Here it comes!!!

Williams Whirlwind (1990)
Original Table Design by Pat Lawlor, Art by John Youssi
VPM Conversion by Noah Fentz and UncleReamus.

Special thanks go to destruk for scripting help and his suggestions, jpsalas for various script snippets, and to all of those who provided resources and play testing.

This table marks a few firsts for me. Mainly, the ramp technique used. My main goal in this table, and probably all others in the future, will be to create realistic lighting effects for the full pinball experience. -Noah

When I try to run Whirlwind, I get the following error:
Line:677 Object doesn't support this property or method: 'Plunger.MotionDevice'

After that, the game goes back to the main VP loading screen. Any ideas?

My apologies! I realized I was running VP 9.0.4 and not 9.0.5. When I ran the correct one, the game worked wonderfully.

THANK YOU for all the great work!
