  1. Hello Everyone, First of all; I'd like to thank you all for being part of the VPUniverse community as well as the whole Virtual Pinball community. Recently we encountered some bumps after a server upgrade. After several hours of monitoring; the host was finally able to narrow down the problem. It was found that another site that is shared on this server was basically causing the server to DDoS. This caused the site to be un-responsive and return the Bad Gateway errors. The errors have been resolved and server speeds feel quite a bit faster. Hopefully we can keep it like this. With this said; eventually I'm going to have to move the site and find a better solution. Running a site that is download and bandwidth heavy without any real revenue stream is a challenge. Your donations and continued support helps. Thanks for your patience, understanding and support.

    Stern Roms

    Those are Spike 1 & Spike 2 images. These games are not emulated and the code isn't going to do you any good right now and possibly for a really long while.
  3. Yes, this may have to do with the issues the site had... I had to disable several options on the site to help determine the cause of the problems. I've re-enabled short urls, so bookmarks should work now... Not sure. I'll be re-enabling things around here slowly as to not have to take the site down again.
  4. This one is one of the best ones that I know of.... http://mjrnet.org/pinscape/BuildGuideV2/BuildGuide.php
  5. Version 1.0.0

    84 downloads

    Port of Visual Pinball X to VR
  6. I haven't messed with HyperSpin in a while. Mine is still setup on my mamecab and running fine. Haven't touched it or rocketlauncher in a really really long time. I did just update MAME and my MAME database/XML files. Make sure you've updated to 1.5 or whatever it is and definitely setup and use Rocketlauncher if you aren't already. On my Pin; the color Pin2DMD (real DMD) is inside under the glass on the backwall. Same place were my original Pinball 2000 style DMD was at originally. I have the playfield setup as the main screen. Over the years; I've become very adept to using the screen sideways when I'm at the machine. My cab is back in a back bedroom right now, so I usually just do everything via network. I've dropped HyperSpin and started using the Pinup Popper frontend. It's very nice, fast and pretty feature rich. It also has a network element to it so you can add games, download media, etc via network.
  7. Yo Firebat! Good to see you here, my friend! Lots have changed in this hobby... Pinup Popper frontend really brings some really great things. Freezy's DMD really makes DMD's pop now. I recently re-built the whole backbox on my cabinet. Using a 27" backglass, 15" video screen, Pin2DMD.
  8. Hello Everyone, My apologies, but the DOF tool is currently down. The cloud provider that we use is currently experiencing issues. I'm away at a pinball tournament this weekend, but I'll try to keep an eye on it. Hopefully, it will not be down much longer. Thanks, Dazz
  9. There is no link.
  10. Anyway to add custom ROM entry for Batman 66 which uses the flash_l1 ROM?
  11. Table was removed from all download sites due to takedown requests from Farsight & Stern Pinball.
  12. Man... Join the club. We had a storm roll through yesterday here in Texas... 24,000 lightning strikes in 4 hours.
  13. SetDMD is fine, if you've already run many ROMs and want to change positions. That's a workaround, but not ideal. One of the first things PinMAME asks after installing; is to set DEFAULTS. Setting DEFAULT DMD location should be part of this. As of now there is no way for anyone to visually set default DMD location without loading a ROM and then it doesn't set it as default. I've recently helped several people via Discord... Just deleting PinMAME registry, setting one game dmd to location, renaming that registry entry to default. Not really a fun thing to do. For a new person to be able to set a default DMD location via PinMAME would be ideal.
  14. Hey Guys, I had to walk someone this evening through editing their defaults to add a default location via registry editing. I really think there needs to be a way in PinMAME setup > Setup Defaults to view and change the default DMD location and size. Is this something that you could please consider adding? Thanks

    Why Future Pinball? Visual Pinball X is light years ahead in every way.
  17. This is totally different than some simple high-score competition that those sites run. This would be an on-going league that spans across multiple events with league scoring. This is how legit pinball leagues are done. Yes, this does have a couple more hoops to jump through, but the people willing to make these jumps would be more serious and honest competition.
  18. What's the complicated part? This is basically the same method we use at league games on real machines. I mean, come on, I'm the only one trying to do something to encourage people to play... Name an easier method that doesn't require much development.
  19. Some of the new Pup_packs for Pinup Popper use a muted ROM so music for the game is generated via the PuP Pack. They include a modified version of the ROM that has had the music removed/muted. As of right now you have to replace the original ROM with the muted one, using the same name. I'm afraid that if some of these muted ROMs get out into the public and mixed into ROM packs; that eventually ROM sets may be corrupted. Would it be possible to have new entries added into PinMAME to accommodate for MUTED ROMs? Perhaps just a new name entry like we've done for colored ROMs? Or would it be possible to add a MUTE option in PinMAME itself so it can mute the music from the ROM? This way people can just select the option for that specific ROM to mute the music.
  20. Pinup Player enhances existing games. They add video clips and just adds that little extra. Frontend - Pinup Player is excellent. Coming from me, a diehard HyperPin user, this is a huge compliment. It makes the transition from selecting a game to playing a game; a completely transparent process. Popper is easy to setup, difficult to master and it's very fast and snappy. It just makes a better user experience overall.
  21. Still planning on doing this in the near future.
  22. I tested this and was not able to ever get it working with the current method of SPA. I don't think this one is going to happen... at least not by me.
