Folks,

My PMD LCD Mod has been out of commission since I updated to 1.7. Unfortunately, I don't have a Windows PC so I can't run PinballBrowser to patch the binary.

I'd greatly appreciate it if someone can run the patch for me with AC/DC serial # is 233854 (and allow me to download it so I can update my machine). If the download/update works, I'm happy to PayPal you $20 for your kindness...

Thanks,

snaroff

Interesting...same thing with me (this is my 2nd attempt). Is it possible the patch is specific to a version of Mike's cool mod? I was a very early adopter and whatever I have installed was likely in the first batch. I believe when Mike re-produced the mod, changes were made. PinballMikeD are all versions able to be updated? Please advise,

It has to do with Sterns code and not the LCD mod. Sterns code has to be cracked/modded to allow the serial port on the board to communicate with the LCD mod. That's how the mod knows what song/mode you are on and what vid to play. When the 170 code came out back in February a new "comm" patch had to be made by Oliver (creator of Pinball Browser). If your using an older version of PB Browser then get the upgrade with new patch.

That was supposedly the PB version that was used. I appreciate your offer to package one up for me...since you are plugged into the details, I'm hopeful yours will work (I'd do it myself buy I have no access to a Windows PC).

If your image doesn't fly for me, I'm just going to revert to the older version. For me, this mod is more important than some of the subtle/obscure code changes that were made.

Thanks,

I have one of the first also, got mine working fine after a couple tries and help from Habo. Keep at it, you'll get it

#659 1 year ago

I have one of the first batch also. I was sent code yesterday and I will try it tonight.

#660 1 year ago

Just finished installing hAbO's image and the same result...doesn't work for me. The "Pinball Mike" splash screen comes up, then a login screen, then it goes black. Since so many people are having more luck with this process, I have to imagine there are some subtle differences between versions of the mod. Will be interesting if tatman9999 is successful...

Bummer, but I appreciate the help. Thanks hAbO!

Try deleting the log files. I get the same black screen when for some reason one of the log files gets corrupted. I trouble shot that with MikeD and he sent my log files to the programmer but got no response. I just have to delete the log files every once in a while and I am good.

I removed all the log files in the "Debug" directory and still no luck. Sigh.

Thanks for the tip...bummed it didn't work!

I don’t want to hijack this thread but what would be needed in your opinion to a newer version of this mod to be top notch?

More videos, more interactivity or what’s the thing you’re wanting most?

I think there is a good way to solve it but that would need another product as well to buy.
And I need to test before releasing anything. Just tinkering a bit as an enthusiast.

You can add your own videos and pics to this mod. Be careful with copyright laws if you do sell something.

Edit: notice that this is post 666 from someone in Hell in an AC/DC thread! Noticed that after posting. Hmmm.

A friend has this Mod on a Premium. It boots up to the videos and works maybe 50% of the time.

Is deleting the log txt file from the USB a quick remedy?

Screen gets power but is black, generally. Sometimes, the Mike D screen comes up, but then goes back to black.

Powering off and powering back on helps sometimes.

Reseating the USB in the coin door helps sometimes.

Mine works 75% of the time. Deleting the log files didn't help for me. Love this mod despite it's flakiness...

I used to own that pin and it was 100% for me but I made all/most of the videos that are probably still on it. That was also 2+ years ago I think? I may have all that somewhere if making a new image/usb might help?

It’s been a while since I thought about how the mod works though.

#671 3 months ago

I had this mod on my Luci that I recently sold. Worked 100% of the time once I realized I needed to see it boot completely and start displaying its attract animations before I started a game.

#672 3 months ago

Does anybody have one that they want to sell?

#673 3 months ago

I would have issues from time to time and simply taking the USB stick to my computer and plugging it in would automatically correct errors. Try this then put back in your game. It may be a quick fix you need. However, the USB stick that came with (from memory) the mod has all the utilities to fix other things:

- Drive manager to reimage the entire Operating System on your SD card located on your Pi board
- SD Image
- Utility to resize and edit pictures
- Old version of Pinball Browser to edit songs, DMD texts

It also includes the Manual, Serial Number all videos and pictures used in the mod. For anyone that has the mod I would back this USB up somewhere on your PC or burn it to CD.

Clearing out all of the log files always fixes it for me.

#675 3 months ago

Good info in guys. I really appreciate it. I'll have him look at the USB stick and perhaps follow the procedure outline by hAbO.

Waxx, I appreciate the offer. I'll see if the first remedy works, if not. Your offer may be a good option to consider.

Thank you

Have one for three yrs now I think and it has worked flawlessly except one time when it crashed. Than the solution was a new image on the SD card which came from the USB stick.
