No, I'm not eagerly checking my mailbox every day. You must have me confused with someone else

They are going really well and should I start shipping out by the 2nd week of November. The assembly line is filled with them and it’s gokng very smooth. I am excited for you to get them installed.

Installed my gold mirror blades and all brass on original medieval madness along with reinstalling pin stadiums with invisi shield.

What is the function option for and how do you shut it off ?

#3258 1 year ago

I got a Nascar pin the other day. What a fun game! I swapped out the colored LEDs in the GI with white and then installed my Pinstadium kit. What a huge difference for sure.

I needed to remove the two layers of clear plastics that were above the shooter lane due to the crazy Pinstadium reflections. Was especially bad there because the two levels of clear plastic caused a wild wavy pattern to the reflections that were very distracting. I also covered the bottom 3" of the left side Pinstadium strip since that reflected off the large plastic that covers the raceway magnets. Other than those modifications, Nascar/Grand Prix/Dale Jr is a great candidate for Pinstadium.

Functions is for when you want to run color changing patterns to the GI. To disable you simply go back to the color wheel and move to a setting you like. The function patterns will stop at that time.

I like your app color settings for the GI, it really brings out the artwork. Did you hook up the UV+Glow to the back right flasher on the backboard? That's the best one I have found so far as it does extremely well when Blackwater Multiball starts!

Yes, back right flasher after reading a post that chuckwurt had posted. He is the "Hand of the King" IMO.

If you out it in the one I suggested then that is the one chuckwurt later recommended to me. You have it correct. But again it’s all personal preference.

I have a few requests for some before and afters if Dialed In. This results are excellent but what really shines with the JJP machine is how well they integrate GI controls. Combine that with the Pin Stadiums and you are in for quite the show!

I had Pinstadium installed in Terminator 2, then Starship Troopers before moving it over to Nascar. Here's a Starship Troopers pic showing most of the upper GI out and still incandescent bulbs everywhere but the lower 1/3 of the playfield. Pinstadium came in handy to light up the playfield until I had a chance to do a full tear down shop job.

I wanted to let you know all know that that Invisi-Shield installation instructions have been updated to the website:

Invisi-Shield installation instructions:

Peel off the adhesive back and then align the Invisi-Shield to the edge of the Pin Stadium light bar starting at the front (near the flippers). Make sure to have good lighting so that you can see the alignment and leave a 1/16″ width gap between the Invisi-Shields and the Pin Stadium light bar.

Install them while the light bars are installed in the pinball machine is best. Now you are Stealth!!

Yes, in this picture the top machine Dialed In has them installed and The Hobbit does not. Here is a video showing them on IMDN:

Working on the Orion's Belt getting them ready for shipping which looks to be the first 1/2 of November. In preparation I am working on flasher location diagrams to help show everyone how many options you have with your machines. So excited to get these into your machines. Here is a DeadPool diagram of the flashers(12 total), but of course you can trigger off the shaker and other bulbs too. Wow this is going to be cool!!

Also the new Deadpool update .95 has a even better light show improvement and the Orion's Belt just went up a whole new level with it too. Thank you Stern!

This picture is location accurate too based upon the real playfield layout.

This will help those of you to visualize the locations much better of course.

There are a lot of updates being made to the website and currently just finished the additional sections of instructions to make them even clearer and easier to understand. This one shows the proper mounting of the cable clamps for the Phantom Cables. Generally the highest point to on the backboard is best in most cases where this is no obstruction and about a 1/4"-1/2" from the edge to make sure it clears the playfield track when raised. If you use this image as a reference you should be golden!

Ok this is an Observation not meant as a criticism but most times your illustrations to Simplify are more confusing then the problem? Lol. What in this picture represents 1’ 4” of position? I’m still trying to figure out your last animated robot instruction for the Pinstadium shields. For me, a simple high res non marketing image of the product mounted on a game is the Best/simplest how to you could ask for! Or I could just be completely overlooking the obvious.

Unfortunately I have to agree. I can't make heads or tails of this diagram - no idea what I am looking at. Its a clip somewhere stuck to a corner of a piece of wood somewhere? A simple real-world picture would be much more helpful to see the context. This is why I still have not used any of my clip mounts, for any of the Pinstadiums I have. I have no idea where the best place is to use them.

Whew thought I was loosing it. I have an engineering degree but missed the art classes. Consider something more “average Joe” as most people don’t speak PinStadi-art. A simple cabinet image (no robots) with an arrow that says “place here”!

Not to pile on, but TRUTH! I run a company that creates online training, and the robot-ware posing as training / installation guides make my head want to explode. Scott seems nice and helpful enough, but too often he can't get out of his own way. So much hyperbole, so many robots, and near-constant cheesy marketing.

Scott, I'm not trying to be a dick, but I think EVERYONE would be a lot happier if you could tone it down a notch. Install guides don't need robots and weird special effects. Everything else doesn't need to be "Hurry before they sell out!" Which is actually standard language on your website, by the way. No offense, but it comes off like a used car salesman asking everyone "What do I need to do to get you into this PinStadium...TODAY?!?" You have a high-end product. You don't need to come off like you're trying so hard. Just some friendly advice.

#3284 1 year ago

Seems pretty clear to me. Mount them just below the top of the backboard approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the sides.

Thanks! Sorry there was a typo on that and it is 1/4"-1/2" gap from the top of the playfield backboard. These are a work in progress and just posting them up here as it's part of a flow and video tutorial enhancement walkthroughs that should come together in a much cleaner fashion and along with some clear descriptions too. I welcome the input and appreciate the feedback as always too. Very helpful for sure!

Haha, yes it's going to be part of the website and will be clearly stated and laid out so it makes sense when all of the pieces are done. Promise!

#3287 1 year ago

This is one of the most important parts of the install, making sure you have the GI and Flashers cables in the correct locations.

All good Scott you Know we love and appreciate your product. Just know one of the things we love Most is the Simplicity of your product!! KISS as they say. Just keep marketing separate from tutorial instruction. Instructions are for people that understood your marketing so no further flare is needed. Keep lighting the games and we will follow.

Your awesome and it's always nice to hear get a piece of your creative mind and ideas. The thread just isn't the same without you yelobird !! It was nice talking with you and hanging out briefly at the show with you too. Appreciate all of your help/advice!

Speaking of which.....

Some great things in the works and one of the most requested add-ons for your existing Pin Stadiums coming soon! No worries either, if you already own a set you can add this to them too.

#3294 1 year ago

I've been late to the Pinstadium Party, but finally installed a set on my Iron Maiden Premium (before/after photos). Difference is pretty dramatic. Iron Maiden is woefully void of spot lights near the slings or middle of the PF. The stripping effect on the metal ramps is a little annoying, but not a big deal for me (guess the "photon merger" will help with this?).

Over the years, I've solved poor GI lighting with PinballBulbs Double Spotlight kits ($25 each). Pinstadium lights are a more complete, but costly solution to solving the PF lighting the problem. The product with all the bells and whistles is $279.90 (GI module, UV+Glow flasher color, Invisi-Shield). From a packaging perspective, I'd like fewer choices...the GI module is required and I think the Invisible-Shield should be built-in (one less thing to install). The choices add complexity to the buying experience and made me feel like I was getting "nickeled and dimed".

The photos speak for themselves, and to be honest, the game looks even better in person. I've purchased HD glass for some of my games and I've always been on the fence about value. Sure, HD glass is an improvement, but the difference for me isn't dramatic (which is kind of disappointing at $300 a sheet). For me, the Pinstadium lights are a dramatic improvement. My Iron Maiden "stock" glass seems to disappear with the Pinstadium lighting...didn't expect this "feature".

In any event, will install Pinstadium on my Dialed In later today! Since it has HD glass, it will be interesting to see the difference...

Thanks to Scott for his excellent product & support!

Does that Maiden have the Invisishields on them?

#3296 1 year ago

Invisishields are great - def worth it. At this point, they should come standard.

Quoted from PoMC:

Yes.

#3298 1 year ago

What do those shields do? I can still see the crazy reflections on the ramps and plastics.

#3299 1 year ago

They block the lights from being seen if you're on the side of the machine. They don't block the striping although it looks like Scott is going to release something to prevent the pinstripes soon!

#3300 1 year ago
Quoted from snaroff:

My Iron Maiden "stock" glass seems to disappear with the Pinstadium lighting...didn't expect this "feature".

So true. It is a huge benefit that I feel is often overlooked.

I put PDI glass on a couple of my games and liked how it got rid of reflections so much that I was planning on eventually getting it for all of them. However, after installing Pinstadiums with standard glass, the reflections are also gone and I no longer feel any need for the expensive glass. So in effect...Scott is saving me money.
