    rev r4638 2nd start problems

    It was the file coming from the 2.55 version of the pin2dmd git-hub section (my pin2dmd firmware is 2.55) Also tried it with the latest 2.58 version (both firmware and .dll) but same effect. When I do the new install I will use the standard pin2dmd dmddevice.dll which comes with the all-in 1 installer but what I do not know is with what firmware version is corresponds... therefore I did use the dmd file from the corresponding firmware version. Is there any benefit of using Freezy with a pin2dmd display?

    rev r4638 2nd start problems

    Mmmm....from memory: All the xx30 rev's did have the crash error. What I experienced with the latest rev 4738 that it runs with the color enabled the first time but not the 2nd time (as described above). I do not know if that was the case as well with older xx30 rev's but I am sure that the xx20 rev's did not have this problem. But now...after the Freezy test-install pinmame crashes immediately even the first time (even with the xx20 versions) and I couldn't get it back to work so now I'm totally installing a complete new build including WinX and VPX...... What I will do: install a fresh WinX and a fresh VPX first without any additions like DOF or Lucky's dll or whatsoever and build it up from there and test every step and see at what time it is going wrong. (if the new build has the same problem). Will report back but can take a while as I'm not at my cab for the next 3,5 weeks but will come back to you, thank you for the support!

    rev r4638 2nd start problems

    Thanks for testing. I did not have freezy's extention as I am told that it has no benefit when you use a pin2dmd-display. Nevertheless I installed it, but I couldn't get the real pin2dmd to work, only the virtual dmd which was looking 'freezy's ' (other pixel-shape) so that worked. I did check the freezy's ini file to see if the pin2dmd was enabled but it was enabled by default. Then I wanted to revert back to the working standard situation and...now nothing works at all anymore. Time to do a total Windos X and VPX install......

    SAMBuild3.2 beta thread

    Wow...thank you guys for your help and the update. As I don't want to waste this thread (more then I already did) I started a new thread in the general tab, see 'rev4638 2nd start problems' in 'Pinmame development' thanks!
  5. **note** this thread is a continu from the official beta 3.2 thread as I didn't want to spoil it more with my findings and questions.** Reason for my postings in the official thread was that pinmame startin with the xx30 rev's and further on are having the problem that pinmame fully crashes when starting a rom. No warning, no sings...crash. This only happens when the external pin2dmd is active. Disabeling it and having the virtual display will run the rom's fine (so it's not a rom issue). Now....about this 4638 version (thanks guys for your help and very fast response) Something weird but I can reproduce the error now. Ok...here it is: after copying the new .dll into pinmame dir and running pinmame/test my test-rom works out very well. (TZ94CH) Pressing start gives the note in pinmame that it is running and the pin2dmd shows the TZ graphics. But.....running a 2nd time the rom (press stop and directly start) is impossible: a direct hard crash of pinmame back to Win10. Starting pinmame again and running the test won't help: a direct crash. Now....rebooting the PC (soft reboot is fine) and starting pinmame / test : everything fine the 1st time but 2nd time the same. And now something more interesting: For this TZ94CH rom I enabled the color option in the F3 game menu. I do not have full color for it but a nice white graphics to a black background . pal file (see attachment). When I rename the TZ94CH alt color directory (where the pal file is in) to a weird name so that pinmame can not find it and I restart pinmame/test: Everyting is fine! The color option in the game menu is still on but, as it can not find the directory it will display some kind of orange colors but stopping and running and stopping and running...everything is fine. So it seems to be a combination of using a .pal file and running pinmame a second time. ** Edit: tested an other ROM-with-pal-file (term3) : same problem: after reboot first time ok, 2nd time crash, only reboot will help. Thanks again so far! pin2dmd.pal

    Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    No problem, thanks for the link. I was thinking about the pin2dmd firmware as when disabeling it in pinmame the table does start but it is a total of a chain and if one thing in the chain doesn't work...the whole chain won't...so...will go check it out.

    Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Hi Lucky, can I ask for your support on this please: Since the latest updates on Pinmame it will crash when using the rom's or trying to play a machine. So, going into pinmame itself, press test, choose a rom, enable use external dll (for the pin2dmd) and press run: I see the pin2dmd light go very dim and then pinmame exits without warning. Checking the ROM-set itself says that the rom is ok and pinmame is able to use it but running it will crash pinmame. Now... up to Pinmame Version r3.2 v4621 there was no problem but upgrading from there with either r4635 or the latest r4637 does not work, giving the behaviour as said. Disabeling the 'use external display' will make it possible to run the same rom with a virtual dmd on screen. Tested with afm113b and tz94hc, ij_l7 but up to now can not make it work, random other roms do not work as well. After having this issue I did a complete new install of my total harddisk (to clean up everything as well) and also installed Win10 (coming from Win7) Installed the all-in-1 VPX ,installed the latest sam , checked it, problem as described. (not even starting VPX itself, first checking SAM) Then I downloaded the latest pin2dmd drivers from grithub, copied dmddevice.dll to pinmame, copied the xdmd files and installed the latest firmware to the pin2dmd (2.58) but no succes, same problem. Also checked at91jit (as my previous problem) but that value is 0. any clue? Thanks for the support,
  10. WOW..... fantastic add-on for a fantastic table. Have a drink! Cheers!

    Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    THANK YUO, THANK YOU!!!! It's 'alive' again...!! Did a lot of testing and came down to this one problem: - in the pinmame test/run rom everything was fine. Perfect colors on pin2dmd. When running Metall. in VPX table and BG showed up but then it -hard- crashes to Windows. When using the same rom but just disabeling the colorize function the table does start. Using a non-colorized ROM but enabeling the colorize option did work to but not the nice colors of the real colorized ROM. Now, then I did the updates you suggested (pin2dmd firmware 2.57 shows 2.55 in display and 2.53 in colorprism but ok). Latest pinmame tried it...nothing, same problem. I did not download the seperate .dll from github as I think the .dll in the latest total package is te latest dll (??) But...then I had a look at this at91jitt $#%@$%!thing!! There was a '1' as value. Changed it to 0 and....it takes time before the table starts up but it worked! Put it back to 1 and crash again, rebooted the PC, put it back to 0 and it works again! Now...the only strange thing and question is.... How the h*ck can this value be changed all of a sudden? I defenitely know it was a 0 before (although all my tables worked fine I just did a check, long ago). Only thing I lately changed is that I removed my Geforce card and installed a 1070 NVidea card + drivers.... could that change it? Anyway...it DOES seems that this has been the problem, I did not un-91jit all the entries in the register, but it seems to be a reproduceble error and solution so I guess this it it, thank you again for your help!

    Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Only the pin2dmd .dll, did not install freezy's (would it be any better for pin2dmd?) But also with your .dll it's possible to uncheck 'use external dll' and then when enabeling it on the BGoptions it shows a virtual dmd and the table does start instead of crash. Now, to summerize: for me 2.50 is fine and it works ok but no real color rom's anymore. What I can do is...test it again and see when I change some hardware options (like cables) if it comes back (I wonder), I could try Freezy's .dll to see if that makes any difference and if not I could 'USBcapture' the data when a color rom is set and when VPX crashes. Or if you have an idea pls let me know, thank you!

    Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Hi Lucky, can I ask for support on this... I've been updating everything to the latest...latest pinmame (v3.2 rev 4641), latest VPX (v10.5.3490), latest pindmd (2.57 (although display says 2.55). Now.... a lot of STERN tables do not work anymore: when starting up the BG comes up, table comes up (no lights) and then....few seconds, VPX hard crashes, back to Windows screen. Of course this could be everything but... When I go into the test-function of pinmame itself and I choose game-options, disable external .dll then the table is fine, starting perfect (although no pin2dmd but when I enable it, I can get a virtual display. Now...this might be a sign that there is something with the pin2dmd as disabeling it from the f1 menu (or, as I can not get the table running I change it in the Pinmame test menu). As a test I switched all to non-colorized ROM's. As a wild gues I reverted the pin2dmd software (both firmware and dll to V2.37 (I know...old one) and that worked! Tested 2.45: also ok....2.50..also ok 2.55 does not work for me and also 2.57 does not work anymore. So, with 2.50: now tables start, real colored rom's won't work (but that might also be a pinmame issue) standard colorized option does work. Now...any clue? 1 thing I do not know: I am on Win7 64 bit. Do I need the 64bit dll from the github source? (I tried it but it did not work as well). Tested with: AC/DC Rom : acd_168 Avatar Rom : avr_200 Metallica : mtl_170h color roms for ad/dc and mtl I can not get to work (anymore) with this 2.50 pin2dmd version Thank you!
  14. Hello everybody!

    spagb100 romtest gives a failed to load dll error.

    vinspa says it can use the rom, but dmd screen stays black, and table won‘t start.

    what can be the issue there?

    help is appreciated..

    grtz,

    Pin2Dmd Colorprism V2.0 Firmware

    Update: although 2.55 works now I did not see any color change when I switched to an other pin2dmd.pal file from an other table where I knew the colors where different. So...I removed my VPinspa folder and replaced it with a setup -found- 'somewhere' and now everything is fine, even no problem with the spgb_100 folder and, putting in an other .pal file gives a different colored display so...all good. Thanks for your support!
