An emulator that uses Visual Pinball and the original roms from existing pinball machines to make conversions of them. Scripting knowledge is necessary.
In mid 2008 about 450 pinsims as conversions of real Machines, even with the original videogames! Those tables start in the 70`s and the newest are from 2007!
Tables running under VP 8 have to be worked over to run under VP 9. Both versions run side by side!

difficulty from nice to very challanging, well just as you might remember the real machine was 4-10
fun the better the tables are packed with targets and modes, the better they are for me. The older ones with more moderate layouts, the newer ones often with videogames and everything you want a pinball to have 10-20

specials what the real machine had, you will see and play in VPM, even with the original videogames 5-10
