  1. Pin2Dmd Editor

    Thanks lucky1. That all makes sense.. I'll re-read pin2dmd.com. The problem is when I read it I had no idea and I don't think much sunk in... I have re-read parts of it since.
  2. Pin2Dmd Editor

    I've been trying to tackle the steep learning curve to do some colourisation... so far I haven't had much success. Reading through this entire thread, the guide and watching Stefan's YouTube videos seems to answer some questions for me but confuse me with others. I have a some questions that hopefully someone can quickly answer and I'll keep trying to move along with this. I have the latest version or Pin2DMD editor (I believe) but I don't have the "Apply" button that seems to be in everything I look at. Should it be there? Do I need to have the Pin2DMD connected to be able to export a project (I currently don't as I am not doing the editing on my cab)? I have coloured 3 scenes and I was hoping to export the project and test it to make sure what I am doing is correct but when I attempt to export the project I get a message that says "Please don't publish projects with copyrighted material / frames" but nothing exports. I have coloured the scenes that I have done using the "Replace" method which seems to be a slow way of doing it but it's the only way so far I have gotten it to colour how I want. That is probably due to me not knowing what I am doing but when I use other methods I don't seem to be able to get the colours I want or when I chose the colour and then click on a pixel in the image the colour does match what I have selected. I do have another question which doesn't change anything but am curious to know. Why to use the editor do you need to have a Pin2DMD license? Wouldn't it be better to not require licensing if it's hoped that more people in the community help the project along?
  3. SAMBuild2.9 beta thread

    I just downloaded the latest dmddevice.dll and the flickering is still there... it is more flashing then flickering now though.
  4. SAMBuild2.9 beta thread

    I have a problem with seemingly all Stern ROMS with this version as all of the ones I can actually get to load flicker badly. I can't get this to load AC/DC at all though so I could have something wrong.

    I have a dead pixel in mine.. it is in the top row and not noticeable most of the time.
  6. Pin2Dmd Pyprocgame Support?

    Has anyone progressed with this yet?
  7. Pin2Dmd - Table Support

    Thanks for the advice. I'll keep trying. As for it being covered in multiple threads, I haven't found it, I have searched but I don't seem to be able to find much when I search on this forum... Not sure what I am doing wrong.
  8. Pin2Dmd - Table Support

    Ok so this is confusing for me.... bspatch (This is the exe) SH0141e.bin (This is the original bin file) SH0141e_c.bin (This is the new bin file that I am creating) SH0141e_c.diff (What is this file? Where does it come from? How do I get it for tables that haven't been colourised yet?) My plan was to create some ROM's that use 16 shades so that the roms that have not yet been colourised still look ok rather than looking like parts are missing.
  9. Can I PM you too??? I am interested in having a look at it too.
  10. New Pin2DMD user has questions

    Thanks Lucky1. I had a bit of a look at this with my son and he has suggested that perhaps it isn't only a size thing which I was working off (in fact size my be the lesser problem), but on these games the Pin2DMD seems to be more aggressive in adding the brighter colour to the image which means a saturation of sorts and I am inclined to agree with him. We chose some pretty horrible but contrasting colours and could easily see that in some instances the 100% colour would appear in areas that it shouldn't (if that makes sense). My son has no knowledge of Vpinball at all let alone VPinMame but looked at the code and said that he wouldn't mind having a tinker with it to see whether changing the algorithm to be less aggressive with the colour palette would overcome the problem but we don't know how we can test it.
  11. Pin2Dmd Future Pinball Support

    Thank you
  12. New Pin2DMD user has questions

    Thanks for the response. Would there be a way to change the image that is sent to Pin2DMD? Would it be possible to modify the outputs in the future so that it worked?
  13. Stern Roms Colors?

    Did you ever work this out AndersE? I am at this point now and would like to know what to do.
  14. Pin2Dmd Future Pinball Support

    When I try to download the FP-Intercept.zip file all I get is an empty zip file. Is there somewhere else I can download this from?

    Thanks for the advice. I thought I had tried that and it told me that the file was not found but I'll try again. I must have done something wrong.
