    A conversion of the Rosve VP9 or VP921? version of Captain Fantastic to VPX

    This table was authored in the 10.5 beta cycle so use the latest beta available - (Not sure if it works well with 10.4).

    This game started as a quick conversion but ended up needing a fair amount of work to the script to mirror what I think are pretty accurate

    rules.  There are some table options at the top of the script that control some visual parameters including the dimming of GI when flippers are

    pressed, a loose plastic on the left slingshot and a flickering light under the right plastic.  A 3 or 5 ball game can also be set via the script in the

    same area.

    Use the left magnasave button to expand the game instructions via an animated fly out.

    Many thanks to STAT for writing a new scoring routine in the VP9 version which cut down on some work and also to DJRob for helping

    me with the technique to split an integer into a string for the hi score reels on the cabinet view apron.

    This was the 2nd pinball machine I played when my local shop swapped out Aladdin's Castle and installed this in it's place.

    Have Fun - Dozer.

    Fixed credit up problem for cabinets that don't use the 5 key for coin entry. Reduced ambient light RGB to 0,0,0 to increase contrast.

    If you're happy with 1.1 and can credit up there is no need to update to this version.

      This looks great! I’d say fantastic with that bulb issue on sling! Thank you for this one :good:

      Currently playing around with FP to VP conversions. Nothing serious just trying to have fun.

      Excellent. Thank you once again Dozer ! I just wonder if you will continue on your current streak. First table played, second … Wouldn’t that be nice – you releasing all tables you’ve played to date ? :yahoo:   :whistle:   (j/k)

      I’ve never played this tables. Have seen mentioned and photographed quite a lot and it looks like a fun game to play. Double flippers is something I feel confident to play, until I prove myself wrong  B-)

      “From the end of the world to your town,” thanks Dozer!  I spent way too much time listening to that album when it first came out in ’75.

      :) – I would love to go along the time line and do them all if time allowed.  I think from memory the next one they installed after this was Playboy (Bally) and then Kiss (Bally).  There are nice versions of those games already but I remember they also had a “Harlem Globetrotters” which I don’t think there is a VPX version of yet so maybe that one next.

      Please grab 1.1 update – fixes flippers dropping when held during a tilt or game over event.

      Important if you’re using DOF.

      Only 3 games in. But, wanted to come back to tell you that I really like the work you’ve done Dozer. There are more than a few EMs where I feel the bounce isn’t strong enough. I haven’t played this in real life so I don’t know and I will look it up. But, first impressions is that I will not change anything in that area. I also want to say. Your SSF is excellent !

      Thanks for this nice table …  :rose:

      Got some more blackness / contrast with setting the three “lightning / ambient” settings from 25 to 0. :mail:

      Instant love. The look, the lighting, the physics, the pov. Everything is spot on. :yes:

      And in my opinion one of the most beautiful artwork in a pinball table ever.

      @kds70 good catch, looks even better now.

      Edit2: for anybody with a cab and the coin in button didn’t work (like me) change line 235

      from:
      If keycode = 6

      to:
      If keycode = AddCreditKey

      Guys I can’t seem to find a link to the backglass B2S file for this table. Does anyone have a link to it?

      Many thanks :)

      Need a little help here.  Love your table.  Great jog!  On my pinball cabinet I don’t have magnasave buttons just the left and right flippers. Maybe next cabinet.  So how can I stop the instruction card coming up every time I hit the left flipper button.  Will go away when I hit it again only to come back when I hit the left flipper button again. Any help here would be much appreciated.  I’m learning only been at this for a year. Thanks.
