    I would love to see some DOF added to this build! I have a few bugs to fix but just have had no time to work on the table lately. Soon I will get to it. Honestly given the complexity of this build I’m surprised it don’t have more bugs :)

    What’s the latest on this one? I wouldn’t mind having a crack at adding DOF to this table as an upcoming project hence i ask :) Assuming no-one is on the DOF for this yet, would it be best to wait for a while (if there is another release planned) or should I get started?

     

    Normally I would do this…but I’m in the middle of the Popper 1.4 update….and learning Javascript sucks!!!

     

    For this table it involves completely updating the table script…and full DOF…not just MX Leds…so it’s not for the faint of heart given the monster size of this script.  You aren’t just updating triggers on DOF Config Tool, so you need to be familiar with vb script, and how tables work in vp,etc.. DOF is different than MX leds, so you need to be careful what types of triggering you are using for devices. You don’t want something triggered ON and left on when it’s a solenoid, shaker,etc.

    Whatever you think is best and i will defer to your better judgement of course… I don’t have solenoids on the cab yet or a shaker so I could add those in theory but I wouldn’t be able to test.

    That said I’m especially interested in this table due to the theme and rules (have some ideas for the “possession” mechanic etc). If there is a possibility to colab in the future, for example I’ll do the lights and someone else take the rest, i would certainly be interested…

     

    Looking for a script-based table in general to DOF regardless as next on the list so that i have then completed one of each category  based on your tutorials.  B-)

    If you look at Jaws or MOTU…you’ll see that I’m particular in labeling everything I do to make it easy to find down the line when updates are added.  This is important because you have DOF triggers…MX led triggers…and maybe PuP triggers. Sometimes you can use the same triggers for all, sometimes you can’t or don’t want to.

    This table in particular has a lot for DOF…I cry thinking about diving into it to get it done…  :(

    There’s a reason why Arngrim doesn’t like doing original tables as much as rom tables for DOF.

    I’m the opposite…but that’s because I want to do all of the DOF, MX Leds (cause I too like fancy) on an original table and it’s much more work to reverse engineer what someone else has done sometimes…

    I think that’s one of the many reasons I am drawn to this one… to do the hard thing as it generally yields the higher rewards and this thing is as complex as I have seen a VPX table get! As a vertical slice i feel that I could probably DOF anything if I could do a good job on 3A.

    Mostly 3A is a unique beast though – I want this table to FEEL possessed and even slightly broken at times. I’m talking little kids running away crying because a demon is in the machine and grown men checking their cabinet is wired up correctly :)  That was sort of the goal with Time Fantasy too – to try and inject a soul to the machine, even though these are just lights that are triggered by impact, the animation speeds, positioning and things like having an initial impact then after effect a half second later (or layering so that you get the occasional flicker of a different colour hidden in there) are what gives the thing a personality…. Example techniques used are things like linking a build up in lightshow to the bonus multiplier, “hidden” effects that might blink for a second or sometimes not at all depending on how fast you hit the ball and the way that some things are a sharp  impact (such as a bright strobe hit) vs a more organic or softer dripping down the sides of the playfield on some of the mushroom bumpers.

    Know i’m preaching to the choir here as you always try and augment the table’s features – especially games like Tron and Stranger Things have gained so much more depth from the light show and MOTU fits perfectly too as just a riot of saturday morning style hijinx with the various multiballs and all.

    Anyway, I’m rambling on at this stage. I will look at reverse engineering MOTU or stranger things script as my next point of order here and try to understand how you are doing things and then copy that style for whatever i end up working on!

     

    If anyone reading this is approaching three angels DOF, PLEASE PM me for a lot of ideas!  ;-)

    Thank you for the table. I had FP in my cab only for a short time and never played this table that much. Seems like a fun table–a lot is going on! What’s a good score on this table?

    Two things:

    1. I just recently installed this on my unfinished cab. I played a few games and next thing I know a couple hours are gone. This build could a lot longer than I anticipated.
    2. I now sleep with the lights on…this is the most ominous sounding game ever

    Damn you RandR…lol… ;-)

    On my cab, the 3 Angels backglass from 11/20/2018 no longer loads.  It does load on the previous version BTW.
