    They are almost all Terrible and look out of place.

    #3 12 months ago

    every alternate T2 translite I've seen looks awful.

    almost all of them are horrible cringe on the level of the CPR conversion kits. The one that always sticks out in my mind is the Getaway one with the hot chicks and the ferarri. First of all, the car in the game is a damn Lambo not a Ferrari. The photoshopped hot chicks are just stupid looking and the whole thing together just looks awful, doesn't match the game, and again is just cringe. In the game, you're supposed to be driving around like a mountainous area with tunnels and whatnot but on the alt translite its like they are in rural Nebraska or something. Like what kind of a creepy old man who is completely out of touch with the world do you have to be to put something like this in your game? What kind of pea brain even designed this and was like "HELLL YEAH THIS IS AWESOME" Its not like I'm easily offended or think its sexist or whatever either, its just awful in every way and mind bogglingly stupid. I think almost all of them are nearly this bad, but its the one that always creeps into my mind when I hear "alternate translite"

    They are almost all bad, the only one I kind of like is this one for Spring Break. If only they had an alternate playfield to match.

    Great thread ........ we should change the title to. “ let’s shit on someone’s art skills “

    #8 12 months ago

    LMAO how bored with pinball do you have to be put one of these atrocities on your game?

    You realize your wife and kids are laughing behind your backs at this stuff right?

    #9 12 months ago

    Most alt translites are indeed pretty bad.

    The worst? Without a doubt, it's that "dirty" version of Flintstones.

    Quoted from xeneize:

    Despite being horribly crass and tasteless, it's one of the better executed ones from a technical standpoint.

    #11 12 months ago

    I like the flintstones one.
    And i like the congo one posted here but would not put it in the game

    #12 12 months ago

    The Congo alternate is about as bad as it comes. Irrelevant to the subject matter and also eliminates the proper use of the backbox flasher in the medallion at the bottom center of the translite.

    They Congo kne is easily the best becuase its so nonsensical.
    If thats the beat, it should tell yiu aboot the others.

    Shadow & Genisis/Metropolis comes to mind first.

    oh, easy one...[quoted image]

    I mean, that's the best looking one in this thread so far.

    #16 12 months ago

    I would have to say that the original Genesis translight is so bad that the alt looks better.

    #17 12 months ago

    This thread would be much shorter by naming the GOOD
    Alternate translites.

    Aurich Shadow.
    2 of the DW alternates are pretty good.

    i actually like the OP's ac/dc illustration. not for a pinball machine, by any means. but as an arcade decoration, it's pretty rad.

    The word "rad". Just laughing because you must be half my age. Carry on.

    Well, I don't know about all that--but after a couple of beers and watching several balls spin around the supercharger at mach 1--this T-lite actually makes sense.

    I haven't seen the alt, but the original is horrid.

    #22 12 months ago

    Hey I appreciate the opposite sex, but doing this to an innocent game show pin is pretty bad..

    #23 12 months ago

    I have this one on my tron. I like it better then the original.

    lol i made that as a joke (that's so raven)

    #25 12 months ago

    I'm surprised, but I'm sort of liking the Congo one. I loke the voyeurs in the background, makes it funny.

    I know it was joke. I thought it was very clever so I had to include it for fun.

    #27 12 months ago

    Most of the Baywatch one's are really bad. I doubt Pam was paid.

    The Aurich, “Helen” AC/DC was very good looked better than the Luci translite.

    #29 12 months ago

    I've only seen a few I enjoy, I have the red/black Spiderman one and I think its WAY better than the original.

    good one

    Basically any of the adult themed replacements on Ministry of Pinball. And that Flintstones one is absolutely abhorrent. It's a kids cartoon.

    The guy in the upper corner is a nice touch, although I don't remember him being in the film...

    Except it wasn't. It was original made for adults. Its inly in reruns thst it was geared to kids.

    Probably not, but it fits the theme of the thread regardless who you are voting for. Very bad translight.

    [quoted image]

    This is really hard. Give you a down vote for posting that horrid shit.
    Or upvote for ugliest translight?

    #43 12 months ago

    I know of a horrendous translite I saw once at a show. But since everyone on this thread has mutant pinball mind-reading powers and are able to automatically see the image in their minds exactly as if I posted it here, I will just skip attaching a pic. Now that you see it in your mind, isn’t it ridiculous!? What was the artist thinking?
    I mean seriously, right?

    I love mutant powers - such a time saver. No googling and saves 3 mouse clicks.

    (... but still, thanks to those attaching a pic for the differently-abled, non-powered among us - sorry I’m just to busy to do this one so maybe someone else could attach this one for me thanks)

    #44 12 months ago

    That’s an easy one, almost every alternate translite sucks!

    Brian Allens work is an amazing example.
    His artwork is very well done, however it doesn’t fit the style of the machine at all IMO and really detracts the overall package...

    #45 12 months ago
    Quoted from RyanStl:

    Hey man, no matter your politics. That sucks.

    It is really well done though. Great details. Putin with shares and a gun. Obama in a tux. Hillary laughing maniacally like a bond villian

    I really like the baywatch backglass that added shades to Hoff

    you look pretty good for 94!

    Just Google 'Alternate pinball translite" for some real shockers.

    I like my SFII and T2 Alts /shrug

    those retro refurb ones are mostly all pretty bad. Theres a t2 one thats particularly horrendous. I always will give actual hand drawn art ones more of a pass than any of the photoshop art ones however.
