Quoted from smitherssp:

I apologize. I should have asked; which model?

https://germangamingsupplies.com/RGBPINDMD-Display-Tyche_1

Quoted from Crash:

Great job Thomas! Any plans on doing other less loved Gottliebs, such as Cue Ball Wizard?

next up is T2, its the only other pin I own with a DMD. After that I'll look into colorizing using rips from vpin/pinmame/vpinx/etc
I'd LOVE to have a cueball wizard, but the one that went for salearound me was just a little too far out of my price range.

#102 1 year ago

That one doesnt have a Gottlieb/Premier/Capcom option. Which one did you use?

#103 1 year ago

Thank you for all the hard work and making this available for others Malenko!! I'm blown away by the hours and hard work you put into this project!!

Can we email you some donations instead of using paypal?

That one^

sorry I copy pasta'ed the wrong link :/

#106 1 year ago

Waiting for a video of a gameplay.

#107 1 year ago

Version 1.001 going to be uploaded in a few. A few animations aren't triggering on the real pin.

hmm, they dont seem to have a shipping option to the US.

edit: these guys have it and ship to us

https://www.pinballshop.nl/electronics-parts/dmd/pin2dmd-complete-rgb.pin.dmd-set-v3-display-ready-to-go/

On the fence about when to buy it, when I do I will def donate some dollars to the man Malenko

i dont know if its the language barrier or what but it seems kind of complicated to get one of these up and running just from trying to read thru the pages on it
http://pin2dmd.com/installation/

#110 1 year ago

I ship directly to the US, pinballshop.nl is a reseller of my boards

drop me a line here or buy it through pinside shops:

plug DMD cable into pin2DMD
run 5V to pin DMD
put sd card in pin2dmd with files

the end.

Yeah, just seemed like the file stuff to get on the sd card was convoluted but maybe its more simple than it read like. Have to get a special key code and stuff. I'll go through it all next pay day, buying my dad an old coca cola machine for fathers day so their goes the dmd money hah

#113 1 year ago

I personally know how hard Malenko worked on this project and the payoff for the SF2 owners/pinball community is huge. If you download the color file and you're in position to do so please consider a donation for his time and efforts. I don't even own a SF2 and I'm sending him a donation as I think it's hard work like this that keeps this community strong.

Nice work, Malenko!

you have to register the pin2DMD, so you do that and they send you a keyfile. you rename the keyfile pin2dmd.key and put it in the root of the SD card. As for the coca cola machine...... thats awesome! I'd buy one and fillit with water since I dont drink soda anymore :p

Right on

I have a hunch there will be more beer than coke in it when its all said and done

#116 1 year ago

I still have some keyframe issues , I wish I had beta testers :p

#117 1 year ago

feels weird updating so much post release, but I found out the issue.
When I trigger sequences using hashes from the recording they dont always play, when I trigger scenes using hashes from a vpin recording everything works as expected. SO much for being done, tack on another 10 hours of work :p

I have all the triggers fixed for the keyframes lucky1 provided me in a recording, but I am missing Chun Li, Guile, Vega, torpedo multiball, regular multiball, and vega's claw shot. Other than that its all squared away but I do need to fix Balrog and Blanka's animations. Files in the download link are updated.

I do have to redo the entire skill shot sequence with single frame triggers, and I have about 50 frames of that redone now.

oh and if you wanna chip in, http://paypal.me/Malenk0

EDIT: Added a folder called source files, so you can see how its done, learn a little, and make changes to anything you dont like!

#118 1 year ago

here is some gameplay footage, please ignore the messed up skill shot colors, Im only 1/2 done redoing the frames

Quoted from Malenko:

Problem is that slow USB connections lead to frame drops. V-Pin recordings always contain all frames.

#120 1 year ago

I have all the issues worked out that I can, lucky1 is going to take a look at the files and see if he can fix them (skill shot, vega's defeat, and the color masks for the defeated portraits are the bulk of the issues) but its very playable and very colorful

#121 1 year ago

Thank you! Paypal down payment sent. Sending more when I get the project completed. Can't wait to see this finished and running.

#122 1 year ago

there's like 2 little things left to work out, lucky1 has been an immense help with bug squashing. I've been updating the files as we go; the vpin, the real table, and the source files.

#123 1 year ago

So I'm assuming this will work with virtual DMD (external DMD feature) by patching the rom? If so... Look forward to it as this looks great!

#124 1 year ago

It is going to be working working with .pal and .vni virtual pinball export from pin2dmd editor. Patching the ROM is only working for Stern SAM. Only working with real pin2dmd right now.

#125 1 year ago

This is so amazing.

#126 1 year ago

As a newbie to pinball, could someone tell me what specific DMD I need??

Thanks

#127 1 year ago

You'd specifically be looking for this guy:

I assume a USA group buy includes Canucks as well?? (Here's hoping)

Ditto.

#131 1 year ago

So heres some pix and a slightly better video. There are a few palette issues on a real pin but everything works 100% with a VPIN (tested by lucky1 )

small palette issue on the barrel kick:
barrel kick.jpg

Post skill shot score display:

Flipper choice after defeating a fighter:

attract mode "replay score" screen:

Better gameplay video:

EDIT: If you want to restore the "Say no to drugs, users are losers" screen and remove the "Colorized by :Malenko" scene , just delete the two "Keyframe by Malenko" trigger keyframes. It wont hurt my feelings I promise!

It will replace this:

With this:

#132 1 year ago

Wow....just wow!

Putting an order in for Pin2dmd now.

#133 1 year ago

Final version is up (same link), I played through a few games and everything was triggering as expected along with the proper colors.
The glitches you seen the playthrough video above are no longer there and everything looks REALLY good. Just haven't had the time to record a new video.

I'm super proud of the end results and super happy that lucky1 was so helpful in both teaching and fixing things. Thanks to everyone who took the time to donate all added up I made 45 cents an hour not including the cost of the Pin2DMD or firmware registration (if that was included Im at like minus 60 cents an hour lol)

I hope everyone enjoys it, and I also hope if someone decides to try and color another game that the source files are beneficial to them. If someone happens to use the files and finds something not triggering or has incorrect colors/palette please do post and give me details so I can try to fix it.

I will try to record a play video tonight or tomorrow of the final version.

#134 1 year ago

Awesome, thank you!

#135 1 year ago

I'd be in on the group buy if it happens. Looks like a cool upgrade!

#136 1 year ago

I published the firmware with the fixes needed to make it work properly on the pin2dmd github repository.
https://github.com/lucky01/PIN2DMD/
Thanks for this project malenko . This is officially the very first DMD colorization for a Gottlieb pinball.
Thanks for finding the bugs and testing.

#137 1 year ago
Quoted from Malenko:

prefer to capture from real machines.
Sorry for the delay, Ive had to break the skill shot into multiple sequences because key frames repeat multiple times. Trying to get this done ASAP.

Quoted from lucky1:

Problem is that slow USB connections lead to frame drops. V-Pin recordings always contain all frames.

If you decide to do another Gottlieb this method will save you the hassle of finding a machine, but then again you wouldn't be able to test it very easily.

There will be. I'm working on gathering the final list and hope to have an update by tomorrow with final delivered pricing.

#140 1 year ago

I've messaged everyone who has expressed interest in a group buy. Please message me if you are interested and haven't yet received a PM from me.

T2 or sf2. T2 or sf2. T2 or sf2.....grrrrrrr.....can only get one at the moment.

You can pretty much buy two of these for the cost of the competitive product. Additionally Malenko the Magnificent is already working on a T2 colorization.

I know its cheaper. Has any one done a side by side comparisson of pin2dmd vs colordmd? Id like to see the difference. All the pics ive seen look like pin2dmd has very visible lines seperating the led panels. That could just be the lighting, thats why id like to see them compared.

Also, Id like to see some t2 example to sway me this way. Sure, the $150 savings is killer, but will I prefer the coloring of taxman over malenko or vice versa?

Edit: Just saw the examples. Not sure which way to go still.

You guys are making this really hard with all these choice! Jerks!

Taxman did an amazing job. The end results will be similar (we're both basically filling in a coloring book) but I plan to use less blue in my colorizations. ColorDMD will do the video mode of T2 better than Pin2DMD can (as of now)
