"PinMame is a combination of emulator and simulator. The software emulates the computer inside the pinball machine (to react on bumpers, flippers and display the scores) but simulates the playfield with a digital ball reacting to programmed physics."
I think this is only partually true. PinMAME is a true emulator. The simulation of the playfield and physics is done with Visual Pinball. I'm not sure what the connection to "Visual PinMAME" is though. 18:52, 10 April 2006 [[user:Jelwell|Jelwell]
I changed the text a little, please review if this is better. Felsir 02:00, 11 April 2006 (EDT)
"but there are no ROMs or software to emulate, just the hardware." Pinmame uses roms and performs emulation. It's sufficient to call Visual Pinball a simulator but Pinmame is a true emulator in the same way that MAME is.
