  1. Hi @TerryRed Great work on all your addressable LED videos and the spreadsheet. I built myself a 2 x 70 x row beacon matrix and was wondering what I can enter into the table configs to use the MX Beacon Toy Where do I start? What would you recommend I do to use it as I see 0 tables use that toy? Daren
  2. Hi All I have been trying to figure this out now for a few weeks. I have to reach out for help. Here are the facts I have a Teensy that works well with Arduino testing. It is on COM3 as per the screen shot attached. It works when I test the Example files so COM3 is a goer. I have flashed the ROM on Teensy from https://github.com/DirectOutput/TeensyStripController/releases by downloading the file, opening in the TeensyProgram, pressing auto and loading the file and it says OK to reboot. Teensyprogramming.png I have unblocked all DLLs I have installed DOF under c:/directoutput I have removed DofLinx until I can get it sorted I dont have ANY other devices other than the Teensy I have am using all channels of Teensy. 71 x 6 (channels 1-6) for Matrix and 2 x 71 (channels 7 & 8 ) for right and left sides. Tried with Firewall On/Off - Re-installed Windows 10 My only hunch is that the flash of Teensy did not work?? Here is the issue Check out the video - 1. I open the Config tester and select the GlobalConfig_B2sServer.xml file and it opens 2. I then try to open Cabinet and it crashes with this error. 2019.03.25 14:22:31.665 Initializing cabinet 2019.03.25 14:22:31.665 Debug: Initializing output controllers 2019.03.25 14:22:31.681 TeensyStripController TeensyStripController intialized and updater thread started. 2019.03.25 14:22:31.681 Debug: Output controllers initialized 2019.03.25 14:22:31.697 TeensyStripController TeensyStripController updater thread started. 2019.03.25 14:22:31.697 Cabinet initialized 2019.03.25 14:22:31.697 Loading shape definition file: C:\DirectOutput\Config\DirectOutputShapes.xml 2019.03.25 14:22:31.728 Framework initialized. 2019.03.25 14:22:31.728 Have fun! 2019.03.25 14:22:32.337 EXCEPTION: TeensyStripController TeensyStripController updater thread could not connect to the controller.

  3. Hi, I have installed DirectOutput R2 but cannot find the 'DirectOutput PinballX Plugin.dll' file. Where can I get this?
  4. No puns, but my balls don't look right.. In like an Axis mode. How can I change this? Thanks!
  5. Its very cool indeed. I have one question though. I will be having the strips down the side and the matrix at the back. Are the strips down the side and back matrix two different data circuits or do I wire them all together? If so will one Octo2811 and one Teensy do it? If I wire them all together is there a certain direction I need to go? For example starting at the plunger then zig zag across the matrix then down to the to the side near the start button? Does that make sense? Hope this makes sense Lol!
  6. Hi all I wish to create an 8 strip RGB LED array using Addressable LEDs, Teensy and DOF. I see Teensy is Tiny! Does anyone know where I can get a more robust solution (that can be mounted in cabinet) with maybe PSU for the 3.3 v? Or is that part of the fun?
