The guys at Buffalo and STDM convinced me to buy a couple sets of PinStadium last month. One for my AFMr and one for my NGG. On both sets, I ordered the UV+Glow and the GI Plug-In. Yes, those upgrades will currently add about $110 to your order, but they are pretty awesome in person.
The AFMr install has been a bit more of a challenge since its a newer machine and the install documentation at the time of this posting is still developing.
I'll post finished pics of AFMr hopefully later this week.
This is my honest unbiased take so far...
Scott at PinStadium has been incredible at giving me his very best customer service. This is rare nowadays, so I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I absolutely will be buying additional kits as I add to my collection in 2018. Scott spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with me guiding me through the installation process on the AFMr. He made phone calls to Planetary on my behalf to get the right information and it was quite enjoyable listening to him share his passion about pinball and his product. Scott is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you're satisfied...so BUY with CONFIDENCE.
PinStadium is the real deal. It's difficult to capture via an iPhone, but I'll post what I can. Prior to installing PinStadium, I couldn't see the wheel awards the machine wants to award as you progress through the holes. The entire center of the playfield which lay in darkness before is now visible. The phone app allows owners to choose from colors of encompassing the entire color spectrum, the ability to save user defined colors, choose preset color pattern swells (including flashers), and audio responsive color patterns reactive to the audio collected from the phone's microphone. You can take a picture of a dominate color on your machine to have the lights match and even program scenes/groups between multiple machines. It's incredible.
Now, I'll just have to figure out how to train myself to remember to remove the light bars from their magnetic mounts prior to raising the playfield for under-the-hood work. Let me stress...no joke...its very 'IMPORTANT' to slow down and pay attention any time you lift the glass...the lights are delicate and subject to damage if you're not careful.
I took the glass off for these pics. I have CoinTaker LED's throughout the machine, so I put the machine in test so the LED's weren't in attract mode giving a false difference in visuals. I also have CoinTaker mirror blades installed. The UV flashers going off during the exciting parts of play really adds to the sensory enjoyment.
