Yours is definitely better than mine. Mine used to be excellent but it is starting to show its age. There's no doubt you could run my version of Apollo 13 with the replacement of the playfield that is in the download and the normal map for the rocket.

Oh yah... no problems running anything on FP, VPX, FX3 in 4K, as well as FP in VR on a Rift S with nice SS to make it look super clean with no jaggies.

SS? I haven't kept up with all the new technology.

Super Sampling.

Rendering something at a higher resolution and then downsampling it to get rid of jaggies. It's what makes something in VR look really good, and is essential for it.

The pinball cabinet , PC, VR and simpit are all now working together... and after a few years, I finally have pinball cabinet glass! I also have some tinted plexi blades to cover the MX Leds on the sides to match the back panel. It's going to look real nice when it's all setup!

It looks like you have it back together. The main reason I guess I don't have a pincab is I wouldn't have a clue of how to do the wiring. I suppose I could buy a Virtuapin but then if something goes wrong, I couldn't fix it.

This video finally shows the first reveal of my updates to my virtual pincab.

I reworked the Popper T-Bar to now display on my new Apron screen, and the Text and details to display on my mid-screen.

I also now have animated "grill videos" for each playlist, but you can have them for each table if you want.

I'll have gameplay demos showing the apron screen being used with PuP-Packs and the mid-screen being used with PUPDMD and PinEvent.

Your set up really looks better now. The tinted glass on the LEDs looks fantastic. The only thing that doesn't look quite right to my eye is the playfield appears to look darker than the other screens but that could be due to some sort of idiosyncrasy the camera.

It's definitely an issue from the angles you are seeing in the video. Most screens don't do great at large viewing angles. Also, the lights I have on so you can see well enough on the camera cause extra reflection on the glass, etc.

When you are in a normal playing view its nice and bright.

I sort of thought that it was the camera. Maybe I will have to travel to Canada to try it out.
