2 likesIntroducing VPDB. With three years in the making I am pleased to introduce to you VPDB. VPDB is a collaboration between developer freezy with sponsorship from Spesoft/GameEx (creator of the PinballX and GameEx front ends). Completely free to its users and contributors for the foreseeable future, VPDB is an innovative new project where people can share their digital pinball table recreations and everything else related to virtual pinball. With this project comes innovation and change. We need your support to make it a success as without users and contributors it is nothing. However, if you cannot give that please at least respect the effort, time and skill that has gone into this project. We have tried to do something pretty cool here out of passion for the digital pinball community, and it's just the beginning: VPDB comes with an open API that allows any application to plug-in easily. The website is just the first example of what's possible. There is more to come! https://vpdb.io (We are still in beta phase but ready for you to come over and use). View full article

2 likesRequired: Bandicam or similar recording program, full version. ST Emulators Virtualdub x264vfw -------------------------------------------------------------------- I was asked to give instructions on how to go about recording Atari ST as I started on the set and finished #-B. It's not the easiest system to record especially if you're new to this but it's doable. Your rig must be capable of recording 60fps raw footage without stuttering or chugging. Recommended Intel i5/i7 build. So if you're on like an older AMD cpu or something similar, you're going to need a faster PC. First of all, you're going to need a recording program like Bandicam. The full version too, as we can't have videos with watermarks. FRAPs will not work for either Steam SSE or Hatari, which are the emulators you'll be using (mostly Hatari), since they use software rendering. You'll need to set Bandicam to record your whole screen then you'll do cropping afterward. I've provided both my Hatari and Steam SSE emulator folders. The only settings you'll need to change will be your controls and maybe some folder paths, otherwise leave the video settings alone unless you have to change the full screen resolution to match your own. Prepare Virtualdub. Open the program, go up to Video->Filters, add Null Transform followed by Resize. Then go up to Video->Compression and set it to x264vfw. Make sure your settings match these: Next you should prepare Bandicam. Set it to Screen Recording mode and make sure your recording settings match these. Change hotkey to whatever you prefer: With all the prep work done, you're ready to record. Make sure Bandicam is in screen recording mode still, you can hide the recording bar too if you like. Now fire up a game. The last title I recorded was BMX Simulator (Europe), so start with Bob Morane - Chevalerie I (France). 1. Record at least 10 or so seconds of the title screen if you can to work with. Feel free to use Warp key shortcut you set in RocketLauncher to skip the long load times. Stop recording. 2. Record again once you're playing to get the gameplay footage, try to get a minute or two of footage to work with. Do your best not to die repeatedly or play horribly lol. 3. You'll now have two gameplay clips. First open your title screen footage in Virtualdub. 4. Go up to Filters screen, highlight Null Transform then click on the Cropping... button on the right size. Crop out all the stuff outside of the game window and the black bars depending on game. 5. Using 7/Home and 1/End on your numbpad, set your beginning and ending trim points on the Vdub timeline. Hit delete to remove what needs removing. 6. Title screen clip should be exactly 8 secondsh. Gameplay exactly 30 seconds. 7. Go up to File->Save as Avi... to encode your videos. 8. Name your title screen clip "Game Title (Region) T" and your gameplay clip "Game Title (Region) G". Remember, 8 seconds for title screen, 30 seconds for gameplay. 9. After doing all the videos you like, upload them to FTP at "/Upload Here/_Video Snap Submissions". Just create a folder with your username, then a folder named Atari ST inside that. Hopefully this tutorial wasn't too hard to follow.
