    Quoted from RobKnapp:

    One Note about LED's installed in Pinball Machines. Made by Bally or Williams. They all have attract mode settings for General Illumination for special effects during Attract Mode. If set to On you will get LED flicker in the Attract mode. I find this annoying. I set my machines to NO: Do Not dim the General Illumination. This setting can be found under A. ADJUSTMENTS MENU A.1 Standard Adjustments . Scroll to A.1 25 Allow Dim Illumination. Set to( No ). Page 1-26 in Operations Manual.

    This is an incorrect statement, they don't "all" have these settings. Williams System 11s do not.

    LEDs depends on the game. Inserts seem to benefit quite well. Sometimes in the GI looks good, sometimes incandescents just seem "right" All my games are a blend of both to some degree. For instance taxi's cab lanes look great accented with blue LEDs in the GI.

    Quoted from Dommer:

    are folks using frosted LEDs for the GI lighting? I've got it in on my pinbot and looks okay, though i'm still shopping it and most stuff is off the playfield.

    Yes, I did the PinBot "cliche" half red/half blue frosted in the GI. I always get compliments on how good that looks, all the inserts are still incandescent. Some folks even thought the playfied inserts were also LEDs but they're not.
