Quoted from mima:
I don't care about the software part and I frankly don't see what your jibberish about any 128x32 solution has anything to do with Frankenstein that use a 192x64 display.
Quoted from Crash:
Listen, this defensive mudslinging has to stop. You and Dom are selectively leaving out major issues
While I'm a little foggy on the Lucky1 and Dom connection, I can't understand why the posting energy on this thread and the other one on Pinside doesn't go toward helping us guys who have these new DMD's from you to getting them to work!
"Crunchysue" has been having problems that go unaddressed and I've been fighting this problem for over 9 months now without a solution. I spent all this money and haven't used my pin for nearly a year now!!! WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? I see references were you both have regular jobs and I can certainly appreciate how challenging ANOTHER job to come home to can be. But this has taken WAY too long to resolve.
Our problems seem to be deflected to "It's our fault on our end." Or, "Something was already wrong with your pin to begin with. That's why the new DMD doesn't work." Or, words to that effect.
In my case, we wanted to try and swap in a new board and see if that was the problem. It now appears you don't even HAVE any boards. I wouldn't be so adamant about pointing fingers at you guys if I didn't have one of the best pinball repair persons on the planet working on this Frankenstein pin for me. "Crash" is an expert bar-none! If HE says he can see the issue, then you better believe it!!!
Not only am I disappointed and flustered with having all this money sunk into a useless DMD that has been sitting here idle for nearly a year, it REALLY bothers me to come down hard on two German guys. I lived two years in that country and have the utmost love and respect for ALL things German! And that includes you two guys. Don't soil my opinion of the German work ethic, intelligence and honesty. But dammit! It's time for you to talk with me and/or "Crash" and let's get to the solution!!! And don't EVER question the abilities of "Crash"!!!
It hurts MY OWN feelings to have to talk rough to you guys. It's time for damage control. If you want to sell these things then COMMUNICATE and without putting the blame on us. If something is wrong and you are fearful you made a mistake in development, then PRIVATELY communicate this to me. If you can't afford to buy new replacement boards, I can understand. Just TELL me and I'll keep it to myself that you are having problems.
