  1. Help with Colour DMD's - Query

    Replace your dmddevice.dll from freezy's dmd-ext into pinmame folder. I've written a wiki about it - does apply for LCD DMD's as well. http://vpinball.com/wiki/visual-pinball-knowledge-base/pindmd3-replacing-pindmd-dll-for-dmddevice-dll/
  2. SAMBuild3.0 beta thread

    Yeah. No problems what so ever here. And - well, didn't notice that Arngrim was late because I went the Jesperpark way first ... playing 160 on 156 dof config
  3. SAMBuild3.0 beta thread

    That sounds weird I admit. I would try to turn off at91jit and see if that helps.
  4. Black Hole is missing in DOF's table mappings

    I use blkhole7 - the 7 digit rom and it populated in the config tool ??
  5. SAMBuild3.0 beta thread

    LOL ... no, thank you Arngrim !
  6. SAMBuild3.0 beta thread

    Oh. Damn. Forgot - thank you very much @luvthatapex !
  7. SAMBuild3.0 beta thread

    I was sure you're cab was up and running again by now Carny !! Still that monitor ??
  8. 1) On in all installer from here http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=11573 - get VPX3setup.zip This gives you 10.3 stable. Consider getting 10.4 beta http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=38450&p=384799 - if you do, well - there may be bugs ... but, those do exists for 10.3 as well ... in the editor there are actually more bugs in 10.3 than in 10.4. Since you hare here. You are probably looking for Stern/SAM "upgrade". The latest stable is 2.9 I believe. Unpack over the other files in pinmame folder. Take the sam.vbs and put it into \visual pinball\scripts folder. Run 'setup.exe' ( not the 64 bit one ... if it is included ) press "install". There exists a beta for SAM as well. http://vpuniverse.com/forums/topic/3241-sambuild30-beta-thread/?do=findComment&comment=37623 There are a few tables out there that require these betas. I recommend you to go with stable releases, and wait for this software to come out of beta.
  9. SAMBuild3.0 beta thread

    You should probably have read the thread 4 articles above your question
  10. SAMBuild3.0 beta thread

    @nbcrew Why add them if we can't emulate ?? The titles you mention are spike - not sam.
  11. SAMBuild3.0 beta thread

    The short version : You should run the setup.exe if you update the pinmame.dll from this site. From time to time the official pinmame is updated - that one is currently released without SAM support, You need to update that software, then head over here for a new adrenaline injection. SAM is a brand of pinball CPU/Board that Stern doesn't use any more. Currently they use the cheaper to produce SPIKE which we don't have emulation for. This is also why you don't see tables like Ghostbusters ( except JP's scripted solution ) and Game of Thrones out there. You may see problem with SAM emulation getting fixed without anything happening to the official. Lately it has often been DjRobX that has fixed or added new features to the code and Carney could maybe best be described as the gatekeeper ?! If the official pinmame gets support for new roms, he makes sure that SAM is recompiled with this support included. Speaking of roms, Carney also sees to that VPU always stays updated with the latest or correct(ed) roms. --- THANK YOU @CarnyPriest !!!! --- Here as over at VPF, you'll find a stable and a beta branch. You may need beta to get all the tables provided out there working, but, once you take that step, be prepared for instability and weirdness. That is why it is called just that - beta. 10.3 is the latest "stable" VPX. But, to be honest 10.4 beta is more stable than 10.3 ever was Think of it like this. Without pinmame, the heart. The rest of the body would not function ( Visual Pinball with all its current and previous versions ) That's kind the short version

    This table is a so called Original. That means, it is made from Fantacy of a pinball fan. Obviously there is no rom to control the scoring so he have chosen to use UltraDMD to "emulate" the dmd. What you need to do is unpack the folder that is often called <tablename>.UltraDMD to the same folder as the table goes. In most cases. c:\visual_pinball\tables folder. There has been some cases where the author has release the UltraDMD files only with their first release. So, you may have to download version 1.0 to get those files. Some others have released them as separate download. For the table "The Web" pr. example there is separate download for even the music. If you find Music files, those go into c:\visual_pinball\music folder. Good luck.
