Just got a 3d translite for Tron and the center guy/girl image has a pretty bad double image. I thought maybe it was because of the fluorescent light but I moved it to an LED light and it still looked the same. If I move way over to the side, like an adjacent game, the ghosting disappears (2nd pic). Wondering if that's typical for this translite or mine is just off.

I am curious to hear what people think, where did you get this from?

Got this from Da_Topper, who did a great job with the packaging btw. He might have more for sale.

Now that I've looked back through the original fs thead, I see others have noticed the same thing and it was pointed out that it seems to be made to be front lit. It does look perfect with the backlighting off. Best solution is one of those animated led kits so you get improved clarity and the fun portal motion. Overall I really like the 3d translite the best by far. Used to have the LE and that was one of my favorite features.

I haven't seen many of the 3d translights for sale. I'm surprised Stern didn't run more of them and sell them. They would sell well in backlit boxes I think.

I have a question, would the LED backbox kits work for all three translights? I have all three and wouldn't mind getting a upgrade kit but not sure if they are specific for each translight.

The kit that I have seems designed to give the impression that the disc is moving up in the portal. That effect wouldn't work on the other backboxes. I have the cointaker kit.

I have Kimball's and it is specific for the 3d translite. It animates the clouds and portals, and there is specific leds to light up Flynn and Clu. It was one of my most expensive mods but well worth it.

Wasn't impressed either. Put the 2d girls one in which is much better quality.

I have the 3D one and it does have it's issues when you're not standing in the right spot. However, I don't remember it being as you describe it.
