Rather than clutter up the owners thread, thought it would be easier to have a thread dedicated to MB mods. I got my CE yesterday and have been very busy trying to mod the game. CE owners are at a big disadvantage because CGC has literally disabled the plug and play options, including for the plasma disc, the drac coffin LED and the speaker lights. The manual literally states that the settings screen has been omitted for the CE version for many of these cool features. So, we have to be a bit more creative for mod connections, but the intention is at least for our mods to work with all versions of the MBR and original games (where possible), with connections varying depending on which version you own.
So far, we have the following mods ready to go (our site will be updated tomorrow as well as our Pinside shop, pricing available tomorrow):
*Trough light - blue shown; all game versions.
*Backboard lights (one 6 inch led strip on each side, purple and white shown; CE and original. It's not needed in the SE and LE versions as CGC has done a good job with the RGB lighting .
*Disco ball! - Fits all versions, the ball activates with the "Shoot Again" lamp in the remakes and in the original it will activate when extra ball is lit, matches the dracula/disco ball animation on the display.
*Plasma disc - I am still working on testing this, but for the SE it will plug into the game's Plasma port. Not sure where to connect in the CE yet (any suggestions from the crowd?), nor the original.
*Drac Coffin LED - CE version only (stock in SE and LE versions). This is a simple mod, just a 5" LED strip, BUT it will require light soldering of two connections (no way around it really the way the game has been wired. It is soldered directly to the coffin flasher board, which is easy to access. Took me 30 seconds to solder it. I'm thinking $10 shipped.
*Mods in progress - Speaker lights similar to what we offer for MMR and undercab lights that will match the speaker lights pattern (Remake CE version only). They will not be interactive with the game as CGC has disabled speaker lights in the CE version.
I think that's about it for now. I look forward to see the great work that others will be doing too.
