ColorDMD Displays is excited to announce multicolor support for Lord of the Rings (LOTR) pinball machines. This is the 14th multicolor release for the ColorDMD pinball display platform. A video preview of the colorize game animations is now streaming on YouTube! The color ROM for LOTR is targeted for release on our site by November 14.

Displays for LOTR leverage the same ColorDMD hardware platform used for all prevously supported games. Displays will ship in the same configuration as a "SIGMA display with SAM/Whitestar installation cables," and include the mounting bracket and cables needed for installation.

Multicolor operation for all supported titles is enabled through download and installation of new firmware using a USB flash drive. Instructions can be found on the SUPPORT page of our site.

NOTE REGARDING DISPLAY AVAILABILITY:
New displays from our current production run are beginning to roll off the line, and will continue over the next two weeks. We expect to add inventory for all display products by the end of the week, and will send a notice to our mailing list once inventory is back in stock on our site. Orders will be filled as displays are released from production.

Thanks for your continued interest and support!

Looks good! I may need to save my pennies

Edit: First! WOOHOO!

Somehow when I was watching people play this at Expo and League I didn't see the part with Gollum falling into the lava ...

People have been wondering what the first Stern title would be, and you can't argue with the choice, it looks great. File this one under "must have". Still holding out for Chris to do Metallica though!

Star Trek next please!

#5 5 years ago

I would guess that since Star Trek's code isn't mature yet that it wouldn't be on the list quite yet. New code might tweak the animations.

Let's agree.....Star Trek ASACF!!!!!!

As soon as code finished!

ACDC makes the most sense as it Sterns best seller.

Star Trek only has that tiny DMD screen. I think a full size one like Judge Dredd should be next. Way cooler animations too.

We are referring to the recent Stern Star Trek, which has a standard size DMD, not the Data East Star Trek with the tiny DMD.

You got something against Data East Star trek Captain Kirk?

#11 5 years ago

Very impressive....good choice.

#12 5 years ago

Judge Dredd. Update the older games in color...the new ones should ferment for a while.

#13 5 years ago

I wish they make one for TSPP

#14 5 years ago

Love the continued excellence from this company! I am SO ready for TSPP or Dredd!

#15 5 years ago

The color DMD looks awesome.

Now if you can also get that promo sound quality into my LOTR here is my checkbook.

#16 5 years ago

Next Stern title... MET please

Don't matter! He still knows what's best. 55 years for doubting...

I love that LOTR is getting the ColorDMD treatment and most of the scenes look great! On my computer(s), the ring animations look green instead of yellow/gold. Is this just the video encoding or is there some reason for this?

I would imagine it is just the way the video was shot. I can't imagine Chris purposely coloring the ring green

Randy colored this one, not Chris.

And yes, the ring is yellow in person. The video is made by pointing a camera at the screen, it's not directly captured from the source digitally or anything, so it looks like the yellow has a bit of a green cast from that.

You can see it on the opening Lord of the Rings text too, that's yellow, but it has a bit of a green look on the video. It's purely an artifact of the camera.

Looks awesome, does it require the LE ROM or will it work in the original release?

#23 5 years ago

I know what I'm asking for, for Christmas!!!!!

#24 5 years ago

Good point
I have a standard running a modified rom and pal w/ a shaker
will this interfere at all?

The ColorDMD doesn't touch your game ROM. Won't change a thing. When they talk about loading the ROM they mean the one for the actual color display.

No problems with shakers, or LE code, or anything else.

works with ROM ver 10.0 & 10.2

Oh noes Randy is my hero.

#28 5 years ago

Good choice on LOTR, thank you.

#29 5 years ago

LOTR to me is the BEST Stern choice.
So many more to go, like DREDD!

This is getting to be a very expensive habit! Seems like only yesterday that I bought one for my IJ.

#32 5 years ago

Too bad that Stern Playboy '02 isn't a more popular title. That would be the first and only ColorDMD for a Stern I'd purchase. Because it is the only Stern I plan on keeping...

#33 5 years ago

Ordered!

#34 5 years ago

Just ordered the One DMD to Rule Them All.

#35 5 years ago

This looks great, do you have a UK based supplier?

#36 5 years ago

On the way. Now, do I tell the wife when she gets home? Hmmm

#37 5 years ago

Order placed!

#38 5 years ago

#39 5 years ago

#41 5 years ago

Ordered!!!

#42 5 years ago

Whoot in before the rush!!!

#43 5 years ago

Was in about 5 min after the email hit.

#45 5 years ago

I'm in too

#46 5 years ago

Gonna be a lot of good looking LOTRs soon.

Trust me, while the video was cool, it looks better in person. The yellow will feel like yellow especially, I know it picked up a green cast from the camera.
