And I thought for years it was easy: Download the VPX and backglass, download the rom and run the table, but still need to check all
Thanks for the feedback.
I’m getting closer now to what I try to accomplish.
I made a new directory and copy all the roms I collected in the last years .
I run RC on it and I fixed all the “yellow” that has too many files, or files where it is an wrong naming case (don’t think that caused an issue, but fixed them)
The sound files that are missing are still yellow, but thought I could ignore those
So under ‘originals I have now 58 roms left that in red that are missing .bin and .snd files (not the sound files itself). I didn’t checked my my patched sammy files yet (need to figure out, what roms those where before copying all to my original roms location)
I’m in progress now to fix all the missing files in the ‘originals’ from the datafile.
Will take some time, but I get there.
Thanks again guys and sorry for these noob questions I asked.

So, best way is just like mame has ? Just to have all the roms in the roms folder, so that split roms are working correctly ?

And I’ve said countless times. Use VPU to download your roms from and when you do. Be aware that that site uses split sets, so you want the “mother” rom as well.
I use VPU mostly to download the roms, but think because of I download only the split rom , because I was not aware that that they where incomplete.
After a couple of years, still learning.

I also have multiple copies of the rom folders already.
I will give it a try and try to fix all roms.
For me the missing files I only want to fix. That there are multiple files, I don’t care, but it is maybe better to fix them as well.
Never realized this when starting with visual pinball !

You already mention that your budget is low, but I should also go for a 3070 (or when the 3060 will be released)
Why ? I think with the next release of virtual pinball (vpe), you need a better video card to display all. And I hope that ray tracing will be added too.
But just my opinion.
A complete cabinet could cost a fortune, but you can use it for many, many years. And even your (grand)kids will love it.

Try a pinevent table and pause or exit doflinx. That did the trick for me

All I am saying is that this is a skill that is easily learned and allows people to setup tables exactly how they want it. Just like adding scrips and POVs to modify things, it allows people to customize.
It’s indeed a skill. I understand a bit the vbs part of the tables. I can create my own pov file when a table is not set to fullscreen (cabinet) , but to get a good pov is not something for me. So I really like the pov files someone else creates.
Everybody has his own skills, and I can’t do anything with visualization.
So thanks again for this post and for @terryred : thanks for all the work you do for this community!

Great POV settings! Thank you! This is the style I like the most, i.e. settings that fit the screen well (without artificial narrowing upwards).
I just have a problem with Big Bang Bar, after applying this setting I have an error as below.
Thanks and I look forward to the other tables!
I still dream about an option in Game Manager where we could import POV settings of different authors just as we import media files. Wouldn’t that be beautiful? ;)
Only in gamemanager, or can it be made available in Database Manager ?
Thanks for thse pov files, I will check them in the weekend , but appreciate the work you did

Looks really awesome !
Just a question, should the backglass also flash light in attract mode ?
I have an old version of the backglass, and that is flashing, and this backglass on starts flashing when a game is started

For wiring take the time. Its not that difficult, if you made a scheme of the wiring what you want to accomplish.
First determ what you want to wire and use different colors of wires. Start for example with buttons and finish that.
Than do the next. The lights in the buttons for example.
After that do your toys. That was my approach, and I didn’t get in a spaghetti wire mess.
I hope you have a lot of wires length ordered !

You dont need that ammount of space or tools !
The backbox I build on my attic, just 9m2 in totall with an extra bed in it, arcade cabinet and a corner to have my workplace.
For the cabinet, only used a handsaw and a drill and a small electric saw for the coindoor.
Mostly build outside in the garden. I hade it done in 2 weeks. Moved it to my attic and did the rest over there.
On gamex site, I have my build progress with some pictures
As I said. Im not handy with wood, but the electronic part was easy

You should do what Tom said.
I’m not very handy with wood, I have a small house and build the cabinet on my attic. I really love the result.
I wired all myself, all is working, including coin door with their switches.
Just the fun that you build it yourself and can show what you accomplished.
Btw, why want to swap buttons, if you bought a complete cabinet ?
