SubjectQuestion about that new shiny ball ... Reply to this message

I've noticed that quite a few of the tables are starting to use the "shiny" ball (as opposed to the old grey one.) I'm currently working on a table and would like to use the shiny ball if possible. Anyone out there know if this is possible and how to do it?

No problem. You can use my variant as well if you'd like.

It under this thread on the Shiva forum under Pinball/Requests

"Looking for a Shiny and non Shiny Black Pinball (Cannonball)"

Here's part of that thread

The image property is what chooses a variant pinball image so if you are creating a ball from the plunger then use

Plunger.CreateBall.image = "PinballImageNameHere"

for a custom ball.


Or use

Plunger.CreateBall

for the standard ball.

The Activeball works the same way if you want to change it on the fly.





So you could have a switch that uses one line or the other in script with a simple If then block.

If iUseCustomBall = 1 Then
Plunger.CreateBall.image = "PinballImageNameHere"
Else
Plunger.CreateBall
End If

That thread has a link to my images for both an alternate pinball and a darker "cannon" type pinball.

Hope that helps!

See if this link to the new forum works for you. This will give you two different pinballs to use.

I never got any of the links to work. If you post again, good for me, otherwise, oh well!
