Original VPX recreation by ninuzzu & Tom Tower
New 2.x version made by team Fleep, Rothbauerw, 3rdaxis, Skitso
 
Physics redesign, flashers and many logic scripts redesign by Rothbauerw
Completely new sound system and sound files by Fleep
Visuals redesign - GI, Inserts, Flasher, and partial playfield redraw by Skitso
LUT sets by Skitso, 3rdaxis, Fleep, CalleV
Advice, Support and Various adjustments, fixes, blade art editing, gold saw mod and script additions by 3rdaxis
 
Thanks to ninuzzu & Tom Tower for their VPX recreation
Thanks to bord for new primitive playfield
Thanks to G5K for his primitive flippers
Thanks to flupper for his flasher dome and texture
Thanks to nickbuol and CalleV for their support and advice regarding TOM real table
Thanks to CalleV for high res blade art scans
 
 
Special thanks to:
nickbuol, CalleV, Amazaley1, Jon Osborne - for assisting with pinball recordings of videos and sounds for this big sound project
 
 
Features:
- Completely new sound system for mechanical sounds; Full SSF/DOF support in script
- Meticulous, redesigned physics including FastFlips
- Modular Flashers (Disable/Enable in script)
- VR Support (Disable/Enable in script)
- Outlane Difficulty options (Disable/Enable in script)
- Tiger Saw Mod allows for golden saw blades instead of silver
- Blade selection - original wood (Default) or blade art (Defined in script)
- LUT selection is done using left/right CTRL keys to toggle between LUTs, toggling can be disabled in script
 
 
Other Remarks:
- VPX 10.6 or higher with updated VBS scripts folder is required to run this table
- By default modulated flashers are disabled for better performance; Enable them for more realistic Flasher effects
- Modulated flashers will cause performance issues if you do not have windows real-time protection disabled
- Tiger Saw motor enabled in this table (requires rom tom_14hb)
- For sharp blade arts, Brute-force 4x SSAA must be enabled or go to the editor and check static rendering
- It is advised to keep Night/Day Scale, Light Emission Scale and Environment Emission Scale settings as they are in order to allow best compatibility for the LUTs selection 
- VolumeDial - Global volume multiplier for the mechanical sounds in script
- All sounds are scripted, volumes can be modified down below in the script
- In rare cases restarting VPM will reset the switches without properly reinitialize the them. As result - the trunk does not function properly or the table has a missing ball. In such case delete NVRAM and cfg file and restart the game.

For anyone who struggle with error U22 here's what to do:
Press F1 to bring up the ROM options menu, and then select "Skip ROM startup tests"
 
This table requires Theatre of Magic (1.4H Coin Play) - rom "tom_14hb" which is a clone of - Theatre of Magic (1.3X) - rom "tom_13"
You will need both to be in your roms folder
Also - Using PinMame32 - ensure your roms shown as valid and not corrupted




yeeeeeeeeeees!!!!!!!

 

Thanks for all the team and all your amasing work!

So beautiful....so beautiful....
