About This File

B2S ScreenResIdentifier can be used to help setup your B2S Screen Resolutions and screen setup.


What Stefan Wuehr ('Herweh') started in 2012 continues here.


Full documentation is available in the Wiki at https://github.com/vpinball/b2s-backglass/wiki


This is a separate download, but is also part of the B2S Server, if you have already you can ignore downloading this.

Simple to use. Double click the B2S_ScreenResIdentifier.exe to edit ScreenRes.txt or "drop" any TableName.res file on the B2S_ScreenResIdentifier.exe to edit it.


Move screens around as indicated on each window and once happy click save and a ScreenRes.txt for TableName.res file is created/updated in the same location.

B2S ScreenResIdentifier reads out the current resolution and scaling of your screen and in case your scaling isn't set to 100% it will turn red. (see screenshot)


The newer versions of B2S Server supports comment lines in the ScreenRes files. Lines starting with "#" is ignored when reading the ScreenRes.txt or TableName.res files.


Now possible to do like this:

   # Playfield Screen resolution width/height
   # Backglass Screen resolution width/height


If any of your tools do not support them you can ask friendly if someone can update them (PinballX is already updated) or use B2S_ScreenResIdentifier.exe to save without comments (using the checkbox).

What's New in Version 2.1.0   See changelog


2.1.0 b2s_screenresidentifier, b2sbackglassserverexe & B2SWindowPunch is now high DPI aware. It means it should be compatible with scaling factors other than 100%. The settings forms may not be the most beautiful, but it works!

2.0.1 The "BackglassMonitorType" can be controlled through b2s_screenresidentifier. (##, =## or @##)

2.0.0 B2S_ScreenResIdentifier can be started from the B2S settings window, and the settings window is hidden while editing the ScreenRes file.

          The B2S_ScreenResIdentifier can now save the filename it received when starting, or save the global name. (if started with a tablename.res file)

1.4.1 Better automated setup proposals
