I would like to complete the "Cirqus Voltaire" table.

I've already solved some problems with Bam:
1- In BG, the cannon strikes a bell and turning a rotor
2- Three magnets on the Playfield
3- The creation of two balls of different diameter and textures.

Using only PF artifices I also solved:
1- the problem of the RingMaster's movements.
2- the "Boom Bumper" that comes out and re-enters in the PF.

Now it lacks a long and noisy thing: Extract the images of the Dmd from the ROM.

I had already used PinMame32_VC2008vcmd, modified program that creates a file.txt of the dmd images. I have the switch-matrix.
The program remains blocked in the ringmaster's search test.
Unfortunately I can not start the game.

Can someone help me start the game? I attach switch Matrix, PinMame32_VC2008 and Rom.

Greetings to all

Gianfranco

Hi Gianfranco,

You have to press the 'END' Key to "Close the Coin Door" - which allows the testing to complete... The game will then start ;)

I only found this by looking at the assigned Keys in the "Input (this game)" menu found in the MAME Settings (press the 'TAB' key, use the 'up'/'down' arrows to navigate and 'Enter' key to select.... the usual MAME setting menu (if you use MAME that is..?)...).

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Gin

All Bally tables from the 90s are pure gold to have in FP, good luck with the work.

Does the "Background image animation" work in Dot Matrix Displays?
It is necessary to have an animated background in DMD and to write on it.

I tried to do it , following the instructions of the "Futur Pinball Help Manual" but I could not do it.

In this tutorial, I used Francisco's code
There is a downloadable demo table in my tutorial

I am away from my computer but I can explain it if you have questions...

Franzleo,

I am so glad you are working on this table! The current version of the table seems to lack something the times I have played it.

I am willing to help anyway I can, like with custom physics, sound level control panel, fixing stuck balls etc.

George

thank you George for your help offer, but I solved all the problems to make the table. I realize that I will need a lot of time to solve all the problems of the DMD animations.

Thanks Bob. I have seen that "Background image animation" does not work in FP. in fact I saw that the great tablemakers use a trick to solve this lack.

Do you now understand the trick of making DMD fonts?
