    The guy who goes under the name mini pinball australia is apparently behind that site. He is also trying to trademark the words "Virtual Pinball".

    He joined AA just so he could report me and have a little rant here but hasn't posted anything since. He may well be lurking though I guess.

      What site is back? Vpinball still appears down for me. The guy doing the pack sharing seems to have his site up though.

        Maybe vpuniverse will come back from limbo now...

          Billy has been doing a heap of work to get VPUniverse working as required.

            I had no idea. Trying to get my machine back up getting their tables was the thing I was looking most foward to. There work still around at lease?

              I think some of it is, but I think their stuff is mostly shared amongst (online) friends. If you remember what you want of theirs, I can probably share it with you.

              I believe they watch the community now, but I don't think they contribute, if they do it's secretly. Their work was always great and I wish their site was still around. G5K also uploaded his stuff to their site and I'm not sure that he's ever uploaded it elsewhere.

                would be good to have another option apart from vpforums, where i got banned for 12 months for mentioning I used a Pin2DMD not to mention the auto-censorship that guy puts into his forum code so you can't post articles about products that compete with his.

                not sure if this is still the case. i don't download a lot of tables any more, just if I don't have the current comp table.

                    Yep... VP Forums is crap purely because of that. As far as I know they still do it. One of the Admins on a VP Facebook page calls it the Censorship Forum.

                    Didn't you change your username on VPForums to Pin2DMD at one stage Jed?

                      kind of, after i noticed my simple questions about Pin2DMD got censored by his forum code [because he sells a competing product] i created a new user with the name Pin2DMDrulesOK

                      it got his attention, he banned that username, and he must have looked further into it and found it came from my IP address, as he banned my main account too Didn't stop me logging in and downloading via use of a private browser window though.

                        Of all the sites I have never felt comfortable contributing in any way. Which is a shame, because I like to be a part of it. Monstarbash I felt okay though and was happy donating from time to time.

                        Thanks, that would be awesome. I found that the tables on their site were the best to play, it felt like they got the dimensions to be fun, maybe not correct. Probably had 50 hours on their MM alone. I just need to get back into it.

                        It is the first cab of the rank post renovations and the arcade is next room. So it should get a massive workout again.

                          I remember when they created Ghostbusters and there was no way to emulate it and I thought to myself, why wouldn't they create something else, spend their time creating a game that we can actually play because all of their other creations were awesome... then later came the hack and I was so happy that they had done the ground work.

                            And then Ghostbusters was pretty short-lived online when it was done, and has now passed in whispered requests from player to player...

                            Since gathering VR versions of tables lately (there's a large amount being uploaded to VPUniverse in the last day or two) i'm noticing some snowballing from randr's little tantrum, now some content creators are pulling their work from sites... which is just stupid, punishing the whole community because of the actions of a few people selling pincabs.

                            And so the Visual Pinball drama queens have a whole swarm of bees in their bonnets again

                                VP in VR is 100% jaw dropping just seriously amazing, like standing in front of and playing the actual machine and the detail is insane.

                                now i need to build a 'stubby pin' for VR, fark it never ends. Just when i thought i was out.....I get dragged back in.
