    Stranger Things: Stranger Edition, a full rebuild / reimagining of my original from last year.  It's pretty much not even the same game anymore. I'm kinda exhausted soo I'll write more in the future but for now, go get to playing and stop wasting your time reading this.

    MUST READ INSTALLATION NOTES OR THIS WON'T WORK

    Credits / Thank You's

    • My Wife for her amazing voice over work (yes that is her pitch shifted up to sound like a teen) on the game and her patience with me while i was working on this table for far too many hours. And also for giving us a beautiful baby boy =).
    • Nailbuster for the amazing pinup player and his endless patience working with me to add features and additions to make all this come together.
    • The VPX team, without this amazing platform none of this would be possible.
    • TerryRed for all his work on the DOF and MXleds, the complexity of this work and his dedication is  inspiring.
    • TomTower for his guidance and the amazing Demogorgon animation - seriously amazing.
    • Ninuzzu for his help on the Demogorgon extension rod and al blinking wall lights scripting.
    • DJRobx for the amazing SSF work, making the clunks and thuds sound unbelievably realistic.
    • JPsalas for his guidance getting me started coding pinball tables he is the godfather.
    • Peter, Jens and Clint for their endless bug checking and help dialing this game in.
    • Flupper for his tutorials on clear plastic ramps and his awesome dome scripts which i used heavily.
    • lauminet for the awesome demogorgon model
    • Jrsprad & Stat for their help on version 1 of the table.

    This is important.

    1. Install Pinup - http://vpinball.com/VPBdownloads/pinup-system-player-and-popper-front-end-install/
    2. Configure the backglass on pinup settings to cover your entire backglass.
    3. Then download my media pack at this link (it's 2.4gb) so it might take a bit. Promis it's worth it. https://nofile.io/f/mgpPzv6qEQ7/STLE-1.1.zip pass - friendsdontlie (new link - includes the topper)
    4.  Place the "STLE" folder from step 4 into your PUPVideos folder created by the pinup install.
    5. Open the table file and check the config options at the top of the file (to get to this hit "Script" in the left hand bar of the vpx editor). If you have a dmd then turn on the ultradmd setting. If you have a topper then turn on the topper setting. Also you can adjust the various volume settings.
    6. If your topper only plays for a few seconds then stops, then make sure your topper is set to "always on" in your pinup player configuration.
    7. Start that badboy up and Play!!!!

    Changes for 1.4 1. ultradmd issues for other countries fix 2. upside down gate fix 3. barb multi from mystery fix 4. Callouts volume setting 5. Video volume setting

    Changes for 1.3

    AV club dugout was screwing with balls on the table went back to not destroying balls.

    Changes for 1.2 thanks for working with me Ryan H to finally figure out the deal with auto plunge.

    Changes for 1.1

    BIGGEST CHANGE - TerryRed's amazing dof & MX led work. Seriously if it can be activated it will. Hell if my kegerator was hooked up he'd probably have programmed it to pour me a beer. You lucky people with badass dof get ready to live.

    1. Mystery reward on badmen lock 2 and start needs adjusted - fixed

    2 settings volume adjust - done

    3 empty character in high scores option - added

    4. high score sub line not being cleared - fixed

    5. Script error line 3773 in 10.5 beta when coin button pushed - coin button call taken out

    6. Add Brian's color grade and environment settings - added

    7. if music paused and callout comes I believe it unpauses it. Try to get a tilt warning in the upside down. - fixed upped video priority

    8. clear timer entry when it runs out or on game end/ball end - fixed

    10. bad men lights re lighting after should be cleared on new ball. - fixed

    11. for your next update, there is a small typo in one of the instruction text: “signla”. -fixed

    12. Added support for ultradmd commas in scores

    13. look at end of ball videos dropping then raising volume before next ball starts (i don't know exact but a few times i got 1-2 second blast of bg music on drain) - fixed

    14. av kicker drop below table dugout - added

    15. AutoPlunge reworked to be more universal.

      I agree with Mark70, this is a whole new level for originals. Once you get it working correctly it will blow you away! Beautifully executed in every way from table design, rules, playability, physics, graphics, media quality and integration, artwork, colors, sound effects and music, just BRILLIANT. Hats off and many thanks to Scottywic and all contributors for job incredibly well done!

      To be clear, will 1.4 no longer work with previous configurations? i.e. If you want to play 1.4 you need to install PinUP system?

      Nope it will work just fine.  :good:

      This is my first attempt at PUP or anything related to it.  So i’ll apologize in advance for ignorance, you can scold if you wish, but I’m just looking to get this running.

      I have the original version of this game working with the DMD and sound.

      So far with this version, I followed the installation instructions to a T.  I can technically play it, but I have table sounds but no music, no videos, and the backglass appears upon launch but then disappears intermittently while there is text (hints, score, etc…) but no picture.

      The DMD is only the walkie-talkie and score, nothing else, not sure if it is supposed to be like that or not.

      Updated to 10.5 beta as directed earlier in this thread, no change.  The directions say to put the STLE folder into the PUPvideos folder that is created, i’ve done that, but maybe that folder is not in the right place?  Should it be in my VpinMame folder?

      Any and all help or guidance is appreciated.

      If you have just installed the new pinup popper system then this folder will be in

      C / Pinupsystem / PUPVideos
      you’ll drop the STLE folder in there. The issues you’re having are just related to the media not being found so it’s just in the wrong place.

      On the DMD, yes the ultradmd is now just a scoring dmd and not necessary as all of the scoring and videos actually happens on the main backglass now. But i coded it in for people that have 3rd screens or actual dmds and didn’t want to leave it empty.

      Hey

      So I finally managed to get the videos onto my cabinet, and the tables amazing! Everything is really working well together.

      For info, i’m still on VPX 10.4 and I had PinUP player installed before this new Pinup and Popper installer, i’ve upgraded Pinup Player to the “latest” for the standalone before venturing into switching it out for the new Pinpup system.

      I am seeing one issue though on my cabinet and don’t know if anyone else is seeing the same. The text that displays in the center of the Backglass is only ever on 1 line with multiple lines rendering over the top of each other (for example, the Launch Ball text is over the top of …i think…’Ball 2′ or something like that).

      Any ideas? Is this a bug fixed in the new Pinup system?

      Hmm that would be due to needing pinup 1.3 I used to serve the beta along with this. If you install the pinup system you don’t have to use the popper. I would just install that and then you can keep with pbx or whatever youre on. Note when you install pinup system then you’ll most likely need to move the videos to the new folder it creates.

      Also if you’re just like… meh, that’s fine. Here is the 1.3 beta files for pinup. Drop these in your pinup folder (after unzipping) and replace the files in there that have the same names.  – https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YfSdK7ddV09PYDoZ8XggMx2aW_dTBv1H/view?usp=sharing

      Cheers Scottywic. The 1.3 beta fixed it and the text no longer overlaps at all!

      I’m sticking with this for now as I’m gonna put some time aside in the future to switch over to the new Pinup System

      I’ve done everything I know how to do here.  Installed into my existing VP folder, created new ones, any and everything, and i just can’t get this thing to work.  Doesn’t seem to find that STLE file no matter where I put it.

      I cant get this working on my cab! lmao how shameful is that.

      I can play but cannot get music or videos…I put the stle in the proper pack folder unzipped…what am I missing? the frontend does work fine so assumed this would just work

      Very impressive.  I was skeptical of the PUP table but it really does add the whole experience.

      I have everything running but my PinDMDV3.     This is my first attempt at using UltraDMD. so I am very fuzzy on how it functions.    I am getting the UltraDMD vitual dmd displaying in game but assumed it would use DMDDevice.dll to display on the PinDMDV3?   Should a real DMD work or is this a  virtual dmd only table?

      I edited the table script and set UltraDMD to 1 to enable the DMD.

      I have DMDExt installed in the VpinMame and everything is working fine with regular VPX tables with B2S.,  I also have my PINDMDV3 working properly with FX3 and Pinball Arcade tables using DMDEXT

      I tried renaming pindmd.dll to pindmd.dll.old and the copied the newer dmddevice.ini and dmddevice.dll to the Virtual Pinball\XDMD directory.  That apparently wasn’t the issue as  UltraDMD no longer starts so I removed and renamed pindmd.dll back and it works again.

      Thanks and great work!!

      I put STLE media folder in one to deep directory structure.

      should be like this

      C:\PinUPSystem\PUPVideos\STLE

      I had it like this

      C:\PinUPSystem\PUPVideos\STLE\STLE

      stupid mistake

      I figred out the issue with UltraDMD displaying on a PinDMD3.      I needed to replace the XDMD.DLL and XDMDNative.DLL that were located in the XDMD directory with the ones from Lucky’s SAM build.   You also need to copy his specific DMDDevice.Dll to the XDMD directory.

      Now to download more PUP tables and packs!   :good:

      Normally I just kinda lurk here but I wanted to post and say thank you for the awesome table!

      Everything is running great but I do have a question that is caused by a quirk of my cab and not your work. Due to clipping issues in certain tables, I turned my amp way up and I lower the volume in tables so that everything is at a decent level with no clipping or crackling audio from some roms. Sadly this has meant that I can’t play most original tables (without going deaf or busting out the ol’ keyboard to adjust system volume) like the earlier version of this or Diablo since the audio is coming from video files and I haven’t found a way to adjust all that.

       

      I saw that you added volume adjustments in your script and I messed around with them but they made no difference. Even turning them to zero had no effect. Is there something that I’m messing up or some sort of solution for adjusting everything?

      Hmm. That’s odd you must have some kinda override then cause those script settings change it all. Maybe it’s ai pinup setting?

      Just to piggyback my earlier frustration…it is now working, and was not working earlier due to having VLC3.0…

      Used a link i found here to go back to an older version, works like a champ.  Such an awesome upgrade, i’m glad i was able to get it going.

      Thank you!
