I made a model roughly based on pinball fx2 arcade for VR headset.
I don't know if BAM has it's own shadow yet so I can't really figure how I will export this model since there is a lot of textures.

I would make it so the pinball table is right in the middle of the center pit. Can this interest anyone or should I move on to something else?

I PM'd you a message (and deleted it before you saw it..) a month ago , asking if you could do this very thing....

..and I was about to do the same today, when I saw this post...

I am very interested in this Steve !

As you probably read on the the recent "coin door" post
BAM can already replace the Game Room Model

Just before I dismantle it to make it in many parts, do you know the concept of Spherical enrironment made with a cube cross image?

See example here : http://ggnome.com/pano2vr/examples

My point is that with a simple cube with 6 independent faces you can map a cross type environment map.

I made such a cube and can send it to you if you want to try it with the miniplayfield in BAM.

It will surely not be as effective as a full 3d model, but much more customisable by any one since you need to edit some images to obtain the scenery of your choice.

Anyway, let me know if you want to try it.

Yes please Steve.
A cube sounds perfect and cross texture map looks cool....

I can definitely try miniplayfield application...

The other option with BAM is if possible converting the model as:

GameRoom 391.MODELS
and BAM can load it automatically from the TableName.zip that we make?

is there a way to extract the actual gameroom to know wht is the size of it?
I know about the replacing thingy in BAM but don't want to guess what size the cube should be.

cube with cross mapping texture support

Here's the model, I think...



Here's the procedure I followed:

How to get all the elements from original game?
Use my small command line tool: FPRes.
http://www.ravarcade.pl/files/FPRes.exe

Instruction:
1.Create a folder ie "C:/BAM Models"
2.Copy Future Pinball.exe file into the folder ( I renamed it NEWFP.exe)
3.Also Copy FPRes.exe file into the folder
4.Open Command Prompt (and make sure the path can find your new directory ie Path C:/Models )
5. Type the following command:
FPRes.exe NEWFP.exe
6. A new directory called "FpRes" should be now be present
ie C:/Models/FpRes
7. There will be a Models subdirectory present with all the FP models
8.The Game Room is 391.Models
9.Simply Rename it 391.fpm in order to load into FPM editor

I am using milkshape and can load the obj cube and convert to ms3d and fpm
but how do I convert the mtl file to a jpg? so I can see if the texture works?
