About This File

With this tool it's possible to switch tables without the need of removing your VR-headset. 
Now you can stay at your cabinet while playing and switching tables without the need of VR-controls. 
The newest version includes most of the released VR-tables as preview-tables. 
If you want me to add new tables simple leave a comment here.



Version 4 (Unity Tableselection)


Youtube Video: Check out what it looks like!



  • tablearray config via xml and image-files
  • coded in unity/c# for oculus vr OR openvr (32bit windows)
  • starts only once and takes control, when vpx is quitting
  • 0% CPU-usage while playing VPX
  • much faster loading time



  • Extract ZIP in your "Visual Pinball"-folder (home of VPinballX_GL.exe).
    "vpx vr-launcher4.exe" and application-folder "/vrlauncher4" should be directly in this folder.

This image has to be placed in "/vrlauncher4/config/graphics".
The format is compatible to vrlauncher 3.
There is a template file for creating your own images:


"dmd" (optional) if you set dmd to anything, the DMD will not be visible
example: <dmd>0</dmd>

Version 3 (VPX Tableselection)




Autoupdates reactivated!

Since 3.36

DiffPatcher downloads and updates small binary update-files /vrlauncher folder.







This is the directory (ends with "\") where your vr-vpx-tables are stored.


Filter 1-9 
read info/filter


up, down, left, right, start


hold vpx_gl on top
Hold the player (VPinballX_GL.exe) in front focus so you don't loose key control.


Show keyboard codes (numbers) you can use to setup.
You can use Default cabinet-keys too. (read info)

minimize vrlauncher at start

if enabled key-controls are firing pinball-sounds



is a new option to auto toggle "forcedirectB2s" if a table has a *.directb2s-file.


filter clones
if enabled clones will be ignored. you'll have only one table recognized.
if disabled all recognized files will be shown. you can differentiate them by filename info.







Extract the zip into your vpx folder (where VPinballX_GL.exe is located): 










Start vpx-vrlauncher.exe
(the file at vp-root next to VPinballX_GL.exe)



Setup your table-folder.



Save and restart vpx-vrlauncher.exe.









Best results (fast loading speeds, many capturing improvements) with the newest vpvr 10.6 beta of Caligula, DJRobX and Rawnei! 


Default cabinet-keys (configurable in launcher):

LeftFlipperKey: previous table

RightFlipperKey: next table

plunger: start selected table

LeftMagnasave: previous column

RightMagnasave: next column

PlungerKey: load&start table

AddCreditKey: open filter menu (hold key, then toggle with left/right)



If you want the default keys (shown above) leave this at "default" or "reverse" (without quotes).

If you want to setup your own decimal key codes you can get them from vpx registry or with my debugkeys option.

You can also use vpx key constants like:

LeftFlipperKey, RightFlipperKey, LeftMagnasave, RightMagnasave, StartGameKey, AddCreditKey, AddCreditKey2, PlungerKey, LeftTiltKey, RightTiltKey, CenterTiltKey, MechanicalTilt



Since v.3.00 you can setup your own filters and toggle them with a free configurable key (default = AddCreditKey).

Empty filters are disabled. You can use comma-separated values for each filter.

Optional you can name each filter. For this you start with filtername:filter


An Example - If you want to make an 80s filter:

80s: 1980,1981,1982,1983,1984,1985,1986,1987,1988,1989



SelectMode-Key toggles:

1st press: Select favourites ON: Select fav with left/right and confirm with startKey.

2nd press: Save selected table as favourite: Change target-slot with let/right and confirm with startKey.

3rd press: Select favourites OFF


Hint: You can leave the SelectMode-Key empty to disable the new favourites-feature.
