    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    the ES looks pretty good as is.

    That's a combination of four men's work including myself. But it is f#$cking brite! The BK2K just came back after a few years gone. I'm playing the heck out of it trying not to notice.

    #1402 1 year ago

    as long as you keep the lights on in the room, i'm sure it's playable.

    #1403 1 year ago

    Between you talking me into it and me standing there looking at the masterpiece, I believe I will leave it as is at least until next year. And maybe beyond. Now I think I'll go play it.

    Quoted from doompin:

    Most games with LEDs don’t photograph well. I bet a lot of these games don’t look so terrible in person.

    My experience is, they generally DO look that bad, or even worse in person.

    How can the pro-puke guys see this kind of thing and think it's an improvement?

    And be confused and hurt by the fact that puke-haters think it looks like ass.

    Look at the translite. The art is completely ruined by random bulbs. The actress's face is glowing bright red.

    It looks like the work of a no-so-bright child.

    And yet the pro-puke people are astounded that anyone dare criticize it.

    #1410 1 year ago

    Now that I look at the art side by side, I take back my criticism of the enhanced game.

    Look at how the improved version TOTALLY POPS.

    If Antonio Salieri was alive today, he would try to put poison into the owner's glass of Chateau Lafite Rothschild.

    Quoted from irobot:

    Because they spent a lot of money and time on it?

    Quoted from o-din:

    Because they spent a lot of money and time on it?

    It's impossible to say that someone's taste in anything is "wrong".

    But are you genuinely bewildered and offended by the fact that some people find clown puke to be ugly and pointless?

    If someone put a purple colored bulb in a TAF to illuminate the staircase, you might like it or not like it, but at least it would have some sort of purpose and artistic merit.

    The purple light would sort of maybe fit the macabre theme of the game.

    But to make the entire game glow with random megawatt blobs of colors is completely pointless, it looks like the work of a child.

    I think that a lot of people are going to switch to white bulbs when the novelty of colored bulbs wears off, because clown puke is an extreme sort of fashion and extreme fashions have a lifespan.

    But we shall see.

    #1416 1 year ago

    Well, that is the source of the contentiousness in this thread.

    Offended bewilderment that anyone would dare to stoop so impossibly low as to criticize a purple glowing pinball game.

    I think it's probably going to get worse as tech evolves. Some new "laser blast ultra 4K quad shimmering holo rainbowglow device" or whatever new "light emitting thing" that comes out will be be the new rage.

    You literally seem like the only person hyperventilating from being offended here. Cmon man, light-(get it?)-en up!

    Take some deep breaths. Have fun and post some pics.

    I can no longer stand by and watch the international communist conspiracy sap and impurify our precious bodily fluids.

    And fill our pinball machines with glowing blobs of senseless color.

    Anything that shines light on that ghastly backboard decal is a bad thing.

    #1439 1 year ago

    even with full room lighting, trying to wash out the shitshow. it still looks like complete ass. That's how bad those LED's are. You practically have the sun shining on there and still looks horrible.

    guy had about 1/2 his lights on AND blacklights going. crazy. I told him all the cool kids play in the pure darkness.

    I told him I would buy it if he took off $600 for my LED extraction efforts.

    To be fair to him, I'm incredibly old and grouchy.

    $600 reduction in price is completely fair. Because you are going to have go and buy all white LED's to replace those. Probably 75-90 GI's in that game by the time your done including backbox. If you get 2smb's. I believe those are .80 each (give or take). Plus the time to have to take them all off, if the GI's are ground braid, then you have to pull all the ramps and everything. at least 8-14 hours worth of work, because if you have everything off, might as well clean it while you are at it.

    Exactly!!!

    Luckily rite aid now sells leds so shipping isn’t an issue.

    You’re a little off. T2 has 492 GI’s. I checked the black and white manual today.

    impossible. Even if you counted the lamp matrix there wouldn't be 492.
