This is going to be incredible

#554 5 months ago

UPDATE!!!
Did somebody say beacons? Well the beacons are here and ready

20220301_084311 (resized).jpg
#555 5 months ago

UPDATE 2!!!!

Another update in the same day you say, the answer is yes
New optional feature added to the apron & beacon mod, BEACONS IN ATTRACT MODE!!!!!!
Enjoy!

Now that's a buttload of beacons!

Are the beacons led bulbs?

#560 5 months ago
Quoted from rockrand:

Are the beacons led bulbs?

The beacons do not have bulbs but consist of 60 SMD LEDs with over a 50,000-hour lifespan. Hate to break it to you, but you'll have to have these things on for 5.7 years constantly to even approach end of life. Low power consumption is key here also. Most importantly, they look great!!! In my opinion, brightness is absolutely perfect contrast for the game... I wouldn't want it any brighter or any dimmer.

#561 5 months ago

Awesome work guys, love the attract mode. It's just enough that it isn't a distraction or annoyance. Brilliant!

Attract mode you say!!! Can you create a repel mode? All red with screams or something when people touch it? I don't want other people to play my game. It's mine. ALL MINE!

#563 5 months ago

WE have got to be getting close now.. beacons in hand... aprons at powder coaters.. yes, yes, yes.. sooooon my precious.

#564 5 months ago

I say this mod should easily win whatever pinball awards that are handed out for such things.

Quoted from ezeltmann:

The " Team" agrees.

The good thing about these crazy times and shipping issues, parts issues, etc etc etc is it's given us time to really tweak and improve every part of his MOD.

if it was the normal world we would be on version 5 by now....lol.

Some might get this before your machines.

Question on the apron lighting, will it be on consistently during play? I find the PF is pretty dark, curious if this will help if it's lit all the time?

Quoted from JDub03:

THIS! I'm hoping for the same. Even a dim blue or greenish hue would be helpful down around the flippers. I get that the low lighting sets the mood, but this is just a bit TOO dark!

Edit: Now that I think about it, a green constant light if you pick Alien and blue light if you pick Aliens would be excellent. Then interactive as modes/mulitballs come into play.

Yes... the blade LEDs light during gameplay. Even better, you have full control over the color and intensity of the blades during gameplay and attract mode.

Windows app via USB cable.

thank you!! stoked!

#574 5 months ago
Quoted from Baggerman:

QQ for the mod makers... I am assuming an external power supply is going to drive the boards, apron and beacons for the mod? We have discussed the mod functions, but not the power. I know my Alien does not have a Service Outlet so i need to get creative for external power if that is the case.

Baggerman - I finally installed the LED strip in my back box with an external power supply. I made a quick and dirty video that explains how I did it:

A couple people strongly pointed out that the AC wire colors were backwards and insisted people would kill themselves because of it. They also informed me that when I do electronics videos, I need to add disclaimers because people have a tendency to blow themselves up by following YouTube videos. I guess I wasn't thinking of that.

Here is a new video of how to "properly" add backbox lighting to your Alien Pinball Brothers machine:

Great video my friend, this should help a lot of people to safely get 12v power for their mods.

Did brad do electronics (like in his videos) on this mod?! And nobody insisted on killing themselves or blowing shit up? Strong work! And to think just 9 months ago you guys were arguing like children about stealing each other's pictures of boats! Go little rock stars!

Dee-Bow I sent you a private message a couple days ago apologizing to you and asking if we could have a truce.

I am testing the mod and it is AWESOME!!!!

And no... I haven't blown myself up yet. Never been shocked by the 20,000 volts in any CRT tube I've worked on yet either.
That additional backlight on the Alien logo makes a HUGE difference.

As for you, Dee-Bow ... I hope you eventually become as excited about this mod as we are.

This mod is not for me, seems like it floods out the bottom half of the playfield with the bright LEDs in there. (Same with pinstadiums on others.) But as long as you enjoy working on it, and the early adopters all enjoy it... then that's all that matters. Good luck with it. *also, nothing personal and i was sincere when i mentioned you guys were not even acquainted a few months ago and now taking on a project of this stature!

Are you referring to the apron portion? LED color, etc is all adjustable, and if brightness isn't currently, I'm sure it can be added fairly easily since part of the time it is acting as a strobe.

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

This mod is not for me,

if this mod isn't for you then why bother posting in this thread? I am genuinely intrigued.

Also you are correct in saying the "team" working on this mod didn't even know each other a few months ago, but it just goes to show that this community can bring people together to work on a project that will benefit more than themselves. I am really happy now that I get to call 3 more people my friends and all because we came together here to create something special for fellow owners of the PB Alien.
I wish there was an option to upvote and downvote your post at the same time because that's how it made me feel

Keep playing pinball, that's what brings us together!

That is correct, Zablon ... The intensity and color can be fully controlled by you. Once you select the color you want, just slide the slider shown up and down to change the brightness of that color. You can do it for all LEDs, including the ALIEN logo.

Quoted from Red_Devils:

if this mod isn't for you then why bother posting in this thread? I am genuinely intrigued.

I've been in on this game since 2016. I can't wait to somehow finally own one. This mod is intriguing to me for a number of reasons. The original designer backed out in fear of legal reasons & you guys marched on without him. Do you not fear Fox or PB coming at ya for copying infringement? Or has that been properly dealt with? I also wonder if PB is going to honor their stellar warranty service if they know this is on the game, considering you have tampered with the wiring.. man, i don't want to sound like a debbie downer! But that's what i wonder about!(i'm just a drywallogist!) I should definitely find something better to worry about. But lots of good people have sent you guys some serious amount of $$$ if you add up that list! hope it works out for all of them!

So is this the likely design minus the limited edition and nostromo tag?

Honestly man, we don’t want to come here and read these combative comments every day. If you don’t want the mod, fine. No need to come here and crap on these guys project and continue to beat a dead horse, though..

The man's right. Installing any mod on a Stern or new machine from any pinball company can potentially void your warranty. I spoke with PB to confirm this. It is really common sense... they can't be supporting 3rd-party mods on their machines.

This has been discussed countless times before. My best advice is that if a person wants to mod their machine and wants their warranty to be honored for its full duration, they should wait until after the warranty expires before installing any mods.

The pictures I'm posting are of a prototype apron. You can read historical posts for details on that. I'm just using it for testing.

I didn't say he wasn't right. By the letter of the law, you are correct and we all know that. Mods to our games are nothing new, though, and that waan't the point I was making.

If you aren't interested in a mod, fine. Why spend time and energy criticizing or questionning one you have no interest in, though? Just move on rather than trying to put it down and dampen the excitement of those that do like one and are excited about it? Seems unnecessary to me but I digress.

Can’t wait to get this mod. Pricey but wow the work involved, I saw it and it made me go out and buy the game.

I kid you not (maybe I need help lol) Managed to secure an LV in the last 48 Hrs and now i find out they have just arrived Sydney docks. Excellent timing, not so much with my Fathom remake which I have now decide to let go in favour of ALIEN !!!

Let me know Marc if I can help in any way.

Utesichiban - When I said "The man's right," I meant YOU were right. I know, that wasn't clear at all, but it was late. If a person doesn't want the mod and doesn't even have a machine, no reason to go out of their way to find fault and criticize.

PB is aware that people mod their machines... but they have to reserve the right to void warranties. As an FYI, when PB was helping me with my machine last year, they saw I had the motion tracker mod installed and mentioned that "technically that can void your warranty"... which I totally understand and agree with. I removed it for all future troubleshooting and have been totally honest and open about what mods I've had on my machine any time I utilized their support. The warranty on my machine is actually long past, yet PB still continues to help me with some long-standing issues. Even after I have offered to pay for parts on several occasions, PB continued to help me out by sending me parts at no cost. Now that is some pretty darn nice service that I don't think you'd ever see from Stern.

By the way, things are working great on my machine now. My long-standing issues were caused by an early version of playfield board 6, it seems. Being an early adopter on this machine has actually been pretty fun for me.

I also want to give kudos to PB and Cato especially. Every part that has failed was quickly sent to me in warranty and out of warranty. I was just sent 3 new boards that Cato thought needed replacing to fix a couple of issues. As an early adopter I am very pleased with the game and the support you get from this company.
