I don't want to sound negative but yeah the head is just way too tall (for my tastes!). Having the DMD close to regular size shouldn't require that large of an LCD. I also don't like that extra info box above the DMD. Not throwing shade, you always do good work and this is no exception. I sent Haruman gingerballs a few weeks ago and I miss it bunches, I cope by going downstairs and playing my real T2 pin
Widescreen/stretched backglasses don't bother me.
I do got a few questions, if you don't mind.
List says DIY Pin2DMD but it looks like your running an LCD, is it an LCD or a DMD?
What are you using for DOF? I used a Sainsmart but I'm wondering what others went with, and if it wasn't a sainsmart how easy/hard was the set up?
Was the digital plunger worth it? I was considering one but gingerballs already broke the budget and I was running out of room inside the body. I just have concerns about calibration and how it works between tables. Is that a launch ball button under the plunger too? If so I'm assuming its for "trigger" games like T2 and STTNG.
No worries bro, i didn't built it to get everyone's approval either......I just built it.
I knew it would be a fathead but i had a vision of what i wanted in it, not for aesthetic purposes but for how can i implement this into the build and execute it.
I used automotive solenoids, addressable leds, halo rings for strobes and rgb flashers, gear motor and shaker.
I did use the 16 port sainsmart relay board, pretty easy to setup no different than the 8 port really
Yes digital plunger is cool it works well and the nudge feature is cool too.
Its a real full colordmd, Pin2dmd diy using 2 led matrix grids attached sideby side.....very cool highly recommended.
Yes, that was suppose to be a fire, but i didnt think to just map that to launch ball, its a wasted button basically. The plunger encoder doesnt include that button, i might add a low budget keyboard encoder to split them out if i find it impedes play.
The 3rd screen is not an infor screen, its provides video clips during future pinball play and plays killer videos for each table during table selection, i've gotten alot of TOO COOL compliments on that part.
I know i could taken some things out man, but you know my response to that bro........BOOOOOOOORRINNNNNGGGGG, why build if all your gonna do is replicate standard, might as well just buy, you build to give yourself autonomy to innovate.
Let me know if wanna know anything else
