New User here. Tables crash or unresponsive?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

  I have tried to be as self sufficient as possible without bothering the community too much but I think I really do need help now. I have come across from Future Pinball and the transition to VP is proving to be a little daunting. 


So I will start by saying I am initially trying to get tables running in a single screen scenario, no backglass or DMD

I have installed VpinMame and Sam etc,  and my tables do actually load up.  

ACDC give a windows crash and Visual Pinball Has stopped responding message. I see the table load and the lights show momentarily before the instant crash

Addams Family loads, the flippers work, the plunger works and I can hear coins going in when I press 5 but the table looks lifeless, no game start, no lights etc.

So I guess I need a little help here, I feel like I am going round in circles :(


Kind Regards

1) On in all installer from here http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=11573

- get VPX3setup.zip

This gives you 10.3 stable. Consider getting 10.4 beta http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=38450&p=384799

- if you do, well - there may be bugs ... but, those do exists for 10.3 as well ... in the editor there are actually more bugs in 10.3 than in 10.4.

Since you hare here. You are probably looking for Stern/SAM "upgrade". The latest stable is 2.9 I believe.

Unpack over the other files in pinmame folder. Take the sam.vbs and put it into \visual pinball\scripts folder. Run 'setup.exe' ( not the 64 bit one ... if it is included ) press "install".

There exists a beta for SAM as well. http://vpuniverse.com/forums/topic/3241-sambuild30-beta-thread/?do=findComment&comment=37623

There are a few tables out there that require these betas. I recommend you to go with stable releases, and wait for this software to come out of beta.
