    This is a light fix-up of randr's Humpty Dumpty backglass image. Just subtle changes, mostly reducing the glare in the logo with some reconstruction, light contrast adjustment and spot touch-ups. I just wanted to lightly clean it up without taking away the aged, vintage look.  I have literally done 1/100th or less of the work than the original backglass by randr, so of course all credit goes to him.  I'm uploading this version at his request.

     

    1.1:  Initial image clean-up

    1.2:  Lighting changes based on authentic video.  Need to do:  Falling Humpty.

    1.3:  Additional image/logo cleanup.

    2.0:  Complete re-work!  I was not involved in this re-work... it was done by STAT, Hauntfreaks, randr, and HuDu.  This version has a new background, and includes falling Humpty Dumpty!  Possibility of authentic Humpty images coming in the future.

    3.0: Update by STAT... this update is based on actual photos he took of a real backglass from a machine at Pindigi in Austria, and has the authentic images of Humpty as he is falling!

      I think that is the image I cleaned up with a different logo layered in… if you guys want I could layer that logo into my cleaned up image.

      Thanks, HF.  Do you have the 2012×2144 image?

      Thanks… that screenshot is your original.  Here’s a screen with the changes in image, logo reconstruction and lighting.  Lighting should now match the authentic glass except for the knight’s face at the top.  I left that on because I thought it looked good.  The original is not lit.  The dark area in the middle down to the carpet is where Humpty would be falling.  This screenshot from BG designer is too brightly lit… the actual DB2S looks better, imo.

      I think each stage of him falling is slightly different.  It would be great if we could get clear shots of each stage, or especially of the last stage where he breaks.

      So we all now have, thanks to randr and everyone involved in this project, a working, historical 1947 table in VPX… the first to feature flippers… complete with an animated backglass.  That is pretty amazing!

      Chances are, most of us will never even see this table… but we can play it and see what it would have been like to play a pinball game in an old diner or saloon in post WWII days.
