PIN2DMD colors doesn't match original colors

Recommended Posts

I already thought that the colors were not right when I started some games, but because I'm new to PIN2DMD (I switched from PINDMD3) and still don't know how everything works:

did I used the wrong roms ? (I've downloaded some colored roms but didn't tried them yet)

do I have to use the altcolor files too (in some subfolders from the altcolor folder I see a pin2dmd.pal but also ._pin2dmd.pal) and does the game use them automatically?

do I have to change the colors myself on each table (do I put a tick at Colorize DMD (4 colors)?, I found a topic with the correct color settings like R254, G64, B1 etc. but are they necessary  with colored roms and/or altcolor .pal files?

So  I've upgraded to firmware 2.60 and started to look more into PIN2DMD I  did see the colors from pin2dmd.exe are in a wrong order...

This is the result from the palette:

palette 0 - VGA
palette 1 - Red
palette 2 - should be Green ---> but is Blue
palette 3 - Blue ---> Green
palette 4 - Violet ---> Yellow
palette 5 - Cyan
palette 6 - Yellow ---> Violet/Purple/Dark Pink
palette 7 - White ---> White
palette 8 - Orange ---> Pink/Red-ish

As you can see in the attached picture you see the wrong colors and a missing pixel in the right corner, but I bought the PIN2DMD from GGS and it took about 5 months to receive the board, so when I looked in the corner and saw there is a pixel missing I took that for granted.

So the main question is...can I change something in the settings so that the right colors appear when I click for example on palette 2 so I get Green instead of Blue?   .... and also for the other colors?

Enter the onscreen menu (hold menu button during boot) and set the RGB Sequence accordingly.
Save settings

Didn't even know there were buttons on the back of the boards 😋

But after changing the RGB Sequence I tried the AC/DC colored rom using bspatch etc. and I created my first colored rom with success!!

Many thnx!!

I've got exactly the same problem ( on pincab passion forum they told me to switch pin 2 with 3 and 6 with 7 but the result is worst.

So i wouls like to try to solve the problem by the menu but i can't access. I've tried :several solution

1- hold the two button : PIN2DMD screen start flickering ans flashing weirdly.

2- Hold first button : As it's hold the black remain black and when a release the pin2dmd boot normally but no access to menu

2- Hold second button : Nothing happen -(.

I use 2.6 colorprims version.

My pin2dmd is both connected with the micro and mini USB.

I'am doing something wrong ???

Tks for your help ??

I think you are referring to the buttons on the discovery board.
To access the menu you need to use the buttons on the shield.

If you don´t use a shield you need to swap cables like yuo have been told
in the pcp forum.

Please understand that I can´t give support for flying wire installations
because from the technical side it is not really reliable  and high frequencies
can have many unpredictable side effects.
