    I’m too lazy to rewrite what I wrote on the other VP forum, so I’ll just cut and paste!  Trying to spread the word so this can go from resource to WIP!

    <p style=”margin: 0px; padding: 0px; color: #000000; font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 22.4px;”>Hello all.  Been away from it for a while.  I got the itch to try my hand at building in VP10.  I wanted to try to build a table that hasn’t been redone in a while and Akiles provided a lot of good images for Gottlieb/Premier’s Wipeout, which I always wanted to build.  Unfortunately the only straight on, blank playfield image was of pretty low quality.  I really didn’t want to start a redraw, but I ended up starting it, and many many MANY hours later, I think I’m calling it good enough.  It is by no means perfect, but I think it’s close enough.  Some things I had to estimate but for the most part I tried to stay as true as I could to the original.  I used photoshop’s Pen tool, which to my understanding vectorizes the strokes, but I could be wrong.  I know that photoshop isn’t really a vector-centric suite, but it’s all I have so I decided to try it.  If anyone is interested in cleaning it up, I can provide the psd file.</p>

    <p style=”margin: 0px; padding: 0px; color: #000000; font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 22.4px;”>My intention was to try and build the table as well, but I’m quite burnt out after the redraw.  Additionally, I was working on some basic stuff on another table in VP10, and it’s just too frustrating/difficult on my under-powered laptop, so I am hoping that this playfield will encourage one or some of the great builders here to take on Wipeout!  Or, perhaps a newcomer interested in building, because a good playfield is half the battle, right?  Hehe, truth be told, I was a little intimidated by the ski lift and slalom on this table anyways…wasn’t quite sure how to script those.  Ok, anyways, here are some quick pics.</p>

    Awesome. Seems like by this time Gottlieb/Premier was really hitting their stride with their pinball machines.
