Anyone else interested in a Color DMD for Black Rose?

It's cool that Judge Dredd came out, but all I want is a Color DMD for Black Rose!

Maybe if enough people show interest there could be a chance for next year?

Really would be easy to fit behind the back glass... just have to remove 3 bulbs and have a small black "u-rail" piece that would screw onto the bottom front edge of the head to space the backglass out a little bit.

You could even program the 3 removed lights to be part of the Color DMD.

I mean c'mon...

Tales of the Arabian Nights only had 3,128 machines made

Black Rose had more than 500 more! 3,746!

Monster Bash had only 3,361

Attack from Mars only had 3,450

It's time for Black Rose!

FWIW I saw that Judge Dredd was partially fan built. Does anyone know what I can do, or what the Black Rose fan base can do, to help make a Color DMD for Black Rose a reality?

Is there a developer kit?

Please reply if you are interested buying a Color DMD for Black rose or interested helping make one.



P.S. I included some pics to show how easy this would be.

my Bro has that title & I love it!! & it does have a lot of video displays & modes in it , would really benefit from a color display ....... hope they do make it for BR

I'd be in for sure. However, since it's not a normal DMD set-up (as you've shown), I'm doubting it would get done.

Let's hope ColorDMD proves me wrong!

I would buy one no question

-1 for Black Rose

I don't own one

#7 7 years ago

I'm assuming you naysayers are saying "No" just because you don't have one.

#8 7 years ago

I also would buy one. Love this game and it has integral video modes.

Black Rose could really do with a colour DMD in my opinion! I'd certainly buy one for my machine!

A lot of the video modes and animation don't even make full use of the four-or-so shades of orange the standard DMD offers, so a colour DMD would be a whole lot more beneficial!

Oh come on! There's gotta be more people out there that want a color DMD for Black Rose!


#11 7 years ago

Yep I'd be interested

#12 7 years ago

You bet I'd be in.

Seeing the ships sink or swimming away from a nasty shark in color would be totally rad!!!

I'd be interested to see one. For me, not all games would benefit from a color DMD (I do own the game).

#14 7 years ago

I'm in. I think it would look really nice on there...

#15 7 years ago

Would mess with the backbox lighting which would put off a lot of buyers.

I'm in for one. I'm even willing to help color it.

I'd be totally down for one, with all the different video modes it would be great. My question is why can't it be made the same size as original? Either way I'd still buy one.

Quoted from Weaser15:

I'm not positive but I believe color Dmd uses a standardized size screen , they don't build each one individually for each title , just the file that you load onto it
