  1. New to vp and having issue updating to vpx 10.4

    Well it didn't work. I need to remove pinball x and everything that was originally there and start over. No time right now, just stinks that it's new and I had to meddle when i thought I understood how to update but reality showed I didnt.

    I'm hoping to correct it this weekend. I believe that I'm very close to solving the riddle!!! Lol I know that what's left is something silly that I have set wrong or missing.

    I have watched MajorFrenchies videos a few times and trying to follow along. Seems pretty straight forward, just missing something yet. I do get a few errors and things happening that he doesn't experience but that's side note. Vp cabs have it set up that pinball x starts when cab turned on. It still is opening old files. I have reached out to them again. I spent Fri evening through Sun evening and will continue until I get it working. I know once I do and get used to how to do everything it will get easier. I am amazed that he made these videos less than a year ago and many newer versions of each item (VPX, DOF, DOFLinxs, pinball X, etc)

    Randr, I'm currently backing up my hard drive, then going to follow MajorFrenchies videos and will set up exactly same. Going to pass on TerryReds upgrades until I get it working. I watched Terrys video first and MajorFrenchies is what I should have seen first. Need to start at the beginning, but worried I will lose my fx2 games as they are the only thing working.

    Ok, I must be completely computer illiterate and very concerned. So from the videos attached, it appears that I need to start from ground zero and I'm very worried. I m afraid that the more I'm touching and clicking, the more damage I'm doing. I'm afraid that reinstalling everything will cause to need reconfigured (i.e. shaker motor, solenoids, did, etc.) And I going to end up with a cab that is completey not running. I downloaded 10.4 vpx and now uninstalled it. Still nothing (other than pinball fx2) works. I thought that downloading the new version would allow me to play better, higher resolution versions of games. I had no idea that it would shutdown everything. I believe hat the cab is Windows xp, don'tknow if that is a fdqctor or not. If I download everyhing in the videos (visual pinball, future pinball, pinball x, etc.) Will I lose the programmng of the lights etc.? Man I think I've messed the whole thing up with one click.

    Randr I believe VPX may have already been on the cab, just an older version. I am attaching pic of what I think you were asking for. The visual pinball folder and all contents are what I believe are from the vpx 10.4 download. There is an uninstall icon but afraid to click it.

    I had no idea and I am someone who does care. Is it better to wipe it all out (keeping the fx2 tables purchased through zen) and starting over? I want to do it right and the right /proper way. I would not want something that was loaded without proper authorization. I would rather wipe it out and start from scratch and struggle for as long as it takes than to try to reload something that should not have been loaded to start with by vpcabs. Pretty bummed out...

    Thanks randr and bambiplattfuss but I'll need to research more first. To be honest, this is part of the reason I bought a vpcabs machine and did not try to take on building everything from scratch as I am not sure how to do that. I already know thay before I tried to install 10.4 I should of backed up my drive. First lesson learned. Hind sight is 20/20. I know for most on the site all of this stuff is second nature, but I'm green as green gets. Thanks to everyone being helpful and patient with me and my questions.

    Agree randr, unfortunately for me the set up is a from 2015/2016 and I'm trying to get to vpx.
  12. New to vp and having issue updating to vpx 10.4

    It looks like 10.4 is looking in different folders than the vp9 that I had before

    This is the errors that I get. Backglass loads but playfield doesn't. Is this what that means? Sorry, again I'm brand new to this and trying to learn.
  14. Hey everyone, I'm brand new to vp and I'm having an issue. I just bought a new cab and having an isue. My new cab (VPCabs) has visual pinball and I tried to update to vpx 10.4, but now none of my tables work (worked before). I am not everly computer literate and I'm finding that I have a lot to learn to update my cab and add new tables that have higher resolution. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance
