Quoted from jfesler:

I had to rush out and get these.

You realize that’s just white light and the games natural colors. Uv glow is off here. You will see it in video coming up

#2602 3 months ago

Gameplay footage. When you get a reactor going and whole machine shakes it’s even better bad sadly not in this quick video.

#2603 3 months ago

Definitely not for me, but I'm glad you're enjoying it.

#2604 3 months ago

I have played this game in four locations and not had a problem with the GI as designed. To each his own.

Quoted from Whysnow:

what was already a good thing

Hilton knows pinball: no additional lighting necessary.

#2606 3 months ago

Yeah, sorry, but the over bright and reflections look like crap and are distracting. Completely washes out much of the great lighting effects of the game.

Video and in person are two different things. I think if I shot same video in the dark without pinstadium on you would say the exact same thing.

The only reason you see reflection of lights is because of angle and no invisishield installed.

#2608 3 months ago

I’ll come over and play it

#2609 3 months ago

Relax, folks. Even if most agree the game doesn’t need them, let the guy enjoy his lights.

It’s his game, he can mod it any way he likes.

#2610 3 months ago

IMHO the atmosphere that Scott has created with the lighting effects is awesome. I like playing TNA in a darkened room to enjoy the full light and sound show. For me, I think that the Pinstadiums would take too much away from his original theme.
They may work well on other pins, but personally I’d never put them on my TNA.

#2613 3 months ago
Quoted from Ilushka85:

Before and after pictures attached.

Looks awesome man. I love the colors of that art in the middle of the play field and the way the back plastic can be seen well now. UV fits the theme well too.

Don’t let them crush your dreams dude

When the reactor is going the light show which was already insane is just a tad cooler with uv

You did a nice job integrating them with the built-in lightshow. Looks poppin’!

#2617 3 months ago

Can we AT LEAST all agree that Pinstadiums help shed a little much-needed light on WOZ?
That game honestly needed a little additional GI lighting!

I installed it in woz and opted to take it out. Nothing wrong with the product... just depends on your own personal perception of impact.

Hush, you two. This isn't a pinstadium or woz thread. If you want to moan about those things, moan elsewhere.

#2622 3 months ago

Pinstadium is always so polarizing. I'm not going to use it in any of my games, and I think UV mode and the flash effect is about the worst thing ever, but a lot of people seem to really like the mod. I don't see TNA being a title that would benefit nearly as much as many older games, however.

#2623 3 months ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

Pinstadium looks bad in every single game i have seen it in. Shame to see people so obsessed with blinging out games that they continually bastardize them with over the top blow out the art led kits like that. Amazed people pay so much to trash their games and many times make them unplayable with the strobe effect of crappy led strips.
I guess, looking forward to photos and video to see if pinstadium can finally look good in a game or if it messes up what was already a good thing.

This argument never ends so just let it be....awarded mod of the year and the amount he has sold pretty much prove that your opinion is just that, an opinion...saying it doesn't look good on any game is ludicrous and looking to get a reaction...move along..back to TNA!

#2624 3 months ago

To each his own.
My .02 cents is that TNA is lighting marvel on it own.

No need to Change a thing.

#2625 3 months ago
Quoted from Pmaino:

picked up the custom brackets from herg for the speaker lights. Looks so much better

herg Have you decided to offer the speaker brackets as an item in the market? I'd love a set!

#2626 3 months ago
Quoted from 27dnast:

I literally had not even heard of "Pinstadium" lighting until a few minutes ago. But a quick look at their website shows that you can fine tune the brightness to your liking. So I am curious why you pulled it out of WOZ, because if ever there was a pin in need of additional GI lighting, WOZ is it.

#2627 3 months ago

Total Nuclear Anihilation: A rockin' good time pinball by Scott Danesi and Spooky pinball. It's awesome. A throwback style game with modern technology. Amazing sound and lighting ...

... that have nothing to do with pinstadium LED strips or Wizard of OZ.

#2628 3 months ago
Quoted from xeneize:

herg Have you decided to offer the speaker brackets as an item in the market? I'd love a set!

Not in the Pinside market, but you can get the file (for free) to print your own, or place an order for me to print and ship them to you. Both are available on my website:
http://ledocd.com/cart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=34

Note that my printer queue is getting really backed up at this point, and new orders will probably take around two weeks to be ready.

#2629 3 months ago

So I've had the game for a few weeks and have done a couple of things to dial it in to my liking, play-wise. Thought I would share.

First off, I re-gapped the pop bumper to be super sensitive. It took some doing, but it's perfect at the moment. Also, playfield slope is currently at about 7.25.

I've changed some menu settings... including upping the coil settings for the pop to make it wicked fast.

Here's a list of changes:

*Game Play (features)*
Ball Save Destroy Reactor: NO
Ball Save Timer: 6
Ball Save Multiball: 6
Reactor Difficulty: Hard

*Machine Coil Settings*
Pop Bumper: 23
Scoop Right: 40
Scoop Left: 22
Sings (core): 7
Slight Left and Right: 8
Trough Kick: 20

*Machine Settings (standard)*
Flipper Hold Boost: 3

Add to this a coat of wax and the machine is really a lightning fast ass-kicker... it's current difficult state has cranked up that "one more game" feeling, but has also made it less accessible to novice players. I do wish there was a Reactor Difficulty that made it more difficult to unlock and heat up a reactor while leaving the first reactor kill shot at one target (second at two targets... so on and so forth) ... maybe that will eventually surface

I have a replacement monitor and will give that a go in the coming days, as I'd like to have a bit more contrast off-axis. I'll report back on how that goes!

Quoted from RobT:

Initially I had thought Woz was dim or needed GI help, but since it’s in my game room and dim lighting it’s totally fine imo and probably helps the overall feel of the pin with the insert lights really pop especially in witch all lights on mode which is totally the best lighting I’ve ever seen in a pinball machine.

Here’s my brightest game IMVE next to Woz. Woz looks fine when you are playing it even in very dim room.

We're In the Club! TNA #128 arrived last night. We set it up, did a few adjustments, drank beer, played League. A hell of a night! No one left early, it was just too much fun.

Photos of night 1 with #128...

In agreement... I think WOZ is stellar kept stock.

#2633 3 months ago
Quoted from 27dnast:

I do wish there was a Reactor Difficulty that made it more difficult to unlock and heat up a reactor

easiest ways to increase difficulty:

1] require more than the current 4 hits to the 3-bank to put the reactor online.
flexibility exists to make it as high as nine, the nine inserts in front of the keypad.
could be an operator adjustable setting, say from 3 to 9.

2] provide an option where, once online, the slings and spinner register a fraction
of the credit they currently do towards the 100.

If you would like to learn more about the Pin Stadiums for WOZ feel free to come over to the Pin Stadium thread here:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/new-pin-stadium-lights-official-announcement/page/41

Also you can email Jack from JJP too if you want to hear what he thinks of them as he loves them on WOZ! However epthegeek is right as it’s not the best thread to discuss them as it will blow up this thread and throw Scott’s TNA thread spiraling off topic. You can also email me directly scott@pinstadium.com. Thanks!!

You're welcome. I'm glad it is useful for you. I'm curious about how many others have printed. My own printer is going to be quite busy for a while.

#185 on the line in the next 2 weeks!!!! Can't wait!!

When running Speaker Lights / Knocker / Shaker / Rail lights will I need the power distribution board I saw listed on PBL? Ordering up my mirror blades so I'll pick one up if needed.

i don't have a printer (yet but a local company i contacted would print both for £30.

Now all I need is the rest of the speaker kit but KT has gone silent!

No you will not. I have all of those installed without a distribution board. I actually bought one thinking I might need it, but it is still sitting in it’s box unopened. If it hadn’t taken so long for my TNA to arrive I would return it, but I’m sure that I’ve run out of time to do that.

Looks like you have a customer

#2645 3 months ago

Anyone having an issue with the ball getting stuck in the scoop and getting a drop target error? It keeps happening on my game but when I reboot it works fine. It is driving me fk'n crazy.

Printed a couple of them tonight. Worked great. PLA / Natural / 215 / 50.

I bet your pop bumper is also going out when this happens. Check the power to the top driver board. Mine was doing this intermittently until I punched down the 2 wire power connector. I actually punched them all, but I think this is what finally fixed it.

Total Nuclear Annihilation Meltdown Mirrors are now available through Pinball Life!
If you order and send them to Spooky Pinball before your TNA is assembled, they will install them in your game!

Are these still available? I noticed the link no longer works and I couldn't find another reference to it on Pinball Life.

<scratches head> Thanks! I tried that same link this morning/yesterday, but it wasn't coming up. Wasn't showing in a search either. Assuming it must have been temporarily delisted from the site.
