Default Cloverleaf, 1932 by Gottlieb for VPX

Updated to run from VP9 to VPX - each line of script has been checked and numerous fixes to the playfield have been implemented. Plays just as fast and furious as the VP9 version. Have fun!!!

Nifty design. I tried playing it right away and was kind of astonished how fast it can go!

As a matter of fact, I might have run in to a problem in that my VPX version is slightly older, and the table started doing slightly odd stuff by the third game or so. Guess I better upgrade, huh?

The one obvious thing that stands out is that the ball doesn't match the table very well. Or at all, really. IMO it could deffo use some dark wood tones. As a matter of fact, it seems to me that with these older games with less bells & whistles, a lightly animated ball could work quite nicely. Possibly also some rolling sounds as it moves around the PF.

If you recall my Billiards engine, I added simple animations to the striped balls in order to make them look a lot more realistic. It was only five frames per ball in a loop, with each striped ball being displayed in absolutely random positions one after the other. I thought it would look pretty ridiculous when I was implementing it, but somehow it works out rather amusingly.

As for a rolling sound, I remember it being used in a version of Paragon from roughly 2003 or so. Doesn't look like it's uploaded here, but I guess I could search around if you're curious.

All rolling and clacking sounds from VPX have been implemented. It's all been updated.

Hmm. I checked VPF, and they only have version 10.5 of VPX, same as what I have here.
But when I was running this table, it specifically asked for 10.6.

Where did you pick up your copy of 10.6?

Here is the download I put up at Rogue Pinball:

This version works great as the other version of VPX 6 had KERNELBASE.DLL errors which affect Windows itself.


Hope this helps!

Okay, thank you.

After some quick checking, I see that VP 10.5 is indeed the latest official, stable version, which is what I'm running.

I think I'd rather not get in to running an experimental version, unless it came from destruk or someone like that. Sorry about that.

Not a problem. I just wanted to stay up to date so I use this one now. There is another version which is a step higher than this one but it gave me serious KERNELBASE.DLL errors which can cause very big problems for Windows itself. Amazingly it was just VPX and not my version of Windows which was the culprit.


But anyway, there is a post in VP Forums which have another version updated for VPX 6.
