 +===== Focus Issues =====
 +
 +If you find that starting a vpx table that you need to use a mouse to click on table then two things you can try.
 +
 +The first is easiest and works for most. Under VPX display settings you need to run your tables "full screen exclusive mode"
 +
 +{{:​7a4492758cca34a33be0d3b07cab8cc6.png}}
 +
 +the 2nd option if you cannot run FS exclusive is to have Popper simulate a mouse click after the table is loaded.
 +
 +Change the vpxstarter.exe line in your emulator launch script to this
 +
 +<​code>​
 +START ""​ "​[STARTDIR]Launch\VPXSTARTER.exe"​ 30 10 60 "​Visual Pinball Player"​ 3 0 5
 +</​code>​
 +
 +the last digit 5 will tell it to press the mouse so keep that #.
 +
 +the 3 number is the # of seconds after its loaded to press it, so if you need more than 3 seconds you can increase that 3.
 +
 +===== Weird crashes on certain tables when launched via Popper FrontEnd =====
 +
 +AT91Jit must be 1 for the following tables:\
 +
 +Walking Dead LE\
 +Star Trek LE\
 +ACDC Premium\
 +Metallica Premium\
 +Mustang

 +
 +===== Get "​ROMNAME not found" when i'm sure the rom file is there. =====
 +
 +Test running VPX in non-exclusive Full screen mode and see if error goes away…
 +
 +if yes, then Need to set DDRAW=0 in registry for each game (good to do it on default when starting out).
