    Hello there,

    If that window had an option like 'don't show this message again' would that be better, so it wouldn't come up all the time?

    Or simply try going into Steam, then use the drop-down menu Steam >> Go Offline... and choose Restart in Offline Mode. Check to see you can now launch the game without it crashing.

    already done too, but no change, at each new start of the pincab, with the automatic connection to the steam I have this message that appears even at offline start

    I second this, the no internet connection can't access leaderboards NAG screen is annoying. A check box "Don't Remind Me Again" would be awesome in the next release.

    Many of us do not play networked or want a constant internet connection to the cab. You can disable the steam offline NAG screen by doing this go to:



    Steam\config

    loginusers.vdf

    open the file using text editor.

    look for your profile and change "wantsofflinemode" to 1 and "skipofflinemodewarning" to 1

    make the file read only in the properties of the file so future updates won't override it.

    The above works perfect for preventing steam from nagging you. It works for Pro Pinball Ultra: Timeshock as well.

    I also would like to be able to disable the nag screen. What good is a "cabinet mode" if the UI still requires massive use of a keyboard?

    (e.g. Must enter names for high score using keyboard, no old "flipper initials method. must cancel out of leaderboard nag).

    Also it would be nice to assign multiple functions for a single key. For example. If I assign Enter to my launch button on my cab, then when something like magnasave in han solo or firing lasers in video mode in starfighter assault. I have to physically remove my hand from the flipper buttons.

    I should be able to assign Enter AND right ctrl to 'Launch ball'. That way, in video modes I can use my magnasave button to fire or magnasave, and use the launch button when I want to launch a ball.

    Yes please do. I echo the same passion to get this function added. The games look killer in a cabinet vs. desktop, streamlining the cab support will entice more cab builders to add PBFX3 to their aresenal.

    Integration of the software is huge reason some emulators get left off.

    Thanks so much for considering this upgrade.
