    Plastics renderings and dynamic drop shadow technique by Bord

    Special thanks to:

    Stern for creating this fun table.   Go put some quarters in a real machine soon! Knorr for his Stern Apron prim. Destruk, TAB, bmiki75 for the previous versions of this table that were used as a reference for this one VPX and VPinmame dev teams NFozzy, Rothbauerw for their excellent physics tutorial and fading lights classes. Ninuzzu, JPSalas and others who have contributed script and other bits that make this work! Nailbuster for his autoQA script G5k, Nailbuster, TerryRed, Flupper, Freezy and all of the other inspirational contributors that keep this hobby interesting RandR, Dazz, and Noah Fentz for hosting our community

    About this Table

    Straight up, the resources we had weren't great.  There's no pretty 4k playfield scan, no crisp plastic scans.   Photoshop and upscalers can only take it so far.  If better resources become available we will update the table!

    Known issues:

    1) The ROM complains a lot about "possibly broken" switches.  The switches that the diagnostic report identifies are very random.

    2) The game may hang onto a ball at the pop entrance under the roulette wheel.   I've caught this a couple times and confirmed that VPinMame thinks Switch 32 is active but the test menu shows it is not.   So this must be either a bug in the game code or a bug in the emulation, probably the latter. Once the game does a ball hunt it will let go of it, so it's not a showstopper.

    3) The roulette wheel is fairly complex for VPX.  In multiball, if it dumps 3+ balls onto it at once, some of that dogpiling activity may slow down some systems.   MaxBallsRoulette will delay autoplunges to try to mitigate this.

    This table is for personal use only, and should not be included with a commercial product.

    This table will be free to mod without permission after Septeember 1,2020.  Before then, please reach out to DJRobX or Dids666 before distributing mods of this table.

    About physics and POVs:  Everyone has a different opinions on these.   Did wanted something that plays a bit slower like Whodunnit so that is the physics profile we went with.   Most of the table is actually set according to the NFozzy/Rothbauerw guidelines, so you can import the physics set from NFozzy's T2 and it will play faster, if you prefer that.    The POV was chosen to maximize the view of the roulette wheel and the ball that appears underneath it.   Feel free to experiment and share .POV files amongst yourselves if you come up with something you like better.

    Turned out great, @djrobx and @dids666. Love how it looks/plays but also love how it pushed emulation to be better (pinmame update) and took some very clever problem solving to get it all to physically work. So glad you are both part of the hobby.

    1. This table did require a couple of months of late nights but all worth it if you guys are enjoying it. Rob has done an amazing job on the code and created some really great solutions to problems the common man like myself would not understand! Also always been a lover of Bords plastics so getting him to do that for this one was a treat!! Enjoy!

    The roulette wheel is mesmerizing.  Whole table is.  Love the game-play physics, glad you went with Dids preference on this – – and that it can easily be changed for those that have better game than me.  And a new pinmame splash screen!  Thanks again so much guys.

    Seldom, if ever have I seen a better thank you written on the release info. Of course, I bow my head in gratitude to all the guys mentioned. However without @djrobx, @dids666 and @bord we would still only have a “semi” working VP9. It has been awful weather outside days on end, My body aches from lifting snow soaked by rain. Looks like todays snow will be, just snow. Crossing my fingers and looking forward to see what you guys have created. Thanks you so much guys ! :rose:

    Take it easy there @thalamus . I’ve learned sometimes it’s just best to get snowbound.

    Not to take anything away from the nice new vpinmame splash screen, if you turn on cabinet mode, it goes away.  ;)
