List of Helpful Links for Install and Features of Visual Pinball

So the idea of this post, is try to bring together a bunch of the great information, floating around the internet with regards to Visual Pinball.  I know we are hearing more and more of the same questions from people, and i like to point these people in the right direction to help them fix thier problems.  So i thought why not try to keep everything in one place, as well will give us ideas what other questions should be answered.  I am just the collector of this information, a big thank-you to the people who have done all the hard work by actually writing this out.  If anyone has suggestions to add more links or information to be corrected, please let me know.

Color DMD’s

Another of Carny’s great explanations on how to add color DMD to your tables with great dots.  This still has a few bugs but I’m sure will get smoothed out in the future
