    Quoted from 72Devilz:

    Why do you care anyway, it's not for sale and it's going in my game room not yours. Seriously with all due respect get over it, man!

    I think it's more of trying to understand the people behind these abominations and wonder how they cannot see it for themselves how terrible this shit looks.

    Fair enough, the problem with judging by picture is that the phone totally exaggerated the color. I was going to post the picture of my machine in this thread because the phone just blows out all the color and makes it look like “shit”. For what it’s worth It does looks a hell of a lot better in person.

    exaggerated or not, most of us that see this crap, have seen it in person. And it always looks like shit. the picture might distribute the color washing farther out, but I can tell you from experience of the 100's i've tried to play on, that I couldn't see a god damn thing on any of them, when I tried to play it. You can't. Unless you are playing at noon, outside on a sunny day, where natural room light is so bright, it overides that lack of GI light.

    Maybe...but it still won't even look close to good. That's a nightmare of color clash going on.

    Quoted from LesManley:

    Why do you care? You got a free game, congrats to you! You got it up and running which is even more admirable. I personally just think the end result with the color bombing is unfortunate that's all and that's what this thread is about...color gi fails.

    I can live with that, and my lite brite!

    Quoted from jboner1058:

    I’m not hating on people but for real I don’t think the objective is to blind yourself when looking at the flippers

    Makes it easier to hit the ball because once you look into the light you see at least double the flippers due to the negative afterimage burned into your eyes!

    Colored inserts aren't the worst things in the world.

    This on the other hand...

    Quoted from FatPanda:

    Colored inserts aren't the worst things in the world.

    They aren't if there is some connection or meaning behind doing it that way. Coloring white inserts to different colors that have no association to the insert is ugly and pointless...like in that Demo Man pic. What association does green or red have with any of those modes? Other big offenders are modes in STTNG, let's make Time Warp mode insert green and Q pink...just because. Or the characters in LOTR. Gimli is blue, Borromir green, Legolas pink. Why? Now when it is used to make a connection like the character inserts in Spiderman (green for goblin, yellow for sandman, etc.) or Dark Knight or the villains in X-Men, it can look great...because it looks like it should have been that way from the start.

    That second picture is just straight up embarrassing. I had no idea what game it was even until I read the title of the image.

    #2869 1 year ago

    I would only use it for color matching inserts. If the insert is white, then I match it with the GI (which will be warm or natural).

    I wasn't aware that those DemoMan inserts were supposed to be white. In that case...

    one exception is TWD, I have the walker kill (crosshair) inserts as red, instead of white, because every insert on that game is white.

    Quoted from tamoore:

    Not as much as colored GI but like lesmanley said, it has nothing to do with the game.

    #2872 1 year ago

    The only time I’ve ever seen colored GI work effectively is the teal/green 1smd frosted in the path of the dead on LOTR.

    A few aren't the worst, but I can't stand the mixing colors in a row of lights like presented. Blue insert River letters on wh20, fine. 1 green, blue, red, orange.... Not so much

    Quoted from mrossman5:

    see this isn't really a big deal. If you want to add some color to normally a boring white insert. it's not a big deal, as long as the insert isn't printed with color. If it's printed with color, then it just looks like mush. But inserts don't illuminate any playing area. So you are not making it impossible to see the ball, nor are you destroying any visual art in the surrounding area. It's one of the few creative lighting things you can get away with and not completely make your game look like complete ass.

    I respectfully disagree. This is a great example of complete ass IMHO. Which would you want? LOTR or random circus sideshow LOTR?

    Probably making Dave Christensen puke right about now....It was Old Chicago when it had the warm glow if incandescents, pale yellow and violet pastel paint colors. This guy should rename his game Puke Chicago.

    I said "can" get away with it. But you have to fit the theme as well. In CV, this works great. In LOTR, not at all.

    This one I don’t get. Color selection makes no sense to me. Green totally drowns out all the detail in the alien, and blue kills the playfield and plastics. And SI has excellent artwork.

    Before you click, grab a bucket...

    Totally agree, as a former SI owner I couldn't even take white LEDs. Classics like this need that warm filament glow.

    Freddy actually has somewhat of an interesting story I researched lately. It seems when Gottlieb/Premier released it in 1994, it was fucking horrible.

    Spoilers?
