 Warning: "​B2S_SetUp.exe"​ can be used to edit this file, but the current version handles only the 12 first lines! So it is better to edit the file with a text editor. Also, if some options appear to not have effect on your display (especially lines 13 to 17) make sure you use the latest version (at least 1.3.0.3) Warning: "​B2S_SetUp.exe"​ can be used to edit this file, but the current version handles only the 12 first lines!

 The index of the monitor to use to display the backglass is at line 5 (usually a single digit number, 1, 2 or 3). If your backglass does not show up consistently on the same screen after computer reboots, instead of using a monitor index, you can use the x coordinate of the top left point of your screen, prefixed with "​@"​ (example: @1920, if your backglass screen top left x coordinate is 1920 according to Windows, which should be the case if you have a landscape 1080p playfield) The index of the monitor to use to display the backglass is at line 5 (usually a single digit number, 1, 2 or 3).

-By default, the B2S backglass picture will fill the backglass area defined at the lines 3,4,6,7. However, if the "​small"​ property of your B2S is activated (reached by right clicking on your B2S screen once loaded in VPX), your backglass area will still be defined by lines 3,4,6,7, but the actual image will be displayed only in the rectangle defined by the coordinates from lines 13,​14,​15,​16. In this case, the part of the backglass not covered by the image will be black (not transparent). To fill this gap with another color or a background image, an image file can be specified at line 17.+By default, the B2S backglass picture will fill the backglass area defined at the lines 3,4,6,7.
