VPD is a site dedicated to the preservation of virtual pinball and its data.
Our focus is on Visual Pinball, Future Pinball, and many more pinball simulators.
DPNetwork is a network of sites that are fully supported by the Virtual Pinball Community.
VPD are not one of them.
Content uploaded to any virtual pinball sites are created by community members.
The community members upload this content for free use and share to the community of there choice. However no one should have a monopoly over this publicly shared content. Everyone deserves to have access to all the content not just a selective bunch.
Vpuniverse consistently bans people for there opinions and even myself for sharing publicly shared content
They just want a monopoly on there content.

Visual Pinball is a freeware and open source available video game engine for pinball tables and similar games such as pachinko machines.
