Hi all,

I used to play vpinmame a lot some years ago, and for whatever reason I never reinstalled it when I got a new computer. I remember hearing whipsers around that time about "future pinball" and lo and behold, I stumbled on this site years later. I'm very excited to get started again playing some of my favorites and hopefully playing around with my own designs at some point.

However...

I downloaded some tables and hit "play table" in the FP editor. The table loads, but I can't play. I tried Black Knight 2000, for example. The table loads. The "shot again" light is flashing. But hitting 5 does nothing. I can "nudge" the table, change the camera angles, etc. But I cannot start the game. I tried 5 other tables and couldn't do anything either.

I know I am missing some basic stuff. Please help!

Thank you.

Did you press "1" to start the game, by chance?

Please set model quality to high and run FP as admin in xp sp3 compatibility mode, while you're at it.

Yes, I had pressed 1, but didn't try XP SP3 mode. That did it!

Thanks!!

Hello,

Haha, you're answer can be wrongly interpreted (I had at first read, but I understand afterwards it was not rude but only thankfull ;)).
By the way, check this topic if you have other issues: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1709

We really have to finish that FAQ... but no time :(

Have fun,
Alex
