mute during attract mode not working

Recommended Posts

I just updated to 3.95 and the mute during attract mode no longer works, everything else works great and faster than before. But I really like it being silent until I go touch a button. (well really the wife is the one who likes it the most, lol.) Is anyone else having this problem?

Please provide more detail, plus log file and PinballX.ini. I assume you are talking about table audio?

I use table audio not video audio, it used to mute after starting attract mode, then unmute once I pressed a button.

I may have made a little mistake but it is working in 3.96 for me. Please confirm, also in future please attach files rather than copy and paste and also post in the correct forum. I offer serveral products and services.

Thanks.

I installed, and rebooted and problem is still there. I checked the pinballx.ini and went into settings to double check and it's set to MuteAudio=True

No just installed 3.95 over my old install, which broke it. then I fresh installed it to new folder and moved media and databases over to new install. then updated it to the new 3.96. I've tried 3rd party apps that mute after a certain idle time but, the ones I've tried don't recognize joystick input. I'm lost what did you update. I think the last version I had was 2.9x something, has there been dependency changes or folder names or anything? I really would like to keep this updated version because of the video loading and table with gif loading, performance updates and such.

Perhaps you can try a previous version to rule anything else out?

You definitely tried 3.97?

On the PinballX download page, click the changelog drop down, select a different version and then there should be a download option for that version underneath.

I'll check if the mute still works for me later on with v3.97

I just installed PinballX 2.42,  and the mute during attract mode is working again.

I'll try seeing what the latest version that works for me is....

Mute audio in attract mode works for me in v3.97.

I'm also using table audio files. Strange.

well I'm finding out I have to wait 24 hours between each download of pinballx, which is fine I understand the pay wall, It will just take a while.

In the mean time I wrote an AutoHotkey script to mute all audio on 5 mins Idle, but the problem is ahk doesn't detect joystick input, but it does let you map joy buttons to keyboard. So in order for it to work I have all my buttons sending the letter k all the time just to properly detect idle.

or If anyone has better ahk know how, I think there is a way to use the getkeystate function, but I've failed to figure it out.

It would be great to get this working as a 3rd party app, because Pinballx is the only frontend I know of that uses the Mute during Attract mode feature. (Well I assume Gameex Does but honestly have never used it. I currently use Launchbox/Bigbox for my arcade setup.)

I have found three apps that mute during idle:

IdleMute -  Made using Autohotkey

Tur-Another Idle Volume Adjuster - Has lots of features

System Silencer - very simple just option to set idle time

All of these programs do not detect Pinscape input or Joystick input

Win 10, it might be a platform thing. Don't have win 7 to test on though,

unfortunately yes life is that hard right now, I currently live in mexico and the average weekly pay is 35 dollars. Trust me if I could afford anything right now I would gladly give support. Just as of now I can't. Once my CNC business gets off the ground I'll be sure to Donate.

Sorry if I came off sounding like a leech.

If I could I would.

I don't know how to prove it but, here are some pics I just took.

The CNC I almost have done, My wife on the roof doing laundry at night for some odd reason, and a pic of my street from my roof.

on 3.97 when I launch fx3 or tpa it plays the table audio when the table is brought up which at first sounded like it opened the program twice but I checked and only one instance. it would stop after playing through the table audio file once. And the video image/loading doesn't work for future pinball.

there are none of these problems on 2.42
