http://roguepinball.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=562Big Valley was released in March 1970 and was designed by Ted Zale with art by Christian Marche.  2,500 Big Valley games were produced, so it is only moderately rare to find one today. Ted Zale designed most of the Bally EM flipper games and was responsible for many innovations during his decade long design run (1963-1973).  Among these were the Mushroom bumper, and the Free Ball gate along with the use of high voltage DC to power bumpers, flippers and slingshots with far more "oomph" than had been seen previously. In Big Valley we see Zale's use of asymmetry and many gates as well as his early multiball design. Pressing the "4" key toggles between a 3 Ball and 5 Ball game, and as with all of my games, pressing the "R" key will display the game rules and all of the feature keys.

Table by PBecker1946, FS conversion by Itchigo.

That's really an improvement of one of my favorite games!

One question: With this table (and also with its predecessor version) sometimes i encounter  massive ball stutter at the beginning of a game. This stutter vanishes after a few seconds.

I tried all possible vsync/FPS combinations but to no avail. (Ironically, i don't have any stutter problems with VPX tables.)

Should i use a specific version of VP9?

I use VP 9.9.5 and haven't had any problems.

I agree that this is a wonderful new version of a great old table, which I remember diverted me from many hours when I should have been studying in college.

Thank you for your answer,  Ttrenkner.

I tried VP 9.9.5, but had the same results.

It's a strange phenomenon, and, if i remember correctly, only three games are affected by this particular error (the other ones are "Bally Hoo" and "See Saw").

Pity, because i like those games very much.
