    Yeah. Well, it was kind of wrong just mentioning this site as the only example. It was what came to mind first and foremost. You’ve got guys like Arngrim, Carny, Wildman, JPSalas, BodyDump, Destruk, Rascal, Bord, BorgDog, 32assassins, Flupper, Cyberpez, nFozzy, Toxie, Fuzzel, Outhere etc. Been around for years and years, and never asked for anything. Ok, done with the subject now, even though I’m ashamed that I know I’ve left out more than a few.

    And. Now I’m done on the matter.

    I’ll second that @outthere has been everywhere with tech support.  I also laugh as he must the leader in dropping links to other help pages in the responses  :good:

    I also agree with Thalamus it’s a great community that people give so much of their time, resources and knowledge for free willingly

    Replace the table script with this code https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sverrewl/vpxtable_scripts/master/Big%20Bang%20Bar%20(Capcom%201996%20).vbs

    In the top … adjust – to your liking. 2000 or higher for less sound.

    Const VolDiv = 2000 ‘ Lower number, louder ballrolling/collition sound

    Const VolCol = 10 ‘ Ball collition divider ( voldiv/volcol )

    ok did all that now i get three script error

    line 69 scoretext ( i set it to ScoreText.visible = 0 but it still comes up?)

    line 803 controller

    line 1084 controller

    i dont know why i am getting controller errors i have rom bbb109?

    i have cController:cController = 1 (will change to 3 when i get it on my cabinet)

    Oh. Yeah. It might very well be that the script isn’t made for that table version. I just did a quick search in the github repo for the table and there is two versions there. Try the other one.

    The best way is actuall. Go here https://github.com/sverrewl/vpxtable_scripts – press the green button that says clone or download. Save the download as a zip. Extract it somewhere unimportant. Like c:\temp or something. Then see if find a script that is named exactly like your table. If you do. Drop that script in the same folder as the table, just like you do for db2s. Start the game and play. Of course, in your case, edit the script like I mentioned first. If you are happy with it. You may press that save button and you can now delete the script as it has replaced the original content “automatically”. This happens because vp sees the script as it loads and replaces it when it loads.

    If there is still issues. Delete the script without pressing save and nothing has changed.

    Oh, and i forgot to mention. This functionality is only available in 10.6 and beyond.

    I agree. But, I’ve also seen signs of “not so free” that I’m not very happy about, lets put it that way. All my life I’ve been a fan cooperation and sharing stuff for zero dollars. I understand that it takes a whole lot of effort in making the very best that vpx can offer us. When guys ask for money up front to create a new table. Well, that is way over the top for me. Annoyed, yes – very. Been considering leaving VP all together since I saw that to be honest.

    I can tell you guys something. Hosting this site pr. example is not free. randr is on his 5th or 6th year doing it – all for free. No commercials, no crap, all on his own bill. Never ever have I seen him complain about it. And that is one of the reasons I chose to help him, for free, to run this site. Only after I accepted, and we had discussions on how to do stuff, did I learn, only because I asked, I should add. On how much he actually pays to keep this up and running for free for everyone.

    I guess its has been on my mind for a while now, and I hope that tomorrow I’ll be relaxed saying that I’ve finally at least said my mind about it.

    All fair comments. I know it’s not the point you are making but hosting sites isn’t free so would be more than happy to chip in and contribute a few dollers towards hosting costs or as a retrospective thanks to some of the people you mentioned as I’m sure many would if a donation link went up ;)   Especially so at Vpinball.com.

    A lot of people here are over a certain age with a certain amount of disposable income so although there is some principle involved with asking/receiving donations i believe it’s not an issue for most to chip in 5-10 dollars to the people putting in a lot of work or are out of pocket from hostings, if the question gets asked. Having said that I can see both sides of that argument. I think a lot of people like the opportunity to give back or say thanks in some way but are not in the position to be able to create content to share and it does create a ripple of goodwill in the community when you see that happen so that in my mind is a net positive(?).

    So far i believe i have chipped in to 3x donation drives; monsterbashpincab, VPUniverse and Flintstones. I have offered others that have helped me things like sending gift of some coffee etc which neither of those individuals decided to take me up on. I think to expect to be paid might be wrong (depending on context) but to give the opportunity to have supporters i don’t have a problem with myself.

     

    @randr – maybe think about leaving a tip jar in the store to help cover hosting costs without having you ship physical items all over the world? Many of us would like to thank you for providing this space, i’m certain of that!

    I have to agree that asking for money to complete a project in a community that everything has been free and it’s part of the culture to share in hobby seems a little wrong to me.  That being said I have not offered much to the community but have reaped the benefits of it being free. I have donated to several of these but it still struck me as odd that “we will build it if we get paid” type of mentality.  Many authors are putting out very high quality work and asking nothing in return. Bord, jpsalas, loserman, 32a, just to name a few. I mean no offense to anyone one I didn’t mention, just rambling over a few beers

    Go through each step this guy did – by you hit the end, I’m confident that it is working for you.

    Thanks for the reply Thalamus. I was unaware of the Equalizer APO program. But it turns out both my roms, bbb108 and bbb109 were both bad. I downloaded them from a different site and now I have sound! :wacko:
