Cheetah Stern 1980

Based on the Stern table from 1980.      
Thanks to StrangeLeo and Kalavera for the pictures of the real table.
Light numbers taken from Destruk/Lander table as they are not described in the manual. I also added the backdrop lights.
I have redrawn the playfield & the plastics, but I kept the animals and girls from the real table.
I have changed the default rom to use the cheetah2, which allows you the bonus shot just once per ball. The original rom had a flaw where the bonus shot (left lane) kept lit after collecting the bonus, so you could hit the lane again and again and collect the bonus again. So that made the game not so fun anymore :) And if you are in the mood you can change the rom to cheetah1 which will let you collect the bonus at the left lane just once per game.
You may change the rom in the script:
'Const cGameName = "cheetah" 'original ROM
'Const cGameName = "cheetah1" 'bonus shot 1/game
Const cGameName = "cheetah2" 'bonus shot 1/ball
'Const cGameName = "cheetafp" 'free play

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

  • 4.0.0 Updated 18.9.2022
  • - Updated to my VPX7 physics
  • - cleaned up and deleted unused graphics & reduced the size of the table
  • - Added my VPX7 LUT changer to darken 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.
  • - Some small small script updates, like the Rolling sound and PlaySoundAt routines.
  • - Made the light inserts warmer.
  • - Added SSF sound commands.
  • 1.0.1 Fixed desktop light
  • 1.0.0 Released 24.05.2018

Thanks JP, StrangeLeo and Kalavera for this classic 80s pinball, amazing again.



Oh my. Thank you so much JP ! I feel I've been waiting for this table to come to VPX for ages. Also, thank you very much Kalavera and StrangeLeo.

WoW!! Thanks for sharing. Thanks also to everyone involved like StrangeLeo and Kalavera. 

Looks amazing as always JP :)

Sorry, i prefer VP9 tables only  JP :)

A nice Table, like the sounds very much.

Although i think these would suit a spce theme better.

However, Cheetah a wild pussy, worth 5 stars for sure.



Another great rendering by a true artist! The magic continues. Thanks JP!
