 +If you find that starting a vpx table that you need to use a mouse to click on table then two things you can try.

 +
 +the 2nd option if you cannot run FS exclusive is to have Popper simulate a mouse click after the table is loaded.

 +the last digit 5 will tell it to press the mouse so keep that #.
 +
 +the 3 number is the # of seconds after its loaded to press it, so if you need more than 3 seconds you can increase that 3.
