Wow, that Borg ship looked amazing!
I just started painting mine. At least with the primer.
But I am looking at ending up with the same colour scheme as you have.
I have seen some that are done very black, and that doesn't look right.
So gray shades with a bit of metallic is the way I am going.
Maybe I have to get a more light gray color for the base?

Finally got the time to get the painting done on my ship. Really happy with the results!
And I had a fun time doing it.





Now, on to the cannons.

Quoted from mskoenen:

Has anyone installed a playfield spotlight? If so, where did you put it?

I am in the exact same boat.
I had a long stare at the playfield, but I could not find any good places for them.
I would like to light up the Borg ship and the general PF areas

Someone just offered to buy my STTNG. I have to admit that it is somewhat tempting, but at the same time, I just freaking love that game!
Is there any games that can compare to STTNG, toys/features/code?

Thanks for the info about the domed cannons. I bought the domes myself, but could not figure out how to remove the old ones.
Now I know

Pin guy: what do you treat the metal brackets with when you have cleaned them up? And what do you use to clean them?

Does anyone have any good suggestions for spotlights in STTNG? it is very dark...

#957 4 years ago
Quoted from transprtr4u:

This is where I installed mine! Used the super bright 4smd white bulbs!

Thank you!
That looks like a good place to have them.
I will update the thread when I place mine.

Quoted from ViperJelly:

Are there others that make sense to consider as well?

I have The Shadow next to my STTNG. TS is a totally different beast, lightening fast, great ruleset, animation, music. It will never leave!

Quoted from Schwaggs:

The tieback mod has been covered many times on Pinside, maybe we should make a specific thread about it so we can easily refer everyone to the thread?

The best thing would be to update the first post in this thread. That way it would be very easy to find, and for new owners would see it
right away.

Quoted from pcprogrammer:

ny tips on reducing the glare from the DMD?

This is cheap, works wonders, and won`t look silly in the machine.


#1325 4 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

Looks like that would work great also. It doesn't say what machines it fits, or if its universal.

It is universal. i Have it on Pinball Magic, BSD, STTNG, TS and so on.

Regarding the Tieback mod. this is a great thread with very good explanation.

What is the easiest way to adjust the upper flipper so it is perfectly aligned?
I can make the shot, but not consistently, and would just want to make sure it is perfect.

I am thinking about doing a top shop of my STTNG and changing all the optos for fresh ones. This will be my 7th or so top shop.

How bad is it?

to change out the mission start cover, do i need to remove the subway? or can i sneak it out?

#2384 3 years ago
Quoted from Axl:

To answer my own question, no.

side note, the owner before med cleand up the game very nice. removed the subway and it was very clean. impressive.
The game has been performing flawless in 3 years now. is that a record?

Quoted from Pin_Guy:

these are much cleaner and IMO give you better ball control.

I would say too much ball control. Go with the titan ones. They are silicone and plays like a normal red rubber. The super bands are too sticky for my taste.

#2694 2 years ago
Quoted from Pin_Guy:

this is an in home pin for a player that wants to enjoy the game and not have it as "the black sheep" of his collection.

You are totally right. With you 100% When I think back, my game came with super bands. Maybe that’s the reason that I got hooked in.

last year (!) my son was playing my game and shouted from the basement that it was on fire.
Found out the hard way that the tieback mod was not done.
I have tried to fix the old board, no go. I have bought a new board and coil. I have done the tieback mod with the tieback going to J08 as suggested
at pinwiki.

I have checked all my fuses, all good. still, all the diverter coils are dead.
I bet this has come up like 100 times, but I am stumped. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.
