Future Pinball controls on my PC Arcade not working

BlueBalls

Pinball Wizard
Hello to everyone. I am using Future Pinball on my Hyperspin Arcade Machine (Windows 7). I am unable to play many of the tables.
They all load up fine. It's the controls that do not work. Left flipper, right flipper, adding credits - etc... I've gone into the Future Pinball app itself to reconfigure my arcade machine controls but I get the same result. Nothing seems to work. Everything used to work fine until now.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

It would help if you posted the version numbers. Mainly interested if it is a new version or and old one.

Was Creature from the Black Lagoon version 2.3?

Do you have BAM installed?

This has me a bit stumped. If the versions that don't work are new, I would say you need a new version of BAM.

Try playing the tables that don't work without any front end program.

I did have BAM installed originally but then removed it to see if that would help solve my problem. It didn't.
I also played a few games without the front-end program. Same result. Did not work.

Tried reconfiguring the controls directly in the Future Pinball app. No change.

Here are the games with the correct versions.

Working Tables:
Stern's Star Trek - ultimate edition 1.05
Back To The Future - ultimate 3.0 mod
Creature From The Black Lagoon - 1.2
Elvis - 1.1
Jurassic Park - Ultra Edition 1.05
Jaws - ultimate edition 1.05
Kiss - ultimate edition 1.02


Non-Working Tables:
A Nightmare on Elm Street - ultimate edition 1.06
Superman - ultimate edition 1.04
Gogar - ultimate edition 1.04
Indiana Jones - ultimate edition
Playboy xse - mod 2.6
Transformers - 2.0 rapid loader
The Six Million Dollar Man - ultra edition 1.02

I don't know what the cause is. I looked up the age of some of the tables. Both lists have old and newer tables. Some newer tables require BAM to play them but Transformers is pretty old and does not work. You might still check to see that you have BAM version v.1.5-345 installed. You can play the table, open the BAM menu by pressing the Q key and look and the bottom right screen to see the version.

All that I can suggest is you look through my guide and make sure you followed all the steps. Critical steps in the basic guide are flagged with "Hot!" before the step number that are frequent sources of problems for others:
