    This is a conversion of MJR's VP9 Aladdin's Castle to VPX.  I thought I'd tackle an EM for a change as I wanted to try a table without a ROM and also because this game has a special place in my nostalgic past.    This was the first pinball machine I ever played at the ripe old age of 7 years old :) - It was located in a shop directly across from the house I grew up in so I spent many a night feeding coins into it.

    I spent a bit of time on the desktop mode and even threw some animations in there. Probably went over the top a bit but this was a great learning experience for me so I kept going.   There are some graphics features that are specific to desktop mode and these can be found at the start of the script.   The included B2S was the one originally created by MJR for the VP9 version and is included in the archive.

    Have Fun - Dozer.

    Hey there, yes, the image above is a 1080p screen grab from the table.  Even on a 1080p monitor  the apron instruction text isn’t great so it’s going to look worse on a 4K monitor. Unfortunately resources for this table are pretty light on so I had to deal with what I had.   There are probably better instruction cards around that could be included or at least created that would help.   We’re in a bit of a transition period at the moment between display resolutions but because I’ve not moved to 4K yet, I’m kind of stuck in low def world and I’m always particularly lazy with instruction cards as I see them as more of a dressing on a 1080p monitor.

    I was aware when I download a dozer table, it’s gonna be great. And so it is, it looks great and especially plays great!
    I like the table speed, the weak trafo, and the great idea to put the highscore postit on the DMD overlay graphik :good:
    Thanks for sharing

    Hey Man, thanks for the kind words – the high score graphic on the DirectB2S is the work of MJR – he’s a very good programmer, I’m a spaghetti coder :)

    I’m yet to play this but of course I want to thank you for your hard work and also sharing the story behind it. It kind of gives a special feel to it knowing. I can’t remember which table was my first, but from time to time I see YT videos and I get the warm feeling of recognition.  :rose:

    Thanks Dozer, great table!

    I worked in a little arcade as one of my first jobs, it was actually called Aladdins Castle, and the first pinball I ever unstuck coins in, probably snuck a few free games for mates, cleaned and played was also Aladdins Castle :)

    :heart:

     

    Cheers,

    al.

    Thanks Dozer, beautyful table. Love the lighting and physics and the sound at the U-turn is great!

    I saw, that many mech sounds are rooted to the backglass, which wasn’t intended, I think?

    Something else, I like playing this table, but I never got the purpose of those damn tandem double flippers… other than making the player totally dizzy, because he MUST NOT stop the ball as he usually does a lot :wacko:

    Nice catch – I forgot the check the good old sound manager for sound positioning – that’s where it placed them when the table was imported.  I’ll release an update shortly that moves them to the correct position.

    Yeah those double flippers are a real bastard – I reckon they put them there to increase drains.   Your natural reaction is to try to cradle (or at least catch) a ball there and it often goes straight through the middle of both flippers :)

    If you have problems with the right flippers. It simply means you haven’t played Paragon enough – I surely have. B-)

    Happy to hear that a ssf update is coming to this table because it is a great release. Thanks Dozer.

    1.01 has been uploaded – I kept some of the stuff that would be found in an EM backbox set to that area but the rest of the sounds have been moved to the table section.

    Thanks for very nice table Dozer :good:  One question, I don’t see a hi-score post it on the backglass that is mentioned a few posts above, is it only for desktop, I have a 2 Monitor cab.
