@krusso222,
Thanks for the upload. :)

Wanted to point out a couple things:

- It would be helpful if you could add the screenshot as an attachment. Right now we only have the resource icon (like a thumbnail or avatar), and of course, it's tiny.

- Also, helpful if you could change the prefix to the VP version instead of "Data East." I assume this is a VPX table?

- Feel free to add "Data East" and year right in the name, after "Maverick."

These kinds of things are also pretty self-explanatory if you look at the other tables in the resource area:

Thank you again!

Did a little more research on this and decided to take the table out of circulation for the time being.

From what I understand, the PhysMod series 1-5 were unofficial test versions of VP9 with improved physics. Evidently they were not meant for cross-compatibility with other versions of VP, be it the other members of the PhysMod series, or VP9, or VPX. That's kind of a problem.

@krusso222,
Hate to say it, but TBH I don't think it's a great idea that we host such tables, or other unofficial VP fork builds. For one thing, we've worked hard to create an efficient tagging system to encompass the whole of our VP table versions, and for another, we'd need to create more prefixes just for specific, rare-ish tables like these.

But just in general, a mod like this isn't really necessary, anymore. IMO far better to update the table for VPX, with its bunch of added features (such as physics), where with a single selection box you can change FS---> DS and back again, anyway.

Feel free to change my mind, of course. I certainly don't know the PhysMod VP test versions very well.

    I was afraid to do this but I believe if you unapprove files, they just are like a soft delete, still there but not visible..

    you're talking about FTP on uploads.PN still?

    No, the archived category in resources..

    I could see removing some resources and/or resource folders, if that helps. that VP PhysMod stuff is probably not useful any more, etc
    Were you talking about the ftp subdomain? :wave-nerd:

    so you're were talking about the archived originals? on the positive side, that stuff probably doesn't take up much

    where is the unapprove option, anyway? is that a super mod thing or something from the admin panel?
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    oh wait, I see it
    Quote
  • @ 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.
    Quote
  • @ 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..
    Quote
  • @ 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

    Yeah, noticed a .zip file contains many versions etc..

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