Never let it be said i don't take good advice.

Having an issue with the install on my pro.

If i put the dmd on the bottom most hole the panel fits back in fine, but the display is too high up to read. if i put it in on the hole above the display shows correctly but the panel will not reinstall as the bracket sits in a recess and the screen is wider and it won't sit down.

Do i have to tune the screen to display differently or something?

Here it's slotted down and won't fit in the machine, but displaying correctly.

pb105 (resized).jpg

Here it's sitting up further and fits in the machine fine but the display is an inch too high.
Assuming i have to change one of the settings in the menu to a different display size or something. The instructions are pretty generalized and a bit sketchy.

Yes, just install the screen where it fits. Did you get the extra set up for metal back box? You can adjust the screen up or down in the setting. When I installed mine I bought the extra mounts and foam ring for the metal back box.

Did you follow instruction? https://www.colordmd.com/Assembly%20for%20Instructions%20SAM%20Rev3.PDF

You have to tune the screen to adjust the display area.

Locate and press the right-most ColorDMD Menu button (See Fig. F)
to customize the display settings. Continue pressing the button to
advance to the "MOUNTING" menu. Next use the Toggle Selection Up
button to change the setting to "SAM".

Also TWD is a Sam system and they need special bracket "Games with metal speaker panels require an additional (not included) clear shield and hex standoffs available from our store site."

#9707 15 days ago

FUCK! the fucking store wouldn't let my paypal process for hours and i had to contact Randy, i had the standoffs and brackets in my cart the first time and fucking had to redo the cart and must have missed the fucking things the second time.

What a shit system that sells something you need separately. Like fuck! So now wait weeks again, pay stupid international freight again for something that should have been in the kit as i had to specify the fucking model i wanted. I have three of the stupid fucking things that don't fucking fit now.

This totally sucks.

Edit; I totally suck. Randy told me to have a better than blokes look and i found the shield under the packing in the box.

Totally me and a fantastic product, i worked out how to lower the display on the screen with the menu buttons. will pull it all to bit's again and install the perspex, should i just get some foam to go between the perspex and the display or not worry?

Not worry would be my vote... my TWD didn’t have the gasket and it didn’t bother me at all.

Thanks, so embarrassed about my spray against a fantastic product. It is the best mod i could have made to that machine.

Dont worry about it. I was frustrated as well. There should be something on their site that says don't forget these items... I had to wait another couple of weeks after my initial purchase to get the extra parts and gasket. Its worth it in the end.

I would get the foam gasket. It stops the light bleed from the backbox and finishes everything off very nicely.

Everything else was in the boxes but those. Is that another additional cheap part that is not automatically in the kit but you need to 'finish it off nicely'?

Yes, they are sold separately as some people like them and some do not. Now you are hooked on Color DMD and you know what to order you can get a gasket with your next order!

You can use black foam weatherstripping to block any gap.

you have any spare head decals I can buy?

#9717 15 days ago

If anyone is looking for one, I'm planning to throw this up for sale. Probably for $7500 + shipping if required. Considering what the topper sells for now, if you backed out the price of the topper and the color DMD, you're left with an LE with a bunch of other mods for under $6k.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/fs-the-walking-dead-le-w-topper-colordmd-ampamp-lots-of-mods

Pretty much the same as it was when I bought it except I restored the factory sounds. I've put around 300 games on it. If there's interest, I'll put up a proper for sale ad with new pics.

I bought three of them this time, but i only have one machine that needs one so sold the other two at cost. Worked out over $100au cheaper each with the free shipping. i won't be ordering again for a while i hope as there's no machines i need them for. I wouldn't bother doing Hurricane and i have a pin2dmd color to go in Getaway when it goes to the restorers.

I can relate...
I was cursing color dmd after buying a dmd for another game and having trouble downloading the game specific code to the DMD "WHY THE F DON'T THEY JUST DOWNLOAD THE CODE BEFORE THEY SEND IT TO YOU????!!!!#@#@# .

An hour later of usbing and rewatching the you tube install video 4 or 5 times I got it to work and the world was right again.

#9720 14 days ago

Yeah i had a few problems, including that for some reason my computer won't let me adjust the speaker volume all of a sudden for some reason, so had to really muddle through even though the kind people here were posting links to youtube to help me, i couldn't hear the instructions. It does seem crazy that parts you need are listed seperately, i saw the standoffs and ordered those but have yet so see the seal. Dunno why anyone would NOT want that.

BUT, great product all the same. $700au odd well spent.

Love it, same here bought three spent over a grand, but all i could think of was the $100 i saved by doing so.

#9723 12 days ago

I’m about to update the game code and I am wondering if the Total Plays will zero out or will the Version 1.60 code carry the previous number forward?

It will return to zero.

This is why looking at played games is more or less useless. It doesn’t mean anything in the end, condition is King.

Thanks. Should I use the Stern 1.60 or a different one?

Edit...I loaded up the 1.60 Cleland version mentioned in the post below. Thanks Rensh

Quoted from EEE:

I prefer the Cleland version with real voices from the series. If you are a walking dead fan this is a must.

But you can try out stern version to see how you like it.

#9727 10 days ago

Folks,
just changed the code on an TWD LE that had Cleland on it and now I've lost all sound - anyone got any idea? Tried downloading the code again and refreshing and still nothing. Putting Cleland back on to see if that makes any difference.

anything else I should be looking at?

#9728 10 days ago

also what's the part number for this plastic part above the ramp?

Our slightly modded TWD Pro machine is set up in in a room where the overhead lights are usually kept off to prevent glare. At certain times it seems that all of the playfield GI lights go out and the ball(s) disappears. I’m not sure if this is made more intense by the lighting choices that the previous owner made. There are three different flashers under the apron and super bright ones in the backboard of the playfield.

What suggestions do you have to improve ball visibility? Add-on lighting strips or perhaps different color GI and inserts rather than the white led’s that are currently installed?
Pic taken during shop out

#9736 8 days ago

flashers in the apron and backboard? maybe post a pic of what is there

the only time I can recall the gi is off is during crossbow mode. and it is a cool effect but yes on the dark side if playing in a dark room , you could put an led strip in the trough or wherever else you would like to illuminate wired to a non gi source like the coin door to give some constant lighting

#9737 8 days ago

Here are a few pics of the three 6 SMD lighting pad leds under the apron and the faceted bulbs in the backboard.

I love when this happens - makes the game very challenging at times, and adds to its awesomeness. I wouldn't change a thing...

#9739 7 days ago

I see you have a translucent apron so the light pads under the apron make sense , I would probably hook them up to a source so they give a nice glow to the apron all the time but I guess hooked to a flasher could be cool too.

easy enough to try some different bulbs in the backboard. I would think if they are super bright when they go off it will seem even darker until your eyes adjust.

Are there really people that don't like the foam gasket installed? I know that some people don't have it, but I can't imagine that is because they don't want it in there. I mean....one way looks like it should look and the other way looks like something is missing or messed up. I can see cost, not knowing, not wanting to add it after the install is done or indifference being a factor, but I really can't imagine anyone being opposed to it being in there.

Yep, we have shown a few people and they have said that they do not want the foam gasket touching the LCD screen as it could cause long term damage. Each to their own, I think this gasket is a must have and thanks to vireland for making it happen. Our LCDS work fine and we have them in 2 games with metal backboxes.

Quoted from pinballaddicted:

That's worry for nothing. What, are they planning on using the panel in a laptop sometime in the future? It's not garden variety weatherstripping or cheap chinese open cell foam where that *might* maybe possibly be a concern. The foam I use for the colorDMD gaskets is an expensive flame-resistant hybrid like wetsuit material. I recently took off the Game of Thrones gasket I used for initial testing of these years ago. LCD panel was perfect. Gasket had small pressure indentations from the holes and ridges on the sides of the panel but that's it - nothing on the panel.

I do think it's weird the ColorDMD site doesn't have a suggested add-ons bit that offers the standoff kit and the gasket before you check out. Maybe it's a limitation of their site.

#9744 6 days ago

Couple of dollars worth of parts on a 100's of dollars worth of kit? Throw them in and if people don't want to fit them they can choose not to.

Although i spose i'm guilty of it with my own products in places.

When I bought my TWD it had the ColorDMD already installed without a gasket, I did not miss it, therefor did not add it. I would not remove it if it came with a game I bought. If I were buying a a ColorDMD today for a machine that could use one I would not add it.

I do think it would be a great "value add" for ColorDMD to include them... but they seem pleased with their margins and I don't suspect we will ever see that happen.

lol a better than blokes look

I used some black insulation tape to block out any light bleed on an older game that had LCD

but now I use the LED version, fits better and looks better.

I like the fit of the LED screens, but I can't do them. The brightness always seems to be not quite enough or too much, I can't get the brightness just right with them, so I prefer the LCD screens, fit-challenged though they may be.

Yeah i put mine in scan to start and never bothered even looking at what the others were like. love it.
