    Can this be used on GI in games like CFTBL and CV to fix the flickering in GI dimming? I prefer the inserts stay as-is with LEDs (instant on-off) but for the GI the dimming flickers too much.

    Quoted from swampfire:

    If it's controlled by the lamp matrix, yes. I was wondering this myself for a JM I'm working on - seems like almost ALL of the GI is controlled.

    It's not in the regular lamp matrix, the circuits are actually listed under the solenoid table.

    Starting to think my only option to beat this dimming problem is to yank my LEDs from GI and go back to incandescent. I didn't mind doing it for CV, but I really like cool white LEDs in CFTBL...

    I'm going to try the Optiflux in my CFTBL dimming GI. I found a video on YouTube, it looks good, although the camera or YouTube may hide the flickering. I'll let you know how it works out.

    Here's the verdict:

    Optiflux is a flop for GI dimming. I wouldn't recommend buying these for a machine with dimming, unless your eyes can't see flickering (and if so, why are you spending extra to buy these?).

    I posted a high speed video of how they look in my CFTBL compared with Cointaker and incandescent. Looks about the same as Cointaker, for a higher price. The only good thing I can say is they don't ghost like Cointakers do (you can see it in the CREATURE letters at the top, R and E are Optiflux). I'm hoping the vendor is at least classy about taking them back.

    Does anyone have experience with Noflix? Are those any better in this situation? The shipping is a bit too much for me to experiment with those.

    Quoted from Crash:

    Since you have a High Speed camera ever thought about doing some gameplay?
    ยป YouTube video

    My camera only gives me about 5 seconds of high speed per shot.
