  2. Dazz -- Thanks for bringing your pin to TPF. Got a few games in on it over the weekend. Met another VPU member while I was there. His game was near VPCabs area. All I remember from his Username was "97". Would like to thank him for spending time with me answering questions, and bringing his cab to the show. Had an epic game of Diner on his cab. Cheers,

Well, for your request is one Set 1 (all soldered and ready to use) one 5V DC (5A, 25Watt) Power Supply (or use your PC 5V, when your PC PS has enough Power) one RGB DMD LED P2.5 Display (P2.5 is the pitch and means 2.5mm distance between each LED from center to center) for a same size DMD as in a real Pinball machine one micro USB cable (for DATA from PinMame to DMD Controller) one mini USB for FW Updates on the Controller. may be one Frame to mount the DMD in your cab (or build your own stuff). Of course, one license from www.pin2dmd.com I am really sorry that I don't sell the stuff as a complete package.

    Excuse my ignorance, but I am still not sure what to buy. I am currently using a monitor as a DMD on my cabinet. I am looking for a complete solution to replace my monitor with a DMD display that will not kill the budget. I see references to controllers, shields etc., but that is all French to me. I require a colour DMD and a way to hook it up to my PC for Visual Pinball X, Future Pinball and Pinball FX2. Can someone off me some advice and possibly a photo of a complete all-in-one kit that does not require soldering etc? Thanks.

    I try to forget nobody...
  7. Fantastic artwork, I love it. I'm about to order a virtual pinball machine and I I live in Stockholm, Sweden. Are you willing to share it with me?
  8. Very nice design. Where can I download it from?
  9. I need it too!
  10. Try to delete or rename the nvram file - see if that changes things.

    Yaaaaay
  12. http://vpinball.com/forums/topic/pin2dmd-with-ccc-proc-vpx-how-i-got-it-working-in-pbx-2/ Made this a while ago - some of the text has changed so READ it as well as looking at the photos! The same works on PinDMD3 as well - have used the same method on Pin2DMD and PinDMD3 - works fine on both.
  13. Hello! I'm having an odd issue that I can't seem to figure out. All of a sudden the left flipper of my LOTR table shoots into the up position when I hit start on the table. It's the only table out of my collection that seems to be doing this. I tried it with all my LOTR vpx versions and it seems to be happening with all of them. When I hit "END" to go into the factory settings the cursor moves rapidly to the left on it's own as if the button is being held down. Any thoughts? I haven't changed any table settings as far as I know-- and the table was working last week perfectly.

  15. Thanks @lucky1 - I have re-downloaded the package, and redone the rom.. My Pin2DMD is now v2.38 so I am going to try it in the next hour and will report back later. Okay - I have tried both 'roms' with the normal and modified pin2dmd.pal file and the modded file does not look 'right' in the real game. Think it is time to learn how to use Pinball Browser/Pin2dmd editor to make my own.
  16. Suggest a virus check .. I dont recall ever seeing / hearing about b2s exes having to connect to the internet. They are not that "new" :-)
  17. Family guy uses just one palette and that is why it should work also on a real pinball machine. Almost all other machines use side-channel and are bound to the serial of the machine. Uploading the modified FGY ROM to the machine and copying the palette file to SD should do the job.

  21. Yep! That was the issue. Thanks for the reply lucky1!
  22. Okay - I have just tried putting the new palette file on my SD card for my pin2dmd, and I reloaded the new 'coloured' BIN file within the game. It all loaded okay BUT none of the colours looking right (ie the same as in VPX). The new palette is loading as the colour bar on loadup with the PIN2DMD logo is showing different shades across the top. However whilst in certain modes of the game it does not look like my VP game. At the moment I have v2.33 software in my PIN2DMD - can this cause the issue? I have the latest in my visual pin (v2.38). EDIT - v2.38 firmware installed - will report back... But the Pin2DMD 'start up' page seems to have no BLUE colour in any of the 16 palettes...
  23. I have had a pin2dmd in my 'real' family guy pinball for a while, and from its 'out of the box' palette the colours look pretty good! On my Visual Pinball I have patched the ROM and am running the PROPER colourised display that @lucky1 kindly posted. Now I wish to install this software into my proper pinball. I know I will have to take the file from the 'altcolor' folder and put that on my SD card that is in the real pinball. But how do I get the 'ROM' into the game? Do I put the modified one onto a USB stick and update it via the machines CPU board or do I have to install it somehow via Pinball browser software? or is there more to it than that. Has anyone done a tutorial yet for ROMS that have already been patched and used in VP to be put in SAM Stern games. On some threads I looked at it seems I need a special file.... Again - I am grateful for any help given to me.... and if required I would post a step by step tutorial once I have done it myself. All the best.
  24. @jukedock I assume since you are running colored roms through pindmd3 that you are using freezy's dmddevice.dll. Check out his project pages and make sure you are running the latest release. Report any bugs with it on the github project site. Thx. https://github.com/freezy/dmd-extensions
  25. No it is referring to the post of Tyson directly above my post. No idea about your problem
  26. If that is answering my question then I have done all of that......
  27. You did not not update the dmddevice.dll !!
  28. . Today I received the new PCB, for last version I will do about DMDST32, this is the "12V DC Ready Edition", to connect direclty to 12V DC, so do not need external power supply. Also I have add some improvements to design. Add 2 x buffers to may connect a Topper with P5 led panels in mirror mode, add a push button fo enter in update mode, now the led panel power cables are very short and directly soldered under PCB (for better look), flat cable with custom correct length (no more original flat cable Folded and flanged), Switched DC-DC centered and with horizontal inductor. And this new PCB, install a new LED panel design, according with manufacturer " Refresh rate more good and more better remove shadow effect ", so may be solve the BLEEDING problem. As soon as I assemble, today or tomorrow, I will test to confirm. Tomorrow I hope start to ship the first batch or "DMDST32 12V DC Ready Edition". Thank you to everybody for patience to wait, unfortunately the led panel manufacturer changed design without warn about it, so I had to change PCB design as fast as possible, send to factory and wait. At any rate I think this is the best DMST32 design, I will post pictures about product assembled as soon as possible.
