Check out this beautiful bit of local artistic talent for my by GZ! Laser-etched aluminum with the color coming from the depth of the etch.

Quoted from Sleal16:

This one's an ESP32 TTGO display. Several on amazon. It has 4MB memory but can attach an SD card module. these couple of mod projects I'm planning I only need 20-40 frames and the gif is converted to C code and rendered, so thats about 4MB total. I'm not sure how well it'll perform with a long clip of an SD card. Late this year I'll be messing with a larger screen for a different mod and will see what board performs better for longer clips.

Sounds interesting! I had an idea for a mod that would utilize a small screen like that, but I haven't really thought about how to do it yet. It's a long ways off. But those little screens have potential for sure.

Just signed up for that guy's mailing list. Great artwork & cool idea for sure. Thanks for sharing!

Quoted from Sleal16:

These little things are great. Cant wait to use my vacation days from work over the next couple of months (have 140 hours that are expiring soon) to mess around with these projects...and hopefully have enough space made to move the game home instead of it living at the office.
(ignore the audio)

Any particular plans for that little display? Seems like it could be incorporated into a lot of mod ideas.

#1905 49 days ago

I’m looking for a mod similar to eye of Sauron from lotr but with Godzilla eye. Also curious to see somebody make a real flame mod, maybe Godzilla figurine with electric lighter built inside to shoot little flame wen flashers go off .

Random stuff I have drafted on paper. Wont know what might look good or not till I build enclosures for them. Movie billboard type signs for the building, ball lock animations, scoop sign. I'll post something sometime in July once time is fully dedicated to this. Right now I'm just taking some random frames and cropping for the resolution to see what works and doesnt work. Also need to record video of it in a different manner. It comes out a bit washed out in my phone video recording.

Great ideas. It looks like an Arduino nano - does it come with the display already soldered to the board?

On these the screen come as part of the unit. Different chips than the arduino but can be relatively be programmed in similar fashions. I like that these boards come with wi-fi and bluetooth, so a good amount of options. I havent messed with circuit building in 15+ years, so its fun jumping back into it and trying to see what i do and dont remember in programing/etc.

The TV mod I've been selling for 8 years plays about 30 mins of video before it loops. The wood grain TV has sold for about 40 different titles over the years, but TSPP has been my biggest seller by far. I'm working on GZ video now. If anyone is interested, these are $149. You can send me a DM. All my TV mods have been out of stock since August, and I'm just putting them back in stock, so not sure how long they'll last before I can have more ready.

Here's short example of Beatles and TSPP:

oooh good idea. I need to do that. I also may add some more paint to mine.

I took out my Mechagodzilla and painted it today. It just felt very flat, wanted to give it some shadows. Wish i had taken before pictures to have fair lighting comparison. Pretty happy with it. I think it looks better with my painted Godzilla figure, and my future painted mods. Taking it out and putting it back in was a bitch, though.
One little touch I added was painting the tips of the rocket on his tongue to match the movie... can't really see them while playing though!

Great job. I’ve wanted to do this as well, just haven’t had time yet. I was also thinking of cutting out the eyes, replacing with translucent yellow lenses & tying a small LED inside the head to the flasher dome behind him

Good idea, I considered trying to do the head spinning mod the other guy did but this is my only pin and it's a week old so I don't want it to be out of service long enough for me to figure that out!

I think once I get a nice mothra sculpt to paint and put in the back that will really bring it all together..

I got my set of Cliffy's for my game, but I can't seem to find any instructions for the installation. I've never installed these before. I found videos on YouTube for other games, but the pieces differ slightly.

It came with a protector for the scoop, but the game already has a metal rim protecting the scoop playfield area. Is this new, or should I still be upgrading to the Cliffy protector?

Anyone else install Cliffys on their Godzilla?

Cliff doesn’t always update his site in the main area, most new games are under “what’s new!”

Check part way down the page for Godzilla. These are super easy to install, but you do have to remove a couple of pieces

Morning/Afternoon Folks!

Looking for some insight here from my fellow GZ owners. I ordered the speaker light kit from Doug at speakerlightkits.com back in February and still have not seen them or heard any correspondence. Ive tried reaching out to him with no luck. Before I file a case with PayPal I was wondering if anyone in the community has dealt with him before, knows him or has a similar experience? Feel free to text me if you'd like. 2063028382. Thanks a lot for your input /time in this matter

He's running 6 months out, approximately
Did you read all of the text on the product page for this? Or try searching "doug" or speakerlights in this thread and the mod thread. You just have to wait. If you bug him, he'll straight up cancel your order. The product page says as much

Do you guy see much need for this? Looks like the game ships with metal protection on the scoop, on the shooter lane, and Mylar in the inlanes. What are the most vunerable places you guys are worried about?

Just hang tight. Many of us are still waiting for Doug to custom build the orders. See pic for what Doug states. It is a great product, so we are waiting, patiently.

Im quite familiar with his disclaimer when I ordered, but its been 4 months and there was no message about 6 months when i ordered. I'm patient, obviously, i was just wanting some sort of communication, thats all.

The shooter lane is a bit tricky, have to lift up the outer side rail( remove some screws ) then gently, and I mean gently hammer out large twist nails/bolts. Just have to take your time. I believe someone posted some pics in the group here their experience. I installed the protectors, very easy, just went slow.

The only metal protector is on the scoop for this game so you really don’t need to purchase an additional scoop protector.

There is no metal protector for the shooter lane, inlanes, and out hole drain. This is where I always instal cliffys because I put thousands of plays of my games so there would be a lot of wear there.

Does it affect game play if don’t install them? Nope. Does it help with piece of mind with I go to sell the game? You bet it does.

#1931 48 days ago

Thanks, I saw the type 13 on a bunch of peoples machines and thought it was super cool. Havent seen one with type 14 yet.

I've put cliffy slot protectors on games where the habitrail drops the ball directly on the switch. Are they really necessary for a switch that the ball just rolls over?

#1936 48 days ago

Has anyone done anything cool yet with the mothra plastic in the back? Replaced it with a cool mod or something? I’m not in love with the flat plastic but all the mothra toys I’ve found would be too big for the space.

I wouldn’t worry. At least on my pro I am not worried about any spots needing cliffy’s. I just added Cointaker’s shooter lane protector.

Offered a speaker light kit for sale. Got 4 responses in 10 minutes.

#1943 48 days ago
Quoted from MarklarD:

If anyone hasnt ordered one, and wants the Godzilla Speakerlight kit sooner than later, I decided not to install mine and would send it your way at cost. Ill pay shipping.
I have the magnetic speaker grill decal and rather keep that on there instead of install the speaker light kit.
Let me know. Ill edit this post if it gets claimed.

I'll gladly accept the offer

Did you try to contact me before today? From what I see...you e-mailed me at 11:15 EST this morning and asked about your order. It seems you then got impatient after a few minutes and decided to post here about how I was not responding to your "reaching out" to me. At 11:39 EST (before I saw your post here) I had a response back to you. do you find that 24 minutes that it took me to respond to your e-mail unacceptable? I see a lot of other posts about unresponsive sellers and that is not me. Those post are normally about sellers not responding after days or weeks.....not 24 minutes.

Had you previously tried to reach me somehow? E-mail, Pinside PM or Facebook message? If so....I didn't see any of them and haven't received any other reports of messages not getting to me. I get the occasional one in the spam folder, but even those are normally seen within a few days.

Quoted from JayLar:

I would say it is currently ONE of my most popular, but not THE most popular. I see no reason for this one new product to drag down the delivery times on all of my other items that don't take nearly the time to make. Why would I sink my other 13 light kit types and their delivery times with a new product that takes more time and effort to make? Then you would be seeing this sort of questioning and talk on every game thread instead of just concerning the type 14 kits. I don't work on the type 14 kits when I feel like it...I do it when I have time to work on them.

Quoted from Muymanwell:

You must be shipping A LOT of light kits if the Godzilla one takes six months to get from you.

The type 14 flaming light kits (they are not just for Godzilla...they work in any SPIKE 2 games) did not go on sale until Jan 6th, 2022. So no one, as of now, has had to wait 6 months for one.

Felt the same way about the mothra plastic. Found this guy recently , added a little paint. Size should work good for the machine. Mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow, ordered back in December. Can't wait to start throwing my mods at it.
