How to quickly use the UI in gamesmanager to rename to PrOPPER format.
1> hide windows taskbar on 'other displays'. in win10 if you right click on taskbar and go to taskbar settings theres an option to “show taskbar on all displays” turn that off
2> set your wall-paper(background) in windows to be solid black for all monitors.
3> right-click on desktop and select view-“show desktop icons”. This will temp hide all icons on desktop… right-click select again if you want to use/see the icons again.
all this is useful in case your emulator 'blinks'/shows the desktop for a second and it will look 'ok'…. (will just be a temp black screen)…
Haven't posted a Monday Tip or Trick in a while. This one is for anyone that may have missed this tip. In controller setup you can (should) setup the “system menu” item to be the same key as 'exit emulator'. That way while you're in menu/browsing you can bring up the exit/shutdown menu…
Hey, just made a little 'did-you-know?' video about feature in media manager to find missing display media… nothing new, just sometimes people skip/don't know about all the little things in PinUP.
Happy Friday! I made this video to show people how easy it is to change a particular PuP-Pack that is designed for your backglass and have it work with your Topper screen instead.
Maybe you have a batch file/program you want to run that does something. Like grab latest DOF table configs etc.
You can make an emulator called “Utis”. and make the game extension BAT. copy the different bat files into that folder and add to Popper.
Now in your emulator launch you want to call that gamefilename and afterwards you want to run this exe.
put that in your launch sub-folder. and in your launch script after you do your thing, run this forcereturn.exe. It will emulate the game starting, and exiting 1-2 seconds later so Popper returns cleanly. you don't need anything in your closescript as it will auto-return to popper menu.
