Hi Friends...

So, I've tried so many different brands of LED lamps and eventually I even went with Cointaker. They all ghost just as bad on my Elvis and Ripleys. Cointaker claims their Leds do not ghost but they surely do. After 1.5 years I feel like throwing good money after bad down a rathole...

What do I do ? Is Comet the way to go and in that case, what do they do different ? Cointakers advertise their lamps do not ghost as does Comet.

Will considering the LED OCD board solve my problems ?

All input highly appreciated...

Led ocd rocks. I’ve had two of them In games over the years, very noticeable difference.

I couldn’t even imagine what kinda mess my spiderman would be without it! It uses variable dimming,

Yup the led ocd boards are night and day difference . I’ve added a few to a couple of trons.

LEDOCD is the only thing that worked in my RCT (Whitestar), well worth it.

Will it still kick up the usual LED brightness using LED OCD ??

Just moved my LED OCD from Nascar to High Roller Casino. Works great on both!

Brightness is the same.

I stick with incandescent bulbs in my older machines, with an occasional changing LED tossed in here and there...but that's just me

I had led ocd on my f-14 tomcat as well, and it looked spectacular.

Please post what LEDs are in the game. Make sure they are non ghosting and SMD. Twin smd will be brightest.

LEDOCD in my LOTR rocks! I have it in other games, too.

If you want, modern lighting in an older game, this is the ONLY way to go!
