    Looks great! Still want to own a DM at some point. Love the flow, love the sounds. A pretty darn good Dennis Nordman pin, great bang for the buck.

    You're making me wanna give LEDs for GI another chance. I didn't like them in Radical or BR, so never tried with DM. Maybe I was using the wrong type or color in my previous attempts.

    What you've done there looks pretty good!

    Yep. Coin taker frosted 44's for the GI is a win for demo man. It's very hard to capture it well in photos.

    I bought a bunch of LED's from Cointaker at the Texas show to do my Demo Man with. This was my first LED project and man what a difference it made. It looks so much brighter and colorful and it just pops now. I am on the LED train all the way now! I don't have any pics yet because I'm not quite finished (had to order a few more bulbs).
    By the way BR I found a DW and supposed to pick it up Saturday. It will be getting the LED treatment as well

    Has Anyone installed the Profanity rom's in DM ? At http://www.actionpinball.com/roms.htm
    it say's to do the Profanity rom change , I Will have to

    Quote : The profanity sound ROMs consist of 8 chips (U2 through U9) on the sound board.

    The profanity ROMs must be used with one of the home version game ROMs (CPU board) in order for the profanity feature to work. Available home ROM versions are H-5 and H-6. : Quote

    You should use coin taker super brights for all your inserts. Use flex super brights for your inserts where the bulb is sideways. Demo man has several of these. Color match the led color to the insert color. Except use white led on yellow. The yellows aren't bright enough.

    For the arm and under the back ramp use frosted red bulbs. For GI use frosted 44s. Blue, red, and white. I prefer cool white to warm white in every case.

    For the backglass use frosted white 555's.

    Warm white looks *way* better under yellow inserts imo.

    I got them a few months back from John Wart and it comes with the game rom H-6 and U-2 - U-9 sound chips. It just makes the game more entertaining.

    If you buy them I would suggest getting them at That Pinball Place, way cheaper at $65.00.

    It does have regular buttons on the cabinet like any other game, so you have the option. I don't care for the handles myself, but others that play the game seem to enjoy them. There are some bonuses to be had by using the thumb buttons on the handles though.

    Is some F'ing the Only diff ?

    Pretty much, I didn't notice a difference in the lighting effects. There is an added DMD animation or two during the modes. The one that comes to mind is when Sly says Sh**, it animates the little ticket machine like in the movie. Mostly just swear words and funny quotes from the movie, like Sandra saying "You really licked his ass" instead of "kicked"

    Thanks, Markmon. I'll definitely follow your advice when I do this. Going to order the LEDs on Friday.

    Question on these. Cointaker has the Super Brights and then the MINI's. Is there really that great a difference between them, as I know they are double the price.

    Thanks

    Yes, the Super's are crazy bright; the minis have a more tolerable light level in darker rooms, but don't pop as much as the supers

    BR, if I'm not badly mistaken, if you look in the picture right above the one of the plastic, it goes on top of that post right behind the scoop. Mine is not currently on there because after I shopped mine I could not find where it went. After I realized where it went I said forget it, I'll do it next shop out because it's under the ramp and you can't really even see it anyway.

    Action76 is correct for the placement of that plastic.

    Demo Man looks amazing with LEDs. It's the first machine that I did that way, and it looks better than regular bulbs.

    As for the swear roms, if you need to upgrade your regular game code, it's worth it. Mine had some sort of really early code on it that had like half the game missing, it was incredibly bad. Got the profanity roms and the gameplay doesn't suck. But, beyond that, they are sort of funny the first few times and then that's basically where it ends for me. If you find naughty words really funny, then they're by far the best out there, but otherwise it doesn't add enough to the game that I'd suggest doing it for the price they cost.

    The flipper handles are neat I think. They help a lot in nudging, and people who would never nudge other games nudge a bunch on DM. I think they attract players too, as DM earns all right on route, and for a game with a crap theme and basically no "instant see" toys that is almost 20 years old and no one remembers, I think that gimmick is what makes people drop their quarters in it still today.

    I have a love / hate relationship with the game. The scoring on it is totally screwed up so the only thing that makes sense with the claw if playing for points is Lock Freeze, Lock Freeze, Lock Freeze, Lock Freeze, etc... but, it's oddly the one game that I have no issue not playing for points, and instead playing for as many combos as possible, or just because it "feels" good, or whatever. Mine won't be going anywhere anytime soon, although I'll be the first to tell you that it is horribly flawed as a title. It's just darn fun to shoot.

    Not sure if it would work with yours because of the rest of the blue on the playfield (mine is "cool white" LEDs), but I think that the Cyro Claw looks infinitely better with blue lights instead of red ones. Matches the "cyro" theme better, I think.

    Just a thought... looks good!
