For testing it might be helpful to set the device mode to DE128x16 which is the only correct mode for that configuartion. For Hook Enhancer needs to be set to ON which is default. It only needs to be set OFF for Checkpoint and TMNT. It can be tested on the bench by making a connection with a jumper cable from pin1 to pin 20 (reset) of the cpu connector. If it works you should get the version display of the ROM.

Silly question. Which Pin 1 are you referring to? Pin 1 on the CPU?

hi,

I made a couple of vpx tables with flexdmd and i use a second screen to put the flex dmd on. I'm really a noob with solder electronics and i have read many times lucky1 posts here about pin2dmd. but i'm still so confused what to order.  

I thought(2x):
P2.5 Indoor Full Color Led Display Module HUB75,160Mm X 80Mm, 64*32 Pixels, smd Rgb P2.5 Led Panel Matrix, Compatibel Met PIN2DMD|LED Displays| - AliExpress

and one time:
HD W62 75 RGB LED display controller, Full color LED teken module controlekaart, u Schijf en WIFI Draadloze controle|LED Displays| - AliExpress

I also couldn't find anything on aliexpress for the frame, where did you order the frame it has to be send to the Netherlands lol. 

Then use the software of pin2dmd or select it from vpx and then it works?

Am I thinking right or do I miss something and this is not going to work like this?

I hope somebody can help me out! thnx in advance!

Hey Guys,

 

I am working with @Rene368 on an update to the Sega EVO 192x64. Very minor changes but so far we are moving the data connector down and to the right a little bit. I have come across many people lately who have told me their stock ribbon cable is too short. After checking over a bunch of XL DMD's I noticed that maybe there was a version with a different data connector location. Sure you could say just buy a longer ribbon cable, but we both agreed that with a small tweak to the design, it could be made universal. René has finished the relocation but I wanted to check with you guys if you could see any issue to where it has been moved to. Obviously the pins go through the back of the PCB so it had to be in a location that wouldn't interfere with the LED panels. I have a picture of an original DMD and a (badly) photoshopped mockup of the new placement of the connector on the Pin2dmd.

 

The other things we are looking at are possibly changing the Mini USB to a USB C connector and also possibly changing the location of the USB and SD card reader if it isn't easily accessible at the top after the DMD is back in the speaker panel. As I don't have a Sega XL Machine on hand to check this, maybe someone with one could confirm the location is or isn't easily accessible for us.

 

If everything works out then we will be releasing the updated design to the community for anyone who would like to use it.

 

Thanks

I have chosen the location it currently has to have the connection to the CPU as short as possible, but your location should also work.

I have chosen that Mini USB connector because it is throughhole which is more resistant against physical damage.

From time to time I have Discovery and Nucleo users which ripped off the SMD USB connector from the PCB by accident, which is not repairable and they need a new controller. If you use a USB C throughhole connector like this https://www.reichelt.de/usb-3-1-typ-c-buchse-fis-usb-31-c-p304027.html, I´m fine with it.

It is easy accessible like it is.
