    Real DMD's In Pinball Cabs

    Just came across this thread (only got a real DMD recently). If anyone is playing Pinball FX2 or The Pinball Arcade, you probably want this. It's a small tool I wrote that adds real DMD support to PBFX and TPA. It's free and open source and it supports pretty much every display out there. However if you have one that you like to add support to, let me know! Thread about Pinball FX2 at VPF Thread about the Pinball Arcade at VPF Cheers!
  2. Little upgrade. PinDMD3 FTW! Luminosity at 10%. More will probably hurt my eyes. Backbox monitor is the same but rotated back to landscape. I also got Pinball FX2 and TPA running with it (the third shot is actually TPA), thanks to a little tool I wrote:

    Good. You can comment on the release upload form here if you want.
  4. Unfortunately, I've never gotten it to work. Ended up buying a new one.

    Well the other stuff is going to be a hosted service, so it's not intended for running on a cab. You're welcome to check it out though, but it's still under heavy development.

    It's a Node.js thing and there might have been some progress meanwhile. Didn't try to install from scratch since a while now, been busy with other stuff.
  7. Haha I had about the same relation to this before I started working on the cab. Yes, I've used the same wire for all connections (12V/24V). The 24V PSU I needed for the knockers and the solenoids (knockers are actually 50V, but 24V already knocks pretty well). The reason I've used a separate 12V power supply instead of the PC's PSU was mainly because I wanted to keep the PC's circuit separate from the rest. Check out maxxsinner's excellent electrical guide, it's all pretty well explained in there.
  8. Thanks and of course, go ahead with the plans! Will check, I think I have a vid somewhere. Cheers!
  9. New VPinball DX9 test hard-booted the PC due to lack of power, so I had to put in a stronger PSU. At 750W (instead of the old 400W), no more crashes!

    Sorry, forgot about this. Are you running node 0.8.x or 0.10.x? Seems Win7 needs older 0.8.x. Otherwise I unfortunately can't offer you any other tips besides what's under Troubleshooting in the installation instructions. I'm using buffertools for writing the .vpt format so I can dynamically update the table script, but the feature is not yet finished and I probably could do it without buffertools, if other people have the same problem. However, right now I'm quite busy with work and other projects, so it's not gonna happen very soon.

    Check also INSTALL.md, there are some trouble shooting tips in there.

    Sorry for responding so late, was busy the weekend and then forgot about it yesterday. Can you try npm install buffertools while being in the folder where you cloned the repository? If there's any red or errors, paste the log.

    See previous post?

    Hmm do you get that after updating? I've recently added the buffertools dependency but it should be added when running npm install during install. During the automatic upgrade that should be ran as well.

    Well it's true that it only adds the IPDB IDs when it actually has to write the XML file. You could force that by clicking twice on the HyperPin icon next to a random table in order disable/reenable it, that will dump the XML and add the IPDB IDs. On second though it might be a good idea to always write them down. Can you open a issue on GitHub for that?
