    New to this forum and new to virtual pinball.

    I never thought I’d be attracted to these machines over the real ones but they have come a long way so I have decided to take the plunge.

    I don’t own a VP machine yet but I know I want it to be able to run VPX. Any special requirements for this?

    Thank you and I look forward to this forum!

    Thanks RandR.

    I own a Bally Space Invaders that I just spent several hours adding an LED conversion to.

    I love it but it’s kind of boring.

    I will be doing a lot of research before I try to build a VP machine.

    Nice!

    but that’s the problem with pinballs…you get bored I mean it’s human nature to want something and play the heck out of it for a few weeks and then want something else. That’s what makes visual pinball so great! You have one machine and can enjoy every pinball ever made. With that said real pins are still great for the collection

    I use an old Dell Studio XPS 435t/9000 ($200.00 on Ebay) with a Radeon RX460 4GB video card ($120.00). The most important part is an i7 or better, 4 cores, running 8 threads or more processor, video card, then everything else. I should buy an SSD because they help a lot when running VP and many other programs, maybe soon. I have all new stuff but here are some of my old pics. One day I will build a cab, LOL, humm. I’m so cheap and lazy, hahaha.
