Default Jungle Girl / FPX

Not a real formal announcement, but something I have been working on in my spare time. Off and on, I have been working on a new scoring and logic engine, called FPX, and a companion game called Jungle Girl.

You can see the post at GoPinball for the FPx Template engine here:
http://www.gopinball.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6389

At the present moment, I am working on bonus count routine code, based off of shivaEngine 2/3/4 so hopefully soon. After which I will do some polishing of the code, smoother timer routines, better lighting and display effects etc, and get a base template out.

Jungle Girl will be the companion game. The layout is designed, the rules are set, it's just the artwork to do, and all the graphics, before it's rebuilt using FPx. This is hard to believe, but this would be my first original table I have released by myself in 14 years !!!!

A long way off, as I also have other commitments, and it doesn't help that I keep on adding more things for me to do, but the engine and the game are my priority right now, so I will be getting back to work, as well as learning Unity and Pinball Creator.

In the meanwhile, here is the last version of the play field image that I put up on facebook.

Started back up on this. just adding text/lens etc. Of all things, I didn't have any Bally arrows among my resources, despite the multiple Bally tables i have done. (I do now)

Anyway, I decided to just use what I have, stop playing around with it, and get the playfield finished so I can start scripting. Here's a closeup of the playfield at full resolution.

Thanks Dan. I could use a couple those beers after this. Very proud of myself though, most of the images I used as a base were black and white, or dull colors, so I had to learn how to color them from scratch after the redraw/additions. Pretty damn good if I do say so myself, but I will try and not separate my shoulder patting myself on the back, still have a lot to do.

PF getting close to being done, at least for the art. Lighting, shadows etc next, before getting the table built and scripted. Then the rest of all the graphics, plastics cab, and final cleanup.

Wow, this did not turn out to be short term, but still, quite enjoyable to do just for the challenge.

Thanks tii. Clearing out some other things, and using what I have learned with vpx from the fpx portions, I can transfer over back to FPX as well now, as the script isn't as usuable in flexibility as I had thought. shit load of work either way, still enjoying it anyway

Where does the artwork come from, btw? I remember Trigon also had quite professional-looking design.

In each case, it's not just the quality of the drawings, coloring, shading and so forth... but also as a whole... as legit-looking PF art that one might see on the prettier real-life machines.

Well, Trigon came from one artist, george perez, so I cut out the bits from multiple books and filled in the rest. Same inker as well, so very easy to glue it together.

This came from multiple artists, and multiple inkers and colorists, there is about 14 different main images for the PF, plus the things I added, but had to redraw, redo all the inks, and the colors to get it consistent, and then add my own to connect it all together. Yes, that is insane, but it was a challenge, and is the toughest thing I've ever had to do. I'm really happy, it means a lot you like it for what it is. Put a LOT of effort, not a natural artist, just real damn stubborn, and refuse to give up.

Not something I intended, but I am such a visual person in how I do things, can't help it. (My ex-wife would call it being anal, but she never was right about anything anyway) Thing that is insane? Wait for when it comes time to do the plastics.
