  1. My basic idea was that I wanted a Beacon on top of my backbox. Then I wanted a red one, and a blue one, and a yellow one, and a purple one. I want them all, but that would not fit so... This is a MX beacon with full color support by WS2812 LEDs!! There is DOF support already, but not many tables are configured (yet). Attached is STL files for 3D-printing and simple assembly info.

  2. Hi All I have been trying to figure this out now for a few weeks. I have to reach out for help. Here are the facts I have a Teensy that works well with Arduino testing. It is on COM3 as per the screen shot attached. It works when I test the Example files so COM3 is a goer. I have flashed the ROM on Teensy from https://github.com/DirectOutput/TeensyStripController/releases by downloading the file, opening in the TeensyProgram, pressing auto and loading the file and it says OK to reboot. Teensyprogramming.png I have unblocked all DLLs I have installed DOF under c:/directoutput I have removed DofLinx until I can get it sorted I dont have ANY other devices other than the Teensy I have am using all channels of Teensy. 71 x 6 (channels 1-6) for Matrix and 2 x 71 (channels 7 & 8 ) for right and left sides. Tried with Firewall On/Off - Re-installed Windows 10 My only hunch is that the flash of Teensy did not work?? Here is the issue Check out the video - 1. I open the Config tester and select the GlobalConfig_B2sServer.xml file and it opens 2. I then try to open Cabinet and it crashes with this error. 2019.03.25 14:22:31.665 Initializing cabinet 2019.03.25 14:22:31.665 Debug: Initializing output controllers 2019.03.25 14:22:31.681 TeensyStripController TeensyStripController intialized and updater thread started. 2019.03.25 14:22:31.681 Debug: Output controllers initialized 2019.03.25 14:22:31.697 TeensyStripController TeensyStripController updater thread started. 2019.03.25 14:22:31.697 Cabinet initialized 2019.03.25 14:22:31.697 Loading shape definition file: C:\DirectOutput\Config\DirectOutputShapes.xml 2019.03.25 14:22:31.728 Framework initialized. 2019.03.25 14:22:31.728 Have fun! 2019.03.25 14:22:32.337 EXCEPTION: TeensyStripController TeensyStripController updater thread could not connect to the controller.

  3. Can someone help on how I wire this to a teensy for a noob? For example, which wire to 5 v power supply? Which wire for ground on power supply? i have a cat5 cable with a orange/whirte wire and a solid orange wire. Which wires do these attach to? i tried hooking it up myself but just got random lights in the strip to light so obviously I must have did things incorrectly. Thanks in advance, Lance Ps my apologies if this has been covered already or if I posted on wrong spot.
  4. After weeks of failed attempts, I am now ready to draw from your massive collective pool of knowledge. I have been over my config and researched possible solutions many many times and cannot get my addressable LEDs functioning with DOF/DofLinx. They are connected to a Teensy 3.2/OctoWS2811. I must be overlooking something obvious - or I am missing something. I have 2 strips of 67 LEDs - one on the orange pair and one on the blue pair - both on the TOP connector of the OctoWS2811 board. The board was set to COM3 - then I tried changing it to COM6 then COM2 with no change. I also changed the USB cable just in case. The Teensy is loaded with TeensyStripController.Beta.V1.02.1601021351.hex Other Teensy test sketches run perfectly and light all the LEDs properly. I have bridged Teensy pins 15 & 16 to solve the "all white" problem. DirectOutput MJR Grander Unified DOF R3++ edition - Version 3.1.6968.21374 built 2019.01.29 11:52 - Installed using the Windows Installer - Installed to C:\DirectOutput DofLinx Version 6.62B - VBS file copied to Future Pinball\Scripts B2S Backglass Server Version Cabinet config is named ForbisManor.ini In DOF Online Config: Combine Toys - Combo2 = RGB Addressable (PF Left Flashers MX + PF Left Effects MX) - Combo3 = RGB Addressable (PF Right Flashers MX + PF Right Effects MX) Device WS2801 1 - directoutputconfigini30 - Port 1-3 = Combo2 - Port 4-6 = Combo3 Other devices working perfectly: - PacLed64 - 2 x SainSmart 8 Port USB Boards Testing with Future Pinball Tables: - Tron Legacy (Stern) (Ultimate 1.01) (p2.7) (DOFLinx MX) - Star Wars DSA (Ultimate 1.04) (p2.7) (DOFLinx MX 1.1) - RetroFlair (p2.5) (DOFLinx MX) - Masters of the Universe - Mastered Edition (p2.5) (DOFLinx MX) Including all relevent config files and logs here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/77w0ssku5inavfg/AADXK4UBLjOZXoiYL2mK6Iaea?dl=0 THANKS!!! - Chris
  5. I have my system fully functional using Visual Pinball but when I use PinballX my addressable LED strips (2) one each side are not working, everything else works in Pinballx including rear flasher bar. Of course I am not an expert on the coding or xml, I do see there is an error loading the plugin in the log but can’t figure out how to fix it. I can register the object in Direct Output, I run the plugin manager in PinballX and it shows up but when I go to Configure it gives me an error that it can find path. I am sure this is something simple but I just need another set of eyes to look at it. I have attached files and logs. As always thanks to everybody for your help! Scott.
