Visual Pinball VR-launcher

This is a loader for VPinballX_GL.EXE. With the included vpx-vrlauncher.exe and vpx-vrlauncher.vpx it's now possible to switch tables with plunger and flipper keys. Now you can stay at your cabinet playing and switching tables without the need of VR-controls. If you exit a table, the table-selection will be shown again.

Best results (fast loading speeds, many capturing improvements) with the newest vpvr 10.6 beta of Rob Ross and Ronnie Viklund! You can find it at vpforums and at our VR Facebook group.

Need more tables? Easy: Since version 2.4 you can activate the autoupdate feature and you will get the artwork of all new releases automatically.

Used cabinet-keys version 2 (configurable in launcher):

If you want the default keys (magnasave,flipperkeys and plunger) leave this at "default" or "reverse" (without quotes). If you want to setup your own decimal key codes you can get them from vpx registry or with my debugkeys option. You can also use vpx key constants like "LeftFlipperKey", "PlungerKey" or "RightMagnaSave".

Thanks to senseless, arvid and rawd for their support! Thanks to the community for making vpx a great VR experience! If you want to use parts of my code - use them without approval. :)

Installation / Setup

Extract the files of the zip with the included directory structure in your Visual Pinball directory.

  1. Start vpx-vrlauncher.exe
  2. Enter your VR-tables folder in the application. Click "set tablepath".
  3. Restart vpx-vrlauncher.

From now on you only need to start vpx-vrlauncher.exe.

In the subdir /vrlauncher is an exe (courgette infos:https://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/software-updates-courgette) for including the downloaded patches to the vrlauncher.vpx.

These are the files you need next to your vpinballx_gl.exe:

If you want autoupdate working you should NOT touch these files.

Only the original vpx-vrlauncher.vpx can be patched bitwise. Of course you still can manipulate this vpx, but without my updates.
