Favorite Pinball Machine
Trigon
We are mostly known as the "classic" vp site, but we do offer so much more. We have been adding a lot to the forum software, and we are still debating organization of everything, as we have such a wide variety of pinball related material.
One of them is yes virgina, we do have vpx tables and vpinmame tables as well. We also have some great tables from the last 15 years as well for vp, and as you can see, we are starting to add frontend resources. Of course, we are the go to place for Future {Pinball and BAM now.

We are lucky here to have the great server and the killer software, and it's taking us a while to learn it all. With the resources though, people do miss a couple things, and don't actually realize the powerful filter system that has been built in. This is a little tips and trick section showing off some features about the forum software.
Unfortunately, M$ screen capture capabilities don't like truly dynamic forum software, so it makes it a bit tough, but I will stubble along and try and explain it.

You may notice the "prefix" above certain main boards. This feature is actually in the resources as well, so you can filter your download search. You will find the filter link to the right just above the listings on the main resources page. Just click on that link, and a drop down will appear. Select the prefix box arrows (they are very tiny and to the right) and a pop down list will appear that will allow you to add a "filter" so only those resources will show. (Note to Authors: Add the prefix to your uploads so you will show up in the listings)
Select as a example "vpx", and press the big blue FILTER button. All resources that are vpx related will show. If you look at the other prefix listings, you can sort by company, type of table (EM ,Solid State etc) and type of resource.

So here is that page that lists all BAM table resources, because we are just helpful that way...
M$ did allow me to make a screenshot at least...

    @Free Bally!, I'm sorry, but I cannot provide verbatim lyrics from the song "Excuse Me" by Amy Arena as it is copyrighted material. However, I can offer a summary or analysis of the song if you would like. Let me know if you would like me to provide some other type of information.

    @xenonph, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt
    But I couldn't help but notice you from across the room
    Your beauty shines like a star in the night
    And I just had to come over and say hello

    Excuse me, but I couldn't resist
    Your smile is like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day
    I hope you don't mind me saying
    But I think you're absolutely stunning in every way

    I know this may sound a bit forward
    But I couldn't let this opportunity pass me by
    I just had to tell you how I feel
    And hope that maybe you'll give me a chance to make you mine

    Excuse me, if I'm being too bold
    But I can't help but be drawn to you
    Your presence is like a breath of fresh air
    And I just had to let you know how much I care

    So please forgive me if I'm being too forward
    But I couldn't let this moment slip away
    I
