[RESOLVED] pinball fx3 shuts down after few seconds

Recommended Posts

i'm having an issue with latest version of pinball x. vpx works flawlessly, but when i start pinball fx3 within the frontend, it launches, it loads the table, then suddenly shuts it down after few seconds and return to the main menù

outside the frontend fx3 works like it should

any idea why this happens?

thanks for help

Your version of Pinball FX 3 looks a bit "iffy" but everything in the config looks normal.

I have my Steam installed in c:\pinball and launched fx3 from the steam directory. If you launch it from steam.exe, will it works better ? (I skipp steam.exe too, saves me 3 seconds of loading, but I have an original copy)

Maybe this post helps you:

"Iffy" or not, It should work in Pinball x as It works outside Pinball X. I'm making test on cab before buying a game i can't use on It ;)

I don't understand why Pinball X exits the game without any reason, with an older version It worked....

On 3.47 were you using the 32-bit install of PinballX or 64-bit version?

Not sure about that mate,  I don't remember honestly. Do you think it has something to do with this?

I'm sure that the version i have right now Is 64 bit....

On 3.47 you where indeed using 32bit of pbx (just checked your logfile in the plugin post)

Not sure if this could cause issues. I'm using 64bit too

Euh ....  nothing that I can think off., besides the difference between 32 and 64bit 

But Fx3 is working fine on my 64bit version of pbx

A few versions ago PinballX installer favors 64-bit over 32-bit. Generally there should be no issues, but there may be some problems still with plugins, etc. that are not otherwise optimised for running via a 64-bit frontend.

Would be worth a shot to install the latest build over the top of your current and select the 32-bit install. Attach new copies of your pinballx.ini and log.txt files in reply with your results. It may be a quick fix for Tom depending on the results or if more testing is required.

Ok, then i Will try later and post results over here.

But i Will notice any difference from 64 to 32 bit? There should be any disadvantage?

Also, do me a favour and download the older version and confirm its working. If that's the case then only I can resolve this.

ok, no good news, for me. i've tried everything. pbx 1.47 32bit, and 64 bit.

then back to  1.74 both 32bit and 64 bit. almost the same result. the only difference is that with the older version as you can see it "stays" in the game a little bit more. then it suddenly get back to pbx menu

now i'm stuck, but i'm 100% sure it worked before upgrading (in fact statistics says tha i've spend a lot of time in fx3)

after all those tries, i played and hour straight on the same fx3 table, outside pbx ;(

here some files if anyone is able to help me out

thanks for your time

I refer to my first reply to this topic basically. and we will see if anyone else reports anything.

Only other thing would be is if fx 3 is set to run as admin and pbx is not.

Similar issue was fixed back in v3.31 (https://www.gameex.info/forums/topic/22092-fx3-tables-crashing-to-pbx-menu-after-launch/)

I'd try going back further to V3.31 to confirm if issue is still present there. If it isn't that'll give Tom something to go on, if it is try the renaming pinball fx3.exe to pinballfx3.exe if you haven't already.
