    -different options to fit your setup(default setup is for 3 Screen user with Lcd DMD and Topper)

    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)

    - OST Music (at the moment you have to set volume from the Table to 0, the matching altsoundfile(that you can hear the callouts) is in work and will be uploaded later. If you dont want to use the OST Sound set screen4 in PupPackeditor to off)

    -different Videos for all modes on every Level matching the Gameplay

    -different toppervideos

    -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 130 PuPCapture DMD images being monitored

    -over 230 trigger events to get all work

    -using the new PuPshapes feature

    REQUIREMENTS:

    Visual Pinball X 10.6 or higher

    PinMAME 3.2 beta or higher installed:

    [virtualdmd]

    enabled = false

    In the PinMAME settings for twister (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.

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

    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 twister 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 Twister TABLE:

    Make sure you have no media displayed on your Backglass and Topper when launching the table from a front-end.

    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)

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

    INSTALLATION:

    Ensure there are no files in your "PUPVideos" "twst_405" folder (if that folder already exists).

    Copy the PuP-Pack "twst_405" folder from the archive into your PUPVideos folder.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):

    [pinup]

    enabled=true

    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

    [virtualdmd]

    enabled = false

    In the PinMAME settings for twister (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 twister 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 Twister TABLE:

    Make sure you have no media displayed on your Backglass and Topper when launching the table from a front-end.

    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)

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

    INSTALLATION:

    Ensure there are no files in your "PUPVideos" "twst_405" folder (if that folder already exists).

    Copy the PuP-Pack "twst_405" folder from the archive into your PUPVideos folder.

    PROBLEMS:

    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 1.4.4 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. Or disable Topper in PuPPackeditor.

    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

    For other issues with getting a PuP-Pack to work, refer to the wiki:

    As example how it works correct: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAmHWpE_ayU

      Thanks for the Pup Pack. Its working great.

      I am using the 2 screen no_realdmd-no_topper. I am getting a gap on the bottom of the backglass underlay (showing the desktop). Almost like a dmd is suppose to be there. I have three screens with no topper.  I was just wondering if their was some sort of fix for it.  Thanks in advance.

      if you use three screens with no topper choose Pupconfig 2 Screen_realdmd_without topper (thats similar to your setup if you use a seperate lcd screen instaead a real dmd for your dmd screen)

      pup works great. I have a 2 screen setup with a real DMD. Only problem is on occasion, theres a blue screen in the sequence of videos, almost like one is missing. I don’t use popper but obviously player. What would cause this? Im using the right config for the pup. thanks for the excellent job by the way….cow

      I am getting a blue screen pretty often on the main back glass. I have a 3 screen set up. It seems like I’m not the first one to experience this. Can you look into it please? Thanks.

      Hi, PupPack looks great! I have a cabinet with 3 screens, playfield, backglass and DMD. I just have 1 problem on the Backglass. The Puppack videos pops to the back (covered by the bg) When videos are set to ‘ForceBack’ with all configs. Also the Twister BG Overlay is set to Forceback by default. In this manner the Videos are popping behind the BG Overlay and cannot be seen.

      Is there anyway to change the z- axis of the Videos with Puppack editor so it ends up showing from behind the BG Overlay – or set the frame to to have the video pop behind the Twister back ground overlay and still show through the overlay bg?

      I tried to Force the video to the front and it pops in front of the BG Overlay and Force Pop too – and it works but it doesn’t look good because it Pops in front of the cool twister BG picture frame.

      If I can change it to pop behind the Twister bg overlay and still show the middle portion of the video from behind the Twister bg Overlay that would be awesome without having to resize the video in Puppack editor and jerry rig it to fit and show, Also I do not have any B2S files interfering on the backglass where this is all happening.

      Thanks so much for the hard work!

      I don’t know if I understood that correctly. The b2s backglass has to be deleted for this puppack, otherwise it will interfere. The puppack is made in such a way that no changes have to be made in the puppack editor for the individual screens. The only thing that has to be set correctly is your basic setting in Pinupplayerconfigdisplays.bat there screen2 Backglass must be set to show always on and if you use a topper then screen 0 set also to  show always on. Then everything has to work correct. And be sure you are on Pinup 1.4.4
