Anyone have any leads on translites without going to Australia? Mine is cracked and brittle.

For anyone who hasn't yet installed the Ultimarc video amplifier and does not want to hack up their existing video cable, I found that getting the "VGA Breakout Cable" (http://www.ultimarc.com/store/section.php?xSec=11) simplifies the operation by providing a compatible Wells Gardner connector - just clip off the VGA end of the breakout cable, strip the wires, and connect to the video amplifier screw-down terminals.

For those who are lazy, like me, this reduced the whole operation down to 20 minutes whereas constructing a new monitor connector might have taken me more than 30 minutes alone.

None of this helps Ducksan owners, though.

For anyone looking for a translite, I found that pbresource.com and user name "wellarmed" on Pinside have translites. I purchased mine from "wellarmed" and it looks great - big thanks!

I installed a 6.5" car woofer and I am not wanting for any more bass. I am sure that an external sub would be even better, but I am more than happy with the result from an outlay of $15.

I replaced all three speakers as follows: http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pinball-2000-speaker-upgrade

As one of the very few stereo sound pinball machines, I felt obligated to upgrade the speakers. For $35, the improvement was significant.

Different strokes for different folks. I normally install LEDs in all my machines. But the light fading effects on RFM are so awesome with the most recent software that I actually ripped out the LEDs and reinstalled incandescent bulbs.

Speaking of lighting, here's another quick and easy mod: replace the existing fluorescent bulb behind the translite with a warm-white bulb from your local hardware store (I purchased a Philips). You need a "T8" 18-inch tube.

The translite has lots of red and a warm white bulb makes the reds deeper in tone. You could also get a warming tube (http://www.pinballpal.com/warming/), but I think a warm white bulb gets 50% of the benefit with less hassle.

Quoted from dendoc:

Can anyone tell me the best rivet to place a new ramp flap on the bracket with? Old one had a split, new one ready to go, but not sure what size to use.

Quoted from Matt_Rasmussen:

So much better than AFM, how so?

I'm not saying I agree or disagree, but how about this: RFM has basically the same shot layout but with more humor, better graphics, more modes, better wizard, more player controls, and better sound. Whether that adds up to a superior package is up to the player to decide.

Quoted from snaroff:

...the sounds are critical (and totally make the game).

I completely agree. For those with the means a full amplifier and speaker replacement is the way to go. For those with more limited budgets, at least replace the speakers for $35. I found the improvement to be substantial over the stock speakers that were clearly past their prime, which were never that good even in their prime.

AFM vs RFM is like pinball's equivalent of Camaro vs. Mustang.

Quoted from MAJRob:

Drop target fixed, switch just needed adjusted. That damn credit dot irks me though! I understand it is from the LEDs, I just wish there was a workaround.

Go back to incandescent bulbs. I did that and couldnt believe how much better the light show was. I normally LED most of my pins, but RFM was the first pin I owned where I yanked out every LED.
