Quoted from potf77:
I am trying to get a DIY PIN2DMD to work correctly in a DATAEAST Star Wars. I used a version 2.0 shield from back in 2016. The firmware is 2.86 and the ST STM discovery board had been registered back in 2016.
When the PIN2DMD is powered on it displays the a VGA color palette along with colorprism version 2.68 and then switches over to display DATA EAST. When the pin2dmd starts receiving data from the display driver board from the pinball machine the scenes are shown on the dmd display but they are using the, what I assume, default palette. The colors never change through the game. Always white/blue/brown. Ben Kenobi is blue at the end of the screen,
It seems as if the Discovery board is not reading the pin2dmd.fsq and pin2dmd.pal from the SDCARD. I am sure the Discovery board is reading the SDCARD because if I change the pin2dmd.dat to WILLIAMS instead of DATA EAST the display no longer syncs properly. I cange it back to DATA EAST and copy over the pin2dmd.dat from pc to SDCARD it syncs back up and displays the proper image, not colors.
I can hook up the pin2dmd display to the usb port on my pc and control the display with the pin2dmd editor. I can change the palettes to solid colors on the fly. Then I change the configuration of the pin2dmd display to vga palettes and DATA EAST and save it through the USB.
The SDCARD contains:
pin2dmd.fsq (martdes colorization version from vpuniverse)
pin2dmd.pal (martdes colorization version from vpuniverse)
I am running game rom version 1.07 and display rom version A1.04 in the machine.
What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help? It is probably something very simple that I am overlooking but at this point I just keep banging my head..
Do you know wether your key supports colorization ? In 2016 there were users which did not want to pay 10 Euro and there was a basic key which did not support colorization. Send me a copy of the key and I can have look. What you can also check is set enhancer to off if your shield does not have a signal enhancer circuit (LS123)
