I am bench testing this Hyperspace lighting effects for a Star Wars LE back glass and I would like to see if there's any interest for this mod.... I made 2 videos and it will still use the machine's normal backlighting and it will just add the effect of the hyperspace to it.

Please let me know what you think,

I think somebody needs to sell me their LE translite so I can pick this up haha. Very cool Steve!

#3 2 years ago

Yeah I want one of those in a swap box!

#4 2 years ago

Hopefully tomorrow I'll have it installed in the machine and I'll make another video....

More Star Wars mods are coming very soon, including powder coating

Count me in steave!!!

#7 2 years ago

Wow, is that gonna switch off the stock lights and do this during certain modes? Sick.

#8 2 years ago

I will be posting some pictures and videos of this machine tomorrow. I am adding a bunch of upgrades to it and would like to finish it before posting any pictures of this Pinball Refinery Edition of a Star Wars LE.

Hang in there,

That's pretty cool and based on your post, will get even better. Almost makes me like the LE over the Premium.

#10 2 years ago

I’ll take one also please

#11 2 years ago

Tomorrow was yesterday let's go!!!

#12 2 years ago

I know... I know..

Here's a video of the backbox inside in the machine. I'm working on getting brighter LEDs and more of a stream trailer lighting effects..I should have them by next week. I'll make another one and post a video of that version. Also check out the speaker lighting effects.

I want to get the right look for this backbox that it deserves.

Actually... I made these speaker lighting for this SWLE... I will be offering them as well when I have everything finalized.

Also, I've been making speaker lighting effects for years...

My bad. I thought they were the same ones I have. Sorry.
The more recent version of the backbox effect looks less dramatic than the first. Are the effects going to vary throughout the game? You just keep teasing us!

#21 2 years ago

Well they are less dramatic because the machine's GI lights... This is why I'm going to be trying some brighter ones and build another one...

Currently they will be on all the time.

Seems a strange coincidence that you starting making Speaker Light Kits like that AFTER I did. It seems you had been making them completely differently before then. SEE ATTACHMENTS.

Yes...after you copied them from me...and here we are again.

As illustrated in the pictures above... you have been making them for SPIKE 2 games for almost a year. So why the sudden change to the better looking "full grill lighting" style?

#24 2 years ago

Well... my customer required it this way in his SWLE, so I made it for him. I get my mods copied all the time and don't say anything. I'm not here to cause drama just give options.

Damn dude. Unless you have a copyright on these, you aren’t impressing me. I’ve dealt with Steve, and he’s an upstanding guy. You’re coming off as whining about competition.

I have given more thought to my post and have had a change of heart. Doug has been there for a long time with his speaker lights and has made a name for himself and spent considerable time developing these. To come along and steal someone’s idea is sort of douchey. I had he same feeling with the knockoff pinstadium lights Steve “made” that again is someone’s hard work (Scott) Small hobby when you boil it down. Money is not everything, integrity as has been discussed in the other thread is a huge part. A lot of mods that Steve made could have been copied but people showed respect. I guess it should go both ways.

Ok putting the old soap box away.

What is your price going to be on this "option"? Are you including acrylic design "options" too or are you going to attempt to order the designs from me again?

Ok, please stop. You aren’t interested in buying...we all know that. Move on to another thread.

I'm done posting about "his" speaker light kit "option" on this thread. I will probably make a standalone thread about that.

As for the hyperspace mod...I think it looks like a good idea. I actually sent a link to this thread to my friend that has a SW: LE last night.

#30 2 years ago

If there are no copyrights, trademarks, or patents being infringed, stop whining. Someone maybe copied someone; whoopee. It's called competition.

Here is the final version of my Star Wars LE Hyperspace back box lighting... It is on all the time and it a great effect to this translite.

I will have them available to order soon on my website and I will post a link on this thread as well.

Thanks,

i like the effect, but it goes on too long
should be zip zip and then back to steady

#33 2 years ago

I’m sure there are things going on I wouldn’t be able to figure out, but I like the stars-zipping-past effect in the first video better. I am also wondering about play field glass reflection if it will be on all the time, I have the back glass lights set to dim pretty low during gameplay.

#34 2 years ago

Looks awesome, if I had an LE I'd be all over this.

One Nitpick: the light effect going thru Chewie's head is distracting. You can barely see the one thru Han, but the Chewie one caught my eye immediately. A piece of black electric tape in the right place would solve that....

Well... I can do either versions... Personally I like the second version, but I can do both. I have not changed the factory settings in the back glass.. If you were to dim it the effect would be better.

This effect should be during hyperspace only. Is there any way to do that? 'Always on' would be a bit to much and losing impact in my eyes.

If you can limit it to show only during hyperspace ramp activation (by triggering it with the 2nd magnet) I'm in.
