    I’ve noticied that the contactors of the slingshots are inverted. (when the ball hit the right slingshot, the left contactor enter in action).

    It’s not a probleme in the DOF because it do it only on this table.

    I’ve asked to arngrim ho to fix the script of the table, i thank him for the solution :

    Sub RightSlingShot_Slingshot
    PlaySound SoundFX(“Slingshot”,DOFContactors), 0, 1, 0.05, 0
    RSling.Visible = 0
    RSling1.Visible = 1
    sling1.TransZ = -30
    RStep = 0
    RightSlingShot.TimerEnabled = 1
    vpmTimer.pulsesw 37 ‘RightSlingShot
    End Sub

    Sub LeftSlingShot_Slingshot
    PlaySound SoundFX(“Slingshot”,DOFContactors),0,1,-0.05,0
    LSling.Visible = 0
    LSling1.Visible = 1
    sling2.TransZ = -30
    LStep = 0
    LeftSlingShot.TimerEnabled = 1
    vpmTimer.pulsesw 36 ‘LeftSlingShot
    End Sub

    Hey guys, Im in desperate need of assistance please. At this point, I have spent around 15 hours trying to get Addams Family to work. I feel like I have fully exhausted all my options so I am pleading for help here for the sake of my own sanity.
    anyway, my problem is this:

    I launch TAF, be it from the editor, or pinball X… the table loads, I hear the Rom “beep” and then it launches a second DMD window that is full screen on my playfield. At this point all sound from there on is duplicated, so every sound plays twice, the animation at the top right of the table has a ghosting effect as it rotates through its test, all bulbs have a ghost effect. It feels like my PC is being slowed to a halt.
    I have tried several versions of the table, including gold, with both “taf_l7” and “tafg_lx3” but the all behave the same.
    I use freezys dll for coloured dmd but for this table during debugging I have the coloured option set to off. I have the Vpinmame options set to use external dmd only.

    I have created an ini file for DmdDevice which points to the rom name.

    I have tried to delete my registry entries in HKEY CURRENT USER- Software -freeware but that does not seem to change anything.
    Its like something gets triggered by the script that I cannot find, this happens during the table boot up and always after the playfield and backglass are present.
    It feels like the table is being controlled by a hidden agenda and I cannot play one of my all time fave tables.

    I will say at this stage I have 60 tables fully configured and working correctly with coloured dmd although I do not claim to be an expert, I am open to any suggestions.

     

    Thank you for reading,

    Kind Regards

    Daz

    Is the second DMD the a duplicate  External DMD or the Pinmame (Internal) one?

    When you start the table hit F1 to bring up pinmame options, from there make sure the box “show DMD/display Window” is UNCHECKED.  Hit okay then restart the table.  By doing this you are turning off the internal piname window, which hopefully is the issue.

    Hey, thanks for the reply. Yeah I have the DMD box unchecked. I feel like its a duplicate DMD ya know as I have seen a coloured version of the dmd displayed on the full screen. Like the same one but bigger…. it just does not make sense!?.

    Do you have the backglass running as well?  As a test try forcing that to disabled (1) in the registry to see what happens.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Visual Pinball\Controller\ForceDisableB2S

     

    edit: are you able to move either one of them with your mouse?  set VP to not exclusive full screen to test.

    Force disable backglass gives the same result = second dmd.

    The dmd that I want, on the backglass I am able to move around, the one on the playfield is locked fullscreen.

     

    How do I set Vp so it is not exclusive FS?

     

    Thanks for the help :)

    don’t worry about the full screen thing.  That was a just incase you couldn’t get to your mouse cursor.

    In the script delete the line that says UseVPMDMD = DesktopMode.

    I deleted that line but was still the same :(

    I have just recorded a short video, it is just uploading to youtube so you can see what is happening. I actually deleted all reg entries for the table and it started with the vpinmame options checked for use pin2dmd and unchecked for external dmd that time…… table ran perfectly, but no dmd?… soon as i try to use external dmd, the problems start

    Have a look at this video, hopefully it will give some clues as to what is happening.

    Thanks. A quick question. You don’t are only running your DMD as a regular LCD ? Right ? No hardware DMD like pindmd1, pindmd2, pindmd3 or pin2dmd attached ?

    Start with plain TAF for now.  No gold

    try your rom settings like this:

    Also in the script, line 63-ish.  make sure  .ShowDMDOnly=1

    If it’s already set to 1, try set to 0.  Then start the table, stop, go back and set to 1 and start again.  This is for all the diagnostic stuff showing below the DMD.

    If I set up the table as in Sliderpoint’s  suggestion… the table runs 100% perfect, but with no dmd at all.

    When you setup like his screenshot, are you sure the virtual dmd is not just behind the playfieled somewhere?  You can hit the “windows” button to see if it is running in the background
