Title: Vpinmame users speak up!
Post by: menace on January 26, 2005, 12:56:27 pm
I just discovered this awesome little bit of software and am loving it!.  I was formerly of the mindset "who would want to play an emulated pinball machine, it can never be like the real thing" but after playing a few i was right and wrong.  It truly isn't the same but it's the best substitute and i can play all these pins i have seen over the years but never got to play.

So now the natural progression is a dedicated pinmame machine--anyone here done this yet?  I see the goldmine has the required metal work done but i'm talking about a stand alone machine here--just curious...  Now i can see why all you guys added pinball buttons to the sides--I always thought you were crazy--now whos's crazy ;D

The closest thing I've seen was a guy used vpinmame to control a dedicated Baby Pac-Man...Pretty darn cool though

Vpinmame & Visual Pinball - definately worth the effort.  I initially wasn't planning on putting flipper buttons on my cab.  But then I finally broke down & loaded these bad boys - WOW!  Really cool.  No question flipper buttons were going on my cab then.  I play Vpin almost as much as mame. 

Haven't heard and haven't seen any dedicated set-ups for this, tho.

I have thought about making a pinball cabinet.  I need to find (and afford) a big high resolution monitor.  I want one that will do at least 1024x768, and be at least 25".  I'll probably have to wait a while. ::)
I would also like to use a second monitor for the backglass display.

I made some sketches about a year ago, but I don't know what happened to them.

I finally got another computer set up to share the workload.  Now maybe I can actually start playing again.  My main comp was too bogged down to run a table.  I am trying to get everything setup with 3d Arcade.  It should look great if I can get it set up right.
