Hello, it's my first installation of a pin2dmd kit.

On a real pinball with a nucleo v4 I have the platform system frozen on screen during boot sequence.

But i can reset and go to config and it seem ok. I make a video to show my issue (no ribbon cable on this video but i do an other test with micro sd key registration and ribbon cable plugged. With the same display on screen) :

 

There is an older firmware to test?

Thanks

Did you solder the shield yourself ?

Go into the onscreen menu

. initiate a reset config.
- if not already done by reset config, set the RGQ sequence that the second to left color is red and the second to right is yellow
- save this config.

In virtual pinball mode the device mode should be autodetected.
Check the orientation of the ribbon cable.

If it still does not work you most likely have a problem on the shield.
Maybe wrong resistor array type. It needs to be of type isolated and NOT bussed.

Hello Lucky1 and thanks.

It was the config I had done a reset config in menu and choose virtual pinball as default.  It's working fine .  😉

But i have a new problem : when i start pinball , after 3 minutes, i see that the display say "not activated" with the serial number. If i do a reset of nucleo it work great during 3 minutes chrono and after we have the same message.  (like a shareware demo with time limit)

So it could be a key file problem on my microSD ? I will try this option tomorrow.

sorry : i done a wrong manip with my keyboard and send it before to have finish

Do you run the latest firmware version v3.05 ? If not please update.
If yes please try a different microSD and make sure the keyfile is the same as
the number on the display.

I've just upgraded from 2.65 to 3.05 on my v3 shield and it works fine using the lucky dll (didnt try freezy).

I did notice a few wrinkles though that may need ironing out..

  • Pin2dmd.exe no longer appears to supports command line args.  Consequently I've had too keep an old v2 pin2dmd.exe around so i can invoke the reset via command line (i use this on pc startup).
  • Adjusting the brightness slider is very slow for the display to reflect the change. It does eventually work, but often requires a few attempts.  Didnt have this problem with v2.

Keep up the awesome work!

If you need commandline arguments use the 32bit V3 pin2dmd.exe which is more or less like the V2.x version. Commandline arguments are only needed by VP cabinet users.

I will have a look at the brightness slider.

Thanks, the 32bit version  commandline works correctly.  I mistakenly thought x86 and x64 were the same app just compiled for different architectures.

Regarding the slider, I took a closer look..

  • Drag is working fine.  Although it's sluggish compared to x86.  No big deal, but figured you might find this interesting.. perhaps it's processing too many drag events and sending then all to the board?
  • Clicking the scrollbar is failing.  Presumably because the page down/up events haven't been registered.

I'd send you a MR but couldn't find the source in the repo?

No, the 32bit version is based on Visual C++ . The Win64 and OSX version is based on wxwidgets. The main reason for these versions was the OSX port, to be able to record a dump on a Mac. Dump performance on a Mac is much better than on Windows and the timing is more precise than on pinmame dumps.

I see some people are able to run 3.05 with freezy.. (1.73?)  but what is STM discovery?  I am using windows drivers, not the libusbk ones.

 

If I use the Freezy .dll it gives me an error about PinDMD v2 cannot be found... even though it is set to false in the .ini file.

 

So i seem to only be able to use Lucky's ATM.

SD card update is supported in version 2.50 and above. You need to upgrade using DFU mode and use the DFU file.

DFU upgrade procedure is described here https://pin2dmd.com/installation/ point 1.2 or contact your hardware supplier about instructions on
how to upgrade.
