Quoted from Apex:

You are assuming that you can't simply move the screw and rewire to locate the yoppsicles better for use under star rollovers. However, I use the flex head leds from comet at star rollovers.

I'm not assuming. That's why I'm asking in this community!

I have installed them under star rollovers several times. It does require a new mounting hole and crating a jumper for the hookup, but it’s not hard to do. I also saw someone in the community that made an additional jumper and placed 2 on each star rollover, one on each side of the switch, to make them extra bright.

I've used the on star rollovers just fine. Little tight but no big deal

Im redoing a Meteor and have some of these for the PF but thinking I may change out the back-box lights too. What would be the best one for illuminating the BG without looking like a super bright, out of place LED?

What I do on my backboxes is only place about 1/3 of the LEDs in strategic positions. In other words, I leave 2/3's of the sockets empty. I used to be able to find some really dim LED for dirt cheap, but those are hard to find in the warm white flavor these days. Since then I've found placing 1/3 bulbs then cutting out small squares of black electrical tape and placing them on the tips of the brighter LED's tends to disperse the light outward nicely overall. If you place them in the right spots (behind a face or some roaring tiger, things like that) you can create this nice effect of highlighting the better aspects of a back glass. Also in some spots I will throw in a colored bulb to tone down the brightness some and for added coloring effect on things like lettering. This has an added side effect of really knocking down the amount of glare you get on the PF glass due to an overly bright back box. You can SEE the playfield better, especially at the top.

Here is a prime example of one of my machines with toned down light. Notice how well you can see the playfield even with the PF glass in place-

So I just had a customer reach out to me and say they are having issues with the sticks installed in a Baby Pac Man. I'm wholly unfamiliar with this particular machine. I've asked what lamp driver board it has and what the sticks are doing and waiting to hear back. But also wanted to put it out to the larger community for any feedback. Does anyone know if there is anything different about that particular machine that may cause issues? They specifically stated it's not a 6803.

Thanks.

Baby Pac-Man (1982) was the first Bally to use the dual phase feature lamp setup that was later implemented on all Bally 6803 games. It's also used on Grand Slam (1983) and Granny and the Gators (1984).

I put LEDs from Comet in a Bally Grand Slam without issue. Not sure why your LED boards would be any different?

I bought 100 warm white a while ago for my restored Eight Ball and another current restoration project. Tired of dealing with the flakey sockets in Eight Ball, I finally got around to replacing them yesterday. WOW! In a happy camper!
