    What we thought was going to be a fairly straight forward conversion of a previous VP8 + VP9 version of Playboy (Stern 2002) turned out to basically need a complete rebuild and recreation from scratch.

    Using an original playfield blueprint, Rascal meticulously rebuilt the entire table with every detail put in the correct places. All toys and special features were rebuilt from scratch to function properly as well.

    Using high-resolution photos taken by a friend of mine the real table, all playfield and plastics images were redrawn / recreated to match as close as possible to the original with minor exceptions of areas that couldn't be photographed without completely stripping the playfield - which was not an option.

    Due to some of the real images / graphics used on the original table, such as the centerfold faces in the center of the playfield and all the swappable / interchangeable inserts, that were very low print quality and filled with print DOTS, all real images of the centerfolds and inserts were cobbled together from MUCH BETTER quality PLAYBOY images form the internet.

    Many of the insert images were from actual PLAYBOY pictorials published in the magazine, and alternate images that were never published, but were used for this game only. I was able to find 90% of the actual images used, but had to substitute other PLAYBOY images from the same era / year for any we were missing.

    That being said - because this table is "all digital" we were able to build in EXTRA images for all the inserts. If you have the script option set to "nudity" - the table will automatically / randomly pick from 5 different nudity sets of inserts that were created for this table. That means you will see different "girls" every time you play the table ... and who doesn't like seeing MORE naked and beautiful woman while playing pinball?

    You can change the ALL the insert images for the Peek A Boo, opening Centerfold, Magazine Inside, Spinning Splash Triangle, Tease Door, and Mirror during gameplay by using the LEFT MAGNASAVE button. See below for more info.

    Rascal went above and beyond making this table as great as it could be. His skill set and attention to making everything look, work, and play properly (including the GROTTO mirror reflection that never worked on any other prior release) and he deserves all the thanks and credit. Our collaboration was very smooth, easy, and most importantly, fun, especially during this tough time our country  (and the world for that matter) is going through at the moment.

    We hope you enjoy the hard work we put in to making this table for the VPX community!

    Download includes:  New Wheel Image and BMP AVI for Real DMD + RealColorDMD front end users.

    INTERESTING FACT:

    - - - - - - - - -

    Bally / Williams original started development of this table to be part of the Pinball 2000 lineup ... using the same holographic imaging as Revenge from Mars and Star Wars Episode I. That would have been amazing!

    After the fall of the company, the pinball's basic design / theme was picked up and released by Stern Pinball. This is why most of the actual PLAYBOY images used in this pinball are from 1998, 1990, and 2000 issues of the Playboy Magazine and NOT from 2001 or 2002 when the table was released by Stern.

     

    NOTES:

    - - - - - - - - -

    You can adjust the Day / Night Cycle slider if you want to make the table appear brighter or darker than how it has been released.

     

    FEATURES:

    - - - - - - - - -

    - Complete Rebuild of Table

    - Brand New 4k Playfield and Plastics Scan + Recreation

    - Brand New 2k Backglass / Translate Scan + New B2S

    - Complete Toys Rebuild, Features, and Functions

    - 1 Non-Nude Set of Inserts, and 5 Nude Sets of Inserts

    - New Lighting FX to match original table

     

    SCRIPT OPTIONS:

    - - - - - - - - -

    - Script Option: Centerfold Playfield Lighting: Light Centerfold+Month, Month Only (Default = Centerfold+Month)

    - Script Option: Nudity, Non-Nudity for all Inserts (Default = Non-Nudity)

    - Script Option: Alternate Flipper Appearance / Texture (Default: False ie: Original)

     

    ADD ONS:

    - - - - - - - - -

    - Use LEFT MAGNASAVE to change Opening Centerfold, Peek A Boo, Playboy Magazine Inside, Splash Spinning Triangle, Tease Door, and Mirror Panel inserts from nude to non-nude and visa versa. There are 5 nude sets of inserts and 1 non-nude. Every time you press the LEFT MAGNASAVE, the table will swap from non-nude to 1 of 5 different sets of nude versions. This feature works during gameplay and when table is in attract mode. Perfect way to immediately hide the nudity from people who might be offended.

    - Use RIGHT MAGNASAVE to turn ON / OFF the main playfield Centerfold Lights. This option is for the centerfolds image + month to illuminate, or just the month. In the original table, it was only the month that illuminated.

    Thanks STAT! Much of what you say is your preference, but to be honest, your layback change in your picture does not look that great. The back wall is all crushed and its pretty flat looking. Again its preference.

    Can’t match your dmd location, size, and color from your image:Playboy (Stern 2002) Desktop.png

    For a single screen user, how did you get the dmd to appear in the background box graphic?

    And how did you make it purple in color?  I’m assuming I won’t have to change each of the 4 DMD colors to shades of purple.

    I’m also assuming you aren’t using the external DMD, yet when I use the other one, I can only use two sizes: doubled and non-doubled (which is too small).

    temp

    TIA

    Incredible work, gents. I gave it a good long play-through on my stream. Cracked 56M. Only big issue is the game lost track of the number of balls during Centerfold Multiball twice. I drained one with 2 in the lock and the game ball searched. Here’s the moment in the stream it happened: https://youtu.be/QlCGSvlsODs?t=1993

    Also, the flippers look like they are halfway below the playfield. I had to raise them up (I noticed that mostly in VR).

    Terrific work, everyone! Amazing.

    TIA

    Desktop Users / Sing Screen Users can do this:

    1.) Go to Configure Keys, Nudge, DOF vpx
    2.) Lower Right Corner is aCheckbox to disable b2s – check that.

    This disables b2s and puts the DMD in the proper designated place.

    I honestly don’t know is this is BAD for other tables in desktop mode because I only use a cab.

    That being said – you can always manually resize the DMD by RIGHT-CLICKING on it to get the size you want and apply the “altcolor” feature in VpinMame with F1 to color the DMD.

    The color palette for that “playboys” ROM is on another website – that is currently down at the moment.
