THIS MOD IS FOR VPX DESKTOP USERS ONLY, CABINET USERS CAN DOWNLOAD THE ORIGINAL TABLE.

I first would like to thank Dozer316 for giving me permission to make this dB2SDT mod, and permission to showcase his dB2S backglasses. I would also like to thank him for making a great table and dB2S backglass!! I also would like to thank everyone who contributed to this table including JPSalas, Cyberpez, ICPJuggla, and Hauntfreaks!!
They put in alot of time and work on the original table, and it is appreciated!! So if you like this mod, I would encourage you to thank the original author of the table, as I have only made a few changes!
Check Original Table download page for more important info.

DB2S BACKGLASS by Dozer316..

Each dB2SDT Mod will have ColorDMD coded into script.
They also will have Instructions on left side of table and Logo.

THE METHOD I AM USING TO CONVERT THESE DESKTOP VERSION TABLES TO BE ABLE TO USE AND HAVE ON SAME SCREEN A WORKING TABLE AND WORKING DB2S BACKGLASS IS A METHOD I LEARNED FROM KAAN, SO I WANT TO THANK HIM VERY MUCH.
THIS METHOD DOESN'T WORK WITH THE NEW CONTROLLER METHOD, SO THIS TABLE USES THE OLD CONTROLLER METHOD.

I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THE BACKGLASS AND TABLE AUTHORS WHO HAVE GIVEN ME PERMISSION TO MAKE THESE dB2S BACKGLASS MODS, SO I CAN SHOWCASE THERE MASTERPIECES IN THIS FORMAT.

I also would like to thank Steve "Slydog43" for which these VPX mods would not be possible!!

YOU WILL NEED THE dB2S BACKGLASS PROGRAM INSTALLED FOR THIS TABLE TO WORK PROPERLY.
I HAVE INCLUDED B2S Backglass Server 1.3.0.2 WITH DOWNLOAD AND INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO INSTALL IF NEEDED.

YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE "Disable B2S" UNCHECKED IN PREFERENCES..KEYS MENU, AS MOST VPX DESKTOP TABLE USERS WILL HAVE THIS CHECKMARKED.

YOU WILL NEED TO KEEP THESE 4 ITEMS IN SAME FOLDER FOR THESE TABLES TO WORK PROPERLY.

SCREENRES.TXT
B2S.EXE
PINBALL TABLE.VPX
BACKGLASS.DB2S

SIMPLY START TABLE AS YOU WOULD ANY OTHER TABLE. THE DB2S BACKGLASS WILL AUTOMATICALLY STAY ON SCREEN.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE A DIFFERENT BACKGLASS, SIMPLY NAME NEW BACKGLASS SAME AS TABLE NAME AND PUT IN SAME FOLDER AS TABLE.
IF YOU USE 3 SCREEN BACKGLASSES THAT HAVE DMD, YOU CAN RIGHT CLICK ON A RUNNING BACKGLASS AND CHANGE IT TO HIDE GRILL, AS THESE 3 SCREEN VERSIONS WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY WITH THIS METHOD. ALSO ANY DB2S FILES THAT ARE REALLY LARGE WONT WORK WITH THIS METHOD AS IT TAKES TOO LONG FOR THE BACKGLASS TO LOAD.

IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH FLIPPERS STICKING, TRY RESTARTING TABLE AS THIS IS USUALLY DUE TO FIRST TIME PLAYING TABLE ON SYSTEM.

NOW YOU CAN EXPERIENCE THE FULL BACKGLASS IN ACTION, AS SEEN BY CABINET USERS, ON A DESKTOP VERSION TABLE!!!

All pics, trademarks, Logos and sounds belong to their respectful owners. This table is for personal home, and non-commercial use only. This table should be used for educational purposes only..

HOPE YOU ENJOY, AND REMEMBER TO THANK THE ORIGINAL AUTHORS OF THESE TABLES AND BACKGLASSES!!

It is not really a full color DMD. It just added a green one. Plus there is lag on the flippers for some reason. Also, by using your custom B2S.exe server and the 4 other files I have messed up countless other games that used my original backglass server files that worked perfectly! Thanks a lot! 

AVOID THIS TABLE AT ALL COSTS!

Response from the author:

Right at the top of the page it says this...

THIS MOD IS FOR VPX DESKTOP USERS ONLY, CABINET USERS CAN DOWNLOAD THE ORIGINAL TABLE.

 

I also never claimed this was a FULL COLOR DMD.

Here is what it says on page...

Each dB2SDT Mod will have ColorDMD coded into script.

 

If you already had the b2s backglass server installed, why would you install an older version from 7 years ago?

I made this mod 7 years ago, back when this was the only way to let Desktop users have a working backglass on same screen as the table.

You should be able to reinstall b2s server program easily.

(Just copy over old version, and run the B2SBackglassServerRegisterApp.exe)

 

Thanks for the review!

Have a great day!
