Based on the table by Stern from 1980 and the layout of the Stern's The Beatles from 2018.
Graphics taken from the FP table by Martin Brunker and edited by me for VPX.
I made this table just for fun :) It is basically Seawitch with the new layout of the Beatles.
This gives a whole new feeling and flow to Seawitch. You can make loops from both right flippers, upper and lower, and in Seawitch you couldn't hit a loop from the lower right flipper.
All the posts and rubbers are differently situated.
This is a nice example of the Arcade Physics 3.0, in which the flippers are still very strong, they shoot consistently and to the right angles, and what controls the ball speed is just that maxvel variable, which in this table is set to 30. Still fast, since this table should be quite fast.
The flippers top angle are lower, this to make the shots a little better to the sides, and the make a little more difficult to control the ball.
The rubbers are bouncy, but without shooting the ball at warp speeds (just 3.0 default settings here)
And the table is free to mod if you want to make a more close "The Beatles" with the right layout :)
Have fun

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

  • 4.0.0 Updated 13.10.2022
  • - 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).
  • - Updated my mechanical set of sounds to a more "under the glass" sound.
  • - Changed the Environment image to enhance a little the object shadows.
  • - Some small script updates, like the Rolling sound and PlaySoundAt routines.
  • 3.0.0 Released 25.10.2020
  • Updated script, physics & graphics:
  • - added the arcade physics 3.0
  • - 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.
  • - some extra collision sounds and added more random on the hits sounds.
