    Every hobby has what we may deem "crappy mods" - unfortunately we cant control what people do with our product or what they think looks great, everyone has different tastes..

    We hope this purp'ing out of games will just die out eventually

    Quoted from wayout440:

    Crusade all you want, only other pinball hobbyists will get it. I have a friend who is a casual player, his eyes light up and he begins drooling when he sees this stuff. I've brought games into my place and he's all shocked when I tell him I am not going to LED the game. It's a disease, and those suffering are drawn to the bright and gaudy games like zombies.

    Yup, into the light......zaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap

    I've had to de-purple several machines I've purchased, which sadly came with an upcharge for the "premium LEDs" in them. Luckily where I'm at, purping isn't very common. I rarely see colored up machines, but there are some serious hotbeds of colored GI pinball machines and I just expect to see them when traveling to those areas.

    I bought a pin once and the seller wanted an extra $250 for the LED kit he installed. So I said fine put back all the incandescent bulbs and knock $250 off your asking price then. In the end he knocked $150 off and I got to keep the LEDs which I removed myself once I brought the game home.

    LEDs to me are like car mods; they're only worth anything to the person who installed them, but the seller always thinks they should demand a premium price.

    Found this one for sale online...is this one done tastefully or too much ?!? Just curious what some pinsiders think! Haha

    Well considering the acdc is mine, I'll chime in. That's stock frosted white lighting minus a strip above the jukebox and the trough was done by previous owner. The translucent bands help shine the light more bright and has red plastic protectors. The backbox has a interactive light kit installed (better then a fluorescent tube) that changes color on patterns. it's on a slow fade which is actually pretty cool and the undercab lighting is connected to a flasher and goes crazy after a game for a few seconds. I usually keep it unplugged

    this is how it suppose to look. That other one looks horrible on the backglass and the back half of the playfield.

    So those of you who's games end up on this thread, is it an honor to be on the hall of shame?

    Stock lighting on the pf, minus that purple strip above the jukebox. The backbox has this installed. That's just where I happened to snap the pic. It slow fades between reds, blues, greens and purples.
    Believe me, I never would have installed this, but it's here now and actually looks badass behind Helen. Hard to photograph tho

    Quoted from Dee-Bow:

    Can I ask a serious question? Why did you feel the need to put a random color underneath every white insert? I see people do that and I just don't understand, like when someone goes and makes each mode insert in STTNG a different random color of the rainbow. Why make the crosses pink for instance? How does that relate to anything in the game or even make sense? I can see if it was a logical match like in Batman Dark Knight when people match the Joker (green), Scarecrow (orange) and Batman (blue) for instance, but I don't understand just doing it for the sake of doing it. White inserts can look really good with LEDs. I'm not trying to be an ass, I just really was curious as to the reasoning why some people do this.

    I don't think the color inserts are random! I feel it separates them from each other! The crosses are purple btw!.. i feel the white just looks too boring and plain for the inserts and the colors seem to give the playfield life! These are all Chinese bulbs btw..no fancy comet super bright triple surface diode shit! Cheeeap!

    Johnny is still on a temp trade but coming home soon.. play with the colors more then! But I'm thinkin lots of blue in that game & have a set of mirror blades for it..so it will be an eyegasm game soooon!

    It looks like shit. There you go.

    Now if was a game like Spanish Eyes, we might have gave you a little leeway because the game is ugly as all shit anyway. But MET has fantastic art, and you just colorshit all over it. Shame on you.

    #430 2 years ago

    I can feel OK with 1 colored bulb in GI, surrounded by white, if the art allows, like one red bulb in GB,
    but I wonder if what the camera sees, that we dont see, will haunt peoples eyes in the years to come.

    Kinda like loud car speakers when I was young, affecting my hearing today.

    Here's my Black Knight after restoration. Warm white frosted in all GI and color matched LED in the inserts.

    I think those two lights dead center in the back of the playfield are supposed to be red.

    Quoted from PoMC:

    Interesting. I can see how that might be true since the pops are red and the play field is orange/red back there.

    #445 2 years ago

    I've owned a few TFTC and they all had red condoms on the bulbs back there.

    #446 2 years ago

    Love me some TFTC. Wish they would come up FS more often. It seems like a rare find these days. Red condoms or not, jakers made a huge improvement regardless. I'm in the camp of "how they did it from the factory" as well, but still looked better than before.
