I love the color DMD in my Metallica.
Which game should I put one in next?
Yes, MBR is not really color DMD, but the option to add color is available.
Please don't say ALL, because DUH, of course!
Thanks for your input!
Fair warning, if you do buy an LCD version. The dot matrix versions black areas show through as grey pixels in broad daylight and there's currently no glare eliminator mod to put into it either. I wasted money on a filter from Comet Pinball. You cannot install direct to the DMD and if you install it to the back of the speaker panel then viewing at an angle you'll see double images (So basically anything above or below direct line of site) which makes it worthless. They were cool and refunded my money.
Three way tie in the poll so far.........
Thanks for the opinions, and please keep 'em coming.
Modern Stern pins benefit the most from colordmd. The red dmds look so horrible. Classic pins have fewer animations and generally less detailed. They do look better with color but some more than others. I had a colordmd in my Shadow and didn't think it added much. Moved it to WH2O and much better. Nice thing about colordmd is you can move it to any game. You don't have to pick one game and keep it there.
If you order a Shadow or DH, the WPC power adapter that comes with it makes it easy to swap between these two with a color ROM update. If you get either Godzilla, Stern ST, SM or Mustang, the Stern Power adapter comes with the display, then it will be easy to swap between these since they use the same power kit and an easy color ROM update to make the swap.
So only 2 decisions is whether to buy one for a Stern game or WPC game and whether you buy an extra Stern or WPC power adapter kit to go between the manufacturer games.
I just ordered the color chip for MBR.
The high res color image on the display during boot up convinced me.
I am thinking probably Spidernan next after that...............
Thanks for your thoughts!
