We just bought LED for Apollo 13 last month. It looks great, so just made the purchase for LED for Kiss earlier today.

The LCD on Dots XL works perfect for me.

Quoted from thundergod76:

Yeah same here. I have five other games with colorDMDs LCDs. I prefer some on DotsXL and others on HiRes (aka cartoon mode). LCD all the way for me.

Also described in another thread; https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/colordmd-lcd-versus-led#post-3415037

Quoted from Dmod:

Pros/Cons:
LED: 128x32 discrete RGB LEDs. Small form factor. Brighter and more vivid colors. Fixed smaller size dots - can't take advantage of smoothing or other rendering modes. Susceptible to ghosting artifacts due to undesirable capacitive effects.
LCD: 1920x1080 backlit LCD screen (only a portion of the screen is used). Original proven design sold since early 2012. Pixels are used to draw dots. Six rendering modes (DOTS, DOTXL, TILE, 8BIT, SCAN, and HIRES). Large dots and smoothing modes minimize black space making text easier to read. Smoothing modes are popular for cartoon-like animation.

Help needed…posted this in the Color DMD thread but maybe you guys know something that may help….

Installed the color LCD. Triple checked all connections and looks right. Power on and the game boots…nothing on the display. Press the menu button to set it to Spike. Save and exit….figured display should come up but nothing. Power cycle the game and still no display. Press the menu button on the display and the menu comes up. Loaded the firmware and shows it’s loaded on the menu but still nothing on the display from the game…..what am I missing? Any ideas?

[quoted image]

Yeah dots would look better IMO. Very few games I think the scaling looks good. Simpson's pinball party...fine it fits the game. But for KISS I'll take the dots. I ended up ordering the LED.

#1560 4 months ago

The hires for some reason cut out portions of letters in attract mode. So I went XL dots, tiles weren't bad either

Is the code up? I don't see it. I sound like a broken record.

If you're getting menu it seems to be functioning. No signal from game though. Only thing it appears is the ribbon cable in proper position or not. Beyond that get a hold of Randy at color dmd. Worst case it may need repair or warranty if still new. Used correct ROM image? Chroma vs early ROM?

Just got done with some more trouble shooting…gonna get a new ribbon cable. Will post all the details on the color DMD thread….I know Randy sees these and helps where he can! Will also report here later once all is resolved.

I think your METLE has the same DMD ribbon cable to swap with between the games?

On my Metallica the display connector on the SAM board has hot glue from the factory. I know I could get it off but just gonna wait for the new cable.

Just wanted to follow up and give a BIG thanks to Randy at Color DMD…I just want to echo what many have said before but they are one of the few companies that stand behind their product and provide excellent customer service.

As far as the problem we are not sure what caused it. The ribbon cable is good and not the issue. Randy had me go through a series of steps and determined the problem was on the board for the display. New board is installed and it works perfect!

The color animations look awesome!!!

Hello everyone, I am very excited about the colorDMD release for KISS. Does anyone know of video showing the differences between the LED vs LCD for KISS? Or just simply video of the colorDMD installed on KISS? (Other than the promo video on the colorDMD site) Thanks!

I'm also interesed in a comparison between LCD vs LED for Kiss! Still couldn't make up my mind on which one to pick!

#1573 3 months ago

General consensus is LCD. There are more display options. The LED is Really bright with more space between each dot. I was on the fence as well but glad I went with the LCD. Its really just a matter of preference. No right or wrong decision. There's a few videos on YouTube. This thread helped me make my choice.

I will always go LCD because of the choices. The only thing LED has that's better is it sits flush just like the stock DMD.

#1575 3 months ago

I just got a Pro with 1.41 installed. Got the ColorDMD installed - wow! It’s amazing!

I’ve been trying to understand scoring etc.. with the glass off.
Question about the scoop. It only has one switch and it kicks the ball out when it goes in. So the switch works (it works in test mode too)
But I never get the lit award. Backstage stays lit as well as Extra ball.
I’m doing something wrong or not doing something right
Thanks for a “scoop tutorial”

Quoted from finnflash:

I bought LED for KISS since I have LED in my MET and some day they'll sit side by side. Right now, KISS is still wrapped up in storage.

LED takes a little getting used to if you've had LCD before. The dots are MUCH smaller, but the color vibrancy/purity is so much better and black is truly black. The form factor makes it look stock. One drawback is the brightness. They're so bright I needed to put a ND (Neutral Density - looks like window tint) lighting gel in front of it to tone it down a bit. I do wish there was a brightness setting.

I have LCD in all my other games, and run nothing but DotsXL on them. Don't like any of the other options on the LCD.

Definitely personal preference but I think most people would prefer LCD.

That was entertaining!

Going for huge supers in Kiss Army is epic - pinball doesn't get much better.

Often wondered how big a single super could get with everything set up perfect?

Maybe over 20 billion?

I am happy with my 1.2 billion super but would love to know how big is the maximum!

#1580 3 months ago

Damn amazing! 8 billion on a single shot. Funny that beating Rock City only awarded 200 mil.

Hello Everyone, I am looking for a little help and advise. I am a novice at pinball repair and wanted to reach out with a problem I am having. All of a sudden, after replacing some flipper components (coil stops, plunger assemblies, coil sleeves) not the actual coils, I am continually blowing the fuse on the Node 1 board. I don't really believe in coincidences so any help with a starting point to diagnose the problem would be greatly appreciated!
