I'd be in too.

I'd buy one to have as a spare, just in case.

Quoted from Rob_G:

I may be wrong, but I think this was only fitted on the pro models. Maybe there's a slight geometry difference because of the standup targets on the pro?
In the 'Making of ACDC pinball' video that Stern released, the original whitewood appears to show the ball could also exit the pop bumpers to the right, under the right ramp.
Rob

You are correct- PRO only per Stern because of the Bell type.

Looking for opinions. I want to enhance the lighting experience of acdc. My choices are Pinbits lightning bolts, hooked’s ver4 lightning bolts, or pinstadium lights / Orion’s Belt.

I’m leaning towards pinstadium or Orion’s Belt as I can do more than just enhance the lightning bolt flashers.

Any thoughts or opinions?

#1357 23 days ago

I haven't heard of orions belt. Well, except for the constellation.

Please don't.

I 100% recommend the pinbit bolts and the hooked bolts (if you can find a set that will last). The Orion's belt falls into the category of, "Someone asked if they could do something before they asked if they should do it.". To me that system is WAY overkill but I know some people will like it. Just my opinion.

Do you already have the clear red apron with the pinball refinery kit that adds flashers under their and behind the ramp diverters? Those actually integrate very well into the game play as they let you know when the canon is active for something.

No on the apron. And that’s a good idea, Maybe that with the lightning bolts are the direction I should go. What did you mean about finding a set that will last (hooked’s version)? He’s up to ver4 so maybe it was early runs of the mod?

I just bought the hooked ones, and by mistake got the gen 4. They were bright as shit. I play in a dark garage and it was nauseating. I sent them back for the gen2s. I should be getting those any day. I honestly like the look of the hooked ones the best. They look the most "classic" / "retro" to me. So, just a caution, if you play in a dark room, the gen4s are super bright.

I honestly don't recall which version I had. I went through 3 sets before throwing in the towel. The LED's were going out in rows. He was great to work with and was replacing them with no hassle at all but at that point I changed to the pinbits ones. I do prefer the look of the hooked ones if he's gotten the reliability figured out. It's been several years so I'm sure I was on a pretty early version.

#1362 23 days ago

I picked up Gen 3 bolts from hooked about a year ago. They are pretty bright, which to me is the entire point of these things... I play in the dark and it feels great to me when they go off. But I like flashy things

Zero issues with mine.

I have Pin Stadiums in my Met and Iron Maiden (on pretty low brightness settings) as the middle of the PF gets pretty dark on those, but the lighting is so good in AC/DC I don't see the need to add them. I also don't want to make the hideous artwork more visible haha.

#1363 23 days ago

I have bright blue bolts, and I attached the stock plastics over them. This way it looks kinda stock when they are off, but the whole bolt flashes when they are on.

#1364 23 days ago

Does anyone know if Pinbits lightning bolts are still being made? And if Pinbits are still being made, Which is the better one to go with... Hooked or Pinbits?

#1365 23 days ago

I bought the Pinbits lightning bolts within the last 6 months for my Luci VE, and I love 'em. Pinbits is still around.

#1366 23 days ago

I have a brand new set of Hooked Gen 4 Bolts in Red with Yellow Lights. $85 Shipped. PM if interested

Thank you for the offer, but I would like the white lights. Although, I’ve seen posts on here saying with the white lights you might need to wear a welders helmet during game play

#1368 23 days ago

I have generation 1 Pinbits lighting bolts on my AC/DC , they are bright and look great. 1:21 in the first video

#1369 21 days ago

The pinbits are better because of the back flash ... in my opinion. Love em.

Yep, the back flash. That's why I chose them. I love 'em too.

#1371 17 days ago

Sparky sent me a topper he's working on to test fit and take some pics. Liked it so much, I decided to buy it from him. It's a 2 piece powder coated metal topper that has a dimensional look to it.

Lighting is sold separate and can be purchased through mezelmods, at least the RGB fading mod. I added a couple flashers tied to the left and right ramp lightning bolts. Really like the look of it.

If you like it, check with sparky.

hey guys!
I bought this mod from Cointaker and can’t figure out how to plug hit. Instruction links is dead. Here’s a picture of what I got. I think it’s missing the part that gives power to the mod..
someone knows the guy who make them?

I asked cointaker but no answer.
thanks in advance!

You are missing the connector that plugs into the white control box and runs to the games.power connection. What mod is that?

https://cointaker.com/products/acdc-stage-cover-band-lighting-mod

Is there another place in this game where I can take the power without using the plug under the plunger? I'm not familiar with SAM system. More a B/W guy
thanks

Doesnt answer your question, but the plug under the plunger is the best and easiest way.

#1376 7 days ago

Yeah, you need the power adapter that goes to it. They are cheap on ebay. Just search for an LED light strip power adapter. Other than that you would just have to cut off the current connector and soldier in a new power and ground wire and connect it to either a 12volt line or 5 volt line depending on what that strip requires.

When I made the kits I used to sell I used two light strips. One was a 6V strip that tied into the GI so that it was always lit and the other was a 12V strip that tied into the flasher so it only came on when that flasher went off.

Unless you are handy with electrical stuff just buy a power adapter and move alone. Only problem with that though is that (if memory serves me correctly) that plug in the cabinet is always on as long as the game is plugged in. Thus you will have to turn that mod on and off along with the game. Kind of a dumb design if you ask me but that is just personal preference.

If you are using the service outlet to work on the game you usually wan the game to be off.

It is easy enough to convert the power supply to a molex connector of you know how to crimp wires.

Anyone have any decent instruction cards?

Yes, but I was reference that the mod uses the service outlet as a dumb design, not that the service port works when the game is off.

I agree that adding a molex is easy to do but most people buying these plug and play mods aren't comfortable with electrical work. From a company like Coin Taker, I'm pretty disappointed they took the lazy way out and didn't make it connect to a molex adapter like 99% of the other mods of this nature have.

Thanks. I tough it would come plug and play but I’m ok to do it myself.
I would not recommend to ordering it by Cointaker. No adapter at all. For 100$+
