    I love fast cars and faster women…. lol

    I’ve been/was a graphic designer for over 20yrs maybe 25 …. after I was laid off I had tons of time on my hands… but also had plenty of hobbies to keep me busy, at the time I flying RC aircraft… so I turned it into a business, I built a CNC machine to make parts for Multirotor copters (drones)… this was kinda an easy transition because of knowing how the design software worked, and have a friend thats a machinist that help on the machine end… since then china has taken over and that business is lacking to say the least… during that time I came across some stuff about people using a Raspberry PI in the RC world… so searching info. I seen someone use a PI for a 80’s mame machine… so I had to build one , so I built a bartop machine… doing research on this…. I seen my first VP Machine… then I found FP… started collecting games and after a while I seen how the graphics were inserted into the game, and said… humm… this is no different than any other design work… then had to build a pin cab …. which only ran FP at first, talking to people I was convinced to install VP, (what a nightmare compared to FP)… after lots of videos and reading I finally understood how it all worked… so my VP table collection started overriding my FP tables…. and again seen how VP used its graphics… so author for me is a very loose term… I barely understand any of the code, I get by if I need to change some stuff here and there… I’m no coder tho at all… I can’t stress that enough… so that’s the progression of how i got here… recently I started working on a full size hyperspin machine, so here we go again… lost,… thought it would be no different then the pin cab and the PI machine, boy was I wrong… so more trying to learn all this new BS….. so blah blah blah…. that my story…. sorry for the rambling if anyone made it this far without falling asleep…. ;)

    Well I will say your tables look great! Really like the scooby kiss mod and the pumpkin Ryan table! Explains why the look so nice with graphic design in your background! Vp needs more of these “original” types of tables.
