SAMBuild3.2 beta thread

Recommended Posts

Latest SAMBuild for the version 3.2 cycle can be found in this post. 

The package includes the latest external DMD dlls if there has been a recent update. Or else find the external DMD dlls with the beta thread for the official VPinMAME build here:

http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=27063&page=1

OR

at lucky1's GitHub repository for Pin2DMD here:

https://github.com/lucky01/PIN2DMD/tree/master/integration/pinmame 

OR

freezy's dmddevice.dll which provides full color DMD support for virtual DMD as well as hardware DMD (i.e., LED panels):

https://github.com/freezy/dmd-extensions/releases

 

Copy the files into your VPM directory, and run setup.exe again. There, press the install button (with each new build) and remember to setup the defaults again!

In case you have an external DMD connected that you want to use with VPM, please move the dlls from the respective subdirectory (Pin2DMD or PinDMD1 or PinDMD2 or PinDMD3) directly into your VPM directory!

Awesome stuff.

You may want to change the line that mentions:

In case you have an external DMD connected that you want to use with VPM, please move the dlls from the respective subdirectory (Pin2DMD or PinDMD1 or PinDMD2 or PinDMD3) directly into your VPM directory!

 

...as now with freezy 1.7 (and it's full colour support), many people, both real DMD and virtual DMD are now using freezy's dmdevice.dll. Some people who update may follow that line (after having freezy all setup).... and then come crying to me that their PuP stuff isn't working anymore.  :(

Could you possibly add in a mention of freezy in there as well, mentioning to freezy users to NOT use the DLL from those folders.

 

Thanks for your efforts as always Carney.

this might be OCD in my part but 

can we please get color rom entries for all the sam tables?

Xmen and TWD have color rom entries but their is no patch for them  yet

BBH POTC Shrek WPT (French and English) all have color rom patches but we still have to use the default rom names for them.

Those tables mentioned do not support side channel loading (Pinball Browser extended memory) so there is no reason to have an extra slot. Just enable Ignore ROM CRC errors in VPM settings and the patched code should load just fine.

As I said. I didn't see it on BOP. But, Sharpshooter II over at vpinball has clattering left flipper. Hold it up and you notice it easily hitting bumpers and a few other switches. I don't think it is vpm related though. But, thought I should post it here since those smart guys often reads this thread.

Thanks again for another update.  Just checking if I did anything wrong.  Normally I copy over the files and rerun install.  I then check the info and it tells me the date.  This (r4635) says Sept 15th, is that normal?

Yepp, same date same size. I have used WinMerge for file compare, result "identical"
