WOW. That looks great. Is there any special setup or is it the same config as what everyone uses now?

I saw that thread recently. but didn't get a chance to read up on it much. What did the whole setup cost you? I know from having to buy DMD's for pins that they are not cheap.

How does this work though considering not all DMD's are the same size? Most are, but I know Sega had some larger ones and I'm sure there are other exceptions too.

The orange DMD cost me 300 for the 5 Volt, the dongle is 75 plus shipping... Worth every penny...

I'm definitely interested. What happens on those handful of games that had larger (and I believe higher res) DMD displays? Do they work at all?

I'm going to get my cab going with the existing 15.6" LCD, then I'll consider the upgrade after that. Don't want to throw another unknown variable into the mix right now.

By the time you get the DMD and the Dongle most of the bugs will be worked out. And their are only 5 games that have the higher res 128 x 64, Baywatch, Arron spelling, ect ect.. He's converting the Pinmame.DLL to re-size those DMD's to fit the 128 x 32

Pretty freaking sweet. Thanks for the video.

What are the dimensions of the viewable area of the DMD? (want to make sure if I do this later my DMD panel will work) :)

i got my hands on a dmd made by cherry..does anyone know if this would work??

only if you power it with a pinball power supply and power board, it will likely need 100,50 and -5 (or something like that)

haha, that would require 8 of those, maxxsinner. At $80 a piece get you a DMD 30.4" by 7.6" for around $640. Would go well with a 65+" playfield... :laugh:

Really, basically the same that cab-builders here have been doing for some time? I did see it is an LCD panel, but since I read that dmd's are/can be plasma-based display technique, I figured it would be like "real" dmd technology... ok, pardon the n00b interference :-)

colordmd is a lcd-screen and only for one dedicated pinball machine suitable.

If not, you (and other dutch vpinheads) may get one from here: http://flipperwinkel.nl/winkel/index1.html (then click Electronica, then Displays) Not sure if it is a good price or not though. You can pick it up from their location and not risc damage while shipping...

I don't think this is the 5v version ... but the normal plasma display which requires power supply that deliveres other type of voltages
