  1. Hey Blur, Have you considered using something like github for the hosting and distribution of your project? It makes it quite easy for other people to fork your project, make adjustments / fixes and then let you know of these changes for you to decide to pull back in or not. It also adds in version'ing and tagging of each release. Another thing that would be helpful is if there is some strange bug on Windows 7 that creeps in after a release, git will easily show the difference between releases making tracking down that bug by you or others easier. If you have not used git before, I'd be willing to help you get up to speed, the basics can be learned quickly and github provides a lot of the heavy lifting. Thanks for your work on this!
  2. Hi Pixel, How will the software work for your boards? Will it be the same/similar to how the LED Whiz works with the config files? I'm probably a month out from needing an LED control board, do you think your setup will be in beta by then or is it still further out? I'm really just looking for the same functionality as the LED whiz right now and could then look at expansion later once the ideas start flowing for what is capable with your board Keep up the good work!
  3. 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)
  4. Thanks for the catch on this, heard back from the seller and they indicated that it cannot work with 0 volt input.
  5. Will you be using contactors only for the flippers and the pull solenoids for all others?
  6. That'd be awesome if that works out, then I would only need a smaller relay board for some of the other toys.
  7. mameman, do you think an animated sequence can be made in etched acrylic? What I'm thinking is sort of stop motion, in acrylic with the led's changing behind it to make it appear there is movement.
  8. Ok, so low/false (0) logic is what we are looking for. Thank you.
  9. What part of the spec indicates 0 volt input? This was the board I was looking at. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-16-Channel-12V-Relay-Module-Interface-Board-Arduino-PIC-ARM-DSP-PLC-/170745300786?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27c1368732#ht_4032wt_952 Thanks.
  10. Thanks for the info. I was considering trying one of the relay boards that is on ebay. They have one that is 16 ports for $30 which would be enough to drive 8 contactors as well as the wiper and knocker if it works. I guess I could try out a single one first and see how it goes before buying the board. I'll give it a shot
  11. I don't know if it will effect VP, but typically this setting controls whether the GPU handles the upscaling of the resolution from the monitors native res. If you are using the monitors native res, then it shouldn't have an effect and the TVs we use also have a scaler in them already. Some LCD's do not have a scaler, like my 30" HP, so I would need to have the GPU do the scaling, otherwise if I ran something at 640x480 for example it would show up as a small box in the middle of the screen with large black borders.
