 +====== TroubleShooting ======
 +
 +DO not try auto-recording until you can do all 3-4 PuP-Screens manually. ​ that way you know your Popper config is working correctly.
 +
 +You may notice things like a bg recording on your playfield or vice versa. ​ This is just an indication that Popper was unable to record the screen and used the last known good recording.
 +
 +Most common errors are having PuP-Displays with negative windows positions, or PuP-Displays that are larger than a windows screen. ​ FFMPEG will fail with an error like '​record window outside windows screen'​.... ​ (OBS/GPU do not have this issue as they are configured differently).
 +
 +to troubleshoot:​
 +
 +Do a manual recording of a bg/topper and look at the 3 log files in pinupsystem/​recording subfolder. ​ you should be able to determine what causing it.  most likely you have invalid pupdisplay screen co-ordinates (like negative, or width wider than screen…ffmpeg doens’t like that).
 +
 +if you have just a BLACK screen from recording like with Future Pinball: ​ This is a normal limitation as ffmpeg and even sometimes OBS may not be able to record some games that run exclusive full-screen. ​ You will need to try OBS or GPU recording, or set your emulator to run non-exclusive when recording. ​ (NOTE: ​ Popper will put vpx in non-exclusive when you enter recording mode).
