    I want to play some pinball on my computer. Specifically, I want to
    play The Six Million Dollar Man pinball. I have Visual Pinball, the
    ..vpt (the table file), the Bally.VBS file and PinMAME.

    When I use Visual Pinball to run the game, the art comes up on
    the screen, but when I attempt to play the game, another partial
    screen window opens up showing the scores, the credits and the ball in
    play (unlabeled) and that is all that happens. Oh, I get a few sounds
    like thet game is powering up, but no action on the screen other than
    the score flashing 00. I tried what I could think of doing, but to
    no avail.

    If there is another more appropiate newsgroup than here, PLEASE
    tell me. TIA

    Make sure your pc is correctly levelled--either that or adjust the
    sensitivity of the tilt sensors

    Sounds like your install went ok.

    reposition the floating black window over where it fits on the table
    5 - insert credits (may need a few presses for 1 game)
    1 - start a game (press again for more players)
    enter = release ball
    left shift = left flipper
    right shift = right flipper
    Z = tilt left
    space = tilt center
    / = tilt right.

    You can even do the flipper combos on these tables to get the easter eggs.
    Adams family gold is my preferred table.
