Michael Jackson wip
« on: January 29, 2013, 09:16:40 AM »
I actually started this pin three years ago when MJ first passed away
but due to real life I forgot all about it until about a month ago when someone posted on it
over at vpf
so this pin which was supposed to be a Beanie and Cecil pin was given to me by Eala
from over at vpf to use for a tribute pin for MJ
then I had the hell of a time trying to get it to work in a template since it wasn't in one
after around three hours and lots of code changes I got it working in Itchigos 2 player template
the pop bumper animations and jp's plunger routine were taken out
 a few timers were added along with numerous areas of coding now remmed out
or erased entirely
it works but only in vp8 as the ball hangs up too many places
to even try to get it to work in the newer versions of vp
so it is running and I will work on it again today trying to finish it by late Spring
unfortunately I did have to take out the Tilt routine, but I know you guys don't shake the pins right?
right? well anyhow it's working and that's all I care about
I am never wrong Once I thought I was
 but I was merely mistaken

So Eala started this one? I fixed it for you. Also as for the ball getting stuck the quick and dirty way is this :
Ballrelease.CreateSizedBall(40)   (or whatever size). Add that before it kicks out the ball, destroy the ball first and recreate it.
