O.K. then something with the LS123 is not working. You can put the jumper back to 1-2 and disable the enhancer which will work without a problem for gottlieb. Enhancer is mostly for Stern machines.

ok I reverted it with the jumper using 1-2, even with the enhancer disabled. I still get the colors that are off like my previous video.
What is the LS123? would that make sense that my regular DMD works and not the pin2dmd?

I do have a spare display board, not sure if this could help for anything.

#453 1 year ago

With Gottlieb the LS123 make no difference. The problem with the colors might be caused by the rom version of your pinball machine.
I´m not sure but are the animations the new one but just with the wrong palette ?

#454 1 year ago

All the text is always white, it seems like its the new animation, however its only using like white and light pink or something.

Is there an easy way to figure out which version of rom I have? I cant seems to find a version on the eprom.

#455 1 year ago

boot it up with the regular DMD and it tells you on boot.

Is there anyone else with A094 that got their Pin2dmd working? What is the latest version of it?

#457 1 year ago

A-094 is the most recent

#458 1 year ago

Seems something is wrong with the PAL file. Please let someone send you a working copy of his files on the SD card and maybe try using a different SD card.

Quoted from lucky1:

I already tried that multiple times, even downloaded fresh files from Malenko first post and tested with 3-4 different sd cards adata, sandisk, kingston and another one. Results have been the same.

#460 1 year ago

Last test I can think of is to possibly change the power source, however not sure how that will help since the display seems to get power properly and shows something with jumper 1-2, just not in color.

I have another display board I can try, but if that was the issue the original display wouldnt work.

Starting to think there might be something wrong with the pin2dmd since I am running out of options.

#461 1 year ago

Power source is not the problem. Could you please check the status of the LEDs on the discovery board during ready set shoot.
Is there a green LED on next to the flickering blue ? We could also check your license file.

Sorry for the shaky video, hard to record with one hand and play with the others. Managed to get the ready shoot, then the vega hole and honda, then the car crush. I did not see a green led next to the flickering blue.

Has anyone had luck with Virtual DMD display with this title. I tried it but get flashing text and not the correct colors. I tried the fight2.pal and fight2.vni files in my /altcolor/sfight2 directory. also renamed them to pin2dmd.pal and pin2dmd.vin but no luck.

Thanks

#464 1 year ago

The dmddevice.dll from freezy currently does not support these colorizations. It is currently only working on pin2dmd hardware.

Ok....after having my pin2dmd installed for a few months, I'm noticing that I periodically get an old animations in grey scale. It eventually happens to all the characters except Sagat and Zangief (they always appear in color)

I even reseated all the connections and power source. My rom is A-094 and is up to date.

Any suggestions? Should I try re-downloading the files & reinstalling them on the mini SD card?

Thanks!!

That means that a trigger keyframe is missing in the project and it needs to be added. Maybe Malenko can check.

I verified with a friend who also colorized his SF2 Z& he is having the same issues. So everyone must be getting the same result...

Is this something that can be easily rectified malenko ?

#469 1 year ago

You'd need to do a data dump using the Pin2DMD tool. Basically a recording or what is going on behind the scene. Then indicate at what time the glitch occurred so he can take a closer look. I periodically get the original gray-scale animations but I don't care enough to seek resolution.

#470 1 year ago

yeah if you can provide a recording/dump I can check for additional triggers. I very rarely get the odd crummy old animation, but Ive done a ton of recordings and the keyframes are always the same.

How do I do a recording/dump?

#472 1 year ago

plug in the USB cable, open pin2dmd.exe and pick check the box to record. it'll spit out a file, just compress it and send it to me.

I tried a few USB cables and they don't seem to work. Spent the better part of an hour trying to get it to work. Also....my laptop also just kicked the bucket yesterday....so I think I'll just give up.

I was hoping to get it perfect before YEGPIN in May of 2018. I wanted to show off a recently shopped and fully colorized Street Fighter II at the show

#475 1 year ago

A common failure is the usage of the wrong usb port. You have to use the micro USB not the Mini USB for pin2dmd.exe.

I used the micro USB (little white entry)

Is sash on a hiatus? I sent him a pm Wednesday and it's marked unread. If he's overloaded or out of town for a bit is there another source to order from?

I dont know about Sash, but I want to stress that paypalling me is 100% optional, but if you want to http://paypal.me/Malenk0

Malenko, you should colorize GB for Pin2DMD - the color-DMD -guys are never going to release the color-code for Color-DMD, it seems

I'm not having luck with sash,

I see I can order on germangamingaupplies.com , but it's in German and I'm not sure exactly what all I need. Is there a US reseller besides sash?

#487 9 months ago

germangamingsupplies.com is run by Rappelbox, send him a pm. He doesn't have any for sale in the pinside shop so maybe they are out of stock at the moment.

Anyone have an updated link for where to buy the hardware for this? I went to the thread and all of the links resulted in 404's/dead-ends. I definitely want to try to upgrade / experiment .

Thanks in advance!

Have you reached out to UncleSash over at vpuniverse?

Sach and Rappel are the only 2 I know of. I just color games, I have nothing to do with the hardware side. Hope you get one, and enjoy it.

Sorry Roar I missed your last post. Will do and will let you all know what he says. Thanks Malenko - will be donating as well of course !

Yes it can, looking forward to receiving this e order I placed this week now that the mounting brackets are in stock

Just 1 FYI,
American addresses put the house # in front of the street name, like this

Tug MaHogoff
123 main st
Apt 17

The address listed in my email is like
T MaHogoff
Main st 123
Apt 17

The mail carrier will probably figure it out but we try to keep it as easy as possible for our government employees over here

Thanks again!

I purchased pin2dmd hardware from Rappelbox's website on March 22nd but still haven't received any shipping notification or update. I tried to follow-up via support e-mail and via PM on pinside multiple times with no response so far. Not sure if anyone else has had any issues with this in the past?

#495 8 months ago

Im in the same boat, I ordered an unsoldered kit on Mar 19th. To be fair, my order on his site says it could ship as late as 4/19 and has said that since it was placed. I was hoping it would be here by now but it's just one guy doing this, I'm not surprised at all it's taking this long.

#496 8 months ago

Roger - at least I know I'm not alone then. I'm definitely not worried about how long it might take to ship but am concerned since I haven't heard anything after multiple follow-ups (and the site was estimating 9-10 days shipping time for my item). Hopefully the US address didn't throw things off or something.

#497 8 months ago

Would love a plug and play option for this, who is going to sell one?

I want to just install, and power on. Nothing else.

Mine took 4 months. Very happy with it once it finally got here.

The first two months were pretty quiet. No response on here or via PM. After 2 months I reached out via Facebook messenger and shortly after that, I got a receipt, then a shipping number. So I tracked it via German Post and after 3 weeks it never came. Dominic looked into it, I'm still not sure if he had to ship me another or if it was found. Another 2 weeks and he said it was shipped. Another 2 weeks and the tracking info was updated as handed over to customs. 5 days later finally in my hands.

Now that I know what goes into the built I might try my hand and ordering preassembled controller boards from a guy here in the US and the panels form China and putting it together myself.
