Today I plan on installing some of Refinery's light mods. So stay tuned as plenty more mods are coming.....

#4 8 years ago

This is going to be good. I have a feeling you are going to go all out.

#5 8 years ago

"Promium".... I see what you did there

#6 8 years ago

Sweet looking promium!

#7 8 years ago

Spinners (by Hooked) connected to the outer picks. At first I was against making the pick targets easier but you likely hit those outer ones anyways so overall it hasn't changed the game much. Having the bass drum hit with them is worth it.

Wrapping up this weeks work is Pinball Refinery's Creeping Death light strips I just installed. More to come next week.

#12 8 years ago

Damn man looks awesome!

#13 8 years ago

I should comment that after installing all of Pinball Refinery's mods installation was super simple and they provided great instructions. I will be a future customer for sure.

#14 8 years ago

Looks great, get rid of those ugly yellow apron cards and get some nice art on there though.

What did that laser cut armor cost?

Absolutely planning to

Email Pinball Refinery. Great guys.

#18 8 years ago

Here's a few more for you to get. Pinsider Beatmasters shooter housing light up (he's working on a purple one that I requested for my Refinery Met Pro) the Refinerys show quality chrome leg bolts and my Leg light-ups (but you'd have to make them yourself) and the show quality chrome shooter housing and plunger from Refinery also. Don't forget the Color dmd and rgb speaker lights. It's fun spending your money.

#19 8 years ago

I think Met is going to break Tron's run as most modded pin.

#20 8 years ago

Installed the Total Lightshow (www.shiftled.com.au) last night. The board, sockets, wires, all very high quality. Installation was easier then I expected with the video and socket maps. I did have a roadbump flashing but was able to figure out the driver issue and is now posted on their troubleshooting page.

Lightshow in action running 1.02 code.

» YouTube video

It's official. There is not a Met in the world with more lights in it than yours!
A few hangups in the lightshow there. Not sure it went into FTB properly. And Sparky MB locked it for a few seconds. Probably because of the cross-supporting code running without the cross installed. 1.03 is more robust in any case.

#23 8 years ago

I thought so, have the cross to install today or if I put off Ill flash to 1.03

#24 8 years ago

My Met Pro LED has no pre drilled holes & t nuts for support rails. How did you mount yours? The holes from the peg legs?

#25 8 years ago

It looks like it goes completely dark during gameplay. I doubt I would like that.

No I drilled them. I may have pictures somewhere if you need em.

#27 8 years ago
Quoted from DCFAN:

It matches the premium light show though my video has a couple bugs because I was using code meant for the rising cross without it installed. The lights out are part of the experience.

That dark spot at the sparky MB start is old code. It was a bug and is not in the design. The lights match as closely as possible the behaviour of the premium.

#29 8 years ago

My Promium has a rising Grave Marker

#30 8 years ago

I used this power step up and liked the voltage read out on board. It takes the total light show 6v and bumps it to 12v

WP_20151121_18_27_51_Pro.jpgWP_20151121_18_27_51_Pro.jpg

Tapping into the matrix seemed easy until I found out where I picked did not have white red so I strung one off the bottom connector.

Finally rerouted the grave marker target wire as it was getting caught in the gear so I made a guide with a zip tie

Just flashed to 1.02a and its flawless so far, feels tighter also and no hangs.

This weekend I added Hooks powder coated apron with lights. WP_20151205_19_03_34_Pro.jpgWP_20151205_19_03_34_Pro.jpgWP_20151205_19_16_44_Pro.jpgWP_20151205_19_16_44_Pro.jpg

3 weeks later
#34 8 years ago

#35 8 years ago
