  1. A repair actually worked after a reboot! Hopefully I can help rather than ask next time
  2. Although the problems do continue Example - America's Most Haunted Load table - error VB Script - No UltraDMD found - I attempt to run anyway and then a Script Error - Line 743, Object Required UltraDMD Tried ensuring my UltraDMD is loaded first - no joy The table is in the same folder as the.GIF pack
  3. Sorted it - via Regedit - was set to hide / true - changed to false All good Phew!
  4. Rather than start a new thread - thought best to follow on from here My Ultra DMD ran fine on my old PC - however I cannot get it to start at all following a new installation on my new PC I have downloaded the VP5 set-up, all folders installed and got the colour DMD's all working fine (which I thought would be the difficult bit!) I downloaded the UltraDMDSetup.msi - installed successfully in my C/ Program files (x86) however the UltraDMD.exe will not launch. I have tried launching it from my Visual Pinball / XDMD folder - will not launch there either. Double click and nothing appears (also tried running as an admin) So exhausted I actually set-up my old PC and and saved the UltraDMD and XDMD set-up files from there (testing they still ran when the . exe selected - it did!) and sent them over to my new PC to be copied and pasted there - again no joy Looked up some articles - tried to register it via running file:///C:/WINDOWS/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v2.0.50727/RegASM UltraDMD.exe But states file not found?? The CMD (as admin) states "ultradmd.exe is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file At a loss what to do - obviously I feel I am missing a simple trick here I have also tried running the UltraDMD repair and a re-installation - no joy EDIT - Would add that I also re-installed into my Visual Pinball folder rather than the Program File (x86) folder - still did not work. Also deleted any registry entry associated with UltraDMD Any help more than appreciated
  5. Hope someone can help, I am usually ok with setting up emulators (MAME, WinUAE, DosBox, etc) and although I have installed Visual Pinball fine with the tables and the ROM displays loading up fine, it is with the colour DMD's I am having a problem with. I should point out that I don't have a cab, just playing the tables on a normal desktop PC I am running VPinMAME 2.8 which I believe is the minimum requirement and I can use the colorized DMD's (4 colours) which work fine, it is with the External DMD's I have a problem with. I will hold up my hands and admit I don't have a freakin' clue! I never want to get to the point of asking for help and admitting defeat, but I am at that point. Looked up loads, downloaded files, but not exactly sure what to do! From what I think.... 1. I have got the altcolour files, which are in my pinmame file. Each file in the altcolour folders contains a pin2dmd.pal 2. Downloaded The Simpsons Pinball Party Color ROM patch on this site (Vpin TSPP) which holds pin2dmd.pal and pin2dmd.vni - I put these in the altcolour folder headed simpprty 3. Checked Use Extrenal DMD in VPinMAME Result - nothing! I used the VPinMAME test for The Simpsons Pinball Party for the ROM set simpprty (same name as altcolour) and passed, but held a PIN2DMD not found error - but still loaded up (but not in colour) I am guessing this is the root of the problem. A lot of the stuff I have read about PIN2DMD relates to people with their own cabs and maybe it cannot work on emulation using a desktop PC? I did download some PIN2DMD files from GitHub and the .exe opens up (PIN2DMD v2.50 ColorPRISM) and tried running again, but no joy. I am at a loss! From reading info, not sure if I have to patch the original ROM? So I obtained the VPUColourROMPatcher utility, but when I extract any of the zipped ROM files, there is no .bin file there? So unable to patch anything - plus do I need to do this if there Colour ROM patches already available to download on this site? I know it's like spoon feeding a baby here! Tried to be as descriptive as possible and I really hope someone can feed this baby and help out (before the crying starts!) and would be happy to make a donation afterwards - my word is my bond!
