    Chimes is probably for a real chime unit.  If it is set to “Chimes on” then the chime unit functions, if it is “Chimes off” the chime sound file is used.

    @scottacus
    is right, chimes on = DOF chimes on. The menu even signals which is on/off. Cycling through the menu hits a DOF chime or a SFX chime.

    Honestly I can not understand, I can only say that in my cabinet Chimes on = no chime sounds and for this reason I said it, but if that’s fine, then perfect and Thanks again for the table.

    Surely it would have been better to put in the menu:
    DOF chimes on and Off  :yes:

    :good:

    This is one helluva good looking and playing upgrade.  To think we might soon have a Pinbot at this quality is exciting. :good:

    I really like this table – the lighting of it, the way it plays, the high score masking tape that keeps me coming back to get a better score.

    Thank you.

    Probably the last tip in this guide. https://vpinball.com/wiki/visual-pinball-knowledge-base/reset-a-table-to-default/ – or it might be just a simple text file too.

    I checked for a text file, wasn’t one. I found that page but assumed since nothing is written to NVRAM or the .cfg because it is an EM machine there wasn’t a registry entry, I’ll check that later though when I get back from work, ta for the clues.

    It if it is not in a text file – then you probably need to download that program I’m talking about – run it and you will be able to edit or delete the score.

    It is probably one of those older VP binary files for scores that can’t be edited short of doing it through the script.  You’ll have to find the variable for high score that is read from the file and set it to something in the script  that is low enough for you to beat and then remove the code you added to set it low.  I’m not near my cab but can look into the script later and tell you what to add if you are that interested.

    it is located in the USER folder in the root of the visual pinball folder.

     

    EDIT – That may have been the vp9 version… let me verify.

    EDIT – yep, that was the vp9 version that saved it to the user folder. last update was in 2015. So not sure where this one is saved.

    EDIT  – So looks like it writes to the VPReg.stg file in the users folder. not sure how to change that information safely.

    Open the script and take a look at line 119 that says “load hs”.  That is the command to load the binary high score file.  Now look above to line 98, that sets a value of 22,420 as a default value high score if the game has not been played and a score higher than that has been scored.

    To blank out the current high score and reset it to 22,240

    1. Put a ‘ before “load hs” on line 119 so that it reads ‘ load hs.  This ‘ character tells VB that what follows is a comment and that anything that follows the ‘ should be disregarded.
    2. Run table and you should see 22,240 and DOG (probably because BorgDog is the table author) on the high score tape.
    3. Quit the game and remove the ‘ from before load hs.   Now the high score file has been over written with these default values.
    4. If 22,240 is too high, just change the value on line 98 to something lower before adding the ‘.

    No worries, this is how we can learn new things.  If you look way down in the script you can see that loadshs is a subroutine that loads the binary file C37 and there should also be a savehs (or something like that) that writes the C37 file.

    I used to use this system on the first EMs that I made but I switched to a different method that writes to text files in the user folder.  These are easier to work with should you make changes in the read subs.  You can easily find the text file, delete it and let your tables write a new one based upon defaults.  This can prevent errors should the read sub not find what it expects to find in the file.

    Why not use the exe fhat I’m talking about – it has a gui to list the tables with. You can edit and even delete the table from the VPReg.stg.

    Put this file by Destruk https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=21786 – into the users folder ( recommended  – can be anywhere ) and run it.  Done. Only takes time the first time around – downloading it. Editing script – setting lower value, start table etc. Takes ages compared. Afraid of your scores ? Take a backup of the file before you try it the first time. I’ve never had issues with that program. First time I used it was on Sliderpoints old TAF. He asked for options the first time you ran it and the answer stuck. At that time I was clueless how to get that dialog box back to change my answer, so, I used the exe to delete the entry for TAF.

    Worked like a charm, thanks a lot.
