    Zaccaria Direct Launch for PBX

    I just went through and launched pretty much every table in Zaccaria from PBX. Every single one of them started so I really think the latest script is the good to go. I was able to trim down the 15 second delay before key presses are sent on my system down to 10 seconds so my load time improved but that will be more of an end-user tuning others will need to play with on their system. Hope it works for everyone!
  3. Ok! I understand what you mean. No global item via these ini files without re-programming the interface! As I can still run games via this ini file, I will just use it for only 2 or 3 company, Cave and PGM for exemple, It will just add two folders to the menu and won't be too intrusive... Thanks for your answers.
  4. I see that but it doesn't mean the GameEx Arcade can use the custom ini file to access the games within nor as a separate menu item like the ones that filter games by vertical, horizontal, multiplayer, genre, etc.

    I tested over lunch with the new version and it didn't fail finally. Hoping it is the final version for now. Yes, please try this one and see if you see the same.

    I'll try this one tonight too - I was still seeing some inconsistencies with the one from last night, but couldn't find a pattern. I tweaked the wait times a bit and it seemed to work. I'll post that one if you want to see it, if it's still functioning well today.

    Pinball FX3 Direct Launch Arcade Mode

    Hello all, Just wondering if there is currently any way to direct launch into the realistic physics "arcade mode" in PBFX3 for the Williams tables, as right now it seems like direct launch defaults to the "video-gamey" mode. Thanks!
  11. So, you don't think the KL25Z would work as well for a combined Arcade/Pinball cabinet? I thought MAME worked well with keyboard controllers which, if I understand it correctly, the KL25Z pretty much mimics. So, for a combined cabinet, you'd still choose the Xbox 360 control board? Thanks for your thoughts, I really appreciate it.

    One more thing to try is to set your system to run as windows and not full screen under PBAConfig on the DX11 tab.. With the new FCM for arcooda it might need that like the original TPA FCM version.

    Arcooda Direct Launch for PBX

    I'll try loading outside of PBX tonight, I have not done that yet and thanks for such detail. I am using the cabinet version, and did purchase a license for it. I have everything set to run as admin, and using build v2.01 and I see 1.71.10 cabinet running when I start arcooda pinball as well. I'll post back results around 5PM PST for running things through a cmd prompt.
  14. @pindapoe Search google for Hardlinks / mklink - its a workaround for many things.

    Capturing Real DMD (pinDMDv3 etc) Videos

    Might be a good idea to ask user WOB over at VPU.
  16. Excuse me, but I don't understand... You can see in my screenshot that using a custom ini add some things to the interface... No? There are those lines in the beginning of the . ini: [FOLDER_SETTINGS] RootFolderIcon custom SubFolderIcon custom Maybe they could be changed...
  17. I don't believe it is possible for someone to do anything other than to program the interface (GameEx Arcade) to add these menu filters as a feature request as was previously suggested.
  18. I'm progressing! I have took two ini files from a MameUI 0.197 install: Years.ini and Manufacturers.ini. I use the manufacturers as a custom ini file for my GameEx after cleaning it a bit, removing a lot of manufactureres, only keeping 40 of them. It works! Taito, Konami, Cave, Data East, etc... games are sorted. BUT there is still two problems: 1) The Manufacturers names don't appear in a "Manufacturer" folder. Every company appears in the Mame menu, before CPS games, CHD games, etc... It's a bit messy.... It would be perfect if a new folder could appears. Sure someone know how to do this. 2) every game is in double or triple now, in the list of is company an,d in the generale mame list... 3) Not a problem, but it would be cool if we can add icons for every company. There is one for Capcom, but none for the others. File is attached if someone would help. Manufacturer.ini
  19. For those who use real DMDs (pinDMD, pin2DMD, etc), how do you capture video of the real DMD for use in Pinball X? I use a pinDMDv3 1. Dumping frames from dmdext and converting to video results in a clear picture but skips a lot of frames (the fps option doesn't seem to affect frame dumping) 2. Video capture of the virtual DMD works better but when downscaling to 128x32, it is blurry when displayed in Pinball X I'm open to other methods of screen capture but my source capture seems perfectly fine; if only the DMD would accept a 1040x272 video...
  20. How did you capture the video for the real DMD video? 1. Dumping png frames using dmdext looks sharp but skips lots of frames 2. Video capture of virtual DMD then shrinking to real DMD dimensions of 128x32 seems to blur

    Another small change to see if adding a delay in the way the enter key is sent helps to get the table to start. If you current version is working no need to replace, this is more a "test" build to see if this make any difference. Thanks to everyone helping test this! LaunchZaccaria.ahk

    Very welcome, I can't answer why the settings.xml wouldn't exist on your system other than maybe something is corrupt or you are redirecting folders to a different drive. If you run Zaccaria and there is no Settings.XML it will create one automatically. Something to see would be if you change some settings, exit the software and then run it again. If the default settings remain changed then it has to be creating the file somewhere and it is just a question of finding it and then updating your Launch_Zaccaria script to use that folder instead of the the default location.

    Arcooda Direct Launch for PBX

    A few questions: 1) What version of TPA are you trying to use? Did you buy a license for Arcooda (Cabinet Mode) or are you just running standard Pinball Arcade PinballArcade11 .exe)? Assuming you did buy the Arcooda license. Your DX11_settings.dat looked fine to me and your FCM settings.ini all look good so lets do the following: 1) Find the PinballArcadeCabinet.exe and PinballArcade11.exe in your Pinball Arcade folder. Right click each file, go to properties, Compatibility tab and check the box saying "Run as administrator" 2) Go to your FreeCamMod directory and set the TPAFreeCamMod.exe file to run as administrator as well. 3) Repeat the progress for Run_Arcooda.exe and Start_Arcooda.exe and make sure those run as Administrator. 2) Confirm you are running the latest version of FreeCamMod [ Current build : v2.01 working with game version TPA 1.71.8 / Arcooda 1.71.10 Cabinet ] Now lets try and launch a table from outside PBX You should be able to launch a table directly outside PinballX if things are configured ok. Open a command prompt and go to your FCM folder TPAFreeCamMod.exe -arcooda -table fnhouse TPAFreeCamMod.exe -arcooda -table whitewater ( FreeCamMod.exe should start, Launch 1.71.10 build of Cabinet Mode. The mod should then send the keys and take you to the table. )

    Zaccaria Direct Launch for PBX

    Huh. I looked for it on a different pc where zaccaria is installed and it's right there. So the question is, why doesn't zaccaria create the file on my system, and if it's not able to, why doesn't it generate an error message. But I guess I'll just create the folder myself and take the files from the other pc, see if that works. Thanks again for the help.

    Thanks GAH - Got display rotation working. My only hurdle is the games still not selecting in PBA for some reason. Thank you so much!

    Separate "Workspace" from "Homespace?"

    Yeah I've actually been learning quite a bit with my RetroPie builds. I learned pretty quickly that I needed to make small edits, then multiple backups. Having it in a virtual environment is going to help a lot with messing around with things and figuring out what works without it damaging other things. That's my biggest concern. I also like that I can do this without having to shut down the computer and reboot it from another drive/partition - just run it simultaneously. I almost feel like I've been living under a rock and missing out on things everybody already knows about.
