Gimli submitted a new resource:

Williams Rat Race 1983 - using BAM to Recreate and update Williams Rat Race for desktop, cabinet and VR

Rat Race Version 1 by Wild and Gimli
Thanks to Ravarcade for BAM !


Wild created the table build and some of the coding( lighting and sounds) for this table more than a year ago.

I coded the game play and the mechanics of the tilting table.
I added some music ( from Crash Bandicoot) and a Rat Model (Ratger Hauer) for fun.
I also added Polygames's VR room environment.

This game requires version 348 or higher of BAM
pressing either Special1 or Special2 key will rotate the table so you can...

@xenonph needed to run FP “ as administrator “ to get this table to run
 
To be clear, I had to update BAM. I downloaded new BAM, copied new BAM folder over the old BAM folder, and overwrote when asked.
I still got the Meditation Error after that.
So I right clicked on the BAM shortcut on desktop, and went to Properties, Compatibility, and checkmarked "Run as Administrator".
Meditation Error disappeared, and I was able to play this awesome remake!!
Thanks for sharing this!!
I also agree about using mouse, as it seems easier than the arrow keys!!
Thanks again!!
Your work is appreciated!!
Carry on.

Thanks for the feedback !
There are some bugs I notice after level 5 that I am fixing and I have some ideas to make it more challenging in later levels
 
Wild may wish me to revise this game as time goes on , but I thought I would release it here for others to try.
No problem @Gimli ,I'm glad you finally picked up this project where we left it.
I certainly don't remember in which point or part we left it, I'm talking about gameplay, script, and above all construction, but I read above that there are other bugs to be corrected, if you want we could complete it.

Sure
We are in the middle of house renovation so I won’t have much time for a couple of months
