    Seriously, I don't understand why there is so much contentiousness in this thread.

    If you paid me $1,000 for each pro-clown-puke argument I could come up with, the best thing I would be able to come up with would be:

    "Well, it doesn't actually hurt the game and yes, people got carried away with the LEDs, and the games look like crap, but it's their property so leave them alone, it's unfriendly to criticize people."

    That's about it. That's not an aesthetic argument, it's a social argument.

    What other argument can you make in favor of clown puke?

    Take that Hook pin for example. To plug several super bright red bulbs behind a character who is wearing a red coat so that the character glows completely red from head to toe is ABSURD.

    Are you going to pretend that there was some sort of high-minded artistic philosophy or deep emotion behind it?

    Here's the philosophy:

    "Put a red bulb behind a red character to make it "pop" even if the bulb color bleeds all over the artwork and washes everything out. More light and color is always better."

    How can you be mad at someone for daring to dislike this senseless and tacky distortion of the game's artwork?

    Quoted from irobot:

    How can you be mad at someone

    Nobody is mad at you.

    Most just seem amused at how much light-bulbs are triggering a grown man.

    All the pro-rainbow guys keep trying to express to me how amused they are by my foolishness. Gee whiz, that stings!

    Wouldn't it be great if we could all meet together in person?

    Then everyone could express their scorn for me without this pesky anonymity to water down their message.

    I'm sure everyone would step right up to the plate, their eyes red with LED burn and their moobs jiggling with indignation.

    #1511 1 year ago

    That Corvette pin is awesome.

    Finally someone goes for orange GI instead of purple.

    Why play boring old Corvette when you can play Citrus Heat Lamp Vette?

    #1512 1 year ago

    One of the reasons why I read this thread is because of the funny puke pictures. That Cramer pic is hilarious.

    Your obsessive triggering over light bulbs is simply funny. No scorn or hate in saying that. You make me (and others) giggle.

    I'd gladly say that to you in person. Why wouldn't I? Would you physically attack someone for saying that you bring a smile to the faces of many? Seems like misplaced hostility.

    The person throwing the most anonymous venom into the ether is staring back at you in the mirror.

    Maybe, just like, go away. Everybody would be better for that. All you do is troll, which is against the Pinside TOS anyway. If people were actually crying, you would be reported, but honestly, you're just annoying.

    And the only people that cried to mods were purpers. Imagine that. And you want to accuse people of being overly sensitive.

    haunted house is hard enough to see with normal bulbs. Might as well unplug the GI's if you are going to use anything except white. Because the game being off will illuminate the playfield the same way as color light would.

    Lol. I got a Jack*Bot and was in the middle of setting up the left=blue and right=red “thing”, then I saw some pics and man... that’s disgusting and really looks crap. Reverted back immediately

    #1517 1 year ago

    I find the venomous disgust funny, meanwhile the pukers are laughing all the way to the bank.

    doesn't mean the shit is selling. And most things don't sell for the price asked. A lot is talked down before the deal is closed.

    I'm seeing a lot selling, and for some big prices. Perhaps the buyer of that Firepower is going to rip out those LEDs and sell them for about $400, because $1700 is the most that game is worth with empty bulb sockets.

    Nobody can dispute that clown puke is taking over the hobby.

    The vendors are all selling puke kits, not 'original incandescent look" kits.

    But this too could pass eventually.

    Recall that leisure suits were once the hottest new thing.

    It all starts with the people that are doing the clown puking.

    First you were laughing, now you're yawning. That's neato.

    This isn't a troll thread. It's long overdue.

    The clown puking of a pinball game completely changes the look of the game.

    Anything that makes such a huge difference in appearance is bound to be disliked by a certain percentage of the collecting community.

    Why is that idea so impossible for people to accept?

    Why do you care so much?

    Why are you even in this thread attacking people?

    This thread is payback for me....use to be dozens of emails a day..."How do I LED my game?"

    Reply with a discussion on white bulbs, how to use, and a link with info.

    Then the reply, "But I want to use Purple, Blue, or red, in my GI, not white...why dont you recommend that?"

    and I'd answer, they'd reply and my life became this thread.

    I gave up.

    I said "Read, or do as you wish". "But Purple is BETTER!" Why?, "I read it!" OK, do it! Back and forth!!

    Still, the arguments came....for me now, seeing the pictures, and the posts now from the sidelines on a subject I dare
    not breach in business, is a Joy beyond words!!!

    Thank you for all posts and pictures!

    I like this thread because I think it's an overdue conversation.

    A lot of times a guy will post up pictures of a clown puked game and everyone will offer polite praise.

    I'm sitting there reading this praise like

    I couldn't figure out what was on the apron until I finally realized that it was chrome. Those BSM's are way too nice to screw up with a shitty LED job like that.

    It had the original boards, but I put an Altek in it. It had lots of problems. But instead of fixing those issues, the machine got puked before repairs.
