BAM

Better Arcade Mode is Future Pinball MOD .

BAM is  Freeware.

  • What’s wrong with Arcade Mode?

    • Isometric view. Resulting in a lack of perspective. All the elements are shown at the same angle. Such view makes pinball cabin unreal.
    • Inconvenient adjustment of the table.
    • Need to setup parameters as position of the camera and light by editing windows registry.
  • What BAM is giving.

    • After loading the table, it is automatically centered and scaled to fill whole screen.
    • Easy to change the position of the table, camera, lighting and immediate affect of the changes.
    • No need of registers changes.
    • Automatic read / write changes for selected table (you can have different settings for different tables).

    But BAM was made not for any of those reasons. It changes the rendering and by that makes table looks like real one.
