    Due to system limitations searching with words of 3 or less characters will not return results. For instance; Doctor Who.  This will not return results as the system is trying to search for both Doctor AND Who in which Who will not be found as it's a 3 character word.  To find Doctor Who; you'd search for either Doctor or "Doctor Who". 

    Search Tips:
    For specific searches; enclose your search with quotes. Example: "Doctor Who" or "Addams Family".

  1. Hello, I have been on this site for a couple months now learning and listening, I am in the process of putting a plan together for my virtual cabinet and I believe the last component is the DMD display. I am very interested in the colorizations and have been playing with the PIN2DMD Editor for a couple weeks. I began coloring the Royal Rumble rom as I have a real Royal Rumble pin and my hope would be to colorize the real pin as well. I have a couple questions if you don't mind helping a newbie out? The first is are there any Royal Rumble WIP's out there? I would hate to step on anyone's toes? Secondly, as I do not have a PIN2DMD built yet I have been doing everything on the editor exclusively and I have no idea if I am doing this correctly? or how to handle the "dynamic" content? I have watched the tutorials online but they only help so much, I believe there are some things I am not comprehending. If I shared my Royal Rumble XML project, would any of the more experienced community members be willing to offer assistance to guide my efforts? Thanks in advance, this site has been extremely helpful!
  2. So, I've moved onto the next colorization while DJrobX is tweaking the keyframing on Royal Rumble.........Star Wars Data East Time! I got all of the attract mode colored and moving on to the gameplay, this DMD is not as intense as Royal Rumble (I Hope!) So I'm hoping to finish in a month maybe two...depending on the family schedule. Here are some scenes to tide everyone over, Thanks!
  3. Hello All! I hope everyone had a tremendous holiday season! I got a little time off and was able to get the batteries recharged so I thought it would be nice to get back into a little "Dot Coloring" as Malenko would say, so I present to you the next solo project I'm working on.....Stern's .........The X-Men! This will take me some time as I only have so much free time between career and family so I ask that you be patient and look at my track record of finishing projects I start. I promise it will be worth the wait and you will see the usual attention to detail as my previous works. Star Wars & Royal Rumble. P.S. If you have an X-Men project already started please do not post your work on this thread, please start your own. Thanks for you Understanding! Some previews to enjoy!

  5. Hello everybody, i like the PIN2DMD very much and in my Last Action Hero real Pin i have installed and use the colorfiles in progress by Dtatane. I also have an TOMMY real pin under rework. I would like to install an PIN2DMD also. But i don`t find colorisation for real pin here. Did anybody do this alright ? I see the collection files from Lucky1 with standard colorisation for many pins. Did anybody use it in TOMMY and can say how it looks ? I have to rename the pal file, but there is no fsq file. Where do i get an file like this for TOMMY ? Thanks in advance and kind regards from Germany Holger

  17. This is a copy pasta of the pinside thread :/ Hey kids! Malenko here again starting another Pin2DMD colorization. I figured I'd do another WIP thread to keep me motivated to actually finish it. Ive been color masking a ton of stuff, no need or desire to redraw everything like I did with SF2 , the animations in T2 are actually *REALLY* good. I cant even list all the stuff left to do, but I will attach some animations for things that are done. Done so Far: Test Screen GrandChampion Top Marksmen Shoot again words (not the elevator scene yet) Load the Gun Sequence Shoot for Jackpot Sequence HunterKiller crosshair animation HunterKiller explosion (I will probably take the time to draw the HK stuff by hand) T800 with lightning Bolt in attract mode "Color by Malenko" replacing the say no to drugs screen Free Play / Push Start (will change my machine to coins and capture that too) Arnie holding the shotgun (not firing, yet) Credits (with special shout out!)

  19. Version .05 FINAL


    Author: Thomas Malenko Credits: Me and WOB really. We're awesome. Instructions: extract the rar file to your vpinmame\altcolor\ folder for the Gilligan's Island Make sure you set the rom language to English, other languages will likely have issues with text triggering Donations welcome and much appreciated: https://paypal.me/Malenk0 Please do not share or upload these files somewhere else, lead the people to this site instead.
  20. Here is a short introduction to the coloring features of pin2dmd with the editor. There are currently three ways to color a animation. All are controlled by keyframes. The first step is to find a keyframe at the beginning of a animation scene which is unique and hits reproducible. To achieve that you can either use a plane or a combination of plane and mask. 1 of 10 masks can be defined to blank out areas which are dynamic and lead to unreproducible keyframes. To use a masked keyframe you have to activate the Mask checkbox choose or edit one of the masks and assign a keyframe with the Mask checkbox activated. If you found a usable keyframe you can use it to either 1. Simply assign a palette (Add PalSwitch) (same color depth as the original) 2. Start playback of a replacement scene (Add FrameSeq) (16 colors) 3. Add content and/or color information to the scene (Add Color Mask) (16 colors) For a PalSwitch you can assign the duration how long the palette should be active until it switches back to the default palette. You can play forward in your recording and press fetch duration at the point you want to switch back to the default palette. You can change the colors of a palette by ctrl clicking in the color you want to change. To generate a FrameSeq you can cut a existing scene using mark start / mark end / cut. Normally the starting point is equal to the picture used for the keyframe. Then you edit the scene with a 16 color palette. You can change everything here To generate a Color Mask scene you also use mark start / mark end / cut and then activate the ColMask checkbox After that you can also use the edit tools, but the content coming from the recording is not editable but you can modify the colors of areas by assigning a different color group. You have 4 groups of 4 colors here. Colors 1-2-3-4 are the standard/original colors. e.g by drawing with color 5,9 or 13 you change the color of pixels having color 0 etc. Since Color Mask needs to be frame sync to the content coming from PinMame/Real Pinball machine it is the most complicated to be used. Preferably use option 1 or 2 and use option 3 only for scenes with dynamic content like score numbers. Since Version 2.8 the recordings can be done with the official vpinmame build by creating a DmdDump folder in the folder where vpinmame.dll is located and activating both Show DMD and Use external DMD in the tables option menu. To load them as a animation in the editor you need to gzip the txt file using e.g. 7zip with gzip as compression method. 7zip can be found here http://www.7-zip.org
  21. Version 1.0.0


    Lucky1s color work is fantastic! I've been spending quite a bit of time getting all of my DMD displays optimized with your EXTDMD and palletes and wanted to share/contribute. I took his original pack and then organized them by color and found the best stern rom replacements for different color themes and added a bunch of new games. There are about 296 folders in this archive For any replacements, I copied the original pin2dmd in the rom folder as a backup. The stern DMDs, even the not color patched ones look much better I think with these. This set does assume you patched the ones with color rom versions as well. Be sure to backup your altcolor directory to revert any of your customizations.
  22. Hi everyone, You may have heard a lot of Serum these last days and you're wondering if you could start your own colorization project. To help you getting started with the Colorizing Tool, I've prepared video tutorial to explain how it works. From the basics : - How to dump a file - What is fixed & dynamic content - How to use the tools and to colorize To the usage of the unique features of serum like : - Shape mode - Gradiant - Color rotation There's also an example in which I'm just colorizing one frame to show you how I'm using the software ! So don't be shame, have a look, and get started with your colorization project ! And don't worry, we're here to help in the Discord channel of Serum : https://discord.gg/aK2dNaB6xR
  23. Version 0.8.5


    This is the 2nd beta Changelog: **************************************************************************************************** Version 0.8.5 - keyframes added - minor color correction for real pinballs - starting of orc bumper coloring **************************************************************************************************** Version 0.8 - initial beta release - around 80% of all scenes done - overall playable and mostly working, some glitches here and there

    Hi, Please find enclosed the final version of Junk Yard for Realpin ! Thanks to all contributors who kept me motivated until the end to cover 100% of this project. A donation will be highly appreciaited as it really was a tough one, and I hope you will like the results ! You can use the BeerMe button on VPU or click here : Here'a a video I've made for v1.1 (the minor bugs have been corrected since then) :
  25. Hi, I need your help. I got two problems. I bought a POTC and wanted to change the dmd to color with pin2dmd. I bought a pin2dmd evo and received the activation key. I put on the sdcard (16gb): the key (E.....key), the color files (pin2dmd.fsq,pin2dmd.pal). In the onbord menue I changed the System to Stern SAM (then I had the pin2dmd.dat file on the card). When I connected to my POTC the pin2dmd Disyplays the normal "PIN2DMD" and "STERN S.A.M." but no POTC Display. The data cable should be inserted correct (just in case, I turned it once, but no change). With the original dmd everything works fine. After that I put the actual update file on the SDcard. The pin2dmd made the update (update o.k on sdcard), but still wasn´t displaying anything from my POTC. After that I tried a new SDcard (32gb), which gave the same results. Now I tried it once again with the same update file on the new SDcard. The pin2dmd showed "update", then the display went black and stayed black. Now it stays black, the LED on the back is on. I tried two different power sources, I tried the old SDcard, I tried it connected to the POTC or without. No change. I pushed the reset button. The pin2dmd stays black. I would appreciate any help, thanks in advance
