I'm looking forward to this!

You should get his shooter housing light up too, save on postage.

Oh man, I'm a sucker for good mods. Any pics or a link?

#604 3 years ago

Here's his and my mod together, they really change the way the front of games look, there's nothing on the market like them.

This mod, in beautiful interactive blue, is an absolute gem that brings my STLE Vengeance to life. Thanks Bob. It should have been installed from the factory and nicely complements the 3D red explosion below it, as they are hooked to different flashers.

Immediately following installation, my Vengeance would no longer exit crash mode due to the added weight of the disk. In fairness, on occasion prior to install, my ship would be slow to exit crash mode. Upon removing the black cover to understand how the mechanism works, it became clear that the issue resided with the underpowered springs. I installed 2 small clear rubber bands and then the ship would completely and swiftly exit crash mode. However, coil test #53 was no longer capable of exerting sufficient force for the ship to enter crash mode. After much experimentation I elected to concede defeat and just play the game. To my amazement, the Vengeance is able to consistently enter crash mode during game play. Long story short, the cheap, quick, low tech solution works great!

I was hoping to receive a Starfleet Access pass that some early adopters got... Evidently I have not yet achieved my Captain status. LOL

Glad you got it fixed, now you have to get Bobs shooter housing light up.

thanks for letting me know.

some people had issue even without the mod installed, others never had issues with the mod installed, go figure.
i guess since all games are not built the same way (by hand) it's probably one of the reason and the spring.

i did that Starfleet Access pass about 1 1/2 - 2 years ago, when i had everything in stock.
i'd be happy to make you one and send it to you. just pm me.

#620 3 years ago

i'll be away for the next 2 weeks starting this wednesday.

so anyone who wants to be on the list for my next batch just send me a pm and i'll go through my pm's in the order i received them, no worries i will save your spot.

Another vacation. You lucky dog.

I have found the 'crash' issues are all related to the cables. The stern cable connected the ship going through the white cable holder needs a clean path to crash and retract properly.

Run the Stern cable on its own and run the cable for this mod separately and you should have no issues.

i agree, that's why in the instructions it says make sure no dragging or pulling (premium/le).

#625 3 years ago
Quoted from beatmaster:

The wire connecting the disk is draped over top of the Vengeance (I didn't even run it under the back part of the ship for fear of binding), and does not exit through the white hoop used to power the Vengeance. Both cables pull free and clear of any obstruction. Springs stretch and weaken over time, and were not designed to carry the increased load. Lubrication and cleaning the track it slides upon helps to some extent. But the bottom line here is the need for "more power Scotty!" . Some have removed and shortened the springs, thereby increasing their probability of snapping. If a rubber snaps it will inflict no playfield damage and can be replaced in about a minute. Happy gaming!
