    It's time to bring Pizza back to Pinball.

    Growing up the only places that had pinball were pizza joints and bowling alleys. I wasn't often at the bowling alleys (as you could still smoke in them at that point) so i played tons of pinball at pizza parlours.

    It always struck me as odd that there weren't any pinball tables about pizza when so many tables resided in pizza places. Plus pizza is awesome.

    The idea really started to grab me when I heard the local (Denver) band Pizza Time play their song "Pizza Time". First they are awesome, second it was the perfect link. A vision of a crusty pizza joint, pizza party took shape and I knew this table had to be made.

    Pinball Inspiration

    It's always important to me to build upon all that is great in pinball. It needs to be equal doses of innovation and homage as the rich history of pinball tables is something I find very worth building upon.

    In this cases the biggest inspiration was definitely Diner.

    PizzaTime coming to you with generous sponsorship from AtGames!

    Hey guys ScottyWic here, I wanted to take a minute to explain some really cool developments between myself (and my team) and AtGames.

    Earlier this year I was contacted by AtGames about their interest in supporting my efforts. I get a good number of requests to make tables for money and I've generally grown grouchy about these requests because this is my hobby and not a job. I make my tables because I love making things for people to play and love, that's the goal. So to be honest I wasn't even going to respond, but they piqued my interest saying "we want to help you get more tables out". And well as you guys know I am not able to make many tables, as they take an unbelievable amount of hours (many times 500+).

    We got to talking and it was evident right from the start that this was a different conversation. AtGames wanted to financially support bringing on others to help me finish my games AND allow me to still give them away to the VPX community. Wait, what? Yeah you heard me right. At this point I said, ok, now we're getting somewhere. What if I could release multiple games a year out to you guys, and not have it leaving me totally burnt out every time. This I was interested in.

    So we decided to give it a run and work to finish off my PizzaTime table which had been itching to be completed for years. It was at the point where I needed MANY hours to code out the rules completely and I was dreading it. Daphishbowl came alongside me with AtGames funding to code through the rules. As you all know, he is brilliant, and it went amazingly well.

    We now come to the community with the sponsored table, PizzaTime. A strange and silly table that comes out exactly as my vision had been (as strange as that vision might be). And I hope you love it like I do.

    On Community Negativity

    There has been a general negativity in the VPX community when it comes to anything involving money, and I definitely understand these feelings. What I hope to illustrate with this partnership is that there are really great individuals out there looking to help lift this community up for the good of everyone. I believe the digital pinball market is about to see a huge boom, and this is exciting for me as my tables will be played by more and more people everyday.

    I still hold that my dream is just to walk in and see kids hammering away on a game I made and I feel that's getting closer and closer to reality every day. But I hit the same road block, I can't spend 500 hours on a table by myself and make very many, I need help, and not like "I'll help a bit on the weekend" help, I need 40 hrs a week help.

    So I ask that you guys take some time to play PizzaTime and know that this table would most likely never have come out without the help from AtGames. They are truly great people that are trying their best to be as delicate and understanding to this community's feelings about financial investments as possible. And with this help I hope to be able to finish more tables with even greater quality than before and less strain on my personal and family life.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and for hopeful openness to this new exciting partnership opportunity for me and honestly for us all.

     

    • install vpx
    • install pinup player
    • add pinup folder from the download
    • (optional)add orbital scoreboard (osb.vbs version) instructions here https://app.archbee.io/doc/iWLeFb-kgHxMIwnwv7_8S/cBY7MwQz6xP3up2WHY9CH
    • open vpx file
    • adjust table script header to your liking
    • play & have fun

    TO all, I am monitoring all the feedback and issues on here and will be making updates to the items as needed.

    • Most issues are "script error osb..." = turn off the orbital scoreboard at the top of the script
    • Minigame losing focus (cab) = download a fresh vpx file
    • Minigame losing focus / flippers not working (desktop) = uncomment out line 5872 that says WshShell.AppActivate “PuPShooter”
    • DMD dislikes (size and such) = this was never something I coded around. This was designed as a 2 screen table and there's no need for that space. Feel free to do whatever you need there but it's not part of the design really. I might add to it but this is designed (as are all my tables) as a 2 screen JJP style table.
    • DOF not working = there were errors in the dof config that was done for this. they are being fixed and updated today supposedly
    • OSB score format errors = your system is in EU using . instead of , in the score. I will adjust to make this uniform in future versions.
    • OSB scores not posting = double check your file against someone else who's scores are posting i would guess there's a format error in your osb.vbs
    • Bonus score formatting weird = most likely you have stretched the pup. It is meant to be 1920 x 1080. If you have your screen fitting a tall monitor or off the normal hd ratio then you will find text format issues that i don't know if i can adjust for.
    • Micro stutters = if the slow computer mode doesn't fix then i'll add some future adjustments to this. most likely this happens as the ball circles the loop-de-loop.

      First off big congratulations scotty! Been following this as long as I’ve been playing VP and I cant wait to try it out. All of your tables have so much depth and playability is through the roof, I’m sure this one will live up to personality your “brand” has cultivated.

      I’m wondering if you can talk a little more about your partnership with AtGames. I see they manufacture their own machines, have a custom platform and even have some licensing. Are they being altruistic in wanting to sponsor you for the greater good of VP; The main train of thought being any interest in the hobby is in turn good for them as well?

      I see their platform has a BYOG feature with the ability to play your other games through their environment. Are there plans to pipe your releases or VPX in general (VPE in the future?) into their system through the said BYOG feature?

      Lastly, if you’re allowed to (or even want to), what other projects might be coming down the line from this fortuitous partnership?

      Reading this back I hope this is not coming off with any negative connotation, I’m enthused about anything that will raise the profile of VP!

      Scott and team:  Wow! The pup pack is glorious, love the lip sync Crusty. The music is also perfect, it’s going to be one of those that will stick in our heads so if we want to kill you later, don’t take it personal.  The voice acting is top notch, doubt it could be better, it really fits the game well.  Lot’s of variety as well.  great little animations  on so many objects, love the rotating pep pop bumpers, the slings, etc.  Congrats, looks like there are lot’s of modes. first game got what felt like a decent score 9.8m I think.  Second game less than 5 million but still felt good!

       

      I also get the black screen on the playfield until I alt tab it back.  I was wondering if maybe this might happen because some of us have exclusive full screen on but then I remembered I don’t think HArry Potter gave me any issues and it has a video mode.  I also got a ball stuck in the pizza box and couldn’t shoot balls up either ramp feeding into the pizza box as it would hit the ball and fall back down.  In saying that, when I lost the last ball of the multiball I was in, the game went into it’s ball search mode, visibly shook the table and the ball popped out and I could play again. Cool ball search mode!

       

      Great job!

      for those having focus issues on the minigame, just delete your vpx and redownload from here (it has a patch in it)
      or just comment out or delete line 5872 that says WshShell.AppActivate “PuPShooter”
