  1. Hello, I have been on this site for a couple months now learning and listening, I am in the process of putting a plan together for my virtual cabinet and I believe the last component is the DMD display. I am very interested in the colorizations and have been playing with the PIN2DMD Editor for a couple weeks. I began coloring the Royal Rumble rom as I have a real Royal Rumble pin and my hope would be to colorize the real pin as well. I have a couple questions if you don't mind helping a newbie out? The first is are there any Royal Rumble WIP's out there? I would hate to step on anyone's toes? Secondly, as I do not have a PIN2DMD built yet I have been doing everything on the editor exclusively and I have no idea if I am doing this correctly? or how to handle the "dynamic" content? I have watched the tutorials online but they only help so much, I believe there are some things I am not comprehending. If I shared my Royal Rumble XML project, would any of the more experienced community members be willing to offer assistance to guide my efforts? Thanks in advance, this site has been extremely helpful!
  2. So, I've moved onto the next colorization while DJrobX is tweaking the keyframing on Royal Rumble.........Star Wars Data East Time! I got all of the attract mode colored and moving on to the gameplay, this DMD is not as intense as Royal Rumble (I Hope!) So I'm hoping to finish in a month maybe two...depending on the family schedule. Here are some scenes to tide everyone over, Thanks!
  3. Good Afternoon, I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season so far! I have decided to release the project for real pins as is....neither myself or Rob have had the time to correct the remaining challenges as of yet. You will find that the last reported errors in my previous posts still remain, however this project is more than playable and a lot of time and effort has gone into this! I hope to revisit the remaining errors after the holidays when more time is available, please enjoy the colorization and a big shout out to all those who assisted in it's completion! Have a Happy Holiday! Please feel free to report any challenges or bugs so they can be addressed, Thanks Again! Star Wars.fsq Star Wars.pal
  4. Yeah.....I second that! Rob hurry back ........lol
  5. SOON!!!!!! It's got to meet my quality standards before I release the final version, working on ironing out the last few keyframing challenges! Patience Padowans!
  6. Colorization is complete! I am releasing another beta version I can't remember if this is 2 or 3....lol Remember to rename the files "pin2dmd" and place in the correct alt_color folder. The project is playable and about 80% complete, there are some known key framing challenges those scenes are listed below: Cantina Jabba X-Wing Millions Super Death Star AT-AT's I also believe the Sarlaac scene will need to have more frames cut in order to be perfect (after 130, I needed a break...lol). I will finish up the last chapter on the editor tutorial in the next couple of weeks then I'll be taking a break from coloring. DJRobX is going to look at the keyframing challenges I am having and hopefully solve, in the mean time ENJOY!!! Star Wars.vni Star Wars.pal
  7. Thank You DeBarto, I believe I have gotten a lot of use out of your dumps from your project!
  8. Thank You MartDes, I believe you have saved the day sir!
  9. As I am nearing the completion of this project, there are still a couple of loose ends to tie up and I'm hoping the community could assist me? Between the intense level of detail in these DE games and having three small children at home and a full time career my time is extremely limited...lol I need a couple of animations to complete the game, mainly the "Stormtrooper Shootout" there are multiple animations that display if you "fail" at this task...2, 3, 4 and 5 troopers can remain left standing and will shoot at you if this happens. I have had trouble getting the scenes to trigger because they are kind of random. If any one could assist in dumping these scenes for me that would be awesome! as an update I have 51 frames of the AT-AT scene left to color (out of 152)....lol that's the last scene and then there are some keyframing challenges to sort out, again if anyone would like to assist in problem solving these challenges please let me know....I will say they are advanced level keyframing challenges so be warned! lol Thanks!
  10. Hello, I've had my cabinet built for a couple months now and one thing that has really got me frustrated is the playfield TV loses input signal quite regularly making it practically impossible to play. If I switch the HDMI ports it will solve the problem for a short time but it will resurface. I'm pretty positive I have the resolutions set right and I'm running at 60mhz. I have an insignia 1080p TV and it is brand new. The TV will just automatically start scrolling through the inputs looking for a signal before turning off or restarting, this problem occurs while using pinball x or just the PC itself. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this or where I should start looking? Thanks

    Pin2DMD Editor Tutorial

    Hi Everyone, I thought now would be a good time to share some of the things I've learned working with the editor this past year. We do not really have a thorough tutorial or manual available to help beginners get into coloring DMD's. I have completed the first 3 chapters of what will be a continuing document of resource material to help anyone color their favorite DMD's. My hope is that there is enough detail in this tutorial to get you started and comfortable working with the editor, which can be a bit overwhelming at times. I will continue to add to this but I wanted to get something out there for the community, maybe this will spur a new wave of artists to join the effort in colorizing all DMD's out there! Before we begin I want to acknowledge a couple members who have helped me get to where I am in this process and are very valuable members of the Vpin comunity. Thanks to Lucky1 for the patience in answering my thousands and thousands of questions probably some I asked multiple times. Thank You, You are the Best! Thanks to DJrobX for shedding the "light" on keyframing for me, I swear It just didn't make any sense to me(for months) until you explained it , Thank You! Thanks to Malenko for inspiring me to want to get involved with your amazing work and the first tutorial you put together though short helped me get started, Thank You! Here is the link to the GDrive, I will also post this in the Tutorials section. Thanks! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-SpwIigih3Hty-bXVyEtLy2O9zr10ihR
  12. Thank You, I will keep you posted. I have one scene left to do the AT-AT bumpers but it is intensive. I haven't had as much time lately as I'd like to work on this so it is a little slow going. It will be completed soon.
  13. Simo, this colorization is not ready for real pinball machines just yet. I will release those files as well as make all the source files public when the colorization is complete. Should still be a couple weeks out yet. Thanks!
  14. I'm not familiar with this movie or the table but the colorization looks great! Your color choices are crisp and provide nice contrast IMO!

    Pin2DMD Editor Tutorial

    Chapter 5: Coloring Dynamic Content is complete and uploaded to the G: Drive. I hope to possibly get to the next chapter on key-framing the dynamic content this weekend. Enjoy!

  17. You could always start your own colorization as well? These projects are very time consuming and can be a tedious project. I appreciate all those who are giving of their time to create these wonderful works of art!
  18. Looks Great! I'd be interested in a vpin version as well!

    Pin2DMD Displays and some parts for sale

    Dan got me setup with three devices and they were all TOP NOTCH QUALITY and LOOK AMAZING! He ships fast and also helps with setup if you need, I highly recommend him if you need a pin2dmd!
  20. Here is Beta version 2. This is still a WIP and I probably overestimated how much I have done, I ended up cutting a lot more scenes since my last update. Good news is I do believe I have ALL the animations in the game cut now. Coloring is about 50% complete and I have been key-framing as I go, so this is probably about halfway complete. There are still some bugs to work out but it is as always playable. Additions in this version: Speeder Mode Multipliers Match (90% working) Taun Taun Lit As always be sure to rename files to "pin2dmd" and place in correct alt_color folder. Enjoy!

  21. You need to get the newest firmware off Lucky's github. v2.56 isn't able to run the larger projects like this one.
  22. Looking good, keep it up! If you'd like any assistance key-framing i'm willing to assist.
  23. This is the most labor intensive scene I've done to date....but I think it was worth it!

    TV loses input signal

    Thanks randr! I couldn't figure out how to reset the video card but I did delete the driver and had windows reinstall and it is working more stable right now (no loss of signal all day), fingers crossed it stays that way!
