For a while I've been thinking its ridiculous that you can't do proper flipper skills in VPX(the little ball taps, post passes etc) as they've done so much to make it a simulation and then something as fundamental as operating the flippers seems totally wrong. Anyway, I finally got round to looking it up on the forums and it seems solutions were provided for this years ago but don't seem to have been implemented into the core code.

Dunno if anyone is interested in implementing this into our weekly games? I'm wary of fiddling with any default settings as you want it to be a level field for everyone but here's the code thread and where I've added it to White Water, I think it makes quite a difference.

@OmizzayThat VR version of White water doesn’t work for me, just get a blank view? I definitely haven’t had proper flipper control on any table though until trying that script stuff.

 

Any scoring tips for this table? It’s one of those ones where I enjoy the shots but I find myself not really sure what I’m supposed to be doing and keep doing the same things over and again with small scores going up incrementally.

Hope does it feel on the switch?

With a flip grip and the controller extensions, it feels pretty decent.  But I just find Pinball FX way easier and not as authentic as VPX in general.  Still, better than nothing.

I'll send you the table I have when I'm back.

I activated Whirpool near the end and missed the Jackpot shot 5 times in a row, that shot is so tough under pressure and I keep accidentally letting my other balls drain to concentrate on it.

Definitely in a groove with this table now, didn’t even do half the rafts and whirlpool modes but scored the hell out of whirlpool challenge and 5x playfield with multiball. That Spine Chiller ramp is still a nightmare for me though.

 

Probably time to move onto something else.
 

I might go back to Getaway.

Ask and ye shall receive :D

 

There's a guy on VPU updating a bunch of old tables and adding nFozzy physics, LUT settings, Fleep sounds etc.  He's already released an updated version of JP's Deadpool, Family Guy, Gorgar and Fire and has a bunch more to release (after approval from initial authors). From the reviews the changes are pretty amazing.

Ooh nice, I went back to Getaway, noticed the flippers weren't giving you much control, figured that, plus I feel like I understand pinball much better now, would equal some sweet scoring. Nope, I don't even think I've broken 100million yet, so brutal.

 

Might be fun to do one of those linked tables for next week, Gorgar or Fire?

If you scroll up to the third post on this page you can see the info.

 

I’m still confused as to whether this is the same as the FastFlips or not, @Omizzayseems to have flipper control working properly as standard and I think there’s a better way to access it but for now that code above is doing the job great for me.

Stupidly moved on to Fish Tales, man that table is infuriating. Been working on the multiball jackpot technique, literally had a game where I got three multiballs in one ball and they all went so badly that my final score at game over was 5million.

Hmmm, thrid the script as above on AFM but something feels off. This is what I am running.

But not getting any of the subtle control I should have.

Do we need to unleash another big hitter table to get us all back on it? @Omizzay you back in the game this week?


 I’m away from Friday so would maybe let it roll on but Totan? Monster Bash? Spider-Man?

It's better than nothing I guess...I'll be putting a score up this week but it'll be with the Pinball FX asterisk.

Where did you get the vertical grip controller from ?

I'm back!!!  And definitely in for some pinball action.  Happy to be back on my cab.

 

Yes I suggest we go with some heavy hitters this week: TOTAN, Monster Bash and Spider-Man would be great.  Would also be happy with Indiana Jones, Twilight Zone or Addams Family as well - some of the most popular tables of all time and all them have great VPX recreations.  IJ would be my choice but you guys choose and I'm in. 

 

Also, will have to retake the lead on some of those older tables @Cheeko.  I see you've been busy. :)  Don't forget to try and beat my high score on the VPW Lord of the Rings table too - I think the score is in the other thread though.
