    Rambo Pinball mod of Raven. Raven started as a mod of Rascal's VPX conversion and the resources started to flow in so it got a complete facelift.  It all started with a set of new posts, targets, bumpers, plastics, etc.  Once the playfield was populated, Bord created an amazing new primitive ramp for the top left and the large clear one in the center.  Great job on the modeling.  The script needed an upgrade to match so Bord and 32Assassin came up with something to make the table all come together and act just like the real thing.  For the helicopter I added an Mi-24 Hind from the movie. Randr helped make some changes to the primitive, thanks!   Rambo also received new bumper caps, an updated playfield image, drop targets, and a new back wall image, oh as well as a few other toys...

    Special thanks to all that contributed (in order of completion):

    Rascal for getting this started with your VPX conversion

    Bord for all the primitives, work on the lights and script to get this playing like the real table.  For all the bells and whistles that make the table look great.  And lastly for putting up with me!

    32Assassin for all your work on the script and for all the advice along the way

    Randr for all your time testing and getting this looking and playing great.  Thanks for the help getting the helicopter exactly how it needs to be

    Arngrim for all you work updating the DOF

    Thalamus for all your help testing and improvements on the sounds and gameplay

    And lastly to all those that paved the way for this table with your work on previous versions like ICPJuggla, GTXJoe, Wildman, Dark, and others.  Hope I didn't leave anyone out.

    Lastly don't forget to update your DOF and enjoy!

    Dip switch updates

    Rom changed to Ravena (rocky mod), if you cant find it change rom name to raven

      I am unable to start a game in FS mode.  DT and FSS work just fine.

      I get script error:

      Line:156
      Machine ‘raven’ (raven) terminated before intialized, check the rom path or rom file!

      The playfield flashes on for a second then disappears.

      The rom has to be fine because the game plays in DT and FSS.

      Any ideas?

      Not sure why it would do that. Anyone else have any problems?

      Sounds kind of weird this one. Doesn’t sound like the regular force full screen problem and ddraw. Still, maybe try to change ddraw to 0 and see if it changes things ?!

      ddraw = 0 fixed it.  Thanks guys!

      Thanks for the VPX version :)

      A while ago I hex-edited the ravena ROM to say RAMBO instead of RAVEN at game start. I would upload it but because of the recent hoopla around the Gottlieb ROMs I’m not sure if that’s a good idea… at any rate, anyone with a hex editor can do the same thing.

      I feel that the flipper physics in this version could use some tweaking…

      Rambo (Raven unofficial MOD) is supported by official PinMAME project.

      Throw out your suggestion and i am sure people on here will test those physics.  If it is found to be better we can include those in an update

      I am having a problem with the sniper targets not registering on Rambo and Raven. I know on the vp9 version there was the same issue and an update fixed the problem.

      If you have a working vp9 version @bha19 – I wouldn’t mind having a copy.

      I am sorry  but i meant that there is a VPX version that works not VP9. It is version 1.3 by Rascal. When you hit a sniper you get a sound and the spot targets then work their magic toward extra ball depending on your rom settings and reset sniper. I also don’t think you can just replace the entire script with his or you will get errors.

      Oh. I know that we can’t replace the whole script. But, then again, we can compare and see what we’re missing.

      My display for raven and rambo is rotated -90. I have never seen this before! How can I rotate the display 90 clockwise? Or maybe I just need another download of the raven rom?

      ok, I got it. I changed the rom from raven to ravena and the display is correctly rotated now.
