This is a Ted Zale design from Bally that features a three ball multiball, zipper flippers and lots of fun scoring options. I also think that the artwork is killer.
This table has new sound routines for arch and apron rolling as well as balanced surround sound. Flipper Tricks and nFozzy's physics dampening routines are used to make the table play as much like a real EM as possible.
As in all of my tables there is an Option Menu that can be accessed by holding down the left flipper button before a game begins. This can be used to set number of balls as well as many other settings. I should mention that 0n some Wiggler's there is a pin or a post in the left side "Death Lane" (another Zale invention along with zipper flippers, mushroom bumpers, butterfly rollovers, the Bally Gator and more) that can be enabled or disabled in the options menu. I can't tell if this was standard from the factory or was added in later by users to make the game easier. Bord suggested the phrasing which I think perfectly summarizes the option. No judgement here...
Thanks to Bord for his crazy good Blender skills and to KDS70, JR and Whirlwind for testing. There is a B2S and wheel image included in the download.
If you don't know much about Ted Zale and his designs there is a bunch of material out there but in summary he revolutionized pinball. Many more resent designers like Steve Richie credit him as an inspiration . Zale however was the Howard Hughes of pinball, good luck trying to find a photo of him.
There is an option towards the top of the script that allows you to turn on colored balls. When I was developing the script I needed to know which ball was which so I wrote code to do this. If you uncomment the line the table will make BOT(0) green, BOT(1) red and BOT(2) blue. I think this is pretty cool but it is set to "off" as a default so the game will use standard steel balls as a default.
There is also an option towards the top of the script (set to off by default) that can be used to give the table the ability to make a PinballY High Score file. This data can be used by PinballY to display high scores on the DMD during game selection mode.
