    Start messing with South Park

    I started messing with South park today, Once I got everything going this evening it took me a couple hours just to play around with these. So now that I have a feel for things I believe I am going take this South Park head on.

    VPU Color ROM Patcher

    Version 0.01


    Use this program to quickly patch color ROMs. Download ROM and extract file (.bin) Download Color Patch (.diff) Select Original ROM (.bin) Select Color Patch for ROM (.diff) Enter name of ROM and ensure that you include .bin extension. Click Apply Patch Patched ROM will be placed in \mods\ folder where you have unzipped this app to. Right Click on the new ROM and select Send to > Compressed Folder. Make sure that filename is valid name from game list in PinMAME Setup. Please Note: ** I haven't done much testing of this. I patched a couple ROM's, but did not test them on my machine. I'm assuming they should work correctly. If you run into any issues; please let me know. Next version will have Auto zipping of completed ROM.

    fucking facepalm. So now hannibal is the creator is he? A few short leaps and it's all his? This is a mod of a mod and all the credits are missing. For the record, Fren and ICPJuggla made the original version of this table and Dozer did the LE mod with lots of updates, Flupper did the ramps, ninuzzu did the prison walker head and I did the Well Walker, bicycle girl and Fish Tank models. This is just shameful.

    Code change to enable SAM LE driver board support

    Here's a new Vpinmame for testing. 1) Includes Toxie's fantastic ddraw=0 scaler (with a bug fix). 2) Fix TZ gumball machine when modulated solenoids are turned on. It actually uses a FAKE solenoid to pop out gumballs.! Grr I hate this code. 3) Fix DMD size (empty black bar) issue with WPT, TSPP, Ripleys, and probably others with mini-DMDs. This one has annoyed me for years. What's weird is there was a pre-existing tag for hidden DMD objects, but it only HID things when MAME_DEBUG was turned on (That HAD to be backwards!) and was only utilized by one capcom game. *Edit" B verson - fixed Monopoly & NBA vpm103016b.zip

    Code change to enable SAM LE driver board support

    Some really fantastic news! Herweh has released the B2S sources. This allows us to fix some issues that were very painful to work around. Please test the following B2S build. It fixes: 1) Increases the lights to 400 from 251 to support games like Star Trek LE 2) Converts modulated solenoids to booleans internally so using the WPC/SAM modulated mode doesn't negatively impact or crash B2S. Full range should still be passed to DOF. 3) Passes GetRawDMD commands through to VPM, so dual controllers are not necessary for things like Cirqus Voltaire, or hopefully ... eventually native VPX DMD rendering. https://www.dropbox.com/s/5o61qx0gahc8r24/b2s102516b.zip?dl=0

    I have a WIP for TWDLE up on vpinball.com (Conversion of Fren's PRO table) - I thought I'd post it here as I can see some authors starting to convert it and I didn't want to double up on the same work. (Unless of course you want to make your own version). It's a couple of weeks out as it needs new mesh ramps and a couple of models and I'm in the middle of a work contract but all the mechs and RGB are in.

    Code change to enable SAM LE driver board support

    Since lots of people seem interested in GI support, here's a build that supports ROM controlled GI for the rest of the SAMs, and WhiteStar tables like LOTR. Tested it with the TRON and LOTR Roms. Here's the script you need, it comes in over the existing VPM GI channel.. This is for TRON. You of course also want to remove the GIOn/GIOff calls from other parts of the script now that the ROM will do it. Sub UpdateGI(no, Enabled) Select Case no Case 0 'Top If Enabled Then GIOn Else GIOff End If End Select End Sub set GICallback = GetRef("UpdateGI") SAM and Whitestar control the GI with a relay on the IO board. So there's no dimming possible here (the real tables won't either!) vpm102416.zip

    Version 2.9


    Unofficial Stern SAM enabled compile based on Visual PinMAME Same as official VPinMAME except 1. also supports Stern S.A.M. system including LE AUX board plus user customized full color DMD patches/mods for S.A.M. game code 2. also supports clones/hacks that have unique configurations in DOFConfigtool - blkou_hf, rambo, ratfink, missworld, penthouse Instructions for use: Install official Visual PinMAME http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=11571 Overwrite VPinMAME.dll with the SAMbuild version. Run Setup.exe again and press the 'Install' button. Copy the SAM.vbs file where you have your others vbs script files in your Visual Pinball/Scripts folder. In order for any user customized game code mods to load and run whether the mod adds full color DMD or a soundtrack remix, the game setting for the replacement game code set must have 'Ignore ROM CRC errors' enabled. PinMAME executable included for rom testing and auditing. Bass.dll from the official VPinMAME package must be in the same folder as PinMAME.exe. Compiled with VC2015 Special thanks to @Ginsonic and @TerryRed for testing and troubleshooting this cycle! PLAYERS NOTE (for 2.8 or greater): To align with official VPinMAME set naming from driver.c, the following were renamed: Iron Man & Iron Man Vault Edition im2 -> im X-Men xmen -> xmn The Avengers avg -> avs This will also require renaming the rom in VP table scripts For stable release based on official 2.7 go here and then click "See Changelog" button and select June 30 v2.34.

    Yep for sure. I'm 90% of the way there. I've discovered that the AIC interrupt controller emulation is woefully incomplete. It's supposed to manage concurrent activity (like timer and serial happening at the same time ), and re-fire pending IRQs when previous IRQs complete, but it's currently doing none of that. It's probably related to why we see those "not designed for this country" messages when we press buttons too quickly at boot. It's documented pretty clearly in Atmel's documentation. Should have it solved soon.

    Code change to enable SAM LE driver board support

    Update: I'm getting LED output from ACDC and Metallica now. It's using a different write method (character by character). Both of them use the same output structure though. No hack will be needed for these two. I still have to figure out why the output is stalling after a few updates. Interrupt handling problem of some sort. But at least there's progress.

    Color Palettes Collection

    Version 1.0.1


    This is a collection of 141 different color palette files for pinball tables. To use with pinmame >= 2.8 use a dmddevice.dll with support to read color palette information from /altcolor/"tablename" directory structure, Put the palette file in that directory and rename it to pin2dmd.pal. Activate colorize option in pinmame settings. To edit the palette files use the latest pin2dmd.exe tool from https://github.com/lucky01/PIN2DMD/archive/master.zip For real pinball machines copy the file as pin2dmd.pal to your SD card.

    Hi, this just a build aligned with the latest beta build at VPF. All of DJRobX's latest commits have been incorporated into the official source and the SAM improvements are now incorporated in the SAM driver as well. In terms of features, the only thing of note added here on top of the latest DJRobX test build is PinSound support. If you use a real DMD be sure to get the latest dmddevice.dll file for your controller board in the beta distribution at VPF. VPinMAME_SAM_2.45.zip

    Here is a testing version based on the latest version of Carny´s SamBuild for pindmd3 and pindmd1 It uses a modular driver interface for external DMD devices I have been working on. Simply put the dmddevice.dll and other related dlls into your vpinmame directory according to the device you have attached to your cab, pindmd2 driver is already tested and should work. Please report if pindmd3 and pindmd1 are also working since I couldn´t test.. If it works it could save Carny and Toxie a little time needed to make different builds Now also includes DLLs for PinballX and UltraDMD which support the dmddevice.dll driver interface PIN2DMD driver looks for pin2dmd.pal file in a subdirectory of your pinMame installation directory called altcolor/GameName e.g. you have to copy your palette file for TZ_92 into PinMame/altcolor/tz_92/ named pin2dmd.pal vpinmame_sam_latest.zip vpinmame_sam_2.36.zip

    This table is base on the nice Star Trek LE table of freneticamnesic, a very nice work. I have add 2 new asteroid, my first try to create 3D objects for an table. On the original pinball game they are 2 to cover the spots and I missed them. Additionally I update some lights, physics, and add the ball reflection for the game, because it looks like fantasic on this table. Now it looks like very nice on my 4k virtual pinball and I hope you enjoy it

    Code change to enable SAM LE driver board support

    Yep, that's exactly right. The contributors of this community are super impressive. Best example was when I was working on the LE RGB lights. I had finally figured out how to get the data, but I had a lot of work ahead of me to move that data into something VP could use, and I badly needed a diagnostic table, I made a post about it one evening. By the time I woke up the next morning, GTXJoe had created a test table, and Toxie provided some skeleton code. Those things would have taken me weeks to sort out. I don't think I've ever had such excellent support, even in my professional development career where people are getting paid! Once I finally had a test build, Fren ran with it and made that freaking amazing ST:LE table. Incredible teamwork. Such support definitely helps motivate me to keep going.. And of course nothing makes me happier than seeing all the great tables that utilize the new features like TWD LE, Mustang LE, Metallica LE, Scared Stiff, and forthcoming tables like AC/DC LE. I've been enjoying VP for a long time and I'm glad I found a niche where I could give something of significant value back.

    UGGGHH! B2s needs the GI level to be greater than 4 to turn the light on. Here's an update to VPM to now return GI as 0 or 9. I could change B2S to be more sensitive, but that might make existing backglasses have bad behavior. TABLE AUTHORS: If you have updated tables to use ROM controlled GI in WhiteStar or SAM, please change it to check for GI state greater than 0, instead of being equal to 1. Toxie/Carny, please pick up this change and publish new builds, as it may require modification of tables people are building tables against the betas. Thank you. vpm112916.zip For most regular users I recommend sticking with the previous build for now. The only change is the GI thing to fix DirectB2Ses that haven't been released yet. It may break the GI lighting on some tables that have just started to use the new GI routine.

    Thank you for the encouragement guys, it's really appreciated. OK, as promised here is a build to test. 1) Timing calculations tweaked. After rigorous testing I no longer see any attempts to throttle if there is not enough CPU to warrant it. 2) Post the actual build that I did testing against on the same machine! 3) In case #1 still fails, there is now an option in the registry: freeware\visual vpinmame\globals\low_latency_throttle Set to 0 to stop it from trying to evenly distribute the CPU usage. 4) Since I was adding a setting, why not add one more. I noticed a few people are trying to nail down ball stutter issues and are trying to use CPU affinity tools. There is merit to that approach as I've found some documented cases of timing problems ("sleep" lasting much longer than typical) when the OS switches threads around different CPUs that are solved by locking a thread to a single core. One problem is tools can't separate VPM from VP since they're one application. So we really need some help from the applications themselves if we want to dedicate these separate processes to their own cores. So you can find a new setting: freeware\visual vpinmame\globals\cpu_affinity_mask Please note that it is a "mask'. So if you want CPU #1 only, set it to 1.. CPU #4 only is 8. CPU's 1 and 4 is 9, etc. To get full use of this we will want a similar setting on the VP side. I have a simple code patch for that that I will give the VP devs. I also have added a setting to B2S so we can separate these things without external tools. 5) Fix Metallica LE and ACDC LE led strings. Let me know how it goes. vpm112716.zip

    Code change to enable SAM LE driver board support

    New update: WPC modulated solenoid support. I've only tested it on Scared Stiff so far but it seems to work pretty well. I'm also going to include my badly modified table, which is a mod of an apparently abandoned table by Shoopity. If someone has an issue with me posting this table please let me know and I'll happily remove it, it's just hard to explain/share how the new feature works without it. . Remember folks, I don't know what I'm doing with VP, but the light show looks pretty close to what I saw on videos. WPC is quite a bit trickier to get right. It doesn't write to solenoids in a predictable pattern like SAM. Instead I poll the current status of the soleniods at specific intervals (every few IRQ calls, around 400hz) and collect the bit history there. I must have spent all day looking for the best sampling frequency, and history depth to get mid-brightness dimming to look stable. The best example is the pop bumpers. When you hit them the ROM will make an electric buzzing noise, then fade them up and down. If the timing is at all wrong they will flicker. What I have is the best compromise between stable brightness levels and speedy "flickering" that I could come up with. Pretty happy with the result, anyway. I had no idea what I was missing before. ssmodsol.zip vpm102016c.zip

    Here's an updated video of the Mustang game with the new PWM flasher implementation. You can see the fade effect at the start of each ball launch up the back right of the table (skillshot flasher) and also toward the end of the video when the two rear and under turntable bumper flashers start to pulse. The table has been shipped off to Dark who is going to convert the ramps to proper 3D objects so that will really take it up a couple of notches. I can also confirm that the PWM solenoid gradients work with DOF as well so you can finally get the proper flasher effects on devices controlled by DOF. Being that solenoids are generally not RGB, you need to configure the ini files with entries that span this 3 inputs for an RGB light like so - (For a white flasher controlled by solenoid 30 you would do - S30 NoBool, S30 NoBool, S30 NoBool) which will turn Red / Green and Blue on to create white. (For Yellow - S30 NoBool, S30 NoBool, 0 ) - (For Blue - 0,0,S30 NoBool ) etc.

    Here's a current build of ST LE for testing purposes or anyone interested in trying it out. There's probably a couple bugs though I can't think of any. There may be a handful of things missing, off the top of my head I think just a bunch of flashers. They will be added soon but don't affect gameplay so not a huge deal to me yet. Lasers are in there, vengeance movement scripted, gates are scripted, left kicker and scoop are scripted, left outlane kickback is scripted, RGBs are scripted, the warp chaser lights and enterprise cabinet side chasers are scripted. Switched over the ramps to the LE style ramps (wireform) to accommodate the left scoop. Tweaked the physics a bit, changed the sounds. I haven't made a new apron yet but the lights are kind of laid over the top so you get some of the effect. I think the laser is pretty sweet, I adapted a demo script gtxjoe had made for moving balls in a circle and applied it to 120 VP light objects that circle the playfield. I don't really know how to get to the mode, I do know that if I complete a mode stack (3 of the same mode) it will come up quicker, so give that a try and see if you can get the laser to turn on. This has been fun, a needed distraction... DJRobX has done some amazing shit the past few weeks. https://www.dropbox.com/s/24df19sl29fr70v/stle 100116a.rar?dl=0

    Update: I got TWD LE to send LED data quickly by "transmitting" a bunch of 0xff's. Seems like as long as I send it a bunch of anything other than 0x00, TWD LE will start sending me the LED data pretty fast. This is good because the hack to enable the output wasn't clear on TWD as it was with Mustang LE. This technique doesn't work as well for Mustang. Mustang starts sending data faster than before, but still takes a while. So these games definitely are looking for input. Just need to figure out what it is that they want. I've also done work on the IJ and CSI problem. I got them working alongside the improved timer code. For some reason they don't like the deferred timer interrupts, even though it's clearly what's supposed to happen according to the ATMEL documentation, and the vast majority of roms play smoothly like they're supposed to when the interrupt controller is emulated. I can fake the old behavior by not sending a timer interrupt if the ARM core has IRQs are blocked. Once I do that, IJ and CSI work exactly like they used to (along with the sluggish emulation, but at least I didn't break anything). Since these are only two games, and old ones unlikely to get game code updates, I may look a programmatic hack so they run right.. The failure to launch ball is these games is really the "Not in this country" error message seen in other roms. I'm not sure why Stern went "evil" on these two games and just silently stopped allowing balls to launch (really a main loop of game code stops looping), but it's definitely that same 60hz zero crossing check. The IJ / CSI problem is less of a critical issue now that I'm able to make them work. I just didn't want to make changes that took away working games, since it's not really easy to switch VPM versions on a game by game basis .
