Transformers Stern SAM

Based on the Stern table Transformers Pro from 2011.      
Playfield & plastics all redrawn by me.
Thanks to ROM/Slamt1lt for letting me use their models from their FP table.
The table uses the Pro version of the rom. Download it from Stern's web site and rename it to tf_180.zip

The table's layout and the playfield graphics should be as close as possible to the Stern's table. The plastics images are only similar, and the ramps are completely different, as they are wire ramps. I could have used ROM's ramps, but the original ramps may work on the real table but in this VP table they hide the flipper insert lights, and the wire ramps let me see the state of those lights, which are important in the game play. I also feel wire ramps feels better than plastic ramps in the all metal Transformers table :) I guess I could have enhanced them a little, as I simply copy them from my Iron Man table.

I also changed Megatron figure using a robot model, and I also changed some flashers from the original table.

The gameplay is as close as possible as to what I have seen in the papa video. Even the ramp hits using a back flip can be done, both left and right. They are difficult shots, but they can be done.
So, full gameplay, but a little different looks :)
And I don't want any mods of this table, if you want one table 100% like the original one then you'll need to make it yourself. This table was going to be in my private collection, so give thanks to Carlos Guizzo who convinced me to upload it.

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

  • 3.0 Updated 16.10.2020
  • Updated script, physics & graphics:
  • - added the arcade physics 3.0
  • - made optional modulated solenoids, default is off. The change must be done in the script, set the Const UseVPMModSol = True
  • - 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.
  • 2.0.0 Updated 04.01.2020
