Quoted from futurepinhead:
Because their placement was specifically designed to be put in a particular spot. Or their plastics might be darker and allow for more light to be projected out the sides vs bleeding through.
Thats one very good point.
Because of this, we have, (and will be releasing more in a few weeks), 12 brightness levels of bulbs.
One brightness everywhere can be OK, but in some games, more is needed in dark areas, and less is needed in others, hence the OPs post, and the one above.
Of course, after this is done to one persons taste, the next person may not see the same game the same way.
20 year old eyes, vs 55 year old eyes, ambient lighting, etc...
Many of the emails I get are from people changing just the GI out, on an LED game, they have bought...
They are fine with the inserts, and OK with the Backbox, but the GI lighting, Hergs Board, much of the discussion,
is about GI. Knowing, by trying, whether your yes are better with Incandescent, all frosted, or the 2 SMD in a New Stern, is all personal, and an easy fix to ones taste.
I find that this discussion is among the top when discussing LEDs....
Is this what is bothering you Joe? The General Illumination?
