Big Box / Pinball FX3 / Windows Batch Files

Hello,

Long time visitor, first time poster. This forum has been a great help to get me started setting up my launchbox/big box (Thank you!) but I seem to be stuck and it's been days I've been searching for answers and have tried everything I found on the internet including this site.

 

I set up some windows batch files to launch my Pinball FX3 directly into their tables. It worked fine but one small issue I am having is that the cmd window pops open in front of the game and stays open. I then either have to manually close the window or change tabs to get back to my game. My question is how can I make the cmd window open either behind the game, minimize after opening or close entirely? Below is an example of the codes I am using for one of the table. Please advise.

 

"Pinball FX3.exe" -offline -class -table_Alien_Isolation

 

 

Edit: The issue is only when using Big Box. I can execute the cmd and the window minimizes when opening through Launchbox and from my desktop.

Unless you have some specific reason, you don't need batch files for this. I set up the steam version as an emulator like this:

If you're not using the steam version, in the "Emulator Application Path" use Pinball FX3.exe and in the command-line use: -offline -class -table_

Then import the tables as rom files.

Thank you so much! That did the trick and was so much easier than my method lol.
