Loserman tribute project
With permission, this is a project to share some selected tables of the late Jeff Whitehead here at PN. Big thanks to @xenonph for various fixes & tweaks, and to @jpsalas for the LUT script, which allows the quick lighting adjustments. Both the originals (linked) and tweaked versions are being shared here.

If any of Jeff's collaborators object to their work being shared across this project, please let us know so we can remove the table in question. We plan on releasing some more of these if all goes well. --Ike

Additional notes:
- In addition to the "standard" keys (typically "1" to start game and "5" for coin), I've added "3" as another coin input and "4" for coin and auto-start game (like I recall the dime slots generally were) to simulate 3 coin slots.
- When game is not in progress, holding down left flipper for about 3-5 seconds will bring up the options menu. Left flipper selects item, right flipper changes option.
- I've also included shadows for the ball and flippers. If you want to turn them off look for these lines at the beginning of the script, and change to "false" as desired:

Const ShadowFlippersOn = true
Const ShadowBallOn = true
XenonPH's tweaks v1.01:​
- Added modified version of JP's LUT script, toggled with the Buy-In / "2" Key. Note: tapping this key will step the table through 12 different lighting levels.
- Fixed Horseshoe ball not moving problem.
- Added material to side rails to get rid of pink color.
- Raised brightness on Pop Bumper lights from 6 to 20.
- Raised brightness on playfield insert lights from 2 to 8
