Trapshoot_v1.0

Shockman

appropriate at this time
Also up at YoYo Games with my other games.

Some of the latest changes,
- trophies display improved.
- more light to ground and score light.
- fixed a bug that did not have player 2 shooting doubles.
- added speed setting. 3 speeds for clay, set in the operator menu.
- in a two player game, team 2 shoots the same trapbox, and clay speed as team 1 did. But not delay time.
- timing for point award display improved.
- game light on gameplay screen.
- bullet disappears at correct place.

Trapshoot v1.3

I fixed a couple of bugs at game end that I found.

- Added another hit animation option, selected in the settings menu (F5) and saved. 1 for hit type is the original one frame hit graphic. 2 is a new partial based hit effect from smoking the clay to chipping it.
- Added bullet speed adjust. Now every element that was adjustable in the original is in. (Play to score, number of trophies for award, clay speed and bullet speed).Plus one player allowable misses, and Alpha level of background in relation to a black field.
- Added 6 levels of brightness adjust. This has a couple of uses like balancing with ambient light level, and for adjusting the off light visual. The range is set to the off lights, from virtually gone to quite obvious. You can adjust the levels on any screen, but the level you set only on the settings page (F5) is saved.
- Better light size and placement.
- Applause sound level lowered.
- Made escape key exit to title page instead of quit game. On title page it will quit game.

Excellent! Better than the original! The only thing thats missing is the "roar" of the crowd as oppsed to the applause when getting a trophy.Still great though, thanks Shockman!

now if only you could have little Mitt Romneys sailing by
so we could shoot at them instead of the clay pigeons I'd be a happy camper

I just downloaded it from YoYo and got version b7. It might have been a cache issue but I re-uploaded it.

The latest is just called Trapshoot in the zip and the file inside and says 1.3 at the top of the info screen and the setting menu will match the pic above.

Itchigo, I like the original sound too, but could not find anything. I don't know how to rip sounds from youtube videos and that the only place I have heard it.

faralos, Are you asking for a import feature? just kidding as I trust you were as well.

It still has one issue, besides the graphic artifacts that remain, and that is the roll-over. The score will go over 99 in a one player game and not fit. If I can get a more authentic crowd sound, and fix the graphics, I will fix that as well.

I attached a crowd cheer I edited from a good golf shot. I think it would do.

I'm working on what I hope will be the last version. I'm only going to clean up the worse of the graphic artifacts, but I have replace the crowd cheer, and have changed one player scoring. Now in a one player game you play to the same points as set for a two player game and are given that number divided by 4 (rounded down if needed) as the number of misses allowed and will play to whichever comes first.

Thank you sir!! I really appreciate it! I showed this to my dad who told me the reason there are no more good wall games is because of the FCC and the frequencies involved.

It's not necessary, as there was no bugs to fix, but I made some changes after playing this solely as a player (I thought).

I added another chunk, more particles, and they rain down more, but mostly worked on sound.

- Subtle sound for trap boxes and shooter lights.
- Stereo
- A new applause sound that works like this. Clapping, then random inserts of whistles and a 'yea' and various time, or omit either. With only three sounds you may not hear the same cheer in a game. This is like the original which used random overlay of the whistling over the applause.

Another reason you rarly see these any more is the life span. They were very thin with heat emitting lights that would render the screen yellowed and brittle.

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

    true, but they could also be invisible to users and perhaps allow the category to be removed

    Don't know, do know that if you delete a category all files would also be removed so that's bad,

    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

    Sounds fine to me Ike, can't disagree with ya!

    is it that you want to declutter more of the resources section?

  • @ 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.

    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..

    do you mind a phone call? probably easier to discuss, save some wear and tear on my hands, too

    No problems Ike, can't talk now but will try and set this up.

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

    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
