  • This was a group effort between Matt @Mlager8 and myself to bring you Bally's Party Animal.  This project may not have happened if not for Mlager8 stepping up and building a beautiful playfield from sketchy resources.  When he volunteered to do this, the project had been stalled for months, but when he stepped in it took right off.

    Matt took multiple resources and made an amazing playfield for the base of the table.  We were also very luck to get help from Brian Wright on pinside, soon to be here, with some great hi-res images of the plastics and back wall.  Matt made up all of the plastics, frog primitives, multiple attempts at the ramp primitives to get it perfect and the tedious work on the jukebox.  I think we redid the jukebox 3 times to get it actually working like the real one.  Great job!!!

    Other contributors that we should all give thanks too:

    @32Assassin, for getting the build going with converting the VP9 table to VPX, for all of his additional script work and helping me along the way to understand how to manipulate this stuff, thank you.

    @Thalamus, for all of his Surround Sound Feedback implementation and other sound support  which makes this table pop.  Thanks for all the numerous testing requests and for all of the help you have given me in my VPX journey.

    @Cyberpez, for taking all of Matt's jukebox renders and coming up with a code to make this thing actually work right.  The jukebox is the main item in table, thanks for bringing this all together for us.

    Last but not least, @Bord, for your support, knowledge and expertise along this build.  For all of his help with getting the lights correct, adding shadows to make the lights pop and for following along as this table came together.  Thank you for all of your help, sir.

    Gameplay:  This table uses magnasave buttons to cycle the pig and out lights on the left and right.  Click on the info tab in VPX for instructions on how to get into the service menu to change options like number of balls.

    Thanks to Brian Wright for some great hi-res images of the translate which @Wildman took and updated his backglass.  There was even an alternate Dad's Root Beer backglass, which I could only find one image of, that Wildman was able to recreate.  Thanks Wildman for all of your wonderful B2s support.

      A big pat on the back to you Tom and Matt. I did not expect this to come out as good as it has to be honest. :rose:

      I wish more Pinsiders where like Brian Wright. Thank you very much ! Recreation of these rare machines is important, and helping this community with resources is a sure way of making it available for anyone in years to come, for free !

      Thank you to the regular helpers you mentioned as well. I did not do much on this table. The guys had it all working from the very first beta I got.

      Oh man thanks for the kind words Tom, excited for our first release together! It was great to have you helming this project, I can put some of the art side together, but as for as actually building this table, putting every aspect together, making everything work cohesively, the hours of testing, lighting tweaking, refining, that’s all @armyaviation . Tom, I literally don’t think you slept all all during this build, great job man!

      Of course everyone else too, @bord @32assassin @thalamus and @cyberpez
      you guys were all super supportive and helped amazingly with this build, Thanks for making this one so fun!

      Excellent! Thanks to all for the work and effort! Had never heard of this game before the wip…….that’s what’s so great about VP. A chance to play tables that you may never be able to play or even experience. Kudos!!

      Thank you for the great WIP and now the release of this great table. I enjoyed following along with the WIP and really anticipated the release of the table along with many others it seems.
