**** REQUIRES VP 10 *****

If you enjoyed this game, *please* consider making a $5.00 donation to the Mountain Lion Backpack Program. This program supports underprivileged school aged children in the Central Pennsylvania Area by sending backpacks home with kids during the weekend with food, which ensures that kids won't go hungry over the weekends. I first learned about this program from my church and have to say it is really worthwhile.http://www.mountainlionbackpacks.org/,

 

Online donations can be made through centralpagives.org. (Make sure to choose Mountain Lion BackPack Program from the drop-down menu.) Please let me know if you choose to donate, it would be good to know that my game is helping Kids.

 

Basic Rules:

 

Game begins with a skillshot. The uppermost roll over will flash on and off. If you hit the rollover while the light is lit, it will advance the bonus multiplier

 

The upper rollover lanes will light when hit, hit all upper rollovers to advance multiplier.

 

When bumpers are hit, it advances which bumper is lit, or eligible to give the player a bonus. When you complete lower target banks, that will cause the bumper to flash instead of lighting. When hit, this bumper will then advance bonus.

 

Upper targets advance bonus when lit, when in a hidden sequence will cause timed shots to spinners to award bonus advance per spin.

 

Middle rollovers turn on left or right timed shots.

 

Left/right spinners award points when lit, advance bonus when flashing

 

Lower target sets award:

 

left turns on kickback

middle turns off timer for timed shots

right turns on hidden passage

 

complete all 3 sets to light extra ball

 

hit the saucer by the bumpers to collect bonus when bonus level is max'ed out. The saucer will award your bonus x bonus multiplier. If extra ball is lit, collect extra ball. If hidden pasage is open, this will raise hidden pegs in the right channel and will carry the ball into a hidden passage behind the lower right targets. This will trigger a timed mode where table values (including claimed bonuses via the saucer are doubled).

Complete the in line targets and shoot through lane to start timed superbumpers mode, which awards 1000 points per bumper hit.

scorpion,

 

for people who don't have b2s, in the backdrop there are a series of message boxes- drag those back on to the play field and you will get updates from there.

This is a pretty good layout, the only thing I would suggest is that either the rubber stopper or the gate at the top left is surplus to requirements and can be eliminated. Since you have the opening from the bumper area into the right spinner channel, my choice would be to remove the gate and occasionally let the ball roll down the left spinner channel to match.

scorpion,

 

for people who don't have b2s, in the backdrop there are a series of message boxes- drag those back on to the play field and you will get updates from there.

I think you know how to make visible and invisible the TextBox, otherwise this is what you need.

 
On top of scripts add this

If Table1.ShowDT = True Then
Score1.Visible = 1
Score2.Visible = 1
Score3.Visible = 1
Score4.Visible = 1
Else
Score1.Visible = 0
Score2.Visible = 0
Score3.Visible = 0
Score4.Visible = 0
End If

Now the TextBox are visible in Desktop mode and invisible in full screen mode.

thanks for the suggestions, guys- please let me know if you see any further issues or feedback. I plan to throw together an update and will improve some features (automated transition to desktop,etc.) after anomalies are identified (especially as vp10 is still in the beta stage).

Is your screenres.txt file not setup correctly?

hello,

*******The bottom half of the screen text Editor file is for the size and location of a DMD image when you have a 3 screen set-up...****

-

The games that actually have a DMD you have to right click the DMD then you can change the size and move it where you want it

 

Make sure you BG and your table names match

 

Do You have the B2s server installed and running?

 

In the Table Script

To start the back glass with Older Games including early VPX and VP9

Some games you have to change this line in the Script

Set Controller = CreateObject("VPinMAME.Controller")   Change to ---> Set Controller = CreateObject("B2S.Server")

 

Some games you use F6 set the B2S.Server

 

And some games you change this to 3,or 4

Const cController = 0        '0=Use value defined in cController.txt, 1=VPinMAME, 2=UVP server, 3=B2S server, 4=B2S with DOF (disable VP mech sounds)

 

Other Older games - Use a file in the User folder - Create the file if needed, The name of the file should be in the table Script...
Navigate to your Visual Pinball\User folder and create a Text document, Could Be one of these. (Sometimes if you run the game 1st it will create the file but you still have to edit it)

LMEMDOFTables.txt  -  cController.txt  -  LMEMTables.txt

 

In this file place a single number:
0 - No controller (no b2s, technically not needed)
1 - B2S - this will be most common
2 - B2S with mechanical sounds disabled! This is for those buggers with all the fancy contactors and solenoids

Can you take a pic of a working table versus one that is not working and post it here? I am having problems understanding the issue.

Hello,

I have the screens, but cannot send in topic, why?

I try to explain....when I load a table with backglass under B2S server, I have two different screens, one for the table and other with backglass...for me it is impossible to have TOGETHER pinball and backglass in the screen when I play a game...this is the problem.


I use desktop tables, not cabinet....

B2s are for two or three monitor systems, do you have at least two monitors? If you only have one then you cannot use db2s. If you have two monitors then the problem is with how your screenres txt file is set up

This was not always the case nor should it be...the newer db2s does in fact work only it always renders behind the VP table render and though I have tried to contact the author about this, no reply and it seems to be no longer in development, I'm certain this would actually be a simple fix with an update.
