Getting Started (updated Mar 2022)
 
Install Visual Pinball All-In-One Installer  
Try playing an Electro-Mechanical (EM) table first (No ROM file required)
  • Download "Seven Winner (Inder 1973).zip" from here: https://www.vpforums...&showfile=16263
  • Unzip the Seven Winner vpx file to C:\Visual Pinball\Tables
  • If you are setting up cabinet or multiple screens, download the "Seven Winner (Inder 1973).directb2s.zip" backglass file and unzip to C:\Visual Pinball\Tables
  • Run VPinballX.exe in C:\Visual Pinball folder
  • If you are setting up cabinet or multiple screens, you need to enable cabinet mode and enable B2S by doing the following: 
  •             Click on Preferences -> "Video/Graphic Options...".  Enable the "Use always FS backdrop settings (Cabinet/Rotated Screen usage)" option and click OK
  •             Click on Preferences -> "Configure Keys, Nudge and DOF...".  Make sure that "Disable B2S" option is unchecked and click OK
  • Now click on File -> Open and open "Seven Winner (Inder 1973).vpx" and click Play
 
Next, try a Solid State (SS) table that requires a ROM file
  • Download Attack From Mars, "Attack from Mars LE 3.04.zip" from here:  http://www.vpforums....&showfile=11603
  • Unzip Attack from Mars LE 3.04.vpx and extract the vpx file to C:\Visual Pinball\Tables folder
  • Download the Attack From Mars ROM, afm_113b, from here: http://www.vpforums....s&showfile=1340
  • Copy the "afm_113b.zip" file to C:\Visual Pinball\VPinMAME\roms folder.  (Do not unzip the rom file, leave it zipped)
  • If you have a pinball cabinet or multiple screens, download the Backglass from here: https://www.vpforums...&showfile=13596
  • Unzip the backglass file to C:\Visual Pinball\Tables folder and rename it to match the table filename, i.e. "Attack from Mars LE 3.04.directb2s"
  • Run VPinballX.exe
  • Open "Attack from Mars LE 3.04.vpx" and click Play
