    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:

    Ali-v1.0.1.vbs – working

    ARFM_1.2.0.vbs – working

    Austin Powers (Stern 2001) 1.01.vbs – working

    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.

    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). :unsure:
