    Quoted from epthegeek:

    Come on now. Having a color display is a nice plus. A little bling. It doesn't change the game in any way, it still plays the same.

    I really like color dmds, but I don't think it would make me keep a game. I still plan on selling mine.

    It sounds like you would be a very pleasant person to work with.

    Yeah...but he's right your clues suck pinballs....

    Need to get Robin to add an emoticon that looks like the SarcMark - then these sorts of misunderstandings can go away.

    Why Randy didn't link that, I don't know.

    The temptation to buy is gone since I sold my TOM. Thanks ColorDMD.

    Quoted from Dmod:

    Congratulations to DCFAN for solving the puzzle and winning a ColorDMD T-shirt!
    But did you guys catch any other clues or red herrings?:
    In the second hint, the posting of Bart and Homer was an obvious misdirection (a magician's trick). Another was the hint itself... The designer is still "in the game," an allusion to Tron that many people seemed to miss. I have to admit the image of Ritchie in Fish Tales was a fortunate but unforeseen benefit.
    In the third hint, the "key" feature is Trunk Escape. The word key was in quotes... "Escape" is a key on a keyboard. At the end of the hint, we also told you "the big reveal" was coming... the end of a magic trick.
    Hope you enjoyed playing! ToM video is coming shortly!

    I'm thrilled as I have a TOM on the rotisserie and will finish a nice high end Brass, CC restoration .This will be the cherry on top.

    Don't make any plans to come over for charades though.

    What are the reasons colorizing can't be combined with upscaling? Seems like if those 2 could be combined it would be incredible.

    #214 5 years ago
    Quoted from frolic:

    I'd guess it's the CPU power it would take to do both VS the amount of available power on their current hardware design. But that's just a guess. In addition, I suspect smoothing of two colors (or more, really) next to each other would be much more complex than just a single color.

    #215 5 years ago

    To me dots look better because it looks like you are looking through a screen which gives the picture the illusion of having more detail. Right now the smoothing is cool but the very low-res nature of the image leaves some nasty jaggies.

    #216 5 years ago
    Quoted from epthegeek:

    In addition, I suspect smoothing of two colors (or more, really) next to each other would be much more complex than just a single color.

    In theory the color information could actually lead to some smarter smoothing algos though.

    I care not, I'm not a fan of any of the smoothing, the color dots are bad ass and all I want!

    #217 5 years ago

    Same here. Happy with the color dots but the smoothing does look good in black and white on my TZ.

    Quoted from Aurich:

    I agree
    color dots for me as well, all the way

    #219 5 years ago
    Quoted from pauloz:

    Just to confirm, if there are color dots, you cannot do smoothing, correct?

    #220 5 years ago

    That is my understanding Sigma is "Blending"... Color Dots Firmware replaces the stock Sigma firmware thereby replacing the "blending" functionality.

    #221 5 years ago
    Quoted from RDReynolds:

    Just to confirm, if there are color dots, you cannot do smoothing, correct?

    Correct. You can only have smoothing in a single color at present and can only have color dots on supported games.

    Guess I will not have a ColorDMD for TOM in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Bummmer!!

    Yeah, a full day to play pinball and its all in boring orange!! Its killing me, I need ToM color!

    #224 5 years ago

    #225 5 years ago

    I really like the color DMD's but think my TAF isnt worth the upgrade. If there will be one released for LOTR i will buy it within seconds hahaha

    Right now, I have red gel in front of my DMD on TOM, Judge Dredd, Corvette, and TZ. They all look good with red.

    Sigma support for Stern is released now assuming you are just wanting a single color.

    The red looks good, better than orange... I already have a colordmd in Tom, just waiting on the update file

    Quoted from nerbflong:

    Uggghh....I should have bought one when CFTBL was released. I had a feeling TOM was next.

    #231 5 years ago

    Have them on AFM, MM, STTNG and TZ.

    Would get them for my Sterns if they become available.

    Quoted from pauloz:

    Support for Stern games with SAM system is already there with Sigma if you want to make your own mounting cable and modify the bracket. Otherwise that is due out by early December.

    They are building more as we speak, and they will be available soon.

    Not soon enough. I wanted one 2 weeks ago when color ROM was announced for TOM.

    You will probably be able to get one before they actually release the color firmware, and have it ready. They will be back in stock later this month or early december. Just keep an eye out, and order one as soon as they have them.

    1 week later

    Dmod said on another thread that the ROM for TOM would be uploaded by Saturday.
