** Version 1.03 **

- 10 second ball save timers added to Iron Monger Multiball, Whiplash Multiball and War Machine Multiball.
- nudge escape when Iron Monger is up less frequent.
- added dynamic lighting effect to Iron Monger's cannon fire.

** Version 1.02 **

- HUD DMD and graphic reduced in size.
- When Iron Monger is up the ball will be launched back into play each time it's drained (excpet during Jericho, Do or Die and Bogey Mode). If the ball hits the left or right outlane first the ball will drain as normal.

There are 3 versions: PinCab (no gameroom) Desktop (full gameroom - disable 'render gameroom' in video options otherwise Moon Patrol and Donkey Kong will pop through the screnery!) and Lite which removes the movie clips, gameroom and backglass animation.

There are a few suprises in this version of the game. Let's just say when the Iron Monger is up, anything can happen. Be prepared!

Tips:

- During Nudge Escape, nudge as fast as you can. Iron Monger will drain your score the longer he holds you!

- The Skill Shot is the right spinner from launch. A carefully timed hit with the left flipper should get it everytime.

- In Desktop view, best to play the game with a static camera. During multiball the camera will only follow one ball and you'll drain very quickly. Unfortunately, FP doesn't have the ability to automatically switch the view for multiball (like Pinball FX2 does).

- The multipliers do not reset when the ball is lost so make these shots a priority for a massive end of round bonus (the current multiplier is shown on the left side of DMD).

Info
If you're having performance issues running this table, then hopefully some of these tips should help..

- If you have a dual-core processor, try unticking (or ticking) the 'Set Threading to Single Processor' in the Video Rendering Option menu. I have a dual core but have this set to a single thread.

- Make sure all other running programs, espcially Internet Browers, are closed before starting FP.

- In the Video Rendering Option menu (VRO), make sure the 'Hardware Lights to Use' is set to 0. This will make a massive difference to the table's performance.

- Lower the resolution of the game from 1920 x 1080 (for example) to 1280 x 720. Again, this will make a massive difference to the table's performance. Won't look as pretty though!

- Untick 'Render Ornaments' in the VRO. This will remove all the incidental stuff like screws and bolts from the table.

- Untick 'Mirror Playfield onto Ball' in the VRO. It looks good having this enabled but it can cost you valuable frame rate.

- Untick 'Playfield reflections' in VRO. This stops the table rendering objects twice, doubling the polygon count. Again, the table won't look as pretty but it will speed up the gameplay.

- DEFRAG your system. This will speed up your computer's performance, especially if you've never done it before. Regular DEFRAGS will keep you computer running smoothly.

- Untick 'Virtical Sync' in the VRO to add more performace. Not needed if you play in Static PinCab view. But in 3D mode you will notice an almost insignificant 'tearing' along the screen when this is disabled. Worth the extra FPS though.

- Antialising should ALWAYS be set to 0 in the VRO. Unless you own a 10 Grand rig! Also make sure your Graphics Card Utility hasn't sneakily set your Antialisng to anything other than 'off' as a default. Antialising smoothes the edges of the graphics and looks nice but the performance impact is costly. Avoid.

- Last but not least. Upgrade your Graphics Card! You should really only pay about $40 (£30) for a card that can run FP smoothly. Forget the GTX500 or whatever they are...you're running FP, not Crysis 2! I own a Geforce 9600 GT which cost me £25 2 years ago and it works like a charm.

Keys:

When the table first starts, you will be asked to make your music selection. Use the RIGHT FLIPPER to cycle through the song list and then press the START button to confirm your selection. The table will then proceed to normal Attract Mode. When you're ready to play insert a coin (if you have no credits) and press the START button again.

If you've chosen an AC/DC track, the game will start immediately. If you've chosen the Movie Score track the game will power up first (as Tony puts on the suit).

At the end of the game, press the RIGHT FLIPPER again to change the music choice and press the START button to confirm.

Special Key 1: Cycles the Backglass Artwork (only when the game is in play)
Special Key 2: Cycles the photos on shelf

    @JonPurpleHaze, Fleet Foxes are an American indie folk band formed in Seattle, Washington in 2006. The band is known for their lush harmonies, intricate arrangements, and poetic lyrics. Their music draws on a wide range of influences, including folk, rock, and baroque pop.

    The band's sound is characterized by intricate vocal harmonies, acoustic guitars, and a variety of other instruments such as mandolin, piano, and various percussion. Their lyrics often explore themes of nature, spirituality, and the passage of time.

    Fleet Foxes gained critical acclaim with their self-titled debut album in 2008, which was followed by the equally well-received albums "Helplessness Blues" in 2011 and "Crack-Up" in 2017. The band has developed a dedicated fanbase and continues to be praised for their unique sound and songwriting abilities.
