I only tested this version for someone else not realising it was up for this comp. I don't like how it plays, prefer the VP9 (not Physmod) version. Anyway, I'll have to have a game when I get a chance. Played Dedrok's real machine, the physics on that are heaps better [emoji38]

Yeah
I found it unplayable.
Will wait to get the new card in.
But sounds like why bother.

This table plays really poorly in my opinion. I'd love for someone to redo the physics. The shots from the flippers are wrong, the ball is too heavy, the ball shooting out from the fish is too fast. I found it really frustrating to play.

The top left gate lets the ball loop too when it shouldn't, like on plunge sometimes.

yeah, I agree.

the first two games of the comp aren't really showing VP10 at it's best...

Yeah but it looks like a half-arsed vp9 conversion.

Guess I'm a bit spoiled by the amazing releases recently ? I don't know why you'd want to play this earlier stuff ;)

I picked it with the expectation that it would come up midway through the competition and would be a bit of a break from some of the other tables due to its quirky nature. That wasn't to be, and I enjoy playing it anyway, so it's fine by me.

This table plays pretty poor, gets my blood boiling playing it, but no good gofers plays fine, might not be as flash as some of the releases in the last few months, but don't lump it with this build.

I told Wob today that I'm surprised you haven't mentioned that you like the Soprano's as our taste rarely seems to align. :lol

I actually like the Soprano's pinball, I just really don't like this version. I much prefer playing whatever the VP9 version is that I have installed (I know it isn't the physmod one)

The physics on mine were great. (real pin)
But take to steps left and they are crap.

I actually enjoy the table layout, hopefully get the chance to play a real one in the wild. Normally I try not to complain as the author put a lot of hard work in, however normally I wouldn't play play either.

I was watching the vpl9 thread otherwise I would have nominated a few [emoji22]

What are you using for your playfield ? That is an astoundingly clear and nice image for this game which is older now in VP10 (2015) - looks like a really nice build too for your cab.

I've got a decent TV as my playfield (40" Samsung Series 6, albeit 8 years old) which is normally great for everything but I get nothing like this kind of image for this game on mine :(

It's a Soniq E43V15C. Got it as a clearance from jb. Picture is decent but looks better in the photo than in real life.

Frustrating as shit. Ball over the apron in this game during multiball. It made the other 2 balls unplayable as they were stuttering terribly. Had to add ball to trough to get game finished.

How do you add a ball? I had heaps of great games end because of that.

It adds it to the trough so the ROM thinks a ball drained but this table (for me at least) stutters really bad once I have done it so it is unplayable. I guess the ball is doing some funky doo-dah's off the screen.

To add a ball to the trough, press 'B' on the keyboard and it will ask you to confirm that you want to, click yes and it's done.

Have some work to do on it first re: design, so then I'll change it. Good timing as I just started to port my build over to vpx yesterday.
Just need to grab all my blueprints first.
I know what I'm doing tonight now.

Was gonna do it last night but had other stuff to do.
Am heading to the shed soon to do it.
At least I won't have to play it for long. Then I'll start to fix it.
