    Gottlieb's 1978 Close Encounters, solid state version, continues my collection of system 1 tables.  I happened to pick up a Close Encounters parts cabinet that included a somewhat warped playfield in otherwise decent shape that I stripped down and scanned for the starting point for this.

    Includes, nfozzy's FastFlips flippers, rothbauerw's Ball Control script, ninuzzu's ball shadow routine (turn on or off at top of script, off by default), some logic and sound effect (roto target movement) from pinuck's vp9 table, and vp10.4 surround sound scripting.

    File includes an nvram file that sets the replay values to what is shown on the cards, place in vpinmamenvram folder.  Note, this is also set for extra ball play, so while the desktop and backglass will show "Number to Match" the display won't show match numbers as they are not in effect in add-a-ball mode. I could have scripted around that, but I checked my real system 1 machines and the Number to Match light is wired directly with the Game Over light, and does the same thing.

    Thanks to hauntfreaks for some primitive and graphics work and play testing.

    Had fun making the roto target primitives and getting it all to work and animate.  It's actually 15 seperate primitives all rotating together so that I could animate the individual ones when hit.

    this is an awesome addition to anyone cab… great detail as always, super satisfying roto-target hit animation
    all the little primitive details might be missed but all combined they just make for a much more realistic game play
    GREAT job Borgie  :good: :yahoo: :good:

    side note:
    Borg sent me the some BG images last week… and I’ve started the B2S… it will be coming very soon

    Very nice table and the rotating wheel looks also very well.
    I like these Alien, UFO, Space themed tables.

    Wow. – The great Pinuck table finally now in VPX, and even release by BorgDog and HF ! Now this is exciting news. Thank you so much guys. A while back I remember I saw a post by Ben saying how he admired Pinuck’ tables. I downloaded and I was amazed what Pinuck was able to do on VP9. Now, seeing my …I must admit favorite EM and graphics guy releasing this table together. I can’t be anything less than excited to give it a try.

    Thank you – I’m sure this is going to be a jewel in the collection. :heart:

    Now … I’m tapping my feets waiting for Loserman to release his EMs. I’m sure that is going to feel like x-mas … or better.

    Borgdog. Thanks another great table. You need to adjust the height of the back plactics by +2 to stop the issues seen in the picture above on the “A” of Alone. :good:
