Compatibility - All V3 plungers in existence

 
Changelog:
 
  Pinball input control software written and developed by Zeb (Steve Ridgley)                                    http://www.zebsboards.com
 
  *************************************************************************************************************************************
      Tested on very little with the high possibility that it may work under Visual Pinball, PBFX2, TPA, PinMame and Future Pinball
      Written and developed under the influence; specifically beer.
      Recompling is unnecessary for making it work.. compiles everytime....doesn't mean it works.
