  1. As most of you that have been following the Atari VCS saga, it was not ready for Spring/Summer 2019 release this year and has been pushed back to Fall/Winter 2019. Following is the latest update Hello Backers! In case you missed it: AMD has now officially announced its new Ryzen™ Embedded R1000 SoC in a press release on April 16th, 2019. They proudly mention the Atari VCS partnership and included the following quote from Atari: “With the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 powering the Atari VCS, we can support the 4K 60fps HDR content that users expect from a modern, secure gaming and entertainment system.” said Michael Arzt, COO of Atari Connected Devices. “AMD’s new Ryzen Embedded SoC will also help protect the VCS’ environment and content as we support an unprecedented open-access model that allows Atari’s highly-creative community to install any other operating system side by side with the Atari OS.” You can also check out AMD’s Ryzen Embedded R1000 release trailer here. Below are the specs straight from AMD: We are thrilled to be among the first companies to utilize this exciting new AMD product. We are also honored to be partnered with AMD and incredibly pleased with how well everything is proceeding with the Atari VCS project thanks to their assistance. The team really appreciated all the great feedback regarding the updated design of the Atari VCS after our last update! Stay-tuned for a deep-dive into all the details of the final Classic Joystick and Modern Controller designs in our next Medium blog coming soon. Thanks again! — The Atari VCS Team
  2. Have you tried an .mp4 video instead of .flv? Also, do you have a mix of .mp4, .flv, .wmv, etc. ? I have witnessed where others were able to remedy some video display issues by switching to .mp4 and/or changing all video media to the same format.
  3. I reccomend uninstalling klite and using just the LAV codecs recommended by the author.
  4. Please attach copies (no copy & paste) of your pinballx.ini and log.txt files when reporting and issue. Additionally, you will need to note whether or not you have the latest LAV codecs installed.

    GameEX AE Setup

    In my setup, I disabled the pop-up description (via edit of the gameex.ini) as I found it to be a little distracting with the video themes running in the background. I also have a default video theme running for those games that do not have one created for them.
  6. If you have not done so already, I would recommend contacting Tom Speirs the PinballX author before soliciting for a commercial project that might not meet with his OK for use with PinballX.

    You can probably exercise more precise control putting the content of your choice in the marquee path. Glad you were able to get it sorted to your liking!
  8. I believe if you are on MAME 0.194 or higher, Bezels are on by default. The Advanced Mame Settings > Use Bezel should be set to Dont Use Bezel. This setting turns off displaying the GameEx bezel in your MAME games. You control the individual bezels displayed within the MAME ROM by hitting TAB while in game. You will place your MAME Bezels in their respective folders by ROM name unzipped in the MAME>Artwork folder. This video does a fairly good job of explaining and viewing on YouTube will give you access to various links including Orion Angels bezel set. Let me know how you get on with this.
  9. Happy birthday, @gStAv! Thanks for your many pinball audio contributions helping to fill the aural gaps in the pincab experience!
  10. Try looking on the threads here... https://www.gameex.info/forums/forum/59-pinballx-media-projects/
  11. Besides Krakerman's excellent work, here are some links to others: John Merritt Orion's Angel Not sure if any of the links are still alive. There will be some overlap but that is ok. Choices are good!
  12. Where you have Godzilla as the progenitor of almost all Kaiju flicks, Ultraman is the great-grandfather of all things Power Rangers, Gundam, you name it. Yeah, they are cheesy and some of the stories are just there for the sake of making something eat an unhealthy dose of specium ray, but I remember pretending my sisters were a kaiju that needed to eat a karate chop and specium ray combo platter for getting into my stuff!

    It looks like it is displaying marquees in the spot you indicate. I do not use Marquee Masher, so I don't know if what I am going to suggest is possible. My suggestion, if Marquee Masher allows you to point to the path of your marquees, do so. Then, within the GameEx Arcade MAME settings, point the marquees path to an empty folder or remove the path altogether. Let me know if this works.
  14. A video capture of the issue may also be of help. Seeing exactly what you are describing.
