About This File
Pirates of the Caribbean (Stern 2006) Alternate Backglass Video + Topper and Wheel Images Kit 1.1
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A B2S / DIRECTB2S BACKGLASS FILE!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
This special VIDEO backglass was made specifically for Siggi's Pirates of the Caribbean VPX table mod.
He (Siggi) did an amazing job on this graphics mod (a serious improvement over the original) and I decided to do something special for him and fellow cab owners.
The original tables backglass was a single fluorescent light that just illuminated the backglass translite. What I wanted to do with this VIDEO backglass was not possible with a b2s file (rain and lightning) without either a huge file size or the risk of slowing down the tables gameplay.
That's why I opted to make a 1920x1080 HD VIDEO version that continuously loops, instead.
I used an iconic image / scene that was recreated from the original Disneyland ride and was also used for the advanced movie poster for the 1st movie.
Topper Images, Wheels, and Table Audio is included as well.
Table Audio is a thunderstorm and rain audio track and does not include any copyrighted music.

HOW TO USE VIA PINBALLX :
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
1.) Make sure you name / rename the VPX table a completely different name than any other version of the table you may have. So instead of naming the table Pirates of the Caribbean (Stern 2006).vpx - name the table POTC (Stern 2006).vpx. This will prevent VPX from trying to "match" the b2s file to the table when it loads. You should NOT rename any pirates b2s to that file name. It should load without any backglass present because there is no backglass named that special name.
2.) Load PinballX's game manager and select "Add New" table. Use the manager to add the POTC (Stern 2006) table as the table name. You can set the Description to whatever you want ... Using the pulldown menu, and select Backglass - and load the backglass .MP4 file. Load the other stuff if you want at this time, i.e.: Table Audio, Wheel Image, Topper, etc.
3.) IMPORTANT: Directly under the Table name and Description for this table in PinballX, there is a row of check boxes. Make sure "Hide Backglass" is UNCHECKED. This will keep the backglass video running when load the table through PinballX and keep it on the screen looping while you are playing the table.
4.) Load PinballX, scroll through to this particular table, and go ahead and load it ... and go PLAY pinball!
Similar styled front ends can use "basically" the same process.
