Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
The TAF one doesn't do it for me, but that T2 mod is *incredible*! It looks like it should have been on the game all along.
Could these kits be tied to an insert lamp, so they only go on for certain modes? I was thinking for something for TZ.
Short answer is yes. Long answer is yes but.....
You have come to the heart of many of our mods. Our lighted pinball speaker panels use a lot of power, and many games may not support that extra power. Some of our "lines" of mods, plasma pop bumpers, El Wire, glowing instruction cards all cause a lot of noise and interference to the electronics on the game. That is one of the main reasons that many of these were never made into wide spread mods.
We worked hard on getting around these problems. This is also a reason we are coming out with so much at one time. We did not want to let a bunch of our simple secrets out piece by piece. We wanted to do them all at once, so everyone would know they came from us.
The secret is simple, but as far as I can see has not been used widespread. We get our power from the service outlet in the game. If you have an import, the plug may have to be installed to use our mods. We then have a very small PCB that has a relay that is triggered from voltage on your game, which allows the relay to open, and you get power from the service outlet. Solves a lot of problems. No noise or interference, no power supply issues, can work in any game.
We are trying to keep it simple when we start and are pulling voltage from only one place on the game. With a resistor put in line, you could trigger our relay from any switch on the game. We won't support that at this time, because we have so much else going on.
So the answer is yes, but you will have to do a little on your own to have it do that.
So yes, you can have our EL wire kits, our plasma pop bumpers, nearly 10 foot under the cabinet and behind the cabinet LED kit or glowing instruction panels work off of a different switch on the game.
The video on the Terminator is with a sound activation system. If you want the EL wire to come on and off from another switch, you can do that with a standard EL wire kit that we will have.
I think we have 10 different colors on the standard EL wire, which all can work with sound activation. 4 colors with the EL wire chase. Each kit will come with 5 meters of wire, which should be more then enough from 1 game. We will also offer splitters and some other accessories.
Standard EL wire and be cut and split, no problem. Chase EL wire can not be split. If you want the lights going in the same direction as we have on Addams Family, you need to run it down one side of the ramp, go under the playfield, to near you originating spot, then came back up on to the playfield and run it down the other side of the ramp.
We have found the easiest way to mount EL Wire is either with a clear zip tie through an existing hole or use clear scotch tape. Don't use the invisible tape that has a frosted look on it, you will see that.
We are trying to get all of our stuff finalized at the same time. We feel once we open, we won't have and time for research and development for a long time so we are trying to get it done before we open.
