The problem I'm having is in Manddrakk"s AC DC Tables, I downloaded all 4 distributed the associate files. ran the tables and they all come up with -- Script Error Line 0
Unable to load external script "LEDWIZ_Settings.ini"

I do not have a Ledwiz and could not find a info text to help fix.
All help will be very appreciated!

You could delete all the lines in the script that refer to LEDWIZ but it is much easier to simply add the following 2 files to your tables folder that I think are included in the download of the table:

LedWIZ_Class.vbs
LEDWiz_settings.ini

LedWIZ was written to support pinball cabinets but the table will function correctly on a stndard desktop PC if you add the 2 files to your "Tables" folder. You might want to read the tutorial on FP at the following link:

viewtopic.php?f=84&t=6054

It discusses LedWIZ on step 20.

George: Thank-you, I added those 2 files into Libraries folder instead of the Tables folder.

I now have your complete guide printed out, and I will try to follow it closer, as you seam to have most everything covered. Thnx again!

TerryRed says you can create a subfolder named "Scripts" in your "Future Pinball" folder and save the files there. He says it eliminates clutter but it is only 2 files. I decided to move them there and it works so I now have these 6 files in there now:

LEDWiz_settings.ini
ZBRrollingballsoundslib.txt
LedWIZ_Class.vbs
MainScript.vbs
NightmareScript.vbs
ZBRrollingballsoundslib.vbs

I have downloaded over a 1000 tables so it is not that many files.

George: I took your advice about Terry Red's article and put those files in the script Dir.
Now I'm curios about - Main
Script.vbs and NightmareScript.vbs. What does the MainScript.vbs do? I love Nightmare on Elm Street but it plays great, Maybe I have already adjusted the script. Always trying to learn. Thanks again!

The other files are for tables that have external script. It is not NOES but actually this table:

http://www.pinsimdb.org/pinball/table-2502-nightmare

The MainScript.vbs goes to this:

http://www.pinsimdb.org/pinball/table-2 ... es_n_bones

The rolling ball sounds are for Smoke's tables and Slamt1lt is starting to use it also.

I don't know why the author of these 2 tables chose to save the script externally. The advantage to the rolling ball sounds and LEDWiz is that you can easily apply the exact same script to many tables.

Well I've just collected 2 more tables, I'm a real sucker for new tables. And George thanks again for all your ever present help. I'm a senior and I find this a very interesting and fun hobby. I'll keep learning.
