DOF Config Tool: A video tour of it's many features and mysteries...

Recommended Posts

What is DOF Config Tool? What is it used for? What the f**k is all this stuff on there?
 
This is my simple video tour of DOF Config Tool. I figured I would explain what most of it's features are, and how they work before I release my new DOF Config Creator Sheet. I'll have another video for that which explains more in that regard.
 
It's a lot of info...but then again DOF involves a lot of shit! Don't like watching videos to learn? Then start reading the DOF R3 wiki from the beginning. :)

Thanks...and yes you can.

I also will be making another video to go along with my "DOF Config Creator excel Sheet" that I'll be releasing in the next couple of days. It was originally made by myself and DDH69 for doing MX Leds for FP and FX3...but I have completely redone it with lot's of info,etc and templates (VP, FP, Pinball, Effects,etc) to use for both MX Leds and now most of the common DOF toys as well!

It will be posted on this site for anyone to use.

DOF, MX Leds, and creating table configs. The "basics" and introduction to my "DOF Config Creator Sheet".

In this video I go through all the "basics" of DOF. How the commands work, how the triggering works, and how it relates to VP, FP, FX3. I explain how addressable leds (MX) work and how they are different than standard DOF toys. I also give you a first tour of my DOF Config Creator Sheet that will make creating table configs for DOF and MX Leds MUCH easier.

I will soon have a tutorial and will show you how to add MX Leds and effects (the easy way using my sheet) to a table in the next video.

DOF Config Creator: Basic Table Template Tutorial.
 
This Video will show you "how" to use the "DOF Config Creator" Sheet's "Table Template". It shows the ease and basics of adding / removing / editing the DOF or MX effects already made available for you (or make your own). Then I show how to easily add your new DOF commands to DOF Config Tool. It's important to watch the ENTIRE video, as there are some specific steps required to make this work correctly!
 
Basic Video tutorial is here:
 
 
 
 
I will do one more tutorial video that will show me using the sheet to add MX Leds to a VPX rom based table... the easy way.
 
After that video is done, I will create a central Post where I will detail all the info summarized on the videos, and I will make the sheet available there. Soon!
