What I did....

Download the following:
1. ftp://pinballhaven.com/pub/visual/VisualPinball.zip

2. http://www.pinmame.emuviews.com/beta/vpinmame_099b3.zip

3. http://www.thefew.com/cgi-bin/countvp/countdown.cgi?vbs10.zip

Directions:
1. Extract #1 download to a folder...
2. run the setup.exe and direct it to a folder to C:/PinBall....
3. Restart...

Next:
1. make a new folder called C:/Pinball/Pinmame...
2. Extract #2 into c:/Pinball/Pinmame...
3. Run the setup.exe...
4. Notice the names of the folders that it points to for the files...
5. Write these down and create them within c:/Pinball/Pinmame...
6. Extract download #3 into c:/Pinball/Tables...

RESTART...

When booted, run the Visual Pinball from the Start/Programs menu...

Goto file/open and choose one of the included games...
It should load, then press F5 to play the game...


Does it work?

If so, you are there...

For games, goto http://www.hippie.net/shivasite/index.shtml

They should hook you up...


NOTICE!

The VPT files go into the c:/Pinball/Tables directory...
The Winamp or MP3 files go c:/Pinball/music...
The Font files goto c:/windows/fonts...
The Roms goto c:/Pinball/Pinmame/roms

Note: For Roms, make sure to right click on the zip file and extract to the same name as the zip file before placing into the roms directory!


HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
