    pass [DESCRIPTION] as parameter

    I get it... just trying to do a few different tests to help you troubleshoot...
  2. Pablo Smiraglia

    pass [DESCRIPTION] as parameter

    Tom, one more test. If I reverse the parameters, I still get the DESCRIPTION variable name rather than the value.

    [wrong thread]

    pass [DESCRIPTION] as parameter

    How could cmd get “[DESCRIPTION]” as a parameter? I will try passing DESCRIPTION as %1 and see if that makes a difference... will let you know
  5. Pablo Smiraglia

    pass [DESCRIPTION] as parameter

    The log shows PBX passing the parameter correctly, though you can see form the cmd output that it is passing the variable name instead (CMD has no knowledge of the variable name, so it is clear that PBX is passing it... I don‘t think there is a quotes issue on the cmd side. maybe a quotes issue in my settings? log.txt

    pass [DESCRIPTION] as parameter

    Btw, I am now away form the cab so I cannot test, but I wonder if the issue is with passing 2 parameters (eg would passing just DESCRIPTION work?) I know that was never able to pass anything other than tablefile in the past (I tried with type and manuf). I can test this in a couple of days. Txs.

    not able to record or screen capture

    strange about GPU recording... for teh same table, same XML entry, it did not capture BG when enabled, but it did when disabled. I have a real DMD, so I cannot test LCD DMD capture. I have not hit the focus issue since upgrading, and I have probably launched VPX from within PBX over 30 times. I run PBX in windowed fullscreen mode as I have found it less troublesome than fullscreen in the past (one of those things where it solved a problem and I never went back).

    pass [DESCRIPTION] as parameter

    maybe a misspelling of the variable on mine or your side ? See the output from the script at runtime...

    pass [DESCRIPTION] as parameter

    Tom, is it possible to pass [DESCRIPTION] as a parameter to a launch before script? the help tip in the settings tool suggests i should be able to, but it does not seem to be implemented. this is what i'm trying to implement: REM add dmd image. if not dmd table try image or default IF NOT exist "c:\Pinball\PinballX\Media\Visual Pinball\Real Color DMD Videos\%2.mp4" ( start "" dmdext play -f "C:\Pinball\PinballX\Media\Visual Pinball\Default Images\No Real Color DMD.png" -d pindmdv3 -p com3 --no-virtual ) thanks!

    not able to record or screen capture

    with 2.94 i was able to trigger video recording with nvidia, and it successfully recorded the playfield in 1080p. it did not record the backglass, log attached. is this supposed to capture the backglass video? trying to record after launching from pbx works too. it did not overwrite an existing pf recording at first (see log). after deleting the pf recording, it succeeded. (see log 3). Additional comments: * the videos are recorded as tablefile.mp4 >> it would be great to have to option to save as description.mp4 * tables are captured/encoded in HD format >> it would be great to have th eoption to capture in 2k, and encode in HD, 2k or 4K i did hit a bug though: after succesfully recording and exiting the table PBX came back up but, although it was "sitting" in the "clones" list, it was reading the "pinball fx3 xml" (ie listing games in the pinball fx3 list, while stating thecurrent list was "clones"). all media was missing. I exited, reloaded pbx and everything looks fine. I'm attaching my xmls for reference (log 3 shows both the successful PF record and the return to PBX. I then disabled "GPU driver capture" and this time around both PF and backglass was captured (see last log). Looking good! another thing i noticed is that the loading images now show when exiting the tables back to pbx. not sure if that is by design... log.txt log.txt log.txt Databases.rar PinballX.ini log.txt

    oh, your previous comment: "Not the same as Alt-F9." threw me off. I will try again. the focus issue I see now is not pinup related

    not able to record or screen capture

    The path videos\captures is what I have configured in GEForce. is it possible to just grab this path and start/stop keys from registry ? in any case, I cannot test further as I cannot configure ALT.F9 on a side note, since 2.90 I notice that about 20% of the time I launch VPX, the topper video freezes, and about the same number of times (though not necesarilly at the same time the topper freezes, VPX does not get focus and I have to ALT.TAB. I have to go down to 2.89 for now.

    Topper "No Topper" default image and video support

    Well, actually not... Think of the case where I want the pinballx\Images\No Topper.mp4 file to be the default for all systems. If you keep placing one within \pinballx\{Visual Pinball|Future Pinball}\Default Images, then those will take precedence and I have to either replace or remove them. Why not create the folders with no files in them (or maybe the “About this folder.txt” file alone) ?

    not able to record or screen capture

    Is this a pitch to 2.90 or 2.91? I dropped 2.91 while away from the cab. I should be back by the end of the week. In the meantime, can you clarify what the right workflow is to record from game manager and from pbx ? Is recording automatically started and stopped when triggered form game manager ? Does the record key work when launched from pbx only ? In my screenshot above, have I configured the Nvidia record keys (ALT+F9 in my case) correctly ? The setup tool only took ALT and F9 separately, so I’m not positive it will react to concurrent presses (as Nvidia expects)

    not able to record or screen capture

    I'm out of town now, but should be able to try again later this week. Note that I have also tried launching from PBX, not just launching form the game manager. also, because of the custom lists behavior, I'm also keeping system lists, so each VP game is listed twice like I've done forever.
