So I just replaced the SEGA 192x64 display in my Frankenstein using the DMD Extender and the 17" lcd. Amazing!!!

Easy to follow instructions to build the mounting panel, and getting everything transferred over and connected was really very easy.

Anyone want to buy a 192x64 Cherry display with minimal outgassing?

I am still fiddling with the colors but here are some pics and a quick video.

Looks great! Thanks for reading my guide.

Thought about hooking up a HDMI splitter to have the LCD panel inside and a HDMI jack on the back of the backbox to hook up to an external output device, but this Frank is being sold!

Hi David.

Is there support for PNG or something other than BMP for the background images? Also, is there support for more than 99 files?

I have what I would like at this point but as individual BMP files they sit at 800KB but as PNG (also supports transparency) they are only 86KB for instance. Loading 99 BMP files takes a while on startup.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks.

Haha! Yes I guess that would be a better approach. Thanks for responding

Might as well add a pic of what I have been working on.

20" IPS LED display with DMDExtender and PI etc... The still images cycle above the DMD feed.

Just CNC'd a custom speaker frame to showcase the full display, trimmed in aluminum for the top to replace the plastic H channel, speakers not installed at the moment of cours. I may finish off the bottom silver portion of the display bezel but no rush. I just have the translite hanging inside behind the display for now. Need to create a new BG image and will use Lexan with appropriate trim for it to replace the old one.
