Great project!! Can this be used (with a WPC89 dmd board) to replace a WPC95 AV board like you can do with a pinsound board?

Quoted from steve45:

Just a quick heads-up: I'm currently out of amplifiers and china supply chain has actually some problems (see https://www.reddit.com/r/Aliexpress/comments/bcu7xb/oops_this_item_is_unavailable/ ). In the meantime I managed to order some, but expect some delay in shipping. Sorry for that.

Please check wether all pins are properly connected and software is configured for DataEast.
Please also try to upload the logfile.

this is what leads me to believe that i need mapping, but steve says no, with new version

It runs with the newer WPC machines but it does not replace the av board. The av board is still needed for the video (DMD) part.
But it replaces audio generation.

Yes, i think that's why with the pinsound it is needed a wpc89 video board too to successfully replace the AV board!

Maybe there is a way to use it with ŕaspisound too!

I never tried it but it should basically the same. The boards share the same data bus and are chained together one after the other.
This setup should work with the TILT! Audio board as well.

I don´t see any commands coming from the machine in the logfile. Maybe steve45 can have a look

A friend of mine did a quick test with a blue 2.5 TILT!Audio board on a data east StarWars. Works like a charm:

(thx Ralf for providing the video)

Looks like a Altsound Soundset, this is buggy in RC9 as far as I know....

#762 20 days ago

There's a 1.25rc10 already that fixes that bug: https://mega.nz/#!h5hkHQxb!dU1MY5vyHfgk_S-j0A4ZQyWFYkr3yXiTwFtqsVgUjrA

This is obviously an alternate sound package but there are a few sounds that are left over from the original sound package that are playing at the wrong time. For example, “Death Star approaching” doesn’t play when the ball is ejected into the shooter lane. It plays when the Death Star target is hit with the required amount of time. I would like to see a video of the original sound package and compare to the real sound board.

Received my new kit today! Thanks Steve!

Remember to read the assembly revision for that version, as there is still a couple of small errors: https://tiltaudio.com/2019/04/18/assembly-instructions-for-2-5c-green/

Thanks for the reminder

Does anybody have a picture of a completed 2.5c board?

The easyeda site doesn’t appear to have the 2.5x schematics on there any more and I’d like to verify the placement for the thread resistors, left .156 header connectors and the single tantalum cap.

You find it here: https://easyeda.com/steve45/raspisnd-i2s. The tantalum cap should be included but is only needed for DataEast pot volume control replacement.

Perfect! Thanks again man, I appreciate it. I'm going to wrap this up tonight and see if I can get it up and running.

Quick update: new board revision arrived AKA "the red board" -> finally fixed all flaws of its predecessors.

Also note the nice little sticker that is included in each kit. Today all pieces are in stock! So go ahead and order your kit today: https://go-dmd.de/produkt/tiltaudio-kit-mit-neuem-2-5-board/

Thx & have a nice weekend Steve

I ordered 2.5d boards on my own a few weeks ago and they look great. Still waiting for all my components to show up from China though I have everything except the amps now I think. As soon as I get them, 3 machines will be getting new boards, and Ill probably build one up for a buddy since minimum order was 5 pcbs. Cant wait to try them out!

I’d take one of those bare boards if you end up with a spare.

Hi all, does anybody have a good working soundset for data East star wars, that they can share with me.thanks

#773 12 days ago

The new version 1.25 is out!! You can find update files and brand new images here:

Update file for 1.25 https://mega.nz/#!hh4EwKZa!y0zpyWfsMRV8Kr1p3touUfR9FXKJVoEEdTddDSQoF_s

Small Image:https://mega.nz/#!w9RlVa5Q!3kkSyMIoBbqQNsGQXv6x9hXZ-ZZsQIhS3K_MRZqIWiU to be used with 4GB sd card + usb stick for sound
Big Image: https://mega.nz/#!h85jGSSL!aQU2r7r7SLUHxQl_G453G-JKBSQEq6V6DmnvAQqky3I to be used with 16GB sd card for firmware and sound

So whats new:

Better and easy Wifi Setup. The board creates its own hotspot, if wifi was not setup, so you can easily connect and configure everything.

TILT_Audio-wifi-setup (resized).jpg

10 band equalizer
--------------------

For the main audio devices there is now an additional device, that integrates an equalizer into the output stream:
TILT_Audio-equal (resized).jpg

So you can easily adjust and fine tune the sound output by using equalizer controls.

Find a full and more detailed description for the new 1.25 here https://tiltaudio.com/2019/05/11/whats-new-with-firmware-1-25/

NOTE: the two main features (wifi setup / equalizer) will only work if, you install the new image. Only update zip is not enough in this case.

I read back through the posts but can’t find the information I was looking for.
With the new firmware I thought I read that the mapping file is no longer needed. Is this correct? Also, where are the sounds downloaded from. Are we still getting the packages from Pinsound? I thought this was one of the problems they had with this project.
I also want to confirm that the new firmware will work with version 2 boards?

There's a lot of sound packages available online. TILT!Audio support 4 different formats until now and I guess there's nobody out there ended up with having built a kit but no sound.

Yes the new firmware will also work with version 2.x shields.

No idea about the Frenchman, I push my project forward and there was a lot of progress and new features.

#776 12 days ago

Can you be more specific on sound package locations on the internet? I have searched and found not VP sound sets on VPForums or VPuniverse.

Did you ask for a specific soundset there ? Due to the usage of copyrighted material in the soundsets like original soundtracks of the movie they are not in the download section.

#778 11 days ago

I have a build kit that plays sounds at the wrong time. So it's like I have one with no sounds. It doesn't play a couple of wrong songs, it plays pretty much all wrong sounds

If you're looking for help you're going to need to post some information about the game. Details like -
Which game?
Which board revision?
Where did you get the sound files?
How is your USB drive folders structured

Sounds like you have a scrambled sound set

#780 11 days ago

Data East star wars sound set from Steve, unscrambled
2.5 shield
Sd card
All sounds work, just triggered at wrong time

#781 11 days ago

As some of you hesitate to build the board, just because it has also some SMD components on it, I did a quick video that shows how easy it is to solder them. No cut, just live recorded, 5 min.

Br Steve

#782 10 days ago

maybe I'll buy a pre-made one. I fuct the first board and the 2nd one I sent off to get finished hasnt gotten back to me yet....if ever.

Quoted from Vimtoman:

Anyone manage to get the java conversion program working.
Does run but does not produce anything in the config file?

I've tried it on a few different soundsets and I get the same results:

#784 8 days ago

The converter can only run with the matching config file included in the soundset folder.

Looks like this is missing. There was a post on flippermarkt, mentioning some site with altsound packages. May be there is something included you're looking for ...

There was a config file in the sound set from a certain vendor. What exactly is conversion utility looking for? If you want to take it to PM, that works too
