  1. Yesterday
  2. I've done everything in the "read first" post by swisslizard and double checked everything. I think I have deleted all B2S files outside my Visual Pinball folder (I am interested if there's a good way to check beyond searching for "B2S") and unblocked all DOF and B2S UAC messages. I've checked the "activate plugins" in B2s. I'm using the Pinscape (R3) version of DOF with the Pinscape main interface expansion board. DOF only for 4 button lights. I installed as "in own directory." 'DirectOutput' folder in 'Visual Pinball' folder. Unpacked the Pinscape R3 DOF version contents into the folder. Created a 'plugins' folder in my VPX table folder, and placed a shortcut to 'DirectOutput' folder inside. I created a 'configs' folder in my 'DirectOutput' folder and put my DOF Configtool files inside. NOTES: 1. My installation didn't create a "config" folder in the "DirectOutput" folder. Just to confirm, is that a folder I create? I didn't see instructions but did see on DOF page screenshots. And that is the location I place the DOF Configtool files (?) 2. I don't have a "global config" file. Not sure where to go next. Help appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Seemed pretty on point to me. freezy saved pinDMD3 from being a complete waste of its capabilities. I still can't get my orange to look as good on the pin2dmd as it did on pinDMD3 but I haven't really tried to be honest... what little time I get in front of my Vpin these days is spent playing, not messing around with settings! So many good tables coming out. I do need to turn it back on though and get the latest version of vpinmame on there and give Metallica another run to see if I can get that coffin lock acting right.
  4. I don't disagree.
  5. Check and see the last time russdx even visited VPF. You got what you got thanks to third party support. That's what I'm saying. I'm sure it functions fine, but it truly seems expensive for what you are getting. Might be worth it for some who don't want to take the risk of sourcing from Alibaba. It's about the only benefit I can think of. It is what it is, though. In the immortal words of Xenomorph: Carry on!
  6. I figured the checksums wpuld never match. Should i be using pinballbrowser yo build the rom patches in some way Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  7. Your laying it a bit thick there Carney. Pindmd3 is a nice product. Freezy is still developing dmd-ext so ...
  8. You will never have matching checksums for patched roms. There is no such thing as an "official patch". That's why you must enable Ignore CRC Rom errors in the game settings. These "colored" entries in the source exist to enable loading of any sort of patched rom that makes use of Pinball Browser/SmartDMD's side channel loading feature that can cram more color data into the code. File sizes for these games are larger than the size of the unmodified game code so these entries had to be added to the source in order to bypass the usual VPM file size checks. It's on the to-do list to fix this one of these days, but that's more of a cataloging issue than one of function. Yeah, no one has reported any problems with the FG patch on any of the display systems. It's really good. POTC and Shrek apparently used some other form of colorization, and both are currently fully supported only via Pin2DMD hardware. Same with the recent colorization projects that used the Pin2DMD editor. I do feel bad for the PinDMD3 people. Seems like the support turned out to be vaporware. @roar is one who went ahead and made the switch and converted from PinDMD3 to Pin2DMD. You have the panels. You just need the Discovery board and a shield. What is that? $40 or $45? Then you can run everything.
  9. I can tell you that Family Guy is definitely working because that's what a my favorite tables recently for some odd reason but I get crashing with multiple builds of Metallica ROMs and I never get matching checksums Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  10. I'm fighting my pindmd3 with xdmd currently. I don't think I could tell you what I have and haven't done at this point I have tried every suggestion I have found buried in forums. I even did a complete reinstall of Windows 10 and I'm still struggling Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  11. Version 1.0.0

  12. Don't forget his backhanded slap to everyone else who's releasing tables: "Table alone is awesome. Rare one with no major bugs" On behalf of myself and everyone who else who works on these things and PROVIDES THEM FREE OF CHARGE and might put something out that isn't perfect, let me sincerely apologize for the inconvenience these "major bugs" cause you. I'll be sure to issue you a full refund,
  13. Hmm. That is a good point. I know I have at least 3 tables where I couldn't get them to run stable without disabling at91jit. Guess it is time for trying to revert those to see the outcome. Believe it is TWD, Metallica and I'm sure Avatar is currently running with this setting disabled. I'm playing a bit around with Avatar, opening and adjusting it often. Without at91jit. If I open the table, change the smallest thing and start it will crash every time. Not the case with it disabled. ,
  14. If you had done stuff to try and troubleshoot the crashing, you may need to undo those things. Double check that Use External DLL is turned on for the color ROM in the VPinMame Setup, test, game options menu for Metallica LE color. Also make sure the Pin2DMD.PAL file is in the correct place in the altcolor folder. .
  15. Happy birthday arngrim. Enjoy the day with your family and friends. Have a nice time. Gesendet von meinem SGP511 mit Tapatalk
  16. Am using 3.0 now. Vpinmame would crash before now it just runs. But I get no dmd from it. I am also using dmdext 1.5.2 and a pindmd3 fyi
  17. Have you tried 3.0? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  18. Okay, I played around a bit... an YESSSS it really works just by using the two files of freezy in the timeshock-folder and editing the start-options. Here is my timeshock config line for further use [Config DOF] Timeshock,0,0,S7,L5,0,0,0,0,0,S3,S4,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,S5,L7,0,0,L3,0,S4/S6,S4/L4,S4,S3,S3/L6,S3 For your information I show you my ledwiz-channels (I only have got 5 RGB-LEDs installed at the moment): 3: right-red 4: right-green 5: right-blue 10: slingshot-flasher(white)-left 11: slingshot-flasher(white)-right 21: center-red 22: center-green 23 center-blue 24 left-red 25 left-green 26 left-blue 27 outer-right-red 28 outer-right-green 29 outer-right-blue 30 outer-left-red 31 outer-left-green 32 outer-left-blue The flashers of the crystal, the 4 locks (a,b,c,d), flashing-effects for the 3 jet-bumpers and flashing-effects for the 2 slingshots work great!!! WOW! It's much better to play with LEDs... I love it! Playing FP with LEDs is nice, but Timeshock is awesome!!! Thanks a lot to all the guys who made this possible. Especially arngrim and freezy! ---- There seem to be still a few problems: - I cannot use the flasher of the time-machine just by using "L2" on the right code-position. The light stays ON when starting a game. I think there is some other kind of triggering the timemachine-flasher. - Same at the to returnline-flashers (L0, L1). When starting a game they are already ON. But: While those virtual-bulbs are on the bottom-position on the playfield it maybe looks better not to use the upper real-led-flashers... so the problem is not tragic... just strange... maybe the problem can be solved by using a more detailed command (not just "L2" or so)... but I don't know how to do this. ---- And: DOFSlave crashes everytime when I close Timeshock. There is a windows-message that tells that the exe could not be stopped correctly. (I do not use steam -> got the kickstarter version) The logfile (directoutput.ini) is written (don't have it here at the moment, sorry) but I have to delete it after EVERY session, because without deleting it my leds do not work when I start Timeshock the next time. My solution: I deleted all the text in the file, saved it empty and did a write-protection on it. So I just have to click on the windows-error message, but do not have to kill the ini every time when I finished playing. @Freezy: Don't you really want to get my donation for yourself like I promised earlier this week?! If so, I'll try to find another good beneficiary!! Thanks a lot again... ---- Almost forgot: IMPORTANT TIP: Don't forget to use the operation menu of timeshock (options!). Here you can test every single solenoid and flasher!
  19. Last week
  20. So I am having a hell of a time with colored roms. I have a handful working and others that fail. Ie metallica. Stock 1.70 rom is great but with the colorpatch kust fails. Is this due to me being 2.9 or something else. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  21. it looks great Are you in the plan, also coloring Indiana Jones?
  22. happy birthday, enjoy your day!
  23. I don't think there have been any changes recently that would negatively impact Freezy's DLL. I use his DLL myself, so my cab would break badly if that was messed up. There is a change that hopefully improves the stability a bit with some SAM games when his DLL is in use (fixed some intermittent TWD color crashing on my cab).
  24. Depends on level of compatibility. GTS3 lag isn't fixed yet. I was hoping to see him working on a fix for that. But, I expect that it is delayed because Lucky1 is on holiday. Maybe we get a official status update from him since you asked and I'm guessing.
  25. Quick question since I've been out of the loop for a few months. Is Freezy's DMD-Extensions compatible with this version?
  26. Hey, happy birthday Arngrim! Have a nice party!!!! ALLES GUTE ZUM GEBURTSTAG!
  27. Yeah - happy birthday Arngrim !
