Make sure which Rom you need. Chroma or ColorDMD

Talk to Randy too. He's the best at helping the customer figure out what's wrong.

#202 2 years ago

Ok I've got my ColorDMD working but it is in the grey scale.
I have been into the colour menu and it is at colour 60. I can change it to red blue green ect....... but not all the correct colours at once.
What am I doing wrong.

#203 2 years ago

Sounds like the ROM file isn't loaded from their website, or possibly the wrong one is loaded.

#204 2 years ago

Sounds to me like you have the sigma file loaded.

1. Determine which display you have. Chroma is the newer LCD and LED displays. If you bought it new recently it's a good chance it's one of these. ColorDMD is the older style. I believe the website may be able to help you determine which one of these it is by physical features.

2. Download the ROM associated with your display for your game.

3. Copy onto a FAT32 formatted memory stick. The file must read chroma.rom or colordmd.rom exactly. I usually only have this on my stick to avoid anything that could cause confusion.

4. Install flash drive. Turn on game. Hold down left most button until screen turns off. Wait about 30 seconds and the screen should come back on.

Enjoy!

What's happening at around 2 min 38.5 sec mark? Looks like a hand moving maybe, before the doors open?

Yes, it's an arm reaching out through the door.

Loving the new software, really nice.

I am installing a color DMD in Walking Dead. I removed old DMD, it had no ground strap. Only the speaker has a ground strap. Warnings on the color DMD say to ensure it is grounded. Has everyone been moving the ground strap from the speaker to display? Or is the color DMD fine not being grounded?

Your speaker panel should be made of metal which is grounded so no ground strap needed.

Thanks! I'll kill zombie you last during the apocalypse.

Just got done installing mine and yeah I didn't have a ground strap either other than what's on the speakers which are bolted to the metal panel.
Everything fired up fine & after dl'ing the Chroma file it looks awesome.

Can someone tell me if I need to buy the "Shield/Standoffs for Metal Speaker Panels" when installing the LCD ColorDMD in a TWD Pro?

#219 2 years ago
Quoted from Spyderturbo007:

Yes, the shield/standoffs are needed for all newer Stern games with metal speaker panels.

Thanks for your help and for emailing me on a holiday! I'll be placing my order shortly.

Spotted a glitch today. The colour wasn't right on one of the numbers during the Woodbury selection screen. Latest firmware installed.

How did you get the Woodbury scoring so high? I've owned the game since it came out, and I don't think I've ever seen a 5 million reward.

Thanks, I'll make sure that gets fixed for the next update.

As you keep collecting the Woodbury award the next one is a million more. I had heard you can get an extra ball but I didn't see it. I got it up to six or seven million.

Hi,
How to install the hardware?
I noticed I had a red plexiglass in front of my dmd. So I remove it.
Must I install a clear plexiglass or can I install my LCD without clear plexiglass?
Thanks

You should replace the red shield with a clear one for a finished look but it's not necessary.

How is it called? I would like to find it in Europe if possible.
Thanks

Édit: is it this?

Yep. That's it.

I found this one too

Thanks...so it would wait this week-end!

#234 1 year ago

The display shields for wood speaker panels and metal speaker panels are different sizes. Anything that supports whitestar or sega games (which had wood speaker panels) won't be correct for TWD.

You can check with ColorDMD resellers (Pinball Palace UK, Ministry of Pinball, Pinball Universe) to see if they have any shields for new Stern games with metal speaker panels in stock.

#235 1 year ago

Thanks
PU is selling exactly what I need, I have metal panel on both, TWD and MET.
Thanks

It's confusing because they say it fits games with metal speaker panels, but that is also works with Whitestar?

Clear plexiglass received and dmdcolor installed.
Really great to have anything else then red!
I noticed that the v3.3 is different from the video example on dmdcolor website, less bright colors like the blue of the well. Maybe not the same rom update I guess otherwise I get a problem ?
I need now to experiment the different display modes and the best for me.
What did you choose?

Colors on the videos never look quite right. Light is hard to film properly.
