  1. This is considered by many to be the lowest level in Pinball artwork! Of course… You did a great job wildman. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Very nice backglass, Wildman! Is there a recent release of this table, or is this something someone is working on?
  3. You are probably best to revert to the original version of the table. I am away from my computer so I don't have a reference, but from the table top menu item, below Play is an option that allows you to change settings in real time.
  4. Are you using VP 9? If that is the case, there is a separate image for the lit playfield so you will need to scale that one the same way. However, your best bet would be to not scale any of the images themselves, but to change the table dimensions settings in the VP editor. That way, all relevant images will scale the same way.
  5. Version 1.0.0

    This is the Alvin G logo in white and in faded red to yellow
  6. Thanks onevox. I cleaned this up a bit more. The white version has transparent cutouts in the gaps in the letters, so it looks cool when viewed over a table, etc. I tried to post it here in the downloads section , but could not figure out how.
  7. Thank you Thalamus! That is exactly the direction I needed as well. I adjusted the settings as so that there is a little bit of space between the DMD and the edges of the screen, and made it smaller so it fits to the left of the table. It looks great, and requires no adjustments after launching the table. Another tip I learned was to hide the Vpinmame DMD (the original red one) by going into the vpinmame ROM settings and unchecking the checkbox that reads "Show DMD/Display Window". Before I made this change, I was getting two DMDs. Note that these setting are for a desktop computer on a standard HDTV screen (they will be different for my cab). If anyone is interested, these are my desktop PC settings in DmdDevice.ini: [virtualdmd] enabled = true ; virtual dmd stays on top of all other windows stayontop = true ; hide the resize grip hidegrip = true ; ignore the aspect ratio of the rendered dots when resizing ignorear = false ; x-axis of the window position left = 50 ; y-axis of the window position top = 70 ; width of the dmd in monitor pixels width = 512 ; height of the dmd in monitor pixels height = 128
  8. I've been able to make the orange one go away by going to the settings on the back glass and making the DMD not visible. I still can't figure out how to make the size and position settings stay for the colorized ones though.
  9. Is there documentation about how to use BSPatch? I think I am almost there, but I get an error in the command prompt that: 'bspatch' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Does this make sense? How do I install or use bspatch?
  10. I am totally interested in having a color DMD display (not real dot matrix, using a 15 inch LCD monitor), but am totally confused about how to proceed!Can someone direct me to a tutorial about how to setup PIN2DMD for Visual Pinball using a 3 computer screen setup?
    It is great to have these options for 2 and 3 screens. I reviewed them all (I have a 3 screen setup) and chose '3 screen with marquee'. They are all excellent though! Great job Chucky! Please keep up the great work.
  11. Great to see this simple misunderstanding fixed!
  12. Very nice Chucky! I love these options. I use the 3 screen with marquee. Thanks!
  13. You have all the skills that I have. My advice… start small. Get yourself a few monitors and a PC with a decent graphics card and see if you can get the technology to work. You can also get an X arcade controller (not necessary but I did and really enjoyed it). If you are comfortable with all of this, you'll be in great shape going forward. The physical cabinet and hardware are just details after that. You can test/add/remove hardware options for plungers, speakers, etc. as you are comfortable and you can afford.
  14. If a wildman backglass is available, there's a 99.9% chance that's the one I'm using. I usually even bother to look at the other options.
