    i'd think the glow in the dark wouldn't work at all while playing. Unless you have bright room lights on for awhile. and have colored LED's in your GI's. Because then it's so dark you can't see shit anyway. You won't be able to see the ball, but you sure the hell can see all the rubber on the field

    Quoted from pinheadpierre:

    Looking through the filtered thread linked by atari_daze the look Iā€™m going for seems like a combination of glow rings and UV or blue general illumination. I wonder if I went with glow rings plus UV leds behind the rings if the overall light would be too dim and purple? Maybe I could offset that while retaining the cool bluish ring glow with some diy stadium lighting set to a warm white but dimmed slightly?

    horrible idea. You never want to use anything but white in the GI sockets, or you will not be able to see anything. Using UV, would be the equivalent to using IR for Gi's. the game will be unplayable due to lack of visibility, and your art package will be destroyed. Only thing you could see would be the rubber rings.

    but VND has white GI's and uses outside florescent blacklights to use it's effect.
