26th November, 2016 - Introducing VPDB

Introducing VPDB.

With three years in the making I am pleased to introduce to you VPDB.

VPDB is a collaboration between developer freezy with sponsorship from Spesoft/GameEx (creator of the PinballX and GameEx front ends).

Completely free to its users and contributors for the foreseeable future, VPDB is an innovative new project where people can share their digital pinball table recreations and everything else related to virtual pinball.

With this project comes innovation and change. We need your support to make it a success as without users and contributors it is nothing. However, if you cannot give that please at least respect the effort, time and skill that has gone into this project.

We have tried to do something pretty cool here out of passion for the digital pinball community, and it's just the beginning: VPDB comes with an open API that allows any application to plug-in easily. The website is just the first example of what's possible.

There is more to come!

(We are still in beta phase but ready for you to come over and use).

Big fixes and improvements to GameExtender. It is now working smoothly again in a browser for starters. The server will now automatically bind to all adapters so there is no need to set the IP address and the viewer will now connect to the local host if it cant reach the specified IP.

The icing on the cake is GameExtender now has a GameEx Online incarnation. No setup required. Works just the same albeit slower as its client server. Just click the option on your page at with this release of GameEx and when GameEx is running.
