just ordered one myself!
installed mine last night ... pretty simple but a little tight as already mentioned ... ALSO as the video stated the "data east" holes shown in the instructions do not work because you cannot close the back box door at that height (it will hit the top of the color dmd)... Then when i dropped it down to the available next holes i still have to slightly lift the back box door to get it to clear but it works ... Seriously the hardest part for me was "Step 6" the tight space you have in removing the 15 pin CN6 and then installing the "power tap".... not much room to work in there ..... nice mod tho .. looks great and makes a big difference unfortunately I didn't get a lot of time to play and enjoy before i went to bed ...... off topic if you have the Pinsound Board this just makes adjusting that even more cumbersome but i guess those are the breaks and like BlackJacker already said definitely NOT a deal breaker .....actually if we could extend the existing 26 pin ribbon cable that goes to CN3 it would make accessing the lower part of the back box less frustrating ... I assume that would be possible by adding 26 pin ribbon extension to it but im not a computer guy ... definitely gonna look into it
Quoted from Williestyle:
GNR Colorist here! So you found the snake pit bug! When coloring a game there are rare instances where a frame or transition sequence is not able to be colored properly. This final frame of the sequence (which sorta seems like a glitchy frame to begin with) was one of those instances due to the score being a little too embedded with the artwork. I colored it all green for a while, then decided on all blue. The other option is to black it out if it really bugs you guys. You wouldn't even notice something was missing. (To be perfectly clear, I would only be blacking out the wacky blue frame, not the rest of the awesome artwork with Slash and the snake). If I get enough feedback on this, I'll make the change with the first update ROM.
I had a blast coloring the game and as a huge GNR fan I made every effort to be as accurate as possible. I researched what video/concert a sequence was sampled from and got the clothing colors right, same with the the color of the stripes on the Mustang GT from the Don't Cry video, etc, etc. I tried to leave no stone unturned. Hope you guys are enjoying it as much as I am!
I'm open to other feedback, and making additional updates within reason.
Now thats what i call S E R V I C E !!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks .... Ill vote black it out myself!
