  • Bram Stokers Dracula - DMD problem

    I have a problem with the DMD on this machine
    I think it is only when displaying the game credits (game creators - not coins)
    The text seems to be the issue
    Ran the DMD test and all lines worked as they should have
    Any ideas appreciated (see attached pictures)

    I will try and get a better picture of the problem and exactly when it happens

    Do you have another WPC game there you can swap out the display driver and/or display? might help narrow down the issue.

      Thanks for the reply
      I am pretty sure I did that (and the cables) with Dr Who
      But I will do it again on the weekend
      The DMD test runs fine - all lines perfect
      The display is a new colour LED (just waiting for clear speaker panel)

        I had a similar DMD issue and did all the standard reseating of cables and swapping DMDs and boards - turned out to be my new CPU board.

            Solution (I think)
            I think it was just the pin headers on the boards
            I cleaned them all with a contact cleaning pad and the display is 100% !
            The IDC sockets are not that tight - so maybe I should make up some new cables - but good for now
