    That translite looks so horrible.

    they put a red bulb behind elton to make his red shirt "pop" with color.

    so now his whole head is red too. it looks absolutely horrible. how can anyone defend this stupidity?

    there are no doubt places in a pinball game where a clever person could use a colored bulb to improve the look of the game

    but when you put a red bulb in the translite and elton turns into a demon, then you take the bulb back out and say, "That didn't work too good."

    see how they put a purple bulb in the bottom of elton's pinball machine, it's a GI socket so there's this big stupid looking blob of purple that doesn't match the shape of the artwork. pure suckage.

    The nice thing about clown puke is that it's so over the top and hideous that it's easy to point out the flaws to the new guys.

    If it was more subdued, it would be harder to explain the awfulness

    you can post up the original art and the puked art side by side and the dreadfulness of the puke is unmistakable.

    #2055 6 years ago

    It's awful.

    Clown pukers, just be honest and admit that you like awfulness.

    Some people love a meal of circus peanuts washed down with icy cold lashings of Meisterbrau. That's fine, just be man enough to admit it's disgusting.

    I totally agree that some people usage of colour LEDs is dispicable and totally disrespectful of the original artists work but why are we (irobot) getting so in depth on specific bulb placement and obsessing over telling everyone about how awful it is. Cant we all just upload images and laugh??

    I say, old top, why not critique it in detail and describe its various permutations of awfulness?

    Because i do think there a limit to which you can critique a light bulb.

    We used to think there were limits. But they have become stretch goals.

    There is a whole new level of stupid we never thought possible.

    Is it real or is it comedy?

    #2064 6 years ago

    and the fact that the greatest offenders are very very slow learners. So you have to repeat yourself many many times.

    those are actually pretty handy. If you are doing something in the kitchen in the dark. Filling a glass, cleaning a plate off, it actually works well. Plus they are battery free. the one I had, had a little turbine in it, so when the water passed through, it would create the energy for the light.

    #2074 6 years ago

    I would be the last guy on earth to buy that shower head.

    My father was a huge fan of gizmos. He was actually a very intelligent guy, but he bought the most stupid crap.

    I learned early in life to hate gizmos, they're either completely pointless, solving some non existent problem, or it's just cheap junk with some "fancy features" to attract the eye of the consumers. Or both.

    You ever notice how it's hard to find anything that is actually built to last, but it's easy to find cheap gizmo crap? There's a lesson in there somewhere.

    You buy a new faucet at Home Depot, the chrome is freckling off after 3 years. But they have a shower head with an LED in it.

    #2075 6 years ago
    Quoted from irobot:

    "fancy features"

    I hear you... My life is complicated enough with electronics at work and home, electronic computers, tablets, smartphones, and of course - pinball machines. I want simple featureless appliances in my home. Like refrigerators that keep my beer cold without internet, a clothes washer and dryer with about 2 settings is perfect. It seems everything has to be crammed with a hundred buttons, lights, and options. Most of the extra fluff does nothing for me - and is often just more to break.

    Colored LED's are not for everyone. I find them better than a bright cool white on most games as long as they are done in a way that do not wash out the plastics or other colors. The Bright cool whites blind me and make it harder to play. I guess to each there own. Good news is if you don't like it and it's your game its easy to fix.

    Unless you buy one of those new games or remakes where you don't really have a choice.

    At this Time, Stern's GI and CGC's Gi are all replaceable. Stern with off the shelf LED's and CGC with Nifty's plug-in style LED's.

    Will incandecents work?
    If only the insert lights were replaceable too.

    Nope but Retro type LED lights will work. Incandescents pull too much current. I would think that would be a very bad thing to try and use them in a modern game.

    Maybe instead of invisiglass, the next big thing in pinball will be diffuser glass.

    The more I see this thread the more I understand how badly it is playing clown puked pins.

    Here is a fantastic FirePuke in all his blinding (for real) glittering awesomeness.
    I notice the owner probably mixed Jack*Bot color scheme with this (red/blue sides) and made things even worse.

    Yet another case of blowing the playability aspect of clown puking some games way out of proportion with these pics. Try turning some overhead light on. My Taxi with white in the GI is a dark ass pin to play in a pitch black room, as it basically has an empty hole of darkness in the middle of the playfield. At least they had the sense to use white LEDs in the GI by the flippers. I'd rather play the one on the right going by these pictures.

    even the one on the right has the GI's done correctly. All the colors are just lens flare from the camera from the inserts. Colors in inserts is all good. Nothing wrong with either picture in that example.

    I guess you are right - I didn't catch it. That's once again a problem with taking decent pics of lighted games, especially in the dark. The same game, with room lights:

    How can anyone defend this clown puking of games?

    It's AWFUL. And it's pointless and stupid, it looks like the work of a child.

    Just picture screwing up a translite with green bulbs like this and then standing back and saying, "Yup! Nailed it! Lookin good!"

    And many people do....and guess what. - none of them are reading this thead! You say the same things over and over to nobody who cares. It's awful to you, sure...but it's not awful to them. Just stop getting so angry and post some pics.
