Looking for images of Escape from the Lost World

I'm thinking about doing Escape from the Lost World for VP9. Been playing around with the current version and the over the bridge shot can be simulated much better in VP9 since the ball doesn't melt into edges like it does in earlier versions.

Anyone have good images of the playfield and other parts? I've grabbed all the ones I can find but haven't found any really good ones or any stripped playfield images.

It's often the case with playfield pictures that they must undergo a Frankenstein transformation using random pieces of different pictures from several sources.
The GIMP, Inkscape, Photoshop, Paintshop Pro all help, and some good effects can be had by inserting the picture as an image texture on a cube or grid in a 3D modeler, especially if adding lighting effects are desired.

Sometimes you can find an owner of a particular machine in a pinball website and with luck he might be happy to take the pictures you need.

Yea, I've made tables before from low quality images, this one has so much stuff that overhangs and covers the PF it would be nice to have a clean image of it.

the playfield shot sucks but that is the best one I can find
Thanks, but I've got all the ones from IPDB and a few other web pages I found, I think I've got all the images that are out there on the web.

Used to be lots of people with private collections of images, hopefully some of them will stop by here once in a while.

    where is the unapprove option, anyway? is that a super mod thing or something from the admin panel?

    oh wait, I see it

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    true, but they could also be invisible to users and perhaps allow the category to be removed
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Don't know, do know that if you delete a category all files would also be removed so that's bad,

  • @ Ike Savage:
    seems like we discussed it in some length at one point and came up with the current arrangement, but I don't have a strong opinion on that stuff. the one thing I do like is that I can clear out weaker tables from the main section without deleting them

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Sounds fine to me Ike, can't disagree with ya!
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    is it that you want to declutter more of the resources section?
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No it's fine
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    also, just to be clear-- the issue with "unapprove" is that you don't know if the table actually gets deleted from the server, right? AFAIK I have no way of seeing where the tables actually lie on the server, so it's something I can't test effectively
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    They wouldn't get deleted from the server, I don't think.

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Can we get back to the subdomain folders/files, the uploads.pinballnirvana.com folder is where uploads would need to be, just wondering what might need to be deleted..

  • @ Ike Savage:
    do you mind a phone call? probably easier to discuss, save some wear and tear on my hands, too
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No problems Ike, can't talk now but will try and set this up.

  • @ Ike Savage:
    okay, well let me know if you need space cleared up across the torrent area, because I have some ideas

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Yeah, noticed a .zip file contains many versions etc..

    Uploading a 1.34 GB Pink Floyd The Wall zip file via ftp to test...

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    The file is actually on the server in FP originals but isn't public.

    Um, so, Hi!. What did I miss? (he says as though he ducked to the toilet while the adds were on...)
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Hi guys, I«m asking here as it might have a quicker response. How can I check the ball size used by authors in FP? or at least the default size if anyone knows. Thanks
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    Most FP authors use the default size and don't know how to use BAM to alter it.
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    I think it may be 13.8 though
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Thanks. But while I've waited I've looked at a ring around a ramp in LotR that's 26mm so i figure the ball being 24mm. A bit short of real life ball size if that's so.
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    of course I could've used my brains earlier and create a table with some carefully spaced guides and check that the ball is in fact 27mm in diameter. Peeking at fp.exe and bam.dll and there's no way to change this. you can set the colour and the id to track it though (but that's known)
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    With Bam custom ball coding you can create balls of any size...see my titorial
