BAM (Better Arcade Mode)

Support File BAM (Better Arcade Mode) All versions, through v.1.5-xxx

No permission to download
Better Arcade Mode (BAM) is an add-on that improves and extends functionality in Future Pinball, and other FP-related & pinball-related resources. It's required by many modern FP tables, which will not work properly (or at all) unless it's installed.

The easiest way to install Future Pinball and BAM is to use the 2-in-1 installer. It installs both BAM and FP with a single exe file. It also automatically changes several settings to prevent problems that you may encounter during game play. After you follow the download link to Ravarcade's site, click on the big blue button on the right labelled "Future Pinball and BAM (2-in-1)."
