Backglasses not showing since update vpx10.6

Recommended Posts

I updated to the official vpx 10.6 today, now in pinballx. When i load a table i cannot see the backglass anymore. They do however still load cause if i press alt tab i can see it,loading and pressing it a few times. The backglass stays on, was working all wel before the update, did i forget something?

I bet you ran the all in one installer, and that also updated B2SServer which is now sent to the back by default.

Open B2STableSettings.xml in your visual pinball\tables folder and add this line in the top section (make a backup copy first, just in case)

<FormToFront>1</FormToFront>

Is this a bug with PinballX? Should I perhaps hide the PBX backglass form on success vp table launch? or perhaps send it to the back?

Not a bug in pbx, but a feature in the new b2sserver.

This is to put pinupplayer to front (so b2s is not on top anymore, but will hide behind pinup player)

Because pbx has a black screen (to hide icons) it will show the b2sserver behind that screen.

Maybe an option is to check if pinupplayer is runnong, if not, put the b2sserver exe to front? Not sure if that is possible for you ?

I'm using the new b2sserver for a while now and uses Scutters solution.

hmm. I cant duplicate the problem. Is it only an issue when PinUp is running?

What are the steps to reproduce the issue?

I did just install the latest 10.6 installer.

I had it months ago when installing the b2sserver component. Without pinupplayer my b2sserver backglass was by default behind the pbx window after launching a vpx table. When right click on the backglass, there is an option too (per table) bring to front (if I still remember it, notat a pc now)

Thats a check if you have the new version.

hmm. Are you sure it isn't some kind of special download for Pinup? I just cant seem to duplicate the problem.

If you are still able to reproduce the issue, would you mind testing for me please? If this is a mainstream issue now I would like to address it.

Thanks.

Tom.

Odd. I'm 98% sure :P(

Not sure if @pcx1is using pinupplayer. If set it up for less than 5 tables that really needs a pinuppack. I noticed that b2sserver is starting slower when having pinupplayer.

Strange that you cant reproduce it

Edit: if there is a wokarround to get all working, you still want to adress it for pbx issue Tom ?

Create job @Tom Speirs ! Back glasses are working like a charm ! Even the pinup back glasses works fine now!
And a big hurray for the FFmpeg command you used for Nvidia  captures. From average of 12 minutes to convert it now takes 30 seconds !
