  1. No possible to play table video 4k

    Try ffplay or mpc-hc? Or it just may require a third party lib that doesn't normally get installed with VLC. For this solution to be workable for a JJP type display, the transparency issue has to be worked out. How else to blend video with scoring? Of course, there is already a platform for JJP type display. P-ROC SDL2 such as Horsey's Evil Dead table.
  2. No possible to play table video 4k

    May take some research but I would think that you could produce videos with an alpha channel (overlays/hologram effect) with ffmpeg. VLC should play it. If playback had to happen on the playfield and you still want exclusive full screen, well, in that situation you would be SOL. I'm interested to see how this progresses if the tech can be used to reproduce existing toppers with event-driven animations (e.g., the flopping fish on FT). Otherwise, I can see this being abused to tart up a table to the nth degree. If I wanted to watch videos, I'd go watch friggin' Netflix. *grumble, grumble.

    I’ve had well over six months of downtime on my cab this year. Not much time and no money to fix it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Exiting future dmd when loading visual pinball.

    So, you are using the FutureDMD plug-in to display information on your DMD display and wanting to display a DMD video on your topper? When PBXRecorder records a DMD video it is going to save that output to a media DMD Videos folder. You will have to move files to Topper Videos folder. That’s a different issue than VP DMD displays losing focus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Exiting future dmd when loading visual pinball.

    He's referring to this: It's built to reside in memory while PinballX is running. Might be easier just to have a little script as "Launch After' for each system to bring DMD to focus.
  7. No possible to play table video 4k

    I don't have 4K so I don't know if it works or not. Three screens running 4K just for attract videos seems like overkill to me. I would say the same thing about HD running 60 fps on three screens. It's possible this is just too much of a load. Shadowplay at highest settings takes up hundreds of Mb per minute even at 1080p. PBXRecorder downsamples and compresses to produce output that's about 10Mb or so per minute (no audio). How about just for test purposes, can you disable backglass and DMD and see if it will play if there is only the playfield video to disolay? Otherwise, you will want to consider compressing the file. It's just attract mode. It doesn't have to be lossless, right?

  9. [RESOLVED] PBX unusable due to extreme stutter.

    PinballX can run windowed, full screen. Fact is, I've never run PinballBX exclusive full screen so that I could get working video backglass support for FX2. I do launch VPX as exclusive, full screen. And it works just fine.
  10. Pinball FX 3 - How To

    Just create a copy of the xml file in the same folder. Read this for details on custom lists and groups:
  11. My opinion for what it is worth: mod what you want to your heart's content; don't publish them without permission. Namsan's base of operations is I figure someone there will know how to reach him.

    dmdext has nothing to do with PinballX. Leave your requests and bug reports for dmdext at their project pages:
  13. Strange issue with Pinball FX2 Media and Pinball X

    Disable file matching. System is probably getting a little confused because I imagine that all of these files have names that start off as some variant of "Star Wars - ..." Look at your FX2 database xml file. Make sure that the file name of the video you intend to use matches the value of the description tag exactly. Watch for spaces, dashes, etc.
  14. PinballX Menu Crash

    There have been different back glass videos created by different authors over the years. All available on the FTP. If the videos you are using are relatively large in size then try something smaller. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You've seen this, right? It's an old document, but the section on creating custom groups still applies.
