B2S Backglass Server directB2S Backglass

System files to run 'directB2S' backglasses, usually in combination with Visual Pinball tables.
For installation, version info and change log please click here.
For settings and handling info please click here.
For the download of the "B2S Backglass Designer" to customize already existing or create new directB2S backglasses please click here.
It is possible to install in a clean folder under Visual Pinball e.g. C:\vPinball\VisualPinball\B2SServer. Earlier installations can be cleaned using Nirsofts RegDllview
If you have it already in the Tables folder, you can leave it as before. Decision is yours.
There is NO need to re-register on each update! (as long the files stay in the same location)

What's New in Version 1.4.1 (See full changelog)

  • 1.4.1
  • - Add installation folder to the search path of ScreenRes.txt file.
  • Current search "path":
  • 1. tablename.res
  • 2. Screenres.txt ( or whatever you set in the registry) in the table folder
  • 3. tablename\Screenres.txt ( or whatever you set in the registry)
  • 4. Screenres.txt ( or whatever you set in the registry) in the B2SServer folder.
  • - Add additional setting FormNoFocus complementing FormToFront. When set also FormToFront will stay in front and will ignore mouse key presses.
  • - B2SBackglassServerRegisterApp: Added registration of a .vpx file context menu copying template res files next to the table. Incl. small cmd to copy the file.
  • - B2S_ScreenResIdentifier: Better automated setup proposals
  • - Sort screens left to right for screen assignment

I enjoy it since years! :-)

I have that already 😊 it seems to be a table issue, dozer cv redux works fine but the other dozer version does not. I just have too look further to see what might cause this and look what exactly is different in the tables. Maybe a vp 10.2 table vs 10.4 table script difference.

Ohh, I have this issue..  Does anyone have details on how to configure:


Allow backglass display to be specified as the X coordinate instead of display ID#, to resolve issues on systems that don't keep a consistent display order.


My system seems to not recognize my display 2 yet my x resolution works regardless and my backglass sometimes goes to my DMD.

So instead of display 2 @ 0, I can change things to display 1 @ 1921 to get it on the correct screen temporarily.

How do I use the proportional aspect ratio feature? Can't find it anywhere

Thanks a lot for the update! Before, depending on how quickly/slowly my TVs were turned on, they were assigned a different "id". Now instead of indicating the backglass display id in the config file, I can put the left bound pixel (as an example "@1920" instead of "1"), which is always consistent.

Request: For us desktop users could you add an "Always On Top" option, right now we have to use external tools to make the backglass always on top. Thanks!

this isn't in the all in one installer right 10.5?

Here are details on the proportional aspect ratio...  http://vpuniverse.co...e-aspect-ratio/

I would like to organize my tables and backglasses into folders. I am finding hard to maintain a ScreenRes.txt in the same folder as every table. Here is a change that will look for ScreenRes.TXT in the install folder if it isn't found next to the table. Would this be OK?



#Region "get backglass settings and show backglass"

    Private Sub ReadB2SSettingsFromFile()
            specialFileName = IO.Path.Combine(B2SData.TableFileName & ".res")
            loadSpecialOne = IO.File.Exists(specialFileName)
            specialDirFileName = IO.Path.Combine(B2SData.TableFileName, FileName)
            loadSpecialDirOne = IO.File.Exists(specialDirFileName)
        End Try

''''Change starts here'''''
        'If ScreenRes Not found near table then look in install path
        If Not IO.File.Exists(FileName) Then
            Dim exePath As String = Application.StartupPath()
            FileName = exePath + "/ScreenRes.txt"
        End If
''''Change ends here''''

        If loadSpecialOne OrElse loadSpecialDirOne OrElse IO.File.Exists(FileName) Then

            ' open settings file
            FileOpen(1, If(loadSpecialOne, specialFileName, If(loadSpecialDirOne, specialDirFileName, FileName)), OpenMode.Input)
