Emulate Pinball with PinMame-HW

Emulate Pinball with PinMame-HW

Regis and Brad sent in their open source Pinball emulation / control software – “PinMame-HW is a derivative work of PinMame, whereas “HW” stands for “HardWare.” PinMame emulates the hardware of many (if not most) pinball machines by using the original ROM code. PinMame can emulate as many as 484 pinball machines, such as Bally, Williams, Stern, Data East, to name a few.

PinMame-HW has been modified to allow it to control the real pinball hardware with some simple custom electronics. The source code is made available, the schematics are also made available.”Link.
