  • Down the vpin rabbit hole

    Decided after building some arcade replica’s it was time to build a virtual pinball.
    Boy they are hard work haha. 32 inch ips monitor for the playfield. 24 inch monitor for the back glass and a repurposed laptop screen as a DMD.
    i5 12gb ram. Currently using a GTX 960 2gb but will upgrade that. Using Pinballx with about 150 tables split between Visual pinball X and FX3. Will also add SSF.

    I think VP has come a long way since I built one. Would like to see updates as you continue.

      Drop me a line when you're after all your VPin hardware "bits" as I can hook you up with a few things you'll be wanting.

      Cheers, Chris

        Chris from Ozstick will give you excellent advice. He was invaluable when building mine.

            Completed the basic cab. Only the backdoor to the back box left. Primed and ready for artwork.

                Some progress pics. Installed leg brackets, legs, amp for trnsducers, tranducers, virtual plunger. The bare mdf is a platform that the monitor sits on, this allows me to lift up the monitor to do repairs etc in the future. Only awaiting one more or hardware part which is the 10 inch monitor for the DMD.
