    Big Betty’s Truck Stop is a pinball machine from 1988 and manufactured by Bally Manufacturing Co.

    This was the first game following the merger of Williams and Bally/Midway.

    Lots of ramps, slingshots, lights, and a cool trucker theme make this table really fun to play!

    I would like to send a very special thanks to the following:

    - sindbad : For being able to use his VP9 table resources as a great starting point.

    - JPSalas : Improved table physics thanks to JPs "Arcade Physics 3.0" materials, script changes, and techniques.

    - flupper, nFozzy, and others : Flipper physics, flasher lighting, etc.

    - BrandonLaw : Playfield and plastics cleanup and enhancement of Sindbad’s resources

    - bigus1 : Beta testing and lighting tweeks

    - VPX development team: As always, thanks for your work in keeping VP alive and well

    - To anyone I may have forgotten, please let me know and I'll add you.

    Note: There’s some confusion that this table was or wasn’t released a few years ago for VPX.

    I cannot find anywhere that it was officially put out so I made my own for VPX.

    Are ramps metal in real table? Thought they were plastic? Either way thanks for sharing it looks good from pic

    @zigbange

    maybe there was prototype machine or something…. or I’m an idiot :) like I said it looks great! I just recall plastic ramps for some crazy reason…ignore what I asked I’m wrong ??

    lol no worries randr.  i usually reference restoration pics and youtube videos to make sure i got the table pretty accurate.

    of course, there’s that dumb little color blindness thing i have to deal with but that only affects me not seeing missing materials (as we all know by now!)

    Thanks so much for this one agentEighty6. Was hoping someone would do a nice VPX of Truck Stop and you really delivered! I played this pin relentlessly in 1988 and this really takes me back.

    Looks great!!  Snuck a d-load while at the GF’s to take a peek…looking forward to getting this on the cab.  Oh look – – that Wildman guy has a B2s.  Go figure ;)  Yet another table I’d never heard of.  Thanks 86!!  …is that you Maxwell Smart??

    @zigbane : Very nice. And you seem to have used the element selector to help you finding those elements without materials ?! I found one tiny material related mistake and it was only because I hate gates being visible in the plunger area. The wall “Apron”, I don’t think you need to have the side of it visible, so if you turn that option off, you will not see the slight purple shining through by the plunger.

    Kind of late here now, so I only played a couple of games on it with volume very low since wife went to bed. Impressed and looking forward to play this again tomorrow.

    The only thing i changed is the ball rolling sounds. I prefer louder. Love the physics on this one, i will play this a lot that’s sure. Thank you again.

    @zigbane Thanks, i had a prev. VPX Truck Stop, full working, can’t remember exactly from where,
    i think it was in any Beta Talk on VPF … also from Sindbad, or 32assassin ? Whatever …

    I have that older one also and notice that it is made by 32assassin. I hope, that is correct.

    And there is also a nude-mod of this table. :-)
