You mean 30 minutes. Eric is super fast at coloring games.

The Black Crowes, perhaps too obvious to be Black Rose?

I'll take Black Rose (LED) for $370, Jim.

#3060 11 months ago

Sweet, I just picked up a Black Rose two weeks ago. Good timing!

#3062 11 months ago

And that is a bummer. I hope to pick one up at some point in time.

Yeah and here at this time I have the money. Just watch when I DON'T have the money it'll come out.

just buy one and put it in there until its released? if you have the money now and that is what you want to have with it

#3065 11 months ago

Will we be given the answer to “Geometry Escape” when this is officially announced?

It’s giving me more anxiety not getting the answer to that than knowing what 72 is going to be (and I have a Black Rose with Color DMD already installed and waiting)

I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to get that puzzle figured out.

Spend it now!! Buy a Sigma display and enjoy any single color you want the display to be while you wait on the full color ROM.

I know but I want full color NOW.

Perhaps "escape" is noted so that Polygon is a play on "Polly gone" for Polly in Black Rose. Not sure. Perhaps the angles, colors, etc. are red herrings?

#3069 11 months ago

Yarrrrrrr.

#3070 11 months ago

So glad I installed a Sigma display in my Black Rose a few weeks ago..!

For those in the know, is there any reason why Capcom games would be difficult to colorize?

Just haven't gotten to it yet. Needs a bit of work to get the signal 100% right. There's also the issue of mounting a display in those games. It's either a very fancy new bracket to be able to mount all the bits to, or you have to mount the display with the board essentially out of reach inside a metal box so updating and adjusting is impossible. We (some friends and I) mounted an LCD in a Big Bang Bar just to experiment with it. Turns out the LCD fits fine, but we had to re-loacate the ColorDMD board on some adhesive standoffs to be able to reach the buttons. Another bunch of guys engineered new mounting boards for all the capcom parts, but that's not an official ColorDMD product at this point.

TLDR: Randy has to tweak things for the signal to be 100% and the mounting is problematic.

you are welcome to Airborne when the time comes.

That game has GREAT animations!

#3075 11 months ago

Yes. I am waiting. There is a bit of flickering with the current Sigma, but at least I can choose any color I want.20170923_084923 (resized).jpg20170923_084254 (resized).jpg20170923_085233 (resized).jpg

#3078 11 months ago

It's officially official! Congrats Black Rose owners!

Screen Shot 2018-03-05 at 12.05.45 AM (resized).png

That's 72 games down, 72 more to go! Congrats to the whole ColorDMD team for reaching this landmark!
Also, it's hard to believe, but there are only 5 B/W games left on the list!

#3079 11 months ago

Black Rose awesome! You know what else is awesome....

"In addition to Black Rose, Eric has been hard at work on another title that will be revealed later this week and previewed at the Texas Pinball Festival in March!"

What's left? Jack*Bot, Hurricane, Who Dunnit, NBA Fastbreak, ... and, uh, Ticket Tac Toe?

Not gonna lie; wasn't fun to work on. Technical frustrations and REALLY crude pixel art to color on. Took longer to do than it should have because I kept dragging my feet on it.

which was harder/worse? Gilligan's or Black Rose to colorize

Bill, you tease us.

ColorDMD drop us next title hint!!!

Eric, thank you for all your hard work.

#3087 11 months ago
Quoted from Sethman:

Black Rose. By a mile. The displays on Gilligan are pretty basic.

The transitions in the attract mode were a huge problem. Took me 3 weeks to come up with a way to do those that worked well. That sucked. The explosions when the 'replay' awards and ship sinking animations play were very problematic. The game doesn't make much use of the 3 shades of brightness, most things are full bright for the foreground and dim for the back. None of this matters to the consumer. I just hope it looks good enough that Black Rose owners are happy with it. Ericpinballfan did beta testing on it and seems happy with it.

Re: that other thing, I've been dropping hints all over the place. Probably more than Randy wishes I would. heh! See you at TPF!

Eric out did himself on this one and deserves a Twipy award for dedication to pinball!
The explosion transitions are awkward and he was able to isolate and color them. This game looks amazing in color and brings it new life and much better to play. The video modes are over the top and Polly is just beautiful.
Randy gets some street cred to with figuring out registration issues and eliminating some blinking.
FYI, Ive mounted a few of these LED displays now. Very easy, dont let it dissuade you from buying one. Control board comes off easy and monitor comes with 4 stand-offs to mount to back of white swing door.
I reccomend 1/4 inch or 3/8 sticky back rubber seal around face of display. Prevents GI light bleed on display.
Ill post some pics later today.

#3089 11 months ago

I used a really thick 1" 'expanding' weatherstripping foam on Gilligan and Black Rose.

#3090 11 months ago

I'm sure there's a theme in here somewhere.
