    Real Pinball
  1. Total annihilation looks great! One thing on real pin is the DCS Sound banner is grey but no big deal. Martians during Martian Attack are only green and white but that may be purposeful. I do notice the gradient on “GAME OVER” and some others the bottom 2 lines are so dark it looks clipped . But overall great job!
  2. Will TAF be completed or if not can the work to this point be released ?

    synchronous panels?

    Ok thanks Lucky, I have ordered some V3 shields I’ll try on them when they come in. I have also ordered some new panels from another seller. I will PM you for 3 more activations I tried a new discovery board to get activation number and the panels work with this board at 4.5v !! EDIT: it gets stranger ! 2 STM32F407G discovery board with serial # that starts with D2 work and 2 that start with D4 and D5 do not the serials # that start D2 also work perfectly with V2,60 firmware serials that start with D4 and D5 with OE shorted to ground work with v2.58 but have overlapping display on v2.60 I don't want you to waste any more time on this, but maybe this info is useful..... Thanks and Happy Christmas !

    synchronous panels?

    Hopefully these are readable, chips Near power connection are hard to read

    synchronous panels?

    Thanks Lucky but you’re right it would cost too much to ship. Thanks for all your help I’ll maybe put a scope on the oe and see what I can find out cheers Kevin

    synchronous panels?

    Can I access the OSD with old v1.4 shield?

    synchronous panels?

    In picture a few posts above the HUB75 area is pretty clear. I have also tried to put 220 mf electrolytic capacitors in missing cx4 and cx5 but no difference seen. Thanks Kevn

    synchronous panels?

    Yes so it is completely noisy at 5v and works best at ~4.5v , still very noisy at 4.8v. The biggest issue after that is the OE signal. If I jumper OE to the power supply frame it stabilizes it almost perfectly, otherwise it is scrambled. Some value r/c filter needed maybe ? Have any suggestions ? assuming it is AC interference (all other panels I have work fine) I made a crossover cable for the G and B signals and that corrects the colour issue. thanks for your time Lucky

    synchronous panels?

    Ok I have now tried panels in working Pinball and it shows that if the new panel is the second panel it is stable but not the correct color. If I use 2 new panels it is unstable.

    synchronous panels?

    Yes I have tried several different cables. I have found that if I touch PC6 (OE) or even touching the HUB 75 cable my body capacitance makes it become readable but not stable. You say you have the same panels, can you verify for me that cx4 and cx5 capacitors are missing from your panels as well, vendor says they aren't needed but maybe in our application they are. Thanks

    synchronous panels?

    I have updated to 2.60, I can now make out some letters sometimes and I can switch palettes in the pin2dmd tool however green is blue and blue is green so these must be BRG panels ? What can we do to make them work?

    synchronous panels?

    Ok will do thanks Lucky

    synchronous panels?

    It is 2.58, stmf4 pcb and v1.4 shield

    synchronous panels?

    Thanks Lucky, Chips appear to be FM6124 , below is picture of board, working pin2dmd and same shield and controller on not working new panels. Also you will see missing capacitors cx4 and cx5 , vendor says they aren’t needed.

    synchronous panels?

    I have made 6 pin2dmd panels successfully and look great. I have now purchased more panels but they do not work. The specs say that they are synchronous panels where others I have purchased are async/sync. Am I out of luck with these?
