Wrong and wrong..
Pin2DMD color editor allows basically unlimited colors on WPC...it is not just limited to the 4 color\shades. You can have up to 16 colors per frame...and then change those 16 colors in the next frame if you want to. You can also add and replace animations..single frames...etc with custom clips or drawings. You can build an entire new graphics library in ANY color if you wish.
The best thing about it you can change the color of every pixel to ANY color your want..and not limited to what the WPC ROM displays. My HS2 will soon have a Countach instead of a Diablo among other custom scenes
What is 'stupid' is telling someone it's limited '4 color mode palettes'...which is a flat out lie
It is cute..I had color in my Family Guy 3 years before ColorDMD did. I also have custom scenes that aren't possible with colorDMD.
Quoted from Taxman:
Because there is no comparison.
Sorry, those 4 color mode palettes look like garbage. Maybe it makes some screens a little more interesting than orange but many screens it just looks stupid because the 4 color pallet just does not fit what colors should be there.
To save a few dollars and have to go through the hassle of pretty much building it yourself rather than a nice plug and play system. ColorDMD also offers nice blending modes on the LCD version, a massive library of full colored supported games and support that can't be beat.
It is cute to tell someone how wonderful it is to program it yourself. But from the questions I see from people about trying to get them to work I think many of these things have been abandoned and tossed in a drawer out of frustration.
