Just picked this up as my first pin and I couldn't be happier. I'll likely sink a little money into LED's, mirror blades, and a new translite. Any tips on getting one made, or is anyone currently offering custom translites?

Has anyone dropped the outlane posts to the bottom position? I did last night, and I feel a little dirty doing so. This is my first machine, and i'm still struggling to reach 50mil. Tough game for sure...

Simple mod that I'm pretty happy with. Really lights up the area under the upper playfield

I would be interested as well. Let us know...

Quoted from BC_Gambit:Does this friend have a paypal account

I am sure others are interested, I understand if there is not a financial interest in making more.

Let us know

Quoted from boagman:

Now, ON TO THE SCOLDING! Do you honestly mean to tell me that you took off the *entire upper playfield* and didn't bother to change the bumper area rubber from black to white?

Hah, honestly I suppose it didn't occur to me to change those. I just put the whites up on top and didn't notice a heck of a lot of difference honestly. This is my first pin, so maybe i'm not noticing subtleties yet...

I purchased the LED pop bumpers from pinball life. I think if I did it again, I may have gone with another color. There is a small set screw to adjust brightness. I was surprised to find out they were already only at about half power (very bright!)

I have my WPT sitting next to Metallica Pro. It ended up looking downright dark in there, even with LED's. I decided to add two spotlights on the slings, and man what a difference. The center display looks a little washed out from the picture, but it's still plenty bright.

Easy mod if anyone is looking to brighten up the center playfield.

Got my topper...

Very nice.

Still wish I could get my hands on the artwork for that alt translite!

It's so well done...

Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:

Did you go with the cointaker double leds for GI on this one? Just like Stern does on the newer games?
If yes do you have any additional pics?
Having the new stern led games, all the older looks quite dark. I like somehow factory and things being consistant on my machines.

I'm still experimenting with different LED's in the spotlights. I added one more spotlight on the right side for a total of three. I might actually do a combo of double and single. I felt the same way, it just seemed so dark sitting next to metallica. You'll be happy with this easy mod if you feel the same way. It looks great. They all turn off during flop/turn/river animations with the rest of the GI.

Quoted from danczaz:

DO you have a "before" picture... would love to see before and after in same photo setting

I'll unplug the spotlights and do a before/after. It's tough to see in the pictures.

Quoted from pinball_keefer:

TBH I think the World Championship is way more (too much) work.
Hurryups are easy if you take them when you light them instead of letting the ball drain off the pf. In general it will also be a lot less than 25 of them since the base value goes up by 100K each successful one.
If you ignore hurryups too much though, the countdown penalty becomes really brutal (hurryups count down faster every one you start regardless if it was a successful collect or not).

I agree. I go for the hurry ups, especially if I can't lock a ball and my cut the cards is re-lit. Additionally, I don't find the pops as dangerous as others seem too. Perhaps nuances from game to game.

Here are pics with and without the new spotlights. In person, the difference seems even more dramatic. It's not for everyone, but I can't believe how much I like it. It's breathing new life into the machine that was being shadowed by my only other machine (Met Pro).
