    Visual Pinball & Future Pinball setup at the bottom

    2 and 3 Screen set-up and more
    VP 10.6 - 10-4-2020_setting 4K-TV <– For Video settings & For VPM Default using Freezy –>  VPM Default

    Playfield monitor should be on the left with Additional Monitors to the Right and best to have them align with the top of the Playfield monitor- Example Below
    Everything works more correct when all screens are set at 100% scaling in windows
    Try this order – Playfield on the Left (Must be primary screen in Windows), To The RightBackGlass, Dmd then Topper
    Normal Orientation for Monitor Set up in Windows – Align the top of the Monitors
    DisplaysNot necessarily in the order of 1 2 3 – The monitor numbers in windows don’t mean anything when it comes to VP set up

    For setups using a real DMD just put the number 1 in the line Marked with a Red number and (leave the 3 lines above it at 0)
    ——————————————————————————————————————————————-
    If the score is part of the back glass Hit F1 unchecked both DMD’s For games like Tom & Jerry
    In your B2S_SetUp.exe, B2S_ScreenResEditor or ScreenRes.txt if you put any number in the line ( Marked with a Red number ) it should automatically get rid of the grill and some back glasses come with an image for the DMD area ( You have to have the correct directb2s file that is built to support it – Try a different version of the Back glass if needed ) if you fill the 4 lines in Green it will locate the image for you, Games like (Back to the Future) or you may have to right-click the back glass and have more options when the game is running..

    The type of DMD that comes with games like (Attack from Mars) has nothing to do with the B2S set up file…(ScreenRes.txt) is in Visual Pinball\Tables folder
    Those Settings are kept in the windows registry — see More info Below
    NOTE: 3 Screen Setup Means you Have a 3rd LCD Screen as a DMD
    Games that come with the extra image like Diner, Funhouse & Back to the Future will not work with a real DMD

    About to run 3 monitors but 4 connectors plugged in to my video card. Playfield, backglass, virtual DMD for streaming a DMD because I can’t stream a PIN2DMD, and the final one to watch my twitch chat while I stream, should be fun to setup.

    You can stream a pin2dmd via freezy.

    You’ve all seen the config where freezy has a url to an external address ? That is a server – so, in order do do that – he is streaming it. What is required on the server end I don’t know. What I’ve done though was to have a tournament with beers here at home. Then opened the port to freezy’ – ( the other option – don’t remember wording right now ), then fired up vlc on a laptop I had in the living room where most beers where consumed while the guys that where up – was in my hallway playing. A lot of fun I should add.

    Looked it up : browserstream]

    How ? I just plugged another cable into my backglass monitor and windows 10 saw that as another monitor plugged into my PC, just moved the virtual DMD onto that, set it all up in OBS and it works great.

    I stream my league play on Twitch. Because I have a PIN2DMD and it can’t output to anything (that I am aware of) no-one could see the DMD on twitch. So I put another lead into my backglass monitor and that gave me another monitor in windows 10, added that to my OBS output and away we go, everyone can see the DMD now.

    nah, that didn’t work really well at all. See my replies to my other post on how to do it, easy as to do once I discovered the solution on an non pinball site.

    About to install my 3rd monitor to my existing set up of 2 monitors and 1 pindmdv3. 3rd will obviously be topper. Perhaps any instructions for this type of setup in terms of Topper integration? Thanks all as always!

    Make sure you located the 3rd LCD to the Far right of the Playfield in windows, Then have the front end use it as a topper

    Got it up and running and calibrated the resolution in Windows. Odd thing though is it’s correct and centered until I play one table, close into pinup then it reverts to off center and cut off. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Do you run pinup with Administrator rights?

    Not doing so it may have the write to disk blocked if its installed on the main PC drive C:

    Everything works more correct when all screens are set at 100% scaling in windows
    Or try this
    DPI Scaling

    Hi,

    SUCESSFULL! After a few experiments, I’ve achieved 3 screens working like they must be. B-)

    In my case, the key was the B2S SERVER configuration, “B2S_SetUp.exe”, or in last term, “ScreenRes.txt”.

    Many people with three screeens use settings pointed to one screen only: “DISPLAY 1” and all coordenates are refered to this one. Because, in theory, this settings are to prevent Windows to assign automaticaly wrong display number to the screeens. I used this settings and they were working fine in my system with the 3 screens with any other B2S. But they didn’t work with B2S made for DMD frames (like “Tom & Jerry” and the other examples mentioned above).

    KrakenByte Kraken B2S_SetUp DISPLAY 1

    How it is working in my system (Windows 10, 20H2, 19042.630)? The only difference with the essential info of the initial post made by Outhere was that I had to go to a more classical aproach and set B2S to use the backglass in the second monitor: “DISPLAY 2” (and, of course, set the right coordenates refered to it).

    KrakenByte Kraken B2S_SetUp DISPLAY 2

    Now it is working like a charm and it’s amazing! :yahoo:

    Thanks again to everybody involved to bring to us this awesome features to pinball emulation. :good:

    Cheers and remember: Release the Kraken! 🐙
