Quoted from Titan_Pinball:

Allright cool cats and kittens, the inside cab decals are up for sale!
https://www.titanpinball.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=60&product_id=161
Thanks for eveyone's feedback and suggestions. This is somewhat of a soft product launch, and I have no stock at the moment so it will take me a couple days to get some quatities made up so don't expect our usual lightning fast shipping.
Also, I don't want to hijack compy's thread too much here... although he says it's fine.
If you have any specific questions hit up the "Contact Us" link on our website: https://www.titanpinball.com/index.php?route=information/contact

ORDERED!

Quoted from Yelobird:

Let this day be known as the day the 2020 TWIPY Mod of the year was born! Simply WOW. Sorry due to my own delays (chores) I wanted to have this done on Saturday but alas not in the cards. Installed today and Amazing is all that can be said. The build quality and simplicity of this mod are incredible. After reading the well documented instructions the install took Maybe 20 minutes. Everything even for the most novice modder was plug and play. Professional boards and electronics fit seamlessly with little if any permanent modifications. Take your TZ to the 4th Dimension with this incredible transforming upgrade! Only warning, if your on the fence Get on the list NOW as I suspect when this mod gets out it will go viral no joke. Amazing seller/creator, finally an upgrade worthy of value added change. (Innovation) I showed a Few game play images but tried Not to show them all as that to me is part of the amazing experience and I would hate to spoil that for anyone. I can answer any specific questions and Note I am Not a sponsor or linked to this mod simply a lucky and very impressed buyer. Well done Jimmy, you should take a bow on this one! With that said, as kind of said in Jaws, your going to need a Bigger Counter! Your going to be making a LOT of these! lol FYI, sorry about the lighting. I had the work lights on to get pictures. In a gameroom setting the HD animation simply explodes across the back.

Great review, looks epic! I’m in.

compy - please put me down for one of the lcd mods! Looks amazing!

#305 29 days ago

Good morning all,

Just an update on the art blades. We worked with Titan to manufacture these using a design that matches the starry sky LCD plastics as an option to this mod (of course you don't need this mod to buy them).

As such, you'll order the art blades straight from Titan. They'll ship when they're ready (likely within the next week or so). Those are here: https://www.titanpinball.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=63&product_id=161 (Select Bally/WMS and "Starry Sky").

To get the upgraded impact shield (LCD protective plastic) for this mod, for $25 we'll throw in the matching starry sky reverse printed plastic and it'll be preinstalled on your unit.

Hope this clears up any confusion!

Quoted from ceterumnet:

Gotcha on the list. I'll shoot you a PM.

Some large shipments of displays and PCBs are due in today. Fingers crossed!

#307 29 days ago

Kicking myself for missing the first post about this mod and getting on the list late. It is perfect for TZ.
You'd think would be great for other games as well, but a lot of games have stuff back there or stuff in the way.

#308 29 days ago

I found the first issue with this mod. I can’t stop Staring at it while I play dammit! Lol.

#309 29 days ago

I need the upgraded impact shield (LCD protective plastic) for $25 preinstalled.

Next 10 are on the CNC now and headed to paint as soon as the stupid weather cooperates. So I'll reach out to the next set individually.

Can’t wait to play a TZ with this mod. Hopefully someone brings one to TPF 2021!

#314 27 days ago

Got my display in the game. I am in the middle of a full tear down so I can only view it in test mode. I did enjoy the few screens that came up.

Installing was very easy. Only thing I did different was on the left side where the L bracket mounts, it was touching the light socket. I drilled a small pilot hole about 1/2 inch over and moved it.

Same feedback I provided. Don’t use the existing likely worn holes as they interfere with the GI plus the new wood mount 1” in makes it stronger. Simple adjustment and will continue to get better. Loving this creation!

#317 27 days ago

Good evening

In preparation for my upcoming TZ, could you please PM me with details on how to get one unit plus side decals

Yeah, yelobird caught the same deal. I ended up just extending my L brackets out the back a little farther. I'm looking to get some shorter brackets fabbed so it's not so much of an issue.

Regarding the display, there is a slight design change to better secure the display into the panel. We're moving to a full joiner bracket system where bolts will run through the displays and be secured by a steel bracket to the wood panel with a locknut. This will prevent looseness caused by shipping vibrations and the shorter wooden tabs.

Otherwise, thanks to Yelobird, we're making those installation instructions even clearer and we've got someone willing to shoot some video of an installation as well!

Busy busy!

Have you thought of doing this same thing for CFTBL rather than the window on the pf? There is definitely space and it would be far more appropriate for the player's view than looking right down in the middle of the pf.

The point was to replace the hologram

We have thought about it and have tested various configurations. We do have some ideas that could potentially "WOW" the player, it's just about making things cost feasible.

However, as zr11990 pointed out above, the Hologram real estate is far easier to take advantage of.

#322 25 days ago

Understood. I'm one of the fortunate few with a green, working hologram.

#323 25 days ago

This is an amazing mod Well Done!!!...very keen to find out what future titles are under consideration on the short list please?

#324 25 days ago

If you want to be a hero, my vote is for a CFTBL PF window video mod, needless to say LooooOOOoooOOOng overdue!

Sweet. I already checked out the package; everything is connector-ed beautifully. The big challenge will be how to plug in to my way over-modded game! Seriously, the PDB is begging for mercy..

Well, that's the exact reason I designed the power system to be completely isolated for the game. The board only uses the 5V connector to sense when the game is on. Everything else is pulled and regulated off of the 12V power supply included in the package.

Can't wait to see it!

#331 25 days ago

I saw it being mentioned in an older post, someone requested it? Either way, looks like a sweet mod, just don't own a TZ

Quoted from robotron911:

. A dark horse candidate - Last Action Hero. With all those action clips from the movie and Arnold in full ham-it-up mode, it seems like a good pairing.

I Absolutely agree :party:the action graphics are very cool on thus game and LAH definitely has the room...Its got my vote Last Action Hero Please

I received my mod and it's pretty dang cool! Installation took me about an hour and the instructions provided were top notch. The main problem with this mod is that your scores will go down because you are looking at the mod and not the ball Jimmy was a joy to work with and I would HIGHLY recommend dealing with him!

As others have mentioned you will likely want to drill a new hole under the playfield for the left bracket as it is pretty close to a light socket, but Jimmy has mentioned that later kits will have a different bracket. The reflection from the DMD can be a bit anoying as you are trying to look at the beautiful new mod, so I might try and rig up some sort of deflector.

Bottom line great mod, great guy!

I am so glad that everything arrived safely and the installation went well! It was a genuine pleasure working with you!

For those wondering, I usually have a "bent plastic" from pinball life (https://www.pinballlife.com/widebody-bent-plastic.html) on my game. It's a great thing at only 10 bucks, so I'd suggest tossing one in your next order. Maybe we'll make some ourselves at some point and ship it with the mod... but naming is always a bitch.

We're calling this particular line of mods "Pinvision" as a play on "envision", and the DMD guards started out as "DMD Glare Guard", then you had "Bent Plastic", so maybe ours will be "Obtuse Plastic?", except it'll be insanely slow and unintuitive to install. Marketing... bleh.

Just got mine installed. As others have mentioned very easy with clear instructions.
I have the pinsound board with the reorchestration and it works with that in case it has not been mentioned before.
Thanks for making a great mod and with all the parts and time that it took to put everything together hard to see you making much of a profit

When do the new brackets get shipped? No big deal just wondering if the bracket on the one coming my way will require a drilled hole or not. Thanks

Quoted from djsolzs:

Lead times on new brackets are still 4 weeks out. You can technically make the existing bracket work, you just have to slide it out a bit on the left side to avoid contact with the lamp socket, which will seat your display a bit farther back. You'd want to set your right side bracket to match. We're also going to ship larger 3/4" #10 screws in case the existing mounting holes are stripped.

These types of adjustments are why the "playfield side" of the brackets are slotted.
