  1. Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Yep that's the age I'm at, sure the kids are all school age but they're early primary, so me time is after they're in ed and the house is tidied up for the day. But yes, short of an OS reinstall to ensure the drivers are gone gone gone it sounds like it could be bad hardware
  2. Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Yes this did work for me, but I stupidly corrupted my SATA drivers while doing it, so I had to reinstall Windows and after that it worked fine and the upgrade worked perfectly. In hindsight I should have done as Lucky1 suggested and it would have had the same effect. However I was tired at the time and wasn't thinking. But yes as Lucky1 said you've got to make sure you've unplugged the USB cable that you use to play the tables with and you pug a cable into the opposite side (it is a different UBS connector) in order for ST-Link to work.
  3. Pin2dmd.exe keyfile problem

    I've copied the 14 files from the latest mapster.zip file on pin2dmd.com and replaced the files in my pin2dmd directory. I run pin2dmd.exe in the directory with my key file and now I get this: any ideas? Also I've updated my firmware to the version for v3stm3f4-discovery from that same zip file and it worked for about 10 minutes before I ran into the key file issue from yesterday. OK I've done the old have you tried un-plugging it and plugging it in again and that seems to have fixed it, go figure.
  4. Pin2dmd.exe keyfile problem

    No using the same version of pin2dmd.exe that I've always used. Should I use the version of pin2dmd in the master archive in /tools/latest?
  5. Pin2dmd.exe keyfile problem

    Sorry to bother you again @lucky1 but after sucessfully updating to the 2.55 firmware I've got the same problem. when you say copy to the micro SD do you mean the keyfile?
  6. Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Thanks for that. I'll hopefully get onto fixing it tonight.
  7. Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Sorry for my ignorance but how do I fix the drivers and install those provided by STM?
  8. Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    I've got a related question to this. After installing the GB 1.1 vpx table I'm looking to add the colorization. In VPinspa I can test the ROM to work with the altcolor directory and pin2dmd.pal file and it looks awesome. But then when I load the table in VPX it goes back to orange and colorizes around that, no so awesome. I thought maybe it could be the firmware of my Pin2DMD. So I disconnected the micro USB cable and plugged in the mini USB on the other side. I loaded the ST Link software and no matter what I do I receive No ST Link found. I'm currently on Firmware 1.46 which I updated to a few months back (November or October last year?) and it worked fine then. Any ideas on what may be causing this? When I plug in the mini USB the DMD boots fine and comes up with the normal Colorprism image, etc. And assuming it's a zdiag USB driver issue, should I use the version in the master zip file or upgrade to v 2.3?
  9. Thanks for that. Worked a treat
  10. 1;Sorry for the newbie question but how do I get th table to work? My launch keeps telling me, "Line 58: game not found!" I fiure that's got to do with vPinMAME not finding the rom but I've place avr_200.zip in my roms directory but in my test list for vPinMAME 2.9 I can't see Avatar. Do I have the wrong vPinMAME version, if so which version should I have or how do I add it to vPinMAME?
  11. PIN2DMD freezing then completely not working

    A followup after 2 days of things working. Thanks for the help Lucky1 you assistance was perfect and the IPCA-ve is running smoothly now along side the Pin2DMD. Thank you again, and I love the colours I'm seeing now, so much nicer under the new firmware. an d XDMDs
  12. PIN2DMD freezing then completely not working

    I read the github link some more and learned a valuable RTFM lesson thanks to my wife not giving up.
  13. PIN2DMD freezing then completely not working

    Thanks for that i'll give that a try.
  14. PIN2DMD freezing then completely not working

    I changed the drivers to WinUSB and while I could still access it directly using pin2dmd.exe PinballX and Visual Pinball 9/10.2 both reported that pindmd could not be found. However I changed back to the libusbK drivers and everything worked again and I plugged in a friend's IPAC2 and the issue did not return. So given I've not tried a more modern IPAC and a Xin-Mo budget controller I suspect the issue is more with the older IPAC than the PIN2DMD. I'd be happy to use the WinUSB drivers if someone could help me config PinballX and Visual Pinball to point to the device manually, however I'm inclined just to replace the clashing hardware. Thanks again for you help.
  15. PIN2DMD freezing then completely not working

    OK I'll try that, it didn't give me an option in zdiag to replace driver with WinUSB last night, from memory, but I'll have a look tonight when I'm home form work. Thanks again for your help.
