Star Trek the next Generation PuPPack. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE , here comes the STTNG PuPPack a beast of a table but now with nice Videoanimations matching the Gameplay. tested with rom sttng_I7 and the STTNG table by (Knorr)
This PuPPack requires Pinup Popper and Pinup Player installed and updated to 1.4 or higher.
System: Visual Pinball X (version 10.5+)
-different options to fit your setup(default setup is for 3 Screen user with Lcd DMD and Topper)
in the PupPack are PUPConfigfiles..zip you can overwrite the Existing files in your PUPackroot folder to use them .
PuPconfig_2 Screen_notopper_norealdmd (for 2 Screen user without real dmd and without topper.)
PuPconfig_2Screens_realdmd-withoutTopper (for real dmd user without topper)
PuPconfig_3Screens_MaxPack (thats default Setup Action on all Triggers inkluded Topper)
Extra( big thanks to Nailbuster for this nice feature) if you have performance Problems you can use Nailbusters resize ALL Media it will convert all mp4 to 2/3 size. so 1920x1080 goes to 1280x720 for example this will relieve your system if needed
- OST Music (i used the Altsound Methode to mute the rom. Music is playing from PupPack.)
-different Videos for all modes on every Level matching the Gameplay
-different Overlays for all Multiballs
-works with all cabinet configurations (DMD can be positioned in the bottom text area if required there fore use the PuPconfig_2Screens_withoutRealDMD-withoutTopper file.

-over 430 trigger events to get all work
-included Animations for all Secret-Modes (Videomode playpoker with Rijker,Videomode Breakout, secret hurryup mode, Secret mission)
-works also with the color rom for sttng
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 STTNG (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 STTNG 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" "sttng_I7" folder (if that folder already exists).
Copy the PuP-Pack "sttng_l7" folder from the archive into your PUPVideos folder.
This Pack comes with OST-Music so you have to use my altsound folder. Copy the content fom altsound.zip into your Vpinmame altsound folder. Overwrite or Delete your existing file or make a backup from your old altsound file. Press during Gameplay F1 And change Altsound mode to :1 . Restart the table, thats it. Enjoy highquality sound.
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 use another PuPconfig file that fits your System.
If you don´t want to use OST Music go to PuPPackeditor and disable screen 4 and use your existing altsoundfile or normal rom music
If the sounds to loud you can go to Puppackeditor screens Section and set the volume for screen 4 in percent (default is 80%)
For other issues with getting a PuP-Pack to work, refer to the wiki:
Reminder there is a thanks Button after the first Post in Support Topic (that can be used to say thank you for the Upload :) Comments are also appreciated. Forgotten here is a video how it works if correct installed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYauiHkdpwc
-Changed the resolution of some videos to reduce the memory leak
-now two different Versions 1080P for High End Systems and 720p for Med-Low systems
-added 1080p version (mainVideos 1080p topper and smaller screens 720p)
-added 720p version (allvideos 720p)
With these versions, the memory leak is reduced and the risk of Pinupplayer crashing is minimized.
