Ripley's Believe It or Not VP9Version:
VPinMAME 9.x RecreationsAuthor(s): jpsalasDescription:
Based on the Stern table from 2004
Just in time for Halloween here it is a complete redone of my VP8
table. Nearly everything is new, only playfield and plastics graphics are the same, but he lights are new. I have used some new posts inspired on the pictures plublished by Eala Dubh Sidhe and Lord Hiryu. They are so small so it doesn't matter that much if they aren't so detailed.
It is angle independent, so it will be easy for you to change the view, reotate it, remove the DMD
I should like to thank Leo for the backdrop, destruk and Steve for the music and sound subs.
The table uses samples (which I forgot when I started this table so I had to extract them from the rom, I know I could have ask destruk for the samples, but "why to do it the easy way when you can make it complicated?"
As I was saying: the table uses sample for the rom sounds. This means that all sounds are played by VP
and they are not emulated, increasing the speed of the table, and this is good for older computers. I tried the table without the samples and it worked fine with my computer, pero the sound where more distorted. So I opted to use samples. This has two bad things: you cannot change the volume of the ROM and if you change the ROM the spoken language will still be in English, due to the samples. The good thing: the clarity of the sounds and the increase speed of the table. Multiball runs at full speed!
I tried to keep the table as simple as posible so the view of the playfield is as clear as posible. I tried using transparent ramps, but they didn't look very good. So I used the old style with a normal picture. The result is that the table looks just as good with HR ON as with HR OFF.
I'll see by overwriteiing my old 1.0 version i guess.VP9
is a PITA.Submitted by jpsalas, on Oct 31 2009, 10:18 AM
