    If anyone knows anyone who can get any kind of access to this table,  I’d like to build it some day similar to how I built Joust with Randr.

    The resources for this table are very thin,  so if someone could even just get me close up photos of the play field and plastics I could redraw them.

    I think @nicholaschristopher had this on his project wishlist once, too. He may have some resources.

    I think the biggest challenge in terms of redrawing with poor pics to work off of is the score board, these are the best images I can find for it:

    Using this flyer image while using other pics for reference makes it ‘possible’ to redraw the table and plastics.

    As you can see, none of these images are close to high res.  :(

    I’ve been enjoying playing some of your projects Dark! I’m new to virtual pinball but I’m having a blast.

    I don’t have access to the table but I found a few better (or at least a bit better) quality images of the table online.

    A few of those URLs have pretty decent images of the playfield. If you’re at all interested I’d be willing to help a bit with research, vector art, or 3D modeling in my free time. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not all too great at any of it. In the past I’ve had pretty good luck with “reverse projection mapping” images in Blender with other projects (not related to pinball).

    Thanks Pineapplewoman I’m glad you’re having a good time here.  I grabbed everything remotely useful, these will help for sure.

    I sent messsges to people on pinside that had the table asking if they would be willling to help with resources ( pics or scans) and the responses are starting to come in.  Ktm450 and firefly9r68 both responded that they could help.  Reach out to them to see what they can provide.  I will send more names as they come in

    Yes as you can see from the pic, the resolution on all the graphics is terrible.  Though it may come in useful as a reference.

    A few people have gotten back to me, the good news is they are willing to help, the bad news is it’s going to take some time, but as they say good things come to those who wait.

    One user is going to be doing a full tear down/restoration and will be taking pics during the process, but it won’t be happening for another couple of months.

    That’s great.  Maybe some of them have the manual too.  It would be nice to get a blueprint and start building the table until you wait for the images

    Yeah same guy doing the tear-down “ktm450” says he should be able to copy the manual for me.
