    Quoted from PoMC:

    Get those standup target decals for your Frankenstein. I had them on mine and they look great - way too many blank white standups on Frank.

    I've seen them before, and the standups are definitely a little bland. I'll take a look at them.

    Not GI, but think how much money was spent for this backbox kit to make the game look terrible.

    Yeah, those backbox kits are rough, man. Not a fan of those at all.

    While everyone else is fighting about lighting, can I please get some info on this Pharroah? I saw it mentioned that this is an alternate BG. This thing looks amazing.

    I'm not a fan either and it doesn't make sense when it cycles through all the colors while at the same time washing out the artwork.

    Quoted from wayout440:

    Relax, Maken. Its just pinball. I don't play tournaments, but at the ones I have seen there has always been plenty of overhead light to supplement any game play. Colored GI has never posed a problem for me as far as playing is concerned. I was just commenting on these blanket statements saying *all* colored GI is impossible to play. That's pure BS for the casual player. Which is probably a large percentage of the folks here and even larger outside of this site.
    Its one thing to dislike puked games because of how they look. Some I don't like, some I do. Aesthetically, I don't care for even white LEDs in some classic games. But there's been comments that my puked games were unplayable...and that's simply not true.

    As the biggest clown puke hater on pinside, I think the argument about play-ability of colored GI is irrelevant.

    If the guy wants to squint while he's playing or play with the overhead lights on, whatever, who cares? It's his game.

    The issue at hand here is personal taste in art.

    It's impossible to argue about taste in art. BUT you CAN have your own OPINION of what you like or don't like.

    Prior to this thread, a guy would take his pin and put random bulbs in the backbox and purple bulbs in the GI and then post up pictures on pinside and everyone would politely compliment the game.

    No matter how awful and brain-dead the game looked, everyone would politely golf clap like it was a big improvement.

    Finally there is this thread where a handful of people are saying that they think it looks horrible.

    The people who are saying it looks horrible are not doing it out of malice, they actually think that the games look horrible. That's not a big stretch, if you look at the pictures in this thread, you can see that the games do indeed look like pure crap.

    Some clown puke people are outraged that this thread exists and are trolling it under the smoke screen of arguing some thoughtful point.

    That's basically where we're at: some like the light bulb rainbow of random dumbness, some don't. Lots of hurty feel-feels over it.

    Personally, I really love pinball art and I think it's some of the most epic commercial art ever produced. My dislike of clown puke comes from my appreciation of pinball art.

    There's something really sad about washing away all that epicness behind a purple haze of dumbness.

    This translite is awesome, maybe it deserves better treatment than the colored bulb syndrome.

    I disagree with you on multiple points. Where you are vocal you might not be the biggest hater.

    Quoted from irobot:

    I think the argument about play-ability of colored GI is irrelevant..... BUT you CAN have your own OPINION of what you like or don't like...

    Agreed. I have a Comet here at work that already had white LEDs behind the backglass and I don't even care for that... I kept my Comet at home with incandescent because I think the art looks better with the spread of the light from standard bulbs vs.the focused light of LEDs. I put warm frosted white LEDs behind the translite of Maverick, as I would never put colored bulbs behind photograph. Many of the examples posted out here are horrible. I don't think there's any better way to light that CV art with anything but white, as it has a crazy amount of colors to begin with. IMO, of course.

    Some people obsess over light bulbs in a pin, sitting in a basement, far far away while others just couldn't care less.

    #2214 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    Yeah, that looks horrible. You can barely see any of the artwork or the true color palette. And Frank is a colorful game. Mine with cool white and some added cool white spots.

    Since we are all in a safe place where opinions of all types are welcome...Let me be the first to say that dear lord, at least put warm whites in that beautiful game! Looks like the lighting inside of my refrigerator. (lets see how tolerant this crew really is to differing opinions)

    On a scale from the Titanic to 9/11, how terrible are these?

    Awful. Just Awful. (resized).jpg

    Oh god no. (resized).jpg

    Pictures courtesy of a person selling LED conversion kits on eBay. The real kicker is the warning that's posted in the listing. It reads: "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."

    I agree. You shouldn't look directly at the lights under the plastics or behind the backglass.

    Hard to say without a single light on in that room but to get to catastrophic levels of lens flare they need more purple bulbs for sure.

    #2218 1 year ago

    Yes, definitely 11s there. No amount of ambient or overhead light could make these anything but a pinball crime.

    If you keep it to comments about the games, fine. I don't care if you call my games shit or not. I'm the one who buys, sells, keeps, or plays my games and loads up whatever bulbs I want. Those that stray into comments about Pinsiders will get whatever is coming to them.

    Thanks for putting me in the same group as Colsond though, he's a pretty cool guy and a guy that i don't mind being compared too!

    I haven't even been giving hardly any thumb down votes either that i know of? Maybe a couple to irobot here or there because he says the same things over and over and over again day after day after day.

    I do think its hilarious though that i am stuck in your head as bad as i am especially in a thread that i find so stupid and boring that i wont even participate in anymore. The good news though Jar is if you keep having these thoughts of Who Dey running through your head uncontrollably that there is help avaliable for you. Good luck Buddy and if i can be of any help to you please dont hesitate to let me know.

    Thats pretty much exactly what i have done. I still pop in to laugh and smh at how silly you 3 or 4 grown men are acting though about colored LED's. I find it pretty comical but just not worthy of posting anything about it in the thread. Don't you think that your pinball knowledge is a little better than wasting it on a clown puke thread?

    #2230 1 year ago

    No thanks. I don't need any added blinding ramp lights, either.

    I like the way that the trolls to this thread declare that the thread is beneath them, as they fill up 45 pages with petty insults.

    And they insist that everyone else is "triggered" as they fill up 45 pages with petty insults.

    And they insist that everyone else is a hateful jerk as they fill up 45 pages with petty insults.

    And they insist that everyone else is a "basement dweller" as they fill up 45 pages with petty insults.

    Starting to see a pattern there?

    All because someone had the nerve to say that a pinball machine that's glowing bright purple looks bad.

    I can't say what i want to anyway without the moderators getting on me or ejecting me from the thread so why even bother? If i told you how i really felt i would get banned permanently from the thread and im not willing to give you that satisfaction.

    Quoted from jar155:

    Trolling is inaccurate. I've tried to participate in this thread as a member, a contributor and in a constructive and agreeable way. I have also disapproved of some of the personal attacks and antagonistic comments being made, and in turn responded poorly myself. I've still checked in here and there, both upvoting and downvoting as I would in any other thread.

    When a fellow Pinsider chimes in without me even posting and throws a random "go f$&@ yourself" without verbal or typed provocation, over a few measly downvotes (albeit downvotes because his posts were again attacking another Pinsider and their intellect) apparently the mods stepped in. That's what happens.

    The three or four main people that post here seem to want to have their own little gang, and that's fine if that's the case. Others coming in here, like me, think some of these games look horrible (which is why I clicked on this thread in the first place) and some of them don't look all that bad. But apparently those opinions and participation aren't welcome here.

    I got a call from a 20-year-old kid Sunday morning that needed help with his Elektra. Only game he has, but a cool game at that. When I arrived, it looked like a Smurf. Rather than call him a moron, an idiot, and push him away from the hobby, I gave him a handful of cool white 2SMD LEDs, and explained the benefit of removing some of the colored ones. If handling it that way makes me a bad person, then so be it.

    To be honest, I didn't really care what his game looked like or what bulbs he chose to put in. I just thought it was cool as hell that a 20-year-old kid had a pinball game, and he was really excited about it.

    why?

    what is so wrong with this topic?

    here we have a new fad where people are hugely changing the look of pinball games by putting colored bulbs in them.

    they're not changing the look a little bit, or doing some small enhancement, they are making the original game art disappear in a glow of LED light

    a lot of times the lighting is so random and goofy it looks like the work of a 5 year old.

    why would you expect that everyone would like this huge change?

    why are you outraged that some people don't like it?

    do you think that nobody should say so?

    seriously, look at the pictures in thread and ask yourself if everyone should politely praise them
