I'm getting the urge for some time on the vpin. Anyone interested in another comp, VPGL10 time anyone, skids ?

I'm thinking just VPX, there has been so many great new releases in the last couple of months. I need an excuse to play them [emoji2]

Maybe? We need some numbers, the last comp hardly had anyone playing...

I'm actually surprised by that considering the amount of Pinball people on AA. You'd think this would be something people would want to get into.

Yeah, cause most of the VP10 originals were crap and had so many bugs the games were hardly worth playing....

If we went back to regular commercially released games I think numbers would be better. And maybe some vetting of nominations, weed out the rubbish first ;)

I think it's probably the fault of the software, it's not exactly easy to install and setup, compared to other pin sims. With Vp10, it's still the best of any of them though, in terms of realism, imo.

That's the key I guess, need something that is easy to set up everybody can use.

Nice one on the build ! What spec PC are you running ?

Vp10 can be a bit demanding for full screen play but there's a lot of tweaks in the settings you can try to make things run smoother depending on the spec of your PC.

Diablo is an ultraDMD game, when you downloaded the table, you should have got a folder in the download with it labelled "Diablo.UltraDMD" make sure that folder is in the same directory as your tables folder.

Dedrok should be back, he didn't have most of the original tables and doesn't have UltraDMD and would have killscreened everything UltraDMD anyway.

Bishop83 depending on what graphics card you're running VPX might work on lower settings.

Try these:
124593

And make sure B2S is set to run as exe.

Turning off ball reflection will also give a little performance gain.

Sopranos is the worst VPX table I've come across. The VP9 version is fun.

Really need to get the mancave in the new house sorted out and operational. The wife says sorting out the house takes priority.

Still, mancave has its own deck just outside the door which ain't too shabby.
