About This File

I'm very happy to share this table because for the first time it should be truly playable and complete.
Until now the way BigFatso moved in all the previous versions was wrong enough to kill the game's rules and the contact lens toy was missing.
To be clear it plays and looks now far better than expected when I started to rebuild this table 
But don't expect to get one of the prettiest vpx tables: the ressources available for this pinball are very limited and not very good. Also I don't have enough skill to do something really better than that...

I wanted first to make a mod of the previous vpx versions of this table but I finally rebuilt it from scratch.
So this is a "new" VPX version but nothing would be possible without the previous versions made.

This is my first try... To rebuild this table I took some parts directly from the previous versions made (playfield lights, original script, switches,...).

I did a lot of work to redraw all the arts of this table because there is no real scans available. 
So I did the same as the previous autors and tried to take the best from the few pictures available on the net...

Thanks to the previous autors (I won't be able to do anything without their work)
- Destruk and TAB for the VP9 version
- Rascal for the VPX conversion
- Bigus for the MOD and an other VPX version
