PinMAME & Visual PinMAME 0.99b3 - May 04,2001 by JoseQ
New version of PinMAME (DOS) and Visual PinMAME (same URL) have been released! You can get them from the link above. They each offer several bug fixes and a number of new improvements. Now that I have the site back up, I have been thinking about putting a table repository. Of course I need to get into the Visual PinMAME deal still since I have yet to ever use those new emulators. I am a huge computer pinball game fan, so I bet that once I do I'll be hooked (part of why I'm afraid of it). But once I get it going, I'm probably going to start collecting it and offering as part of this site. What do you guys think? How high of a priority should I make it?

This site could use a bit of a defining feature now that the huge rom list is gone. Also, I haven't really gotten into PinMAME simply because the aggravation of combing through countless ROM sites gets way too old, way too fast. I'd love to see a known, trusted site have a PinMAME focus.

So yeah, I think it's a good plan. :)

Not to belittle JoseQ's idea at all - I agree, I think it's a great idea - but there are a couple of sites out there already dedicated to this stuff. Check out:

Shivasite

welcome.to/vpinball

AJ's VPinMAME Table Download Site

These sites also provide links to other sites and contain news and information about what's happening in the VisPin scene. Shiva's site also has a very well-organized ROM archive, including all of the known-good precompiled ROM sets that were available when PinMAME was known as WPCMAME. Good place to go for stuff.

And finally, unlike for most emulators, the ROMs for pinball machines were released (at least on the part of WMS/Bally) as public-domain - updates to the ROMs are freely distributed on the Williams site as well. This was a nice move on their part since Williams is no longer in the pinball business - they've gone on to make video-poker machines. :P

Some of the better sites sofar I visit that carry them tables and vpinmame roms, getting massive hits per day. The Shiva site getting over 5000 hits a day now. The best part of this is it doesnt appeal too much to thelamer crowd. As for the tables, There's a set of new Developers bieng added daily and great Tables bieng released day by day think Im upto 80 tables sofar that I down-loaded this week.

I have been staying up late too many nights enjoying some of my favorite pinball games through PinMame and Visual PinMame. I have also played some excellent original boards. Maybe I'll create a board at some point - if I can ever stop playing for a few minutes! =)

one where authors could also upload thier latest accomplishments would be great :) and possibly time saving.

A good message board is what the 'scene' really needs... I wonder how many other people besides me have problems posting on MSN communities... Dorsola, do you have any ideas what's wrong with Randy's board? I posted one or two messages there and now can't post a damn thing :( I feel like I'm being punished! arhhhh

I may have answered my own question ;) it is MSN after all...

I found I had to clear out all my cookies when that happened to me. Try that and see if that helps.

JoseQ,
I think it's a great idea. I'm a pinball fanatic, so I would suggest high priority, but I'm a little biased. :)
