Big House Gottlieb 1989, 
Originally made for VP9 by mfugemann (2015)
VPX conversion by Rascal (2019)
VPX enhanced MOD by Aubrel (2021)


Big House is a very underrated pinball game. This table was already very well done and needed only to be updated and improved for vpx.
I added in this new version some nice features to really much improve the gaming and the visual experiences.
By the way, everything has been done to match at best the real pinball machine.


I did a very big work on the overall lighting and the sound of this table and checked every details to render at its best.
-The overall lighting power is set automatically depending of the LUT chosen.
-The overall lighting power is updated in live depending of the current GI state.
-Darkness level is updated in live and can be set in the scrip to be just "as you want".
-Most collision sounds and the sound code are updated.


Some Mods have been also included (apron color, blades, instructions in french)


Most important changes :
- Lighting redone completely
- Sound redone almost completely
- Script code updated and improved
- Right ramp and captive ball moves improved
- GI lights fixed and positioned to match the real pinball
- Luts selection by Right MagnaSave
- Mods selection by Left MagnaSave
- Ball and flippers shadows
- Playfield cleanups (and sharpness by movieguru)
- Physics and gameplay improved
- Visual, sound and configuration options added
- Multiball light show improved
- Many small details, materials changed,...
- New backwall for desktop users
- Digital display added for desktop users


I love this pinball and really hope you will enjoy it

Really cool table, Aubrel has done some stellar work.

If you're not sure about this one - it's a prison breakout with great music, voices, and lights.  Try it at least until you get a multiball, and I guarantee you'll be hooked.

Hi Guys, you also need to download the Bighouse rom file to use this table. Table has a retro feel....goood  fun worth a play, I was undecided at first.
