It was always possible on FP...but not woth it to be honest.

VPX has a Time of Day Option on the table editor that can adjust the Global Lighting based on your clock's time.

I've always kept it disabled myself, as VPX lighting is more "fake" than FP-BAM's New Renderer and lighting. Also... Time of Day doesn't account for the location of your screen. Is it in a dark basement with no outside light? Is it in an arcade with lots of other lighting? It could be noon, yet pitch black in the room you are playing in.


On tables like VPX TOTAN (which is stunning) the lighting is all pre-rendered and baked in...so you don't want to mess with that too much as it will ruin the look of the table.


For Lighting on any FP-BAM table...trying to accommodate everyone's taste in Lighting is not ideal. It's much better to dial in the entire table's lighting for "one" GOOD setting...the inserts...the flashers...the global lighting....the post processing (which everyone seems to miss)...bulbs...image lights... all individually set and changeable with a variable for each to allow a users to change it up if they want. Yes, you can do Presets like George has done as well along those lines. Myself I prefer one single good setting...but still give users the choice to change up the variables for the lights,etc to make it easy for them. If they were really picky about lighting, they would want that anyway.

Halloween PinEvent is a simple example that allows the users to change up that stuff to their liking. There's much more that can be done though.

Still I have seen this asked before and wasn't sure how to convert the Time stamp into a usable format.

I haven't played Back to the Future yet...but for instance you can have events relate to the current time.

If you don't get there by whatever in the current real time...you blow up...or whatever

@Gimli A quick and simple way to identify the "Hour" of the day...

Dim CurrentHour
CurrentHour = Hour(Now)

FYI: I use 'FormatDateTime' functionality to show the current time on the DMD when playing; albeit when testing/messing around with the script ;)
