    Here is an original table about the German Heavy Metal band "ACCEPT" (you'll find all the files in the download, Table, B2S Backglass, Music files, Rules and Backdrops)

    Runs with VP 10.6 last beta !

    I used the table "ALGAR" from Thalamus and Kalavera and Kalavera's B2S Backglass as a starting point,  so, big thanks to them for their permission to use their work

    So, you need to use the ROM "algar_l1" to run this table

    I changed the location of every element and added wire ramps, but the rules remain almost the same

    BALLS TO THE WALL replaces THE CHAMBER

    RUSSIAN ROULETTE replaces RIVER STYX, but, each time, you have to reach the LEFT hole first, and then the RIGHT hole without the ball hitting any other element of the table to score the 2X value

    METAL HEART replaces Extra-ball

    Here are the new rules (you also can find them with the table file, and in Table / Table Info, and, of course, on the apron) :

    Making 1-2-3-4 Advances X Value from 2X - 5X.

    Making Either Bank of 3 Drop Targets Lites RUSSIAN and ROULETTE Loops Shoots To Score 2X Value of Loop Shoot.

    Making Six Flashing Drop Targets Awards 10,000 to 100,000 Value.

    Making Six Flashing Drop Targets When 100,000 Lamp is Lit, Lites Top Eject for Possible - METAL HEART

    RUSSIAN and ROULETTE Loops Shoots Increase in Value from 10,000 - 60,000. At 60,000 RUSSIAN and ROULETTE Loops Shoots Lite Outlanes Which Alternate for Possible SPECIAL.

    Driving Captive Balls Against BALLS TO THE WALL Targets Scores Highest Flashing Values and Lights Ball Shooter Lanes to Score 50,000 and to Release Balls in BALLS TO THE WALL Lanes.

    Special thanks to :

    Thalamus for setting sounds in the script, adding sounds and testing the table

    JP Salas for testing the table and "cleaning" the script, and for his method to have flashers looking like flames from his table "DIABLO"

    Xenonph for testing the table, and some of his comments

    Flupper1 for his flashers templates

    Kiwi for his "always" appropriate replies to my questions in topics, and also to many others for their availability and help !

    Retro BASH for the primitive ramp (at the top of the table) I found in their Future Pinball table IRON MAIDEN

    Zanny for his primitive Spotlights (below the ramp at the top of the table)

    Please tell me if I forgot someone !

    And, of course, enormous thanks to VPX and VPinMAME developers ! :love39:

    Very special thanks to the band ACCEPT for their so "German" Heavy Metal (in the 80's, they seemed to come from another planet !)

    and to all the fans who encouraged me when doing this table !

    Sript options :

    If you want to change sounds volumes, it's from lines 15 to 32 in the script

    All the 24 songs you will listen to while playing this table, are from the five albums "Breaker", "Restless & Wild", "Balls to the Wall", "Metal Heart" and "Russian Roulette"

    The band is : Udo Dirkschneider (vocals), Wolf Hoffmann (guitar), Peter Baltes (bass guitar), Stefan Kaufmann (Drums), Jörg Fischer (guitar), and Hermann Frank (guitar) who only plays on the album "Balls to the Wall"

    Extract mp3 files from "Music" to your VPinball / Music folder

    Hope Accept fans will like this table (they will find no other ! :) ), and perhaps those who didn't know this band and don't listen to this kind of music too !

    Let there be (German) Heavy Metal !

    I think there’s something I didn’t understand !

    Is there a simple way to replace the image of the backglass by one of the table ?

    Nice table, but the backglass doesn’ t open here. All other tables work.

    I’m on the newest 10.6 beta. All scripts in the scripts-folder.

    :unsure:

    That is weird. It opened right away here. I have had one single db2s I haven’t been able to open yet and that is bassgeige’ cirqus voltaire :wacko:

    And @batch – table is really nice now with music and all. Music isn’t overpowering the table and vise versa. :good:

    Only trouble now is that I need to make a backup and restore of my algar  nvram. I want to keep my high-score which I admit it poor, but, still for that game ;)

    Thanks, Thalamus, I took care of the balance, because I wanted to be able to listen to both table sounds and music, even when playing “Fast as a Shark” !

    Joey, it’s very strange, it seems you’re the only one having this problem, did you change the name of the table or of the B2S file ?

    Yes, it seems, I’m the only one. :-(

    I will try today some things. Till now table and backglass have identical names; I have changed both, but that never was a problem.

    Nailbuster has uploaded a new b2sserver plugin I use. But I changed it and with the old one the bg also doesn’t start.

    Works fine here for me. Interesting table I will need to play more when I get a bit more time to test it.

    thanks batch.

    Thanks a lot batch. Table has many very nice details, the stage, album covers, chains, metal apron……
    Great music selection and of course the perfect draining sound :)
    B2s looks good and works fine for me too.

    I took the opportunity and bought some remastered albums :)

    I’m out of ideas. I test, all I can.

    Download the table and backglass again, don’t change the naming – no backglass
    Resize the backglass-images – no backglass.
    Load Thalamus Algar-table – also no backglass.
    Download another backglass – no backglass.
    And I must have a backglass with Algar in former times, because I have done a video-recording of the backglass.
    So I test a few older VPX-versions. All with the same result – no backglass.

    I give up for the moment. :unsure:

    Hallo Batch,

    I love Accept (of course i’m a german) and you made a wonderful table. :heart:

    Thank you for sharing it with us.

    German metal means ACCEPT forget the Scorpions. :negative:

    P.S. I think i have to steal a part of your script for my next table.

    Greetings  from Germany to France.

    Thanks for the photos, Randr, it looks very nice in a cab

    And you won’t disturb your left neighbours !

     

    Siggi, you can take anything you want in the script, it’s not mine

    Just credit the authors when it’s noticed
