When you exit hyper pin its all rotated back to portrait. It's not difficult to set up properly.

    Also where is your Dmd? You just turned it off? I out mine in lower left by instruction card area.
    Mainly lack of time stops me even from trying to run it all in Win8 and lack of faith in the the Microsoft developers to write code that isn't bloated and that is efficient - the size of the Win8 install says it all. The XP setup took a lot of tweaking over time to get everything run ultra smooth with UVP and everything else, Jukebox configured, etc and I don't want to disturb it. The DMD is in the corner of the screen at the top.

    Do you use UVP/B2S and have Jukebox? I guess you knocked up a simple AHK to do the switching? It would be good to see a video of one of your cabinets in actions - any uploaded already?

    The 'proper' PC version should come soon according to Zen so there shouldn't be a need to create a dual disk setup like I have, which consists of a hard drive with XP which plays VP and FP, and a Windows 8 drive playing Pinball FX2 rotated using the Metro Portrait display settings for the playfield monitor. I use a hard drive power switch to easily boot from one drive or the other.

    I have the flipper feedback 'thump' because my 2 Siemens contractors are connected with an Opti-coupler.

    In the video I have increased the table slope to the maximum 8.5 and have turned off the ball trails. The flippers have better control than as shown in the video - I couldn't play properly because I needed to play from one side due to the way I had the tripod balancing on a table .

    More info on the setup possibilities can be in these threads I posted at Christmas.

    I didn't even know there was a windows 8 version.
    What exactly are you running that from though because I see that the Boba Fett table has the same problem as the Vita version, the damn missle button is always on the screen...

  • Video of Star Wars Pinball FX2 Running in Full-size Virtual Pinball Cabinet

    Here are some videos of two of the three Pinball FX2 Star Wars tables running in my full-size 3-screen virtual pinball cabinet running under Windows 8 in portrait mode.

    Zen have done an excellent job!
