  1. Try this https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026268/windows-10-change-startup-apps
  2. I received the Thrustmaster TFRP Rudder Pedals a few days ago. While still tweaking settings and getting accustomed to using them with various sims on the PC and Xbox One, I must say that the experience is more immersive using the HOTAS - TFRP combo than using a gamepad or stick and keyboard combination. For the racing games, I am considering the Logitech G920 Driving Force Racing Wheel + Logitech G Driving Force Shifter Bundle $269.99. A bit more kit than the Thrustmaster flight HOTAS -TFRP combo, but offers solid build and cross-platform compatibility with force feedback.
  3. Please attach copies of your pinballx.ini and log.txt files for review. Thanks. P.S. Also, let us know what kind of controller you are using.
  4. The last will help you find the pinballx.ini and log,txt files for you to attach in reply. Generally a good idea to have these as part of any issue reporting.
  5. Attaching copies of the pinballx.ini and log.txt files may help a little.
  6. I recently purchased the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas One $78.99 and have a Thrustmaster TFRP Rudder $89.99 on the way after reading the reviews. Both are PC and Xbox One compatible. I recently bought Ace Combat 7 and Elite Dangerous for the Xbox One and also have several Microsoft Flight Simulator versions installed on my PC. I have yet to fireup the flight sims on tbe PC. I can say that there is a bit of a learning curve on thr Xbox One if you are used to a single stick or gamepad using the Hotas One. I decided to buy the pedals as I tend to apply too much rudder and rolling with both on the same stick resulting in frequent collisions or crashes. For the price, the Hotas One seems a fairly solid choice for regular or occasional use.
  7. You're welcome! Glad you've got it sorted!
  8. Very odd. I didn't have to create a game list to get it working. Can you attach your gameex.ini and log.txt after making the changes? Thanks.
  9. Can you please attach your pinballx.ini and log.txt file after replicating the slow start? Thanks.
  10. Seems to be working fine for both web and mobile loading now. If still an issue, clearing your browser cache may be in order.

    Taskbar on BG

    Have you tried Hiding the taskbar in Windows? There should also be a Display setting in Windows allowing you to extend the taskbar to the other diplays that you can disable
  12. It's a bit of a learning curve and it is different than what most are used to, but those whom have braved the setup seem to love it. I haven't taken the leap yet, but likely will when time permits.
  13. This may be of help...
  14. I am not able to replicate the issue. You may want to try disabling all power management to see a positve impact. If I was encountering this, I would check the Event Viewer to see if anything stands out for the date and time it occurs. Also l would check my BIOS to see if there are any settings that are related to the USB ports suspending power to the hubs.
  15. Please attach a copy of your updated pinballx.ini for review.
  16. You may want to review the following thread and a few referenced within to try to get your monitor order and X-Y offsets straightened out.
  17. Please attach your pinballx.ini as well. Thanks!
  18. Still the same issue with the joystick not responding?
  19. Did you also check the USB roothub properties in Device Manager?
  20. The steps are in the url I provided. https://www.windowscentral.com/how-prevent-windows-10-turning-usb-devices 1. Open Control Panel. 2. Click on Hardware and Sound. 3. Click on Power Options. 4. Under "Preferred plan," click the Change plan settings link for the plan you're currently using. (If you change the settings on the power plan that isn't active, this won't work.) 5. Click the Change advanced power settings link. 6. Expand USB settings. 7. Expand USB selective suspend setting. 8. Select Disabled from the drop-down menu. 9. Click Apply. 10. Click OK.
  21. I have seen this happen with Windows 10 updates. To fix what I encountered, I had to go into Windows Device Manager and open the properties for each of the USB roothubs and disable "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power " Also, check your Power Settings and disable USB Selective Suspend. https://www.windowscentral.com/how-prevent-windows-10-turning-usb-devices?amp

    Instruction cards

    I moved your message to the correct forum - please be aware of your surroundings! Likely there are not any Pinball FX3 instruction cards made except for the FX2 tables that were carried forward when FX3 was originally introduced.
  23. Your RAM seems to be a little light. 4GB for running VPX is fine, same requirements for Pinball FX3. But those requirements are suggested for running just the games, not the games and a frontend. 4GB is OK for Windows 10 x64, but does best with 8GB or higher in my experience. Can you try to obtain and attach a log.txt file when the error occurs?
  24. This looks similar to but is likely older than the current Mayflash F101 Arcade Stick - http://www.mayflash.com/Products/PLAYSTATION/F101.html The F101 "Supports the XINPUT and DINPUT when being used on PC" accoring to the site. It is possible that your model does not support directinput, but not knowing what model # makes this just an assumption.
