in that repository you will also find the pcb lauoyt and schematics
for the lamp  matrix controller that I have designed for the pinball

and also arduino code for controlling it, and the dmd and also some
dosbox patches (which is specific to my personal project)

I would love to help you on whatever design you choose to
build/create. But I would be extremely happy if you chose to build on
of the other pinball fantasies table layouts :-)

In the future I'd like to design a fully free (as in freedom) design
for a pinball machine. But I have decided to start by building a
machine based on a pre-existent layout because I knew that pinball
building is a complex project and that designing a good layout demands
a lot of knowledge, so I thought I should first learn how to build and
then in a future project try to learn how to design a good playfield.
It is not easy to master everything at once, so I preffer to make it
in 2 complementary steps.

I am still planning my trip.
