 all done.. all done..
  
-===== Backing up your (current) DB =====+====== Auto-Play Intro Media when Popper Starts Up.  ====== 
 + 
 +Nice feature that can play on all/any pupdisplays during startup. Press any flipper/key to stop startup videos and go to home list. 
 + 
 +Easy Startup support!!! Go to PlayList manager in Setup. Make a playlist called exactly ‘StartUP’ (off root, no quotes). Then go to Media Manager/​Playlist select Startup Playlist and add/modify all media for Startup Playlist. Will auto-start on that playlist…on button press it will show home-list… (startup folder is never visible in FE). 
 + 
 +Starting in v1.4.3 of Popper you can use new custom option: IntroSkipSeconds=x ​ when using intro intro video, after x seconds will goto home menu and stop intro videos. 
 + 
 +====== Backing up your (current) DB ======
  
 1. Start '​**PinUP Popper Config**'​.\\ 1. Start '​**PinUP Popper Config**'​.\\

 5. Now Close Pinup Popper Config by clicking ‘**Exit Setup**’. 5. Now Close Pinup Popper Config by clicking ‘**Exit Setup**’.
 +====== Restoring a backup of Database. ======
 +
 +Do this with all PUP apps closed!
 +
 +The database is just one file in PinUPSystem called PUPDatabase.db
 +
 +Your backups are in the subfolder called pupbackup (each file is renamed with time/date in name).
 +
 +Simply make a copy of one of the backup files you want to restore (rename it to PUPDatabase.db) and overwrite the existing PUPDatabase.db file in PinUPSystem… that’s it.
 +
 +====== Update game/Table files with new versions... Awesome Feature! ======
 +
 +Popper has an amazing feature that will allow you to simply update existing game/table files and even other files like directb2s/​pov files, you can do these even across the network if setup correctly.
 +
 +you should add/keep the actual filename.vpx without version in your Popper Db when first adding to system….you can put author/​version # in the extra fields in Popper.
 +
 +watch this video: [[http://​youtu.be/​4kC49EYpEHI|http://​youtu.be/​4kC49EYpEHI]]
 +
 +Then… watch the ‘auto/​rename’ update feature of Popper Video. You can simply drag/drop new vpx/​directb2s/​pov in game manager and it will automagically rename all to the ‘standard’ filename and you won’t have to do anything else (maybe update the version# field manually if you’d like)
 +
 +====== Portrait mode or Desktop Setup ======
 +
 +It's STRONGLY suggested that if you are using cabinet to keep your playfield as landscape….very,​ very few people will use portrait mode are you will be required to do more work in future (with VPX tables for example) to use your cabinet in portrait mode.
 +
 +If you are using desktop mode or still wish to setup portrait mode however…. Popper 1.4 update now has NEW Portrait and Desktop Themes!
