Artwork based on dipswitch setting?
01/18/20 02:02 PM


This is one of those "I never thought to ask before" questions.

Is it possible in the artwork system today, to change state of artwork, based on a dipswitch setting? And if not today, maybe later?

Example 1: many games have a DS to change the score needed for free man or extended gameplay (e.g. Clowns, Guided Missile, etc.)

Example 2: some games have a DS to change cabinet type (cocktail vs upright), which necessitates choosing a whole different artwork setup (View). (e.g. Breakout, Warlords).

Would be cool if the state of the necessary DS could be captured, to apply the correct artwork, rather than having to manually add a separate view for each setting (at least in the case of the score setting).



RELAX and just have fun. Remember, it's all about the games.
