Many have asked about the GI and UV+Glow bulb connections for Iron Maiden LE (IMDE LE). So I will post them up here as there are massive amounts of these being sold for this game. It will be easier for me to post the locations on this thread.

Hello, does anybody have suggestions on where to hook up pinstadium flashers on TOTAN? Thank you!!!

Quoted from Jimmyhonda:

That’s a really good question. I sold mine a while back and don’t remember which one for sure (very early prototype stages of Pin Stadium). However I just watched a Bowen video for that last 15 minutes and found two flashers that didn’t seem to go off too often since that machine has tons of flashers and tons of flashing.

One is the kickout flasher for the Bizarre and the other is behind the left corner of the right ramps after it crosses over. Try those and see. Please report back if you can and let us know what you decide as I am sure it will help other TOTAN owners. Thanks. I put red arrows to the suggested locations.

I hope this helps.

I just used the flasher on the right side of the playfield. Many flashers will flash in a sequence that includes all flashers. The right side flasher rarely flashes by itself. Not too much flash, but still enough for a good effect

#2058 88 days ago

Thank you for suggestions! Btw, just hooked up Pinstadium’s to my LOTR. Looks awesome! Thanks for the great customer service Scott!

Thanks. Can you put an arrow on where you hooked it up to?

#2060 88 days ago

Trying to figure out where you can hook your GI lighting to on Spider-Man pinball machine, right now we have it hooked up to a white spider arrow and we noticed that when you get to Battle Royal mode the pin Stadiums lights don’t turn off like the spider arrow light does, Does any one have any advise on where to connect the GI alligator clips for SM so it works with the mode, Thanks!!!

#2061 88 days ago

Just installed Pinstadium’s on my TOM. My TOM has a super bright topper, so it was difficult to even play because of the glare. As you can see in the pictures that the glare is almost completely gone and you can see the playfield so much better.

How them invis-shields coming along?

#2063 88 days ago
Quoted from FlippyD:

How them invis-shields coming along?

Great and they will be shipping next month. I am fine tuning them as we speak and looking really good!

#2064 87 days ago

Also a very interesting observation that I might point out that I have seen for sometime but not really mentioned. As we all know the Pin Stadiums heavily reduce and in many cases removed glare and reflection off the glass.

Adding anti glare glass helps, however standing up in front of Iron Maiden LE with the Stern HD glass (Pin Stadiums off) I noticed that there was still a strong reflection. So I removed the glass to find that that even with that glass that the glare was coming off of highly polished shiny playfield. This means that even then the glass does not help (although it did do it’s intended job of assisting with the glass reflection), and the only thing removed it was firing up the Pin Stadiums and it was completely gone!

The alternative would be to have an old dull playfield or anti-glare covering on it, but who wants playfield like that?

Just food for thought that there is yet another layer of glare to contend with.

#2065 87 days ago

Wow, I just did Jedi Multiball on Star Wars with the UV glow and the effect was amazing. I’ve done the Jedi multi ball a few months back, and I think it was when I had the pin stadiums but I don’t remember it looking this cool, so I am thinking Dwight updated the light show in the latest versions to make better use the flashers. I was screaming for my wife to come check it out and she just missed it. Not sure when I’ll have another great game like that again. Just wow!

You know you may be right as Dwight bought a set of Pin Stadiums with the UV+Glow for his Star Wars LE a couple months back because he loved them on a customer’s machine he saw. I would not be surprised if he dialed the code in specifically for them actually. I just updated the code to SW too and I need to get the Jedi Mulitball now. Thanks for posting this!!

This could get interesting.... awesome!!

#2067 87 days ago

What is a good hook up for the GI and flashers on a capcom Pinball Magic?

Thanks

This is what I have seen so far on this:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/new-pin-stadium-lights-official-announcement?tq=Pinball+magic&tu

You could trigger from a flasher in the backbox if you can find one. That would work.

The short answer is there isn't one. Because of the way the GI and Flashers are matrixed in Capcom games they will keep the PS kit on all the time, this is fine for the main but not for the flasher. I have mine setup to be on with the game and no flasher. LEDOCD would probably resolve this but I can't say for certain that it does.

Is there a motor we could trigger off or magnet?

#2073 87 days ago
Quoted from pinstadium:

Might work with the magic wand magnet coil, never really thought about that. Might be cool for the flasher, I'll try it tonight or tomorrow night and let you know. Remind me what the max voltage is you can put on the trigger circuit? I tried a bunch of (relatively) simple ways to get the GI integration working using diodes, caps, RC circuits, etc. but the lamps are always being pulsed, even when off so nothing I tried worked. It's okay though because the game is SO dark normally that I still consider the PS kits a must have for it unless you have LEDOCD and a bright GI bulbs installed.

#2074 87 days ago

Recently bought a game with pinstadiums and as I expected, for these older ones (AFM) - they look really good. UV option on it - very impressed. Question though is I want to install mirror blades but the base magnet covers a part of the side wall.

How do you install mirrors properly AND use pinstadium lights?

#2075 87 days ago

Is it better to order one without the GI upgrade module and flasher. Just the basic for PM?

In my case to install both you simply use the mirror blade as the magnet surface. You don’t need the additional strip magnet for install.

Awesome glad you have them on AFM, they work well with it. You can try the method yelobird mentioned as some of the mirrors have real metal and the Magna-Mounts will work on that. If not you can just order new ones and pull the old off.

#2078 87 days ago
Quoted from shlockdoc:

Technically you would would still need them as the Universal Power uses the service port so they need to turn them n and off with the machine still via the GI Module signal sensing a GI bulb and also the UV+Glow flasher feature l is dependent on the GI Module circuitry in order to trigger.

So if the mirror doesn’t hold them the other option is to put the base (sticky part) on the top of the mirror itself? Any pics of what this looks like? Also I really want to put a pair on my new Iron Maiden as they need them. Any new method to prevent the zebra stripes on the ramps? If not I might still order to see if I can stomach them and if not just return. Would want to make sure that’s an option first

#2080 87 days ago

Just installed on Iron Maiden LE. Hooked UV/Flasher to the lightning bolt flasher near the center of the playfield. Looks great. Thanks.

#2081 87 days ago

Recently pikd up a wh2o... any recommendations for uv flasher hookup?

Not even sure if the uv flasher would really enhance the game since its mostly a blue theme instead of purple... mayb instead of uv flashers they can b replaced w blue flashers instead???

If your mirror blades have real metal then it should work, if not then you would remove the old Magna-Mount and then order a new set since they don’t bond well once removed.

You won’t see them as the light bars will cover them.

They look really great on Iron Maiden and you will definitely get the ramp accent lights reflection. It’s not bright or blinding. They look exactly like they would in the video.

I’m glad you got them installed and I have not yet tried the lighting bolt flasher. So far I have had them on the flasher above the Pharoah target and they look great there. I will try them on the lighting bolt also! Thank you for your order and enjoy that amazing game!!

The way the UV+Glow flasher color reacts with WH20 is surprisingly different. It’s more of a whitish blue color than most other games due to the colors in it. I would suggest trying it and see what you think.

#2086 86 days ago

I don’t have any footage of Whitewater yet but plan to do a video of it soon.

What wavelength are the LEDs you're using for the UV+Glow? Are they less than 400nm? I don't see anything on your website about it...

#2088 86 days ago

I found a video. Here they are with blue:

#2089 86 days ago

Here is where I triggered the flasher on it. Back right flasher on the backboard.

#2090 86 days ago

What an improvement! Guardians isn’t exactly the darkest playfield to begin with, but it makes a world of difference having this set on! Thanks Scott! Looking forward to the add on

Also adding a pic with the UV Glow, wow!

LEDOCD does resolve this. You still can't hook up to a flasher but you can hook it up to a GI bulb. I hooked mine up to the center light of the stage and it worked great!
