  1. Well. Alls well that ends well. Got all that done. The pbx recorder is very fine! Happy Happy. I just noticed btw Carny that you uploaded the modded roms for haunted house.I couldn't get those to work with JPs VP9 table or the later Night mod. Is there a trick? Or is someone somewhere working on HH for VPX? That was the first pintable I ever played. An arcade in Aviemore, Scotland early 1980s. Must have been brand new. It made quite an impression on me.
  2. Thanks there. I understand, and I'm not too obsessive. Well. I just got done importing all my missing wheel art, flyers etc. I left this one to last. I'd been selecting the table description from the IPDB table list (Second Select option in the game manager) before seeking the art using the import feature. The inverted commas/quotation marks in the IPDB listing do seem to be the problem. I just deleted them. Now working. I'm just glad to find the solution.I feel like Sherlock Holmes now. Ahhh- A Sherlock themed pintable? Hmm. Rathbone, Downey Jr., or Cumberbatch? Now...PBXrecorder with 300 tables. Then I'm just playing for a month I swear!!! Cheers guys.
  3. OK. I found the problem in the XML file... <game name="Chicago Cubs Triple Play (Gottlieb 1985)"> <description>Chicago Cubs &quot;Triple Play&quot; (Gottlieb 1985)</description> <rom></rom> <manufacturer>Gottlieb</manufacturer> <year>1985</year> <type>SS</type> <hidedmd>True</hidedmd> <hidetopper>True</hidetopper> <hidebackglass>False</hidebackglass> <enabled>True</enabled> <rating>0</rating> </game> This entry caused the hang/crash. Not sure how it got like this. Mistype. Well Phew. Nonetheless.
  4. Does the .ini file help any? I guess I have to start again and save more often.
  5. Good Morning.Sleep took me. And hello again Draco sir. Here's the .ini PinballX.ini
  6. Artwork matching error? Here's the log... log.txt
  7. Okay. It seems to be the VP XML that's at fault. If I remove it from the databases folder PBX starts up fine. Would like to find the mistake. My last backup has about 100 less entries. Hmm. So it works fine with the old XML. Back to the clicking?
  8. Hi, The Game Manager won't read my VP XML. It appeared to crash on saving about 20-30 changes, and now has an invalid string/char exception every time it tries to read my VP XML. PinballX won't start anymore and just closes to the desktop at once. Other XMLs for FP, PBFX2 are unaffected and are still readable in the app. I hope the following is helpful. My OS is set to German. BTW the VP XML file itself looks fine. I've attatched it too. Windows 10. PBX latest install. It's been working fine. Help.

  9. Hallelujah! Working now! I'm back. What a saga that was. Holey moley. I've done a new clean install of Windows 10 on a nice empty SSD. I'm running the anniversary version (1607 with updates to). It was clear at once how much better the system is running for me. So I reinstalled VPX, FP, PFX2, TPA and got them all working on the new system. Now I've just installed Pinball X and got it setup. All media seems to be working as it should. Awesome. I found one error/oversight in the setup wizard though. I initially had my login name spelled incorrectly. The verify feature at the end then let this pass as okay.It took me a while to workout why the game manager was spinning but doing nothing. It would be good if verify caught incorrect login details and reported it. Should I post this elsewhere? Anyway. Thanks for all the help again. I hope I can return someone the favour sometime. Windows 10 Pro 64bit V.1607 Build 14393.1198 Core i7-2600 3.4Ghz ; 8GbRam ; SSD; MSI GTX1050ti oc
  10. The app does seem to be doing "more" than I expect of it. Although finding all the bits (Table, rom, b2s, media pack) is something of a right of passage, I think the "download all media" feature is def. the civilised way to go and I applaud the man for adding it. I'd like to try a previous version just to see.
  11. I think the whole system has gone cockamarroo. If I don't get on further tommorrow I'm going to back up my tables and do a fresh install. I have a gut feeling Win10 will work better with the GTX1050ti though (Is DX12 relevant here?).
  12. Not sure what I'm looking for. Seems to be alot of errors and warnings in Administrative (User Defined) and in Protocols for Windows Apps. Some stuff from the Shark Codecs I tried and then deleted. Lots of general stuff Care to take a look? I saved these in English although my system is running in German (and I'm scottish) BerlinPinXSystemEvents1.evtx BerlinPinXSystemEvents2.evtx
  13. Sorry I think I caused a missunderstanding b4. I'm on Win7pro here. I was wondering whether upgrading to 10 might help. Old PC/OS with new GPU is maybe a problem here.
  14. I think you could be right. Seems a shame to have to do another clean install when VP10, FP, and PBFX2 are all working fine on 2 monitors but PinballX isn't happy. Could it just be the new download features of the Game Manager? It seams like it's a mixture of codecs and game manager voodoo. I just don't know.
  15. Pushing the select menu for a PBFX2 table in the game manager brings up alternately a blank or a an IPBDB list of real tables. What fun.
