  2. Well, I tried but went with Parsec streaming on the actual hardware. Has anyone else tried Parsec? Its free and pretty amazing. Getting fluid 60fps at 1080p and everything I throw at it works including Geforce Expereince video capture.

  5. when I opened my OG A2600 controller to clean and maintain it I noticed that the plastic was cracked by the force people were using. I saw what the issue was. The problem isn't with the controller being stiff, it's with there not being enough fulfillment when the contact switches were depressed. That happens without much resistance at all, but gives you no click to feel. That leads you to force it further against the plastic that stops it from bending further. That's why it feels so stiff, because your bending it too far and it's resisting being broken. It's an interesting case study in the psychology of controller design. We need feedback when the contact engages to be reassured the controller fulfilled our request. It also reveals how we react when we don't get that fulfillment...violently applying extra force to be damn sure it heard us...lol. It explains why we got so many blisters and remember that controller with true nostalgia (Nostos, means homecoming. -algia means pain. Nostalgia literally means "homecoming pain", but is used in the sense of homesickness or a painful longing for the past). The controller didn't respond in the way we expected it should, so we hurt it and ourselves in frustration. That's a axiom in psychology that can be applied to many different scenarios. We do it to people, pets, everything. It reveals a primitive impatience for unpredictability and ignorant retaliation against things that don't respond as we feel they should. Basicly, predictability is safety. Unpredictability is dangerous. It stress us out and engages the fight or flight response (a real biochemical phenomenon that bitch slaps reason into submission. Emotion is in the driver's seat untill the endorphins wear off).
    Actualizaciòn pinball 3.43
  6. As soon as Vol 4 comes out ill do the wheels.
  7. @simbamame put some wheels on the FTP /-PinballX-/Other Uploads/simbamame/fx3
  8. As usual, while making stuff work and after spending most of my time running FX3 games via the grid, I just realised that I hadn't setup a heap of games to run direct from PinballX! I'm struggling to find wheels (or anything else) for the Williams Volume 3 pack - Theatre of Magic, Champion Pub and Safe Cracker. Anyone got any leads for me? Only a few days until Williams Volume 4 ..... back to those active backglasses for me!

    very well, thank you very much for your help, I try that tomorrow morning and I tell you.
  11. Ok then, so the B2S is hidden behind the black pinballx backglass. Go to you visual pinball\ tables folder and take a backup copy of B2STableSettings.xml. Then add <FormToFront>1</FormToFront> to the top section of the original file. If that doesn't work post back and attach your B2STableSettings.xml file. (the other option would be to rollback to a previous of B2S Server and try that, but that wouldn't be fully compatible with pinup player i guess)

    I begin to understand but for me it is very difficult translation as I am French. Here is the background
  13. Pinballx is a front end and makes the screens black, so you don't see the icons of your desktop during loading. This version of b2sserver is specially created to hide your backglass if there are other windows/programs, because pinupplayer must popup in front. As Scutter says and what I tried to explain too( I'm not native English so sorry for the confusion) you need the entry in the b2stable file where you don't have a pinupplayer backglass to put this in front. I got 700 vpx tables and modify the registry and xml with simple find/replace statements. If pbx should pull this to front, it will overwrite proberly your pinupplayer backglasses
  14. I may have misunderstood.. Is the B2S running when VPX is launched from pinballx but hidden behind the pinballx black backglass screen, or is it not launching at all?

    no b2s after launch

    but the backglass (b2s) is present when I run with vpx. it's only when I run a table with pinballx that I do not have the b2s.
  16. Check @Outhere's post for that B2S Server https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=41903#entry424768 The key bit is in the middle "In the table folder you will find this file B2STableSettings.xml Make a backup of the file 1st Add this to the bottom of the top section in the File - <FormToFront>1</FormToFront> and it will become part of the default"

    yes for some tables I use pinupplayer, you think it can come from? why the b2s must be run in exe?
  18. Do you use pinupplayer for b2s files? If not, you can use an older verser of b2sserver. I tried the new b2sserver once and needed to put all in front (even on older pbx) Because didn't like the pinup backglass, i reverted back to older b2sserver and original backglasses. I thought you can add in xml file for your backglass the entry to put to the front

    hello, I agree but I have more than 300 tables and before that was not activated
  20. Don't you have to chechk the check box in that version to "Bring BG form to top" ? Thought that the version you use was for pinup player to hide the BG and bring the pinupplayer. And if you don't have a pinupplayer bg for that table, you need to check that box.

  22. Interesting! This has some incredible potential if it's done well. GOG GALAXY 2.0 will bring all your games and friends from PC and console platforms into one powerful app. Beta sign up
  23. @Slashbot Out of interest what are your VPX graphic settings, are you running exclusive full screen?
  24. What? You did not enjoy carpal tunnel syndrome along with your blister on a thumb blister blister? Blasphemer!

  26. I always hated the Atari joystick. Don't get me wrong, it was groundbreaking at release, but it was really so lacking in so many ways as a good console, and that joystick.....grrr, terrible! The new stick does a nice job with the retro style looks, just hope it's not a popsicle stick embedded in concrete like it's predecessor.
