I decided to do a simple “Basics” video of:

What is Pinup Player, What are PuP-Packs, What is Pinup Popper, What is Pinup System.

It’s an overview that goes over the basics and some of the many features of each to hopefully clarify some things for people who get them mixed up, or don’t understand how they work.

With my new Jaws Ultimate Pro 1.06 DOFLinx MX SSF PuP mod and PuP-Pack about to come out soon.... I thought it would be good to start to teach you guys what PuP is all about.

I'll have more videos coming to explain more and show how to get it to work with FP.

Thanks Terry! Your video really makes things more clear. Also, I want to try your Jaws Pup-Pack for desktop. I might be able to adapt it for use with my "Rotated Display" method of playing tables in portrait mode on my desktop. Whenever I create one of them I end up stretching the playfield vertically a bit more than is needed so I might be able to create some real estate for it.

You know I have posted many tables where I have included a "Rotated Display" version of the table but I don't have a clue whether anyone uses it. All I can say is it gets downloaded.

I have started doing some "Virtual Pinball Essentials" videos on my channel.

This first video is the best place to START for installing all the prerequisite software you are going to need if you want to use PuP-Packs with Future Pinball (or Visual Pinball).

It's essential to have all the correct software installed, and in correct order to prevent headaches....and to do it the right way the first time.

It's super easy if you use my video guide and the PuP wiki for all the details and file downloads.

http://www.nailbuster.com/wikipinup/dok ... tall_guide

https://youtu.be/nI8wD4Pwvfg


Once you are at the point of installing Pinup Player... I would wait until I have my follow up videos for setting that up for desktop use. You can install the PuP files following Nailbuster's video, but hold off on the setup (size and position) of the PuP screens unless you are a cabinet user.

Then you will be ready for the rest which will be setting up the PuP screens for Desktop use and DOFLinx...but I would wait for that until I get another video out for setting that up.



Also, you guys can check out my Visual Pinball Essential video as well if you like...

https://youtu.be/JE-YzV5CyX0


...and my 3 part Future Pinball Essentials video tutorial. It cover mostly all the basics... but I'm leaving the more advanced BAM features and tutorials for other videos as the run time for these video was already long enough.



Finally! The Virtual Pinball "Software" Essentials videos for Future Pinball - PART 1, 2 and 3

Future Pinball may be 11 years old now...but that hasn't stopped it from getting better and better.... thanks to Ravarcade's BAM (Better Arcade Mode).

Today, Future Pinball looks much better, plays much better and has loads of new features that table authors and players can use. The potential has barely been tapped into.

This topic has A LOT of content, and I can't cover everything in one video (there's more coming)...but I cover the entire spectrum to give you all the basics so you understand what everything is and how it works. You will be up and running with Future Pinball, BAM, tables, and DMDs the right way... the FIRST time!

I'm sure you guys will watch those FP videos and be like "No you missed this!" or "You got that wrong!" Only so much you can fit into one video running completely on the fly by memory.

PuP-Packs on TOP Demo!

OK...so here is a demo video that shows off numerous tables and PuP-Packs for FP, VPX, and FX3 all being played on ONE screen in Desktop view, directly from Popper with a Desktop Theme, and then afterward with no front-end at all! (just from the editor,etc) I explain how they work with my pupinit.bat files and also show how what's going on behind the scenes to make it work.

I will have another video showing the setup of Pinup Player for Desktop view, as well as the specific setups needed for VPX, FP and FX3.

I have Bookmarks in the video descriptions in all my new videos so you can easily click and go directly to what you want to see!

Not until I get PUPDMD integrated into PinEvent. Jaws U-Pro is basically done to work with DOFLinx...but he new BAM COM Extensions and PinEvent has allowed FP tables to not only run easier for DOF PUP SSF without needing to setup and run DOFLinx...but now ALL of PUP's features can be used!

I can't look at DMD dots anymore! :) PUP DMD just looks so nice compared to DMDs.

So when PinEvent, PUPDMD is all sorted and that is "done" and not in a beta testing point... then RetroFlair - BAM will get finished. Then I'll update Jaws U-Pro for PinEvent....and maybe also PUPDMD (which will take a bit to get just that done!)
