    Getting started

    A lot is dependant on the system you are trying to run it on for example is it a single desktop pc or a cab with 2 or 3 screens ?

    [RESOLVED] videos resolved but created new problem

    i hear you on that, a lot of tables r being converted to VPX so slowing its taking over but with over 500 tables in my setup might take a while lol.

    [RESOLVED] videos resolved but created new problem

    i use the alternate exe command in the XML to run diffrent version on VP , but it sorted now some how the XML got screwed up just need to check each table has the correct version in the alternate exe, by default it vp995 as most tables are VPT but VPX is closing in.
  7. After a bit of help finally got the DMD / PF / BG videos showing in PBX ( was LAV settings ) but now ive a new problem some tables dont load, DMD doesn't show, loading some times freezes and some table are over sized on screen? All these cant be down to LAV settings? ive enclosed my pinball ini and log files for any help. on the enclosed log abracadara was over sized could only see the flippers and the next airport is where it froze trying to load. I tried resetting the LAV setting back to what it was before and the problem is still there so summit has happened and be damned if i know what. EDIT : ok so dont ask me how or why but somehow my XML database got screwed up and had altered and added alternateexe>VPinballX.exe</alternateexe> to the XML so it was trying to load FPT tables via VPX ! ive no idea how this happened, but ive sorted it now. log.txt PinballX.ini

    Im sorry i dont follow you, how do you create playfield and back glass videos from the game manager?

    map keys to gamepad

    or use this ?? JoyToKey (or Joy2Key) enables PC game controllers to emulate the keyboard and mouse input, so that windows applications and web games can be controlled with your favorite joysticks! Whenever joystick buttons and sticks are pressed, JoyToKey converts them into keyboard strokes and/or mouse movements so that the target application will work as if you are using a real keyboard and a mouse. Joystick to Keyboard JoyToKey is a shareware, but you can download the latest version for free. Try it on your PC to play games with your joysticks and/or use it for general applications to improve efficiency by registering frequently used key input as a joystick shortcut. If you find JoyToKey useful, you can purchase a license key at any time from JoyToKey application menu. Information

    update : ive just tried the PBX recorder and although it does record the files ok my system still revuses to play correctly so until this issue is fixed im stuck with having half static half animated screens, how annoying.
