Did the game come originally with a mirrored backglass or translite?

Mirrored backglass

Thank you!!

I'm pretty sure that's incorrect. I believe any wpc95 with the "tub" style backbox was a translite. I can check my NGG later tonight

You are incorrect... The exact opposite it true. NGG has a backglass, not a translite, as do all games with the integrated light panel.
If your NGG has a translite, its a repro and a sheet of glass, not original.

#1506 84 days ago

According to my game, you're both wrong: NGG has a non-mirrored backglass.

I did see a mirrored version for sale once at Expo (on a wall, not in a game), but all the gofers I saw otherwise had a backglass with no mirroring in the artwork.

AFM was a 'light tub' game and had a translite.

I said nothing about "mirrored".

#1508 84 days ago

I said nothing about you.

latenight:mirrored
scribbles:translite

Oh, this:

Except (at least) AFM. So you're wrong too

Yup, I stand corrected, screened backglass. Apparently the prototypes were mirrored, https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/mirrored-backglasses-in-pinball-list-them-here/page/2#post-688951.

metallic is correct. I purchased my NGG NIB way back in the day, and it came with a non mirrored backglass. Medieval Madness also left the factory with a integrated light tub and a translite, not a backglass.

#1511 84 days ago

My memory might be off, but I thought I read somewhere that Pat Lawlor insisted on it being a backglass and that's the reason NGG has one versus a translite that was more common those days. My NGG has the backglass (non-mirrored).

#1512 84 days ago

Well we'll well, my NGG has a backglass. Non mirrored. I stand corrected. I would have sworn it was a translite.

#1513 81 days ago

I’m happy that I’m expecting a real backglass (whew glad that finally got sorted) when mine arrives from the good ol USA......in about 2-2 1/2months. It’s going to be a long wait.

Hi guys!

Doing a playfield swap on my gofers, just now reattaching the wiring harness and all has gone well, really looking forward to playing.

I was hoping someone might help me out a bit on the driven disc. I noticed mine was very noisy, and upon taking the mech apart and cleaning it I saw the disc itself has tabs that pass through optos, and it seemed like the optos were making contact with the tabs which was making all the racket.

Is that operating as intended? Because I ordered a new disc, and those tabs also hit the optos on the opto board. Should the wheel just spin freely?

It should not hit the optos. It needs to spin freely.

thank you!

Mine sounds like the wheel on Wheel of Fortune when it spins.

The wheel adjusts up and down, but both the wheel and the opto board seem very fixed in their position from side to side.

Already got a new disc because it was cheap, but the new one rattles against the optos too.

My NGG is having some sound issues. The background sounds/music seems to come and go. Sometimes it will start back up at the start of a new ball. When it's not working, it occasionally makes the start-up sound. The feature sounds work- when I hit a target and things like that....it's just the background music that isn't working all the time.
Any ideas?

Do a RAM clear... Turn the game off and remove the batteries and let it sit for 10 mins, then do the reverse.
You'll lose your settings and high scores, but that usually clears up nutty behaviors.

Thanks for the suggestion. That did not clear it up, but I went and reseated all of the ribbon cable connectors and that seems to have done it. Didn’t think it would be something so simple!

After many years of ownership this suddenly happens. I have a spare for now, but actually after looking closer I see how it really ties in with the theme.

Can golf balls be drilled and used for other purposes ?

Made mine about 4 years ago, drilling the ball and secured using 2 part epoxy.

Ok thanks , will have a look at that.

I moved this from my Tee'd Off to my NGG. Has worked well for over 3 years.

If anyone wants a shooter rod with a white titlelist golf ball on it, I’ll mail you one for $25 with shipping. I took this off my NGG and replaced with an alternate shooter rod.
