    Default Pinball LED video emulator or files?

    Hi Guys,

    I am working on creating a half hour of visuals for a chip tune band / DJ set I'll be doing in May.

    My band mates and I will be wearing these jackets with LED displays built into them.

    It occurs to me that this display would be perfect to run some of the classic 2-tone LED videos from some of our favorite pinball games. It seems like most of the PinMAME And VR Pin emulation sites are just leading me to spam filled dead ends. Does anyone know of somewhere I can find the video files or emulated versions of the LED videos in classic pins of the late 80s and early 90s?

    Hi-Cool Idea
    I'd defo check out site below:
    http://www.vpforums.org
    It's run by Noah Fentz and I'd say it's THE virtual pinball site.
    I hope they can help. Andy

    I've taken a closer look at Vpinmame and I think it's pretty close. I guess the best thing to try to do is work on the software for the LED jacket so that it is emulating the dot matrix display of a pinball machine. Then try to suss out where the dot matrix video files are and translate them into a format that the LED jacket would recognize. I'm going to post a thread over at the vpforums. If I get it working I'll throw something up on YouTube.
