  • Here is an original table about the German Heavy Metal band "ACCEPT" (you'll find all the files in the download, Table, B2S Backglass, Rules and Backdrops)

    Runs with VP 10.6 last version !

    I used the table "ALGAR" from Thalamus and Kalavera and Kalavera's B2S Backglass as a starting point,  so, big thanks to them for their permission to use their work

    So, you need to use the ROM "algar_l1" to run this table

    I changed the location of every element and added wire ramps, but the rules remain almost the same

    BALLS TO THE WALL replaces THE CHAMBER

    RUSSIAN ROULETTE replaces RIVER STYX, but, each time, you have to reach the LEFT hole first, and then the RIGHT hole without the ball hitting any other element of the table to score the 2X value

    METAL HEART replaces Extra-ball

    Here are the new rules (you also can find them with the table file, and in Table / Table Info, and, of course, on the apron) :

    Making 1-2-3-4 Advances X Value from 2X - 5X.

    Making Either Bank of 3 Drop Targets Lites RUSSIAN and ROULETTE Loops Shoots To Score 2X Value of Loop Shoot.

    Making Six Flashing Drop Targets Awards 10,000 to 100,000 Value.

    Making Six Flashing Drop Targets When 100,000 Lamp is Lit, Lites Top Eject for Possible - METAL HEART

    RUSSIAN and ROULETTE Loops Shoots Increase in Value from 10,000 - 60,000. At 60,000 RUSSIAN and ROULETTE Loops Shoots Lite Outlanes Which Alternate for Possible SPECIAL.

    Driving Captive Balls Against BALLS TO THE WALL Targets Scores Highest Flashing Values and Lights Ball Shooter Lanes to Score 50,000 and to Release Balls in BALLS TO THE WALL Lanes.

    Special thanks to :

    Thalamus for setting sounds in the script, adding sounds and testing the table

    JP Salas for testing the table and "cleaning" the script, and for his method to have flashers looking like flames from his table "DIABLO"

    Xenonph for testing the table, and some of his comments

    Flupper1 for his flashers templates

    Kiwi for his "always" appropriate replies to my questions in topics, and also to many others for their availability and help !

    Retro BASH for the primitive ramp (at the top of the table) I found in their Future Pinball table IRON MAIDEN

    Zanny for his primitive Spotlights (below the ramp at the top of the table)

    Please tell me if I forgot someone !

    And, of course, enormous thanks to VPX and VPinMAME developers ! :love39:

    Very special thanks to the band ACCEPT for their so "German" Heavy Metal (in the 80's, they seemed to come from another planet !)

    and to all the fans who encouraged me when doing this table !

    Sript options :

    If you want to change sounds volumes, it's from lines 15 to 32 in the script

    The artwork of this table is based on the five albums "Breaker", "Restless & Wild", "Balls to the Wall", "Metal Heart" and "Russian Roulette"

    The band is : Udo Dirkschneider (vocals), Wolf Hoffmann (guitar), Peter Baltes (bass guitar), Stefan Kaufmann (Drums), Jörg Fischer (guitar), and Hermann Frank (guitar) - sometimes

    Hope Accept fans will like this table (they will find no other ! :) ), and perhaps those who didn't know this band and don't listen to this kind of music too !

    Let there be (German) Heavy Metal !

    1.1: Removed mp3 files and decreased lighting intensity at the top of playfield

    If you want to listen to music when playing this table, just import your own mp3 files into your VPinball / Music folder

    Name them as follows: Accept_01, Accept_02, and so on, and then, open the script and uncomment lines from 82 to 115

    There are 24 lines for songs in the script, but you can remove some of them or add new ones, so don't forget to change quantity, Line 110 [musicNum = (musicNum + 1) mod XX]

      At last I found it. I set the bg of Algar to small a while ago and have a black B2s-wallpaper in the tablefolder. And at every start of the table this black picture lay in front of the bg. :wacko:
      Normaly it was behind the bg. After I disable small in the bg, everything is OK; even with Algar. :whistle:

      Ah :good:   Now, we should get @batch to change the table so that the nvram uses offset – proposed by @xenonph

      Joey, glad to see everything’s ok for you now

      Thalamus, what does “change the table so that the nvram uses offset” means exactly ?

      It’s basically an instruction to PinMAME to create a new memory “chip” for the ROM file when this table calls the routine.

      “NVOffset(2)” dropped into the Table_Init, before the Controller, should do it.

      If I understand, as two different tables (Algar and Accept) use the same rom, to separate nvram files

      I have to drop ““NVOffset(Accept)”  into the Table_Init, before the Controller in the script

      No, NVOffset(2). JPSalas made his ARFM with AFM rom – I don’t know why he put in 3 there, not important I guess as long as it is there. Xenonph made a lot of NFL tables using the same technique. The copy I’ve got has 27. Look at https://github.com/sverrewl/vpxtable_scripts/blob/master/ARFM_1.2.0.vbs#L94 if your still not sure how to do this. Maybe we should poke @3rdaxis for his AI version of firepower. I’m sure there are other table mods as well that could benefit from this.

      So, all I’ve to do is add “NVOffset(2)” to the script, like below, and the two tables will work with the same nvram file  ?

      Sub Table1_Init()
      vpmInit Me
      With Controller
      .GameName = cGameName
      If Err Then MsgBox”Can’t start Game”&cGameName&vbNewLine&Err.Description:Exit Sub
      .SplashInfoLine = “ACCEPT (Germany) Let there be Heavy Metal”
      .HandleMechanics=0
      .HandleKeyboard=0
      .ShowDMDOnly=1
      .ShowFrame=0
      .ShowTitle=0
      .Hidden=1
      .Games(cGameName).Settings.Value(“sound”)=0
      NVOffset(2)
      On Error Resume Next
      .Run GetPlayerHwnd
      If Err Then MsgBox Err.Description
      End With

      Should work, yes. Just try – reset nvram and play both. Only way I can get people to play Algar it seems ;)

      It doesn’t work, if your score is higher than 1.000.000 with table Accept, it’s the same with table Algar

      And I imagine the opposite is the same, but I’m not able to do it with table Algar !

      Perhaps I found a solution, I did the following and it generated two different nvram files,

      “algar_l1 v1.nv” and  “algar_l1 v2” and then I got separate scores

      but, at first, I had to get a score higher than 1.000.000 on my table Accept

      Can you try that and tell me ?

      Algar script

      Sub Table1_Init()
      vpmInit Me
      With Controller
      .GameName = cGameName
      NVOffset (2)

      Accept script

      Sub Table1_Init()
      vpmInit Me
      With Controller
      .GameName = cGameName
      NVOffset (3)

      Hi Guys, I really like Accept so thanks a lot for this table. But I do not seem to be able to start the table. The table starts, no sound and i cannot start a game. I am using 10.6 and have copied the sound files to the music folder. Any ideas ?

      1-Do you also use the last VPinMAME_32_beta ?

      2-This table works with the rom “algar_l1”, so, they have the same nvram file

      You can try to delete it and it will reset the table, then you’ll have to press the “f3” key after you open the table

      (please note that it will erase your “Algar” highscore)

      Hi Batch, thanks for you reply. Well I thought I had the latest, but apparantly not. I checked the Beta thread on vpuniverse for the latest version, and will try again. Would be nice to pin the latest version at the top of the thread.

      Energumeno, you’ve been lucky, and the small plastic piece is a “plectrum”

      I saw them on the “Restless & Wild” tour

       

      Jack, I’m afraid I don’t understand what you mean by “is already pinned”

      This is fantastic! Not only am I a long-time ACCEPT fan, but I am also very close friends with Wolf and Gaby Hoffmann. I just sent them a short video of me playing the table so they could enjoy it as well.  To show that I’m not just blowing smoke, I’ll attach a pic of something they gave me in 2005. I think you’ll recognize it. :)

      Fantastic work on the table! It combines two of my all-time favorite things! Have a great week!

      Thanks a lot, WinslowLeach, and very nice collectible (you’re a lucky man)

      Do you know how many have been made ?

      Hope Wolf Hoffmann like it, it would be a great honour for me !

      Their first album I listened to was Restless & Wild and I saw them in Paris on this tour

      This band really changed my life, and it’s a shame they are not at least as famous than Scorpions

      Hi Batch,

      That’s not actually a collectible. They gave me THE Metal Heart. That is the model that was fabricated in Germany and appears on the album cover itself. It’s not a duplicate or anything. I had always told them that it was my dream to some day touch the actual Metal Heart. So, needless to say, I freaked out when they brought it back from Germany and actually gave it to me! I returned it to them in 2009 for good luck when I introduced them to producer Andy Sneap (a friend and also a huge Accept fan). Here’s a pic I took at that get together.

      I was turned on to Accept in 1980 when I was 15. It was the Breaker album and I was hooked immediately. I was a drummer in a metal band here in the Tampa Bay, Florida area back in the day and I’ll never forget when Restless and Wild came out. I wore that album out! It was a great time for metal in this area. I remember watching Savatage (then Avatar) playing “Fast as a Shark” in a small, local club when I was 17. My own band, Siren, played so many Accept songs that we could have been a tribute band! :)

      Speaking of my old band, we unexpectedly reunited a couple of years ago when we were asked to play a festival in Germany. We did the festival and it was amazing. We just finished a new album since we’re having so much fun. Here is a link to the first song that we just released if you want to hear how the Accept influence is still strong with me!
