Look. I understand that you have no intention of marketing this thing... I respect your decision. That being said:

THANK YOU SO MUCH. Could you recommend any good ready to go/turnkey Pin2DMD suppliers?

#99 4 years ago

I apologize. I should have asked; which model?

#127 4 years ago

You'd specifically be looking for this guy:
I spoke with Rappelbox regarding the possibility of a USA group buy. Stay tuned...

#138 4 years ago
Quoted from boustrophedonic:

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

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

#140 4 years 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.

#142 4 years ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

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.

Group Buy Update: 6 people confirmed. Paypal payment is due to Rappelbox no later than July 12th. He will ship on July 14th directly to you.
Cost: $180 + $20 Shipping
PP address: [email protected]

#151 4 years ago

The same panel/setup as Malenko the OP. The only thing else you need is a tiny micro SD card ($6 off amazon) and the firmware from lucky1 which I believe carries a $10 license fee. Tap in power (which is easy to find on a gotlieb) and the ribbon cable from the DMD board, drop SF2 files from Malenko's google share onto the SD card, good to go.
Here's a YT video I found:

Here's an installation guide:

#155 4 years ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:

I sent rappelbox a PM 2 days ago.....just waiting to hear back from him before sending my payment.

PM'd you

#157 4 years ago
Quoted from lucky1:

Rappelbox wrote in the german forum that he was in hospital and needs some time to fully recover. So maybe you need to have a little patience.

Basically this. I PM'd ImNotNorm with this info as I wasn't trying to broadcast Rappel's personal situation.
The terms remain the same though; Payment by the 12th, shipping on the 14th

#161 4 years ago

Attention group buy folks: Would anyone be interested in delaying shipment for a few days so that Rappelbox can unlock/register our panels prior to shipment? This would mean that the units would be ready to roll upon arrival instead of having to wait for the unlock process to complete. Thoughts?

#165 4 years ago

Thanks for the clarification! I've made the executive decision to follow this path. This will reduce complexity and furthermore I damn well know that each and every one of us want to play with our new toy immediately vs waiting for the process to complete post-delivery.

#174 4 years ago
Quoted from cocomonkeh:

Arg I missed the group buy :/

Group buy closes on the 12th. That is when everyone needs to have payment to Rappelbox. We are pushing the shipping date back to the 19th as this will allow Rappel to send us what is needed to unlock the devices prior to shipment. If you want a panel please PM Rappel directly.

#179 4 years ago

ACTUNG! Today is that last day for the group buy. Please PM Rappelbox or Paypal him $200 to [email protected] if you want a panel. He plans to ship around the 19th assuming each buyer quickly participates in the unlock process.

#194 4 years ago

I'm detecting a pattern with ColorDMD...

#201 4 years ago

I just received mine this morning (I'm the guinea pig). I donated the funds to lucky1 and will await his response. If that goes well I assume Rappelbox will follow suit with the rest of the group.

#203 4 years ago

Attention group buy participants: The correct donation value via PayPal is 10 Euros, not $10 USD.

#205 4 years ago

I think Rappelbox is testing it out on me first (which I'm glad as we already discovered the currency issue )which was been resolved).
Update: lucky1 has returned my key file and it has been forwarded to Rappelbox. I'll post updates as we progress.

#214 4 years ago

If you forgot to include the code please PM lucky1 with you email address and personal code.

#219 4 years ago

I'm not the authority here, Rappelbox is. Nothing has shipped yet so I'd reach out to him directly.

#234 4 years ago

Appologies. I've been pretty buy lately. I'll PM Rappel and see what's good. I saw that he hadn't logged on here since the 20th. I hope he's okay as I know he was discharged from the hospital recently.

#239 4 years ago

Anyone here like German porn?
I was also sent a pic of a lot of shipping labels. Stay tuned for details.

Google the tracking number and select Canada post. I got the same message from Deutsche post. You need to track it via your countries mail service site.

Quoted from cocomonkeh:

Preemptive where is the best place for to get the 12v

#257 4 years ago

I really with those AC plugs located on the incoming power box were switched and not constant. That would be a slick spot to plug in a AC-DC adapter and run to various add ons... I could probably mod it so the sockets turned on with the main switch but at that point it's probably more trouble than it's worth...

gs3pow1[1] (resized).jpg

#259 4 years ago

Whhhhaattt?!? I'll check them when I get home. Shit, I have enough DC power supplies that I can use for this task. I'd rather do that than molest my machine.

#260 4 years ago

Anyone else have their unit clear customs? I believe mine is stuck and that is NOT a good sign.

#261 4 years ago

I'll be damned. I checked the AC power sockets and sure enough one is switch. I'm going to grab a AC/DC adapter and tap my DMD's power in that way!

#265 4 years ago
Quoted from Rappelbox:

The provided power supply is capable of using any input from 6 to 32 Volts so there are some options
Most important is amperage and fuses used on the power line you use! Since the panels could theoretically draw up to 7 amps (in fact the ofter use less than 1A) a decent supply is strongly recommended.

I have a [email protected] supply. I'm assuming 42W will be enough?

#267 4 years ago

Did you watch the video I linked to?

#273 4 years ago

Malenko is correct. You don't use that while plug with the Pin2DMD, only the ribbon cable. You can get power from anywhere you want provided the line you're stealing current from can support the draw (per Rappel's comments). So you have two choices:
1) The method from the video: Solder the hot/red wire to the 20V flasher circuit on the back board. Attach black/ground wire to any ground.
2) The Smithers' method: Plug in a AC/DC adapter to the switched AC port on the power box, wire that shit up to the Pin2DMD. I'm literally going to use a spare adapter I had laying around from an old Dymo label printer (ignore the red box).

Malenko's method is different because he already has a stand alone switching power supply.

Thanks for the pic. I'll take some as well when I get everything installed. I wouldn't have to worry about hitting ken. My ball never see's the ChunLi return...

#283 4 years ago

Malenko : What mode are you running. Gottlieb or Gottlieb 92?

#285 4 years ago

Works for me!
FYI - these panels come with taps:

#291 4 years ago

Tracking shows mine delivered. Unfortunately I have to get my hair cut at 5:30PM EST. DAMMIT! lol...

#293 4 years ago

So funny you should mention that! I was assuming based off youtube videos. I have the newest and there is Gottlieb 1, 2, and 3. Any idea which one to select? Here's a quick video:

The car crush is currently black and white. I'll toy around some more.

#294 4 years ago

Friendly reminder folks to please tip Malenko for his work. He put in over 190 hours into this colorization! I just kicked him some well deserved cash via PayPal.

#295 4 years ago

After some further testing using the Gottlieb V2 profile I'd say it's 98% there. Periodically it loses color on certain animation but when you have so many variations in firmware that's to be expected. Frankly I'm surprised Malenko was able to avoid this issue from happening more frequently. I'll be doing a dump for him so that he can examine any aforementioned instance.

#300 4 years ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:

was wondering if anyone could tell me if this will work for the DMD.

It'll work. Assuming there's nothing fancy in the supply that would shut it off if it was a foreign device.

Quoted from TimBoch:

I noticed that you connected your DMD power (red wire) to a 5V 15A connection, I have a 5V 16A option, would that be sufficient? Or would the 12V 4A option at the top be better. Also, I expect that I can just connect the DMD ground to either the ground in the back cabinet, which is only a foot away, or connect it to the ground on the power supply.

You can honestly use either. Personally I'd use the 12V as there would be less current used. Do not connect the ground to the pin. Connect both PIN2DMD power lines to the power supply.

#305 4 years ago

I'd check to see if the packages were insured. If so file a claim with the post service and use those pics. Hopefully you can get an entire replacement panel out of the deal. That really sucks. Do you think you can epoxy it back together to make it semi functional until a replacement frame can arrive?

#308 4 years ago
Quoted from ScottyC:

Gonna use some spare acrylic I have on hand and just router and drill one out

Well I'm impressed!

#323 4 years ago
Quoted from cocomonkeh:

Well it wasn't a flasher fuse it was a diode. So if anyone knows the strength of the backbox fisher diode, let me know
Tried powering it from the old dmd harness (12v) and it doesn't want to light up. I don't think it's getting enough voltage so I'll have to try the outside power supply option until I fix my flashers

Dude that made the YouTube install video said not to use that line as the voltage drop was too big. Use the 20v flasher line or a stand alone power supply. I measured the wattage and it never exceeded 5W. These panels draw virtually nothing.

Quoted from psychopat:

Just waiting for someone to share clear instructions on how to install it.

Did you watch the YouTube video I posted earlier?

What's the best way about update the ROM set?

#413 4 years ago

How does one go about updating their ROM(s) if they don't have access to a burner?

#420 4 years ago
Quoted from Malenko:

statictrance I could ship you my ROMs , then you could dump them for everyone and burn yourself a set.
Or would the ROMs you download for pinMAME work?

What Rom version are you running? Does your setup ever miss a keyframe (grey scale)?

#469 4 years 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.

Quoted from Malenko:

I've added a *lot* of triggers but it still happens on occasion.

Did you ever release an updated colorization or is the oringial scheme the final? BTW, thanks again for everything. Your colorization really allowed us SF2 owners to polish a turd.s

I have an issue that when I fire up SF2 the display doesn't always sync and it instead loads up the generic ColorDMD menu. If I cut power to the DMD and resume it will sync up. It's intermittent in nature. Could this be a ribbon cable causing the issue?

#644 9 months ago
Quoted from lucky1:

What do you mean with this ? Is it a display from the brand colorDMD ? This thread is about pin2dmd.

My bad. No coffee at the time of post. I meant pin2DMD. As far as I'm aware CDMD doesnt make a SF2 display

#646 9 months ago

Fair enough. I should have said the configuration menu

#648 8 months ago
Quoted from lucky1:

Did you set the devicemode to Gottlieb V2 ?

Yes. Any sometimes it boots just fine. Othertimes it boots into the configuration menu. While the pin is still on, I power cycle the display then it connects properly.
