I'm a newbee and this was the easiest part to add to my homemade garage pinball machine.

Everything worked flawlessly. Thanks for a great piece of software.

I really like this frontend. I was able to get it up with logo artwork within minutes. I'm familiar with GameEX, so i'm ahead of the game a bit, but still simple for a newcomer. 

My only gripe is that Pinball FX2 is getting increasingly frustrating to setup. I've spent 4 days searching for answers and trying different things, only for it to still load to the table selection screen. For this continuing reason, I give it 3 stars for now. Pinball FX2 is my main interest. It has the best physics of any other pinball sim, and has some really good tables. Excalibur, World War Hulk and South Park are some of the top I must have.

Hello everyone.
Now I'm getting closer to the fabulous world of the Virtual Pinball.
Using both VP9 that VPX that Future Pinball.
Now I would like to try using Pinballx as Front End.
I signed up on the site and I created the account, but despite various
attempts can not download the setup file. Can you help me? Thanks

Pinball X is top notch for a frontend. I am an ex Hyperpin user. Pinball X is very easy to setup, and is easily customizable. It's still in active development too, which is great! It works with Visual Pinball, Mame, Future Pinball, and much more. Oh, and it's FREE!! I am not a demanding user, but even in it's beginnings I have had no issues at all. It's AWESOME!!

Thanks Tom for making this great frontend available to everyone.

Was having problems with this version 2.29  - getting error message expired. Solution was to add 3 lines at the end in the PBX config file. Worked perfectly.

[Partner]

DontDisplayUpdateMessage=True
Code=VpCabs1012

Once the error message was corrected and able to launch the program everything worked better than expected. Very intuitive, easy to setup game manager, w/ playfield images, wheel images etc. Also "settings .exe" is very easy to setup - just go through the various steps and pay care full attention to "working paths and "table paths". ( Currently using to manage FP tables)

Once everything is configured properly, launch PBX and you will be surprised how fast your tables load and unload. Can't get any better or easier than this Great Front End.

I highly recommend!

Thanks

Hi,

today I was annoyed again by the error message, preventing me from playing my pinball tables. A big "Thank You" again for this.
Why on earth is it not possible to change the error to a mere message or omit it at all on a cabinet?

A change log would be nice too, just to justify the need to update.

Michael

Having problems with this version has expired, I've have the newest 2.29 installed. I went to install a few more boards on my cabinet build after being away for 8 days and got the msg that this version had expired. I had installed the newest version, 2.29 because I got the same msg with the previous version, which I think it was 2.28. As it stands now I'm unable to use PBX to play any of the tables. And am curious why there's a need for the program to expire? I do like this front end and the program Game Manager thats with it. It makes my life so much easier then using HyperPin. Now all I need to do is get my Pin2DMD setup to work? I was wondering, has anyone gotten P2D to work and if so how?

 

An update to the Version expiring part, I found two solutions, one was blocking the program via Widows Firewall and all the things needed to do this or the easiest and the best solution was to add 3 lines at the end in the PBX config file. Worked perfectly.

Something is wrong with v2.28 or the server that checks the current version on startup, keeps failing with a message to update to latest ver, but this is the latest, only workaround that works is run it up with Ethernet cable disconnected...  I see lots having trouble on several forum websites, some came up with an .ini file fix, but no work for me and others. 

***UPDATE***

Was just notified that version 2.29 was released to fix the need to update version error/popup message...

Hello

On each PinballArcade update, I have to change the grid number in pinballarcade.xml to work on pinballx. Is there any way to call "my tables" instead of "all tables"?

thanks

I like PinballX, but I have a problem with the new version:  When I load it, it loads and says there are no tables.  This is strange because after configuring everything in game mgr, it worked exactly one time and that was it.  Also, I couldn't get any tables to show up on the front end until I deleted the sample ones.  I did that by going into databases and deleting the file "Visual Pinball".  My file is called "VP9 Tables".  When I launch from game mgr, the tables load.  Just not from Pinball X.exe.    So then I completely deleted Pinball X and did a fresh install.  This brought the same problems back, only now GameX online wouldn't work because my password would not save in the settings.   Conclusion:  This version is very, very buggy.  Is there a way I can download a legacy version?  I really need to get my cabinet working & I don't have time for this.  The previous versions worked great.

I uploaded the PINBALLXSETUP zip file to virustotal.com and it indicated there was adware in the file.

Antivirus                         Result                                                     Update
TrendMicro-HouseCall  PAK_Generic.005                                    20161119
Zillya                              Adware.OpenCandyCRTD.Win32.1128  20161118

 

As the result was 2 out to 56, I'm presuming it was a false positive.  Anyone had any issues with the current download?

See Comments tab for Version Expired workaround/fix if you are already running the newest version of PinballX.
