    This is an FYI in case someone else is working on, or planning to work on, an update to JP’s Flash. The physics and game play on this are spot on, compared to the actual game.

    A couldn’t find good PF images or scans, so I’m redrawing and correcting JP’s PF using my real Flash as a guide (my PF isn’t in great shape). Hope to add Vogliadicane’s vintage lighting, used on Fathom.

    Plus other enhancements.

    Some of the early work compared to original.

    .you could always scan your pf and just use it as a worn image 👍🏻

    I guess I could. Sure would be nice to play Flash without looking at my sad little PF.

    You know it’s rough for sure but would be a great table like that… at least as an option? I know I would probably use it👍🏻

    I like the idea of scanning it for the accuracy. Would be great to even just have the beat playfield as a guide for correct element placement.

     

    DO IT! :yahoo:

    Accuracy beats beauty every time. B-) – ok, admit, there is a limit :whistle:

    Purists! :D. I guess y’all will want me to get djrobx to recreate the wonky effect of cupped inserts, too!

    hmmm, stripping the Playfield. Again. This would be a good time while I troubleshoot my non-booting MPU.

    hmm, may have to play around with cupped inserts, I know they say to just use a flat mesh for the playfield but it does work with non flat elements.  might throw in a raised edge on one as well bu that would be too easy.  the vulcan i used to own had all the bonus inserts in front of the flippers severely cupped, ball did some weird stuff. still regret not stripping down and scanning it before I sold it.

    Yeah, check out the PF mesh on Hot Hand. All the holes around the spinning flipper are just part of the PF mesh. Cupped inserts are definitely possible with a PF mesh. Would be really cool.

    ah, yeah forgot about that one.  I was just thinking of just poking holes in the playfield mesh then I could put flat and cupped primitives under each hole and every time you start the table it randomly makes some of them cupped by switching collideable on and off, or even multiple cupped for varying level of cuppedness.

    I got excited because I found a guy selling a pretty good PF and I figured I’d replace my worn one, so I bought it. But apparently during the process of stripping all the rusty parts, the plywood cracked, so he refunded my money. I’ve asked him about scanning or taking a grid of photos that I can stitch together. So I’m waiting…
