Shooting Star Jr., 1934 by Daval for VPX

Another never before released table for VPX. With four weeks of redrawing this one came out near perfect. Shoot a ball into the star, then shoot a ball in the top hole to fire the ball in the star across the playfield for bigger points. FOUR table slopes and an option to turn off the tilt mechanism. Enjoy!

Question: when you flip the PF art, do you start by taking it from digital to vector?

I change nothing. I use GIMP 2.10 and MS Paint to do all my graphical work. Sounds lame but for me it saves time and I can take the time to make the images look just about right. I never use vector imagery; I keep the original image and work with it. I know, I'm absolutely nuts for doing it this way but I think the graphics come out just about perfect. Hope that answers your question and if not, just post back to me.

Gotcha.

Yeah, I can understand that. Doubtless you have a nice bag of editing tricks at this point.

Using GIMP 2.10 is pretty much ALL of my bag of tricks really. It can do just about everything I need with transparency, shrinking images, blending and just about all I ever need and along with MS Paint I can get most images done and looking just about right.


ANYONE can use both of these programs to make some photo realistic play field images if they just take the time and have the patience to do so. It took me a few years to learn how to juggle both programs to do what I needed but they work great with each other.

    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!

  • @ 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

  • @ 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..

    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...)

  • @ 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
