Hello, I´m not sure what´s the best way (or maybe just my preferred settings) to include playfield previews in Pinballx . Therefore I would like to know how you handle your playfield previews. 1. What kind of media do you prefer (Images / Videos)? ...and why? (e.g. performance, optics, storage...) 2. If you use Videos: 2.1 Do you use Videos with integrated Sound? 2.2 Do you use Videos without Sound? 3. Do you integrate Sound to your "Images" / "Videos without sounds" via separated Audio files? I´m asking, because normally I would prefer to use Videos with included Audio. But there are table where such files are not available. So I went for the solution to add just for those Videos separated Audio files. But I´ve encountered that if PinballX is starting at a table where I did so, the Opening Audio file of PinballX will be delayed until the separated Audio file of that specific table has ended or until I switch to another table with integrated Audio. (I think if the Video uses integrated Audio the different Audio files may be overlayed while different separated Audio files can´t). But on the other side I´ve encountered another effect: While for Videos with integrated Sound the Sound stops as soon as I start one of those tables... Those tables with separated Sound files play their Sound even during the Loading Screen of PinballX. So currently I´m not really sure what is my preferred solution (and I don´t like mixing solutions anyway)... How do you do your setup regarding the preview Videos? Many thanks in advance for your suggestions! Kind regards, Jannek
So I switched to PinballX a few months ago and I swear future pinball was working in earlier versions otherwise i probably wouldn't have switched. I must have changed a setting somewhere. Currently I have no way around making my play field (HDMI) monitor 2 and backglass (DVI) monitor 1. When I run FP alone, the tables load right up and no problems. When I load through PinballX the play field shows the loading screen then when it is all loaded up goes black. I can still hear the table running, the backglass shows up. I can use the buttons. Not sure what to do about this. I changed the settings for display in the PinballX settings and playfield goes to the backglass but is usable, main screen stays black.
