-====== ​NON-Steam version of FX3 & FX2 ======+====== ​Working with FX3 & FX2 ======
  
-The default install works fine for STEAM version of FX3. This is for the non-steam version of FX3.+Most common issue: Most people cannot use FX3 in Exclusive Screen ModeMany people found that VLC media will be crashed when returning from FX3/2. The easy solution ​is to setup FX3 in its video settings to use Window-Borderless.
  
-For FX3 =non steam Sample Launch Script:+Also, you must run the your steam-client on windows startup (the default behaviour). You do not want to run steam for the first time from launch script.

 +===== NEW!!  Exciting update to PuPDMD inside Popper to mirror FX3/2 easily. ===== 
 + 
 +see here: [[:​pupdmd_fx3|http://​www.nailbuster.com/​wikipinup/​doku.php?​id=pupdmd_fx3|]] 
 + 
 +**For DMDExt:** 
 + 
 +DMDExt is difficult to get setup and should be done OUTSIDE of Frontend at first to make sure you have all the proper DMDEXT parameters set. Once that works then you can copy your tested parameters into the launch script of FX3
 + 
 +In DMDEXT if you're using –fx3-legacy option you need to setup the size of your DMD in FX3 EXACTLY to the correct width and height like this: 
 + 
 +{{:​288ae90cb6a301fe5e0e78ee06e95726.png}} 
 + 
 +===== DMDExT with FX ===== 
 + 
 +//note: dmdext.exe is an exe that will mirror the FX3 dmd to a better looking LCD-DMD window or your hardware DMD. It is DIFFERANT THAN dmddevice.ini and it only gets its settings via command line parameters… no changes to the dmddevice.ini will help/affect the DMDExt.exe program.//​ 
 + 
 +Here is a sample of a LCD-DMDext Setup that I use: You would change the #'s in the virtual-position parameters to your screen size position. THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH HARDWARE DMDs. 
 + 
 +<​file>​ 
 +cd "​C:​\Visual Pinball\VPinMAME"​ 
 + 
 +start /min ""​ "​dmdext.exe"​ mirror --source=pinballfx3 -q -d virtual ​ --fx3-legacy --virtual-hide-grip --virtual-position=5786 514 1560 375 --pinup PINUP\[GAMENAME]

 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +a sample one for pin2dmd would replace the dmdext line from above with this: 
 + 
 +<​file>​ 
 +start /min ""​ "​dmdext.exe"​ mirror --source=pinballfx3 --fx3-legacy -q -d pin2dmd --pinup PinUP\[GAMENAME]

Line 52: Line 106:
 rem taskkill /f /im "​dmdext.exe"​ rem taskkill /f /im "​dmdext.exe"​
 </​code>​ </​code>​
- 
-This is what I found to work for FX3 non steam, Its only a minor change of an added backslash 
- 
-Also note that you may need to check for spacing in the word pinballFX3 or pinball FX3 and change as required 
- 
-Added Fx2 for those who still use it (Non Steam also) 
- 
-Added close scripts for FX2 & Fx3
