 +
 +whats new:
 +
 +V1.4.6
 +
 +  * Player: Added .ISPlaying to interface to get status of players via table script (default off).
 +  * Player: Added z-order (send to top/back) for Labels/Images via table script.
 +  * Player: Added delay all msgs to pup command (useful for end of ball sequence)
 +  * Player: Added delay to PuPPackEditor/PuPPacks. Use negative rests (-2500 = delay 2.5 seconds)
 +  * Popper: AttractJukeBoxScreen=3 (changes the behaviour of attract mode, will goto next in playlist. Once done it will then load into another random playlist. Good for video jukebox feature. (default off, the # is the pupdisplay# to use to monitor when media is done to advance in list).
 +  * Popper: HUGE: **full-alpha for wheels and wheelbar pngs**. This will allow the ability to have your wheelbar backgrounds to support alpha-shadows to look super duper awesome.
 +  * Popper: HUGE: Popper Batch Auto Record is now easily accessible via media manager form and can now work **OVER NETWORK**  configs. Yes, you can now organize and control a complete batch record without touching your running vpin….this is a must for network config users!!
 +  * Popper: Add new games. Rewrote the Selection Grid for easier selection of multiple games, also faster scanning.
 +  * Popper: Media Manager. redesigned/worked the listbox that will display only matching/working media when you select a pup-display.
 +  * Popper: Media Manager: **Huge!**  Now in media list, you can CONVERT a single media file at a time based on configurable ffmpeg scripts. Scripts are located in Recordings sub-folder and you can add as many as you need/want.
 +  * Popper: Added some more ‘checks’ to warn you if something isn’t setup fully.
 +  * Popper: Easier Volume control: “Game Volume” Field on Game Manager has been changed to a %, so **if you are using that volume field on a individual game you will need to adjust**  accordingly. This will allow you for example, launch a game at 80% of current PC level. Popper will auto return volume to pre-game settings on return.
 +  * Player: **Drop shadows**  and Outlines for FONT now supported!! bling-bling….
 +  * Playlist manager. Add to global favs as well as local Playlist fav
 +  * **Launch script: added [playlistid] value so you can do things based on current playlistid.**
 +  * **AHK script support**: if launch/close script starts with “;AHK” the Popper Script will be treated as an autohotkey script. (advanced, if you don’t know what AHK is…you wont use this )
 +  * Many other added small tweaks/visual UI stuffs.
 +  * General tweaks to enhance performance and/or more error trapping to avoid error dialog boxes.
 +  * New POPMedia Server
 +  * New Animated PNGS/GIF SUPPORT!! (APNG are preferred).
