Based on the Taito table from 1983 .
Thanks to Carlos Guizzo for all the resources.
Also thanks to 32assassin for making also a VPX version of this table, from were I "borrowed" the wire ramp on the upper floor :)
I built the table from scratch, as always. In this table I have used some primitives on top of the flippers to gave them a nice shape. The normal VPX flippers are still visible and if you want to change their color or the rubber color then you can do it in the editor, no need to change images.
Also if you prefer black rubbers instead of white, then simply load the table in the editor, press SHIFT CTRL E, sort all the objects by type, select all the rubbers and change their material to Rubber Black. Save the table, and you'll have black rubbers.

What's New in Version 1.0.2 (See full changelog)

  • 1.0.2 Updated 17.09.2018
  • - fixed a ball stuck possibility when shooting for the upper playfield.
  • - Added the rules in English to the table info. Thanks Carlos & Bord for the translation.
  • 1.0.1 Updated 15.09.2018
  • - fixed the upper playfield, now using the solenoid, which actually has a timer. I thought there was something wrong and in version 1.0.0 I disabled it. But there is a timer! Then the solenoid was always working fine :)

And to state the obvious again: It looks brilliant and has a tiny filesize! WTF!

Great! Thanks for the update and the translated instructions!

(Go to Table>Image Manager (F3), Import the "plastics_en" File from the zip file and click OK, activate the Options Window (top left side), click on the apron on the table, in the Options under Colors & Formatting Top Image choose plastics_en. Save the table)

Great! Thank you!
