Hi guys and gals,
Being a bit slow to dip my toe in the VPX pool, I've amassed a lot of VP8 and VP9 tables. But eventually I found that my PC could handle VPX after all (A bit light on in processing power, but it still chugs along). A few weeks ago I inadvertently assigned VpinballX.exe instead of Vpinball.exe to a VP8 table in the front end program. I was surprised that the table not only loaded, but with a few quick mods to kickers and flippers and related script, I could actually play the table!
However, there were some obvious changes that need to be made. For instance, much of the table is a washed out pink in colour where no image is assigned. I have a feeling that, as well as other visual issues, might need materials imported and assigned to effect a fix. Also the bumpers didn't work. And obviously the script would need an overhaul.
The question is, is it worth doing? Obviously the target tables would be ones that haven't been released in VP9 or VPX yet. I know Duglis is keen for someone to overhaul many of his VP8 efforts.
Even if I could upgrade the images, there's a lot that seems to require much work for one person. Or am I scaring myself out of a something worthwhile attempting?
