Hi All,
I am Joost (Proost) a dutch creative director and medior 3d/graphics artist. I am currently working on a original visual pinball table in the Big trouble in little China theme. I am new to the scene (just finished installing VPX and in the proces of building my first cabinet) so all feedback, advise, constructive criticism and help is highly appreciated !

I started of with the concept of the table, that resulted in a 30+ paged document. Which covers the first (ambitious, I know) approach to Design, 5 Modes, 3 ball saves, 3d modeling, audio and Pup Pack video's. Here is the link to the document with all the videos:

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1a59pgW9CI_C7BDGnLYJxFIjmauxIXhNp2tNhZ0st6wY/edit?usp=sharing

Next steps will be getting this into VPX, Playfield layout and coding (read: copying elements from other scripts) which I know nothing about :) But hey! who knows... Let's see where this project will go from here. All help is appreciated: Links to tutorials, script or articles.

Would love to share this table with you guys someday!

    I don’t know the first thing about this movie (never got around to watching it), but your work looks AMAZING! Now I’m gonna HAVE to watch the movie just so I know what all is going on here. Top notch work so far, and great vision!

    Big Trouble is my all time favorite movie. This concept looks amazing. You have nailed the look and feel of the movie in your designs.

    I can hardly remember the movie, but your concept looks very promising and well thought so far!
    Good luck with the rules/script – you will need it ;-) (I also had no clue about scripting, but my original table happened to work somehow in the end ;-) (most of the times)

    This looks AMAZING. I’ve waited so long for this movie to get the Pinball treatment. Loving the work you’ve put in so far. I would be happy to be a beta tester if needed :D.

      Hi @rivaldo85 , The artwork is not mine. I am not an artist I’m more of a designer. And I don’t think this is made an app. I just ran it through After Effects to do the transition from video to the artwork. The font I made miself :)

    i love the movie and the concept looks great.
    But this will be a hell of a lot work.
    Believe me.

    @siggi Yes I am beginning to get aware of that. Luckily a few members already offered to help out. Because I can use all the help I can get.
