    PinCabView : Pro Pinball & Addiction Pinball & SlamTilt Resurrection (PinCab MOD)

    PinCabView 4.0 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 1.0a ReShade's shader by Aubrel and Ducon2016 (ArcCabView 1.0a with PINBALL options activated)
    - ArcCabView Custom ReShade 4.9.1 dll by Ducon2016 and Aubrel (ReShadeMod32.dll)
    - dgVoodoo2 2.76.1 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 :

















    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!

    ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************
    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"

    The Web actually has three more separate views, each with its own lower backbox. I'm not sure if that helps, but it's a consideration to use that view and crop the grill from the game.

    Yes but no, this game is not very nice compared to the other ones, and using an other view it will be even worse
    The 1st view of this game is by far the best one to work with using this methode and for this game the result is barely acceptable...

    Also this game is crashing very often on my computer and it makes the job very painful when trying to work on it.
    I still managed to make this game running with an "acceptable" view for pincabs, I did a PinCabKey exe patch to use standard controls with, its DMD is captured and we made a nice apron too (Thanks again to eMBee for the last version).
    So for me it's already more than enough for The Web (and to be true, unlike the 3 other ProPinball games, I never liked this one that much)
    So I decided to work on the others ones and to keep TheWeb just like that (nothing is patched in memory with this game and the configuration has to be done by the user).

    For all the 5 other games the needed configuration is forced in memory, the dmd is removed from the table and can be put where you want.

    Looks interesting, looking forward to trying it. Microsoft Defender is reporting the rar is infected by the Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.B!ml virus. I'm assuming it is a false positive but as anyone else scanned the file with their own antivirus?

    Good stuff, I commented over on the VPU site back when this was first posted, before the latest rev. You've also done some attempts at Zen FX3 with cabinet views too, although i never got proper results on the Bally Williams tables.

    It's often better with the classic FX2/FX3 tables that's true but it works good with Williams tables too.
    Using this preset the result with the other tables is nearly always perfect (at least for me) but even if not perfect with the others it still looks better than the original Williams Pinball tables view.

    Here some examples using the preset included in the 2.0/2.1 version (check the readme for more info)

    Left is with the shader and the setting given / right is without (original view).

    Ok I tried and it's not very nice but acceptable... So it's available now 3.0
    Both views are available depending the selected ones in game options :
    - View 1 to 3 => old config with DMD kept on the table (best looking mode)
    - View 4 and more => new config with DMD hidden
    The Web config is now automated too.


    So new version 3.0 available with many improvements and a new "standard coin mode" is now available for the 4 Pro Pinball games

    Sorry if I'm trolling but these are great tables. Surely there's some monetary inspiration to get them on console?

    For my part there is no monetary inspiration at all (no patreon, no paypal, no adverts, no kickstarters,... : nothing!!).
    This mod is free and will remain free. More than that it uses ReShade, dgVoodoo and can't be sold at all (and there isn't any hope to get this on console...)
    The main goal is to be able to play the legit games in virtual pinball cabinet (there is no part of these games nor any crack included in this patch and none of their files will be changed).



    Edit : Updated to 3.1 with ratio locked to 16:9

    New version 3.2 available

    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)


    Enjoy

    oh man, now I'm going to have to dig through my old game CD's to find Addiction pinball. Between these and the recent JP Salas' Space Cadet VPX release, its the best of 90's windows pinball.

    ohhhh Now I remember the PC version of Pinball Dreams as having some soso physics compared to the Amiga version. But I don't recall a "deluxe" version? Anyone know if they are one and the same?

    At any rate, this is pretty fantastic add-on, thanks!

    Thanks, the "Deluxe" versions are available from GOG (as a "Gold Pack" at this time) : https://www.gog.com


    I just updated the 1st post : PinCabView 3.3 is now available (normal version for 3D view games)

    It now supports SlamTilt Resurrection (2D and full 3D views)

    Here how the 2 tables of this game look in 3D mode :




    And in 2D mode :





    PS: A new version of PinCabView2D should follow soon with new support for the 4 tables of the standard version of SlamTilt (1997)
