I absolutely appreciate anyone willing to put the time in to make these, so I’m hesitant to criticize anything. But since you asked, I feel like there’s a lot of words which kind of clutters the very good looking art.
Hope that helps.

Thanks so much, bowz! :-)I think in that way too, because I don´t understand people´s downvotes in these cases! I respect the efforts from users with a lot of or few knowledges or skills!

I will print them in chrome vinyl for those users. It will become in a very interesting result. I will notice you when I have them printed.

Are you putting these out there for people to download for free? Nice job either way. The second maiden one with the band description needs the image rotated 90°

How would a person get these? Seems like a lot of times the size can’t be corrected when attempting to print.

Hi all

A mate was telling me of 'someone' overseas( I know I know, not much info to work with ) who makes custom side armour for games - including IMDN.
Anyone know who that might be? ( not the generic Stern Mummy Fist side armour that you can buy at a few places )

Appreciate any direction on this - thanks

About imagen rotate in second card, well it is something related with me easthetic vision.

Sorry you didn't like the orb, we hadn't received Any feedback about it not being bright enough, but we take feedback seriously and always try to improve. We have changed the light source we use and it is now as bright or brighter than the smd light used in the game. We can also do more colors now, red, green, white, purple and red.

All good. You make great mods . I have a lot of your mods and appreciate your time and creativity making them. There were no complaints of the purchase price. Just went a different direction with this one. .i preferred to have no wire exposed and could have been a little brighter. I also ended up with a smaller size orb than the one I had. Only listed it dirt cheap so someone could use it. Basically free when you consider shipping.

Yea... mine was not as bright as i would have expected. Can i get the bright one?

For anyone who has our original orb Mod for the pro, I will gladly replace the light source for you, even if you bought it second hand. I would just ask that you cover shipping back to me and to ship it back out, that's about $6 round trip. Also, if you want a different color, no charge to do that either. Contact me through PM to make arrangements. I will turn the orb around within 1 day. I can guarantee you this will be very bright.

Here is purple in my game, brighter than the stock led and really stands out.

What's the wavelength (nm) of that purple? Blues and purples are on the UV end of the spectrum and can damage retinas with continued exposure over time.

#673 1 year ago

Here is ours. Available next week. Same concept we used on Munsters.

I think you need a lot of exposure to colors to have any impact. As nice as the orb mod is, I don’t expect anyone to stare at it for hours, it’s also diffused, reducing any impact further. If anyone is truly concerned about the effects of led colors, I’ll dig up the wavelength as I’ve got it somewhere, at least for the purple we use as that is a custom made color for us.

You don't have to stare directly at it. It only has to be in your field of vision. Publishing the wavelength is a responsible move and would help people make informed decisions about adding to their natural UV exposure or choosing a different color to avoid the issue entirely.

Is UV the same as black light?

#678 1 year ago
Quoted from MJW:

Is UV the same as black light?

UV is a range spanning about 200nm on the light spectrum, black light is on the visible light side of the UV range. 450nm is right at the upper edge of black light.

#679 1 year ago

Thanks for publishing it. For this application, it's not nearly as large a consideration or potential exposure as on the pinstadiums that I suspect are in the same range for the "UV" part of them, but they don't publish the actual wavelength specs for their product, which is not cool.

The mod we are making uses the existing Stern Pinball light.

People can make their own choices, and most colors are great. I only get concerned when I see the deep blues and purples because they've become more prevalent and I don't think most people know the long-term exposure risks, especially to young eyes. That's why when I see "UV" kits or blues and purples I encourage publication of the wavelength of the lights on that mod so people can make an informed decision. Lermods is the first one I've seen that actually published that information for their purple LED mod and they should be commended for it.

What wavelength is dangerous for us owning pinball machines? Please advise.

#683 1 year ago
Quoted from Tmezel:

What wavelength is dangerous for us owning pinball machines? Please advise.

Generally speaking, the closer you get to the UV wavelength range of 200-400nm, the worse exposure over time is for your eyes (and your DNA/skin). It's the same reason they put warnings on black lights about exposure because they can cause eye damage and/or DNA mutation/premature skin aging.

That said, in a pinball with spot usage that's not always on, it would be less cut and dry of a case than an always-on or mostly-always on situation. But more information about the specs of the light wavelength in given products with blue and purple lighting is always better so people can weigh the risks and make an informed choice.

Here's a wavelength chart I grabbed off the internet to help visualize the light wavelengths on the spectrum:

Would be great if mezel could work one that as they did with the X-men newton ball, which was a fantastic change from the stock setup.

#689 1 year ago
Quoted from Tmezel:

So I’d venture to say that on the premium/le, you’ll capture the stock rgb effects in your orb, but on the pro, it will remain white. So that’s a good difference compared to ours which adds a color choice for the pro instead of just the white stock led.

The only way DEEP purple light could possibly damage your eyes if it was the only light source ( in a pitch black room ) staring at it for long periods of time. Hence a black light fluorescent bulb in a pitch black room smokin weed staring at Jimi Hendrix posters all night long. Once the introduction of all other visable light forms ( the longer wavelengths of light ) , It washes out the shorter ,tighter wavelengths , thus making it safe for all of us. To say that a small UV led light could possibly damage your eyes within the vast array of a thousand other full spectrum lights is ridiculous personally. So lighten up and enjoy the UV love.

Not strictly true. I'm not being alarmist, but people need to know there ARE risks to light in that area of the spectrum and make informed decisions. There are many studies going on regarding light towards the UV end of the spectrum (especially on blue LED since it's become pervasive in consumer electronics) and studies as recent as last year have shown as little as 8 lux of blue light has a negative effect. 8 lux is so dim you can barely tell it's on.

Quick question.....I got the replacement coil in. But...is everyone just soldering in place essentially or are they tracing the wires and cutting all the zip ties to disconnect the coil wires completely and do the soldering on a table?

I just unsoldered the wires from the old coil then soldered it onto the same lug on the new coil (one at a time so as not to mix them up), then mounted the new coil. Be sure to clip off the diode if your replacement coil has one running across the lugs.

Right...but I'm saying, are you leaving the power wires to the coil still attached under the PF or removing the wires so you can do the soldering away from the PF?

On location, so I do it on the machine. I don't disconnect from the harness.

I have the new coil(not installed yet). Do I need to make any initial adjustments to the auto-plunge power or is it a wait and see thing?
