    Quoted from irobot:

    That's fine, but what percentage of pinball LED make-overs are plain white and what percent are clown puke?
    As incandescent bulbs are slowly phased out of existence, they will be replaced by what?
    The vendors only sell puke kits and they make no mention at all of doing your game in white.
    If you google the words "pinball LED" and look at the images, you will not see one single white LED make-over, all of the pictures are clown puke.
    The average guy who is doing his game with LEDs is ordering puke kits and loving everything about it.

    Of my 30 machines, almost all of them are white LED's. I toyed with puke early on, but abandoned it as it didn't take long to realize it was dumb.
    I'm not sure I can agree with your conclusion that when you don't have incandescent lamps, you'll jump with both feet into clown puking without seeing proper evidence of this. Even the kits I've bought from Cointaker have been MOSTLY white, with some color in areas that make some sense (like green under the green ramps).

    #2502 1 year ago

    One thing that has always interested me is how the average person's buying habits can be controlled by the vendors.

    For example, Edmunds.com announced that the average length of a car loan was 67 months. And nearly one in four new loans earlier this year was financed with a loan that lasted between 73 and 84 months.

    What does that tell you?

    Was there a crying need among the consumers for a ruinously expensive pickup truck or car, or did the car sellers simply tell the buyers that they needed a $70k pickup truck in order to be happy?

    Back when you were a teenager, did you say to your pals, "Gee whiz guys, I CAN'T WAIT to take out a giant 8 year loan on a depreciating asset! I'll never have any net worth! But I will have $3,000 heated leather power adjustable captains chairs in my $60,000 SUV! Wooooooooo!"

    Never make the mistake of thinking that the follower class works on logic. They follow orders and peer pressure is their god on earth.

    You wrote, "Well, since you all have stretched this nonsense out to 50 pages, might as well try to make it 51. Lol bump"
    Half the thread is people like you dumping on it.
    You stated that the thread was "nonsense" and that you're "laughing out loud".
    Now you claim that you're a supporter of the thread, your contemptuous and dismissive post is actually supporting the thread in the form of a bump.
    A bump to a 50 page thread that that has daily posts and doesn't need a bump.
    Okey dokey, whatever you say, pal.
    Here, let's try to prevent any more "confusion":
    non·sense

    noun: nonsense
    1. spoken or written words that have no meaning or make no sense.
    "he was talking absolute nonsense"
    •used to show strong disagreement.
    exclamation: nonsense
    2. foolish or unacceptable behavior.
    "put a stop to that nonsense, will you?"

    Have you been miserable your whole life or did it start when mommy and daddy didn't get you that pony?

    Regardless, I don't have the time or energy to waste on silly internet arguments. You win oh mighty keyboard warrior. I bow before your interweb prowess. Have a good day.

    Well, thanks for stopping by the thread with your insults and sneering. And your inability to frame a rational argument.

    You sure taught us all one whale of a lesson about being a good person and not being "miserable".

    The zombie cops are awesome. Night of the Color Bombed High Speed. I do have to say I am a little disappointed that the RPM inserts are still white though. Could have easily put some pink or purple LEDs in there to really make it pop.

    we were at a tournament this weekend in madison. And the TMNT they had on route, was done in all green. It was impossible to see anything. I had to hold my phone light over the machine, just so my buddy could play the game. It was impossible top lay without a flashlight involved. That's how shitty colored GI's really are.

    SHOOT THE PURPLE

    Quoted from jar155:

    SHOOT THE PURPLE

    on that game, it's one thing I could actually hit every time. I'd have a 100% shot success rate. First time ever. That is, if I had someone holding a flashlight by the flippers so I could actually see the ball and hit it once in awhile.

    #2541 1 year ago

    Does anyone else have a natural impulse to downvote all of the pics that everyone posts, as oppose to upvote? I know none of these are from anyone in this thread, but the urge is real!

    #2542 1 year ago

    Here's the Jurassic Park I just bought. It's a shame I need to tear it down just to replace the bulbs because it was recently shopped. I already started taking it apart even though I don't have enough white LEDs left for the GI. But I can't even track the ball because of all the blue LEDs. Probably would be easier playing with the GI unplugged from the board.

    I got tons of white LEDs I removed from the backboxes of the games I bought along with JP though, just not enough 44s. I was able to LED the inserts of NBAFB with all the 555 white LEDs from the backboxes.

    #2543 1 year ago

    Oh, here it is with the LEDs in the backbox before I removed them. I replaced with incandescents and I don't put one in every socket either so glare on the playfield is minimized.

    Must have been a girl T-Rex, because animals often have their corresponding gender colors associated with them. If you met me in real life, you can tell that I have a glowing blue aura around me.

    Why play boring old Jurassic Park, when you can play a game of fabulous new Purpleassic Park?

    Moronic Park?

    I like clown puked translites because they're an excellent showcase of the vile awfulness of the Clown Puke craze.

    This Star Trek one is probably the best clown puked translite I've seen. I mean best in the sense that the artwork is the least ruined by the colored LEDs.

    It looks like crap and the shading of the colors is washed away, but it's not the olympic level of hideous randomness that the usual puked translite is.

    #2550 1 year ago

    Actually this translite is a good showcase of why clown puke will never work with any trranslite.

    The colors in the original translite and the placement of the bulbs is about as good as you're going to get for the purpose of clown puking a game.

    But it still looks like day-glo electric stank ass

    The bulbs never match the color of the art and they wash away all the shading and detail.
