 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 ======

 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. 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.
  
-====== ​Portrait mode Setup ======+====== ​Update game/Table files with new versions... Awesome Feature! ​======
  
-It's STRONGLY suggested ​that if you are using cabinet ​to keep you playfield as landscape....veryvery few people will use portrait mode are you will be required to do more work in future (not just in Popper) to use your cabinet in portrait mode.+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.
  
-If you are using desktop mode or still wish to setup portrait mode then see this thread:+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.
  
-https://vpinball.com/forums/topic/pinup-popper-struggling-to-configure/+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!
