After building a virtual pinball cab back in 2013, I finally got around to trying DOF. After seeing all of Terry Red's videos, who wouldn't give it a shot? His work has been stellar.
I finally set up a working cabinet.xml files that used 2 strips of addressable LEDs (left and right playfield). However, whenever I started a VPX table that utilized DOF, the Teensy 3.2 activity light would flash rapidly (indicating activity) but the LED strips would turn bright white and stay that way.
I could not find any software fixes for the issue.
I ran across an odd post in one forum that mentioned "bridging pins 15 and 16" on the Teensy 3.2 to solve this issue.

I snipped a small piece of lead wire from a resistor and soldered it between the Teensy's pins 15 and 16. I could have just used a blob of solder, but I wanted the potential fix to be more easily reversible.
In any event, after connecting pins 15 and 16 on the Teensy, the next time I loaded a table DOF worked. I was floored.
I have no idea why this works. I don't know exactly who solved this problem initially.
I hope that this can help someone else.
BTW - If anyone knows who found this solution originally, please let me know and I'll credit them here for their work. After all....they deserve the thanks.
