Yeah, you need this file as is, placed inside your roms folder:
PinMAME Romset (5.00)

Try to look inside this roms folder and make sure you have the file called "simpparty.zip", it can't be named anything else, you could also try to download all of the roms as mentioned earlier from here:
http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=4674

Quote:
Const RomSet1 = "simpprty" 'USA
Const RomSet2 = "simpprtf" 'France
Const RomSet3 = "simpprtg" 'Germany
Const RomSet4 = "simpprti" 'Italy
Const RomSet5 = "simpprtl" 'Spain

Hey you are the best bro. I think that was the problem. It was naming the rom Simpprty (4). I renamed the rom to what it should be and tried again. Ah now I have 2 killer pinball games. Thank you so much

Would you happen to know the rom and pin for attack from mars. I have a version but it never boots up it just closes down

Thanks again. Simpsons party is killer. Used to cost me almost a buck to play each time at the pizza place up the street.

How many pins do you have ?

Glad you got it working!

Here's an Attack from Mars Table for Visual Pinball 8:
http://www.pinballnirvana.com/UpDown...-lid-1426.html

I looked at one Attack from Mars Table and this was mentioned in the script:

Quote:
Const RomSet1 = "afm_113b" 'arcade rom - with credits
Const RomSet2 = "afm_113" 'home rom - free play
This indicates the script needs one of these rom sets, these files would be afm_113b.zip or afm_113.zip, you can find them at the IPDB here:
http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=3781
OR at Pinball Nirvana here:
http://pinballnirvana.com/modules/Up..._PinMAME/roms/


The Attack from Mars table you have might be for Visual Pinball 9, you can find a VP9 program file here:
VP Program, Essential Files

Hey


Thanks Attack from Mars works first shot. Only problem is everything plays nice on it but the sound effects are real loud but the tables music and the voices are real low. Dont think the other tables had that problem. Is it the rom or a setting i could change ?


thanks again

I will look into that for sure

I just downloaded and setup Tales from the Crypt. Killer !



Question. Most of these killer tables like Scared Stiff and all seems to be on VP9. You gave me the download link but question will it overwrite the old VP8 i have on my system now ?


I will be putting this on my HTPC that i built myself. I was just using the Laptop to figure out how to set everything up. Games like the Simpsons Party are taxing my small onboard graphics on this slow laptop. I have a big Nvidia card in my other case

This is killer !!!!

Thanks for all your help.. I may need it again soon

Here's a direct link to a VP9 .exe file, you can unzip this into your VP folder and it won't disrupt anything (don't rename the file), just use this .exe file to play a VP9 Table.

Hey boss could i ask ya where you download your table and roms ? is it from this forum ? Seems everyone i try from VPforums i can not get to load the table right. Everyone that i get from the sites you have work.


Im trying to get theatre of magic. I have the table but do not know which rom. I tried to run the table and get it to crash and tell me but it did not give me the normal message i see. So i couldnt copy the rom file needed


But it did try to boot up VP9

The files @ vpforums should work fine, make sure you are using the vp9 exe file for VP9 Tables, they probably have newer versions. Pinball Nirvana's downloads are here:
http://www.pinballnirvana.com/UpDownload.html
AND here:
http://www.pinballnirvana.com/forums/downloads.php

The VP8 table of Theatre of Magic here:
http://www.pinballnirvana.com/UpDown...-lid-1555.html

Requires this rom file tom_13 or tom_13.zip:
http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2845
PinMAME Romset (1.3X)

Sorry about all of the links but the previous problem was the renaming of the rom file, these rom files can't be renamed.
