Attack from mars colorization

Recommended Posts

Hmmm... not sure why, but I'm getting yellow and red colors instead of what I was expecting. Using the latest version of everything.

Edit: Ah, seems the firmware on the Pin2DMD was out of date. AFM is working fine now, but now my Pin2DMD thinks it's not activated and the Pin2DMD.exe says the firmware is not supported. Hmmm.

Addendum: Got that too. Looks like I needed to upgrade the STM firmware. Seems everything is working nicely now.

Tell me scenes which didn't colorized.

I finally remember to get back to testing this, you mentioned them in your release post "Few scenes in total annihilation is not finished, but other scenes is ok"


The ones I noticed are the left orbit and the left ramp, they are mirrored versions of the right orbit and ramp animations, right is coloured, left is not.


I'll post a video when youtube finish processing my edits.


Only minor issue, but they do stand out next to all your other beautiful work on this one.


Thanks again,



Edit: Here is the video, skip to 9:40 for first Total Annihilation, it shows both missing animations. I didn't notice any others. I left the full length game for others to see how good this version is, if they don't already have it.

Thought I would give this a try along with the PUP pack that was just released for AFM but am having a few issues.  The posted videos look great.  I'm using a Virtual DMD so I'm assuming that is supported and that it isn't only a hardware DMD supported option.

I'm using the latest DMDExt, VPM, SAMBuild, VPX Beta.  Win10, x64.  

Basically the colors are way off, every graphic is shaded in blue.  Removing the pin2dmd.vin file changes up the colors to be a little closer but still not that close and removing the file introduces some weird artifacts and flashing and the DMD seems to glitch a little bit with things cutting out and what not.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what to try?  I have successfully used other rom colorizations with no issue.  Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

You are using DMDExt,  1.7.2   -- As far as I know the Dll file from here does not work right

Use the dll from here


If you don't want to use the new features just put the Dll file in VpinMane folder and do not change your InI file

Total annihilation looks great! One thing on real pin is the DCS Sound banner is grey but no big deal. Martians during Martian Attack are only green and white but that may be purposeful. I do notice the gradient on “GAME OVER” and some others the bottom 2 lines are so dark it looks clipped . But overall great job!
