Visual Pinball X 10.5 All in One or higher installed (this is to include newest B2S Server):
PinMAME 3.2 beta or higher installed:
PINUP SYSTEM (1.4 or higher):
PinUP System 1.4 FULLY installed and PinUP Player setup. (The Pinup Popper front-end is not required for PuP-Packs, for those who use another front-end)
DMDExt 1.71 (32 bit/x86 files only!) or higher installed in your VPinMAME folder and configured to enable PUPCapture!
This PuP-Pack relies on monitoring the freezy dmdext DMD for specific images to trigger videos and music (PuPCapture). This needs both the freezy 1.71+ "dmddevice.dll" file, and the Pinup Player "dmddevicePUP.dll" file in your VPinMAME folder.
Ensure PuPCapture is enabled in the dmddevice.ini file (in your VPinMAME folder):
Note: If you are using a real DMD, then ensure that the freezy virtual DMD is disabled in the dmddevice.ini file:
; a DMD that renders with nice dots on a computer monitor
enabled = false
In the PinMAME settings for Ironman (press F1 during gameplay):
- you must have "Use External DMD (DLL)" enabled. This will enable the freezy dmdext dmddevice.dll to be used, which is needed for PuPCapture.
Your DMD must be in English for all PuPCapture video triggers to work correctly!
PinUPPlayerB2SDriver and B2S SERVER SETTINGS:
Be sure that your PuPB2s Driver and B2S server settings are setup and working correctly so you don't get any errors.
NO DIRECTB2S BACKGLASS RUNNING:
You MUST NOT have a directb2s running at all, or it will obscure the PuP Backglass!!!
Simply make sure you have a copy of your favorite Ironman table (intended only for use with this PuP-Pack), and make sure it is named VERY differently to your directb2s file, so when you launch that copy of your table it won't launch the directb2s!
FRONT-END MEDIA DISABLED FOR Ironman TABLE:
Make sure you have no media displayed on your Backglass and Topper when launching the table from a front-end.
Pinball X: In Games Manager, make sure you have "Hide Topper" and "Hide Backglass" enabled for the table you are using.
Popper: In Games Manager, for the table you are using, enter -1 In the "Keep Displays ON" field (to not use Popper media on ALL Displays when launching the table)
Ensure there are no files in your "PUPVideos" "im_183ve" folder (if that folder already exists).
Copy the PuP-Pack "im_183ve" folder from the archive into your PUPVideos folder.
This Pack comes with OST-Music so you have to use my muted rom. Copy the im_183ve.zip into your Vpinmame roms folder. Overwrite or Delete your existing rom or make a backup from your old rom
If you have video stuttering or artifacts with PuP-Packs with VPX... you most likely don't have VSYNC properly setup in VPX. Set "FPS Limiter/VSYNC" to 1, and "Maximum Pre-Rendered Frames" to 1 in VPX Video Options. This can also be set per-table in the Table's "User Customization" options, so check that as well.
Having certain programs running in the background can also cause issues as they may interfere with VLC or prevent Overlays from displaying. Try closing out other programs / processes to see if that helps resolve any issues.
If the OST music "during gameplay" isn't working correctly then you probably didn't update correctly.
To make it CLEAR. You MUST be updated "properly" to Pinup System 1.4 for this Pack to work "correctly"! Some videos may not be triggering,
If you don´t want to use Topper go to PupPackeditor and disable screen 0
