Also, I realize that I am using Pinball Browser, which is not really part of the PIN2DMD project, and want to thank you for helping me understand the how to make best use of the software. One thing I do want to emphasize is that I had no problems getting my PIN2DMD up and running, and displaying dots in my pin. Easy to find the parts, assemble, and get going. Once installed in my XM, it was easy to configure the PIN2DMD to have a nice blue palette, which complements the game very nicely.

Thanks ! There are marked posts in the pinball browser thread which answer most of the questions

If I need to copy something in pb I do it in the macro editor.

Something like these?!
To be honest... I'm far from complete, need a machine to test in detail and actually have really lot's of stuff to do...

BUT: I LOVE THIS GAME and as soon as I have organised some really important things and actual orders i will continue on this beast!

Ok been reading a bit on the pin2dmd and want to give it a shot. I’ve searched around but can only find the kits or complete assembled (which I prefer) displays on European sites any sellers in the US?

go to the pin2dmd forums on vpuniverse.com. There you will find what you seek!

I was curious and asked him about this, but it's wrong: see his response below.

I don't sell any hardware that's compatible with the Pin2DMD software. All the software and the board layout files for the earlier Teensy based thing I did is available on my GitHub account: https://github.com/ecurtz/RGB_DMD

Please note that it does not have the palette swapping features that Pin2DMD supports because I'm in the USA and it might violate the ColorDMD patent.

I will be happy to send on my Tee'd Off colorization project to anyone that would like to help with getting it done and uploadable.

I am having an issue with my Pin2DMD. I have my original SD card and it seems to work perfectly. I have a second SD card and the game boots fine and displays as it should for several minutes. Then, at some point during a 5 ball game, the screen flashes and states that it is not licensed. I can continue game play, but doesn't really matter since the display is frozen with Pin2DMD logo and serial number. Cycling power fixes the issue temporarily, but as I get into another game the same result occurs. All I have on both SD cards is the license file. Any ideas on why this might be occurring, or what additional information is required to diagnose?

Which firmware version ?
USB attached ?
Does the number differ from the original key?
What SD card size ?

I will have to get answers to all the questions, but I can tell you that it is not USB attached (installed in real pin with 12V power & DMD data ribbon), and the SD Card size that is failing is 8GB. I did just update the firmware before installing permanently in my pin around 2 weeks ago based upon your recommendation, but I don't remember exact version.

Maybe the problem is coming from the sector size the card is formatted with. There are some limitations in the FATFS code I use
http://elm-chan.org/fsw/ff/00index_e.html Try to format with 512byte sector size.

I will give that a try and report back.
