Pinkadia! The Ultimate Virtual Pinball / Arcade / Pc Combo Cabinet!

71 posts in this topic

Here is a demo of the new program DOFLinx (formerly DOFFX2) by DDH69. I've been beta testing it for a while now. This program has many more features and now provides full true feedback for Future Pinball using DOF.

This means support for all of the modern pinball cabinet toys, lighting and feedback for Led-Wiz, Sainsmart USB, PACLED64, and KL25Z.

This is my first attempt at doing anything with VB script and adding feedback to a table. I modded Star Trek (Stern) Ultimate Edition by SLAMT1LT to include animated lighting effects and feedback. Here is a video demo of DOFLinx running on my cabinet:

Aliens Legacy (Ultimate Badass Edition) (V1.12) (DOFLinx-Cabinet Edition)
 
DOFLinx mod by TerryRed
 
A video demonstration of this table running on my cabinet using DOFLinx can be seen at:

 

 

Man, this mod was alot of work, but alot of fun....but only because this table has so many cool modes and features....
 
You have never seen a Future Pinball table with this kind of feedback and lighting in a cabinet!
 
I added animated RGB flasher effects for:
 
-machine gun turret fire
-grenade explosions
-nuclear explosions
-flame thrower
-blow torch
-custom flasher sequences to match those of the table's
-orbit (spinner?) effects
-ship drop sequence
 
I made use of some combined effects like shaker / blower fan / lights.
 
Devices supported on this table:
 
Left flipper
Right flipper
Left slingshot
Right slingshot
Mid field left solenoid
Mid field center solenoid
Mid field right solenoid
Back left solenoid
Back right solenoid
Flasher, outside left
Flasher, inside left
Flasher, center
Flasher, outside right
Flasher, inside right
Blower Fan
Shaker
Gear Motor
Strobe
Beacon
Start button
Coin button
Launch Ball button
FIRE button
RGB Undercab Lighting
 
 
I had to use 14 Timers and sub routines to match up some effects with video clips.
 
The table is a bit hard....but if you can progress, you'll be rewarded with a nice light show and some good feedback.

I present another fine Future Pinball table now given the DOFLinx treatment:
 
Superman (Ultimate Edition) (SLAMT1LT) (DOFLinx - Cabinet Edition)
 
A video demonstration of the table running on my cabinet using DOFLinx can be seen here:
 


 
This is another fun table that is now even better thanks to DOFLinx.  
 
I added animated RGB flasher effects for:
 
-Superman Ball Launch
-Machine Gun Fire
-Regenerating Sequence
-Ball Lock
 
I made use of some combined effects like shaker / blower fan / gear motor and flasher lights.
 
I made the RGB under cabinet lighting change based on events during play: Krypton Ball, Tilt, Fight, etc..
 
 
Devices supported on this table:
 
Left flipper
Right flipper
Left slingshot
Right slingshot
Mid field left solenoid
Mid field center solenoid
Mid field right solenoid
Back left solenoid
Back right solenoid
Flasher, outside left
Flasher, inside left

Flasher, outside right
Flasher, inside right
Blower Fan
Shaker
Gear Motor
Strobe
Beacon
Start button
Coin button
Launch Ball button
RGB Undercab Lighting
 
 
Custom Backbox Overlay Frame:
 
I added a custom "Overlay" frame on the backglass that fits a 16:9 screen perfectly and works with the videos and LCD graphics on the backbox. (which I also relocated to the backbox as they were not visible for cabinet users). If you don't want to use this and prefer the original backbox artwork, then just use the Future Pinball editor...chose Translite...and then "unlock" and drag the "SupermanBG" Overlay off screen..and save the table.

Iron Man (Ultimate Edition 1.06) (DOFLinx – Cabinet Edition)


A video demonstrating this table in my cabinet using DOFLinx can be seen here:

 

 

The ULTIMATE Iron Man pinball cabinet experience!

-unique animated flasher effects based on what mode you’re in

-animated machine gun effects during Iron Monger modes

-animated electrical effects for Whiplash and Iron Monger

-blower fan gives a woosh effect while flying on the ramps

-shaker motor effects for Whiplash’s and Iron Monger’s magnets, as well as machine gun and repulsor fire

-every time the repulsor is fired off with the FIRE button (launch and Iron Monger attack), the flashers slowly charge up “white” to match the video clip and then blast.

-when Iron Monger rises and lowers, the gear motor operates.

-The RGB under cabinet lighting will change based on your music selection, and also what multiball or game mode you are in

-Fire button, of course works…as does Launch, Coin, and Start

-animated Orbits left / right.

-beacon goes off during all multiball modes, bogey, jericho, do or die, and Iron Monger modes.

-strobe effects

-10 solenoid feedback for flippers, bumpers, kickers, etc.

-and other stuff I probably forgot about…

I don’t know if you guys realize this….but I actually don’t even hear these games while I record them. I have the speakers turned off. The only thing I hear is the noise of the solenoids from the cabinet. The game sound is recorded with the playfield capture, and then I sync everything up afterward. This allows for much better sound in the video. I get to know these tables real well while doing the mods. I imagine what voices or sounds are played in my head so I don’t talk over them. :)

Hi Terry,

I am adding a Zebs Basic Easy kit for feedback to my cabinet. I really like the way you made your light bar with side lights, so I didn't get Zebs light bar, I've ordered the LED strips and looking forward to getting this setup.. In your video, you said you used the Teensy board which has a Cat5 cable coming out of it. I was thinking of the Teensy 3.6 board w/pins. Is this the one you picked up? I'm not sure from the pic on the PJRC storefront if it has the CAT5 plug. Can you verify?

I used the 3.2 Teensy, and the Octo Board and Pins as seen on this page:

The octoboard is what allows you to use the cat5 cable. You can direct solder if you want as an alternative to using it. I used an octoboard but still don't have my leds working with dof

OK... I checked the site and ordered the 3 items. Looks pretty simple with his clear instructions. I'm glad I asked, as I almost ordered the 3.6 last night. Thanks for the quick reply!

I've wired many a LED strip for my Christmas decorations, and it seems like this is wired a bit differently. I just add a ground wire from the power supply at the start and end of each full run. The ground runs through all the strips using the 3 connectors strip-to-strip. With the Octoboard, you need to wire a ground from the Octo to the start of each strip? For your setup, on the 6 strip back LED display, do you use that ground on each strip on one side (say the right) only?

Do you power inject every 2 strips?

You can do it a couple of different ways...

For my setup, I have both Power (5V) and GND (5V-) from the 5V supply injected at each of the side strips and on the back matrix. The DATA line connects continuously from the Octo board, to the first strip, and then runs continuous to the back matrix, and then the other side strip.

You can also run separate data and gnd lines to each strip / matrix, but I haven't set it up like that.

That sounds like the way I do it with the power and ground lines. So the data line is the ONLY line running from the Octoboard....

DATA and GND from Octoboard to the first LED Strip.  5V GND ( also known as 5V-) also connects to the GND of first strip and each strip / matrix.
