The idea of being able to patent software as basic and simple as this is crazy. I can't stand the current patent system, how can you hold a patent on hashing a key and looking it up. What software does not do this? Just because they got issued the patent does not mean they could defend it.

Please do not give him any more possible projects. I have been trying to find anything that will let me colorize my Jurassic Park. All of these projects are really confusing. I feel like I have been waving around a few hundred bucks for several years saying will someone please give me what I need and take my money. No luck so far, in the end I think it will be ColorDMD they just seem the most organized.

Quoted from lucky1:

Why don´t you take pin2dmd which is preinstalled on pinballsp's dmdst32 hardware and already used in 700 installations? User colorizations have already been done for many pinball machines using pinball browser or pin2dmd editor including some which are not available from colorDMD. Stern StarTrek and Gottlieb StreetFighter II for example. There is already a large community which can help you with your project.

I could just never find an online store with all the details and info on exactly what you need. I heard you get 4 colors, some said you can get more, I just never found a good example or place to purchase. I did ask around at one point but was told you get panels from X board from Y software from Z. I guess I was wary of just buying from unknown sources.

Finally a pic with actually colorization, then you went right back to this endless posting of some kind of weird board porn. How many pics of boards does one thread need?

Quoted from flynnibus:

It's not hashing that is patented... it's the method of using that existing tool in a novel **process** to solve a specific challenge. It's the idea of using it in this manner.
Lookups and hashing are not novel - using them within a specific process to address the problem of how to identify and separate p, and replace the dynamic content is.
That is the flaw in steve's argument. Colordmd does not lay a claim to hashing - it lays claim to the solution to the specific problem. Which is patentable and has passed that check multiple times.

This is a great post, I myself as a software engineer have thought, how can you patent hashing something and looking it up. I have wondered the viability of the patent. Now it is very obvious that they are infringing on the patent and those infringing are just using a lot of misinformation to try and make their case.
