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.

  • - Script changes:
  • Added SSF sound and exchanged some mechanical sounds.

  • 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 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 :)

Gracias !

JP is completely on fire again, making table after table! Thanks!!!

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!

Thanks for this! I haven't played this till today I love it! Thanks again!

Wow JP Slow down, I cant type that fast ;). Really though, such dedication to your work. We are so lucky JP. Thank you.

game loads but doesn't start...same with another of the games you uploaded yesterday. Is there a NVRAM or ROM needed ? Don't get any error just that the game won't start....
