    Here’s my old one which is LEDd correctly.

    You sir, are an example to follow!

    You know it's bad when the best part is the fluorescent bulb in the translite.
    [quoted image][quoted image]

    well in all fairness. NOT being able to play X-files is actually the advantage here. This is the only game i'd say it's ok to puke out, because nobody wants to play it anyway.

    That looks great. IF, i was ever inclined to play x-files ever again, it would be that one.

    Quoted from Saltimbanco:

    Thanks! It’s always fun seeing the difference after replacing everything with white. It’s so much easier than figuring out which blinding colors to put where.

    After owning it for a while, I’d have to agree. I wanted to like it SO much because I am a huge fan of the show, but it was a pretty big disappointment. What really got me were the callouts (or lack there of). They made literally no sense. When you start multiball, the callout is “I’m special agent Mulder with the FBI”. Like, why?

    That show was so good, wasn't it? At least you have those great memories, lol, and that translite with Gillian Anderson.. even today, she's a stunner!

    yes the show was great. The pin is one of the worst. Just like street fighter 2. One of the best arcades around. The pin is beyond horrible.

    Quoted from 27dnast:

    Black Hole also looks great with some well placed ice blue on the upper playfield

    I am definitely for moderation with LEDs but shit if I don't love how my Black Hole came out when I decided to go full-tilt blue. (High Speed? Inserts only. Incandescent everywhere else.)

    Call it morbid curiosity, but what does your shuttle look like?

    LOL - I appreciate your suspicion. All incandescent except the inserts. She's a beauty. That spare washing machine back there is pretty sweet too

    Have you considered adding some LED under cabinet lighting to that old washing machine?

    I was thinking more Pastel Man. Maybe a playfield mod with various pastel colors of yarn in a wicker basket would look lovely.

    I like this actually, the apron theme and colors match the 'Nasa' design, etc.. shouldn't be posted here!

    Is purple the new blue?

    Quoted from Jason43:

    Is purple the new blue?

    This being the 'worst color GI fails' topic, doesn't really matter what is purple and what is blue, does it? And any massive use of GI doesn't mean the end result is bad, IMO. That Space Shuttle, I like! It makes sense and it balances well with the theme. My brain doesn't tell me to puke it, tells me I'd like to play it!

    Thanks for the kind words. This machine has been a labor of love for me for over 20 years now. And my goal was to brighten it up so you could actually see it from space, yet not blind the player or the people gathered around to watch the game. This Thread has been a helpful guide for me, for what not to do. Keep Flippin.

    A tad on the blue and purple side of things but not that bad..
    However, FirePuker would be a great name for a cornerstone! FirePuker PRO, FirePuker Premium, FirePuker Extra Chunky SE..

    The Pro would just be a Dry Heaver, not an actual FirePuker. Stern would definitely charge extra for the puke.
