    The rest ok, but IM looks fine. Lots of cool white, and you can see the translite and PF artwork just fine. I imagine the ball too, unless you're blind. Maybe take a few of the reds out.

    I know. So right. Look, this pin is not known for the artwork. But it is a good shooter pin with not too difficult to understand defined shots and rules.

    There is no reason to Glitter and Glam a freakin Dirty Harry pin. You are not setting a "Dirty Harry" mood.

    #1554 1 year ago

    Well, in all fairness to whoever puked that Spiderman up above....it does say GREEN Goblin, so the game was literally begging for green puke there.

    Yeah, so does that insane asking price on the apron. Probably still for sale to this day at that price. I did'nt ask near that for mine and it was pristine, huo and documented.

    You know the clown puke is bad when you look at the game and can't immediately tell what game it is.

    And there are so many of them here.

    Absolutely nothing. It's not about theme integration or even being able to play it for that matter.

    I've played so many puked games that don't even play properly.

    I bought a Taxi recently, all puked up but the ramps were all broken, the drop targets didn't register, it needed a flipper rebuild and was dirty.

    The fact that someone would spend the time and money to jam a bunch of LEDs in it and not fix the game to play properly says it all for the clown puking 'movement'.

    The difference is it takes skill and knowledge to be able to fix a game, and not everybody possesses those. A monkey could put bulbs in a game.

    no it's not. there is more than one solid color of green in that area. There is plastic art, there is playfield art.

    that's not the point at all. It's just to make you aware how shitty stuff like this looks. When you think it looks good...it does not. It's a reality check thread. When you ask yourself questions like. Why isn't my game selling? answer could be. (colored LED's in the GI's). Why are people making sarcastic comments on my FS thread? Answer could be (colored LED's in the GI's). When people are playing and say they can't see shit on that game. (the answer probably is colored GI's). When someone says, dude...this game sucks you should sell it. It's probably because it has colored LED's in the GI's and looks and plays like shit.

    #1568 1 year ago

    I've never had a problem selling any game with LEDs in it, cool white or color. I'm sure most of the people posting in this thread haven't either. If any comment is made, I'm happy to hand them a bag of incandescent bulbs I keep in a bucket out in my garage, or even the new packs that I have laying around.

    And going into somebody's for sale thread and making snarky comments about the game they are trying to sell, or saying that it looks like shit, is in bad taste in my opinion. Whether you like it or not, you shouldn't potentially inhibit somebody's ability to sell their game. We already have the price police here that chime in, and that's bad enough.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled LED misery…

    #1569 1 year ago

    when a game sits and sits and sits. Someone has to say something on why it's probably not selling. better for the seller and everyone. He's not happy his game is not selling and probably doesn't know why. So either has to change it and have the game show better, or lower the price to where someone doesn't care they have to do a bunch of work to it when they get home.

    You restore playfields and you think that changing light bulbs is a lot of work? That doesn’t even make sense lol. You’re a cool guy NEO, don’t become a broken record like iRobot.

    #1571 1 year ago

    restoring playfields makes me money. If i'm paying going rate for a game, I don't want to spend 4 or 5 hours changing bulbs over. It does take work. I have games I have yet to take apart to change things over after I got them. Because I don't have the time to do it. Now if i'm getting the game dirt cheap. I don't care. I'll get to it eventually, but that time lost is time I could be working on stuff and making money, which always has priority over my "free" time.

    If someone wants their game to be completely blue, have at it. Its their property.

    We can point and laugh in good fun but there are some here who think they are going to change peoples personal taste...And that, is pure awesomeness to witness.

    to the science, on how light reflects off of printed color and translucent color. How your retina, and how that image is portrayed. How it visually is picked up by the human eye. And all the art elements lost when using a single color vs white spectrum (which has all the colors)

    I think changing the bulbs to your liking and personal taste is fun. I don’t like the real dark colored LED’s myself but some of these games with a hint of green or whatever color here and there look great and they are very tastefully done.......Colsand’s Vampire game for example and Pinfactory2000 had some nice examples as well. I think a little bit of color gives certain games character. It’s much better than a bland looking all white light game IMO.

    #1575 1 year ago

    GI's for me consist of a big pile of sunlight comet 2smbs. Then start taking the game apart and replacing everything.

    Color bulbs are only used under black or white printed inserts. Other than that, they never get used.

    Not always.

    On Congo, its all Sunlight, other than 3 Ice Blue in Pops, with appropriate Caps.

    The common thing to do with the GI on this game, is to add Green to the GI under the Green Plastic Art.
    So, I tried all 15 plus bulbs, and none looked right. The best I could get was a prototype light Green I made, with
    Sunlight washing out the edges and that looked OK.

    Sure, your game, do whatever you want, but if all the games we are talking about were designed for incandescent,
    improving just that and only that does work......sometimes it doesnt.

    I have games with Sunlight in GI, but a few Incandescent left, simply because it looks better. The plastic screening
    wasnt thick enough.

    In this thread, we arent even addressing repro plastics, overhead lighting, etc.

    I received an email 2 days ago of a game with colored GI, the Pinsider wasnt happy, so that added a white LED
    strip source around the cabinet inside. Now he was happy, because the white light washed out the Colored GI.
    A long way around for a solution.

    I completely understand what Neo is saying. The problem is, clown pukers don't give a shit what Neo says or thinks. If they think the bottom of their BSD looks good glowing f'ing blue, that's all that matters.

    Yes. I've said it a million times. It's your game, do what you want to it. But I will also be brutally honest with you if you ask me what I think. Same goes with Skittle colored trim and making every portion of your game glow with some kind of LED kit.

    Crack is popular also.

    If it is in your home and I have never been to your home then why am I looking at it and laughing?

    Oh, right, you put a picture on the internet and said things like "look what I did", "this is for sale" or "what do you think?".

    NOT ONCE Does that article give any reference to coloured LED bulbs being wrong and old school yellow lights being correct for lighting pinball machines. It is an article about absorbing colours and how your eye perceives light. Where does it say ANYTHING about how using coloured led's is wrong? Derp

    My gamer son got an RGB illuminated keyboard and mouse for Christmas, and I helped him install RGB strips along his walls. It's a rainbow pukers room, but not Dad's games!
