Here's the table nomination thread for VPGL7.

Each player can nominate up to 5 tables that can play both VP9 and VP10

All nominations will then be pooled and one game selected at random to be played by everyone for 2 weeks(except 1,2,3,9,10 which will be shoved intogether with other weeks), with a total of 10 tables to be played, ill update this thread with start ad finish dates.

I am not sure how many can play on VP10, if it means people can't wouldn't VP9 be better?

I currently don't have a cab but I do have TV's set up on the dining room table for testing. I might get some games in.

I like the fact that previously played games can be nominated as there are some I missed out on by not joining in with the VPGL earlier (in my defense I didn't know about it)

depends on the majority and on how many players there is?

I've chosen three table that are in VP9 & VPX (i assume thats VP10)
Genesis (Premier 1986)
Pharaoh (Williams 1981)
Laser Ball (Williams 1979)

I guess that's Americas Most Haunted out then... I like the idea of nominating games that can be played in both 9+10

I have it on VP9, but Dedrok doesn't have it.

If Dedrok needs tables, I am happy to grab them and give them to him.

I think AMH is only vp10

I'll nominate

Demolition man (VP9/VP10)
Abra ca Dabra (VP9)
Joker Poker (VP9/VP10)

Edit: I vote to keep nominations as is IE, VP9 or VP10. making it exclusive to a version is only going to make it difficult for some people.

AMH is definitely available on both. I have it on VP9.

Yes but the VP9 version is a desktop table, the old version by shoopity. Full Screen/cab is VP10 only I think, at least I have never seen a VP9 full screen version, could you post a link ?

I'd nominate it, but the ultradmd stuff is a bit of a PITA to setup but the game is so good.

I'll see if I can find a link. I downloaded it as a cab version (I've never converted a table and I had it before I downloaded VPX).
I agree with the UltraDMD being a PITA.

Maybe I was wrong and you were right Jed

I can't find a cab version but found the information below in the thread of the desktop version. I don't remember converting it, but maybe I did.

"As I've said in multiple places, you can make it Cabinet ready by changing the Backdrop settings to what you like. You can change them to:
12
45
60
270
1.35
1.9
1
-335
200
0

If you're unwilling/able to make the changes yourself, then yes, you'll have to wait." - Shoopity

I second the motion. A comp after silly season has died down would be cool.

I'm really loving the vpin after installing the tactile feedback pucks and it's getting more use than ever now...

i'm happy to put up some posts around the traps to promote the comp, see if we can get a bit of international interest. i reckon i could get at least a few more

Can we run tables for 2 weeks though with the overlap.
Last time I got too busy and missed games.

VP9 would be the best to go with, maybe with a side note of VP10?

Jed
8th December 2016, 10:14 AM
what about only tables that have versions in both vp9 + vp10 ?

last comp, there were some ordinary vp9-only tables coming up... don't reckon that helped with participation ?

obviously some tables play easier in vp9 cause of the old version of nudge, but the comp is just for fun...

I'd play VP10 every time though, it's just feels so much better, and looks the goods :)

skids
8th December 2016, 10:38 AM
That will do,
I am a pauper I don't have vp10 or nudge :)
Back to table nominations then.

Guys,

I've posted a call for players on the Visual PInball Addicts FB group.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/VPAddicts/

It's a great group/resource for VP heads. I know some of you here are already there (JAR) !

Dedrok

I just started playing on VPF again for fun. Game of the week and winner chooses next game.
Is mainly testing the new vpx tables but can play anything.

For this I'll choose
TOTAN
Triple Strike
Skate ball

I sure am there, after you pointed me to it... It is a great place to keep up with all that is going on in VP. I have some catching up to do as far as tables but am still working on the build side of things.

At this stage I don't think I'll nominate any games, but I hope to have time to play.

far as recent table releases go, the quality stuff has been the new versions of Scared Stiff and Medieval Madness, been playing a bit of those plus the remixed Cactus Canyon and Theatre Of Magic.

Vp10 has been a boon for the DMD era pins but i would like to see more SS being given the vp10 treatment. The guys on MonsterBash Pincab who are the new maestros make tables based on votes cast on the website, and most people seem to vote for DMD era games. Not complaining though as they are making scratch build Indiana Jones next :) but still. sooo many great SS pins from the late 70's and early 80's stuck in vp9-land.

Is this happening? Dedrok has his cab running again so he can challenge the best, I have my new build playable (still work to be done, but it is completely playable) so I can fight for the wooden spoon.

Time to have some fun.

I'm keen to also fight for that spoon.

Wondering if someone could create a word doc or something similar of a simple walk through for setting up VP9 (and or VPX) desktop version in a ploy to attract more vpgl players?

VPForums has some good tutorials with videos, and they have incorporated a lot of the work into automatic installers now. Anyone interested should check the link below.

http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=tutorials&article=143

When I first started I found a 'visual pinball gigapack' torrent that contained hundreds of desktop tables and all the stuff I needed to get going, along with instructions. This pack is still out there on torrent sites, but I don't know how current they are any more.
