During the past few month a lot of new things have been added to the DirectOutput framework (DOF). Since most of my new ideas have been integrated by now it is time for a second release (R2).
Watch the following video to see some of the new features, in particular the addressable ledstrips, in action:
While I have been busy with the DOF extension Arngrim has added a lot of new functionality to the config tool, so the new functionality can be configured through the config tool. The config tool also got a new name and logo, but it still resides in its old location.
Please be sure to read the following paragraphs for download and update instructions.
Keep (virtual) pinball alive and all the best!

Upgrading your installation
To upgrade your DOF installtion just download DOF R2 and copy all the files in the package to the directoy where you have installed DOF and say yes if you are prompted to overwrite files. For new DOF installtions, please consult the documentation.
DOF R2 uses a new global config structure. So if you use a global config file, please create a new global config file using the global config editor in the package.
If DOF does not work for you, be sure to unblock the DLL and EXE files. Sometimes windows tends to block downloaded files. For instructions read: http://directoutput.github.io/DirectOutput/installation.html#installation_unblockauc
The documentation of the framework is available on GitHub. It contains a lot of information on the installation, architecture and the configuration of the framework, as well as the fully documented object model. The pages about the installation and supported hardware might be a interesting starting point.
