    Make sure you have version 1.2 – then you should have that one ;)

    I just download 1.2 again and your are right. It is sw45. I must have started a different World Cup in the tables folder on the cab :)

    I now downloaded the 1.2 file in this thread again.
    I have V1.2, but the word “tvballpopper” does not exist in the whole script.
    See my screenshot what my line 153 looks like:

    Ah. I see now what is going on. They are actually sending the ball with a 35 angle into finaldraw primitive. So, that is what confused me in the first place. Well, then my first answer was kind of valid I guess.

    .InitKick sw45, 35, 100 <- 35 is the angle, 100 is the force. And you can add

    .KickForceVar = 3

    .KickAngleVar = 3

    In the lines below – the routine starts at line 187.

    I tried to change the force (100), and it worked.
    But I can’t see any difference when I change the angle (35). Whatever I enter there, the
    ball bounces out at the same angle. Are you sure the value 35 is the angle?

    Yes, well, you have to change it very much I guess. As I said. They shoot it with quite a lot of force into a primitive. So, I’m not very surprised that a small angle change will change that much. The primitive will steer it and maybe change of a few degrees doesn’t change anything. Well, of course if you change it by a huge amount it will. Maybe it isn’t coming out of there then. You could just for fun try to change the 35 by adding 180 degrees to 215. I bet you see a change ;)

    @Thalamus Thanks for helping out here again!



    @h2so4jb
    Its a bug, the primitive should not be collidable at all. For that confusion of what is force and angle in the script. First is the angle, second the force. Sometime i throw the ball against the wall to just let it bump back. So the angle is the opposite direction. Thats why you dont see any changes. The wall is the key for that.

    Anyway, i will upload the table in a few hours, thanks for the bug reports.

    Thanks for the update. Then I will be waiting for version 1.3 shortly where
    you have fixed this. It is better that you as a professional edit the script.  :-)

    You are only a professional pr. definition if you get payed for what you do. Knorr don’t even want to be ;-)

    I however agree with you. Updates done by these guys that know the machines and vp very well, are always to prefer over backroom hacks ;)

    As always thank you for this amazing table. A true masterpiece!

    Small thing I noticed is that the ball makes a small hop rolling on the flipper when returning from inside lanes.
    Is this intended?

    Thanks for the update @knorr ! :rose:

    Ball hops are common in pinball. Annoying ? In some cases it can be, but, it also makes tables more interesting in a way too. One way of solving it to slow the action down, maybe if the speed is high enough let it roll over to the other flipper and in that gain control. Those that hate ball hops the most are often those that have a on the fly playing style and machines where this happens the controlled player will in most cases gain an advantage if he is good enough to adjust for it.

    This is VP, you can always adjust that yourself, you are the mechanic, Knorr is just the supplier. A very poor one I should add ;)

    Thanks for your answer and insight there Thalamus.
    It’s not that it’s annoying per se, I just noticed I kinda need to get used to the movement.
    Most of the times I am planning my controlled shots pretty carefully though.
    Imho it’s the only way to actually achieve something in a game. (getting to reactor 9 in TNA is still above my league though hehe)
    Whacking the buttons like an 8yr old gets me nowhere.
    But also the randomness is what makes pinball so attractive, be it virtual or on a real machine.

    Awesome table Knorr!  Is anyone else experiencing bad announcer audio? In my setup, the announcer sounds are really low / muffled and i’m on 100 in options (the table sounds are LOUD). any ideas on how to fix?

    I just finished my mini cab and this is a favourite table of mine. A fantastic recreation!

    I did have some performance issues and I’ve smoothed them out by adding a static back glass and lowering some table specific settings in VPX. But I still have a random annoying delay when shooting from the assist section close to goal. Sometimes it takes as much as 5 seconds or so to respond to my flipper when shooting. Other times it’s pretty quick at around half to one second but it;s never “instant” like a flipper press. I don’t have any flipper lag in normal play. Is there a fix for this please?

    In fact… is it an instant response on the real table?

    I did build in a small delay for the penalty kick simply because it’s boring and need no skill without the delay. But it’s only a about 10ms, not even close to 5 seconds. While multiball it shoots automatically, this can take a few seconds and this should be a normal behaviour. I will make an option for the next update to turn off the delay so at least you can compare.
