 "**my directb2s backglass is overtop the pup-pack/​player?​**"​. Almost every PuP-Pack (see each packs install text) will require that you DO NOT have a directb2s backglass file enabled for that table. b2s screens will always go '​over'​ puppacks and screw up layering so you need to rename/​delete/​move the tables xxx.directb2s file. NOTE: if b2s server doesn'​t find an exact tablename.directb2s it will auto-scan/​find another directb2s file matching ONLY the first 6 characters. This means that if you rename your existing directb2s file that you make the first 6 characters different. A good practice you may find is to name your PUP Table VPX table like "PuP Bugs Bunny.vpx"​ "**my directb2s backglass is overtop the pup-pack/​player?​**"​.

-One thing to check for for Packs that use PuPCapture. ​ That using a different language than the author'​s PuPCapture will mean that they won't match and PuP Videos won't show.  So if author of pack used engish version of ROM then french words on rom won't match.+One thing to check for for Packs that use PuPCapture.

 Also, you may think you have a PuP-Pack working but could be missing 80% of the videos. A PuP-Pack can use a combination of rom_events and PuPCapture frames. so you may only be seeing the rom_events videos. Also, you may think you have a PuP-Pack working but could be missing 80% of the videos.

 +Having certain programs running in the background can also cause issues as they may interfere with VLC or prevent Overlays from displaying. Try closing out other programs / processes to see if that helps resolve any issues. Some reports of Logitech Gaming Software installed may cause issues, can try uninstall Logitech software to see if that helps. Another possible item was a Remote Desktop Sharing agent running. So best to disable all items to check and enable one-by-one to see if it helps.
  
 also, if you are NOT using freezy dmddevice.dll,​ like perhaps you are using luckys'​ pin2dmd dmddevice.dll then you will not be able to use any puppacks that use PuPCapture (most will in the future). also, if you are NOT using freezy dmddevice.dll,​ like perhaps you are using luckys'​ pin2dmd dmddevice.dll then you will not be able to use any puppacks that use PuPCapture (most will in the future).
