After nearly two years of up and down time (mostly down), I am making a massive update to VP tables on my cab. I don’t have SSF, but I do want FastFlips. @thalamus repo at https://github.com/sverrewl/vpxtable_scripts has been a great resource for making sure I have some of the older VPX tables up to date for 10.6. The “side car” loading feature for external table scripts has made the process much easier.
As mentioned in another thread, most of the scripts work but a handful do not. I wanted to provide some notes such as they are. Not pointing fingers (again most work!) but why not address any issues for the next user? I’m not doing thorough testing here. I literally have hundreds of tables to update. Basically, I play a ball, test for basic functionality, then move on to the next table. Here it goes:

Okay so I knew about the scripts Thalamus has been working on, sadly they came out after I manually changed every table for fast flips.
So is the sidecar loading a thing now, if so how is it done? I know there was discussion about it but have not been following the 10.6 beta thread.
Yes I know i could easily find it or ask Thalamus about it, but I thought I would ask the question here so others can find the answer as well.
Heck I missed the POV sidecar loading until just recently, and that was 10.4 release enabled
Also heck of a job and dedication to do all these scripts @thalamus

Give the vbs the same file name as the vpx. Open the table in VPX. That’s it!
Side car loading means that VPX will use the external script if it finds a vbs file with the same name. Good way to share an updated script that adds FastFlips, DOF, SSF, etc. if the original table did not include these features.

Great info in this thread I learned something that’s for sure! Thanks guys
Messing with the VPinball app and push notifications.
So if you haven't downloaded app yet what are you waiting for!?

You got me thinking about this after reading the thread. Is the difference really noticeable?

FastFlips – definitely noticeable.
SSF – I don’t have it, but it is purported that it benefits even the cabs of mere mortals like myself. I don’t know. I run with table noise running through HDMI to regular stereo TV speakers.
Is it worth it? Implementing FastFlips is generally very easy to do in the script. So, I guess it depends on if you are faster at editing the script then you would be downloading a file from the repo (and often not even needing to change the file name).

Great info and great timing. I was going to start copying and pasting Thalamus’ scripts earlier today but stopped because I wondered how I’d keep up with changes when table updates came along.
As for SSF, it is noticeable. I don’t have mech feedback (because SSF came along during my build) and I clearly hear the left – right separation. Definitely feel the thump of slings/flippers in the nearest hand. JP’s NASCAR is a favorite. I can close my eyes and track the ball on the outer loop, and the ball crossing the playfield on the metal ramp.
That’s why Thalamus’ work is immensely appreciated.

Appreciate this very much Carny – for two reasons. I see a few tables that I’ve got that you don’t and vise versa. Doing a diff edit is easier than having to hunt possible locations. I would be a bit surprised if you get errors right away from starting a table though. That would – as you mention probably mean you are trying to run it with the not exact same version. It is of course a bit problematic that some authors upload a tables as eg. 1.2 but the table inside follows the standard that some think they need it to be “tablename (manufacturer year)” without any versioning. I should probably have thought about this myself and given them version names myself. But, this started out as something I did for myself and I didn’t have any plans at first for sharing. Only when Wob started posting his spreadsheet about what tables supported Fast Flips, I decided to share.
About the renaming. It is getting much worse for those that run popper front end and decided to let popper fuck up the versioning
Is it noticeable for users without SSF. It should be. It will be more of a left/right thing than anything else. I want to make one thing very clear. It is not possible for me, with scripts only ( well – it might be, but requires too much work ) to address every sound. Typical samples that I’ve left alone is those initsnd, exitsnd … For those. Use the Sound Manager to pinpoint where the sound should go. Probably not worth it if you don’t have SSF and definitely something you want to fix yourself IF you do. It makes a huge difference since those often are related to drop targets resets and balls popping out of kickers.
Don’t copy and past. Download them all or better, use a git client. put them somewhere and just move the ones you want along side the table. If table name doesn’t match exactly, then there is a high chance that your trying to apply it to not the same version. However – a table can be updated without changing the script and of course in that case it should still work.
I’ve sent Xenonph my latest versions for those sound mods of his. On those tables, SSF isn’t that effective – so it isn’t a big miss except for FF. Don’t remember if that is in his tables or not.

Well, the best solution would be to get this stuff into the official version. Arngrim tends to be able to get DOF changes into the build prior to or shortly after an official release. SSF is just as important to some users, so it would be good to be the champion for it in the same way arngrim did for DOF. You probably already are! The repo is the solution for the older builds that were considered complete at that time. But ideally there would be less need for it over time as SSF becomes part of the process of scripting current and future projects.

Yeah I agree. Some guys have contacted me before release :)
To be honest. I was hoping to get some of the official builds to pick up the code changes. And some authors have – @bord pr. example. If you spend a bit of time on it you’ll soon notice that at least 80% of the tables used JP’s ball rolling routine. (The few that don’t use a crazy xydata routine that is way too CPU intensive and even tries to keep control of where the balls collide. Totally obsoleted since VP now tells you). By changing that ever so slightly you make it SSF aware. Almost just as many use common “Support” routines. In my case, I just deleted them – and replaced them with “mine”. Has a few subs too many, but that is just to support that some authors tend to call it Pan and other AudioPan etc. Then you have the collections. All these elements are common as I said in almost all tables, and if only we could make the “new” ones the standard. It would make it much easier than having one guy constantly running around asking if they wouldn’t mind make it more SSF aware.
I’m not sure how many of these excellent authors start from scratch by using the default table VPX has to offer. But, I guess that is a good place to start to get it implemented for the future ?!
There is one thing to be aware of that I’ve forgot to tell and I should fix. In the rush of getting all out I haven’t really checked that the tables playfield is at 0. My “standard” has been that the ball is on the playfield if the z value is below 30. And I recently revisited the amh support thread and learned that that it starts at 100. So, it should be changed to 130. There might be a few where this has been introduced but it is a easy fix. Its in these cases where a little feedback is of great help. I don’t play all tables all the time (updated an fixed now for both amh versions )
Last tip I want to give you guys. It can be a good idea – first time you run a table. To press that debug button, open the console and keep it on for the first game or two. There is more than a few tables out there where the sample in the script isn’t matched to the one in the table. I’ve fixed many of these. But, in some cases, the “correct” sound wasn’t imported so I left it in. You will be warned that those are missing. Ignore those that says it is trying to play 0 though. In some cases, just adding these sounds will enhance the experience more than you first would think. You just don’t realize it before you hear it
Take extra care when you download these tables : Gorgar, Viking, Stern Dracula, Hulk (BD/HF), Dolly Parton. There is extra info in the top of the table script – instructions to how to improve these tables using Sound Manager. Samples are exported and imported again with new names. Names that the default table doesn’t have so what would happen is that you don’t get a sound at all IF you don’t follow the instructions or revert the sample names.

Hi, I’ve completed updating what I intend on updating for VPX. I wanted to thank @thalamus once again for all the work done on the script repository and for all the support along the way. I haven’t run a quality control check on everything, but I’ve tested many, many of them. And Thalamus took in the feedback to fix and add to the repository where needed. It’s a great resource as there are dozens of great tables that were released prior to FastFlips and SSF becoming just an expected part of any table’s feature set on release. With VPX 10.6 external script loading it’s easy to update a table. Fact is, I simply just keep the script and the unmodified table in the Tables folder and that’s it. I don’t even bother to incorporate the updated script into the table.
I also wanted to thank @joey2001 for the POV respository.
I had started with a repository of Hauntfreaks POV files. He’s a legend but I think for the most part that Joey2001’s POV files are just as good and the repo is still being maintained and new files added. Again, I just download the file and use VPX auto-loading to do the rest. Very simple.

I hope that more people will chime in. As you said. It can be done without even touching the table. Good thing is that Arngrim can add and update without anyone needing to interfere. I say again. It is not my repository. I just happened to start it. So, please contact me if you think that you can contribute or if you feel that the git stuff is a bit hard. Send me a PM.

Yeah, running a git client would be the very easiest thing for many users. I didn’t want to have extraneous software on the cab though. Just downloading individual files with a browser is very easy too. Or, of course, the repository can be downloaded in one go also.
