Quoted from pintechev:

I fixed this for a friend of mine. Make sure that the optos on the ramp are aligned and that there's nothing blocking the IR beam. In his case, the chase lights had become unglued and were triggering the optos.

Thanks, i'll have a look - am I right in saying both IR beams need to be crossed to score a warp shot? In this case would both beams need to be broken for this to be the issue?

It’s alwsys a pair; a transmitter and a receiver. If they cannot see each other, the switch is closed.

Quoted from Jarbyjibbo:

I just sold my ST and have some extra mods for sale if anyone is interested. Green laser upgrade, the black out mod that makes the PF go 50% or total dark during the laser show, and the light up BOP mod.

Pm me if you're interested.

Only thing not spoken for is the blackout mod fyi.

LCD requests! here is a quick and dirty video of the ColorDMD LCD on HIRES, I might have to lower the brightness so it shows more detail the iPhone camera can't pick up in this video, looks much better in person.

#6205 2 years ago

Looks good! I'd like to see the Vengeance Multiball start if you get a chance to do more video.

I have plenty of stock of the Green Laser (Red and Blue too). I also have my version of the Blackout mod which will allow any percentage of the GI to be set in both modes.

I am no longer waitlisting for the Stern KBOP as the ships are becoming more and more rare (hence more expensive). Once I am out of stock of the WingLEDs; I don't plan on restocking. If anyone is interested in the Stern KBOP; you need to PM or email me ASAP.

#6207 2 years ago
Quoted from pintechev:

Thanks, what I meant was - there is one beam (transmitter and receiver) halfway up the ramp, then there is another beam (transmitter and receiver) further up the ramp behind the back box. And i assume both these beams would need to be affected to score faulty warps. If this is the case re the beams.

I'll check re-seating all optos as recommended also. Thanks again

If you could put some video up of DOTS XL that would be great, I am leaning towards the LED at the moment, I don't like the Hi Res look on most games but it would be good to see some DOTS XL.

I have never noticed the Gorn at the march scene before, that's awesome. I need to pay more attention I have only ever seen Kirk with 2 girls.

Having seen the LCD video and how far back the screen has to sit to fit and that light gap, I'm feeling pretty good about my LED. The smoothing doesn't do much for me either.

Have you seen Carol Marcus? "Would you please turn around?" Maybe her and the twins don't show up in family mode or something?

I agree, I'm not a huge fan of the high res look at all, DOTS XL is meant to be the best I keep hearing, and have seen videos of different machines with DOTS XL that look spot on. Will see if I can upload a video once installed.

This color dmd video is filming an LCD display in DOTS XL. Looks awesome! I don't like high res either so will likely stick to dots XL.

its only a issue b/c of the angle of my video, but I added some foam, since I am using a TUBE LED as the backlight in the box, its really bright. Since the foam its fine now. I don't have a camera holder. I have seen most the tier I & II's, Yes I seen Carol Marcus, I tried DOTSXL its ok. Also from playing from the buttons you can't tell the depth, nor can you see anything to the side of the screen.

Thanks for mentioning this, with all the bitching about the LCD I was getting worried I bought the wrong one for my ST (First ColorDMD for me as I love ST, and said "screw it" instead of trying to justify spending $400+ to myself on a dmd)

I have both the LED and LCD now. Comparing the two on ST the LCD with XL dots is the best looking.

Thanks bruce great find on that video, watching them back to back now to see which I prefer.

Quoted from J85M:

Just remember that the pf lighting will make the blacks of the LED look gray not black. I have an LCD on my Met and an LED right next to it on my T3 and it's night and day difference. LCD all day long. I have a Bent Plastic on T3 and that blocks about 75% of the pf light from hitting the LED so now the bottom 75% is black and the top 25% is gray. Pisses me off every time I look at it.

Well I had a fully modded ST Premium that I sold about a year ago just because I was offered $7500 for it and wanted to buy a TWD. I’ve really missed that pin and have gone through a Metallica and an Iron Man VE since then. I have just sold my MMR LE to fund a NIB ST Premium I found and can’t wait to get it and start playing it again. I really missed her! On a side note, I ordered over $800 worth of mods today. I’m hoping to find an Aurich translight & kit to add to the mods. Anybody have an extra? I’m so happy to be re-joining the club!

Good deal! I figured some foam would fix the issue. The gap is just a side effect of having to use those stand-offs. Nothing to be done short of cutting that stud off of the speaker panel. I debated which display to get and was not saying my choice is better than yours, just saying I am good with my selection, since I wouldn't use the smoothing and prefer the LED installation.

Haha, I just noticed you said you hadn't noticed the Gorn, sorry, read that wrong.

Anyways, the video was still much appreciated. If I thought it looked awesome I'd have been swiping my LCD out of TZ pronto.

lol, no I see Gorn too much, it was J85M above.

I have an LED in my Harley, I can always swap it out. For easiest install and factory look, the LED no doubt.

Colordmd + stle question.

I've just installed mine but there is no grounding strap to attach to the colordmd to?

There wasn't one on the original dmd when I removed it just one attached to the right speaker.

Just concerned that I should have one attached.

There should be an extra cable in your Color DMD box. Just attach it from one of the DMD mounting screws to the ground connection.

Last one I received had a cable in that pack.

It's just like the ground cable on your speakers. I think really any copper ground wire will do.

3 days new to a ST LE, and have had several issues so far...rather frustrating. Had a laser question...mine seems VERY dim, as in far dimmer than the one I played in a rather bright room in the Orlando airport. This pic is in a completely dark room, only light is from the game. You can barely see the laser on the flipper, much less on the game. Is this correct?

Sorry for any confusion. For the Stern metal speaker panels, no additional grounding cable is required as the display's bracket is grounded directly through the metal threaded posts used for mounting, which are grounded by the strap that is connected to the metal speaker panel.

Does that happen? Laser failure? And would love to have a brighter red! Is a brighter red available? It’s more Klingon

#6234 2 years ago

I've never seen it happen, but I guess it could!

Here's the mod. I like the idea of the blue one myself:

Buy every mod zitt makes for Sterns Star Trek, they look completely factory the two highlights are his nebula mod which is ridiculously good and those pop caps are awesome, no ST should be without them!

So the LED flasher under the pop bumpers on my ST Pro broke.

Aside from white, any thoughts on what other colors may look good?

I was thinking blue or purple.

I am probably not the best person to answer this as I don't like coloured GI/flashers etc, but imo ST really suits cool white, it just gives it that feel the enterprise has in the new movies, very minimalist futuristic clean and clinical.

ST Premium is my favorite game again. I like it more than my MMr & AFMr.

I had been playing the MMr & AFMr a lot, and letting the ST sit. Since I started playing it again I realize how much I like that game.

Anyone fitted flipper fidelity speakers (3 piece Inc sub) to their stern star trek?

And is it a worthwhile upgrade?

Weird. I was just thinking about this. Wondering about putting them in my met. Also when I finally find a star trek premium to buy.
