Loving this table. I can’t stop playing with the chimes!
One observation. Some of the insert lights are very dim when lit. It’s sometimes hard to tell if they are lit or not. Especially the right drop target “when lit” light. You can’t even tell it’s lit even if you’re looking right at it when it changes from off to on. I cranked the intensity up to 100 and at least it’s not visible, but still not bright.
I think Borg forgot the transmit setting
for a quick fix turn on just layer 8 , then select the insert lights ,set them to the highlighted below
then test and set the intensity for each insert to your to your liking…

Never noticed the flipper shadow issue until you mention it can’t not see it now! Thanks for the update borgdog

Great Table goes to 1.0, thanks again BorgDog and thanks Mr. randr

That playfield looks super sharp. This theme reminds me I need to get my ass back in shape (been saying this for three years).
Playfiled shadows on his one? I didn’t check the layers, but it seems like they’re added. Lighting looks extra nice. This one plays great, like all your EMs, BorgDog.
There’s one change I always make to VP EMs to match my perception of the real deal (with which I’m less familiar than BD, who owns a few of the I think): I bump up the strength of the outlane post rubbers to 1.15. Seems I often catch a break on outlane drains on EMs, and this seems to give a VP ball a fighting chance — maybe too much of one (!?)

I never touch anything BD makes. Find it kind of weird that two rubbers in the playfield has different physical properties than the rest. But, if it is to prevent drains to increase the playtime. Go for it. One thing I’m actually considering is looking at the top lanes. The left has a hit ratio of at least 90% from the plunger. Might be that it can be fixed by adjusting some elasticity of a rubber or two.

Thanks guys, this is definitely a fun table that I would not have really considered as the theme is kind of blah, at least to me. I have 5 of these gottlieb system 1 machines in my currently 6 machine collection and they all have a similar feel about how they play having basically the same mech strengths, slopes, and objects. It’s the feel of the game overall more than the individual hits or shots that I try to get right and as Thalamus says how can those two rubbers be different than all the rest. One of the things that I keep meaning to do is split out the rubbers on posts from rubber between posts into separate physics options as the ball does play somewhat differently off them, and did seriously consider doing it on this one, but it seems like a lot of work and the “feel” of the game seems right without it, or at least close enough, and I’m inherently lazy
@thalamus I think hitting the left lane on top 90% of the time may be related to plunger strength, which I think may be high on this one which doesn’t allow for much variableness (if that’s a word) in the plunge shot. try lowering the plunger strength which would allow for more skill shot ability and a better chance of hitting the far left top lanes past the wheel on a soft plunge. One of the things that does seem very different on my real machines is the plunger strength and rebound, some I think have stronger springs and newer bouncier rubber wheels than others, it is very noticeable. They probably were pretty similar new, but 35+ years of replacement parts from different places results in more variations.

Yeah, I thought about changing the plunger strength as well. But, could not do that while the table was played in the competition. I began in the end to kind of manage to increase the hit percentage without changing anything. But, well, I’m lazy too. I really should have attached my V2 of zeb’s plunger. Might have helped out in this case. It’s been laying on the table waiting for maybe a month now. I’m kind of scared to change the current nudge unit, it works very well.

You playing full screen with a backglass or desktop? Check virtual dmd position maybe in your setup

Some of the lower end graphics cards, particularity any Intel, for some reason don’t like to show light objects that are on the backdrop which is what I am using for the score displays. If that is the case, edit the script and change line 157 from hidden = 1 to hidden = 0 and the pinmame “dmd” will then display for the scoring.

oh ok but I thought a 980ti is a high end card
