since my diy VPin is set and ready to go I installed the fantastic PinUp as my front end of choice. But now I need to ask for a little help.
My cab is equiped with a PinControl 2 board and to this I connected most of my arcade and flipper buttons. Using Win 10 Pro, this works well with my 3 screen setup and VPX 10.5.
But when I enter the PinUp front end sometimes Windows just gives me a “beep” sound when a key is pressed (e.g. “right shift” and/or “left shift” to scroll my list) and nothing more. After some keystrokes I can get to scroll trough the menu normally but the “beep” problem may occur again randomly.
Since this only happens when PinUp is involved I hope that this is something you guys have a solution for.
Any help is highly appreciated!

pressing shift 5 times activates stickykeys, you have to turn it off in windows

Could it be that STICKY KEYS is on ?
Beeps when you press shift key 5 times
disable under ease of access control panel
Or is it possible you have a usb keyboard/device that is turning itself off ?
Check in your power options (advanced options) that USB selective suspend is disabled
Hope that sorts it for you !
Edit: Laughs NFozzy already had you sorted !

Hi and thanks for your quick replies!
Sticky keys was and still is disabled.
The USB power saving setting is now deactivated, I’ll try that. But will Windows power down a device that is used at the same time (PinControl in this case)?

Ok, just a quick update.
There seems to be an issue with the “Left Shift” and “Right Shift” keys!
I assigned them like the default configuration in VPX 10.5. Which is a must since the PinControl board inevitably expects these keys to be flipper left and right
I figured out that when assigning the “Game Next” and “Game Prior” buttons in PinUp to let’s say “Left CTRL” and “Right CTRL” – that are assigned to left and right Magnasave in VPX -, no more beeps till now!
The only “trouble” this causes is that I need to chose the game in the front end with my Magnasave buttons instead of the Flipper buttons.
But that is ok with me as long it causes no beeps .

my guess, is that you had two functions using the same keys… which is a feature but if used wrong can cause strange issues like this.
like assigning “game next” and “page next” to same left-shift. so dbl-check that the left-shift wasn’t also assigned to another function…but again, im guessing.
either way, you have a working solution now…enjoy!
