    Folks,

    On the heels of Menace's post for large format panels, I wanted to offer up replacement standard size colour LED DMD panels (PIN2DMD versions) for sale. I've already ordered/built 5 of these panels and sold off a few. I'm about to order an additional 10 of these and I'm trying to gauge interest. Selling price is $250. If you look at online retailers or Player 1 for replacement panels you are looking at upwards of $350 in most cases for monochrome displays.

    These panels have come out of the virtual pinball scene but can also be used for replacing DMDs in real machines. They provide the option of full colour along with 8 different monochrome settings. They will work in just about any make of machine. There is an active group of individuals that are colourizing certain games and for a small donation, or in some cases for free, they will provide you with the necessary files that can be loaded onto the board via an SD Card and give you full colour (similar to what ColorDMD sells for twice the price!).

    Here is a link to photos and videos of the displays in action.

    If you would like additional information or have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to me.

    Thanks,

    Dino Z.

    I purchased one of these displays from Dino and will be trying some of these color files out in some of my real pins. This is a nice and much cheaper alternative to ColorDMD at almost 1/3 of the cost!

    If you own any of these real pins you can load these FREE full color files on an SD card

    There are other games that have full color files available but you have to contact the author privately for the files and might require a donation. I am planning to reach out to NetzZWerg for MM, TOM and TAF.

    Rotate them through in what fashion? To get the colourization to work on a real game, you have to install a couple of files on the SD card that are specific to the machine. For a vpin the process is a bit different.

    The board itself has mounting holes that line up with original DMDs so that is straight forward. There is a flat ribbon cable that needs to be plugged into the board. You then need to get power to the board in 1 of 2 ways. If you crank the brightness on these displays they draw a lot of current and it is recommended that you power them with a small external power supply. The other option is to take power off one of the boards in the backbox. Depending on the game, I can build you a jumper harness to plug into both ends.

    I have my display running at 20% brightness and it is more than enough so power from the backbox is not an issue. This is what ColorDMD does as well.

    For games that are colourized, you need to copy a couple of files onto an SD card and insert it into the back of the board. For non-colourized games, there are a couple of buttons on the back of the board that will put it into diagnostics mode and allow you to change the settings to either monochrome or colour mode. I believe there may be a way to load additional palettes as well but I haven't quite gotten that far. You can see from the videos that I posted of Judge Dredd some of the options you have for a non-colourized game.

    Once Mike gets around to testing, I'm sure he will post his results.

    I think you should start a list of pre-orders for your next batch. I might be down for 5-6 :D
