Was juuuust thinking on smb pin2dmd!

I be willing to share all these files to see all the smb pinballs shine in a new ligth,
but please be patient. Such a Seence took around 10-15 or more workhours to make. ( did not count it but its a lot of work)
Mabe there is a faster way but I did not work long with this Programm. I'm oppen for inputs ^^

#57 51 days ago
Quoted from Lucxor:

If I would had one I would absolute be the person. But I searched. Sadly here you don't get it. I saw that someone was willing to sell one but the price was 8000 and it was about a year ago.
So wish you luck. Hope someone is wiling to help you.
or maybe you can try by your self?

I'm not the person to do it...but maybe someone on this thread will step up.

I just wanted to stop by and say that lucxor has been doing some incredible work so far with his castle destroyed scenes, and they look amazing on a pin2dmd display in person. Both him and scottyc deserve a huge thank-you for breathing new life into this pin for us. When it comes to color displays, Gottlieb games are often forgotten, so we are very lucky to not only have color display files created, but new animations added as well. Cheers to both of you guys!

so if the mushroom world has also 7 Castles you could just adapt the scenes for this one.
also all other animation if they were similar.

No castles, the only overlap in animation is mario at the end when your game is over.

#67 48 days ago

Wow, great job! I was recently looking through ScottyC's project for this since I wanted to learn how to update / create some colorizations.

I was playing around with the Gottlieb logo a couple days ago.

Hey Warhead

If you like I could use some help in the colorization of the pin. 2 people are faster than one

#70 47 days ago

Here is the link for the test files.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9i0finxf1l8pzav/AADCQECJYaM-YiAueH_EqKDga?dl=0

And of course if you like it you can also let me know

#71 47 days ago

Could you please also create the vpin export ?

So should be updated with the vpin files. let me know if it works.

#74 46 days ago

Seems to work okay. Awesome new castle scenes trigger, but do not run till the end.. Looks like there were some pallette changes, that affected a lot of stuff (attract, player 1 and 2, video mode..etc). Keep up the good work and get it fully running on a real pin and ill tackle the vpin side

Hey scotty

Thank you for the feedback. so the animation runs full on my real pin. I'm not in to vpin so appreciate your help on this site.
Yes had seems that my pallets were not hig enough and overwritten some of yours. Have to change this. Video mode was green always so don't know what it was ment to be.
Work on the yoshi at the moment. After that I will work on the video mode.

Best regards

I'd be happy to help, but I'm really new at this too. I'm going to try to get my SMB setup this week and I'll be trying the files on my SMB's Pin2DMD and the Pin2DMD on my desktop. I can test in vpin (that's what I've been primarily doing anyhow)

#77 45 days ago

Hi,
What a job!
I tested on my pin2dmd (vpin) and I only have animations in cyan and white, no shimmering colors. Same in attract mode or while playing.
Is it a palette problem? Anyone have an idea?
Thanks

Be sure you are using freezy 1.7.x... 1.8 has some issues.

#79 45 days ago

good point, you were right
ok with 1.7.1

Am I able to add this to my SMB? If so, what would I need to get for this to work. Thanks for all your hard work.

yes you are.
You need a Pin2dmd wich is activatet(activation key) and some tecnical knowledge how to install it. Or someone who can help you.
After that you just had to copy the files from the droppox to your SD Card and done.

I first ordered my pin2dmd on a German website, wich is scamming people so do not buy from them if you don't want to lose your money.
after that I was able to buy one from this guy
https://pin-display.ch/
Maybe you could buy one from someone wich do not need his pin2dmd any more.

Am I able to buy a Colordmd from ColorDmd.com or do those not have the proper activation key as you mentioned.

#83 42 days ago

It's not a ColorDMD, but rather Pin2DMD which is separate hardware. At this time ColorDMD does not support this game. Pin2DMD is more of a DIY type experience...

Thank you. I see that TinyBlackDog has some for sale in the pinside classifieds. I may be buying from there then.

Pin2dmd, pin2dmd.com. Not colordmd, those don't work on gottliebs as far as I know.

I don't know of any US retail websites but some individuals sell them. Here is one of the evo boards for sale.

hi guys,

before taking a question i want to thank you for the excellent hard work of the authors. everyone involved is incredible.

my question is that i added this colorization to my vpin and put freeze 1.7.1.

I have some colorful scenes, but most of it is just white and some Gifs scenes that I see in this topic are in single color.

I added some images to know if the colorization is correct.

please let me know what you think of this or something is wrong.

cheers

Thank you for trying out and share your experience. Apriciate that.

So this could really be. I'm not into Vpin so I can not tell what is displayed.
I only implemented the castles in ScottyC's work.

I know there are problems but I do not investigate in that, because I will do a clean implement when I am finish. It would be timeconsuming to make a clean implementation everytime I finished a new coloring of a scene and I want to keep it at a minimum.

So this project needs a loot more work and this will take time.
I work on this but I can't tell you when I will be finished(maybe in a year).

I want to give you acsess to the new sceense so you can enjoy them but this is a work in progress file

If you got problem with the castles let me know.
Everything else, will be taken care in the future.

Regards Luc

hi guys,

will this also work with a very early SMB..? because lucky1 mentioned there may be problems with the early machines? just thinking of getting a Pin2DMD for my SMB (acc. serial no. one of the first) and not sure if it will work proper..? will the problem be solved with newer versions of the game ROM?

btw. full respect for the great work of scottyc and lucxor

There should be no difference from the hardware side between a early and a later machine except the ROM version which can be updated.

Thank you.. so question to lucxor or scottyc : What ROM Version GPROM and DSPROM have you applied and is it working proper with that?

Thanks and regards!

#93 3 days ago

In all honesty I do not know what version . Only way to tell is going by the checksum info and I do not have a video/pic of that in my archive from when I owned this machine

i can check for you what version i have but do not know where to look.(try to look in the system settings in the evening)
the files are still work in progress so i think the most parts should work as expected. but still could bee that parts are not shown as expected.

So i Istalled the old DMD so i could get the info in the startup (see Picture). i do not know wich version it is but i believe its V1.
