PinCabView 4.3 by Aubrel

 

This patch is free and should remain free.
Not for commercial uses!!

 

I'm happy to release this patch! It will transforme completely some old PC pinball games and make them alive again in virtual pinball cabinets.
The main goal is to get a pincab camera view with exported DMD and backglass for these Pinball games:
 - Pro Pinball : The Web (1995 - 1.50p - CD)
 - Pro Pinball : Timeshock! (1997 - 1.07 / 1.20 - CD/GOG)
 - Pro Pinball : Big Race USA (1998 - 1.18 / 1.19 / 1.20b - CD/GOG)
 - Pro Pinball : Fantastic Journey (1999 - 1.07 / 1.20b - CD/GOG)
 - Addiction Pinball : Worms Pinball (1998 - CD / Steam)
 - Addiction Pinball : World Rally Fever (1998 - CD)
 - SlamTilt Resurrection : Demon (1999 - CD)
 - SlamTilt Resurrection : Pirate (1999 - CD)

These games are for now the only ones to be used with this Launcher.

 

The pack contains :
- PinCabView Launcher by Aubrel
- PinCabView 2.6 ReShade's shader by Aubrel and Ducon2016 (ArcCabView 2.6 with PINBALL options activated)
- ArcCabView Custom ReShade 4.9.1 dll by Ducon2016 and Aubrel (ReShadeMod32.dll)
- dgVoodoo2 2.78.2 dll (ddraw.dll)
- dinputto8 by Elisha Riedlinger used for AddictionPinball games
- OggWinmm.dll by Maximilien Noal used for GOG version of Timeshock

 

These Pinball games will be all rotated to portrait mode and will run in your main screen desktop resolution with a Cabinet View.
If you have more than 1 screen, the backglass and the DMD should exported to the others screens.
You can launch your games with your main screen set in landscape or portrait mode: the result should be the very same.
This patch doesn't contain any files of these games and won't change them at all (it could be reversed by just removing its files)

 

As a bonus :
-The 1600x1200 resolution should be unlocked, working and used by default for BigRaceUSA, FantasticJourney, Timeshock, Demon and Pirate.
-All the Timeshock options should be always unlocked in the menu operator.
-The BGM of the GOG version of Timeshock should be mostly fixed (still a few bugs but really improved).
-A standard "coin" mode is now available for the 4 Pro Pinball games (activated by defaut, your clasic game save will be preserved and used when the option is disabled)
-An improved desktop mode is available too with multi screens support too.
-Inputs are improved and standardized, game configuration is set at best.

If you are using standard VPX keyboard keys, some patches are activated by default to bring you native full support with the default game layouts.

 

Here how it looks now from 2.0 version :

And in Action :

 

 

 

How to use :
- Extract the full archive in your game directory (same directory as your main game exe). Your game exe name should be the original one (not renamed).
- For the supported games you have to use the launcher "PinCabViewLauncher.exe" included to launch your game
- If needed set PinCabView.ini "PinCabView" and "PinCabView_ADV" options as explain above depending on your configuration
- That's all, it should work :dblthumb:

 

******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Side notes :
- DirectX11 hardware is recommanded (DirectX10 should be working but it won't work on Windows XP or with an old DirectX9 graphic card)
- To play Worms Pinball table using Addiction Pinball game, you have to send the command "WP" or "Worms" to the launcher at start (both games are not supported in the same time when not in desktop mode).
- Quick launch (games start directly) is now always activated when not launched in desktop mode.
- The quick launch won't be activated for the 1st start (BigRaceUSA,FantasticJourney,Timeshock). But it will be used after if the game has been properly closed at least one time.
- Desktop users can send "-q" command to the launcher to start the games directly too (not 1st start for the 3 games listed above)
- With SlamTilt Resurrection, Demon table in 3D view is launched by default. You can send "Pirate" to the launcher to launch directly Pirate table instead ( you can also send the command "2D" if you want the 2D view).
- SlamTilt Resurrection's 3rd view (scrolling 3D) is not supported.
- The Windows DPI-Scale setting for high resolutions should be the same for all your screens.
- In any case the playfield will be displayed in your main screen. It won't work if you set your backglass as main screen.
- Nudge visual feedback is broken with this patch (graphic glitches) and so it has been disabled for all 8 games.
- The launcher won't work with Timeshock Ultra Edition nor any other games than the 8 supported ones

 

PinCabKeys :
- "1" or "F1" => "Start" (repeat to get multi-players)
- "1" => "Yes" (Addiction Pinball games)
- "2" => "Esc"
- "5" => "Coin" (Pro Pinball games with PPCoinMOD)
- "5" => "No" (Addiction Pinball games)
- "Shift"(s) => "Flippers"
- "Shift"(s) => "Left"/"Right"
- "Ctrl"(s) => "Table Select" (SlamTilt Resurrection at table selection screen)
- "Ctrl"(s) => "Magna-Save"
- "Ctrl"(s) => "Up"/"Down"
- "Ctrl"(s) => "View select" (SlamTilt Resurrection at view selection screen)
- "z" or "LAlt" => "Left Nudge"
- "Space" => "Front Nudge"
- "/" or "RAlt" => "Right Nudge"

I hope I will manage to get it working the same way

try converting the CD's to ISO and then mount the ISO on the cab

 

or depending on how the program is made, you might just copy the cd contents to a flash drive

this is the best I can get from this game...

Not very nice and needs some special files to work...

The GOG versions are working without the CD, for the standard CD version, yes a copy can be mounted to a virtual cd drive to play or there are some no-cd patches availables...

 

 

For the rest I found again a few small issues in the actual patch and so I will update soon to fix them :)

Can You make a mod with normal view with 1080p resolution or 1600x1200?

On my laptop FJ and BRUSA only plays on 1280x1024, 1600x1200 option is grey.

And here is a new video I just made to show the result in action in a pincab :

Updated to new 3.2 version.

 

This new version features some big changes in the shader (I hope nothing will be broken...)

Now the DMD can be displayed everywhere even over the backglass if you have a 16:9 one.

The POV is improved with better perspective (the ball will be less ovale and the proportions will be better)

it can be set as you want (TablePOV_factor) 0.25 is set as default for the 6 pinball games (for me it's good but you can change in ReSahde's UI with home key).

 

Here a comparaison with and without the new POV setting

 

New  (TablePOV_factor is set at default 0.25)     /      Old  (TablePOV_factor disabled at 0.00)

WOW! You made my dream come true. I´m working on my Cab since 2014 and BRUSA is on the the top of my wish list to play on it.

 

Now you only have to integrate a Pinscape-Support in your PinCapView :D

Excellent job!! I downloaded the games from GOG and it worked perfectly. Could you indicate where I can download THE WEB? Would it be possible for you to provide your configuration for pinball x?

Good!  :)

I fear The Web isn't available for purchase anywhere...

But this game isn't as nice as the 3 other ProPinball games and the result with PinCabView isn't as good neither... (lower resolution, lower color number, no really matching view...)

For this one the VPX version can be a better choice.

 

If ever the GOG's "Pinball Gold Pack" (including Pinball Dreams/Dreams2/Fantasies/Mania/Illusions) is supported by PinCabView2D and plays very nice :tup:

 

For PinballX or any other Frontends, just put the launcher exe instead of the game exe and it will work (nothing else to do, these 3 ProPinball games need to be closed correctly at least one time to save their configurations and after that the table will be launched directly next times)
