    Great! Thanks Wildman!

    And... Scared Stiff 1.4 vs. 1.31 was a drop from 18ms to 1.3 ms. Amazing!
  3. SAMBuild3.1 beta thread

    Whoa! Thanks for explaining that to me, slydog43! MAJOR DIFFERENCE! I checked this on my desktop PC, and am seeing 0.2- 0.3 ms to rotate, whereas it was 20 something before. I still need to check this out on my cab, which has a lesser graphics card, more monitors, etc. Specifically, I have an i7, 16GB RAM, GTX 1050 on my single monitor desktop. An i7, 16GB RAM, GTX 960 on my 3 monitor cab.
  4. SAMBuild3.1 beta thread

    I think I've done this all correctly. Is there a way to test to confirm fast flips is working? What specific behaviour am I looking for?

    Awesome as you'd expect coming from Wildman.
  6. Awesome! Great job, wildman (as always!!).

    Great... thanks Wildman!
  8. I recently ran the VPX4 allinone installer, and tried to just update vpinmame, etc. That was my first mistake
  9. I think I had several unneccesary folders within my vpinmame folder. I am using a third PC monitor for my DMD display. I believe through a variety of installers, mishaps, etc. I had the following folders in my vpinmame folder that weren't needed... they are: DMDExt, PIN2DMD, PinDMD1, PinDMD2, and PinDMD3. I deleted those. I'm not sure what all caused what, but things seem to running much better now. For example, I had problems with sound stutter that have gone away.
  10. Thanks BambiPlattfuss and lucky1... I made those changes and it is working! One mistake that I made was installing DMDExt, when all that I really needed to do was move the dmddevice.dll and dmddevice.ini files to my vpinmame directory. As you pointed out, I was editing the dmddevice.dll and dmddevice.ini files in the wrong place (in an unnecessary DMDext folder). I don't know if there is an official install guide (I haven't found one for my configuration, at least), but senseless wrote up a wiki at vpinball that could use some updating. I'm happy to document my leanings if there is an official thread for this. I'll update senseless's post, since it is a wiki and designed to be contributed to.
  11. dmddevice.dll and dmddevice.ini are both in vpinmame\DMDext\ What gets me is that I can see that everything about DMDExt seems to be running great -- except for the fact that all of the DMDs are the red dots, and the resizing handle is white dots. It's like it doesn't see or recongnize the pin2dmd.pal files. Is there another place I should post this question, or someone I could message directly?
  12. As the title suggests, I recently upgraded VPX to the official 10.4 release, downloaded and installed the vpinmame 3.0 SAM release. Everything seemed to work great, except any colorized DMD didn't show color anymore. I believe DMDExt is running properly, because the DMD display looks like it, and has the white triangle resizing tab on the bottom right corner. I found and installed the dmdext 1.6 update from github, but that doesn't seem to change anything. The pin2dmd.pal files are all in their right folders (named according to the rom names), in the altcolor folder in vpinmame, etc. As I said, it all worked great before the updates. I've reinstalled vpinmame multiple times, restarted everything (including the PC), and have confirmed the rom setttings. Any ideas??
  13. Hi 1computertyler and ninuzzu. I'm trying to follow the thread and have an error similar to 1computertyler. Everything seems to work fine with the code, the sounds and dmd, however, when I try to start a game, it keeps searching for a ball and won't start a game. From the conversation, it looks like maybe there was something to do with the version of core.vbs. I am using the core.vbs from 3240... sholuld I be using a different version? Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Great work as always, Wildman! Thanks for this and others.
  15. Great to see this triumphant return of the legendary Groni!
