pin2dmd in real SAM pinballs

Recommended Posts

hi guys, i need some info about the pin2dmd on real SAM stern pinball.

that's what i understood:

1) to colorize the real pinballs i have to use the original stern rom of the game and patch it with the *.diff file.

2) i need the patched file and the smartdmd.txt file and open them with pinballbrowser to create the *.bin file to flash on my real pinball.

3) the same smartdmd.txt file needs to be opened with pin2dmd editor and transform it into pin2dmd.pal file to put on my sd card.

 

then the questions are:

is it right?

if it's right, where can i find the smartdmd.txt files for every pinball?

if it's not right, what am i missing? :-)

thank you all

Diff works only for Shrek and POTC which use inframe palette switching method. For other projects using sidechannel you need the pinballbrowser
macro from the author. The diff in the download section work only for VPINs because the machine serial number is used during installation of the compatch.

ok, thank you, is there a guide where i can read and learn how they work?

for example i patch the shrek file, i'll put it on my pinball and than???

what else do i have to do? no pin2dmd.pal required? 

about the "inframe palette", do i have to set it somewhere?

Point 6 here https://pin2dmd.com/

the pin2dmd.pal comes together with the diff and needs to be placed on the SD card.

Inframe is a colorization method of pinball browser which is recognized by pin2dmd automatically.

For serial sidechannel you need a serial connection to your SAM board like described here https://pin2dmd.com/pinball-browser/
