  1. A more appropriate place would be to ask for help in a new topic somewhere else. This is a dmd related problem. Not directly VPM. And for that reason I'm just going to respond once. Did you make sure that the dll files I mentioned is the only ones in those folders ? No old stray *.dll' laying around. A problem pr. example is if you have pindmd.dll in there. The official pindmd3 is still without color support. That is now the main difference between this beta and the official one. But, for pindmd3 it is, like you said. Recommended to use freezy and then 1.7.1 - not 1.7.2. 1.7.2 is ONLY for dmdext. Or you could try the newer one. But, my experience is that it just isn't working very well on my cab. Therefore I've picked mjr' version as he sent off a fix for 1.7.2, but, since it doesn't work. It is backported to his version of 1.7.1. Yes, this is a mess, but, it's what we've got.
  2. I don't want this thread full of pindmd3 support info. So, download this - look at the info inside https://www.dropbox.com/s/q46nj5ymrxarc2g/Thal_pindmd3_July_2018.zip?dl=0 This archive is a bit old, but should resolve the problem you're having. ( be smart - make backup of pinmame and ultradmd first ) After that, replace the "forked" dmddevice.dll for the on in my pinmame. For dmddext.exe - use 1.7.2 from freezy ( if you play FX3 ) Don't get hung up in the file sizes. It has it related to compression.
  3. A bit confused as to the update. Wasn't this already at 1.2 ? Did you change anything for Secret Service and POTO ?
  4. Thank you very much @CarnyPriest - a rush of roms and a new vpm build. We're really lucky to have you doing this for us.
  5. I trust your judgement in color selection is better than mine
  6. Since you are not specific on the problem I can't know if this is your solution. Please - be specific when you ask something. You will have much higher chance of me actually caring to respond if you do. Maybe not this time though https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=1362 Great start !! I love the more 4:3 look in the backglass.
  7. Validated that the rom has all the files it needs ? Recommended to download roms from this site.
  8. Try rename the nvram and see if it is releated to a corrupt state.
  9. Thanks for the update. Haven't played this exact update yet, but, I want to thank you for POTO instead. ❤️
  10. I think what I've got already looks great. Of course, happy to see an upgrade with more scenes !
  11. @toxie - something to look at ... some day down the road ?! Thank you @kds70 for a great report. I was too lazy as i just had run debugs for poto.
  12. Looking at the changes. A lot was done on 4789 - so maybe 4788 or older is ok ? Just a hint. Look at the svn history should help you track down changes. https://sourceforge.net/p/pinmame/code/4792/log/?path=
  13. Played the game yesterday and I didn't notice any issues ?! Or do you mean the sound for the drain pr. example, where I believe it is the astronaut screaming ? I know that there has been some work done one sound in the 3.2 life cycle. Not something Carny can fix, but, @toxie or any of the other main vpm devs might have a clue. The best feedback would be if you test builds from this thread, going back until it is ok again instead of comparing to 3.1.
  14. Sorry to hear that Ken. Been fortunate enough NOT to have that happen myself. But, then again, I live in a place where lightning strikes isn't a monthly event.
  15. Thanks for the update guys. Maybe you would accept some code change in order to get ssf working ? Not checked 1.1 yet - but, 1.0 could be improved a bit.
  16. Well, then you have to make the pinmame devs aware. And, they don't read all the threads. https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=27063&page=1 - seems to be the best fit.
  17. Right. Well, I'm pretty sure that I just mixed up the names there. I'm sure about the story. So, it was probably PinballMikeD I asked first and I remember now that _J_M is the one requesting payment. Thanks for rectifying me.
  18. Freezy' dll is not related - but, still there is a difference. The main difference now between the SAMBuild and the Official is that the Official doesn't have color support. It used to be that it didn't support Stern SAM mpu, but, that was let in from the cold a while ago.
  19. I don't think you get anything out of Sharkky. If i remember correctly. I asked him about patching for the newsts Metallica rom and he told me that he lost all the original stuff when his laptop was stolen. Not 100% sure if this was Sharkky or not. Been at least 8-9 mnd since I asked. I know that there is another guy that has done Metallica too, but, he requested money for each copy. His asking price wasn't unreasonable, but, one of the reasons I like this community so much is that it is mainly based upon sharing and helping each other out.
  20. @lukpcn Explained very nicely in this thread https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=42293&p=429527
  21. Thanks @DCrosby for not giving up on this table. I really think you've done an outstanding job.
  22. There is no external music for these tables. The music comes from the Stern rom.
