I'm working on adding tables and rotating DMDs on my pinball build. So, I've been in my Tables directory, my Visual Pinball.xml file and a couple Table script files.  That's about it.  All of a sudden, when I open a table in Hyperpin, I'm seeing the Visual Pinball window on the backglass. 

Even after rebooting (with Hyperpin in Start Up) the visual pinball window is front and center once I select any table.

What might I have done, and how can I get this to minimize and not be seen?

Assuming you have multiple monitors for this setup... Do this:

1. Open up VP
2. Make the window as small as possible
3. Move the VP window to the Playfield monitor
4. Close the VP window

That should fix it.

Thanks so much shilmover!   :applaud:

I do have multiple monitors.  While working on my tables, I moved the VP window to the backglass monitor versus the playfield monitor so that I could better see what I was doing.   I did not realize that the placement of the VP window would matter.

Thanks again!

 :cheers:
