    Don't worry about getting all of the data at once. when you start playing around with the scenes on a particular machine, you will see that there are some very common scenes, just start with those. on scenes that are very uncommon, maybe you can just set a pallet switch(very simple but very limiting) rather than coloring the scene. I haven't actually completed a color project but I am working on Medieval Madness. I have started by just having a single color pallet(like an original DMD) and just coloring one scene at a time and trying it out on the pinball machine. I have 2 PIN2DMDs one next to my computer and the other in my MM. I just swap the SD card to test out my progress in the machine but use the one near my computer to actively see how it looks while I program it.

    View File FirePower (Williams 1980) (coyo5050) (db2s) Complete overhaul/redraw/edit of this backglass. All the images I could find had pictures of back glasses in rough shape so needed a TON of work. Also the pictures were tricky because of the mirror glass, which I ended up recreating. I couldnt find any videos showing what the multi-ball animation looks like so I re-used part of Dozer316 animation scripts and changed it around to have animations. Spent many hours on this so hopefully people enjoy it! If you like it let me know, comments are VERY motivating if you would like me to do more!

    This looks really amazing, great work! I don't own a TSPP but if I did a $15-$20 fee for it would be a no brainer as the machine runs $5K+ Canadian... but on a my Virtual Pinball that is a more challenging price point I look forward to seeing it on my Virtual Pin one day if it does become free.

    Ouch..... not only $155,000 but the cnc router and the large format printer. That sounds more like he was given them to accomplish the work by skit-B and so remain skit-B assets. That's gonna cause some issues with his operation. The $155,00.00 alone would bury me. I was approached by Popadiuk/Zidware way back when and it was only after analyzing some research into his bill paying habits that I avoided getting myself into a similar mess. I guess it's a case of there but for the grace of God go I.

    My reply was for the beginner (the OP), VPX is the easier one to install and run. No pm/fs/dt table versions .. just install with rom and directb2s and usually good to go. v9 tables can be old/new/broken/etc...

    Ok, i am able to control the Nucore software by sending and receiving data to the LPT port in code. I just tested the flippers and received data to a textfile. This means VP could control the Pinbox software. This kind of ends this POC for me. I have no desire in really making a module, this would be a lot of work. and will probably get me in trouble.

    You forgot to assign keyframes to the scenes you created. I uploaded a modified version. Which should export a fsq file also. Due to the crazy format Gottlieb is using to send the frames to the DMD there are limitations. You can only use frame replacement and palette switching which means you can´t add more colors to a scene with dynamic content like score etc. Is the display constantly alternating colors ? If yes you should try the other Gottlieb mode with pin2dmd.

    Making A Start - Safecracker :)

    Hi all, So - Whilst this sub-forum is primarilly about the Pin2DMD devices, I have one of the new DMD ST32's from PinballSp in Spain. Whilst this sounds like it's off topic, it still uses Lucky1's firmware, and still uses Steve's Pin2dmd editor, so no changes for those of you that are familiar with it Why Safecracker? Well it's something that colordmd arent going to touch with their range of LCD's since these are physically too big to fit. There is no spare room around the DMD above standard size, so until they come up with their rumored LED boards, and then code the thing, this IS the only solution Ok - so trying to get my head around this keyframe and pallette malarky (has anyone got a link to a decent youtube video that explains these and how they interact with pinball editor?? Steve's make sense to a point, however only seem to scratch the surface). I can grab the images using pinmame and the special file, so figured i would start with the standard attraction screens, and progress from there. The first question i have is - How do people cope with scrolling screens? SC scrolls a lot from right to left ( <-), and really i would like to have different pallets for different screens. Not sure on recommended techniques for when the screens scroll, and also capture of these from the Raw files. Any advice??? Thanks Paul

    SAMBuild2.9 beta thread

    PotC and Shrek cant´work with the dmddevice.dll from freezy, because the inframe colorization mechanism used by these tables is not public. No idea why tables don´t crash with freezys dll and crash with mine.on your machine. The tables work fine on my cab. The difference between patched and non patched ROMs is the self modifying code patch of sidechannel. This caused problems with the jit compiler in the past. So maybe setting at91_jit to zero helps. Use the search function to find more details about this option.

    New to all this/ where to begin?

    You have all the skills that I have. My advice… start small. Get yourself a few monitors and a PC with a decent graphics card and see if you can get the technology to work. You can also get an X arcade controller (not necessary but I did and really enjoyed it). If you are comfortable with all of this, you'll be in great shape going forward. The physical cabinet and hardware are just details after that. You can test/add/remove hardware options for plungers, speakers, etc. as you are comfortable and you can afford.

    View File The Addams Family Gold Backglass This version is for the Gold Collectors Edition. I have also included Cousin IT as a shadow in the upper left window when lit.. which I found hidden on a real Translight image for the pinball machine :) As I could not find a clean Backglass image for The Addams Family Pinball, I searched the Internet and found multiple photos that I have merged and cleaned up in Photoshop. I have created three Backglass files: 1. A standard Grill version 2. A version that has a larger DMD area as I prefer a larger DMD on my Backglass 3. A No Grill version that retains the THING letters for a 3 Screen setup Anyone wishing to mod this backglass may do so and the images can be used for your own projects should you wish… Enjoy Submitter Pookamoondo Submitted 04/14/2017 Category B2S Backglasses

    Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Thank you for that information, very helpful! With this info I can do what I want now, mainly changing the background color from grey-ish to real black (like the pal in Dracula i.e.) Nevertheless........ a kind of .pal editor where you can load a pal file and adjust the 4 colors (like the F1 menu)....I think it would be a very welcome little program for the VP users.... Some test info: I did this: see the image Color 0 = red, 1=green 5=yellow and 15 = white. All others are pink. So...saved palette and put it into CFTBL altcolor rom. first test: there should be no pink in the DMD.... Check :-) 2nd test: other colors should be visable: check : red = background, white = foreground letters and green&yellow do appear as well. Strange thing however is that when I press F1 when the table runs these colors are not visable there. (see picture as well). Editing colors in the F1 menu is also not very smart I guess because the next time you load the table it will load the pal file, overwriting the colors you changed. Yes you could delete the pal file and keep the colors as they are in the registry but when doing a VP re-install you will lose these settings as well. (then you could export the registry and...well......long story). So..I think a simple color editor would be nice but for me with your explanation it's fine, thanks!

    Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    The pin2dmd.exe is mainly used for real pinball machines. 1) 4 color machines use color 0,1,4,15 of the 16 colors palette. 2) Pal files are saved in the pin2dmd.exe directory only in offline mode with no active USB connection to your display. In online mode it is saved directly to the SD card if present. If you only want to change the 4 static colors you either use the pinmame colorize settings or the export function of the pin2dmd editor.

    Both c13 and C14 are whats call bypass caps or decoupling caps. They are used to keep down noise on the power line that with enough can cause problems, Generally in cmos stuff every chip gets one! In this case c14 is used for R2 See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decoupling_capacitor I still dont like the signal I see on the enhanced line and will look into the original design when I get more time. Blew another 5+ hours today trying to get my first pin2dmd going aaaaaannnnnnnd ITS NOW RUNNING! And when I get time and more info I am going to create a wiki or faq or how to because there is soooo much information not known. like the blue and green light and how they behave and what is actually going on when they flash. Only the coder and developer can answer that! Basically it being my first is what made it very painful, second I chose a Stern Whitestar machine that thinks its a Sega Machine!

    Is this problem pinballx related ? I mean, if you start the table outside of Pinballx - does the correct backglass start up ? IF so, then you need to turn off the option in pinballx that tries to match these file for you.

    The Simpsons pinball party

    Hi,I´m proud to present The Simpsons Pinball Party PIN2DMD colorization project which I started 2 months ago for my own pinball machine.I never did anything like this before and I had to learn a lot how to get it done in the quality i wanted to have. One of the biggestparts was to make all the recordings, using the pin2dmd tool, containing all the scenes of a gameplay. After all the time I have spent on this, I must admit that I would rather have paid somebody else 15-20$ to get a ready to use colorization, instead of doing it by myself. That is why I ask you to support my job and if you want to have a copy of my work please make a donation by using this linkhttps://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=JLRAHFTD23UKUI will send you 2 files you simply need to copy on the SD card and put it into your pin2dmd. I will also send you updates automatically if available. Out of respect for my work and as a motivation for future projects, I kindly ask you not to forward these files to other users. Please also report me if you get my work offered from other sources. Thank you !!PIN2DMD firmware version 2.38 or later and Display ROM v5.0 in english is recommended, since all my work is based on this versionIf you find any uncolorized scenes, or bugs, let me know, how you got it, or send me recordings / videos. We have conversation about vpin users and it's will be available for free in future. But right now i provide only files which will be works on both machines, real pinball and virtual pinballs. Version for vpins only, will works only on vpins.

    Simulating Force Feedback with Subwoofer

    I've got a Buttkicker mounted under my couch, and was wondering the same thing, LFE to simulate kicks / contactors and rumble. The kicks can be quite immense, things will fall apart if not screwn together and I absolutely would not have spinning rust (hard drive) anywhere near the cabinet I would imagine a Buttkicker could literally make the cab move itself if left unchecked, not sure if it's even safe for the electronics. Playfield glass could shatter. The Moon could be affected. Erhmm. C-: I'm loving the idea though! Been thinking about it for a while. Contactors are good, but can be quite noisy during the evenings and it's a bit stressfull after work. Seems the simplest initial effort could be to trigger LFE sounds of varying intensity and strength on trigger, basically a device of its own (sound). Just for kicker and slingshots themselves could be huge.
