    It will once it is approved by the admins. Regular people living regular lives – except being pinball fanatics :)

    Sometime there will be a delay.

    Sounds good – at this Table i always stop and listen to the BG Music at PinballX :-)
    Great if you have all Jewels and Fight vs. the Enemies, a really great Table.

    What a beauty it is! Thank you for your hard work!

     

    Just played it and noticed 2 (minor) things here:

    • analogue plunger: with these settings the plunger can not reach the 3rd (last) hole to make the skillshot. I changed the release speed from 100 to 115 and that did the job
    •  This only happened once to me: ball wanted to drain at left side, those spikes came up but instead of ‘caging’ the ball it was pushed upwards underneath the plastic there. Now, I do see there is a rubber band there but the ball just disappeared underneath that plastic. Shaking, nudging whatever didn’t release the ball, needed to exit the table and restart.

     

    Thanks again for this beauty!

     

    My favorite pinball machine?
    Where I can put my name on as G.C....

    @Flupper : So. that is what you are working on. Thanks for the peek into the future. WW was a true masterpiece. Well. All your tables are. I have a few friends that know really well how a pinball should play and they all agreed that you nailed it. :rose:

    Yes, with several improvements:

    • lamp has a normal map in VPX, so you have a gold lamp with real detailed reflections (and a completely new texture)
    • Genie is retextured; I am still looking for higher res images, so if anybody knows someone who knows someone… Or someone willing to take new photos of the genie from all angles…
    • ramps are full projected-from-view with proper transparency, thanks to a new feature of beta Blender 2.8
    • inserts are all new and prerendered; with a new solution in VPX, every insert has a real off texture and a fully dimmable on-texture
    • new custom pinball bats, just for fun (” fireball” bats)
    • All the metals and plastics will also be fully projected from view (for GI on/off and flashers) but that is not in yet

    Whoa, that looks great! Hopefully people find my mod good enough to play until you can release that sure-to-be master piece! 😊

    Don’t worry. Flupper isn’t finished tomorrow and your work is appreciated no matter what or when he releases. So, thanks again.

    Thanks a lot Skitso, I totally like, what you did here! Great job :yes:

    @STAT I also absolutely dig the music and sounds in this table. In fact after game over I start dancing to the music and feel very oriental – lol B-)

    Amazing job Skitso. This table is getting better and better with every mod.

    And, jeeezus, the King of Transparent Ramps has returned! Anything Flupper touches turns to gold… sexy, transparent, gold!

    Skitso brings us an even better PF than Hannibal (which, imo,  felt like a bad upscale from JPSalas’s original), but Flupper is bringing an even cleaner, sharper PF in the future.

    Thank you to the both of you.

     

    edit: oh, Skitso, that the ball shadow makes a huge difference to the immersive feel. And also, I scored a little over 24 million on my first try with your table. :D
