Quoted from djb_rh:
So anyone got a film to go over an LED that they really think helps? And a pointer on where to buy?
I've had ColorDMD in a bunch of games and I'm sure I've just gotten used to it, but so far I like it better by a tad than the LED I just put in my TronLE. That's based on purely comparing the look of the display itself (usually like XL mode on the ColorDMD). The LED now seems a tad harsh to me, even playing with contrast and brightness. I feel like a physical diffuser might help.
But I'm going to keep the LED in the TronLE *and* convert a colorDMD in my Metallica to LED because of the form factor. I have animated backbox kits in both machines and the LCD creates a shadow on the bottom 3/4" of the back glass that's very obvious. It's a bit smaller and a LOT less obvious on IronMan simply because of the backglass art, so I'm leaving that one DMD.
But on my other Bally/Williams games where the backbox art isn't compromised, I'll be staying DMD.
I used the anti-glare film from comet on my ColorDMD LED on SMVE. I imagine the one from pinball life would work just as well. Helps cut some of the LED intensity and I can play without the bent plastic.
