Just a quick tip, since I struggled with this initially and found it difficult to get the correct syntax for launching vpinball (visual pinball) from the command line or within front-ends (in my case, Mala).

This is designed to launch straight into the game, instead of loading visual pinball (editor) and requiring you to launch the game from there.

The correct syntax is:
vpinball.exe -play -"rompath"

That sounds simple, but you'd be suprised how much conflicting information there is about whether its a slash or a minus(dash). My mistake was that I didn't have the second dash prefixing the actual rom path, which was causing an error/wasn't loading the table.
