  1. @Draco1962 Thank you soooooo much for replying. Literally was wasting hours trying to figure out how to set that up! I’ll check out the feature request and get it added there!
  2. Greetings All, Can anyone tell me if I’m wasting my time trying to figure this out. Overall I want PinballX to launch to System Wheels (Wheel Image of FX2, FX3, etc) then once one is selected it would go to another wheel showing all games. I know you can create lists, which I have done but I’m trying to have an actual Wheel Image of all my systems which lead to the games. Possible?
  3. Just circling around on this one, I think I figured out the issue and overall it's a timing issue. If you create a BAT file that launches dmdext (but have a TIMEOUT of something like 11) it will work perfectly and without issue on every table.

    DMDEXT and PinballX

    Thanks Mike! So turns out we had everything setup the same but it still wasn't working for me; BUT I did figure this all out. So it looks like it was a timing issue. For whatever reason when dmdext would "launch before" Pinball FX3 it was clashing with PinballX still displaying the default "real" DMD video. So what I did was create a .BAT file for dmdext and added TIMEOUT 11 so it was a delayed launch of dmdext; now it's working! Using Windows 10, Alienware Alpha (for nice small footprint). Thanks again Mike!
  5. Greetings wonderful Pinball People! My computer recently died (lost all my setup) and I’m starting fresh again. I have everything working MINUS dmdext does not work through PinballX. If I launch dmdext via CMD outside of PinballX it works like a charm but when I use the “Launch After” with PinballX it stays black. Oddly enough I can see dmdext is booting via PinballX and it says it’s receiving frames—but again blank. I seem to remember something about changing the name of a DLL (could have sworn it was changing pindmd64.dll to pindmd.dll)—but alas that is not working. Edit: Using PinDMDv3 and the 64bit versions of dmdext and pinDMD.dll. No errors in the pindmd.dll log. But please let me know what I can provide (logs, etc).
  6. Got it haha! Yeah I see it now. Unfortunately following his above instructions didn’t solve my issue. For me I had to disable DMD previews (by renaming the .dll) for Pinball Arcade to start working again. Such a bummer but oh well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    DMD & FX3

    Greetings BrandonLaw, I literally have the exact same issue. Those parameters don’t seem to work. I’ve worked around it by creating a BAT file but the downfall is you need to run it as admin—so my fix was to then make it an EXE and do a Launch after. Overall it’s working like a charm now but it was a HUGE pain in the butt. If you don’t find any answers, let me know and I can write up my process of using a BAT / EXE to close DMDExt after changing tables. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. So I have an odd issue that just came about that is similar but also different with the recent PinballX release. Using PinDMDv3 I have real DMD previews but when I launch Pinball Arcade dmdext crashes so DMD doesn’t work in game. If I boot Pinball Arcade outside of PinballX with dmdext works like a charm. Seems to be an issue specifically with PinballX and DMD previews. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Figured it out! If anyone else runs into this issue you need to make sure Steam launches with Windows. If PinballX is what is launching a table (which then causes Steam to launch) you’ll get this error. If Steam is already running in the background you’ll be Launch error free!

  11. Thanks! I saw these threads but they seemed pretty old and didn’t really go anywhere. I understand it’s a Steam error but I’m wondering how others get around it—surly someone figured out how to bypass the message? Or overall I’m just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this currently—can someone confirm? If not then it’s for sure something I need to continue to investigate. Thanks again!

  12. Hey folks! Down to my last issue with my cabinet. When I launch any table from PinballX that is Pinball Arcade (using camera mod) I get a Steam prompt that says “Allow Game Launch” showing the parameters %command%. I don’t recall this happening until recently—anyone else running into this issue? I’m thinking it PinballX configuration that’s incorrect but I’m not sure. Thanks in advance!

  13. THANK YOU! Both issues resolved! Only one issue left which is Steam throwing an “Allow Game Launch” error from PinballX. I bumped another thread where someone is experiencing he same issue. Hope we can get that resolved and the. I’M DONE! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bumping this thread. I have the same issue with the “allow launch” when booting from PinballX. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
