-==== How to Make A Tarcisio Wheel easily ====+==== How to make a 'mature' playlist and hide them from others ==== 
 + 
 +make a playlist called "special" and set a 4-digit passcode on it in playlist manager. then add those games. should also set the 'hide from attrac' setting for this playlist too. 
 + 
 +also, you want on each of these 'mature' games, the first field in game manager is "status'. set to mature/hidden.
  
-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTy-QDX2sf8+Noteif you are using any active sql playlist make sure you filter out and use visible=1 so it doesn't pickup any mature games…..

 +==== Play background music while browsing tables. ====
 +
 +Popper supports default background music by playlist.
 +
 +its pretty easy to setup. first, set your default music for each playlist in media manager.
 +
 +then in popper config/global settings/displays: change audio from (active if media found) to (active and update)

 +
 +==== Custom DOF effects by Table/Game ====
 +
 +By default, PinUP Popper will use effects E900-E921 from your "PinUP Menu" dof online config tool. You can force it to be a certain effect by game by setting the DOF command on a certain Table/Game if you want.

 +
 +==== Make your Home Playlist display only your Global Favs ====
 +
 +Easy, just set your homeplay list to active sql and put this as the sql statement.
 +<file>
 +
 +SELECT * FROM Games gm join playlistdetails pd on pd.gameid=gm.gameid where pd.isFav=2 ORDER BY GameDisplay
 +
 +</file>
 +
 +Now anytime you add/remove global favs on a game it will automagically be updated in your Home Playlist.
 +
 +----
 +
 +==== A little 'hack' to customize media for System Playlists (favs): ====
 +
 +here's a little 'hack' to make those playlists media available to manage.\\
 +\\
 +1> playlist manager. under a sub playlist or anywhere you create 3 playlists and set them as visible=false with no tables or other config\\
 +2> the trick is that you must name them exactly "favs", "mostplayed", "mostrecent". (without quotes)\\
 +3> they will not appear in frontend as they are not visible. but you will find them in media manager now and media should work.
 +
 +**OR** you could just handle the media manually(no playlists) as they should be "pl_favs" , "pl_mostplayed", "pl_mostrecent"… but its so much easier to do via media manager
 +
 +----
 +
 +==== Run utilites and other 'special' tasks from PinUP Front-End ====
 +
 +Maybe you have a batch file/program you want to run that does something. Like grab latest DOF table configs etc.
 +
 +You can make an emulator called "Utis". and make the game extension BAT. copy the different bat files into that folder and add to Popper.
 +
 +Now in your emulator launch you want to call that gamefilename and afterwards you want to run this exe.
 +
 +[[https://www.nailbuster.com/pinupdates/ForceReturn.zip|https://www.nailbuster.com/pinupdates/ForceReturn.zip]]
 +
 +put that in your launch sub-folder. and in your launch script after you do your thing, run this forcereturn.exe. It will emulate the game starting, and exiting 1-2 seconds later so Popper returns cleanly. you don't need anything in your closescript as it will auto-return to popper menu.
