    Some of you guys should learn to meditate. It's great for your blood pressure. This turned from a harmless fun thread into something else. Lighten up. This is supposed to be a fun hobby.

    My BSD has a little touch of blue...and the beloved speaker lights everyone is raving...I mean ranting about. LOL. And nooooo! That's not lighted flipper buttons is it? Rip away fellas!!!

    This looks bad and you should feel bad.

    #1006 1 year ago

    "I have working incandescent lights if you decide LED lighting isn't for you (although the improvement when switched to LEDs is mindblowing.)"

    Does mindblowing in this case mean "awesome"? Surely he can't mean that.

    I agree.

    We should resume posting pictures of the clown puke games in all their hideous glory.

    Stop wrangling with the Day-Glo Gang.

    Usually I'd argue that Bride of Pinbot gets purp'd the most, but man, BSD is making a hard charge for all-time worst.

    Not colorful or bright enough. Doesn't pop.

    You can still make out some of the original artwork.

    Keep trying.

    You have to give the guy credit, he manned up and posted pictures of his CP-ed game.

    Technically, he contributed to the thread.

    The other CPers are just complaining about their hurty feels and shaking their finger at us like grandma.

    On a side note, i nominate this translite for the worst ever. It's both senseless and hideous, olympic class clown regurgitation.

    So did this guy.

    He posted pictures of clown puke into a clown puke thread.

    I like the bumpus hounds reference.

    Well, Colson, they're either on the bus or they ain't. You know what I mean? The Electric Kool-aide Acid Bus continues the trip regardless.

    Agreed. And we're trying to explain to them the color puking is like dressing their beautiful baby up like a filthy whore and posting pictures of them online.

    So you have never given a compliment just to be nice?

    #1021 1 year ago
    Quoted from cosmokramer:

    So you have never given a compliment just to be nice?

    I figured you'd probably say that.

    My main point could be lost in the murk. A mod like lighted legs is not my thing, but there is a market for it, and there's a crowd out there that loves this sort of thing. They're eating it up. AFMr with the topper was so extremely bright I couldn't even play it.....Yet there was a line formed up behind it. Same with Aerosmith loaded with Pinstadium lights. Those games killed my eyes. Maybe I'm just weird. I like the darkness of incandescent, sometimes a little color GI, and I also thought Alien was awesome in it's semi darkness.

    #1022 1 year ago

    Holy crap this was a busy day in this thread. We sored past 1000 posts thanks to the tasteless (or color blind?) trolls.

    I have to go back and do a few replies. Colson, you are a good dude but the BSD just does not set the mood for a vampire game. A molly soaked rave maybe. I just sold my pretty damn nice BSD after removing a bit of puke for $2,300 to a nice guy who won't make the same error. He likes how it "plays".

    My biggest thought to the defenders of "I do what I want to my game" is this - Todd T. pushing a junker off a building. Now I know it is not as reversible as CP. But when the argument is you can do what you want to a game and sell to who you want this is the ultimate statement. He did what he wanted and sold to none because he wanted to do it and took years worth of thousands of posts about it. And I respect him more than the CP crowd by giving it peace.

    Wow that just sets the mood. For what? I don't know. Not for pinball or the show. Still has the florescent tube behind the translight. This is just one of those dorks who does not know how to play or repair a game so is only accomplishment is to change a light bulb.

    Where is Ted? He might pay to have this person hurt. Unless of course it is his game, then it shows what the good tequila can do to judgment.

    I did put the LED Skull Pile in the back of mine. I'll admit that. But wow.

    #1033 1 year ago
    Quoted from Taxman:

    I'm not sure if your serious or fishing. Do you know the story of the avatar?

    Either way it's false. Popeye is better than Gilligan's Island and Hurricane for sure. I would rather have a Popeye than other games like Party Zone and T2 as well. Popeye gets a worse rap than it deserves because it's hard, people don't like the weird theme...and many people have never really played one but heard someone say it's bad so it's bad.

    People on here couldn't hurt my feelings if they tried. In all reality, by BSD isn't rainbow clown puked. There's no purple, green, red, magenta, orange, etc. And in more reality, as others have said earlier in the thread, my BSD in person really is not as ridiculously blue as the pics make it out to be. I have cool white in there, and the pop LED rings make the entire upper PF, which is commonly extraordinarily dark on this title, very white and illuminated. You can see all of the awesome artwork up there, that even with incandescents, is usually dark and hidden.

    Quoted from PoMC:

    You honestly don't care about the blue rings of glare on the glass?

    Honestly man, it's the angle of the photo. When you're standing in front of the flippers playing, you don't even see the reflection of the speaker lights. From 6-10 feet back taking a pic, you do. Even so, it wouldn't bother me. They are over the upper PF corner plastics, nowhere near anywhere the ball is in play during the game. And mine pulse like a heartbeat, which is very vampiresque (at least from a human prey perspective).

    And in person, it does mimic a vampire game to the tee. The blue's at the lower PF give it kind of a "misty" look, and for a game with Mist multiball...it fits just fine. To each their own. If I ever sell it, somebody can bulb it as they please. It takes under an hour to customize it to your liking. When someone visits my house, I get compliments on it all the time...whether it's a 20 year old baller, or a 65 year old purist. So :p.

    #1035 1 year ago
    Quoted from kvan99:

    Which pic F-14 or IM? Also can you post link to ad? Maybe it's a fellow Pinsider.

    The IM

    There's literally hundreds of examples everywhere you look. Why would someone go to the trouble to 'doctor' one up?

    #1036 1 year ago

    Lol...holy shit, forget the bulbs man, I have to join Kiji just to screw with this guy for his $7500 price tag.

    #1037 1 year ago

    IM doesn't look like that with LEDs, it looks like this. People are changing the photos and using really bad examples.

    Simpsons has a little too much purply-red thing for my taste. I think the translite on Pirates is great. Wise move in at least keeping the slings white. In my opinion, even with color GI I always leave the flipper area white. Firepower II, I dunno...It needs some help, and puke isn't helping. Zip-A-Doo I would leave incandescent, as well as any other EM.

    #1041 1 year ago

    That pirates translite is awesome...

    LOL

    You went back over two years of my posts to find that.

    Get a life, dude. Wipe your cheeto covered fingers on your pants and go find a job.

    I would say that the green clock housing does not match the game very well, it does sort of look out of place. But when the game is on, it looks more yellow than green. Probably blue or red would be a better color.

    My CV is actually clown puked in the respect that it is full of super bright GI LEDs that hurt your eyes. I bought it that way. I need to change them out.

    #1045 1 year ago

    This lethal weapon is a prime example of "true" clown puking.

    There is an art to puking a game.

    To really puke up a game, the translite has to look completely bizarre and the entire playfield must glow with a haze of color, preferably pink or purple.

    Geez, you are not nice.

    I think that is what other people were talking about earlier in the thread...you can bash clown puked games or render your opinion on whether you like it or not, but personal attacks continuing? Come on man. I thought this thread was all in good fun.

    And that LW3 does look horrendous.

    #1048 1 year ago

    I like the CP'd games that are so washed out you can't even tell what game it is. You actually have to squint to find a few clues to help you out.
