    Congrats to the devs on a final release. This was my favorite beta cycle in terms of new features.

    Is there a way in upcoming versions for this exe and vpinmame to stop storing settings in the registry? Regular mame and other emulators using flat files. This would be <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>so</span> much more convenient for mass changes and portability/backup.

    Also, would it be possible to get resolutions that are not standard? For instance, I can set my monitor to true 4k but native is not. I would like to just run it native which is very close to 4k. If I unplug monitors while the pc is running, everything goes all katywampus.

    I really appreciate what VP has become though. Super outstanding all around. It’s more future than future pinball at this point (to me). I just have these basic gripes yet.

    I recently updated to the EXE only (v. All In One) and now I am getting an immediate crash on launch of a game from VPX. Literally flashes on screen, backglass appears and then VPX crashes. Any idea about what might be happening? I did a basic update (pasted in new files), wondering if I updated incorrectly or missed a step? Any help would be amazing.

    @pinguy77 : Don’t try to be smarter than the one-in-all installer. It is made by the devs and they know what they are doing. Many ways to fix it though. Let’s say you now have it installed in c:\vpinball – rename that folder to c:\vpinball.old – run the one in all installer. Now install to the OLD path c:\vpinball – move now tables, vpinmame roms and stuff you need from c:\vpinball.old and you should be fine. Once everything is verified ok – delete the folder you’ve messed up. Doing it this way, you’re registry should still be pointing to the old location and you should be just fine.

    Thanks, was worried about using the All-In-One as I had just gotten everything working again after having to restart because of a CPU failure. I will follow your approach here and report back. Thanks for the help.

    @Thalamus: Thanks so much for the advice, your approach worked and I have it back up and running. Only issue that I seem to be encountering now is that my Coin In button on my Cab is not working in game. I checked my VPX Preferences and all other button mappings are functional, correct and working. Once I load the game the Coin In Buttons don’t register and only pressing the 5 key on the keyboard works, which is weird as its not mapped in the preferences.

    Any idea why that might be happening? I have never experienced that before.

    Maybe at one time did actually change the vpmkeys.vbs or what it is called ( I’m away from pin right now and I’m getting old ). I strongly advice against it unless it really needed. Remapping the “standard” keys that has been hard coded in several tables just makes a mess if you do. Are you saying that you are not able to key coin for any game anymore ?

    Why not re-map it into more standard ?

    Personally I have only one key for adding credits and that is the 5 key. I know that pr. examle Mike da Spike has a much more advanced system set up.

    You could just rename the current vpmkeys.vbs in scripts folder and then copy the one you had in pinmame.old, if I’m right.

    Is the .exe supposed to be run in WinXP SP3 compatibility mode?  For some reason, the properties of VPinballX.exe show up as:

    unnamed

    and I can’t change the compatibility mode setting.  The .exe also has the symbol on it that it’s being run as Admin, even though that box isn’t checked.

    If I change the name of the file, then the Admin symbol goes away and if I then open Properties, compatibility mode is turned off.  Seems really odd.  For the most part, things are working fine, but have been trying to get PUP working and having issues, and one thing I have read is that nothing should be running as Admin.

    Really should add pictures and what game you are showing
    Information about your hardware and all the Different software you are using
    Make sure you have exceptions setup if you are running any anti virus software

    Are your monitor drivers up to date? This is a separate thing from the Nvidia drivers, it basically helps tell the video card what’s hooked up to it.

    Have a faint feeling that I’ve seen this question here somewhere already. But, I must admit – I’m a bit too lazy to go hunting for it as I don’t have this issue. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the solution either. Maybe the original poster recognized the issue and solution ?
