Thanks, yes I saw that thread. If you read the comments a few months on, they say that the animations are affected and only work some of the time. Its a real shame, as that would be perfect.
As per usual, Gottliebs are the ugly sisters that get locked in the attic........
Just checking back on the above PinballSP thread... he definitely says Gottlieb support...
“... Product is full compatible with all real pinball Bally/williams, Data East, Stern WhiteStar, Stern SAM and Virtual pinball (pinmame, future, etc...). And with version V2 of firmware, also support Gottlieb and Stern Spike (this firmware version require key activation, but only need pay 10 euros to firmware developer to activate it, then work forever with free updates)... “
Have u messaged @pinballsp ?
Not many end up selling a colordmd - they either sell it in the machine or keep it for the next game.
But these days - a real plasma DMD is £200+
I would glady pay £275 for a used one. Are they any cheaper in the USA???
And slightly more if you’ve got a newer Stern metal backbox with red display shield that needs swapping out. They are definitely not cheap, but once bought tend to hang around - like PDI glass.Is £370 the going rate for ColorDMD LCD then? Seems to only be one UK supplier.
Is there any value in a stock Stern DMD? What do people do with them afterwards?
Dont forget you can re-flash any of the colordmd.com products to another machine.... It is just done with a memory stick!
The colordmd/plasma dmd is a long standing debate. Not all pinball players like these displays. It is personal choice.
I see people listing games (like chrisb) with two prices. One with and one without a colour display.
Personally I used to hate them, then I saw them upscale and was then blown away......
When you "upscale" - what do you mean by this? Is this a standard setting?
