is it an exe used as a lauch before executable in pinballx? you mind to share that?

OR @Jeff: It would be awesome if the upcoming TPA launcher would integrate that to work with irotate or display.exe

I don't mind sharing it, but when time299 releases nukelauncher, it will be null, so it's only a temporary use

Time299, how you doin buddy??? Is there anything we can help with? Art collection? Testing? Anything?

Edit:

Here is my script, its more of a tpa wrapper, you need to run the script directly, not before or after tpa...

Thanks!

EDIT: had a problem cause I dont exit by esc key, so I just made the script to wait for tpa to exit by itself, and then rotate back.

...
Process, wait, PinballArcade.exe
WinWait, ahk_class Pinball Arcade
WinWaitClose, ahk_class Pinball Arcade
Send, {ALTDOWN}{CTRLDOWN}{Up}{ALTUP}{CTRLUP} ;Set your own path

ExitApp

Thanks again, now I did my first line of AHK ;-)

Thank you for these projects. I finally got around to getting FX2 working and now about to try the media pack out.

I have just Paypal donated to your support.

FYI The link for the PA launcher from after donating gives an error:

Thanks for the info.

That's because I have not finished making the media pack or released the Pinball Arcade Launcher, but I am about too. I am adding the links and pages to the web site to prepare for the release.

Cool. Do you plan to use an external app like irotate? This is very convenient and solution is posted a few lines above :)

Ah? Didn't know that was windows built in. I know that it existed with some driver back then, but maybe not for AMD or was it Nvidia? Which windows version supports this?

It may not be an OS thing, but it's common to many video drivers versions from Intel, Nvidia, and ATI.

I wanted it to be included, so that I'm not forcing people to use another 3rd party app if they already have it.

I remember reading that thread a year ago (the cat of the wife jumping on the keyboard is very memorable). Came to the conclusion that nvidia skipped the hotkey funtion after xp. so if you have nvidia and win7 or newer you have to use irotate or display.exe or you ahk everything, which maybe is slower.

if I am wrong I am happy to find out a better solution, but irotate is so super convenient...

I have it always running to use the script posted above, but you can also call it with a parameter and exit afterwards.
