What's new in Visual PinMAME:

Version 1.53, (June 1, 2006)
- added display rotation for the vpm window
- added the code from Jarez Bienz which allows you to set the display dd3 surface
- fixed a bug in the paths dialog (the first three weren't displayed anymore after a game was started)
- If you execute Controler.Run without a parent window VPM will now search for a running VPPlayer-Window and
if it's found it's used
- just before the VPM window becomes visible it is checked if the parent window is present and visible. If it's
not visible VPM will wait until it becomse visible (or a timeout of one second times out). Once the
parent window is visible it will be set as the active and foreground window
- selecting the vpm display and pressing escape will cause an error - known issue

Could anyone post a copy of omni and the file that goes with it please? I've been waiting for this, I want to MAME my bowler if I can.

Funny. having to use that ip hider I can get on VPF and post even, but I can't get a VPM table to work on.

Thanks a bunch guys. I shouldn't have to ask this, I know you all want to play with the new VPM your selves.

Thanks for the update on VPM Destruk and the crew. Being able to play TSPP on it made me reinstall the program. Since playing it I have finally been able to play the modes I've only heard about since me and newer Stern machines aren't easily accessable unless I drive 2hours. (Run on sentence for the teachers in the forum)

High Score: 400Million plus
Played Springfield Mystery Spot, some of the Revenge Modes, and finally got to see what Alien Invasion was all about. Cool Stuff!
