    Quoted from PoMC:

    You know, just three words can set you free.
    Focus. On. Yourself.

    Please, explain to me how I'm supposed to "Focus. On. Yourself." when I show up to a league night or tournament and I have to play one of these colour bombed disasters?

    To be clear, I don't care how awful (and most are) these clown puke games look. It's when I can't even properly track the ball it becomes an issue.

    I would hope that in a league or tournament you would have enough ambient room lighting to see the ball well. If you don't - that's probably something that should be taken up with the league organizer(s).

    This thread should be more about clown puke and less about admonishing people for not liking clown puke.

    Quoted from statictrance:

    From a 'hey it's clown puke but doesn't make any damn sense' perspective... Here's a swords of fury I picked up a few months back at a deep discount. All Backbox GI was changed to purple. The camera doesn't do it justice, but it looked ridiculous. They also used all regular LEDs in the inserts. fun times.
    Long story - but sadly this is directly from a famous (infamous?) local pinball repair shop like this. On top of the LED job, the drop targets started to go after a week of home play. Still a great deal for the price I got on it, but eesh.

    key words here are. DEEP DISCOUNT.

    This thread is to teach. to help people have a better understanding on making their games "show" better and help them sell their games quicker. Many of the games in this thread are FS threads on the FB forums. And they sit, and sit and sit. Threads like this, explain to them, it's their choices.

    I think a lot of the color bomb fans are going to eventually sour on it and end up using white GI lights closer to the original.

    Color bombing is a very dramatic "fashion statement" and such things have a history of growing tiresome and passe'.

    What are the odds of the bright red atlantis girls making it through the next 5 years without the lights beign swapped back to white?

    And just from a practical standpoint, some of the color bombing is distracting to game play.

    I think you have your accusations backwards. We've shown some pics and said, "this looks terrible." Then we've had a flood of apologists come in and cry about our opinions. Then somehow when we've doubled down on our "this looks terrible" statement, they've accused us of crying about bulbs after they've ran to mods and even Robin himself. I mean, what? If you're going to do something stupid to your game, and if you're going to "show off" that stupid decision, you shouldn't be all that surprised when someone calls it out.

    Anyone who makes a negative comment about a game glowing bright purple is a bad person.

    Don't waste your money. You can just get the cheap light bulbs that rotate from China. I got a case of them back when they were real cheap. We use them in my friends bars. You might get a couple of duds per case that burn out in a couple of weeks, but when cheap enough who cares.

    There's no bravery involved in writing anything anonymously on the internet. You might make a note of that.

    There is dislike for clown puke being expressed in this thread, mostly because it's genuinely awful.

    Which has caused some people to become offended and troll the thread. Such as you.

    That's what happens when people get used to getting a trophy for being in 11th place.

    A little honest feedback is seen as a stinging slap to the face.

    You are the second or third guy who tried to convince me that you're busting a gut with laughter over this thread.

    I guess that's supposed to be some sort of mighty burn. It would be if I was a 12 year old girl.

    well at $156, it's priced about what it needs to be when it looks this shitty.

    oh wait...that just for the LED's? I thought it was for the whole game. Whoever is selling this kit...if you know them, please give them a swift punch in the crotch. From each and every person they know in the pinball community. If you see him at a show. Please give a "take a bow" tap to the crotch as well.

    LOVE the disclaimer in the auction description!

    "Safety Warning: Super Bright Quad 4LED bulbs are exactly that, Super Bright, please do not look directly into the light without eye protection, or under playfield plastics, or behind the backglass. LED does not mean safer for the eyes. It does mean much brighter lights, far less energy consumption and far less heat inside the pinball machines."

    Good thing you never need to look at a playfield when you are playing pinball. If that doesn't tell you all you need to know about someone who would do this, I don't know what would.

    #1331 1 year ago

    Wow, I just went to the ebay listings. This menace is responsible for a lot of the worst pictures in this thread.

    I say we come up with a plan to call these people out IRL. Start with the shows. Whenever you go to a show bring a 1st-place Clown Puke multi colored ribbon. Let the owner see you and your friends taking pictures with their machine laughing.

    I know we are supposed to pick on the game and not the owner. But the games are not doing this to themselves. And this person is on ebay not Pinside.

    You really aren't anonymous just because you are hiding behind your computer screen. People can find you if they really want to bad enough. Thats why it's good practice to not say anything online that you wouldn't say to someone's face. The internet isn't as safe as some people may think.

    I don't think that's a good idea.

    I think the hobby of pin collecting would benefit if the subject of color bombing had less politeness and more honest discussion.

    This thread is a good thing, people can view the pictures and decide for themselves if they think color bombing is good or evil.

    But to attack people, especially in person, is a bad tactic. An argument based on malice is never persuasive, and it's counter productive.

    Wait...Are you actually trying to change peoples opinions on whether they should like LEDS in their pins or not?

    I totally misunderstood. I thought the thread was just for a good laugh (for a multitude of reasons its turning out).

    Anyway, good luck with it. I'm going to go start an honest thread about why brussel sprouts taste bad (even if they taste good to someone else they're clearly wrong).

    Quoted from Dee-Bow:

    honest question...how old are ya?

    54, why what's your issue? It is a joke. Lighten up Francis. Although at Pintastic I did put up pictures of beelzeboob around the show on "Not Wanted" posters. Picking on people is part of comradely, too many snowflakes these days.

    When you get older two thing might happen to you. The lighting crap can hurt (sorry, I can't change my age and the effects). And you learn to speak up for yourself and not follow the crowd. Just because the lemmings are following shiny objects does not mean you should walk off a cliff.

    These pictures show games that look horrible. The colors make no sense and it looks like it interferes with playing the game. Funny how playing pinball never get discussed by these people.

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT! +1 BILLION LEDs??? Arrrrgghhhh.

    Some people would never handle the way we harass each other in person. The TD from the tournament last night sent me a text today to make sure this "old man" survived. Then proceeded to tell me they did a second side tournament until wee hours of the morning after I left (as a dig that I couldn't hang). I usually just tell him his taste in games suck and make fun of his car.

    That's why I really wonder about the ones who came here and freaked out enough to send in "abuse reports" because we like the original look of a game and don't think everyone's mods are "the bee's knees" (look that one up).

    #1346 1 year ago

    My honest opinion is the LEDs if done correctly can make the game look a lot more up to date and newer. Especially with a game made in the 80s or 90s. The incandescent bulbs look dull, dim, old and blow all the time. Plus they are hot and can ruin your plastics and backglass. I'm definitely not a fan of the old cheap incandescent bulbs. The LEDs are like eye candy and bring the game to life. I also feel like I see more art work, because the playfield is brighter and can also see the ball better. I can't figure out why you want the old bulbs and I've read the entire forum.
    Just my opinion

    Francis, looks like you are going to have to spell it out for him.

    This thread is not about using LED's. It's about using colored LED's for GI's or backboxes. If they are not warm or cool white, they have no business being in a GI socket anywhere.

    If you check Ebay sold listings, not only are these $156 kits selling , but the color bombed games are as well. There will be no end to this madness. I can't believe there were 14 bids on this Comet.

    But hey, gives me something to chuckle over when seeing these people royally screw up a game.
