    I have installed a couple in stern systems, they have a spare AC konnektor on the left of the coin door which only powers on when the pin is switched on

    I than use a seperate AC power supply to run the raspberry and lcd display

    Yes you can use the dmdextender in place of the official smartdmd board

    I think you just need smartdmd software. If you need the Potc macro you can PM me. And than you have full color thanks to the excellent work of Sironzelot

    Thats what I assumed Crash, thanks for confirming. I ordered all of the parts and will build it out completely.
    Now I need to find someone who has colorized Mustang.......

    Quoted from nwpinball:

    You can do this with any laptop lcd screen and controller board, right? I want one a little bigger for a Sega Baywatch, I've seen an 18.4" screen is recommended.

    Correct. Any screen Will work. Just try to get one which has good black levels
