-====== 4. How to import and use a puplookup.csv Database file ======+**Adding Media for custom Themes:**
  
-The ‘puplookup.csv’ is a DataBase (DB)which is filled with data, that you normally would have to type in yourself in the fields of the **‘All Games’**section of the **Game Manager.**+If you want to have your own "Popper" default videos and wheel imagesthen you need to copy the new media to your "PoPMedia \ Default \ System" folder.
  
-Data like for example: TableNameManufacturer, Release Year, Game Type, etc.+If you want to have your own "Emulator" default videosthen you need to copy the new videos to your "PoPMedia \ Emulator \ System" folder.
  
-This DataBase file will help you automatically fill in the fields by just doing some simple mouse clicks (or typing in few keywords).+Playlist media only plays when the Playlist is"highlighted"This includes media for sub-playlists. The only exception are wheelbars. When you go into a playlist, it will use that Playlist's wheelbar. There are no Loading videos for Playlist.
  
-\\ +Each and every Table however can have their own media for everything.
-That sounds pretty handy, right?+
  
-Before we start with the instructions, there’s one thing you need to do before hand: +Don't forget that HOME LIST can also have its own default media.
- +
-===== A. Backing up your (current) DB ===== +
- +
-1. Start '**PinUP Popper Config**'.\\ +
-2. Go to the '**Popper Setup**' tab (<font inherit/inherit;;#c0392b;;inherit>**1**</font>).\\ +
-3. Click on the '**Backup DB**' button (<font inherit/inherit;;#c0392b;;inherit>**2**</font>). +
- +
-**{{:d488b9c816e609819eafb73879a9195f.png}}** +
- +
-4. Confirm with ‘**Yes**’ in the Popup Window that opens: +
- +
-\\ +
-**{{:200d5a37aa190229fc18ba892662585b.png}}**+
  
-5. Now Close Pinup Popper Config by clicking ‘**Exit Setup**’.+If you are using multiple wheelbars for example…don't forget to add a wheelbar to the HOME LIST, or the last wheelbar image used within a Playlist will still be active when going back to the HOME LIST.
