    Frosted domes. Uncovered or lensed led are pretty harsh.

    #4102 42 days ago
    Quoted from smcclain65:

    Do you only use the frosted in GI or do you use clear? I found them on comet website but was curious, I always thought you use frosted in GI since some of them you can see.

    frosted. As the frosting distributes light more evenly. it's like a diffuser

    #4103 42 days ago
    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I've never found any use for an LED that isn;t frosted.

    Mirrored electro mechanical games or early black and white mirrored arcade games.
    A good example would be the explosions on a game like Sea Wolf or the scope on a Sub game like UpScope.

    Something where you want it really bright because you only viewing a reflection of it through a two way mirror.

    Just saw this on CL. I have a pretty long fuse when it comes to this topic, but holy smokes. This Pin Bot would give me a headache!

    I've seen a lot of those pinbots decked out in red and blue. Reminds me of the ziplock bags my wife buys that the zipper turns purple when you seal them.

    Theory: Maybe people feel the need to match the GI to the coloring of the wires?

    Try that with a Gottlieb! "White with a trace of (color A) and a trace of (Color B)".

    #4111 37 days ago

    least with gottlieb wiring, they could color match white for everything since every wire is white. there's a chance they could not do them like a dumb asshole.

    #4112 37 days ago
    Quoted from Scrimmbo:

    Been getting a good laugh out of this thread. The guys I work for have been converting all of their older pins to leds, and while some of them don't look half bad, the others have been reaaaal ugly. My bosses think they look awesome though, so we keep banging them out, if any of them were mine they'd be going back to regular bulbs, or at least all white leds.
    PS: Any EM pin with an LED kit looks like shit!!!

    Preach it! I only stick warm white frosted LEDs in my EM to protect the paint and inserts from any further damage.

    #4113 37 days ago
    Quoted from hollywood:

    Do any of you guys still use the old bulbs? I only ask because I have quite a few boxes I would be interested in getting rid of.

    I have a bag of the ones I pulled from my Williams (1977) if anyone wants these.

    Man I made the puke mistake on a few games when led bulbs first surfaced ... All gone in the wasted money box..

    When I saw this Speakeasy, I knew it had to be rescued and fixed. So I did. Now, it’s getting sold back to its original owner.

    Quoted from LesManley:

    believe it or not. It actually has all the correct lights in it. THe problem is the room had a blue bulb illuminating the room that throws off being able to see anything. It was like playing a game in strip club lighting. Wasn't so bad when you stood in front of the game and blocked the room light from shining on the field.

    Yeah, that's the new color changing GI so at least there is an excuse there. Not that I am a fan of that, it looks ok on WOZ and Wonka due to the theme, but neon pink and purple don't do much for a medieval game.

    Here's one with no such excuse, a Rainbow Stones.

    At least it’s at the extremities. Still a crime. Just a misdemeanor vs a felony.

    Quoted from cjchand:

    So, seems we have to throw CGC into the club now?

    We already did long ago; the new games are fucking horrific. At least there's menu options to turn all their puke off.

    #4129 26 days ago

    so it can be turned off? Thank god for that. I don't know who thought it was a good idea to include that an an option. Do they not read these threads?

    #4130 26 days ago

    MB = hit dracula, all leds flash red. Hit creech everything turns green. I guess it might help a complete fucking idiot....thats deaf.
    So yes things like that you csn turn off.
    All those hypnotic shitty saucer rotating lights in AFM 8 don't know but I would assume you can.

    Quoted from Rager170:

    not at all. Most of us like to be able to actually see and play our games. There is only a small percentage that never play them and wipe them off with a diaper. Those are the color puke ones.

    And werent you just making fun of the new MM release and its color? This thread is far from just picking on people with overly colorful games. You were just making fun of a stock game lol. And im sure the makers wouldnt release it with a problem of not being able to see the ball or play the game correctly.

    I have, and it's annoying as all get out, to the point that I certainly won't put money into a game with colored GI or even press start on a game set to free play. It is objectively more difficult to see the ball with colored GI than with white (any temperature).

    Perhaps that's an eye problem and not a game color problem. Ive never had that issue, ever.

    Some people do have an issue with their eyes and glare/reflections and things of that nature.

    No disrespect, but it is a laughing GIF. In any case, I won't argue with you about being able to see/not see the ball. I can't see the ball with colored GI, at least not nearly as well as with white.

    Oh, no disrespect at all. But I was being serious. I know people who have issues for things like that and they are legally allowed to tint their windows past the legal limit due to them not being able to see correctly from glare and brightness.

    I dont care if someone likes colors in their games or not, its a simple matter of opinion. But personally, I think people do in fact like colors in their games and that MM is going to sell for sure.

    I just find it funny that the thread is called "worst GI fails" and ive seen a few times on here a stock game being made fun of.

    I don't have an eye issue outside of "normal" eye issues (IE i'm near sighted)

    This is a random (awesome) picture of Cyclops, since red lights and all (and honestly, how i feel when I see a purp'd out game).

    I will say that when I bought my Scared Stiff, it has colored GI lights in it from the previous owner. While it looks nice having blue behind the blue plastics, red behind the red, and green down low, it was a little dark to play, but I was able to play it. Rather than do a tear down and replace all of the GI LEDs, I put pinstadiums on it and have them at a warm white at about 60%. I can now see the game a lot better and still have the color GI lighting which now is just accent lighting. The pinstadiums (love them or hate them) serve a purpose for some games, especially when you use them with white and don't throw more color on top of color.

    I have all warm white on my Judge Dredd and my WOZ is stock lighting but I added pinstadiums to both of those as well and same settings. 60% warm white and now I can see the dark areas on JD and not as color blinded from WOZ. This isn't meant to be a pinstadium commercial, just bring them up to say that they can correct some issues made by previous owners. Of course, I could have torn into the game and torn out all of the old bulbs, but I am happy with this fix.

    Quoted from calfdemon:

    Just FYI changing the GI in a SS to white leds would probably take 45 minutes and cost $10.
    But yes, Pinstadium s have always served the purpose of lighting up clown puked machines for sure. Although I've heard WOZ for sure benefits form them.

    #4147 26 days ago

    You guys see the RGB GI on the new medieval remake? Mother of god. And people are clamoring for it, referring to it as an upgrade.

    Stock game? 1997 Williams MM is a stock game. New MMR is a lighting abomination.

    yes, it's a stupid move for a company to put that as stock. on MM you have the ability to turn it off. Stern did it with Avengers and learned their lesson. Now the new games are white as all can be. Why? because you can't fucking see shit if your gameroom has dark lighting. If your gameroom looks like Kmart, sure, the colored GI's will not effect you.

    I can't believe how many of Rob berks games are colorshitted. It's a good thing Expo has bright lighting everywhere or many of his games wouldn't be playable. It would be like the rare euro section, where most games you can't play.
