SAM Build with modular DMD drivers for pindmd1,2,3 and PIN2DMD

Recommended Posts

Since it only addresses pin2dmd users, consider it a hacked version and please make a feature request over at gameex that Tom has a look
at it and maybe changes the code to address all devices.

Can't get my pin2dmd to work with the latest vpinmame, I also get the "no dmd device driver found" error, I placed the dmddevice.dll and libusbk.dll in my vpinmame folder. Tried to change the driver to winusb but no luck :(  I'm running the latest pin2dmd firmware, OS: Windows 7 64bit

Another idea I have that is could be a problem if you are connected to a USB3 port. (which is supported by latest libusb but not by the older version)

I rembember one case where the user had to change bios settings to disable xHCI / eHCI etc to make it work.

 

Did you try this ?

Could you please try if the pindmd2 version is working ?

Of course you need to change back to libusb-win32 driver.

Does the pin2dmd.exe work ? Did you try different vpinmame.dll versions ?

... and pindmd2 dmddevice.dll is also not working ? Please try setup.exe from pinmame and test a table if that works.

Do you use 64bit pinmame ?

No luck with the pindmd2 version, I'm running 32bit vpinmame, I also tried to test a ROM through setup and I get the same error :(

That is really strange. Problem seems to be that vpinmame isn´t able to find or to load the dmddevice.dll. Just to make sure, is it located in the same directory with vpinmame.dll since that is where it is looking for. Can you make a screenshot of the error message ? What is the path of vpinmame.dll ?

Here is a modified driver which seems to react the way you like to have it.

dmddevice.zip

Thank you Lucky for this file and your on-going support here!

Path = D:\Visual Pinball\VPinMame\

Did you try to start the setup.exe as administrator ? Could you make a screenshot of the vpinmame directory ?

I tried the dmddevice.dll you attached previously... but it is looking for a PIN2DMD... any chance it could work with the PINDMD3? I'd like to see that colour on my display if at all possible.

Normally I would have to say no, because I got banned from VPF from the guy selling pindmd3, because pin2dmd is a competitive product. But since freezy unfortunately spent his money on the wrong product and we are working on this together, there is a pretty good chance you will see that coming. Who cares about the childish behavior of mister VPF anyways.

But we need the help of DJRobX to get this fully working.

Most importantly, monitor users will be able to benefit from this as well.

I'm more or less done with the palette changes and I'm currently implementing the animation replacement stuff. I'll post a new DLL in a few days.

I'm glad I went with the Pin2DMD . I figured there was games happening on VPF when I was messaging a fellow member and the words Pin2DMD were marked with ***'s like it was a banned word. Such childish behaviour. There's some great forum members on that board, but after poking around the past year, the way that forum is run makes me think a bit. I'm glad I sourced my hardware from other suppliers and not them now.

Yes I tried to run setup as admin.

Here's my vpinmame directory

Could you please upload you vpinmame.dll and dmddevice.dll ? You could also try to copy your dmddevice.dll to c:/windows/system32

Why is your dmddevice.dll in the archive dated 28.11.2016 and in your directory 01.12.2016  and your vpinmame.dll

02.12.2016 in the archive and 06.12.2016 in your folder ?

I just downloaded it again from your first post and overwrote the file, that's why the dates don't match

Normally the creation dates don´t get modified through a download etc.. There is something else changing the date. 
Some kind of virus scanner etc ?

I haven't installed any virus protection, but does the dates matter?
