  1. Thanks for your help as always @lucky1 based on what you'd said about the dmddevice.dll I added it and in libusbk.dll to my virtual pinball directory and that fixed the issue. That fixed the problem. As for VP version I'm running 10.4.0 so I guess I've got something pointing to my VP version rather than my VpinMAME directory, but for now problem solved.
  2. I had a look in my PinballX directory, there was no dmddevice.dll but I copied the latest dmddevice.dll from the master Pin2DMD download into my PinballX directory anyway. Interestingly when I loaded pinballx at boot the PinballX logo video appeared on the DMD but then it went black again and not loading DMDs for any tables. This is still the same when loading tables directly in VPX after exiting PinballX.
  3. Hi @lucky1 I've succeswsfully upgraded my firmware to 2.60 for my PIN2DMD and also upgraded my dmddevice.dll (in my vpinmame directory v1.42) and pin2dmd.exe (in my pin2dmd directory). I can run vpinmam and run test DMDs but when I load a table through visual pinballX My DMD remains black and lifeless. any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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?
  9. Thanks for that. I'll hopefully get onto fixing it tonight.
  10. Sorry for my ignorance but how do I fix the drivers and install those provided by STM?
  11. 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?
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. I read the github link some more and learned a valuable RTFM lesson thanks to my wife not giving up.
