    makes the playfield look like 2D and it's printed on black velvet with black lights.

    #3857 3 months ago

    Do these look a lot worse in pictures than in person? I just can’t understand how someone could look at that in person and say, “Yeah, that looks right.”

    Pics of them look worse no doubt, but don't fret, they look like shit in person too.

    #3859 3 months ago

    I don't know. That EFTLW I posted above looked just like the picture. The previous owner thought it looked great.

    #3860 3 months ago

    yes. well the guy that I bought EFTLW from thought it looked good too, but you couldn't see shit on it. I think people that do this, don't actually play the games, they just stand 15 feet back and look at them on. They have to, because nobody , I mean NOBODY can play a game in a somewhat dark room.

    I'm my early days, I played games on location with these kinds lights on them. At the time, I thought I just sucked really bad. It was because I was basically flipping blind. You cannot see anything when you have lights other than some form of white on the playfield. I remember playing a purpled out TAF and didn't know any better. It's already a very dark game with Comet 2SMD white lights. It was pretty much unplayable with purple everywhere.

    its great on location, you can't see, you don't know better, you drop coins even faster.

    More like, you cant see, your ball times are short, you walk away.

    There were other locations that had better lit machines. If you have a variety of OPs, you learn quickly which machines play well and which don't.

    No it's not beautiful in person. Any one who is a decent player knows this makes it harder to play, harder to follow the ball and strains your eyes.

    Its hideous congratulations.

    I like that he snuck his weak high score into the picture as a subtle brag as well. Might be able to break 3b if you could actually see the table!

    Uh, I literally am mid restoration. I’ve played maybe 10 games. I’m sure I’d kick your ass at it. Really. Bring your pacifier and blankie, son.

    Really though, despite what all of you say, it’s beautiful in person. It’s not hard to play. It doesn’t give me migraines. It’s more subdued in person, and it’s brighter and more pronounced than original. Say what you will, to each their own.

    I guess you guys aren’t putting LED bulbs in your 1979 Ford Pintos? Ha ha....

    Thanks, ha ha. I’ll admit that I was anti-LED rainbow vomit on my machine prior to this. My TZ is mostly incandescent. This may have moved me toward LED. The difference is undeniable. More vibrant, better overall visibility. However, I think LED OCD is almost a must. I used non-ghosting and still there is some noticeable jitter. So it goes...

    It looks like shit. Straight up. If you dont agree your in the wrong club thread.

    Its trash and I'd pay you less for it as you have downgraded it.

    Maybe you're missing the point of my post. I'm simply stating that pictures don't do a good job at representing what a machine looks like in person. The picture makes it look very washed out, when in person, it's not that way. It's over saturated in the picture. Again, not that way in person.

    It doesn't look like shit in person. I'm sure you'll disagree, as you seem to be that type. I'll leave it at that! =)

    Maybe your missing the point. This is a club for people who dont like rainbow GI.
    It looks like shit. I've played at many different locations and houses over the years. Yes it looks like crap. Yes it makes it harder to play.
    Yes your a idiot for coming to this thread trying to promote color gi.
    Do us a favor there is a drain thread button use it so we dont have to see your shitty taste in LEDs. I've had over 250 machines many I've had to take color gi out of.

    I've hosted league nights and tournaments and color gi is one of the biggest complaints of good players.

    Go to replay fx the biggest tounament in the world with the best players and you wont see any color gi.

    You obviously like to look at your games more then play them.

    Once again it does look like shit and always will.
    I'm sure you with your 2 years in the hobby and 4 machines will disagree because you think you are right but sorry your not.

    I've added your pic again so everyone in this club can laugh at it some more.

    Also I must have missed the star trek episode with the purple ships. Which episode was that again? Oh ya none of them because it would just be dumb.

    sorry but i've tried to play on these games in person, and they do not look beautiful if you need to play the game. If you stand 15 ft away and never play it, wipe it off with a diaper every 2 months, then lighting like this is ok.

    it really never is ok, because someone is going to buy that game down the road and have to fix the bullshit. So even if you don't have play the piles of shit. Someone somewhere is going to have to fix your crap.

    For your utmost pleasure, here are 2 pins I made.
    FH turned out more colored that I had imagined, first time I was using a premade set, and last one. Was a bit worried when I saw the color list.
    For the Farfalla, game itself is a Rainbow puke, so I went "f*** it, let's go for it!"

    in all fairness to farfalla, it looks as though the playfield was done in white. Hard to tell with all the glare from the BG.

    You do NOT want bright LED's in the backbox. You want the backbox as dark as possible to reduce glare. Most backglasses that have individual bulbs in the backbox, you can get away with having only 7 or 8 incandescent bulbs back there. Still can see the BG fine and glare is reduced by 83% or more. On new spike systems where it's adjustable, I set all mine on about 8%.

    Yeah, sure, if you want to play pinball. Who wants to do that? I'm after colorful works of art!

    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    On new spike systems where it's adjustable, I set all mine on about 8%.

    This is a great feature. They even allow you to set the brightness differently for gameplay and attract mode. For games on location, I leave the attract mode at 100%, but turn down gameplay to 10%, so it dims way down once someone starts playing.
