  1. Fun, fun, fun. I’m practicing powder coating so I can powder coat the external metal parts. Just installed lighted flipper buttons. I want to get to the forever mode!
  2. I’ve got a few built up and available for $15 plus shipping. These are left over from the minimum order I was required to place. The board works great for tapping 12 and 5 volts.
  3. I found the issue with the roof top chase. I had a trigger looking for the batmobile. Everytime the batmobile was in the center the scene was restarting from the beginning. I have updated files and this issue should not be present now. I anticipate this will be my last update unless I get a change of mood on this project. It has been great fun and a real learning experience. I have hit a mental wall with some transitions and plan on going a different route with my machine. If anyone wants to download all the files off my google drive and take up this project, please do so. I encourage anyone to perfect it as it is 90 percent done and 90 percent to go! Thank you all for participating and encouraging me. Go Pin2Dmd!!!
  4. It doesn’t seem like the CPU would be at fault since it boots with reset just fine. Something is delivering the wrong voltage to the CPU when the power supply comes on line I believe. After the power supply stabilizes the reset button is effective in starting the CPU. If it were the CPU you wouldn’t have such predictable behavior. Is it possible a capacitor on the CPU is backwards and therefore a reset works when a cold start doesn’t?
  5. Is it worth trying a bypass of the power supply section and supply the 5 volts directly? Maybe the power supply is ramping up slower than the CPU. I hate you are having this difficulty. I finished five boards this weekend and all worked great after I installed a USB driver that the windows 10/STM32 were happy with. A great relief to me. First board took three hours to program. Other boards took two minutes. I am using a radio shack 10 amp power supply at 13.5 volts. Using the blue 8-36 volt tap for input. Boards boot in about 1 second and reboot with reset just as fast. The one installed board in LW3 is booting as soon as I turn on the external power supply. I am still waiting on 90 degree molex connectors for Data East power tap.
  6. One of the guys in line for a board just sold his pin. So, I have one EVO 128 x 32 available for my cost. It’s assembled and tested but not activated. Skip the DFU issues and buy this one for a quick install. $ 164 plus shipping. I’m just recovering the outlay for my minimum 5 board build.
  7. The three interested parties are located. If all three pay up my boards will have been spoken for. Thanks guys. Last night I installed mine in Lethal Weapon 3 and it looks great. My wife is excited about trying it out today. Now to get Batman Forever colored, built, installed.
  8. I have gotten in my boards and LED panels for the EVO 128 x 32 Pin2Dmd's. I didn't realize the inbox on this site was so small! Three of you guys sent me private messages expressing interest in purchasing a board for my cost. Those messages have been deleted as my inbox was deleting the oldest messages automatically. Please message me again (I have cleared the inbox). I will share my actual email address and we can proceed from there. I got one of the boards working and activated last night. Today I am installing it in Lethal Weapon 3. So, it looks like I got a batch that are working fine. Thanks, Lane
  9. Malenko, I admire your work here. I'm coloring Batman Forever and have first hand realization of how incredibly difficult this is! We just purchased a LW3 real pin and I just built up my first Pin2Dmd. Today I am testing the Pin2Dmd device on my VPX setup before installing in real pin. I don't know if you are still updating LW3 but I noticed a few glitches that you may or may not be aware of. Either way your present work is great and thank you very much. . At the end of the game "insert coins" and "game over" are reverting to default pallet. I’m using Chad code mod. Minor issues with such a large project but I wasn't sure if you were aware of these burps. Edit; Removed first two glitches as the triggers were correct on real pin. Lane
  10. I guess I am a member of the "can't get this DIY project done in a DIY manner" club. Five boards - none going into DFU mode. I can see "STM32 Bootloader" as a device in device manager. I have a green light on the board. I press DFU button and while holding it I press and release "Reset". I can hear the windows chime and the device manager shows the device disappear and then reappear but I never see it in DFU mode. I downloaded ZADIG and updated USB drivers. I also tried the DFSu Cube application as well as the legacy loader. No luck. Tried all five boards. REflowed L1 L1 voltage 2.98 and 2.98 BAT60 3.28 and 2.98 TS 2940 4.78 and 3.28 C15 2.98 Is this 2.98 that I am getting in various places too low? I jumpered across BAT60 and got 3.2 on L1 and no difference noted in boot. The capacitors scattered around the CPU, most show 2.9 on one leg. I've tested voltage on three boards and they are all the same. All the boards seem to test voltages the same (of the two or three I have compared). I am using a 10 amp 13.8 volt power supply and inputing on the 8-36 volt DC terminals. I'm really upset about my progress on this project. I have so much time invested in the Batman Forever colorization and now the actual hardware. I wish I could make some progress here SOLVED!!! 12:01 EST. Time for a beer. If you can see your STM Device in Windows Device Manager but you can not get it into DFU mode then read the above post and install the new driver. Instantly I had the DFU mode working. Only it took me 12 hours to get there. I had installed new driver earlier but it was not acceptable. The above one was.
  11. Lots of toys and especially magnets. Can’t wait to play it!
  12. Hey guys, I have been coloring Batman Forever and just purchased a real pin version. My wife and I head to Florida tomorrow to pick it up. Does anyone have a leftover 192 x 64 board they would like to sell. I can have some made but really don't want to go through that for just one board as today I just got my five 128 x 32 boards in and have yet to distribute those to the guys that want the extras. If anyone else would like to place a group order for 192 x 64 let me know. I can't imagine playing this beautiful game with an orange DMD! Lane
  13. WooHoo! Boards made it from China today. It looks like one alignment hole and two screw holes are going to need enlarging slightly. They are about 1/16" misplaced. No problem adjusting with a Dremel tool. Is this a common adjustment or did I just wind up with a random panel or board misalignment on this run? This is going to be a fun addition to my Lethal Weapon 3 and now I can preview live with the editor on my desktop. Yipeeee! I hope software and activation goes great.
  14. I've been at this a while and I have no idea what you are experiencing with this statement. Try Freezy 1.9. It will help solve many of your DMD problems.
  15. When I first tried Pup Packs it was very frustrating. My videos would freeze and if I ran task manager I could see that the video program was opened multiple times. After revisiting the issue over several months I finally figured out it was a conflict with "administrator privileges'". Until a couple of years ago aspects of VPX were suggested to run in administrator mode. That is no longer the case and if you have enabled that mode it will have a conflict with Pup video playback. At least that was my issue. I went through and unchecked all the pinball plugins that had administrator privileges and everything is better now.
  16. That’s strange as I haven’t colored that scene. It’s running in its native mode. So must be in your end.
  17. I'm using PF Back Flashers, PF Back Strobes, PF Back PBX MX
  18. Today I received two shipments of LED panels. Like the previous poster two of the panels are missing CX4 and CX5. Picture shows left board with those components and right board does not have them. Hopefully this is not a material difference in the display. I am still waiting on the EVO boards. PCBWay has the proper 4 pin connectors on order. My DigiKey order for the same connectors and their female counterparts shows that the male connectors have a middle of October expected ship date. Evidently connectors are in high demand!
  19. I just received my five boards from PCBWay. I have three extra. I anyone needs 1 to 3 boards I will mail to you for $8 plus shipping. I have the components to build the boards up on order. However the connectors are back ordered until middle of October. If you want a complete board and can wait I will be glad to build it up and ship. Cost will increase of course.
  20. Love the Pup Pack. I had been suffering stuttering videos. Tonight I switched to the alternative version and now it is smooth and beautiful. I guess my 4K system was just being overtaxed with the other version.
  21. This explains some of my issues with transitions. Some of my transitions in color mask require a dozen or more different triggers because the opening scene will have different pixels lit whenever it is used more than once. I can’t use replace method because score is part of transitions
  22. I’m sure you guys are correct and this is an attempt at a substitution. When I looked at it early early this morning it appeared the board was cracked. I think it’s a reflection now that I’m awake. I am trying to communicate a solution with PCBWay. It’s tough with the language barrier. I have sent pictures which will hopefully get us understanding each other. For another project I’m doing locally I have the exact plug on back order with an October 15 expected ship date.
  23. If you notice in the picture the machine was indexed incorrectly and tried to poke the component through the board in the wrong spot. This bent the plug and cracked the board. I just got an email from them asking if I will pay extra for the replacement board. I’m starting to wish this project was through OSHPark. I’ve never had this issue with them. Maybe I’m looking at it wrong. Perhaps what looks like cracks is just a reflection. This should be a straight plug and not a 90 degree. I initially thought the plug had been bent during assembly. Maybe they are just wanting to substitute. Thanks for your order#T-1D8W362612A on PCBWay. Pls kindly check pic1 for part WPC,the component is bend,is it ok to assemble?
