  1. New VPX feature - Surround sound output

    This is Rob's configuration and prob a better option for new adopters, as it minimises the output devices needed. Those of us coming from PMD Mk1, can still use the other method displayed as this will utilise the additional subs that we already have. (or we can pull them out and use them in another project like a MAME cabinet lol)
  2. New VPX feature - Surround sound output

    Rob's using mini amps. That was my mistake earlier. He is however just using the one subwoofer.... using bass routing on the windows side of things and setting your speakers a particular way, you are able to direct all bass to the one sub. I will let Rob explain further, because I will cock it up. Rob, perhaps you can modify one of my graphics to display your setup? Seems that the graphics are the easiest thing for people to get their head around.
  3. New VPX feature - Surround sound output

    A couple of diagrams that I hope will help display the setup options. I believe Rob is using the 7.1 surround, while I am using the "multi-amp" setup from my previous "non-VPXsurround" PMD....
  4. New VPX feature - Surround sound output

    Now there's an interesting question... what will my cab sound like when I play a VP9 table? I've not tested that, as I never play anything but VPX these days, but I will test that now.
  5. New VPX feature - Surround sound output

    If anyone is interested in a bit of read, you can see the full development thread of PMD (Poor Man's DOF) at Aussie Arcade Please note however: The parts shopping list at the front of the thread may change a little thanks to Rob's awesome VPX mod, as we should now be able to use a true 5.1 or 7.1 Surround Sound Amp, instead of 2 x 2.1 amps. So please keep that in mind as Rob's VPX Surround develops. Also Note: Those users who are currently running PMD with the 2 x 2.1 amps, do not need to change amps, as they will continue to work by simply plugging each into a separate port on the computer's surround sound card. (Of course if your sound card is stereo only, then you will need to upgrade that to support surround. (...and thankfully that's cheap and eazy-peezy)
  6. New VPX feature - Surround sound output

    I was thinking that it's time to reach out to table authors and offer them a PMD sound modded version of one of their own tables for perusal. But since discussing the grid/object positioning method with you Rob, I will hold off and see what you can make of it. To get table authors onboard and implementing surround sound into their creations from the get go, I think it would be wise that it be developed as much as possible, so that the requirement for table upgrades is minimised. Not only for the author, but for the end user as well. Let's take a mature product to market and blow peoples socks off.

    Awesome toxie I'm one of those who has requested sound control a number of times, so I can't thank you enough for it's inclusion. I've been testing this with Rob using my PMD (Poor Man's DOF) system and as good as my PMD was, this is a game changer! The example I have been using to describe how good it is, is the Martian Attack in AFM. I can now feel and hear four martians and even with my eyes closed, I know exactly where they are and which ones have dropped out when hit.
  8. New VPX feature - Surround sound output

    I've been testing some tables today with my PMD installation and it's just brilliant Rob. I really hope this makes its way to the official release and that table authors start using the power that this offers. To have the AudioFade(ActiveBall) in the scripts (where applicable) from the get go would be excellent. Then users need only tweak the remaining sound positioning to their liking using the SoundManager.

  14. Absolute Favorite Vp/fp Of All Time?

    I can't go there at all. "The times, they are a changin" and too many VPX releases are now rewriting the book.
  15. Guys How Do I Get Around This Script Error In Vp10?

    Did you set the VPX exe to Run as Administrator and leave compatibility mode unchecked?
