Unit3D Pinball package is provided as a RAR Archive.
This archive contains:
This is our modified version of the Visual Pinmame emulator.
You just need to replace your older vpinmame.dll in your Visual Pinmame installation folder ( if you use to play Visual Pinball software ), and register it using the Visual Pinmame setup utility. Our version of the dll stills compatible with Visual Pinball, so you don't need to switch between the two files, just replace it and both softwares will run fine. For those who are not familiar to Visual Pinball, please first install Visual Pinmame then replace the dll file we provide. Launch the Visual Pinmame setup utility to register the dll correctly. Unit3D Pinball requires Game Roms files to run Recreated Tables. Don't ask us for Game ROMS , our website won't host them.
You can find the needed Game ROMS on the VPForum web site.
Important Note: You must disable the Double Size Option in the Vpinmame default settings form. This option is not compatible with Unit3D Pinball.
In this folder, you can find the main files and sub folders used by the Software:
On our website, we provide Table Files compatible with the application. We package those tables in a .rar archive which contains all the necessary files and folders to run the table excepted, of course, the Game ROMS. You can extract those archives in any folder, but you must preserve the root folder and the folder structure it contains to be sure that the table will run correctly.
Example of the Addams Family Table package:
Unit3d Pinball needs these components to be installed in order to work properly:
You can launch the software using the Unit3D Pinball.exe file in the main folder.A dialog box will open and propose you to open an existing .upt or .fpt table file.( .fpt files not allowed in the pre alpha release). You can also launch directly an .upt table file. For this to work, you must first associate correctly the .upt file type to the Unit3D Pinball.exe program using Windows Program Association procedure.
It is also possible to launch the software using a batch file. The software accepts a table file as first argument. You can add to the CommandLine the parameter /editor to enable the DegugShots and Editing features. If you have multiple configuration files(ie one for desktop and one for cab), you can specify a custom configuration file by adding to the CommandLine the parameter /config followed by the configuration file path .If the file doesn't exists, the default 'config\options.ui.puo' will be used instead. You can name this file as you wish with the extension you like.
Command line examples:
"YOUR DRIVE:\your folder\another folder\Unit3D Pinball.exe" "YOUR DRIVE:\any folder\table folder\BlackKnight2K.upt" /editor
This will launch the bk2k table in editor mode.
"YOUR DRIVE:\your folder\another folder\Unit3D Pinball.exe" "YOUR DRIVE:\any folder\table folder\BlackKnight2K.upt" /editor /config "YOUR DRIVE:\your folder\another folder\cabinet.cfg"
This will launch the bk2k table in editor mode using the specified option file named cabinet.cfg
Beta version of Unit3d Pinball offers you a minimalistic table launcher that will help you launching tables in a more friendly way.
To enable this feature, add the /minimalLauncher parameter to the commandline.Minimal launcher is explained in details here.
