Hey All, I've been trying to get the new module for Pinball Arcade in RL to work but it doesn't find the rom files.  Looked in my "tables" folder to see that the files are named things like "TAddamsFamily_Enums.csv"  Is this normal, and does anyone know of a solution to properly get this name format into my database?

Thanks for any help,

R

If you're picking my module, use the Tables.zip (Page 13) uploaded in this topic. It's just a bunch of dummy file to cheat Hyperspin and Rocketlauncher. In the end they won't be used for nothing.

It sounds like you haven't even read my instructions for setting it up in the first post, or jviegas info for his newer module yet. Start there

There are no roms. You don't look in the My Tables folder. The database is already there etc... Just follow the instructions.

Thanks for your reply!  You're right, I didn't realize the first module was so closely related to the updated one.  Following all the instructions, I'm amazed to report that IT WORKS.  I'm so grateful for this, I've been trying to get this to work for a long time so thank you.

I have only one small problem. I've entered all my tables into the "MY TABLES" setting.  However, it appears that at some point it runs out of characters that can be input into the box.  I come about 3 tables short -- it lets me type them in, but it won't save those final characters.

Thanks again!

I'm glad it works, there is a billion hours of work putting the module and instructions together

 

First I've ever heard that. Are you using the first post module or jviegas module? Version 1.50.10 of the game or a newer version? How many tables do you have and which don't fit?

I'm using jviegas module, version 1.59.10 of Pinball Arcade.  I have 81 tables and only the last 3 1/2 won't fit in the My Tables setting.

Thanks again, I can't imagine how long it must have taken to figure this out. :)

Your Welcome.

I'm glad it helped you.

Do you know anything about a character limit in the My_Tables section?

@alnyden rather than put your table list into the My_Tables portion of the module settings, you could change the list itself within the module. It would be the part of the module, towards the top, where it says something like "My_Tables": Adams Family (Williams) etc... you could change that text to match you personal table list. Then in the module Set All_Tables to True which should make it go by the module list that you just edited. If you follow me at all...

Nope, I never had that issue.

@alnyden Are you editing the "My_Tables" using Rocketlauncher or Notepad?

Try to use Notepad.

Can I ask for an updated version for all the tables? I also made a fusion of the fx2 module on the RL forum. Had some problems (timings and keys) with navigating the horrible TPA GUI.
Would like to try this one.

I think he's having trouble using the module setting within RocketLauncher. Not editing the module.

So...

The history...

I've added recently Pinball Arcade system to Hyperspin.

The updated Rocketlauncher module didn't fit the version I got (1.59.5 DX11) with 83 tables.

The module fits old version which the "My Tables" were listed instead of Tabled (columns and rows).

What I did was changing into a mix version between Pinball Fx module and Pinball Arcade.

So let's get to business:

1. Follow the module instructions. nothing changed from previous module.

2. Run Pinbal Arcade without using rocketlauncher or Hyperspin, Enter "Arcade" menu and then change the view for "My Tables" (by default it will be shown as "Alphabetic").

Quit the software normally. Next time, the tables will be shown on "My Tables" view. That's what we want.

3. Copy "Tables" folder to your Pinball Arcade folder (Tables.zip). This are just dummy txt files. I use "Roms Only" option from HyperHQ so I prefer to manage my wheel rables by adding or deleting these files.

4. Update your tables database on Hyperspin and Rocketlauncher  (Pinball Arcade.xml)

5. Copy modified module to your Rokcetlauncher\modules\Pinball Arcade folder (Pinball Arcade.ahk)

6. In order to this modified module work correctly you have to inform how many columns the tables are shown in your screen. I realized that they change on different resolutions. In my case they are shown in 8 columnss so my module option is:

nrcol := 8 ; How many columns are shown in your screen ?

7. Isd file wasn't modified so no changes.

8. This version should work on future releases, all you have to do is update the module, hyperspin and rocketlauncher game list

9. Tested all 83 tables and it worked fine however sometimes my computer take a little bit longer to load a table and the module doesn't do all the procedure. Quit (Esc Key) and start it again and it should work fine.

10. Enjoy !!!

10. Give feedback about how it worked on your computer.

 

Note: Sorry about any english mistakes that you found.

 

Pinball Arcade.xml

Tables.zip

Pinball Arcade.ahk

An updated ahk file to new versions.

Tested on 1.61.4 DX11 version

I did not updated the tables list. I noticed that I was only missing 1 table so I didn't spend time on it.

I modified the module so now works on the 1.64.10.

Just to change to keypress to up and enter, which is faster and works perfect. I had to do because i have and issue with the mouse going to wrong section "login".

But i have some new tables, like "paragon", and it skips that position... i will add the new tables to the xml, and try, it should work.

Hola.

No consigo hacer que funcione la versión 1.64.10. RL ejecuta PinballArcade.exe pero no me lanza ninguna mesa. He hecho todos los pasos arriba indicados. Se queda en la pantalla inicial del logo del juego. Cómo sé si tengo versión steam o no? Cómo modificaste tú el ahk para hacerlo funcionar, serías tan amable de pasarmelo?

Gracias de antemano

Hi.

I can't do it works on the 1.64.10. RL launch PinballArcade.exe and it stays on the initial screen, it doesn't do anything else. How can I know if it's a steam version or not? How can I modified ahk to do it works with 1.64.10?

Thanks

HI -

Thank you for the detailed tutorial.

I ran through it.  Everything seems to installed correctly.  I have not errors or exclamation points anywhere but when i launch Pinball Arcade under the module tab I get this error: Emulator is configured as a virtual emulator and therefore it cannot be launched.  

The crazy part is i just had this working!  Well, i had pinball machine load up through RL.  Then when i started to get the Hyperspin part working i got a lot of different errors.  So like a dope, i deleted to try again ... since then, im stuck here.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Im new to this pinball stuff BUT MAN is this insane!!!! this is ridiculous eye candy in the living room!

Many thanks in advance - going to keep trying here ....

So you're running the Steam version and you're back on version 1.50.10? Not a newer one correct?

And you followed Step #3 in the first post? What happens if you uncheck virtual emulator?

Has this been updated to to use with ver. 1.71.8(I think) the one that has 100 tables?

I'm trying to get it to work with that but I'm unsure of the naming convention. Is it just table name, manufacturer and year?

I need to do this still but I would suspect it’s the same naming convention

This module was working great for me, but when I rotated my monitor to a vertical orientation it no longer works.  I assume this is because the options and buttons are organized differently when pinball arcade is vertical.  Has anyone else gotten it to work this way?  Thanks for any help!

Also, I should have been more clear.  It is going to "Online Play" instead of "Arcade".

I solved it -- I added an additional "Up" command before selecting "Arcade".  In case anyone else is trying to do the same thing. :)

      Please note my knowledge of this system does not run deep but everything here works and plays fine.
      What is it?
      Capcom Play System III or CPS-3 is an arcade system board that was first used by Capcom in 1996 with the arcade game Red Earth. It was the second successor to the CP System arcade hardware, following the CP System II. It would be the last proprietary system board Capcom would produce before moving on to the Dreamcast-based Naomi platform.
      How to emulate in Android (Shield TV)
      Quick and simple way is with the FBA core of RetroArch and matching FBA romset.
      At time of writing current versions are:-
      Core:- FB Alpha v0.2.97.42 (commit 6b7a701)
      FBA:- 0.2.97.42 (9 July 2017)
      Other options are MAME core in RetroArch or MAME4Droid reloaded (0.139mame romset). I believe the CHD files are needed for some games and with MAME4Droid, at least,  I had to "install" the game when it 1st launched in the emulator. That process took about 20-30mins and not all worked. Redearth was one I tested and "installed".
      Games
      JoJo no Kimyouna Bouken: Miraie no Isan (Japan 990913) = (jojoba.zip)
      JoJo's Venture (USA 990108) = (jojo.zip)
      Red Earth (Euro 961121) = (redearth.zip)
      Street Fighter III 2nd Impact: Giant Attack (USA 970930) = (sfiii2.zip)
      Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Fight for the Future (EUR 990608) = (sfiii3.zip)
      Street Fighter III: New Generation (USA 970204) = (sfiii.zip)
       
      Note:-
      I replaced this entry in the official database with the european version as I could not get it to launch in FBA.
      Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Fight for the Future (USA 990608) = (sfiii3u.zip)
      EDIT:- USA version is working with RetroArch core version 0.2.97.44. Make sure you have the correct RomSet version
      Setup Steps...
      1.  Open RetroArch and download the Arcade (FA Alpha) core.
                                     Main Menu -> Online Updater -> Core Updater

      1a. Transfer your games to your prefered location (You only need the six zip files listed in the database and above)

      2. Add the "Capcom Play System III" system to your Hyperspin setup with HyperHQ on a PC and transfer the files/folder to your device or by manually creating all the relevent folders to your device. (Download at bottom of guide)
      3. Add Capcom Play SYstem III to your Main Menu.xml or Main Menu_Android.xml
      4. Add these lines to your Capcom Play System III.ini file found in Hyperspin/Settings/ or Hyperspin/Settings_Android/
      exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture
      romextension=zip
      parameters=cores/fbalpha_libretro_android.so
       
      PLAY SOME STREET FIGHTER .......................
       
      Extra Notes:-
      Under the FB Alpha "Quick Menu -> Options" you can select between different regions. Choosing a different region will give you the different loading screens along with other things I'm not sure about.

      (FYI having trouble with upping some screenshots and the new formatting so please excuse the wierd format)
      Converting 16x9 Themes for Hyperspin Android
      List of theme animation compatibility
      https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1-8Ofa_GrAdnQ22nf7W7QYVeQoKBQxA_-
      (I am in NO way competent with artwork resolutions but my method works and looks good to me)
      Why...
      Because sometimes that theme you really liked just doesn’t display correctly 
      The main reason for theme problems is the use of animation and scripting of the .swf assets in the “theme”.zip
      (It’s best to replace themes that cause Hyperspin to crash out, but you can try to convert them)
       What’s covered...
             1.      Extract PNG assets from swf files
             2.      Reduce HQ artwork to be compatible with Hyperspin
             3.      Further reduce artwork width to allow for Hyperspin 4x3 -> 16x9 stretching
             4.      Recompile your theme
       
      What is Needed:
      Update on resizing tool.
            Fotosizer is now advised against because of the compression/quality loss it causes.
      pPlease use Photoshop or this program recommended by @IceLancer https://sourceforge.net/projects/easyimagesizer/?source=typ_redirect
      A    A  Fotosizer (http://www.fotosizer.com/) batch resize image files
              B.     Flash Decompiler (https://www.free-dec...flash/download/) extract png’s from swf
              C.     Time and Themes
       I have done a little testing for Main Menu themes. This spreadsheet shows what I have tested and its Android compatibility status. The sheet has download section links for all themes I have tried.
       
       
      Let’s get to it... 
       
      So grab a theme zip you want to play with and Unzip it. Any 16x9 Main Menu, Game or System Default theme will do.
       
       
      BakerMan provided me a guide to extracting the PNG’s from SWF but it has since been lost. 
      These are the steps
              1.      Open JPEXS once downloaded and installed from link above
              2.      Click on the “Open” tab and browse to the offending .swf file from your unzipped theme
       
           SCREENSHOT
      3.     
       

       

             3.      Right click on “Images” on the left and click “Export Selection”
      (At this step you may find multiple images. If these images are only parts of one image, say the arms and legs of a character, you will have to lose that image completely from the theme or replace it with another one)
       
      SCREENSHOT2
             4.      Click “ok” to PNG file type then choose a location for the exported images (Default is Desktop. Only export one at a time and  then move the PNG out of the output folder as it overwrites each one if not)
       
       
      SCREENSHOT3
             5.      Now browse to that Output location and you will find your PNG’s in an “images” folder.
       

       
      You are now ready for phase 2 – Resizing the images
      Note, fotosizer does cause a reduction in artwork quality. If your sensitive to this you may want to use another method. (If you know of a better program please comment) I only run a 37' screen and don't mind myself.
      (Resizing Artwork is covered comprehensively by Avar in his tutorials found HERE)
      Open Fotosizer Add the Artwork that was converted to PNG Reduce the images to 68% KEEP MAINTAIN ASPECT RATIO TICKED (this is the best size for the ones I have done)  
              4.       Move the right side settings bar down and select an Output Folder
       

      5   Remove that Artwork from Fotosizer
      6.   Add the newly resized artwork back into Fotosizer
      7.   Reduce the Width to 75% (to allow HS to stretch it back when its loaded)
      8.   UNTICK MAINTAIN ASPECT RATIO
       
             9.   Now add this finished art back into the theme folder and zip it up again
            
             10.       Name the zip file the same as you have it in the “Main Menu.xml” database
       
      Final Thoughts...
       
       
      Now when you try this theme out you may find the artwork has slightly changed location. If so adjust the Artwork positions in the theme.xml file within the theme.zip OR load it into Hypertheme and adjust it as required
       
       
      Hope this helps someone.
