Hi Gimli
Had a look. Using magnets doesn't work for me, and you reversed them. Using as a example, at contact point .3 the ball should head far more to the right on a cradled ball and a quick flick and then move more vertical at .4 and beyond. (Remember, bally flippers which has a far more sensitive base while Williams had a more sensitive tip of the flippers)

I instead had a idea of modifying my blues flippers by using it to "push" the ball more vertically. Trying it out now, the only problem right now is getting the smaller flipper to move a lot faster, as the angle sweep is a lot more than before. It sort of works, but a lot of code to work out yet.

Because I am no longer on the internet and have such limited time, I lost the place here that gave a example for setting acceleration charts for each individual flipper, so if you know where it is or have code could you post here. This would be a simple fix until the time Rav gives us the code we need to manually adjust the Ball angle and speed on the fly, so we can hard code ball behavior as we need it to make some of these tricks doable without weird solutions that really shouldn't work.

If you dont know, fine. I've a second solution that's even more half-assed. It will be a far more consistent shot than your magnets, and it wont have the ball speeding up while doing it. It wont look right, but hopefully it should do what I want it to do

BAM update. v245

https://www.ravarcade.pl/files/bam-setup.exe
https://www.ravarcade.pl/files/BAM_v1.4-245.zip
https://www.ravarcade.pl/files/BAM-OpenVR.zip

Bug fixes:
- sometimes BAM can crash on Pause/High Score if all chars of textfield in nvRAM is used. For example when nvSpecialHighScoreText text is 16 chars long.
- shadow map generation error: some missing objects on shadow map if table was run with FP light system (in most cases missing ramps, like in VUK demo table)
- shadow map generation error: removed shadow casted by glass of flasher.
- shadow map generation: in BAM menu limit for Spotlight range of flasher is changed from 10.0 to 1000.0

What is the change you made for Gimli? I remember saving a new BAM.dll so I could play his IJ table. I noticed IJ still plays so the change must be there.

I think it was to do with camera angle coding for Bam.desktop
and bam.cabinet modes coexisting and recognizing eachother without crashing on desktop, cabinet or VR systems

Rav always includes previous features in new releases so we should be good

Rav,

I think you need to post the changes made on version 250.

Great work as always Rav! I know many people were hoping for this.

Caligula has taken on one hell of a task to convert VPX to OpenGL to make VPVR work. While it won't look as nice as FP BAM Open VR, it still can look great and is a huge achievement.

IS there a way to resize the VPX playfield like you can with BAM on FP?

I got it working and it works great but cant figure this out!

Sorry if its a NOOB question!
