  1. I didn't work on it since a long time... I can share my work to @rappelbox if somebody want to continue
  2. @sneaksneak If you don't connect an accelerometer (MMA8451) on SDA and SCL ports (20 et 21), the Arduino is still waiting for the connection with the chip and it can't react with buttons ou ledwiz commands. @vinw : Yes ! solenoid are more risky than contactors but you have to hold a long time (I didn't try more longer than 1 minute ), I prefer using contactors for flippers, safer !
  3. @alonia Which Arduino Mega did you buy ? Do you use an USBASP as described in cyclemat tutorial ? which type of USBASP ? Are you sure your MEGA have a 16U2 chip ? (and not a china clone with CH340) There is so many reason to have this message, you have to give us more precision
  4. Hello flicki, I'm so happy to see another member who keep interest with this project !!! first of all, I'm glad you make your flashing process work, that's the first way to the next level I began to make my own change with the mapping process and I tried to compile the code different way to make joypad buttons work... but that don't. For your information, i couldn't compile in windows, so I installed linux on another HDD and I compile under Ubuntu, much easier. For me the code isn't finished and we need a super-coder to make it works correctly (@kakou). I've got another problem with many arduinos clone... lag/freeze with buttons (flips don't move or keep in high level, you have to push another time). Please continue to share your experience. thx
  5. unfortunately, Nope ! You need another controler specificaly for adressable leds. Personnaly, I'm using a WEMOS D1 MINI PRO (you can find one on ebay for 5~10€) with a modified and adaptated code from Teensy. I have the same result than a teensy here some links - http://www.pincabpassion.net/t5535-tuto-pilotage-de-ledstrip-adressable-style-teensy-via-wemos-d1-pro (sorry, it's in french) - https://github.com/aetios50/PincabLedStrip
  6. @tjc02002 i'm very interested to test your wip version !
  7. Hi everybody, I just want to know how I can use my colorisation to test it ? Where I put the .pal and the .fsq ? (ie : /Visual Pinball/VPinMame/ altcolor ?) ... i don't speak about Stern SAM's ROM, but the others (Williams, Data East, etc...) I can't find a tutorial about it ! It isn't clear Thx
  8. @maurilio911 you need doflinx to have dof activated with future pinball. Have you tested with visual pinball ?
  9. You can first try it with simpleledtest.exe (from Ledblinky). If you get it work with this, it will work with DOF
  10. Hello @ZZLLabnip, I'm actually using the shift index SHIFT_SWITCH_INDEX, but it doesn't match with number of the Arduino PIN... You have to count your mapping index to identify your hotkey. So with this mapping, the key would be the 14th in the list, so KEY-P ! (don't ask me why, I'm completely useless in coding) You have to know that if you activate this "hotkey" function , the primaray function of the key will be lost... so in this example, the key "P" doesn't work because it's the hotkey now. Normally, every key assignment are activated by Arduino Port in the mapping file from Kakou GITHUB. Ypou can't create more because, there are bugs with analogs port (that doesn't work at all, like the joypad button)
  11. @JeanDrEaD unfortunately, arduinos with ch340 aren't compatible with this flashing procedure,. Sorry
  12. If you speak about The Pinscape, the controller is a FRDM-KL25Z. You can get more information on the website here : https://www.nxp.com/products/processors-and-microcontrollers/arm-based-processors-and-mcus/kinetis-cortex-m-mcus/l-seriesultra-low-powerm0-plus/freedom-development-platform-for-kinetis-kl14-kl15-kl24-kl25-mcus:FRDM-KL25Z
  13. @UncleSashOk, so here is my idea, I draw it on Autocad because that's the only software I know... So with my explanation - I put the FETs like that because I think about some heat problems with gear by example. with this type of organization, we can put a dissipator on one or several FETs - You have the 16 keyboard inputs - the 8 buttons for joypad (depends if they can work, if not, we delete them) - I draw the wemos at scale so normaly that fit exactly like I draw it (just wait yours to confirm that - I draw terminals for the three WEMOS data PIN and the GND (i realized, there is 4 resistance 220, we just need 3... ) I don't know if it's realisable like that, just keep me inform if you need something DWG File
  14. For me, we have one block of 8 which is useless (2*8 for keyboard, 1*8 for joystick terminal and just 1 terminal for A4 plunger) I will try to draw something to give my idea. @kakou if you can take a look at the firmware to implement the 8 joypad buttons. If they don't work at all, we can delete them from this project 😉

  16. Great, I ve got some questions so 😉 You don't put the Wemos ? Any chance to have it one the same pcb ? Can you stuck the big terminals each other like the small ones ? How do you separate buttons terminals and uln terminals ? Do you need dimension for the wemos ? Can I suggest a disposition for this new shield ?
  17. I will give a try to your new version Thx @Lucky1
  18. PinballSP himself I tried to update to 2.43 and that didn't work, so I contacted him to find a solution, i've got a problem on a dip switch I repaired, then I could flash my pin2dmd but i can't put to 2.43, only on 2.41
  19. I will share it with you in a Google drive folder. I will send to you the link this evening.
  20. @UncleSash Good Job ! Here is the last Firwmare, I've remapped some buttons, changed the hotkey attribution and switched buttons. I've made a double pack for two type of Arduinos MEGA2560 : - those which have a DFU mode - and without DFU, so the same way that cyclemat explain here (with USBASP etc...) Last Firmware Pack : https://mega.nz/#!t8c3wChI!HYkTybykeWW-CSzzqDcPaVBNcBk8ujmkHTz8YxxihqQ For the DFU mode method, you need also FLIP 3.4.7 to flash the 16U2 chipset https://mega.nz/#!o0NCSARJ!HEXEutTiIVyjaiv-57tuFtO3e1_MweD84-XJ6YPpmyg I will write another How To if necessary, I wrote one but it's in french in Pincab Passion. For those who wants to try, I recommand to buy a Funduino MEGA2560, it has the DFU mode (no need for an USBASP) and works perfectly with this new firmware
