RealDMD does not turn off anymore

Recommended Posts

Since I have updated to the latest version of PinballX it now keeps showing the PinballX animation on my RealDMD.

I don't card about that one way or another but the DMD used to tuen off for tables that did't use it.

Now it just freezes in the middle of the animation.

Is there a way to get back to the older behaviors of turning off the DMD display when it isn't being used?

 

Thanks

Which version did you update from and do you have the hidedmd turned on for each table in Game Manager?

I think I was on 3.37 and now I'm using 3.40.

Hide DMD is checked on all the tables.

When I turn the PC on it says PinDMD.com Rev598-16

In device manager it says pinDMD2

I think I found the issue. One more thing, please post the log file so I can see if you are running 64 or 32 bit.

Curious, why are there repeating status lines in the log file?

Beats me.

I deleted the old log file then started PinballX again and got this:

Please replace this file and let me know the results.

You said you upgraded from just a few versions ago. Are you saying it is a new issue or has it been around a while?

I have never had this issue until I did this last upgrade on Sunday.

With that new DLL it now works like it used to most of the time. Not all of the time.

But it is definitely a step in the right direction....

hmm. really not sure what has changed in those last few versions. 

Has anything else changed on your system?

No changes at all.

I played some tables and it was all normal, noticed the message that there was an upgrade available, installed the upgrade and immediately noticed the difference.

I was all Windows updates disabled so that can't be it either....

I hear you. Just hard to track down as I don't clearly know what version you upgraded from.

Not to ask a stupid question but is there a way to just turn the whole RealDMD off in PinballX?

At this point those little animations are more problems than they are worth....
