So as i was d/ling tables and updating FP and BAM i must have done something that i don't know how to turn off.

Everytime i launch a table right after it loads and the table comes into focus i see a blur of text that says "Loading: Ball shadow" or something of the sort. it happens really quick but its on every table. Can this be turned of? i tried downloading and installing a vanilla version of FP+BAM but its the same result.

Help!

that message is normal and is just the custom balls being loaded from the bam/ball directory .
If you want to remove the message delete the directory , but then you won't have custom balls available when you press the "n" (next ball) and "p"( previous ball) keys on the keyboard.

I have about 20 custom balls to choose from...

I have 227 custom balls in my folder. If you don't want custom balls, you can delete the following folder and that message won't appear anymore.

C:\Games\Future Pinball\BAM\balls

You can download custrom balls here:

That is Slamt1lt's new Star Trek's table that uses shadow maps. The first time you load the table, it will count the shadow maps and save the files to a subfolder in your BAM folder. After the first load, it will just say that is is loading shadow maps and then start. This is normal also. Not many tables use shadow maps so this will be a rare occurrence until the feature is used more.
