    .....and here's where we have our first minor hurdle of the tournament.

    The version I am running is Fast Draw VP9 FS 1.0.1 by JPSalas, which at the time I installed it on my PC was the default Visual Pinball version of Fast Draw. Problem is, he modded it from the VP8 version to run the ROM from
    Amazon Hunt so it was effectively an SS rather than an EM. This brought about a change in the scoring as the SS version uses 7 digit scoring in the UVP.

    So unless everyone runs this version, those of us who do will cream everyone else!!

    There is now a DirectB2S version (as of 10 days ago)which apparently goes back to the original scoring once again, however I'm yet to adopt DirectB2S in my cabinet and I'm not really keen to go messing around putting a second version of the same table on my current cab.

    If I'm the odd one out then I'll either sit this one out or bite the bullet and start messing around with DirectB2S, but firstly I think it needs to be decided which is the correct VP9 version of the table to use in Cabinet mode.

    Sorry for the storm in a teacup!

      Hmmm - good pickup.

      As long as most can run the 7 digit version then I don't see an issue.

      Can anyone not run the 7 digit version ?

          I don't think I have this table on my cab yet. Perhaps you choose another table to allow people to sort out getting the same version of this table up and running. ie. decide which version we will go with.
          Personally I'd like to stick with the newer DirectB2S tables.

          Ozstick: You need to try out the new DirectB2S - some of the backglasses are amazing.

            OK first up, that said I'd say this table could be clocked on a really good game...

            Love the added background music.

              Agree on the db2s - I was really chuffed to see db2s backglasses for Joker Poker and Genie released amongst heaps of others in the last week or so. Genie especially is a masterpiece!

              I reckon we should go with the SS version of Fast Draw. It's available for desktop, and full screen. Quite a few are playing on desktop - so going only db2s tables would exclude too many people from playing.

                      Never really played the older EM machines. Quite good fun though.

                        Well I spent most the weekend on a new Vpin build, from custom built and fairly crappy MDF Frankencab, to Judge Dredd in a couple afternoons and nights..

                        I did not harm The Judge in any way... It is in still original condition....really happy with the nick and the colours on the boxes are still really vibrant. I'm a lifelong biker so I appreciate the side art bigtime. I drilled no holes and I am using all the original buttons it came with - coupled with some internally mounted microswitches + Ipac2 from [MENTION=14]OzStick[/MENTION], all I added was a digital plunger which fit perfectly in the launch button hole, and a coin button also in existing hole - swapped the launch button to the other side to use as game start, and also backlit the start button with a USB notebook light so it lights up nice.

                        I haven't done the Headbox yet - numbskulls delivered it without the mounting bolts. Anyway just wanted to get it operational so I didn't miss too much playtime plus the 22" 4:3 monitor I have been using as scoreboard now looks really dumb inside the enormous Dredd Headbox! So that's next on my agenda... Anyway a few pics in this post along with score.

                        Fast Draw - you can have a ball-tearing go then - nothing. My current score I got to 2.5 million on my first ball and thought - yes! but all over in about another million including a 20k ball As [MENTION=269]Foot[/MENTION] said those side drains can get you down but how satisfying it is to hit both 50k targets in the one shot. It's not the score but just the feeling Specs is pretty generous too. IS there an extra ball in this machine I don't recall seeing it.

                        I gotta say that I prefer the old EM's in Visual Pinball. The tables look cleaner, less chaos and lights, and it's what I grew up playing... which gives away my age I suppose.

                        Nice game.

                          Love playing the EMs, is the only reason I have FP installed. Oh, and I bumped up to 6M on the cab.

                            fastdraw v1.01 desktop

                            7,077,660

                            EDIT
                            What we should do, like I just found out by checking, is remove the existing nvram to another folder. This way using a fresh one guarantees all on the same settings. I normally do but forgot with this one.

                            So scratch the 7M and use this score

                            6,938,830 ....... seems alot easier to score .... darn last ball not a flip.



                            Here is fresh settings of new nvram ..... amazon hunt

                              I have to agree with some of the comments re EM tables. They used to look terrible in VP and FP was very much the way to go, as pretty much EVERY table looks simply awesome if FP.

                              What lets FP down big time is the physics, which are downright horrid - the ball floats around and it feels like you're playing pinball on the mood. Oddly though, most of the original tables were pretty much spot on, so I don't know what the story is there.

                              All that no longer matters with the addition of B2S into VP, as we're now seeing many of the later EMs in particular being given the full treatment and they are fantastic to look at and play. My current favourite EM is Abra-Ca-Dabra which I rate as one of the best tables done for VP. The best news is there's still a lot of EMs that have not been done yet so we'll continue to be spoilt by all these talented table authors.
