes:
  • Added SSF sound and exchanged some mechanical sounds.
  • Added new fading lights routine which uses less cpu for the flash objects.
  • Added the NVram patch for Taito do Brasil tables by Pmax65, which fixes possible rom errors when quiting the tables during play.
  • Enabled fastflips
  • - New environment image for better looking metals and for better adjustment of the Night -> Day cycle.
  • - New material settings to suit the new environment image.
  • - added 3 colorgradeLUT images for normal, saturated and half saturated to better fit your monitor. The default is the normal color.
  • - New VPX physics (jp's arcade physics with lower friction and heavier flippers).Changed all the objects in contact with the ball: playfield, rubbers, plastics, metals, flippers, slingshots, bumpers...
  • - Extra decorations like a subtile ball shadow and flipper decorations
  • 1.0.2 Updated 24.04.2018
  • - added missing top gate, thanks maloti for finding the missing gate :)
  • 1.0.1 Updated 07.02.2018
  • - change the kicker hole to use a simple image and added its missing metal on the back.
  • - fixed a rubber animation
  • 1.0.0 released 27.01.2018

JPSalas when I load the Vortex recreation doesn,t appears the picture of kicker of the right:



Hi JP! I'm in love with this table. Great graphics and great physics. Only just a minor adjust... a gate missed. Please, see picture. Thank you! :)

I don't know why to attach pictures here, sorry.


The gate missed  is between the posts bonus X lanes and 3 bank right targets. Thank you! :)




I got it....



thanks !!!
