If the snack bar mod list isn't full, I'd like to be added, just got notification my Swinks mod is coming soon. Thanks!

Sure, thing. Added! Many thanks

#152 3 years ago

Received mine today. Real nice mod. Easy to install with the excellent instructions. Thanks for this!

Appreciate the feedback Peter, really glad you like it. Enjoy!

If you could add me to the list too I’d appreciate it!!
Will there be a separate thread for the chase light board mod??

Great, gotcha down mate for the Chase Echo, many thanks (once again)!

Yep I'm going to create a new thread in a couple of weeks. Will make sure to link to it from this one. Just want to get all existing Snackbar orders out of the way first, otherwise my workshop becomes mental ! :-/

Hi everyone! Here's my quick review. If anyone has any questions about how I did my install or if something isn't clear please feel free to message me. For reference, I am installing the Move Your Snackbar mod in Swink's Snackbar Version 5..

PACKAGING
Everything was well packed and protected. The circuit board was in an anti-static bag. The LED strips were in clear parts bags, the cardboard shipping box was lined in protective foam. Nothing was damaged. Colour instructions were provided.

INSTALLATION
I completed the installation about a week ago. Like bigian mentioned earlier, it's a bit fiddly getting the LED strip lined up behind the snack bar sign, but it's worth the time and patience you put into it. Don't rush this install. Make sure you take your time. I had a few questions regarding the placement of the LED strips, but Davey responded immediately and cleared things up for me.

I chose to mount my PCB vertically so that I would have easier access to the DIP switches. I screwed it directly into the playfield, which stumblor should take as a HUGE compliment. I like things factory original, and normally the thought of screwing anything into a playfield gives me shivers, but this little circuit board looked so nice I didn't mind at all.

I only used 3 of the 4 provided mounting screws, but all 4 standoffs. The top left corner is the one I chose not to screw down. It was too close to the cable management bracket. On my pin, the bracket is flipped the other way at least when compared to the photo shown in the manual. That made it a little tighter fit for me so I did without the fourth screw. It's solid enough. I wouldn't recommend using less than 3 screws.

1 (resized).jpg1 (resized).jpg 2 (resized).jpg2 (resized).jpg 3 (resized).jpg3 (resized).jpg

Here is what the underside of my Swink's Snackbar looks like with the LED strip mounted.

4 (resized).jpg4 (resized).jpg 5 (resized).jpg5 (resized).jpg

For the snack bar sign (below), the wiring tucks right behind the 11 LED strip and the whole thing fits snuggly into place. Once screwed back down to the roof of Swink's mod it look like this.

6 (resized).jpg6 (resized).jpg

When I went to install everything back into my pin I noticed the wires were swapped on my LED Matrix component. I spoke to Davey about this briefly and he told me this wasn't an issue.

7 (resized).jpg7 (resized).jpg

Feeding the new wiring through the vacant playfield hole was easy enough, again just take your time. I connected all the wiring to the newly mounted circuit board under the playfield. The connectors are small, just be careful and use a delicate touch.

POWER ON
I just have to say right away, that I am really impressed with this mod. The Move Your Snackbar looks great. Actually, it looks incredible! I'm really impressed with how it functions. I tried a bunch of different neon colours, and sign patterns for fun, but I'm a sucker for the ice blue neon and pink sign so I put the DIPS back to the default settings. I showed my son and he couldn't tell I had done anything. To me, this shouts perfect mod! One that blends in. It is the perfect compliment to the Swink's Snackbar Mod. Two wonderful mods that no one will ever notice (except maybe my bank account) Ha ha!

IN DEPTH
I was seeing white light pulse through the neon. It was coming from the cool white LED inside the snackbar. Most people probably wouldn't even notice, but it bothered me so I decided to swap it out for a bulbless version.

8 (resized).jpg8 (resized).jpg

I am getting a bit of light bleed under the Snack Bar sign. Again, most people won't even notice, but my OCD does. In the image below you can see the thin line of light coming out from under the Snack Bar signage. I have the strip pushed in as far as it can go. The screw placement on the Snack Bar sign really only locks the back in place allowing the front to float a bit. Not a big deal. I'll probably get some black double-sided adhesive, or maybe even just sneak a drop of hot glue in there before securing it. Definitely not a deal breaker.

9 (resized).jpg9 (resized).jpg

I noticed the pink from my Snack Bar also bleeding through into the neon. Below, you can see the pink from the 11 LED strip bleeding into the 20 LED strip neon (currently red) at the very tip of the Snackbar mod. I'll probably add some sort of baffle inside to block the light from doing this. Black felt will probably do the trick.

10 (resized).jpg10 (resized).jpg

I think I'm going to relocate my 20 LED strip as well. I want to see more light towards the front of the Snack Bar mod near the tip. I have it back too far now and the front isn't getting as much light as I would like. If you have a V5 from Swinks I would suggest installing the 20 LED strip more towards the tip/front.

11 (resized).jpg11 (resized).jpg

I am really nitpicking here and I don't consider any of these issues flaws in the product. I consider them flaws in my personality! This pinball machine means a lot to me and I try to give it as much inanimate love as I can. Ha!

CONCLUSION
This is a brilliant mod that I have only positive vibes for. It is a professional build and you can tell that great care was taken in designing it. It really brings Swink's Snack Bar to life! If you have a Swink's Snack Bar, then you are doing yourself an injustice if you do not have the Move Your Snackbar to accompany it. Hitting all 4 of the snack standup targets and watching the lights to the Snack Bar blink on in time to the callout will have you smiling from ear to ear!

Thank you to stumblor (Davey) soooooo much for taking the time to create this, and to market it to smucks like me that do nothing but have opinions. Huge pat on the back to you! If we ever meet, and I hope we do, first pint is on me. Maybe even the second pint!

#157 3 years ago

If you are still taking orders, please add my name to the list.
Thank you, Mike

#158 3 years ago

Great writeup Tim and thanks a lot for taking the time to put it together. The best part of building mods has to be seeing them used and enjoyed in all the far flung places of the world.

Its funny sometimes explaining to people that one of my side gigs is building a circuit board that does a little light show for someone elses snackbar in a pinball machine about a drive in movie monster. Pinball can be weird and frivolous sometimes but it makes us smile and isn't that a great thing.

Just got my stumblor Snack Bar lighting mod in the mail today - 12 days total in the mail system which I think is pretty good considering I live in a small town in the middle of the country. Will put it together this weekend with the 1.5 conversion kit that swinks put on Shapeways (thanks!) Looking forward to seeing it in action!

I gotta say, I'm enjoying the Knight Rider pattern the most so far. I knew I would like it, but I honestly didn't think it would be a front runner.

Wahey! Great stuff. Let me know how you get on with the install.

Quoted from Fifty:

Probably my favourite too. Its two sine waves - the first controlling the fade from left to right, the second controlling the movement over time. Finally those high school maths classes are paying off! Originally I was going to steer away from fading patterns, to try to keep it as authentic 'neon' as possible. But once i'd tried them they looked so good I had to keep em.

Wow... I'm honestly humbled! Really didn't expect any votes this year, and considering how many insanely great mods there are out there at the moment (Compy's TZ backboard for instance) I'm happy even to be considered in the same league. Huge thanks.

Also this ....

Quoted from swinks:

Certainly loses a lot of its lustre that's for certain !! In all seriousness though there wouldn't even be this project without the amazing work Jady has done on the Snackbar mod. Huge amount of work from him, sometimes thankless (though fortunately not often) but the end result is one of the most recognisable and loved mods in all of pinball. Good to point out how welcoming and forthcoming he was when I proposed this project to him in the first place. Big ups Jady!

Thanks very much fellas for the kind words. Considering all the other incredible work that is about at the moment I'm amazed and humbled even to be included on the same list.

I once read an anecdote that Liam Gallagher from Oasis called his new band "beady eye" simply because it would mean that he'd get listed next to the Beatles in music catalogues. I feel a bit like that - snuck a seat on the big kids table, but not quite sure how I managed it, and almost definately on the coat tails of others.

Huge thanks to all those who voted. And an even bigger thanks to those that will vote again. Biggest thanks of all to Jady swinks who deserves equals shares in the accolades and without who this mod wouldn't even exist. A top guy and a good mate.

Vote for Pedro!

Just a quick update...

Tested MYS with the new L5 rom this morning, and while I wasn't expecting any surprises it's nice to see that everything is still working as expected. The Chase Echo, which potentially had a bigger risk of issues due to being reliant on the GI line, is also a-ok. There's been a few discussions as to exactly what L5 does with the lighting, and the general consensus seems to be that the LED inserts seem to be less-ghostey with L5. LED GI fading issues remain however. I'm running two Afterglow boards in my machine (one nano for the inserts and one GI) and happily they both work without issues as well.

In other news, the next 10 boards are built and ready to go out. Those peeps that have paid an invoice recently, you'll have tracking numbers incoming later today. Thanks for everyones patience. The UK is now on full lockdown which means working from home and trying to get the kids to do schoolwork at the same time. Everyone is fed up and frustrated. Good to remember that there are people and families in much worse situations - I have heard there are even some homes without a single pinball machines in the house! *gasp* *shocked face* Keep calm and carry on (making light of a bad situation).

On that note - here's some boards!

Did I miss something, what’s Steady Eddy?

#184 3 years ago

Just a little side project I've been working on - it's an auto eddy board that triggers a lightshow when a ball is detected. I designed it for Theatre of Magic, so the magic wand outlane magna-save triggers a 'magical' lighting effect, but it will work for all the eddy games - CV, RS etc. More on that soon!

I don't have any of these games. My wallet is safe.

#187 3 years ago

haha.. You won't be so smug when I release a swarth of Surfer related mods !!

Except I almost certainly won't.

#188 3 years ago

Glad to see my mod is coming soon! How does one acquire the Afterglow boards? I've seen them mentioned in a few threads and my initial search showed someone made a run of the blank pcbs and people were building them themselves... I was wondering if anyone sells the finished boards or a kit with all the parts?

#189 3 years ago

We've done a couple of group buys from PCBWay over on this side of the pond, which were great - but a lot of work for the organiser (ie me!)

This is the one I did for the AG:

https://www.pinballinfo.com/community/threads/afterglow-nano-group-buy-%C2%A3%C2%A3-payment-time-%C2%A3%C2%A3.46305/

And this is a more recent one done by someone else for the AGGI:

https://www.pinballinfo.com/community/threads/afterglow-gi-aggi-for-short-bulk-order.47907/

In multiples of about 50 they worked out at about £40ea. If you ever did decide to go down this route we'd be happy to share all the BOM and PCBWay order information that we generated from creating those orders.

I have a couple of bare boards left, but no kits. Not sure of anyone doing it in kit form. Because it's all SMD soldering it's a bit of a faff to do yourself, but doable. Let me know if you'd like a bare board I can hook you up.

If you have a WPC machine, they are certainly well worth having and make a huge, huge difference.

He's working on the Chase Echo mod right now, but I am pretty sure he'll do another MYS run in the future.
