B2S Server - new feature - aspect ratio

Oh yes. Good catch GtxJoe. I forgot about that fix. Two good reasons to upgrade. The other, it will not ask/force you to upgrade anymore.

I already had that version of Pinball X installed, and it didn't fix that problem for me.

 

Sadly now, I have a new problem. After having everything working great last night....today all of a sudden I can't get any feedback or lighting in VP!

Pinball X Led-wiz and addressable leds work fine.....Future Pinball and DOFLinx work fine.... but not VP.

 

It's almost like DOF is not picking up on the B2sServer.  (or the other way around)  I've re-registered the DLL, copied back the original B2s version I used (for a long time) before, shutdown, etc.... but nothing. If I check the B2S server settings on the backglass, the plug-ins button is ghosted out, and its not seeing the DOF plug-in.

If I use the DOFTester, everything activates fine on a table.

 

How can I check to see if my system thinks there is more than one B2sServer install?

Run as admin on the .exe?

Yup...triple checked all exe files (all run as admin) and DLL files and made sure they were all unblocked.   Nothing changed from last night to today is the weird part...I'm wondering if something got corrupted somehow.,

Found the culprit... it was a combination of a few things....clearing out the registry of anything B2S and re-registering,etc all helped.

Hi Westworld,

A user on Facebook (I don't know his user ID here) posted an issue with this change.    When your B2S aspect ratio feature adjusts the backglass image position, it is also mis-aligning the DMD image meant for a third screen.    See the attached screenshots.     He is able to work around the problem by making a per-backglass screenres.txt file with the DMD position values counter-adjusted to compensate, but the aspect ratio settings ought to not affect the DMD window position. 

This has all reminded me that we need to get this change merged into the official source.   I will do that once we get this small issue fixed.   Thanks!

oops...

I have a real DMD, so I never noticed. Will take a look next weekend.

was not so difficult, at least I hope, not so easy to test with a notebook and only one screen. An updated build is enclosed. Could you ask the user to test this version? If it works, I'll upload the source. Only modification is to store the original offset and reuse it later (when it calculates the DMD form position).

thanks.

That works perfectly!!  Great job and thanks for the fast turnaround.  I will go in and delete all of my .res files now.

Thanks for the fix, Westworld!     If you can share the updated source I'll update the official repo.

@gtxjoeand @Thalamus you are both right, the first working solution was to get the problematic tables to a custom system. Not needed anymore since 2.33 because the problem was fixed.

But seems Terry means something else, so....
