Joust (Williams 1983)
See the 'Project' here:
Only someone crazy and weird enough to do tables like Hercules and Mad Scientist would be willing to team up with me to create this historic freak beast of an early 80's specialty pinball. Luckily that crazy weirdo mad scientist is Randr and he's a good friend of mine so together we made this happen and made it as legit as possible despite facing many hurdles.
Special thanks for Unclewilly for help with lighting and the primitive inserts as well as a special thanks to Borgdog for the in game menu system! Also thanks to ICPjuggla for some inserts.
Another special thanks necessary for Frenitcamnesic for help with some bug fixing.
The resources for this table are all pretty terrible so I basically redrew EVERYTHING. This even includes all the text which was done by hand since there was no font that's an exact match.
Aprons: I've seen pics with a variety of combinations of either both black, or blue and black with either player 1 or 2 being the blue side. So if you look at the top of the script you can choose what color you want for either P1 or P2's apron.
Needless to say just about everything on the table is a 3D modelled element. Everything had to be positioned in 3D so that it would match the PF angles. The game isn't absolutely perfect due to the lack of resources especially but we did our best to bring you the ONLY head to head pinball experience!
To give the table more playability and a potential wider audience players have several different game modes to choose from:
1. Single player (player controls both sets of flippers)
2. Player vs CPU(easy) (Auto-flippers)
3. Player vs CPU(hard) (Auto-flippers)
4. Player vs Player*
*Second player controls are mapped to magna save by default. You can hook up a controller to your cab or desktop and set the magna save keys to what ever you like in the VP preferences->keys.
Some different backdrop settings for FS are available.
1. Single Player FS view (has depth that favours single player
2. 2 Player FS view (is a birds eye view with even view for both players, flat).
