So I wanted to share this table upgrade/mod that I think is complete for now.

So while I was compiling the tables for my cab project obviously AFM was a must.

Finding Slam's Ultimate version was a no brainer to add. And while it plays awesome I noticed a feature on another version that I thought, hmm can we do that in FP.

So I reached out to the BAM wizard himself Gimli, and he was able to make it happen!

So I present to you Ultimate 1.03. Now this mod might not be for purists but I think it's pretty cool. On to the features:

Upgraded all table lights to give them a modern LED hue instead of the traditional incandescent look. I think it gives the table a fresh look while maintaining the classic feel.

Updated the green table flash to a much brighter shade so when you hit the center saucer your enveloped in the green.

Added custom physics and Dynamic Flippers for that great table play. I suggest table slope 7.5 - 8 for best play. My personal preference is 7.75

For 2 screen cabinet users, I updated the DMD and removed the orange tint and gave it a nice dark background so the Green lettering color looks nice. Sorry Desktop users forgot about you.

And for the biggest update Spinning Saucers!! All credit to Gimli for this mod. I had the idea and he executed it perfectly. The added touch is when they launch into position on table startup then when you start your game they tilt into position and spin until your game ends. They then lay back into a resting position until game starts again.

I hope you all enjoy this mod. Here's a video of some cabinet gameplay. The download includes 3 different wheel images. Feel free to share and report back any bugs.

Looks nice. The backglass is a quite a bit brighter than the playfield. I asked Rav once to adjust the brightness of the backglass when we change the BAM lighting. He says he can't do it so we have to do it manually. I changed the color of the translite to 167, 167, 167 to make it a bit darker on my PC.

Also note I'm using Slam's lighting suggestion

" You will need to set BAM's lighting from 'FP Original' to 'New Renderer' and then change the default setting to 'Dark Night'. Adjust the parameters 'diffuse' to 0.300, 'Specular' to 1.000 and 'Ambient' to 0.050"

I also make a change in the Postprocess option of increasing the contrast to 1.075 for some deeper blacks.

Added a new rear wall graphic.

Hmmm, let me lower the brightness of the backglass a hair see what I can get.

I think it'll be a combo of lower radius and darker yellow.

I'll see what I can do.

When I try launching the table, I'm getting a "Meditation Error" at line 324 "Object required: MiniPlayField_0". Any idea what could be causing this?

I suspect you either do no have BAM installed or are using a version of BAM that is out of date.
