    How I setup my PinUpPopper System to emulate the look of PinballX in Portrait mode.

    First of all, I want to thank NailBuster for programming the PinUpPopper System and Terry Red for his testing and videos explaining how to setup and configure it.

    It’s very simple to configure PinUpPopper to run in Portrait mode. Just follow these steps:

    1) You need to rotate all of the videos that appear on your main playfiled monitor. You will find them in the PopMedia folder. You need to rotate the Loading and Playfield screens in each Emulator folder and the Default folder. To determine which method of rotation to use, run each file and take note of the direction the video has to be roatated. On my system, I needed to rotate them 90 degrees clockwise. You need to use NailBuster’s rotate.bat file and ffmpeg.exe. You can find this in the PinUp file download section on the VPinball site.

    I needed to change the transpose number to 2. You only need to do one Load and one Playfield video, and then copy/overwrite the rotated video file to all your Emulator and Default folders.

    2) Look for the default Toolbar in the Default/System folder. You also need to rotate this image file. I used PhotoShop and rotated the Image file 90 degrees clockwise. I then copied that back into the folder overwriting the old Toolbar image.

    3) Open the PinUp Menu Editor and under GlobalConfig, choose Game/Wheel Toolbar. You can set whatever size you would like your Wheels icons. I left the Thumb Rotate to 0 and under Wheel Bar layout, I ticked Horizontal. All other settings I left at default.

    4) Now we need to position the Wheel Toolbar near the bottom of the screen, just like it is in PinballX. Open the Pinball Display Configuration utility. We want to move the Game Select bar down the screen. I set mine at width: 1080, height: 300, XPos: 0, YPos at 1500. Choose your main display, set it to Show PopUp (Hide Disabled), Roation: none, do not tick scale video to screen size. You can press the Refresh Video/Aspect button to see where it will display on the screen. Move it to your own liking, then click Save Settings and close.

    That should do it! Very easy and runs great. If you have any questions, please let me know and I’ll try to answer them. If I left anything out, I will update the post to reflect any additional changes needed, but I think this should do it!

    These instructions work great. But I noticed one “bug”: in horizontal orientation you only see the selected wheel image, but not the next or previous ones on the left and on the right, no matter how many you configure to be shown.

    This is does not work for me. I am on 1.4.0. There is no “Game Select” on Pinup Theme Editor.. There is “wheel” instead of, and the five number in the column for postionning it, i don’t understand how it work  :-(

    How do you rotate the popper menu?

    If you are using portrait in windows, install Popper to the latest version…then install one of the T-ARC or T-BAR Portrait themes.

    Gahhh…I’m so close on this. I followed the instructions from TerryRed (thanks, TerryRed!), and I’ve gone through them a couple of times, but the background video thing on the playfield is landscape. When the videos display for the few tables I have that have them, they are landscape, too. Like I said, I’ve gone through TerryRed’s step-by-step instructions (and will again in a moment) but I can’t figure this out.</p>

    I’ve got the latest popper and stuff installed. Went with the arc theme, option 1, portrait, HD. Went through the instructions again, but haven’t uncovered anything new.

    EDIT: I pretty much got things working after hours of tooling around. One thing I had to do was convert all of the playfield videos to portrait, and I used the tools from the message above. When it loads, the background video is usually still landscape, although a couple of times it was portrait. I have no idea how to fix that. But, I’m able to use PinUp Popper, launch games, see the videos, backglass, etc. Progress!
