  1. This is a copy pasta of the pinside thread :/ Hey kids! Malenko here again starting another Pin2DMD colorization. I figured I'd do another WIP thread to keep me motivated to actually finish it. Ive been color masking a ton of stuff, no need or desire to redraw everything like I did with SF2 , the animations in T2 are actually *REALLY* good. I cant even list all the stuff left to do, but I will attach some animations for things that are done. Done so Far: Test Screen GrandChampion Top Marksmen Shoot again words (not the elevator scene yet) Load the Gun Sequence Shoot for Jackpot Sequence HunterKiller crosshair animation HunterKiller explosion (I will probably take the time to draw the HK stuff by hand) T800 with lightning Bolt in attract mode "Color by Malenko" replacing the say no to drugs screen Free Play / Push Start (will change my machine to coins and capture that too) Arnie holding the shotgun (not firing, yet) Credits (with special shout out!)
  2. Pin2Dmd Order thread

    Hello guys! No need to "preorder" or wait for a groupbuy any more Just klick the link in my signature below and you will find everything you need, Greetings, Dom
  3. So started up on Godzilla, just started today. If things need fixed on T2, Lethal Weapon, or Baywatch, this will get put on hold. LW3 and Baywatch are both being privately tested before release. Looks better than having end users beta test "releases" IMO. 5th colorization, Im getting pretty good at these meow. Recording provided by Rappel. More is done than what is shown in the GIFs (15 scenes in total), I've been doing much better at dynamic palette changes which takes much less time than recoloring scenes when it isnt needed.

  5. Pin2Dmd Editor

    Here is a short introduction to the coloring features of pin2dmd with the editor. There are currently three ways to color a animation. All are controlled by keyframes. The first step is to find a keyframe at the beginning of a animation scene which is unique and hits reproducible. To achieve that you can either use a plane or a combination of plane and mask. 1 of 10 masks can be defined to blank out areas which are dynamic and lead to unreproducible keyframes. To use a masked keyframe you have to activate the Mask checkbox choose or edit one of the masks and assign a keyframe with the Mask checkbox activated. If you found a usable keyframe you can use it to either 1. Simply assign a palette (Add PalSwitch) (same color depth as the original) 2. Start playback of a replacement scene (Add FrameSeq) (16 colors) 3. Add content and/or color information to the scene (Add Color Mask) (16 colors) For a PalSwitch you can assign the duration how long the palette should be active until it switches back to the default palette. You can play forward in your recording and press fetch duration at the point you want to switch back to the default palette. You can change the colors of a palette by ctrl clicking in the color you want to change. To generate a FrameSeq you can cut a existing scene using mark start / mark end / cut. Normally the starting point is equal to the picture used for the keyframe. Then you edit the scene with a 16 color palette. You can change everything here To generate a Color Mask scene you also use mark start / mark end / cut and then activate the ColMask checkbox After that you can also use the edit tools, but the content coming from the recording is not editable but you can modify the colors of areas by assigning a different color group. You have 4 groups of 4 colors here. Colors 1-2-3-4 are the standard/original colors. e.g by drawing with color 5,9 or 13 you change the color of pixels having color 0 etc. Since Color Mask needs to be frame sync to the content coming from PinMame/Real Pinball machine it is the most complicated to be used. Preferably use option 1 or 2 and use option 3 only for scenes with dynamic content like score numbers. Since Version 2.8 the recordings can be done with the official vpinmame build by creating a DmdDump folder in the folder where vpinmame.dll is located and activating both Show DMD and Use external DMD in the tables option menu. To load them as a animation in the editor you need to gzip the txt file using e.g. 7zip with gzip as compression method. 7zip can be found here http://www.7-zip.org
  6. Hello! Started working on Judge Dredd, first replace scenes only. Below is some progress, hope you like them After finish I will put up for download. Have a nice weekend ! Logen
  7. ok, posting here BEFORE pinside. So after finishing SFII (Gottlieb), Terminator 2 (Williams), I figured its time to tackle a Data East pin! Here is Lethal Weapon 3! Very much a work in progress, but I do have a few scenes done ( more than what is attached here). I'm trying to use color masks and palette changes exclusively, no redraws. There's also another reason for choosing this game. Randy Perlow hired me to color this for ColorDMD, sent me a contract an a W9 form, which I filled out and sent back after purchasing the machine. After I bought the machine, I emailed him for an update on when I'd get the hardware and software to color the game and he replied with this: " Thomas, I previously contacted you regarding ColorDMD’s concerns with your work on an infringing platform and potential harm to its business. At the time you responded that the work was for private use. Since then you have ignored our concerns, and taken action to promote and publicly distribute this work, counter to a ColorDMD new product introduction. As a result, ColorDMD can no longer reasonably expect to conduct business with you in good faith, or entrust you with safeguarding our proprietary information. Regretfully, our offer to work with you as an independent contractor on future titles is withdrawn. Randy Perlow ColorDMD Displays" Which put me on the hook for a machine I really cant afford to own. Im going to knock out this colorization, install the pin2DMD, and hopefully get a bunch of money in donations (spoiler: I wont ) but I'll likely end up selling the machine. Data East Logo: Grab the gun and fire! LW3 logo/shot (all 3 are done) Train shoot animation: And lastly, the shoot out. This isnt 1 sequence, its 6 with a blank red frame between. If you dont get all 6 shots off , you dont see every frame. Score is masked so it should update dynamically. This was a HUGE pain in the dickhole. This colorization is also dedicated to the memory of Nick Wade , who worked on Back to the Future, Batman, Checkpoint, King Kong, Lethal Weapon 3, and The Simpsons.

  11. Error firmware version not supported

    every now and then I receive a pop-up when starting a visual pinball game that the firmware is not supported and the pin2dmd does not respond anymore. Only option is a reboot or a device reboot via the pin2dmd tool. Does anyone has an idea why this happens? It is a bit annoying. I'm running firmware 2.36 and the pin2dmd key is on the sd card and also in then pin2dmd tool directory. Thanks for the help :).
  12. This Tutorial will be expanded upon in the future, but I want to get the basics going first. Source files will be downloadable from here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=15r3ty4eu7Mkg2CBIEul65AjmkGpTWdZ- The recording is from Star Wars and was sent to me by @thebarto This tutorial assumes you have the editor software installed, and have recordings of the game available. Open the editor and choose Animations -> Load recording and load the gz file. Or go to file->load project and load the XML file. I tend to save a new project as soon as I load the recordings. It is best to keep all projects in their own sub-folders, for organizational purposes. I have also opened the XML file and removed the pathing to the file so that it reads: <string>060118_113731_pin2dmd_dump.txt.gz</string> instead of <string>d:\Pin2DMD\Malenko\060118_113731_pin2dmd_dump.txt.gz</string> Let's begin with the score screen. You don't need more than 1 frame when you use a mask. If you click on the keyframe, you'll see the word "Player" is masked. That means anytime the game sees that word in that location, it'll apply the masking from the frame "score screen" . I did not draw a box around the word player, since stars fly behind it, and that would make the mask not work. Zoomed in: If you look at the single frame scene called "Score Screen" you can see my color masking. I changed the default colors to red, I filled in the words with blue, and I drew a box around where the numbers are using the black,red, and white section of the palette. What this does is let the "stars" stay red when they fly behind the numbers AND let the numbers stay white no matter what number is on screen. So player 2 on ball 3 with 7 credits will look exactly the same as player 1 on ball 2 with 0 credits. Frame prior to colorization: Frame WITH colorization: You cannot have the score and the stars different colors on since the score moves around based on how high the score gets and they share a colors. This is the exact same way I did the score for Terminator 2 , Street Fighter 2, and Lethal Weapon 3 ; so you can DL those files and poke around there too. Here is a better break down of the color masks: Default Colors: Apply to the entire scene where ever a color mask is not present Mask Colors apply where every you draw them. A single dot, a fill, a shape, a line it doesnt matter. If you have the 1st mask colors selected and you draw a box, where ever that box is drawn will convert 1 to A , 2 to B, 3 to C and 4 to D If you have the 2nd mask colors selected and you draw a box, where ever that box is drawn will convert 1 to E , 2 to F, 3 to G and 4 to H If you have the 3rd mask colors selected and you draw a box, where ever that box is drawn will convert 1 to I , 2 to J, 3 to K and 4 to L Now you're probably asking "but why are you reusing colors" That is to simplify masking, instead of coloring each dot in every word we can draw a box. This is also used to mask the numbers so that when the numbers change to any value, the lightest color stays white while allowing the stars to still hold their color as they pass behind. If you ever decide to change the colors in the default section , you'll have to update the the colors in the other section as well if you use this technique. Its much easier to see the actual color masks with the values changed in the above example.

  15. Can someone dump Batman Forever?

    I'd like to color BF now that I watched the editor tutorial videos. Would someone be able to dump the BF animations for me? I see a few people have done it in the past. Was hoping there was already one in the downloads section but I didn't see it there.
  16. Version 1.0.0


    Lucky1s color work is fantastic! I've been spending quite a bit of time getting all of my DMD displays optimized with your EXTDMD and palletes and wanted to share/contribute. I took his original pack and then organized them by color and found the best stern rom replacements for different color themes and added a bunch of new games. There are about 296 folders in this archive For any replacements, I copied the original pin2dmd in the rom folder as a backup. The stern DMDs, even the not color patched ones look much better I think with these. This set does assume you patched the ones with color rom versions as well. Be sure to backup your altcolor directory to revert any of your customizations.
  17. Having issues while trying to export project

    So I've got my colordmd connected and running on my Starship Troopers. At first I was only getting a pallette file when I was exporting the project from the pin2editor because like a dumbass I was never setting up any keyframes/scene swaps. So after figurine it out a little now I put on some scene some swaps. So after saving them and exporting the project now pin2dmd editor crashes and the psq file is only 5 bytes. Any ideas?

  22. Thanks to the great Pin2Dmd and it's Colorprism FW + the custom PinballX dll file (thanks Lucky1), I now can run my custom HULK themed video in color during attract mode where you select the tables. This look so great but I can't really catch it in the clip, but it looks like a blend between the original footage and the filmed DMD. Maybe the light is too strong from the DMD (or my equipment to shitty *lol*) Original movie made in Sony Vegas: Filmed running on my cabs PIN2DMD/rgbDMD : Hope you like it and get inspired make your custom cab vids (and please, post them for us to see) Thanks all involved in this great project and the continuous development of its firmware. Regards /Gustav
  23. Street Fighter II

    Just got 3 Pin2DMDs, Ive been looking forward to colorizing the game so it can get the love it deserves. Unfortunately , pin2DMD doesnt seem to be able to display the data from the pin. I hooked all 3 panels up to my Terminator 2 and put them in Williams mode and they displayed the T2 DMD screens just fine. Reconnected them to Gottlieb Street Fighter II, and no matter what input mode I chose it just stays on the static PIN2DMD splash screen. Any ideas? I PM'ed Lucky1 but figured I should post too!
  24. Frame For Pin2Dmd

    I saw in one of the other threads that people were looking to make frames to hold the 2 led segments, please post any ideas or designs here so they don't get lost within the other threads.
  25. I have just received two new displays to be set up in my Capcom Airborne and Pinball Magic. The versions with the integrated power supply fit nicely under the metal shield. So far, I have not been able to locate a suitable power cable I can tap the power from. Any suggestions? (I want to avoid running a longer lead all the way to the power supply).
