    I found a link on the internet where Herg from Pinside started a project to color the DMD from Americas Most Haunted Pinball.

    http://ledocd.com/amh_color/

    I contacted him on pinside and he said that someone had started a color in the VP community and he used that inspiration to start a full color of all the gifs.  As he stated on his webpage, he lost interest but almost 85-90% i would say is done.  He gladly shared his work for our community.  I take no credit in coloring these, just spending 2 days sorting through them because freneticamnesic didnt use all of the gifs when he built the table and a couple were slightly different.

    I haven't played this table much till now but i would love to see someone take this table and give it an update.  I noticed small things like it needs a prim playfield and some of the sound fx aren't working for switches, etc.  I would take it on but i have 2 tables in build now and i am not familiar with ultra dmd tables.

    I can not get my DMD to change to anything but green.  I know I must have done something to get it to green.  But my memory isn’t what it used to be.  Anyone have any ideas??  I checked the script and it was set to “red”.  So that wasn’t it. My ultra DMD is set to full color. So that’s not it. I am using Flexdmd. I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.  I am at a loss.  I know its a long shot, but if anyone can steer me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

    Are you using the UltraDMD script or the FlexDMD script ?

    Did you just answer my question with a question?? You know your shit when you can do that…..

    I think I did put the flex DMD script on the table.  So if I re-download the table, it should fix it.  Correct??

    Thank you Outhere. That worked. I knew I did something to it. Again you save me alot of time.  You are the man!!!

    @deathincclan

    That may or may not solve your problem
    If you only put The VBS file in a table folder take it out
    If you’re still not sure, Search to table script to make sure flexDMD is not in their

    I am super anal about my table directories.  So I loaded the script and then saved it to the table.  Then deleted the .vbs file.  But, I just re downloaded the table and deleted the old one and it works perfect now.  I knew I did something.  Thank you for your help.  I appreciate it.

    SOLVED – – I added some lines to the script and that fixed the issue.  Details in a post below.

    Sorry for the following Newbie question.  I just don’t quite understand how UltraDMD works with Flexi. . .

    I finally got this color DMD to work but it’s not 100% of the time.  For me this UltraDMD is only in full color after I run the Wizard of Oz table; which also has an UltraDMD folder.

    This DMD will only be shades of blue for me if I run it after the ChampionsLeague table, which also has an UltraDMD folder.  Note that I’ve never gotten the ChampionsLeague table to show color in the DMD so I’m kind of using it as a test to go back and forth between these two situations.

    I’m guessing I haven’t set a flag or something in the AMH script since I know the WOZ table has an option at the top of the script to turn on UltraDMD.

    Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong?  Here’s some screen grabs of the scripts from both tables:

    Wizard of Oz screen grabs:

    WOZ UltraDMD 01

    WOZ UltraDMD 02

    WOZ UltraDMD 03

    America’s Most Haunted screen grabs:

    America'sMost UltraDMD 01

    America'sMost UltraDMD 02

    If I can get this sorted out, I’ll then try to figure out Champions League.  And then I’ll test my other tables with UltraDMD.

    TIA

    @elvinu — Lots of info

    https://vpinball.com/forums/topic/cant-create-object-ultradmd-dmdobject-windows-10/?view=all#post-194336

     

    Hey Outthere,

    Thanks for the link.  I did see that link a day before but there were so many steps, I was hesitant to go thru them in fear of messing up my setup.  ;p

    At any rate, here’s what I did to finally fix the issue.  Goto the bottom if you don’t want to read everything. . .

    I grabbed the UltraDMD executable from the gameex site and installed it over my existing UltraDMD folder.

    I then grabbed Freezy’s dmdext-v1.8.0-x86 and installed the files into VPinMame (over my old ones).

    I then grabbed FlexDMD v1.5.0. I copied the 4 files over into my VPinMame folder.  I saw the amh*.vbs file in the Advanced> folder so I copied that to my tables folder and made sure the filename matched my AMH*.vpx filename.

    I then ran amh*.vpx (not from Popper) and now the DMD color is still grey scale but Bluish-Green rather than Bluish-White.  I looked at the vbs file in notepad and saw that it was set to fullcolor so I’m not sure what’s going on:
    UseFullColor = “True” ‘ “True” / “False”

    I then ran the FlexDMDUI.exe executable. It looks like this:

    FlexDMD Exe
    I then ran AMH*.vpx again (not from Popper) and the DMD color remained Bluish-Green.

    I then ran WOZ, whole DMD was still in color (wheww).  I quit out of that and ran AMH*.vpx and the DMD was still in bluish-green (because of that vbs file).  I then removed that AMH*.vbs file from my tables folder.  I reran WOZ and then ran AMH and now my AMH DMD was in full color again.

    I then ran Champions League whose DMD is in grey scale. I quit out of that and reloaded AMH*.vpx and the DMD is back to grey scale Bluish-White.

    So basically, I’m back to where I was; however, all of those programs have been updated to newer versions so I’m in a cleaner place right now I think. I did find that like WOZ, my Metal Slug table will also make AMH’s DMD full color if I run AMH right after Metal Slug.

    I then examined the AMH*.vbs file (which when placed in the table folder, will override everything) and compared it to the Metal Slug script and the existing AMH*.vpx script.

    The two former items have a section of code that’s missing in the AMH*.vpx script.  This section:

    metal slug

    I then added those lines to the to the AMH*.vpx script here:

    AMH script change

    That fixed it!  I don’t need that AMH*.vbs file which only made things bluish-green anyways.  AND if I run AMH after Champions League, the DMD will be in color!

    Now I just have to figure out what’s going on with Champions League.  When I look at the many gif files, they are all in color.

    BTW, I posted a question for you regarding Champions League’s dmd not being in color in VPForums where I saw you were working on the same thing.

    Thanks again Outhere!!!

    I still don’t understand the flex dmd.  My ultra dmd is running fine so I see no reason to change, unless it’s an upgrade but seems confusing

    I’m a U.S. citizen, and I prefer FlexDMD over UltraDMD. It seems faster and snappier and No Startup Animation. And it just worked with Freezy, where UltraDMD was a fight to get to work with Freezy on at least one computer I tried it on, and never worked consistently.
