    Quoted from jar155:

    So much careful thought put into those LED choices!

    Tigers are now red!

    Quoted from jar155:

    and the irony of it all, is that the CORRECT way to do it, doesn't involve any choices or thoughts at all. Just grab a huge handful of daylight white, and go nuts.

    Quoted from jar155:

    I'm at Texas Pinball Festival. They really like their colored LEDs here and it's awful. I'll take a hunch of shame pics today.

    You should have found the owners while you were there and said something to them face to face...oh wait, you probably are just confrontational behind your keyboard.

    He was going to to but everyone is such a badass there they'll just kick all your teeth out.
    Also, most likely the owners either know they look like shit, or don't care.

    Ah ok. Boy you made a hell of a difference. Looks really good imo.

    #2665 1 year ago

    I used to drink coffee in the morning to keep me regular, now I just come here and look at the pics for a good bowel movement.

    I actually like the lighting on this one. The GI's are actually stock from Spooky. Tron, too much - too much.

    #2672 1 year ago

    Another puked game with stock scores on the high score board. Good job never actually playing your disasterpieces, purpers.

    Crazy lighting just like his concerts

    I'm not trying to follow a small steel ball bearing around at his concerts. Can't compare the 2.

    there is crazing lighting at a ZZ top concert as well, doesn't mean I want my headlights on a classic roadster to be red.

    It was meant to be humorous, that's all.

    Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

    On the "bright side" ("see" what I did there...and there too? )...lighting like that on Zombie makes it harder to see what is arguably some of the worst playfield art in modern game history.

    #2679 1 year ago

    More red.

    That's gottlieb Tag Team, and has 2 sets of GI, one of them being red for a multiball mode.
    Like I believe Bally Atlantis has 2 sets one in blue?

    Yeah, one of my buddies had one and I got to play it. Really neat actually because you didn’t see it much. It might just be the camera but it seems way more redder than I remember.

    Atlantis factory multiball color is red. Neo customized his by changing it to blue, perhaps that is what you were thinking of.

    #2687 1 year ago

    Seriously...these people must be colorblind. Or they had a grab bag of LEDs and just said f*ck it. Cuz that's what it looks like.

    #2688 1 year ago

    I have never seen a machine in person that is saturated with color LEDs in the GI. In photos it looks like there is so much bright color, that there is almost a haze over the play field. Is it like this when you are standing in front of one of these machines? And can you even make out the artwork on the play field?

    #2689 1 year ago

    The haze is from a dirty (fingerprint) phone camera lens. More often than not, colored GI makes it very difficult to see the ball, as the light isn't very good at brightening things up.

    Not only is it an aesthetic atrocity, it is terribly nonfunctional as well.

    Quoted from mcclad:

    Colored GI no haze. Colored Pinstadium lights looks more like these pics in person.

    #2692 1 year ago

    Where is the ball??

    I bought a Flash as my first machine from someone 1.5 years ago. All but 2-3 GI bulbs were red or blue. Decided to undo most of this with some bulbs I had on hand for a paused project. Before and after pics below. Don’t think I mind the natural white in this game as much as I thought I would. Thoughts?

    Definitely looks a lot better than it was.

    almost there. Pull the rest of the blues out and it will look even better.
