ACDC color display
« on: July 31, 2015, 11:31:08 PM »
I knocked up a color display using Oliver's SmartDMD and Pinball Browser programs. I used an old (not too old) LCD panel and an RPI I had lying around. PMD generously provided me his image macros for LE which just needed a few shifts to work on the Pro. I upscaled 'em 16X and got rid of dots.

The camera on my tablet has not picked up the reds but made them orange. Looks much better IRL.

So, for the $25 bucks US for a licence from Oliver, I've got color on Acca and loving it. (it's also hooked up to PA speakers so it sounds cool too - and no I haven't changed any of the songs, just enabled some of the hidden Steve Richie swearing calls %.% )

Great solution if you are a tinkerer as you can customize a lot of the game in terms of display/sounds etc. Not one for the plug-and-players.

The vids are upping atm so the link will work shortly.

You just need to copy the full URL, click the youtube icon, and past the link - *but* remove the "s" from "https" leaving it as "http only - the s wrecks it.

Any way, links fixed and great work!
