This is a Beta version of UltraDMD.  For full installation instructions see the Documentation page.

Revision History

May 5, 2016
–UltraDMD version 1.4.16050500 download
–UltraDMD Scene Builder (requires UltraDMD ActiveX) – download
–Visual Pinball test table (requires VP 9 & UltraDMD ActiveX) – download

Changes:

  • UltraDMD now has an installer.  No more manually running RegAsm with administrator privileges.
  • Color DMD and color virtual DMD supported.
  • Table authors will appreciate the new scoreboard (not enabled by default).  Change DisplayScoreboard to DisplayScoreboard00
  • UltraDMD configuration window (right-click on the DMD virtual display), now has “Use Full Color” option.

Known Issues:

  • This should fix the previous release which had issues with the installer on Windows 8 and Windows 10.  If you encounter a problem during installation, please report the problem in VPForum and use the previous version 1.3.15100401 for now.
  • Now that the installer defaults to Program Files, the error log files may fail to write (because writing to the Program Files folder require administrator privileges).  We will start writing this to a temp location which does not require privileges.
  • Switching to “Use Full Color” requires exiting UltraDMD (but there is no indication that this is the case).

      Yep. Thanks for the report. I noticed just today when I was looking at some other changes. I now have the configuration page reading the version/build info from the actual control. So they should match in the next and all subsequent releases. Until then, rely on the version reported on the DMD startup. Thx.
