    Thanks for this very nice EM table !

    If I understand, this table is set to FREEPLAY

    Is there a way to have CreditReel working ?

    And Matchtxt Textbox doesn’t work

    I’m a desktop user and I did a backdrop image, here is what it looks to

    Air Aces VPX

    @jfr1 : this is the more detailed info http://vpuniverse.com/forums/topic/2869-b2s-server-new-feature-aspect-ratio/ – just some small adjustments and a black background needed it seems. Oh. and if you’re using modified db2s server from Nailbuster. You might have troubles because he forces the backglass to the back. I believe it will become a black screen if you do it right. You have to add a force to back setting in the top of the db2ssettings.xml. DjRobX fixed this broken feature in his release, I compiled my own from his upstream :whistle:

    Sorry, I think I’m getting too old !

    I didn’t see that:

    “There is an options menu for replay/EB, ball shadow, coin/free play, 3/5 ball, etc. if you hold the left flipper during Game Over.”

    Anyway, thanks again for this table :good:

    Glad you found it. Was meaning to circle back to answer your question and got distracted by a squirrel or something.

    Aspect ratio vs volume.  As usual, wrapping my mind around the new option in the backglass server took days of tinkering.  Very interesting.  But for a bg like Aces, a four player, it has to be pretty big in real life and getting it dimensionally correct means it’s smallish.  I had gotten used to the stretched, distorted looks of many of my bg’s.  So may stick with those for when I’m playing.  But also slowly migrate older tables to a new folder for when real pinheads may be over. And for when I build my Borgdog cabinet!!

    Thanks again Thalamus…and Bord.  This hobby just keeps getting more and more interesting.

    Honestly. I find that to be much better. Now you only need a picture or video playing in that empty dmd.

    Ha!  More homework!  Thanks Outhere and Thalamus.  You guys really are like professors.

    I have a feeling I may get used to the more correct aspect ratio on a lot of single players in my collection.  When I have Spin a Card playing side by side the real thing the BG looks pretty wonky.  Thanks again guys!!  And Bord ….The Pinbot games are another throwback to my more carefree, hang-out at the mall days.  I remember the first time I played a Pinbot at an Alladin’s Castle and being amazed.  What a treat these tables are!!

    Man, great to hear you’re enjoying Pin Bot.

    I sure think the correct aspect ratio looks better in your photo. In the case of Air Aces I had a pretty low resolution image to work with so a smaller size is going to hide some of the detail deficiency, too. Thanks for sharing the photo.

    Enjoying Pinbot?

    I fell into this VP stuff just over a year ago.  And the creative community here is …crazy cool!

    I hadn’t played Pinbot in …decades.    …I may be up all night.
