we abolutly need a do it yourself Color dmd
not only Change some Basic Colors
i am not really sure how it works
when i want to create a SAM color
i need the Pinballbrowser + license
with license i can edit avery frame not only in the red blue or white shades?!?
but what will then be saved?
to the rom or to the raspary(smartdmd) ?!?! or both
with the trial its a little bit unclear.
what will be happen when i color now parts in a FW and stern will update?
can i export parts from this and import in the news version
or must a begin from zero?
must i edit the rom.file when i only want to colorize?
Or will the change info be saved at the SD card?
please pm me if you have the hardware in stock ( cable + pcb + license)
When i understand it riht
Smartdmd will save all changes in a macrofile
This can not be copyright
So that could be shared and when you execute it you have the same rom
My parts are ordered
I hope,to can test on star trek next week
Quoted from Pinhunter:
Ok i have started from scratch, install pre-configured distribution onto flash drive.
All works fine, I can see smartdmd under network in w7.
I can map network drive.
I cannot copy files over to this drive. (destination folder access denied) you need permission to perform this action)
I try and change security but it does not allow, i have played with network settings no luck, I can see the workgroup is called workgroup but windows 7 wants to give me a homegroup password.
I think the problem is with w7 i will keep trying a few things.
I did check the [smartdmd] settings correct.
Thanks for your help
could you help me
i have also no write rights in w7
what have you done step by step?
i am not a Linux or Network pro
Quoted from Elwood_BE:
Could you give us more information about the screen and converter that you use and how do you screw it in the panel, ... ?
LP156WF1 TLB3 15.6" HD LED
with a china controller to hdmi
with some tape i installed a clear plexi att he backside
just drilled the 4 holes with some spacers
is it a good idea for the free memory to
import colorized pictures in a blank original firmware?
.. but i cannot delete the source Folder (if i know it no Problem)
it would be greate if you could create a function:
Import from here the next 10 Pictures
Select frome here the next 10 Pictures to Palette xx
would save hours !!!
would this be possible
or othe ways to be faster to do this 2 things
to get a prof. mounting plate is not realy possible if you Need only 1-2
i used 2 from colordmd shop
a external psu
connected to the original Stern cable 240V or 110V switched
this cable is in every SAM machine at the left front corner
Quoted from Spyderturbo007:
If I'm reading this correctly, I can do this with my Demolition Man?
1. Buy SmartDmd adaptor
2. Buy LCD Laptop Screen
3. Buy Raspberry Pi
4. Edit animations with included software
I saw something about Williams games and single color palette. What exactly does that mean?
How do you get the files from the game to the computer for editing?
Does anyone know how to mount an LCD screen in place of the DMD?
Only Stern SAM is supported
you can only select 1 color palette with i think 8 different colors (brightness of a color)
"Side-channel" i looking great
i see no difference to the old way, only that now the picture looks perfect, without the 8 dots
great job olivier
yes its pbbrowser
i hope it will work soon
i have a unit here and want to get it in GB as soon as possible
i don't think i have the time to do a complete game
but if some people split the work its possible
to bad that there is only the side-chanel option and no serial output
what do you mean
memory problem with pin2dmd
is he working on a smartdmd TFT with the side chanel cable?
or pin2dmd with the recorded frames ?!?
i had this problem with smartdmd and patching the ST LE rom also
so i think may be the pin2dmd way would be easier
if i understand it right
- no change at the roms or extra cables from cpu to the display
are there any other limitations?
- memory at the pin2dmd?
- maximum of pallets?
