Ok... I continue on this, even if... some days ago,I discovered that this version of VPX, is a MOD, on the real table of "gottlieb rock",by JPsalas,it was a surprise to me, to say the least shocking.

question, does anyone know, what is this?DOUBLE SCORING.... I can't understand what it is

A themed pinball of singer MJ, and it fascinated me, and seeing the construction and the beautiful textures, it caught my attention, when I saw it on VpForum.org.,but I didn't think it was a Mod...so probably after this I will do the real version, I think I can do it.

here is a small update of MJ table

Looks like a mode indicator to show that you're currently scoring 2x the normal rate, likely based on something you've previously accomplished on the table.

Since Gottlieb pulled their manuals from the IPDB, maybe the easiest thing is simply to play the VPX version and note the behavior! Also, we have a version VP8 version here, too:

for now I play on MJ, by vpx version,but it flashes for 3/5 seconds and I can't see what happens
ok, but then it's the same thing as x2?

example

200 points x2=400...x3=600,,,etc,etc

but double scoring does the same thing of x2? or double all your current score ?I mean, if I have 100,000 points, with double scoring I get 200,000?

did you write black rock?

if yes ... how did you do it, i tried your suggestions but i can't do like this

IMO it would be very unusual for a feature like that to double your existing score. Much more likely is that it's a timed mode, and any points you score with a live ball are instantly doubled until the timer runs out.

When I get a chance... maybe in the next couple days... I could possibly test this for you to confirm.

I did not. I simply pasted in the table link, which was:
Code:

So that's another case of the site software (XF) automatically formatting a link.

Thanks again...Nic

Thanks... if you want to try MJ, here it is for vpx
now that i notice it, from the rom, i had to understand that it was a mod:eek: an excellent one I must say.

Here is my first attempt ever, to move the toy, in this case in a bulb, (FP cannot move the bulbs) as a miniplayfield
thanks to friend Bob (aka @Gimli ) who suggested to me how to move a model from one point to another
thanks to the "calculate center" function, it is now much easier to create a miniplayfield

I have always asked Rav in the past (I think 5 times) for a much simpler system to move a model, and I remember very well the day he released this new function, but at that time I had not understood very well what this function was, and finally NOW have understood it.

this is the first step, now as a second step I would like to reproduce the movement that makes the in FP mode, in
Miniplayfield mode, i.è to make it rotate on itself, the problem is that I don't know how to do it.....

In FP, only with this it is possible to rotate it MJ.RotateXZ 500,
but I think that in mini playfield it is very different to reproduce that rotation movement

I hope someone can help

Ok,I think I have found a solution, to make the model run continuously, maybe @Gimli, could you confirm if this is the only solution? or is it possible with another method?

Sub TimerRotateMJ_Expired()
TimerRotateMJ.set false
RotateMJ=RotateMJ + 1
If RotateMJ > 4 then RotateMJ =1
If RotateMJ= 1 then
Call MiniPlayField_0.MoveTo( 346, 302.67, 60, 0, 0, 90, 1, 0.250)
TimerRotateMJ.set true, 250
End if
If RotateMJ= 2 then
Call MiniPlayField_0.MoveTo( 346, 302.67, 60, 0, 0, 180, 1, 0.250)
TimerRotateMJ.set true, 250
End if
If RotateMJ= 3 then
Call MiniPlayField_0.MoveTo( 346, 302.67, 60, 0, 0, 270, 1, 0.250)
TimerRotateMJ.set true, 250
End if
If RotateMJ= 4 then
Call MiniPlayField_0.MoveTo( 346, 302.67, 60, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0.250)
TimerRotateMJ.set true, 250
End if
End sub

ok,thanks
so only with a timer, and 4 lines of movements can you just rotate a model? with a single line is not possible like that in FP?

You could have less lines ...

SpinWild.set true 250
Sub SpinWild_expired
Minplayfield_0.time = .25
Miniplayfield_0.rotation.z = Miniplayfield_0.rotation.z + whatever
End Sub

sorry , but I don't understand this + whatever

what should I put? a sound or "sub"

without this + whatever, I get an error

Sub SpinWild_expired
Minplayfield_0.time = .25
Miniplayfield_0.rotation.z = Miniplayfield_0.rotation.z
what should I add here
End Sub

Whatever means a number that will rotate in 250 mseconds (speed of rotation)

Put any number for example 45

You can put
If miniplayfield_0.rotation.z = 360 then miniplayfield_0.rotation.z = 0: SpinWild.set False

I had a similar dilemma when I added the new real rotating beacon lighting to F-14 U-Pro PinEvent. I ended up with this.

Code:
Sub BeaconFlasher_Timer_Expired
            Select Case MovingBeaconLight
                Case 0: MovingBeaconLight = MovingBeaconLight+1
                '                              DstX     DstY     DstZ     RotX     RotY     RotZ    Scale     Time
                Call MiniPlayField_1.MoveTo(    250,   511.7,   300,       0,       0,       1,       4,       0)
                '                              DstX     DstY     DstZ     RotX     RotY     RotZ    Scale     Time
                Call MiniPlayField_1.MoveTo(    250,   511.7,   300,       0,       0,     180,       4,       0.5)
                Case 1: MovingBeaconLight = 0
                '                              DstX     DstY     DstZ     RotX     RotY     RotZ    Scale     Time
                Call MiniPlayField_1.MoveTo(    250,   511.7,   300,       0,       0,     181,       4,       0)
                '                              DstX     DstY     DstZ     RotX     RotY     RotZ    Scale     Time
                Call MiniPlayField_1.MoveTo(    250,   511.7,   300,       0,       0,     360,       4,       0.5)
            End Select
End Sub

thanks terry and bob.

Looks like a great recreation for FP! Thanks for doing this Wild!

thanks mark....
in reality this is a mod, the version of vpx, it is a mod of the "rock" table by gottlieb, made by JPsalas for vpx,(so it's fair to give him credit too ) and that marty2, has modified, it is also good.

in fact this my version of FP, is coming out very well, I added many references on MJ, in vocal phrases, and sounds, I also included 7 music, 5 on "rock" guitar, and 2 on "relaxing" guitar, really very beautiful.

the rules are very simple, (but not in terms of scripts) since they are based on gottlieb's "rock" table, but it's fun to play it .

this table will be my first exclusive for PN, so I hope this table will please you, soon I will publish it .

regards
