    I am sure this has been brought up before but while looking at all those LED decked out machines on Art's cool contest thread just got me thinking.

    Flash "first machine with background sound"
    Checkpoint "first machine with DMD"

    Although not a first, shouldn't there be a PF with Title of having the most playfield inserts per square inch of playfield surface. Not counting GI. or would that matter?

    Do you think a note worthy title to be added to the AWESOME ipdb?

    Stern Orbitor 1 has no plywood playfield. The playfield is all back lit plastic. O.K.,, maybe that is not what you wanted.

    Most flash bulbs... f-14?

    #4 8 years ago

    Stern 24 is an insert lover's paradise. Kevin O'Connor must have have been handcuffed when he did the artwork on that game.

    Looks like a bunch of guesses to me! Let's see now F-14 most Flashers that is interesting. How Many?

    Quoted from Darcy:

    Stern Orbitor

    Yeah that is just the weirdest.

    Lot of lights for sure need a Woz count.

    #8 8 years ago

    Is that the fact Jack?

    #9 8 years ago

    Just counted them... F14 has 24 flashers. Hell of a light show.

    #10 8 years ago

    Very cool ! Yeah I loved that game haven't played in like forever. My Millionaire has some but not that many.
    24 on pf or total?

    #11 8 years ago

    4 of them are in the backbox. The rest are on our under the playfield.

    #12 8 years ago

    Spectrum has a minimum of 84 insert lights in the playfield. Are there any other pins that even come close to this amount?

    #13 8 years ago

    Spectrum, use two lamp driver boards if I recall!

    From previous discussions on RGP I believe Cactus Jack has the most.

    Hyperball has a 64 lamp matrix and a 32 lamp matrix so 96 controlled lamps, with most of them in the pf.

    #15 8 years ago

    Cactus Jack appears to be the winner. There seems to be more than 94 inserts in the playfield.

    #16 8 years ago

    Ok who has one?

    Cactus Jack.
    picture with it in all lamps test mode please. Likely to start a fire.

    IPDB Hyperball is not a pin so can't count it.

    Hyperball wins. If memory serves, when I LED'd mine it was 150 red Ablazes and a handfull of flashers on the PF only..

    #18 8 years ago

    Bah missed the 'can't count it', reply went in as I was typing mine.

    #19 8 years ago

    Hyperball has 89 controlled lamps, including the ones in the backbox.

    An 8x8 matrix and an 8x4 matrix with 7 unused positions.

    #20 8 years ago

    It makes sense that it has a lot, but IPDB has it listed as Not a Pinball so it can not have the title.

    IPDB is right. It is not really a pinball machine. It is more of a shooting game. The one I have played is kind of loud. The balls returning to the shooter and the loading mech for the shooter were louder than the game sounds.
