Looking for a P-ROC programmer who would be interested in very flexible part time work in the Chicago area to code common pinball assemblies for a pinball novelty project.   Serious money for a serious person.    Please call me if interested at:   847 867 6611       
PinMAME Integration / Re: X-files with pinmame

I forgot that Sega and the early Stern machines share the same (more or less) boardset so in theory it should work.  Can you try something?

add the -debug switch to the pinmame command line, and at the end of the command line put

2> debug.txt

Then go into the service mode and try to activate those coils again.  Then quit pinmame, and see if anything useful is in the debug.txt file.

Hi, sorry for the delay in replying, I don't check this forum so often these days....

You are probably the first person to actually try pinmame in one of the Sega machines, so it's somewhat untested.  I'll take a look at the code and see if anything leaps out....
User Projects / Pinball PARADISE P3-ROC project
« Last post by IBARAKURO on November 09, 2017, 05:42:19 PM »
Hello everybody,

I am happy to open a post for my pinball project.
it will be done with P3-ROC cards of course.  ::)
we will use a RASPBERRY PI for controller
tonight we managed to communicate with the P3-ROC card, and retrieve the contact information on 3 cards SW-16 ...
next step, communicate with the P-LED card :)

PinMAME Integration / Re: X-files with pinmame

So I was able to write some custom code, and I can fire off all coils.
So it seems the problem is with pinmame.

Any idea why coils C28 to C32 won't work ?
PinMAME Integration / X-files with pinmame
« Last post by Fantomas on October 15, 2017, 06:52:54 AM »

So I recently got a X-files and a P-ROC.
I got everything working except coils Q29 to Q32. At first I thought it was a problem on the powerdriver board, but I can find nothing wrong with it.
It seems like pinmame and/or the p-roc isn't working for those coils.

As a test I shorted SOLC and FLMP on U204 and in test when I select Q17 to Q24..., Q25 to Q32 also work.
So the datalines + chip enable are ok for U3 and U4

Then when I select Q25 to Q32 in test, it only works for Q25 to Q28 (+ Q17 to Q20)
Q29 to Q32 does nothing, Q21 to Q24 don't work either.
It seems like there is no signal for Q29 to Q32 .

Then I thought why not create custom code and see If I can control those coils like that, so I would know that the P-ROC is working correct.
But I'm unable to install "proc_env_installer_wHD_1.27" in windows 10, it gives an error on pypinproc... see my other post.

So I'm kinda stuck here...

Miscellaneous / Looking for P-ROC system development help in the Chicago area.
« Last post by stever on September 28, 2017, 02:22:29 PM »
Hi, my name is Steve Ritschdorff located in a western Chicago suburb 15 minutes directly west of O’Hare airport, and looking to hire someone experienced with all phases of the P-ROC operation that’s interested in working with a fellow pinhead in developing a complete system to control all types of pinball functions, and giving some basic tutoring on programming.   
I just finished an extensive rolling ball contraption that can be seen on YouTube   it has approximately 250 ft. that circles the inside perimeter of my basement, and is primarily made out of all types of used pinball parts that included wire ramps, many plastics, and many more odds & ends that I have accumulated over the years.        I’m interested in developing a similar type of contraption like the finished gravity style, but want to interface controlling devices (coils, magnets, motors, lamps, LEDs, sounds, etc).   
Let me know if interested?  I would pay cash, and very flexible.   Perhaps we could meet at the upcoming Expo?       

pyprocgame / pyprocgame python project to testwith a (williams) virtual playfield
« Last post by noitbe1 on September 28, 2017, 09:05:59 AM »
hello all.

I don't know if this has been covered already, I'm still a newby...

I have a pyprocgame python project running and I can manage to run a display. So you guys know if it's possible to plug the pyprocgame with a visual display (visual pinball??) in my case I'd like to get the TOTAN and be able to test the mods with a virtual playfied and to be able to test the coil, lightening, mods interactions and so on...?

I've look into the web but I couldn't figure out if it's possible and it ha been done before (for a know playfield such as Bally/williams or others...)

Hello all,
I'm trying to understand how to fill the yaml file which link the P-ROC to the pinball.

How do you know how to fill the number, switch number and so on...

for instance:

        number: SD1
        label: 'Left Coin Chute'
        tags: coin
        number: SD2
        label: 'Center Coin Chute'
        tags: coin
        number: SD3
        label: 'Right Coin Chute'
        tags: coin
        number: SD4
        label: '4th Coin Chute'
        tags: coin
        number: SD5
        label: 'Service Exit'

Is it part of the manual somewhere or do we fill infos ourself manually? In that case, how do we know that we got i right?
