hello,

I've found a code in a visual pinball that emulate the sound of a rolling ball very well!
So i've translated the code to use BAM in futur pinball.
But unfortunately futur pinball don't support panning but it works very well !!!!

here is a demo table.

Smoke you are totally insane !!!! :shock: :shock:
Wow!!!
That sound is perfect!!

Using "xBAM_BallCloseTo" command for assigning sounds to Balls is a great idea.

I use the xBAM_BallCloseTo to assign objects to invisible balls...but I never thought of using sounds that way

Do you have to disable the sounds during multiball?


Very cool

I agree with Gimli. This is really cool! The tables I have played that have this sound using triggers don't really sound very authentic. This works much better.

You should post this on the following topic. We're trying to put together a list of BAM functions and commands:

viewtopic.php?f=86&t=6569

If you know of any other codes, you might add them as well, like the ones you used to create Tales of the Arabian Nights.

Great work from smoke, but I have to say that sound rolling is just good for good old EM (or early SS). For later pinballs, you don't just ear ball rolling (except maybe at ball launch) because music, animations, ... And I play a lot real pinballs.
But, great work indeed!

the code might be handle multiball but the sound will be associated with the fastest ball.

you can tune the maximum volume (volNormLevel const) of the ball for modern pinball so you will notice the sound less but still here to add some realism.

here is a new version because i forgotto add an extra line in drain_hit to handle destroyed ball.

the code was inpisred by the one written by JPSalas for a visual pinball table

Hi Smoke

Just having a look at the code right now, seems easy enough. Are you going to be working on the Ball shadow that VPX uses as well?

Nice :D

Thanks smoke

This works great, I tried it with Dracula.

I was wondering, would be possible for Rafal to add it as a BAM addon.
This way it would be a feature that would work with all tables new and old.

Have it part of bam , no end user scripting
under Addons

just an On\Off toggle switch
and a volume setting
maybe select a rolling sound out of a set of predefined sounds
