By malarryaVisual Pinball was a mess and needed some sort of cohesion with the videos, artwork, and database. I don't want to take credit for others' hard work. The videos, wheel images and original database were all preexisting before I got a hold of them. I just attempted to make a cohesive set. In doing so, I came out with 303 that matched up rather well. This is, of course, the database. This is by no means a complete set of what's available for Visual Pinball. There are over a thousand tables available that are updated all the time. This core set, however, is pretty much the best of what's available. This set is designed to assist someone starting out with VP or anyone who has never taken the time to get VP fully functional.
NOTE -- PLEASE USE THE WHEEL PACK CREATED BY 32ASSASSIN. Most of the 303 database items are within his pack already properly named (it may be missing a couple).
1. The videos/artwork/XML for these games are for the DESKTOP VERSIONS of the pinball games. This means NOT FULLSCREEN tables but 3/4 VIEW tables. This is generally desirable for an upright arcade machine or TV
2. THESE ARE FOR VP 9.x.x tables. However, about a dozen or so are version 8.x.x tables which, from my testing, run fine in VP 9.x.x.
3. If you download a VP table, you'll need to RENAME it manually to the what the XML DB has. You can use the Rename ROMs tool found here on the forums or COPY from RocketLauncher and PASTE in the filename. This can be tedious but then again, there's no standard and I can't give everyone all the tables already renamed. I'm sure you may have a way that's fast for you to rename but if you need help please ask.
4. If you donate $10 to VPForums you'll get much faster download speeds and the latest tables. If you torrent the tables they will be pretty old and really a waste of time. You want the latest versions.
Please let me know if you encounter any oddities with the XML.
