    Hey guys. Just want to make sure I’m doing this correctly. I had a color DMD in a stern game that I am moving into a Williams Indy. Looks like I need a different power cable. Is this the only thing I need to order?

    Anything else needed or that I might be missing?

    Correct. That is all the hardware that is needed other than flashing the display with the Indy color ROM.

    Perfect that’s what I thought. Thanks for the quick reply.

    Actually not correct or not the cheapest, there is a cable you can buy from Marco for about $7 that converts power

    Quoted from Jgel:

    Moving color DMD from Steam to Williams game.

    I'm pretty sure the humidity from steam is not good for it. It may not work in the Williams game.

    Oh man. Stupid autocorrect. Fixed

    Hmmm. I feel a bit scared not using the cable from ColorDMD. Anyone else use this?

    You can use color dmd, Marco or build your own.

    Ensuring you have the right voltage at the right pins is what matters.

    Getting the cable from colordmd is probably all you need for peace of mind to make the swap. Once in flash in the new software and enjoy.

    I was wrong I thought you meant stern DMD to Williams not color DMD in either machine - then color dmd has a cable for you.
