Future Pinball

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My Future Pinball 2000 table set, painstakingly imported each box cover added one at a time and each title renamed . Still needs about half clear logos and video snaps however,

hoping to crowdsource this with anyone interested , screenshots are ultrawide and showcase Launchbox color schemes (get premium folks). 110 gbs in total so far.

(-update- I've got a Future Pinball Starter Kit 2.6 gbs ready to go read further for details)

(added- top 30 Future Pinball Build 2.3gb 

                                https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HMpoAfGY12eLrP3KmNgBSf4IdRpx4xHU/view?usp=sharing

(coming soon -Top 30 with all art  5.2gbs, just add tables!)

There are quite a few clear logos at the link below, which pretty closely matches to the 719 I have in my collection:

https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/category/9-game-clear-logos/

I only keep one version (with few exceptions) of tables but I have backglass and desktop view screenshots of all 719, that I did manually from my tables.  So they all have same basic view and sizing.  Slowly adding in full table screenshots (~300 now) as well as docklets (~450) but got side tracked on getting Visual Pinball running.  I had intended to post the backglass and screen shots since don't plan on adding any more unique tables for FP.  So will try to post them this weekend. 735660925_AddamsFamilyThe(Bally1992)sc.thumb.png.8d8839c92dd32476eafd4fb848eea1b8.png1245279123_TheAddamsFamily.thumb.png.5d92cf5b3dd82d14e44871f40b4a4af7.png361413509_AddamsFamilyThe(Bally1992).thumb.png.b1b9200003d36ed4fdfe824610513afd.png2104988745_AddamsFamilyThe(Bally1992)full.thumb.png.5bef2cb9070dfadef819a14ae560e803.png

Thanks for the link, lots of clear logos I didnt have yet - huge time saver, thank you,

If I may ask do you set the gathered artworks as marquee, clear logo, box front etc.. in Launchbox?

 also how big is the entire collection art vids tables etc in total ? (Me wants!!)

Perhaps we collaborate and make the best set possible set for everyone ?

Anyone else might be interested in sharing the workload hit me up ,

also Visual Pinball - I want that !!  You get it up and running ?

I am likely weird in where put, but like to keep separate and it fits with the theme using with the first three being sort of the "minimum" set:

  1. Clear logo -  normal clear logo just like used for other games. 
  2. Screenshot Gameplay - desktop view gameplay screenshot  (like #3 above)
  3. Screenshot Title - I use the screenshot of the backglass with DMD, preferable the actual game  (like #1 above) , not the "real life" back glass. Those I put in Marquee but don't really use.
  4. Screenshot  Select- Didn't know where to put but wanted separate from Desktop screenshot so put the full table screenshots in this category (like #4 above).  The advantage of separate can always move to another category if change mind.
  5. Docklet - I use this as the "front box" (like #2 above)

Gameex.com has quite a lot of pinball media via their PinballX frontend (like Hyperspin, if want to use FTP have to pay nominal fee).  Pinsimdb.org is also pretty good for media, particularly for Future Pinball.

The problem with the Pinball media is that everyone does slightly different, particularly naming, then there are a zillion versions of tables (ultimate, ultimatum, slightly different version by other people).  That is why I just went for one table, typically most recent.  When started using BAM with FP, have to keep the chaos to minimum. 

Video wise still missing 200 out of the 700 total (~8 GIGs). Once I got done screen-shotting everything, decided to hold up on the videos since those take a lot of time and couldn't get the AHK automated script working quite right.

Visual Pinball is in my mind a bigger pain than Future Pinball and BAM, at least for casual desktop setups. I am only sticking with Visual Pinball X games simply so don't have to deal with all the others versions.  VP seems to cater a lot more to the folks with dedicated PB setups and has features that are useful for them.  But simple things like changing the view are more complicated than FP (just a function key in FP).  I have a two screen setup with the Backglass on the second monitor and works fine with FP and BAM since the backglass is intergral in a FP table. But most VP tables you have to use a separate backglass program and download BG file as well. They are cooler, since they allow flashing and animation but take more time to fiddle with.  I have about 50 setup and working now but suspect I am going to cherry pick ones that are not in FP set and leave at that since no sure want to bother with the +300 have waiting to sort through.

Still need to upload what I have here screenshot wise just didn't get to it this weekend.

-wall machine - I kept it simple (simply crazy) and went to PinSimDB.org and downloaded everything except for cabinet tables (they dont work on pc)

I think Raindog had a post explaining how to use an auto hot key script to make tables launch in LB (was two years ago ) you make the script in auto hot key then set autohotkey.exe to replace the Futurepinball.exe ( its already done up in my starter kit below)

                                                                                              

   I've just assembled a Future Pinball Starter Kit (FPSK) will save you literally months of time. All you need minus the tables and video snaps in a 2.6 gb package.

Included is the emulator all ready to go, game images, platform images and video, xml file and instructions and links etc .. you will still need to get the tables and video snaps

however download what you want and have launchbox remove what you don't (Tools/Scan for Removed Roms/Future Pinball..).

I'll be releasing updates also as I further work on the set.

-sundogak- Good info on the art stuff , Ive tinkered with gameex, I've put Visual Pinball to the back of the list considering how daunting it seemed.

@wallmachine

Only did these since don't have full screen setup (Desktop view with second monitor backglass) and wanted to stick with X only:

  • Visual Pinball [VPXx] Original Tables  (picking and choosing, for most part not doing a lot of these unless they looked interesting)
  • Visual Pinball [VPXx] PinMame Tables
  • Visual Pinball [VPXx] Recreated Tables

I have about 350 for VP that imported into LB but going to do serious pruning since has been taking a lot of time to get backglass running and doing media.  There is limit to my OCD!  Found I usually had to download from one of the VP sites for the backglass and in many cases found slightly newer versions. 

I had different "Hyperspin ready" set from 2016 since it was a "one table" set. I believe the set you are referring to had a lot of similar versions which I didn't want to wade through but in essence this is what I have:

  • Future Pinball Original Tables (~290)
  • Future Pinball Recreated Tables  (~ 430)

I wound up replacing quite a few of the Future Pinball tables from PinSimDB.org  when started using BAM since they didn't have clear indicators in that set on what the Physics type was and/or included the XML files needed. 

@lou silver This thread is what got me going on VP but the issue found is they were setup for full single glass setups in many cases rather than desktop.  Can change the setup, but requires fiddling with each table or in many cases the DMD shows up rotated 90 degrees so wound up going with the PD set I had instead.
