  1. While I'm not into VP, I do have a couple of real pinball machines with Getaway being one of them. A couple of years ago I bought a PinSound for it, and I've been an evangelist for the product ever since. Anyway, I know that many VP enthusiasts have incorporated PinSound, so I wanted to announce the release of my latest Getaway orchestration to the community. This one is full techno, and I've had several positive compliments on it. If you are interested, you may download my v10 full techno mix or any other of my Getaway orchestrations for free at http://pinsound-community.org/forum/index.php?/files/category/22-getaway
  2. People will love you for the hitchhiker color. One of the big complaints on Getaway ColorDMD is that she didn't match. Out to lunch right now, but will test and provide feedback later this afternoon.
  3. I will test today. BTW, forgot to mention on my .05 notes on match game that at the very end of the animation the match score (large font bottom center) changes colors (I think it goes from either white or yellow to red). Don't know if this is by design or not, but thought I would mention it.
  4. Just finished playing several games with .5, and have some feedback. - The match game looks really good. There is some minor ghosting on police car (flashes some red colors within it at times). This "ghosting" seems rather typical on Getaway. - The default mask is needs some more color to it besides just red and white. I really liked the yellow you had before, but I understand that you don't want to mimic ColorDMD. Maybe you could play with some different combinations or colors switched around in the mask. - Didn't notice colorization of 4th gear. - Didn't notice colorization of Lambo wipes
  5. Not sure you want feedback yet given that things are so early, but I did want to share two things: 1) So far, I love it! Man, this pin really deserves a colorized DMD, and the little you've done so far looks great on it. 2) I like the colorization mask for the main display (e.g. player score, speed, etc.) I did notice that when the speed goes from two to three digits that the additional digit to the left (e.g. the "1" in 120MPH) takes on the color of what is left of it and not of the rest of the speed display. I know you have other projects going, and this will be something you work on as you have time. However, like I've said before, I'm super excited about any progress you make and I'm happy to help however I can. Whether that's just testing and providing feedback as you release updates or doing any of the manual frame colorization grunt work if there is a helpful way for me to do so.
  6. Thanks all. I spent a little time last night refiguring things out, so think I'm back in the groove. Just wanted to review what Malenko had done so far, even though I know very early/limited.
  7. I need to get myself reacquainted with everything PIN2DMD. I know what the .pal file is, but what is the .vni file? I assume both are required for proper operation? Also, my first effort just produces based color: white, red, cyan. Contents of my SD card are: pin2dmd.dat (set to Williams & VGA) pin2dmd.key PIN2DMD.pal (from your link) PIN2DMD.vni (from your link) Is there supposed to be a PIN2DMD.fsq file? I know that my previous colorization worked (well the things that I had done correctly appeared in full color), so not sure what is up. Do I need to upgrade firmware or anything on my display? When booting display shoes v2.54.
  8. I deserve no credit, but thanks for the gesture. I failed at my attempt and succumbed to outside pressures forcing me to give up - which still irks me. Anyway, I know it is early, but I will do all that I can to help test and provide feedback as you progress on your own timetable. Also, glad you splintered off a new thread for a clean start.
  9. Please link us to the new thread if/when you start it.
  10. right now I am running my Pin2DMD in my Getaway but I have the color set to red at about 1/2 brightness. It goes much better with the red of the machine than the default DMD orange color.
  11. Unfortunately, I've not been able to make any progress, and those others who have undertaken the venture have seemed to have stalled as well. What I'm gathering is that even thought the Getway was a tremendous hit and there are countless ones out there, the DMD coding must be a little more difficult than most.
