No image in Backglass or DMD screen

Postby sc204 » Wed Jul 13, 2016 12:12 pm

Need some help with my cab. I have 3 monitors mid to high end I5 computer. No issues with anything Visual pinball.
When I run Timeshock with 2 or 3 monitors enabled in the startup options I get the windows for the backglass and DMD to show up but they are blank (black). They also often will not shut down when exiting Timeshock, or remember their placed positions.
I have tried diferent resolutions and graphic settings with no change.

I can run it on my home PC and get the other windows to show as they are supposed to.
Any thoughts?

This would lead me to reinstall the game as it seems corrupt or may be a graphics card setting??

I did delete and reinstall the game so that wasn't it. Any idea of which graphic card settings might do this? I have an Nvidea GTX 750 TI.
Thanks I will play around with it.

I tried matching the settings from the nvidea control panel on my PC. Slightly lower model card but still no luck. Other screens work on the PC.

I have the same problem here. Did anyone find a solution for that? I did several time a new instalaltion of PP, clean the registry but no luck.
2 Black windows, it does not matter if the screens are on the main or on one of the other monitors. Really strange.
Also when i close the mail window, the DMD and Backglass will stay, need to kill them manually.
I use a Win 7 pro i7, nvidia titanium 650, vpinball and fpinball works great with 3 Monitors.
Any sugestion would be great, thanx.

Just a wild guess:
You guys have windows aero disabled?
If so enable it and try again.

Hi mpad, yes i had aero disabled. Now i enabled it, but no luck. Same as before. Black DMD, Black Backglass. Strange is when i try to close the pin app, the two screens are not closing. Seems to be a communication Problem, Pro Pinball app can not find this windows. Any other guess what i can try? Thank you all in advance.

This may be totally not the same issue as above...but I kept loading up the game and had no dmd or backglass image, only a blank screen. I tried everything and couldn't understand where the screens where. Then I accidentally minimised the main playfield and the dmd and backglass where there underneath all along. It was just then a case of moving them where I needed.

May not be the same issue, but On the off chance it is...

I ended up upgrading to Win 10 which worked and seems OK so far for the rest of the pinball software

Thank you. There must be another solution for that, but i dint figure it out until today. Are others out there running it on Win 7?
