 +IMPORTANT: with the new vpx versions, tables take a bit longer to load up, and some large tables can take more than 30 seconds to loadup. **You should set your startup delay to 40 seconds in AutoRecord or more depending on your PC speed.**

 +====== TroubleShooting ======
 +
 +DO not try auto-recording until you can do all 3-4 PuP-Screens manually. that way you know your Popper config is working correctly.
 +
 +You may notice things like a bg recording on your playfield or vice versa. This is just an indication that Popper was unable to record the screen and used the last known good recording.
 +
 +Most common errors are having PuP-Displays with negative windows positions, or PuP-Displays that are larger than a windows screen. FFMPEG will fail with an error like 'record window outside windows screen'…. (OBS/GPU do not have this issue as they are configured differently).
 +
 +to troubleshoot:
 +
 +Do a manual recording of a bg/topper and look at the 3 log files in pinupsystem/recording subfolder. you should be able to determine what causing it. most likely you have invalid pupdisplay screen co-ordinates (like negative, or width wider than screen…ffmpeg doens’t like that).
 +
 +**NB: very common if you forget to put exception in your anti-virus for PinUpSystem(and subfolders) that some of the background exes during recording get removed….check the log files for messages like 'file not found'**
 +
 +other items to try:
 +
 +  * in recordings subfolder, delete the file "recording.txt" if it exists.
 +  * in recordings subfolder, remove any output.mp4, output.mkv files if they exist
 +  * to test secruity issues, test running pinupmenu.exe as admin and see if there's any difference to know if its a windows security reason.
 +  * ensure you have a pupcloser.exe file in the recording folder,  if not they its your anti-virus that 'ate' it... common
 +  * again.  if you need to ask for support,  include the LOG files from recording sub-folder.  It solves 99% of issues.
 +
 +if you have just a BLACK screen from recording like with Future Pinball: This is a normal limitation as ffmpeg and even sometimes OBS may not be able to record some games that run exclusive full-screen. You will need to try OBS or GPU recording, or set your emulator to run non-exclusive when recording. (NOTE: Popper will put vpx in non-exclusive when you enter recording mode).
