    Is there a way to make a power switch on / off for doflinx Night Mode?

    Well dof generates no dof configs(configs with noisy feedback toys disabled) just make a batch file to rename the configs. Or if you want an ahk that runs when you press the button

    We need a POP front end signature!!! Or no?

    DOFLinx Nightmode will turn on and off your solenoids only as far as I know. When Nightmode is on, then any tables I have modded for FP will then turn on the mechanical noises (in game) again so you can hear them.

    You can activate DOFLinx Nightmode using the DOFLinxMSG.exe to send a message to DOFLinx (to turn ON / OFF Nightmode) via AHK or Batch file. The commands to control nightmode are in the DOFLinx PDF guide I believe.

    Then you can use another program like Pinnacle Game Profiler, or Xpadder to map a button on your cab to run your “Nightmode” Bat or AHK ON and OFF files.

    This is how I used to do it. I lost my AHK scripts that did this way back when my SSD died and I havent needed Nightmode since then… but I should get around to getting that to work again.

    Thanks TerryRed. I will try it.

    Your videos inspired me to ride my pinball. I really am your fan.

    As my machine stays indoors, I’m looking for a practical way to turn off the mechanisms when people are sleeping and me playing.

    Thank you very much.

    It works really well…just read the DOFLinx guide…and try a couple of BAT files to get it to work. The fact that it will turn on / off the mechanical sounds in the games is a bonus too (only on my DOFLinx mods I believe).

    I wired a switch that turns off the buss from my 24V power supply to the 24V toys, that kills the knocker and the contactors.
