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!
