PIN2DMD real color DMD

Postby mpad » Sun Feb 14, 2016 12:19 pm

There has been a very nice open source project going on PIN2DMD, a full RGB DMD for virtual and real pincabs.

It displays VPINmame output, same as pinDMD1/2.
So support should be no problem for Pro Pinball, right :D ?

Pleas Please Please

This would allow the original yellow DMD color - and maybe color mods in the future...

There is also a library called LibDmd, part of DMD Extensions, that supports pretty much all available DMDs through one, clean and simple API.

Honestly, integrating this should be a matter of hours, not days. It also comes with a virtual DMD, so you don't even need the hardware to test. The author freezy is very responsive, so is PinDMD author Russell Pirie, with whom you're already in contact as far as I know.

If you want to make a big part of the cab owners very happy, have a look at this!

Yeah, there was a video posted by you where a real DMD was already running!! Is it still a long way to publish this option? I think that would be one of the last things missing.
