Buck Rogers (Gottlieb 1980) Sound MOD v2.0a
IPD No. 392

I first would like to thank BorgDog for giving me permission to make this sound mod. I would also like to thank him for making a great table!! I also would like to thank everyone who contributed to this table including, Hauntfreaks and Sindbad!!
They put in alot of time and work on the original table, and it is appreciated!! So if you like this mod, I would encourage you to thank the original author of the table, as I have only made a few changes!
Check Original Table download page for more important info.

I also would like to thank Allknowing2012 and Gtxjoe for teaching me how to add timers to script.

I also would like to thank DJRobX, STAT, Gtxjoe, and nFozzy, for helping me shorten my StopSounds and PlaySounds script commands.
(They each wrote out an example, and between them all, I was able to figure it out!! BIG THANKS!!!)

I would also like to thank Scottacus for all the help with the TILT sound effects script!! BIG THANKS!!

I also would like to thank Steve "Slydog43" for which these VPX mods would not be possible!!

Version 1.11a (Released on 10-31-2017 at VPinball, VPUniverse and VPForums)
Stopped some timers that were still activated after pressing player1 start.
Added coin sound effect to 3 key.

Version 1.1a
Noticed "Drain" sound effect was missing from sound manager, so I added it to sound manager from another table.
(It was hard to catch this as you could only tell after last ball drain.)

Also fixed script so coin is heard on coin insert.(There was not a coin sound effect named "coin" that the script was calling for. So I just changed to "Coin3" as there were 2 different coin sound effects already in the sound manager.)

Scottacus helped fix the script for DT view objects to disappear when in FS mode.
(If you ran FS view without B2s, the objects didn't disappear as per Scotts info.)

I added GI lights to Buck Rogers Logo and pic on left side of DT backdrop.

Scottacus came up with working TILT sound effects script!! BIG THANKS!! (I will learn this if it kills me!!)
1 of 4 sound effects will be played when you TILT table.

I Added 133 sound effects triggered by events.
All of these sound effects are played through backglass instead of table per Vogliadicanes info.
There are 4 background music sound effects triggered by plunger.(From actual Movie.)
There are 2 other background music sound effects that are not triggered by plunger.
1 is triggered by hitting upper kicker. (1 in 16 chance of triggering it.) Twiggy says "Get Down Groovy" and a groovy song is played.(One from actual movie.)
The other background music sound effect is only played during attract mode after losing a game.
(This is the song that was played at end of tv show. It sounds corny, but true Buck Rogers fans will appreciate it.)

You will need to hit F6 to bring up the Dipswitch Menu, and turn off ROM scoring sounds.
(Or use the nvram I included with download.) Copy the nvram to your nvram folder where Visual Pinball is installed.

Anonymous-- that's a well-known issue that doesn't actually relate to this specific table. Did you try contacting the dev for help on the matter?

Because chances are, I suspect he would have been happy to help you work it out, if you'd merely asked instead of trashing the table via a bad rating.

This an awesome table and is a 5 star table that brings me back to my childhood and watching the tv show. However, I give 2 stars as the scoring won't work without having to disable b2s as disabling b2s in VPX is global which effects some of my other tables. Luckily I am able to use the b2s for scoring.
