Quoted from MustangPaul:

Should have measured the cut out, 2x24 works perfect.

Got the EL paper in before panel! But I am going to order the 2x24 today and save the other one for another project!

Here's my new one. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/volcano-a-new-mod-from-mustangpaul

I know this is kind of a fiddly ask, but can a premium or LE owner show how the wiring from the Vengeance is supposed to be run? Mine seems to hang up on something and rarely locks into full crash position. It already blew a transistor, so I pulled it out, verified all the coils are good, had the blown transistor replaced, even removed my interactive Vengeance light mod in case it was the issue, and no real change.

see post #6433 there are a few cases with the same issue.

Thanks Beatmaster, the pix help.

I'm actually having the opposite issue tho...my Vengeance never crashes... it dives and shakes when you kill it but it but doesn't lock down. Very weird. Maybe if I can get another set of hands later I'll try to make a video.

Have you ever tilted while hitting warp shots?

I was completely in the zone yesterday, hitting warp after warp. Warp 1, Warp 2, Warp 3, Warp 4, Warp 5 [Holy crap, I’m doing awesome!], Warp 6, TILT!

I didn’t realize it, but I was subconsciously pushing the side of the pin with each flipper hit, willing the ball to get up the warp ramp. Eventually, it caught up to me, and I titled. I was so in the zone, I didn’t even hear the warning. Probably the best run I’ve had. Oh well .....

#6468 3 months ago

looks amazing! good job

1 have just 1 piece in stock now

#6469 3 months ago

Only ever hit 3 warp ramps in a row.

Anyone have any ideas for a nice replacement rubber set to use for Star Trek? The original black rubber in my Stle has reached the end of its lifespan and is starting to make a mess everywhere. Not sure I like the look of all white and would like to try something other than factory black. Thanks!

I used all Blue from Titan for ST, I really like it. I have the clear in AC/DC and really liking them there, might try clear for ST as well next time

#6475 3 months ago

I have blue Titans too. Look great!

#6476 3 months ago

Blue Titans as well. Seem to hold up well except the sling shot rubbers. Rotated them a few times before they broke. I'm trying the perfect play sling shot rubbers now but everything else is blue Titans

I use polyurethane in my STLE, rubber doesn't hold up. ST's eat rubber for some reason. I use some 3/8 for some areas, but mostly use the larger 7/16.

flippers & slings, I still prefer good old fashion black rubber.

Glad to report I am a new member of the club. Truly love the Aurich Mod translite set. Getting a Beastmaster mod as soon as they are done. Fun Game.

Welcome to the club, but please consider getting some blue flipper rubbers to match the slings.

Speaking of rubbers, I just bought a sttng and came with red flipper rubbers and black slings. Guess I should not of poked fun a few posts up so what is the color of choice for sttng?

I was a bit hesitant to replace the factory pop bumpers since, but glad I ordered them. Really breaks up all that blue in that corner. Thx Zitt.

IMO, I needed more light I went with some other lights.

Quoted from camcamaro1991:

I agree; it needs more light - however, on my machine - I noticed adding more light = more current = which causes the already overwhelmed controlled GI circuit to overload and go into short circuit mode. On my LE (and several other machines); this symptom shows up as the RGB inserts not working properly (flashing or completely dark).

IF you aren't seeing it; great. But keep it in mind.

Happy Birthday, Mr Steve Richie!

i added a external power supply to the cabinet from the 220V/110V side

there is a switched power cable next to the tilt, i think for a ticket box or so
this line is switched with the main switch
perfect to connect a external power supply

+1 with light blue flipper rubbers

Anybody that has troubleshooted a switch or opto causing the game to select mission/auto plunge on it's own have a 10 second delay before happens? It happens like clockwork and waits 10 seconds every time but does not happen at start of game or when I end mission by draining. I have tried reseating connectors, putting in switch test and pounding on playfield with no phantom switch hits, not the vengance target because it does not score when it happens, timed plunger is off and flipper launch is off.

you mentioned reseating connectors, not sure which ones you did, did you re-seat the trough opto connectors? sometimes those come lose and can cause random issues like auto plunge

Quoted from InfiniteLives:

Yes have tried that also. I could swear it is a code/bug issue the way it behaves with the 10 second delay and not happening on start or mission drain. Read countless threads that code causing it is highly unlikely so must be a switch/opto that's not showing up in switch test.

i had to replace my optos on the vengeance cause it was doing weird things in gameplay and triggering when the flippers flipped sometimes... but couldnt re-create it in test mode. had to tear almost the whole topside off to get to em. super lame design. might just be 1 bad opto causing it

edit: I think I may have bought a few extra optos when I did my vengeance, I can check later today when im off work

My favorite mod is probably the theatrical soundtrack and external subwoofer, but I have a ton of others, hallmark ships, Aurich, ColorDMD, Zitt's stuff, lighted apron, lighted speakers, shaker, and on and on...
