    ===============================

    Requirements:

    Tron Legacy (Stern Ultimate) DOFLinx: MX PuP SSF 1.2 Future Pinball table.

    This is the only table that will work with this PuP-Pack!

    https://vpinball.com/?post_type=cmdm_page&p=93453

     

    PinUP System installed and updated to 1.3.4 or greater. 

    (Pinup Popper front end gets installed but is NOT required) PinUP Player needs to be setup for your system.

    https://vpinball.com/VPBdownloads/pinup-system-player-and-popper-front-end-install/

    PinUp System updates:

    http://www.nailbuster.com/wikipinup/doku.php?id=release_notes

     

    B2S Server 1.3.0.2 or higher installed (required for DOF).

    If you don't have VPX or B2s Server at all, I'd recommend installing the VPX All in One Installer to setup VPX, B2S Server, etc easily (even if you don't want VPX). Install to default locations. Just make sure when it asks if you are using a 2nd screen for Backglass, you say YES! That is needed to install and enable B2S Server, even if you are not a cabinet user. Then download and update to B2S Server 1.3.0.2 afterward.

    https://vpinball.com/VPBdownloads/vpx-installer-10-4-0/

    B2s Server 1.3.0.2:

    https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=12553

     

    DOF R3++(required for DOFLinx). Use mjr's easy to use Installer:

    http://mjrnet.org/pinscape/dll-updates.html

     

    DOFLinx 6.31 or higher (to trigger PinUp Player videos and SSF). Must be setup for your system:

    https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=12318

     Make sure you have copied the newest DOFLinx.vbs file into your Future Pinball - Scripts folder!

     

    Topper screen NOT Required:

    I have included 2 versions of the PuP-Pack. One for those with a Topper screen, and another for those with an Under screen.

    You DO NOT require one of those screens to use this PuP-Pack. You can simply disable the Topper screen of this PuP-Pack using the PuPack Editor.

    If you don't have a Topper or Under screen space in your cabinet, then it is REQUIRED to turn off the Topper of this PuP-Pack using the PuPack Editor!

    SSF Optional:

    If you don't want to use the PuP SSF sounds at all, you can simply turn off the SSF Screen (Screen 4) using the PuPack Editor.

    =======================

    Installation:

    Extract the PuP-Pack archive of your choice to a temporary folder.

    Ensure there are no files in your "PUPVideos - FP_TRONLEG_STERN_ULT" folder (if that folder already exists. We don't want any old or improper files in there getting mixed up).

    Copy the PuP-Pack (FP_TRONLEG_STERN_ULT) folder into your PUPVideos folder.

    =======================

    Desktop Users:

    Desktop users can use this table with the PuP-Pack as long as:

    -they have setup all the required software noted above

    -positioned the PuP Backglass and Topper screens in a good location

    -are using Future Pinball in either windowed mode

    -or have setup a Forced Borderless Windowed Mode (not supported natively by FP) using a program like "Windowed Borderless Gaming". This is required because Future Pinball's FULLSCREEN mode will stay on top and cover up the PuP Video Windows.

     

    How to force Future Pinball to use a Borderless Windowed Mode to allow use of PuP-Packs (Required for Desktop users ONLY!)

    Setup Future Pinball in a windowed mode. Then use the registry (regedit) to change your windowed mode's width and height to the exact resolution you want:

    Computer HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Future Pinball GamePlayer

    Do not use the FP Editor to change video settings after this, or your FP windowed resolution may get reset again. Now download and install Windowed Borderless Gaming. (Google it if you need to)

    http://westechsolutions.net/sites/WindowedBorderlessGaming/

    Configure that program to work with Future Pinball. Once setup, you simply let this program run in the background. When Future Pinball is detected and brought into focus, it will have its window forced into a Borderless Window, allowing the PuP Video Windows to display over top of the Future Pinball window.

    ====================

    How to Use with Desktop:

    Once you have everything installed and setup... DOFLinx should be running in the background first (as Admin)! Then load Future Pinball, then load your table and start right away as DOFLinx will try to connect with FP as soon as its detected. DOFLinx will timeout after a certain amount of time (configured in DOFLinx.ini) if the table isn't completely loaded, started, and the FP Link isn't established yet.

    After the table completely loads and starts, the table will look like it is isn't working because its not lit up. This is normal for this specific table. Wait at least a good 15 seconds at this point to be sure DOFLinx has made the connection to FP (Important for the PuP-Pack).

    Then when you press the START button, the table should come alive and then you should be seeing the PuP-Pack video windows for Backglass and Topper (if enabled) come on.

    Now you are ready to play!

    When you exit the game, exit FP completely so DOFLinx will close the Link to FP and also close the PuP-Pack.

     

    How to Use with a Cabinet:

    Once you have everything installed and setup... DOFLinx should always be running in the background (as Admin)! Launch the table using your front end (like Popper or PBX). DOFLinx will will detect FP, and try to establish a link with it.  DOFLinx will timeout after a certain amount of time (configured in DOFLinx.ini) if the table isn't completely loaded, started, and the FP Link isn't established yet.

    After the table completely loads and starts, the table will look like it is isn't working because its not lit up. This is normal for this specific table. Wait at least a good 15 seconds at this point to be sure DOFLinx has made the connection to FP.

    Then when you press the START button, the table should come alive and then you should be seeing the PuP-Pack video windows for Backglass and Topper (if enabled) come on.

    Now you are ready to play!

    When you exit the game back to your front end, DOFLinx with detect FP has closed and will close the Link to FP and also close the PuP-Pack.

    PLEASE READ REQUIREMENTS IN DESCRIPTION FIRST!

    =======================

    Installation:

    Extract the PuP-Pack archive of your choice to a temporary folder.

    Ensure there are no files in your "PUPVideos - FP_TRONLEG_STERN_ULT" folder (if that folder already exists. We don't want any old or improper files in there getting mixed up).

    Copy the PuP-Pack (FP_TRONLEG_STERN_ULT) folder into your PUPVideos folder.

    =======================

      How to force Future Pinball to use a Borderless Windowed Mode to allow use of PuP-Packs (Required for Desktop users ONLY!)

      Setup Future Pinball in a windowed mode. Then use the registry (regedit) to change your windowed mode's width and height to the exact resolution you want:

      Computer HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Future Pinball GamePlayer

      Do not use the FP Editor to change video settings after this, or your FP windowed resolution may get reset again. Now download and install Windowed Borderless Gaming. (Google it if you need to)

      ====================

      How to Use with Desktop:

      TerryRed, I have installed the Pup Pack and everything is working as expected with one exception.  I do not see anything in my DMD area.  I’m using a 3 screen setup with the 3rd screen split between my DMD and Topper.  Topper video and backglass are working.  However, DMD is blank/black.  My question is….does the DMD screen come from the pup-pack or FP?  Any ideas greatly appreciated!  Thanks.

      The DMD needs to come from FP. You would use FutureDMD to run FP’s DMD in a separate window that goes there….similar to PinMAME / freezy for VPX.

      Took me a little while to figure out the configuration but have it up and working now.  Thanks for your help!  What a great Pup Pack!

      Not seeing any of the Pup videos.  I have Pinup configured and working (got Stranger Things vpx working).  I dont have either a topper or underscreen.  Does it matter what version of the pack I am using?

      Does my version of pin2dmd firmware or software matter?  The DMD is displaying just fine (running FP 2.7).  Also grabbed the latest version of DOFLinx script.

      FP PuP-packs work differently. They are using DOFLinx trigger commands to trigger the pup videos. So you need to have DOFLinx installed and working as the instructions mention.

      Make sure you are fully updated with the newest DOFLinx, and make sure you have the newest DOFLinx.vbs copied to “FuturePinball\Scripts” folder.

       

      When the table loads….DO NOT push START right away to “turn on” the table….after it completely loads….wait for at least 15 seconds, then Press Start.

      When the table “powers on”, you should see the pup-pack starup at that point. If not,then you may not have doflinx working properly.

       

      Make sure you use BAM and run FP Loader as Admin, and also DOFLinx as Admin.

      Hey Terry-

      Got this going now  :good:   Seems to have been a couple things:

      1. Running both DOFLinx & FP as Admin
      2. I HAD to rename my version 2.7 (Future Pinball_27.exe) to “Future Pinball.exe”  This despite having the line in DOFLinx.ini:

      PROCESSES=Pinball FX3,Pinball FX2,Future Pinball,VPinballX,VPinball994,VPinball995,Future Pinball_27

      So a couple of followups here:

      1. Is this a limitation we can investigate with DOFLinx?  I really like having multiple versions of Future Pinball!
      2. Can you do a video dedicated to PuP videos?  I looked on your channel, but I did not see how to create triggers just for videos (unless it was buried on one of your tutorial videos somewhere).  I certainly see the code to call Pupplayer in Tron Ultimate

      and Finally- Thanks so much!!! This is a feature I have been wanting to see for 5+ years now!  As a result, I will have to rebuild my backbox to accomodate a much larger screen (possibly add another screen too)!

      There’s no need for multiple FP exe’s anymore. BAM lets you use whatever physics you want via an xml file (2.7, 2.6,etc) named the same as the table. You can use thi with any FP exe.

      However, the new BAM Dynamic physics  are totally different than any of the old BAM physics…and this is added directly to the table script and can be adjusted for almost anything. It’s a HUGE difference in how much better FP plays. A good example is the new Jaws Ultimate PRO. You only need the newest BAM…but the table would need to be updated with the script additions.

      As for tutorials, I have a DOFLinx tutorial series…and how to make PuP-Pack videos on my chanel. The only difference with FP is adding the PuP DOFLinx commands to the table script. Use this Tron table as an example.

      I’ll be making a new Jaws pup-pack for Jaws Ultimate PRO when I get time.
