    So the loadvpm that’s in all the rom driven tables is something like:

    LoadVPM “02000000”, “S11.VBS”, 2.4
    Sub LoadVPM(VPMver, VBSfile, VBSver)

    So where do the numbers for that come from?  I’m currently building a system 80 or two, well ok, maybe 3, so have SYS80.VBS, but what should there be for the VPMver and VPBver variables, and how do we know that?????  To date I’ve just been copying what old tables had, which seems to work, but is there a guide to this or what?  I’ve looked at a few of my system 1 builds and they have several different vers in them too.

    I’m happy that you asked this question. I’ve been wondering about the same thing myself.  This is the only thing I’ve found about it. But it does not go into details.

    The LoadVPM line executes the routine "Sub LoadVPM" directly below it, passing in the required values for VPMver,
    VBSfile, and VBSVer. This routine was written originally by WPCMAME to allow error checking during the setup process
    and loading of external files. If a user is missing the vbs file required, or it is an older version than the one
    required, or if Visual PinMAME is too old to be used for this game, this routine will create an error window with a
    bunch of error messages. Nearly all Visual PinMAME tables have this routine in them, or something similar to this
    routine. If the files pass these checks, Visual Pinball is able to run the table.

    I was poking around in the vbs files and the sys80.vbs has a line that says:

    ‘Last Updated in VBS v3.36

    So I stuck a 3.36 in the vbsver slot and the table I’m working on still runs fine with no errors, at least for me.  Have no idea what the VPMver would be, it kinda looks like an 8 digit binary character (or is that 1 digit  :wacko: ) but not with those numbers in there.  I posted this over on that other site as well as the pinmame guys are there more… or something..

    Ah. So – Tom and Jerry should really have used “32468300” :mail:   :good: ( added 3.2 r4683 )

    Hmm “030204060803” .. few too many. “03024683” maybe ?
