Welcome!

You can download exe files at the following link and I have written an explanation of them:

We would be happy to answer your questions.

You need to have FP installed as you already have. You just download the exe file from pinsimdb at he link I posted above. You delete or rename the existing exe file. Then you rename the exe you downloaded as:

Future Pinball.exe

Then you place it in the same folder as the original "Future Pinball.exe". Which should be here:

C:\Games\Future Pinball

That is all there is to it. Some of the download files include other stuff than than the FP exe file. Only use the FP exe file.

Hi GeorgeH, I used FP 2.6 no Logo, moved the original one to desktop,placed the 2.6 in FP folder and named it Future Pinball.exe like you said, started thru FPLoader Shortcut, could not locate it. Renamed it as Future Pinball, start thru FPLoader Shortcut and it worked.Going thru Slams latest tables, Strikes and Spares crashes halfway loading, tryed FP 2.7 Slamtilt no logo, same crash,Star Treks ok, Gorgar Mega 1.5 drop targets dont show,put original back everthings good.

Try performing Step 3 of my guide that talks about "Run this program as an administrator":

So i can get the other exes (no watermark) running with bam no problem, but every table,including slams latest, cant see drop targets,when the ball hits that area,drop target only rises so far can see the top of them?? Anyone else had this? Ive reverted back to original,gives a Bam crash log probably memory,otherwise they play fine. Ive read everything and tryed numerous settings. Slams new Star Trek is Awesome, adjusted for hologram explosions. :D

Do you have "vertical sync" checked on the "Video / Rendering Options" screen?
