Primer written by shiva

shivaEngine2 is a game engine intended for use with Visual Pinball Beta 6.0 and above. Though there are other game engines available, shivaEngine2 is aimed at supplying beginners and intermediate users with a flexible, easy to use, and very powerful backbone to run your pinball game table. SE2 is designed around the styles and capabilities of the 1977 to 86 Williams Electronics games, and can be used for translations of the Williams games, as well as give a professional look to original creations. The original shivaEngine is a more basic system, and is included with the full install of Visual Pinball, as one of the 2 example tables. The file name is "tutorial.vpt", and it's encouraged that you look and review that table first.

SE2 is based on shivaEngine Build 1_8, released in January 2002 and written by shiva and Cold1, with additional thanks to Destruk, Black, 4Eyes, and various other authors for code used within the script. shivaengine was part of the full Visual Pinball install for 15 years, and a sample table was one of two games included. Some examples were taken from other test scripts, with their authors un credited in that script.

    @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.
