Printed a macropad from thingiverse not this one but can’t find Og files.

Parts:

  • 3D printer filament of your choice
  • Arduino Pro Micro (ATmega32u4)
  • 12 x Cherry MX-style mechanical key switches

I used KBFirmware to make the Firmware for the Arduino Pro Micro:
Used this pin out to find out what the KBfirmware pinouts were using

The Wiring:

PINS

I tried this layout for Minecraft
Made using Keyboard Layout Editor

Setting up a Home PBX phone netwerk (3CX)

BUY a Raspberry Pi and install Raspberry Pi Imager

Then flash your sd card with Debian with Raspberry 32bit

we install the 3CX Phone System (IP PBX) on a Raspberry Pi using

one command:
wget https://downloads-global.3cx.com/downloads/misc/d10pi.zip; sudo bash d10pi.zip
follow the installation and choose webbrowser

3CX Dashboard

Create Extensions

Download 3CX communicator for your phone/tablet and scan QR code

This is the easies way to make your home phone network work instantly.

How to use the 3CXPhone app for OSX
Download the app and install it, change in the preferences the Local SIP port to your 3CX server.

Check your port:

Settings > Network Settings > Ports

You need to create a extension first before you can configure a phone
Add a phone:

I just used the first phone in the pull down menu and added my mac’s Mac Address

Restart 3CXPhone and your connected

Having fun with the IVR

Its easy to make a IVR upload some custom wav files to give direction.

Idea: Fun IVR game. Find the right numbers to dial and progress in the IVR.

Setting up a SiP Trunk for outbound calling.

I use callpirates

Demul on my Pinball

I got MAME running, but I wanted more..
So I tried loading Demul.

This didn’t go like I wanted at first needed to edit the script use a hidden command in pin popper to load the playfield “bezel”

But before I did that I needed to fit it on the screen,
I don’t know if I want to play on the playfield like I do now.
For now its ok but maybe I will change it in the future.
To make it work I needed to install windows app.
Found a good one that works, but after running it I found out that
I lost focus so I wrote a Autokey script to keep it ontop and press f3 to remove the menu bar in window view..
Script and hidden command for keeping playfield running below.
Here is a video how it resizes:

Here are some pictures of the 2 games I have running for now:

Made some backglasses for them and DMD images..
Wanted to use video, but found nothing fitting…

Will upload the script and tools later.

Pinball Update

Ok it’s time for a little update on the Pinball Machine.
Stopped using Hyperpin and moved over to PinUP popper and PinPlayer.
Its the future¬†for Visual pinball…

After installing a new screen for the backglass I started searching for a new Frontend

and that is how I found out about PinUP popper.

Then the updates happend very quick:

After some tweaking I was able to install it and get it running on my Cab.

Here is video of the update.

Some pictures:

It has legs! Starting to keep it clean inside
Mame Pup Video's PinUP Player PUP video
Colored DMD
РYou can find PinUP popper frontend. if you follow the link.
Suggest you read the wiki a few times…- I made me some custom DMD overlays because of my 2 screensetup.
Been using DMDoverlay  but need to change the size here and there.
So we made some custom overlays download link below.

You can find my¬†Custom overlay DMD’s¬† in my mega.co.nz folder.

– I wanted to add some Mame games.
Looked up some TATE games and now I have about 124 games.
Here is my game list ( Pastbin). PinUP popper got a nice search feature for pinball tables.
But for MAME games it will not work so i made my Wheels, DMD, etc myself.
Used the autorecorder for the playfield recording.
Here are someimages of my Mame wheel images:

You can find my Custom Mame Wheels  in my mega.co.nz folder.

– I also needed custom DMD’s for my Mame games:

You can find my Custom Mame  DMDS  in my mega.co.nz folder.

And of course I needed backglasses our Marquee but because of most
of the marquee images would be on the DMD I wanted to add Video’s.


Searched on youtube and (p)ornhub to find some useable video clips
Yes (p)ornhub apparently lots of TATE games are hot girls games ūüėÄ
So little warning for the videos not all are Safe for under 18 ūüėČ
Did a little editing on them but not enough to call it ready.
But i will share them and update them if i have time.

You can find my Custom Mame videos in my mega.co.nz folder.

Install my images and videos in your default mame popvideo folder.

They are already named correct, if you use the same romset.
Didn’t use a rom organiser, so there can be errors.
See my game list at pastbin for the names I used.

Wheel images > Wheel
DMD images > DMD
Video images >  BackGlass

Wip: Syscheck 0.0.1

I am working on something else.

s1

 

Just something to check what extra things are installed on your switch.
s2

Before making this I did’t know¬†that I have Sys-FTPD installed ūüėÄ

But its still in Dev fase need to find out how to write better to a txt.
My methode works and it doesnt work. Get output but not the correct ūüėÄ
Got it working by cheating in the code….
s3
But it works.. SysCheck.txt gets created and holds the right information
Added ; so you could load it in as a csv..

s4

Plus some self promotion, and the credits will be added soon.
Need to check this firs ūüėÄ sorry guys

Will not release this at this moment because of:
Banner
Since Atmosphère 0.10.1  changed the folders for these programs.
Atmosphere will move them at start up so the user will not notice.

So its not anymore in titles like in 0.9.4 but in contents,
I need to rewrite the checks code for 0.10.0 this is a easy fix but still something to do.

And i did’t expected this move of Atmosphere..

But if you can compile, you can download it from github Dcnigma SysCheck

Owell

ULaunch 0.2 release

Two weeks ago uLaunch 0.2 came out by XorTroll

I like uLaunch a lot it suppresses a lot of warnings.
(so no accedently update to 9.1.0 Like i did when I was on 8…)

Its a bit slower then the normal dashboard but i get used to that.

What I miss is quick scroll action or so like: 10 apps in once if you press up
This way I can access the ftp app easy.

But a quick acess buttonftp on top is also sweet.

So that is what i made if you want My modded version of uLaunch 0.2 follow the link.
Install same way as for uLaunch, in Atmosphere > titles folder.
(not for Atmosphère 0.10.1  XorTroll is still working on it.)
I also have a  Logo Amiibo button for quick access.
Next I could try making it more dynamic so you could load 2 custom apps of choose.

Skinners can move the icons if they use ftp_icon amiibo_icon in the json file:

        "ftp_icon": {  
  "x": 40,  
  "y": 80,  
},  

Also there is a bug in my version for the album it will load homebrew menu in applet mode. drawing
But i guess this is part fault in the way I load the apps.
Need to investigate that more “more research is needed”.

Going to try and see what happens if i load album from a menu icon.
my guts says it will load hbmenu but we will see.

Cheers Dcn
