Hey, pal, there’s a cover charge here!
Welcome to the Big Bang Bar, the bangin’est place in the galaxy. We wondered, what table would be a good showpiece for some of the new lighting techniques that have been developed lately and BBB was a clear choice with amazing light shows. Plus, it’s just really fun. Have a drink, hit the mosh pit, and try not to get bounced!

The download zip file includes the VPX file and a NV ram file. Place the VPX file in your Tables folder and place the NV file in your >VPinMAME>nvram folder.
This table uses many large images, therefore a lot of RAM, so you will most likely need to run it with a 64-bit build of VPX. Follow this guide if you want to update your software to 64-bit. This approach allows you to also run with the legacy 32-bit software if you want to.
If you want to lighten the GPU load from this table, and you never intend to use its VR capability, then here is a simple hack that may improve performance for you: Open the table in the editor, then go to top menu item Table>Image Manager… Within the image manager, click on the Import Path column header to sort the images by path name. Select all the images that have a path name starting with “C:\User\Rod” and then click the Delete button. Additionally, you can delete the following images “BBB_BG”, “BBB_BG_Fluo”, and “BBB_BG_Lit”. Save the table.

Added note to the bottom of description about how to delete VR images if desired. The download file did NOT change.
