    Well, you are correct. Visual Pinball as a software program has been under development since 2000. And it keeps getting better and it will likely not be finished because there is always new technology to incorporate and improvements to be made. To be clear, Visual Pinball is hobbyist software. It is mainly an editor that allows authors to build their own virtual pinball tables. Users being able to play reproductions is simply a happy by-product. This does require some background knowledge/modest PC skills to properly configure. The software is full featured and endlessly tweakable (i.e., having so many options means it is not relatively easy to use). But, thousands of users have done it. Keep researching. PinballX is merely a front-end to centralize the launching of tables and making it look attractive. If the underlying emulation software is not configured correctly and is not fully working, PinballX absolutely will not fix it for you. You can certainly build a full size table with commercial emulator options. This may be the initial track for you as it is built for a consumer experience. Steam + Pinball FX3 + The Pinball Arcade

  3. I love VPX, but , sorry, it ain't real pinball. If you are coming into these forums as a pinball purist, you might as well turn around now and just go get a real pinball. I say this not as a collector myself. I only have the virtual cab, and I enjoy it, a lot, for what it is. All of it VPX, FP, FX3, etc. I would not hold up any of them as replacements for the real thing. Trashing FX3 because it isn't VPX is just silly.
  4. In the deep past, I've gotten around this issue by running PinballX concurrently with Task Manager. Why? Who knows? It's Windows. I'm not sure that this is still the workaround with recent versions of PinballX. Something to try.
  5. https://kodi.tv/ Modify keyboard or joystick settings so that you can navigate the menu.
  6. The exe is the compiled form of the source code in the ahk. Install AutoHotkey.
  7. Have you modified the script? You will need to if you are installing on a different drive. The script currently assumes that helper apps are installed in the root of C drive. Open the ahk in Notepad or any other text or code editor. Look for OBSPath and change it. Recompile. Also, I haven't run this in a couple of years. My cab has been down for a long time. This worked with OBS Studio a couple of years ago, but I don 't know if OBS has changed anything since then that might impact functions of the script. A benefit with the script is simultaneous capture of two or three screens. If all you need is playfield capture then you might find it easier just to use your graphic card's built -in capture. Output files will be large in size and it won't capture in batch, but in the end it may take you less time to finish the job than hassling with the script if it is continuing to be difficult to use. Guess it depends on how many FP tables you are trying to capture. Most people are heavy into VPX and may just have a few FP.
  8. Don't use the installer. Use the portable (zip) release on the project github. https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio/releases
  9. Jersey Jack Pinball logo - just a straight up export from the svg available on the JJP home page.
  10. I don't think anyone has gotten as far as putting it on a cab. Just that it is possible. Thought I'd ask since it is on sale, but I'll just wait and see how the situation develops as well.
  11. Curious to see if anyone has tried or wants to try to enable this one on PinballX/cabinet. ? https://store.steampowered.com/app/334940/Yokus_Island_Express/ https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=41496 Currently on sale at Steam.

  13. Sounds like you have it figured, though. Everything else is just fine tuning. Guess I'll put Wicked on my wishlist for the winter sale. Nice work!
  14. SlamIt: BigScore - does not have full screen, windowed mode. The ahk script is used to make the window borderless and then maximize. It's fake full screen, windowed. Because the game is landscape, the DMD image must be rotated on playback on a third screen. Freezy's dmdext does not support rotation. And I'm not so sure how effective it is at capturing what is in reality 1:4 aspect ratio and not 4:1. For me playback quality wasn't very good at all with SlamIt where it worked quite well for other apps. But since you are two screen, I think you can get by without rotation. You would rotate the backglass image so that it is oriented landscape similar to the playfield. If dmdext capture works for you then at least you would not have to rotate. Latency with this method was better with Win 7, when I first developed this solution, than with Win 10. All said, my cab has been down for nearly two years now with some sporadic up time. I haven't tested anything in a long time. YMMV
  15. Yes, that's well known: https://vpinball.com/forums/topic/lesser-known-features-of-vpinmame-dmd/ As long as you are comfortable with regedit then you can achieve results that are pixel perfect. It is easier for novices to the use the mouse for rough resizing then get into the registry and fine tune if you are willing to go the extra mile.
