    Continuing with the grunge series of tables (I do live near Seattle) Hauntfreaks and I present to you our deluxe 1.5K edition of Gottlieb's 1978 Neptune.  Haunt brought this project to me as a rebuild of vp9 version with someone's redraw which during my course of setting it up became apparent it was not sized right.  Also while looking around I ran across a decent resolution full stripped playfield shot of Poseidon, the export version of this table, on IPDB that had a nice worn look to it, well OK it was/is pretty trashed, but at least it was complete and could be sized to the correct proportions and have everything in the right places.  haunt did some magic and improved the main feature of the playfield graphics, but again we went with the worn and rusty look.  We did do some partial restores with some new metal and plastic bits, but this is a well loved machine.

    Download includes the directB2s and landscape and portrait POV files (table comes in portrait).

    Worn look is the best if done correctly. Knowing you guys, I’m confident it is. Really looking forward to get back from work today. Thank you very much BorgDog and Hauntfreaks !

    Cool table, guys… thank you.

    I have to admit, I didn’t like the ball shadow at all when it first started showing up on tables, but HF, or whoever has been modifiying it, it looks way better on the some of the newer ones.

    Thanks again.

    I owned Big Brave as a kid and I have all the art ready when borg is interested in scripting it… all it would be is a script and BG change for it to be Big Indian

    That settles it, I’m leaving Au for Seattle !

    My daughter is over there at the moment on her way back home, and keeps sending me photos of pinnies shes finding all over the place .. here we can’t even find an arcade with anything other than 1 modern table and a bunch of ‘whack-a-mole’ or similar activities .. She has now, at the age of 24, come to the realisation that when I tell her and her boyfriend that they aren’t arcades .. I’m right :)

    These older and aged tables just seem more .. pinbally and less arcadey to me at least, and the wizardy of BD and HF is a delight. Thanks so much for letting me be nostalgic !

    Cheers,

    al.

    You’ve been wanting to do that Big Brave table for a while now… hope you can get it worked out… would be cool.

    This table is such a pleasure to play. Spot on mechanics and “feels” like I am playing a proper working older machine that may reside in a Pacific Northwest Penny Arcade. I suppose the only quibble would be the kick-out saucer “grabbiness”, but that isn’t a table issue and only so much can be tweaked with that element and still provide consistent capture and register.

    A wonderful work of art BorgDog and team. Thank you. :good:
