    I found that Demolition Man I played at PAGG that had black balls. It was REALLY hard to see the ball.

    How absolutely generic. Which one of your wives holds the current high score?

    Hey look out Utah jokes! A slight bit more amusing than your translites

    Your attempt at humor is sophomoric.

    Also, if you're going to accuse anybody of being generic, maybe pick an avatar and not use the absolute lamest username possible. Maybe try that. Maybe also try not to use the oldest and worn out joke available.

    Uff colored balls and goddamn flipper toppers (Uff I throw up a little bit in Pinstein's mouth even having to type that term) are pretty bad.

    Your both right, but you've both been jerks too. So dont expect any apologies.

    Hey, I caught a vision of how much better my game could look if only I made it POP with color.

    I can take a better pic of the AFM later. I don't generally take a lot of pics of my own games...

    I think they look good.

    I think that looks decent too...after all, it is Tron. But maybe the movie should be reshot with no illuminated light or neon effects too.

    As far as the Tron game goes I prefer it stock, except for the illuminated ramp mods. I'd have to have those... they relate to the movies well.

    It's sad how this thread is one of the best on pinside lately. It's like a blind speaking with a mute.
    I saw 2 of my old games on trial. I was kind of honored

    #1116 1 year ago
    Oh! You are wasting your time trying to be the Grammar and Spelling police here on Pinside. It has been discussed before elsewhere and the consensus appears to be that stupid people want to stay stupid.

    The one that always gets me is "alot". There is no such word. But there are the two words "a" and "lot".

    On a side note, I am always impressed that many of the people here on Pinside for which English is not their native language usually do a much better job typing English than many here in America.

    So, let's see some more Clown Puke so we can point out the error of their ways!

    Well since I'm the one being called stupid here, thanks 6 years of college, I can tell you it's more of a speed/bad typing thing thing for me. 60% of the time I accidentally use a semi colon instead of an apostrophe because I;m typing fast. And it doesn;t matter anyway.
    Plus, the fact you think you're "better" than someone else and having to teach them to be "smarter" is completely offensive.

    Now, let's get back to idiots that color their games like simpletons and tell them how they're having their fun wrong.

    Personally, I don't have any clown puke LE jobs, just as I wouldn't be caught dead riding a Huffy or My Little Pony girl's bicycle.

    But other members here are doing a great job displaying theirs.

    Though I do say if you are going to do something, you might as well go all out and do it right.

    Time for a new thread. We have to mix this thread with the Visual Quiz thread.

    If no one can guess what game it came from, there is something wrong. Take o-din's post. Here is 1/6 of the playfield -

    Quoted from AlexSMendes:

    So you can post other people "fails", but when someone post YOUR fail, that someone is a loser troll? Man-up baby boy, c'mon!

    You combed back through several years of my posts so you could find some random tidbit about me to criticize.

    Because of a meaningless quibble in a current thread.

    And you think that's not the act of a loser troll?

    Okey dokey.

    Quoted from Pinstein:

    If you feel your games need to be factory then your a member of the status quo and either just lack creativity or are too afraid your efforts would equal and epic fail. I dont want my blackout to look like every other blackout. I want it to look like MY blackout. If you think Ive insulted the playfield art then your the one thats overly sensitive. Viva la LED's!

    This guy wrote that if you don't like clown puke, then "your a member of the status quo and either just lack creativity or are too afraid your efforts would equal and epic fail."

    Back in the old days, I would have thought that this guy was kind of illiterate and unpleasant and trolling the thread.

    Maybe I would have even stepped far outside the bounds of human decency and cruelly told him to wipe the cheeto dust off his fingers.

    But now I see the all the good natured happy fun in his words.

    #1142 1 year ago

    I have white GI and just these CT twinkles in my upper lanes on Comet. Is it unacceptable color bombing because they are many different colors?.....or an interesting visual accent that personalizes my game from the other 8099 Comets that are out there?

    It's all subjective. One man's Blackout is another person day-glow abortion.

    Quoted from kvan99:

    I agree. What's old will be new again. LEDs are here to stay you old geezers. Get over it.

    As a fan of color bombing, do you ever find it distracting?

    I'm not trying to put you in the wrong, I'm just curious.

    The reason I ask is this: I got a free under-game LED kit with my CV and when installed it, it was VERY distracting.

    Forgetting about the aesthetic of it, it actually made the game hard to play because it was very bright and strobed very rapidly and it was hard to ignore as the color illuminated the arcade room.

    When I look at some of the ultra-bombed games, it seems to me that they would be hard to play, given the riot of color.

    #1146 1 year ago

    I use LEDs in most my games, but for GI, I will only use white LEDs. I color match inserts. LEDs are great, but putting color where color doesn't belong...that doesn't make the game pop. That makes the game look bad.

    I agree, because TWD Pro's all white GI's look so good don't they?

    Quoted from MikeTangoIndia:

    You guys keep saying it’s a “club thread” and it’s all in good fun. That’s great. It seems like a lot of these clown puke pics that have been posted are people’s current personal games. Are you guys going into their game room profiles and getting these pics out of their profiles? Yes some are just rando pics off of FB and eBay but some of these are directly out of people’s Pinside profiles. You make fun of them to a point of almost calling the owners stupid. Then you wonder why people are getting upset and defending themselves. How would you like it if someone started an OT club thread of stupid cities and states to live in. Then they targeted your personal city from your profile? You probably wouldn’t like it very much. But it would all be in good fun right??
    My point is let people do whatever the F$&@ they want!! Who cares!!! Seriously. rant over

    You saw what they did to me didn't you. Here I thought I was in good standing with other Pinside members.

    That's funny because to day is actually my 50th birthday. I was one of those that said LEDs look terrible. That's because the older LEDs that were out were terrible. Then about 2 years ago I bought my first pin with LEDs in it and was amazed at how nice it looked. And yes it had a few tasteful color LEDs in the GI.
