About This File

After almost eleven months, I have finally gotten to a 1.0 version of my coloring of Bally's Cirqus Voltaire. Harder than Tales or Batman, my third outing took a lot of time to get right. There are still some transitions that aren't colored due to the randomness of the DMD, but I'd say it's at least 98 percent done. Due to the blurry effect of this DMD, I had to redraw numerous scenes from scratch and change the layout of a few more just to make the hashtags work.

?Install the pin2dmd files in the cv_20h folder of your Altcolor folder in VPinMame
?Turn off the Playfield DMD in the Cirqus script. I haven't played with it on, but it could cause a lot of sync issues.

I did  this coloring using the Knorr version of the table as well as the cv_20h rom.

Known issues (that I may redo later)

?The Match Game clown coloring only works with 2 players. Three or Four players will not color due to mapping and score masking.
?Some transitions are not colored
?The Spot Marvel with the Girl isn't colored due to not finding all the Spot marvel frames. Will do that sometime later.
?There may be some sync issues near the end of the game in Step 2 of the Wizard Mode.

I hope you all enjoy this. It took a lot of time and effort, and I can't thank Martin Knoppke for the incredible advice and time he gave to me. 

If you see any issues please write them here and I'll tackle them someday. I'm a bit burned out on the Cirqus, so I'll step back and see what you all think. Thanks again!

What a mammoth effort. Really appreciate the time and love that you have clearly put into this.
Thank you - if anything needs to be colourful, its CV :)

This is just beyond gorgeous, fantastic amazing job!  I saw a post once about a workaround to get this to display on the table like the original DMD.  Does anyone have instructions on how to do that?

This is a great piece of work. I have been playing with the editor recently, following martins excellent tutorial, and it is extremely hard to get great results like this. I really appreciate the work that has gone into this, Thanks.

I'd love to see how it plays on a real Pin2DMD. Can you send me a video?
