Ilustrated FutureDMD Templates for Dummies
-How to create simple custom DMD's to add to existing games in 5 minutes or less.
-this tutorial will also show how to set dmd priority
and how to make Dmd invisible with togglehud
key scripting

Firstly, I would like to acknowledge Chris Leathly author of the amazing Future Pinball, Macro/Gauntletlover for making FutureDMD possible for 3rd monitor DMD's, Ravarcade for the amazing Bam Mod and all the table creators and artists that make this hobby possible.


In this tutorial, we're cookin' up some FutureDMD templates or "Recipes"
In the spirit of experimentation, this tutorial is designed such that each template will work independently.
But for the whole experience, try them all. Enjoy!

Sorry for the cheesy cooking metaphor. Let's go!

This tutorial includes the following templates:
A. Current Player DMD

Before we get started, some suggestions:
1. The first time you might want to try this on a "new table" in Future Pinball, to experiment and see how you like it
2. If you are modding an existing table, at least the first couple times, remember to "save as" a different name in case your creation blows up :)
3. Don't ask questions. Just suspend your disbelief and copy and paste as directed and see what happens.

Disclaimer:
This is in no way a criticism about the state of existing tables, but rather is just to provide individual users a way to optimize tables for their own systems and preference and especially to use 3rd monitor with FutureDMD. I greatly appreciate all the existing amazing tables and the work done !


The following should provide a "cookie cutter" approach and take < 5 minutes to accomplish.

Let's get started
1.Go to table editor and select "translite"

2.Select Displays at bottom and then select Hud DMD

3.Name DMD what you want . If you want "a copy and paste" solution, use the same as this tutorial .
