Pinball FX2 with Launchbox/Big Box

Recommended Posts

 I hope that you can assist or perhaps point me in the right direction. I'm looking to set up Pinball FX2 within lunchbox.  I kind of feel like it's a dead issue.   Many have attempted but ultimately scrap the idea.

 Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.  Currently I have the new Pinball platform created, I have to pointing to the Pinball FX2 exe file. I manually imported each table.  However I can't seem to figure out how to open tables individually. 

As of now when I select a table from within Launchbox ,the Pinball FX exe opens but doesn't open the individual table.

Do you know of any command lines to accomplish this? Or am I simply overthinking and overlooking something?

If i remember I had that same problem..I had to get a latter version of FX2 that launched individual tables.

Make sure the "Use file name only without extension" box is checked in the Emulator Details tab of the Edit Emulator window for your Pinball FX "emulator".

No other command line parameters or anything needed.

i have a code, found something which was used for FX2. just a pain as you need to go into each game in launchbox to change the settings. Seems to be working now

And there goes Lordmonkus again with the answer!

I setup up PopCap, and Pinball in one night, mostly by referring to posts  nearly a year old now.

Thanks for being such an asset to the LaunchBox community!

From my experience it all depends on which version of Pinball FX you are using, some support command line loading of tables and some don't.

Its probably been answered above, but with FX2 you need a cabinet code from the devs to load specific tables. Then just import the .pbx tables as roms setting the fx2.exe as the emulator.

Skip to 2;40 Sec   Follow step by step but use the below commandline
README: TL;DR= /open "<path to your pinball ROM>" /play /exit  
 
Thanks Raindog
 
When editing the emulator as soon above by Deejus679 make sure it is checked
