Here's where you can info/examples on how other people got their hardware/software up and running.

Cactus Canyon Continued with Hardware DMD

First get CCC up and running outside of Popper, making sure you get dmdext sample batch file ready and working. Then add table to Popper and on game manager go to CCC and find the field 'Custom Var #2' and set it to “CCC” without quotes.

then in your vpx launch script you want to add this to it at the top: (this is a sample, you need to change the parameters for dmdext for your hardware!)

Launch Script:

if "[CUSTOM2]"=="CCC" (
cd "c:\visual pinball\vpinmame"
start /min "" dmdext.exe mirror --source screen --position 4550 900 512 128 --no-virtual -d pindmdv3 -p COM3
)

Note For LCD/DMD you would do similar but the dmdext.exe line needs to be different like this:

start /min "" c:/dmdext/dmdext.exe mirror --source screen --position 5700 0 1400 400 --destination=virtual --virtual-stay-on-top --virtual-hide-grip --virtual-position 5700 0 1154 555

note: your #'s will be different depending on your screen layout/setup.

Add This to the end of close script:

 if "[CUSTOM2]"=="CCC" (start /min "" taskkill /f /im dmdext.exe)

Arcooda Pinball

YOU MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH TPAMOD before attempting this

Download or use any display rotation program. http://noeld.com/dl.asp?filename=display.zip - that's used in the example.

In Games Manager select new emulator and right-click on grid “import games” use this file:

1. Create a new emulator - set the launch exe to where Steam is installed.

Start Script - DMDEXT is optional and requires you to know the screen position of what you're mirroring - and your own dmd screen positions.

START "" "[STARTDIR]Launch\display.exe" /device 1 /rotate 90

cd "C:\dmdext"

start /min "" "dmdext.exe" mirror --source=screen --position 795 21 607 282 --destination=pin2dmd --fps=60 --no-virtual -q

START "" "[STARTDIR]Launch\VPXSTARTER.exe" 10 10 5 "Malzbies Pinball"

START "" "[DIREMU]\steam.exe" -applaunch 729580 -startTable [GAMENAME]

Close Script:

START "" "[STARTDIR]Launch\display.exe" /device 1 /rotate 0

timeout 5
