Trouble installing HyperPin


Recommended Posts

I am new to this and I have a quad core machine running Windows 7 64 bit. I downloaded Hyperpin but when Cannot get the file to launch and install after it is downloaded. Is there another program that needs to be used to install this?:banghead:

Yes it came through as a zipped file. HyperPin_v1.0. I then extracted the file I could not find the exe setup file to start the installation. In the extracted file there are 3 folders (databases, media, settings) The other files are fplaunch, fp launch.ahk, fplaunch4-7.ahx, fplaunch4-7, hglass, hyperpin, and hyperpin-help-file

Exe                 = VPinball.exe  RENAME YOUR VISUAL PINBALL EXE TO MATCH THIS DO NOT RENAME THIS TO VPinballXXX.exe you will get errors!!



go here -- > C:\Hyperpin\Databases

you will find two sub folders

Future Pinball

Visual Pinball

in this folders you will find Future Pinball.XML, Visual Pinball.XML

this XML files contain all the games that will be displayed as you scroll through Hyperpin.

THE XMLS ARE OLD AS HELL!!!!, they need to be updated. More importantly they need to be updated to match the tables YOU HAVE!!!.

if the names don't match then Hyperpin will not load the table NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.

XML format




<description>Game tittle (Mannuacture Year)</description> (NAME OF YOUR MEDIA wheel, videos, flyers ect)



<type>Type of Pinball</type> (type of Pinball Electrical Mechanical = EM Solid State = SS)


this is an example of one of my games. The Table and media tittles do not need to match. I named my table the same as the media to avoid confusion.



<game name="300 (Gottlieb 1975)">

<description>300 (Gottlieb 1975)</description>





when all that is done run Hyperpin by launching
