    Decided to make a new palette for Default colors to change the basic coloring. I think it fits the theme pretty well and works with the colorizations I have done. Now to keep get these dynamic scenes figure out.

    It keeps progressing. I have been hung up trying to get one of the scenes that disolves into another to work in a way that I like. I have 95% of it but the first part doesn't launch right. I still need to try and use some of the advanced editing methods posted here to try and get the dynamic scenes done, but that is a small portion of scenes compared to the main videos that come up.

    Thought this might be a fun customization to the Say No to Drugs screen.

    Thanks Steve. Makes me wonder if my 32bit java was out of date for the last update of the editor. Not an issue now as I have the 64bit version running and it did create both files. Thanks for your help.

    I've never been able to get the 64bit version to get past the original launch screen box. So I have been using the 32bit version. I tried launching the previous version dated 18May2018 and it too is now not making the .fsq file when exporting for a real pin. It worked earlier yesterday before downloading the newest version. It's got me scratching my head.

    Downloaded the newest 32bit editor and when I exported my lastest update to test, I noticed that only a .pal file was created and not the .fsq. Is this a change from the previous version? Thank you for all you do to keep making it better.

    Here is a more complete Attract Mode Video. If I could only figure out how to do masks and the dynamic scenes where animations are behind scores or words, I think this project could be done in a very short time.

    I have finally decided the time to come to actually get some keyframes made and see if I can get them to work in the game. First I removed the SD card from the dmd since I couldn't access it when connecting the USB to my laptop. I made a backup of the 2 original files and then copied over my pal and sfq files. I then restarted the dmd and saw that for the most part, the keyframes worked pretty well. I really like the new attract screen scroll. With this successful first test, I have started adding more keyframes. Most have worked pretty well, some not so much, but I am encouraged going forward. I will try and make a better video showing more colorizatoins such as my custome Hole in One or No Hole in One scenes.

    I noticed this too about a month ago and a few updates ago. So this is still happening with the lastest update?

    Well this was a nightmare. If I hadn't accidentally seen a window that launched behind everything that was open trying to make this work, I would never have noticed it was having compatibility issues. I ran the windows 8 compatibility and it selected one that actually allowed ST Link to connect. Windows can be a major pain in the ... But the instructions didn't describe any of what I had to do to get this done. Now back to being confused about trying to get the colorizing done and hopefully uploaded some time.

    I was using a USB mini cord connected to the USB mini connector. I have used the USB micro connector when I did my dumps to do my colorizations, so I do know the difference. So unless the USB mini requires a specific kind of mini cord, which doesn't seem to make sense since it actually installed the drivers when it was connected to my laptop, or there is some issue with the ST Link software on my Windows 8.1 laptop, I have no idea where to go or if I can update my firmware to 2.5. I appreciate your time and help trying to get this to work for me, but it sure doesn't seem as easy as the instructions describe. Thank you again for any help you can give.

    Spent an hour trying to get the ST Link to launch to install the updated firmware and was never able to get it to connect. When first connected it looked like it was installing the drivers. This is very confusing and frustrating. I am also no longer able to try and view my colorization scenes on the DMD as it comes up with an error message. No idea where to go next with this.
  13. Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    As I am getting close to wanting to test my colorization for Tee'd Off, I see that my firmware is still 2.41 from when I first bought and installed my pin2dmd last summer. I am thinking before I try and upload my colorization, I should first update the firmware. I have downloaded the latest 2.54 firmware, but since I have never updated my 2.41, do I need to do the firmware update with 2.54 via USB? After that, would I then just remove the SD card from the display, insert it into my laptop and copy the upd file onto to update the firmware in the future? Thanks for the help. Getting excited to see all the hours of colorizing finally come to life.

    Hello Joerg, Thank you for the reply. I think things are getting close to trying to create the keyframes to trigger the scene changes for the scenes I have colorized. I have not been able to get a grip of using the ColMask mode to try and do the dynamic scenes where scores or values are on screen with an animation however. Is it possible to try and make keyframes for what I have colorized so far and add the dynamic scenes later? Also, I was looking at my version of firmware when my machine started yesterday and I noticed that it must have been version 2.41 when the display was made and shipped to me. Do I need to update this prior to trying to import the custom files to the SD card? If so, are there updated instructions about how to update the firmware, the pdf files I downloaded when I first got my pin2dmd are dated and the links in the firmware thread no longer work. Thanks again for all your patience and help. Tim

    Wow. Some great progress with the editor tonight. It has helped me compelete my colorization to what I am able to do. I still haven't figured out how to do the scenes with dynamic scoring or masking. I also, could use some help with making keyframes and finally uploading it back into my DMD. This new editor sure helped colorize faster and find missed or skipped areas!! Original colorizing effort (which I think looked pretty poor) New pasting of actual graphic (which I think look pretty great) Thanks for all the great work.
