 +//Note: there is currently a bug with ZEN fx3 (nothing to do with any frontend) that when you tell it to run Mars.pxp it will actually play Attack from Mars.pxp instead. The only solution is to go to the fx3 tables folder where Mars.pxp is located and make a copy of the file and call it Nars.pxp. And then use/add Nars.pxp to your PinUP fx3 emulator configuration (remove mars.pxp from popper menu).//
 +===== NEW!! Exciting update to PuPDMD inside Popper to mirror FX3/2 easily. =====

 +PupDMD is an alternative to using DMDExt. So if you do not want to use PuPDMD then follow the DMDExt instructions below;
 +
 +**For DMDExt:**
  
 DMDExt is difficult to get setup and should be done OUTSIDE of Frontend at first to make sure you have all the proper DMDEXT parameters set. Once that works then you can copy your tested parameters into the launch script of FX3. DMDExt is difficult to get setup and should be done OUTSIDE of Frontend at first to make sure you have all the proper DMDEXT parameters set.

 In DMDEXT if you're using –fx3-legacy option you need to setup the size of your DMD in FX3 EXACTLY to the correct width and height like this: In DMDEXT if you're using –fx3-legacy option you need to setup the size of your DMD in FX3 EXACTLY to the correct width and height like this:

 Here is a sample of a LCD-DMDext Setup that I use: You would change the #'s in the virtual-position parameters to your screen size position. THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH HARDWARE DMDs. Here is a sample of a LCD-DMDext Setup that I use: You would change the #'s in the virtual-position parameters to your screen size position.

 +===== Annoying "would you like to continue or start new game FX3 prompt?" =====
 +
 +{{:535cc312c2a9951cc2cc187de7f9e004.png}}
 +
 +FX doesn't have an option to disable that prompt to continue or start new game…so I made a 'workaround' that should work.
 +
 +download this zip and unblock-it and put the exe into the pinupsystem\launch folder
 +
 +[[http://www.nailbuster.com/pup/SendFXNewGame.zip|http://www.nailbuster.com/pup/SendFXNewGame.zip]]
 +
 +emulator setup FX3 in your launch script at the very bottom add these lines<code>
 +timeout 15
 +START /min "" "[STARTDIR]Launch\SendFXNewGame.exe"
 +</code>
 +
 +you may need to change the 15 (thats seconds) if your system is slower to launch.
 +
 +this will send keystrokes to 'start new game' always.
 +
 +//Note: this should work fine for default keyboard setup in fx3, if yours is different then don't use this workaround…//
 +===== Launching "Mars" table will launch "Attack from Mars" instead. =====
 +
 +There's a known bug IN Zen FX3....(NOT in PinUP).  If you use command line to launch mars, it will launch the wrong game.  Easy solution is to make a copy of MARS.PXP file (in FX3 app folder)  and call it NARS.PXP.  Then add NARS.PXP to Popper like a normal game and set the media for it (remember to 'hide' MARS.PXP file in games manager).
