    Quoted from Astropin:

    From Facebook:

    Ha that Flintstones actually deserves to be colored that horribly; dreadfull.

    Quoted from Dee-Bow:

    So far it's just a stubborn old man's opinion! Agreed on by other old men!

    What's the curt off for old man?

    Quoted from Darscot:

    The original incandescents did not light them worth shit.

    Haha finally "facts" have shown up!

    Demo Man is a game I always think cannot possibly get uglier....but people do love to puke it.

    #556 1 year ago
    Quoted from kvan99:

    Ha...that DM looks good.

    Wouldn't quite make your top 10 hits, but it's close.

    EDIT: Oh....actually that is subtle for you. I'd say you're improving but that's an oldy.

    #608 1 year ago
    Quoted from kvan99:

    Are you serious, it's Dirty Harry, how would you portray him?

    The PF art is for sure polarizing...sort of a strange comic book pane thing going on there. Cab art is awesome.

    #614 1 year ago
    Quoted from arcademojo:

    ...what everyone fails to mention is at least half if not more then half are kits sold by the major LED suppliers. All of them sell these kits.

    Well we don't fail to mention it in this thread and have discussions on it. That's how we know not "all of them" do.

    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/no-rainbow-puke-club-post-pics-of-worst-color-gi-fails/page/11#post-4093260

    Quoted from wayout440:

    I don't think any of the kits from Cointaker color bomb the GI, and probably not from the other major pinball LED suppliers.

    CT used to sprinkle some in though, no idea if they still do. The only kit I ever bought was years ago and it had color changing for a few inserts and a few color for GI.

    #616 1 year ago
    Quoted from arcademojo:

    You're wrong and so am I on the Cointaker.

    Then add me to that list.....oh the shame of that POTC!!
    EDIT: The list is being wrong as Comet has shit the bed now also

    #621 1 year ago
    Quoted from Dee-Bow:

    Please re-post all the messages you guys send to these companies telling them that they're idiots and ruining pinball for selling colored light bulbs!

    Against the rules they're all PMs.

    #640 1 year ago
    Quoted from Jason43:

    So I'm curious to see what the consensus is on my lost world.

    The GI looks fine, not counting the pop bumpers. The rest is skittles-ville

    #643 1 year ago
    Quoted from Taxman:

    The little bit of the backglass we can see is starting to scare me.

    I think that's just the pop reflection? I hope

    #652 1 year ago
    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    ...Like on my atlantis. there are a ton of white inserts. So I color matched things to help players identify things. Like all the number 1's are in red, and lock 1 is in red. So people know you have to hit all the 1's to light lock 1. all number 2 standups are green and lock 2 is green. And so on. ....

    Just when you think you know someone

    #660 1 year ago
    Quoted from vwallat99:

    Be tasteful about it?

    Well The Twister is fine because...well it's a Twister and wHom gives a shit but the Centaur is disgrace.

    Damn...there are many diff'rent opinions and all that horse shit but if me and my friends have to name the 5-10 best looking PF - EVERY SINGLE person is going to list Centaur. For me the best art ever, for others nothing but respect.
    To shit it out with the red is an abortion.

    #662 1 year ago
    Quoted from vwallat99:

    A couple of red lights makes it a disgrace?

    Define "a couple."

    #664 1 year ago
    Quoted from vwallat99:

    4 on the bottom and the 4 in the queens chamber?

    If you're asking me, and you are, the only facts i have to go on are your videos. And to me it looks like the most beautiful PF ever has 1/4 of it covered in a horrible awful red glow of shit. I'm sure it looks better in person.

    once again I fucking hope so.

    Quoted from PinRob:

    Wow, a bit over the top in the language department don’t ya think?

    Fuck yeah

    Quoted from Archytas:

    I'd like to offer my BSD that I had circa 3 years ago - at the time I thought this looked badass, total blue overload. If I had another I would do it very differently now!

    Quoted from Rascal_H:

    Looks like every BSD I’ve seen. That game is a favorite for the pukers.

    #701 1 year ago
    Quoted from tamoore:

    To be fair, my games often have the default high scores on them because after my guests leave, I take the batteries out to wipe out their scores so I can get back on the list easier.........

    #711 1 year ago
    Quoted from irobot:

    seriously, why do people want a mega watt GI bulb in their game?
    do they read the newspaper under the light of a couple of 500w construction lamps?

    It's actually pretty simple, and a self feeding thing.
    First the change all the inserts to super bright levels. This makes the GI look really dark and harder to see so then you have to keep pumping up the lumens to even it out.

    Do you know how you can't see the PF or the ball on you machines at home when you're playing them? No, me neither

    The other very real reason is people have extremely poor eyesight. Even before LEDs were everywhere people still adding spotlights to their PFs. I didn't understand it because I have the same games and I can see everything fine.

    EDIT: You also have the upgrading issue with people juts want the most of anything they can get. LE is exactly the same as a Premium, why would you by one? Because it's the highest model. Was it last year when Art(?) maybe came up with a photoshopped pic of a flasher with 50 LEDs on it as a joke? And people thought it was real and were gobbling it up trying to order.

    #712 1 year ago
    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    brightness isn't a problem as much as the choice to put color where white needs to be.
    Just another failure on the spike list.

    That is where we disagree; brightness is all part of the sickness. People are buying new Stern & JJPs and adding massive amounts of light to them.

    #715 1 year ago
    Quoted from tamoore:

    Do you play in the dark or with overhead lights on? I think this makes a difference.......

    Honestly I play every way. I play full lights, dimmed lights, and no lights; all in a basement.
    Boy that doesn't sound very cool does it.
    But anywhom, There are very few games that are really really dark. My DH is probably my darkest game and the only one I would have trouble seeing...but I don't. That's with LEDs in inserts

    Quoted from Darscot:

    Pinball always equates to a dark arcade or pub.

    We've talked aboot this many times and you have people from your angle, and then people like me saying I grew up in arcades playing and never played in the dark once. Always wondered if that factors into it as we grow up.

    Quoted from Darscot:

    Maybe that's why so many people find invisaglass worth the money and I find it basically pointless.

    Ha that's another interesting topic as I find it pointless as well.

    #724 1 year ago
    Quoted from matt_adams:

    On sale in the UK with LED "upgrade" ahhhhh my eyes!

    In the UK with a traditional 'Merican event like the Indy 500...no wonder the world hates us!

    Quoted from phil-lee:

    To someone they looked rad and worth doing. Don't take the happiness away, OK?.

    And crackheads love to sit in an alley all day and shit on themselves as they smoke the rock. Doesn't make it right.

    #774 1 year ago
    Quoted from kvan99:

    Personally, I love LED color changing speaker kits.

    I didn't think you've ever met any LEDs you didn't like

    #781 1 year ago

    Did you ever think Kvan that maybe you wouldn't burn through games so quick if they didn't look like shit?

    I mean at least pick the colors yourself instead of buying kits.

    #785 1 year ago
    Quoted from kvan99:

    He's a simple man, he likes mashed potatoes and SW. He's always there when you need him and he magically appears in in any thread about JM. He spreads the gospel of led truth and peppers the threads with "aboot" because he likes it and the Canadians don't. The Law!!! is coming for you!!!

    Hey, I do like Mashed potatoes & hate JM; can't argue with that.

    Later ladies, I have a hot attorney here that wants to privatley cross examine me.

    I hope she likes examining in blinding light.

    #836 1 year ago

    It always gets hostile when trolls are afoot. This thread is about not liking colored puke jobs and removing them. There's no reason for people to continually come in here saying "I like color bombing;" it serves no other purpose than to rile people up and is the very definition of trolling.

    Toppers to me are pretty dumb. But I don't hang out in the "check out these cool toppers" thread saying over and over I think they're dumb. But hey, we all gotta complain so when on pinside

    #838 1 year ago
    Quoted from arcademojo:

    Now just hold on there a minute....

    No you hold on! Yes I'm obviously talking aftermarket toppers.

    Quoted from phil-lee:

    bwahahaha.. that might be the dumbest thing I read on pinside!

    You must be new here

    #887 1 year ago
    Quoted from Darscot:

    You guys can have you laughs but its not humor when you just talking shit about people and trying to be superior.

    Jesus christ man take your pity party to the other acceptable threads.

    Do you think anything you say to us is going to change our minds? Of course not, so what is the point? That you've felt you've done a good deed for the day? I know what it's like discussing a topic with you; it's never ending and never leads anywhere.
    I mean clown pukers like Kvan at least get it, it's a funny shit talking back and forth and it's fun. We don't need to start filling up this thread with Canadian tears.

    Legs are really bad....oh and they're based on the "leg protectors" that actually damage your csb

    #931 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinstein:

    Because its a hater thread that attacks people vicariously through their pinball machines.

    I don't think that's a thing is it?

    #937 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinstein:

    You mean like reverse racism? .

    No, like using the term vicariously like you did. I don't think you can vicariously do something through an inanimate object can you?

    #940 1 year ago
    Quoted from Dee-Bow:

    Dumber than coloring your sparky with sharpie markers or glueing children's craft beads to your MET playfield!?

    Fair point... Glue dolls way worse

    #942 1 year ago
    Quoted from Vader77:

    Now that I'm becoming more puke sensitive (yes, I've puked in the past and still have accent puke in places)...

    Hey a lot of us have been there. When LEDs first came out it was exciting and plenty of us over did everything. As I've always said I still have a TZ that looks like a french whore; although I've been taking shit off finally.

    Quoted from Vader77:

    would you consider Stern Star Treks to be inherently pukey given the color changing inserts particularly in attract mode? Or the fancier ones with color changing GI?

    They aren't pukey because they were designed that way, and only work in colors for certain(t) modes.
    Attract mode is just what it claims; bright, flashy, eye catching light used to attract moths.

    So if "clown-pukers" is too offensive these people can now be called "Moths."

    #945 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinstein:

    Still people put a lot of love into their machines. Some would consider them their "baby."

    Agreed. And we're trying to explain to them the color puking is like dressing their beautiful baby up like a filthy whore and posting pictures of them online.

    You are not what you own. People that get that upset because people don't like the look of their game, or their game overall, or the music they like are all equally silly.

    #949 1 year ago
    Quoted from mwong168:

    I think you mean putting lipstick on a pig

    Haha hey no one brought 90s gottliebs into this

    The sad thing is most the games look great before..."the transition"

    #977 1 year ago
    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Actually they don't come in full pressure contact with the cabinet decals or paint ....

    Good to know!

    Uff I hope that Galaxy has a terrible PF and the shit LED job is just to hide it

    #985 1 year ago
    Quoted from jar155:

    Ridiculous that you would even accept that in your home.

    Hey you haven't seen his home; maybe it's a complete shithole?

    Quoted from Frippertron:

    This is supposed to be a fun hobby.

    It used to be. Then along the way it became arts & crafts show and then a icy hot L33t ricer car show

    Quoted from Swainer80:

    OMG I'm dying over here!

    When i look at these poor machines all I see are little kids in those wacky fashion shows or dance moms...is so sad.
    My god wont anyone think of the children!??!!

    Quoted from trk12fire:

    IM doesn't look like that with LEDs, it looks like this. People are changing the photos and using really bad examples.

    #1082 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinstein:

    I think trolling a hater thread it totally appropriate.

    That's the problem with trolls; their dumb enough to always think they're on the right side.

    #1102 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinstein:

    How absolutely generic. Which one of your wives holds the current high score?

    Hey look out Utah jokes! A slight bit more amusing than your translites

    #1104 1 year ago
    Quoted from jar155:

    I found that Demolition Man I played at PAGG that had black balls. It was REALLY hard to see the ball.

    Uff colored balls and goddamn flipper toppers (Uff I throw up a little bit in Pinstein's mouth even having to type that term) are pretty bad.

    #1108 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinstein:

    Just dont try and kiss me. Im very handsome

    Just dont try and kiss me when you get that close. Im very handsome.

    Some may even say your twice as handsome as most!

    #1118 1 year ago
    Quoted from CactusJack:

    Oh! You are wasting your time trying to be the Grammar and Spelling police here on Pinside. It has been discussed before elsewhere and the consensus appears to be that stupid people want to stay stupid.

    Well since I'm the one being called stupid here, thanks 6 years of college, I can tell you it's more of a speed/bad typing thing thing for me. 60% of the time I accidentally use a semi colon instead of an apostrophe because I;m typing fast. And it doesn;t matter anyway.
    Plus, the fact you think you're "better" than someone else and having to teach them to be "smarter" is completely offensive.

    Now, let's get back to idiots that color their games like simpletons and tell them how they're having their fun wrong.

    #1125 1 year ago
    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    I just can't imagine why anyone would think that about you?

    Hey I'm not taking that from some Ohio heyseed!

    Quoted from jar155:

    Haha, they even purp'd the topper.

    Are there purp'd flipper toppers yet?

    #1130 1 year ago
    Quoted from irobot:

    And you think that's not the act of a loser troll?

    Hey looks like you have a new friend! Don't worry, many of us have have his Brazlian love peotry PM'd to us constantly.

    #1137 1 year ago
    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    Wouldn't this guy qualify for the "Broken record" pinside violation? You know like 50 posts ago?

    Well everyone would. If you can't tell there is no moderation in this thread.

    #1139 1 year ago
    Quoted from kvan99:

    I agree. What's old will be new again. LEDs are here to stay you old geezers. Get over it.

    Yes I have LEDs almost every machine I own.

    #1143 1 year ago
    Quoted from wayout440:

    .....or an interesting visual accent that personalizes my game from the other 8099 Comets that are out there?

    Hard to tell without video. But hey, it can;t look any worse than that photoshop job or text on that add...wtf?!?

    #1144 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinstein:

    I dont want my blackout to look like every other blackout. I want it to look like MY blackout.

    It's all subjective. One man's Blackout is another person day-glow abortion.

    Haha nice.

    Happy Birthday you old bastard!

    #1158 1 year ago
    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    You saw what they did to me didn't you. Here I thought I was in good standing with other Pinside members.

    You're in very fine standing. We're just not into the idea of lighting up the legs of a pinball machine...that can't be too much of a shock to learn it's not everyone's cup of tea.

    #1160 1 year ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    Personally, I don't have any clown puke LE jobs, just as I wouldn't be caught dead riding a Huffy or My Little Pony girl's bicycle.

    Holy shit you old devil I didn;t even see it was you with the avatar. I knew the disgrace of this thread would bring you back!

    #1169 1 year ago

    Miketango the problem is there are 100,000 posts disliking things I like I don't take it personally.
    If you don't like TZ, cool I do. See? Not hard at all.

    #1196 1 year ago
    Quoted from Darscot:

    Do you consider this TZ to look bad or be colour bombed? The human eye does a much better job than a camera. I’m starting to think some of you guys have serious eye problems. Walking around with no colour balance or completely dialated pupils.

    there's no color in the GI so it isnt color bombed; It's a very simple definition.

    I love how the anti Pinstadium crowd is the one with bad eyesight, that's rich.

    #1201 1 year ago

    I still find it hard to put LEDs EMs although I haven't tried the sunlight yet. The warm was never warm enough for me. Of course If i just through them in I think I'd get used to it after awHile but haven't seen a real need yet.

    #1212 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    (and don't worry Robin, every single photo I will post or have posted, unlike some other contributors, has been from my personal collection now or in the past)

    No we're actually all very worried you own a Road Kings

    #1224 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    I'm assuming some of you guys don't like powder coating either?

    Let's take a look....

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I would go all original personally. Not a fan of powder coating myself...although that bad boy wouldn't look horrible all blacked out. You start getting into "it being red cause it's blood" etc it just gets too American Chopper to me.

    ...And here we are.

    #1226 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    In honor of this thread, I may just clown puke it.

    Oh you little teaser, stop playing games. You were going to clown puke it anyway

    I'd take those leg "protectors" off though so you don't do more damage.

    #1231 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    And plastic will always do less damage than metal to a wood surface.

    That's not exactly true but let us stay on topic the northern lights

    #1253 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    It's quite simple. Saying a game looks stupid...not that bad, but COULD be offensive to the owner of the game. Saying the person that did it is stupid...much different story, and most likely offensive either way you cut it.

    Yes everyone just please keep the insults to the machines that have put in their own bulbs

    #1257 1 year ago
    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    so basically, it comes down to, if you color puke your games, you have the mentality of a child, since they are attracted to colorized bling. That sounds about right.

    Right but that ins't shocking in anyway if you just think logically aboot it. That's the entire way this "hobby" has turned. As I've said before pinball used to be aboot pinball, now it's just a male childhood arts & crafts fantasy camp.
    Is it shocking/rude that gluing toys to somone's games is childish? Of course not, same shit with blinking flashing lights *wow* *yippee* Look the bottom of my game lights up *weeeeeeeee*

    #1259 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    The irony continues. I think we all have the mentality of a child.......after all, we are all grown men/women and we collect friggin games.

    That depends on if you think games are only for kids...or if pinball machines are for kids. I think it's easy to think becasue you started playing them when you were a kid they are for kids.

    #1261 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    Now that I don't like at all. Maybe I'll go start a thread to bitch aboot it.

    Well be ready to be trolled by a bunch of doll loving a$$holes that have nothing better to do all day than tell you you're old and out of touch for not liking them even though it's obvious it looks like complete and utter shit.

    #1269 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    A good friend of mine doesn't even come on here anymore, because his exact comment was "pinside is a bunch of people bitching about everything. This is supposed to be a hobby that we all enjoy."

    Funny I always remember the hobby to be aboot shit talking, playing games not looking at them, and one upsmanship (?) .
    So you never know.

    #1278 1 year ago
    Quoted from tamoore:

    If it wasn't some about looking at them, they wouldn't put art or flashers in them.
    But yea. Mostly, I play. The looking thing is secondary. Most of my games are no better than players condition, because I don't really care if the playfield is a bit worn here or there as long as it plays good.

    Yes, that is why THEY did it

    Quoted from Colsond3:

    I actually told each person I bought those six games from that they looked like garbage when I picked them up

    Quoted from arcademojo:

    Unfortunately here on Pinside most chose the wrong way.

    Therein lies the real issue of Pinside and member forums; if they were your friends you would have told them right?

    "You rascal get out of here" *Slaps ass*

    That's how friends (or as least I've learnd here Canadians) talk to each other. The issue is/was/will always be how do you treat people in the same club even though you don't really know them.

    I've met Tamoore like 1 time. I wouldn't have a problem telling him his game looked like shit and I'm pretty sure he'd be fine telling me to F&*^ off. We'd be done with it then and move on...but it will always be hard with so many diff'rent ideas on the correct way to act.

    It's a good feeling when you get it and just put it in the row and not have to screw around with them; rare as that is.

    Quoted from tamoore:

    I have one on my Metallica. I really don't even notice it when I'm playing.

    I think a lot of this comes down to how "showy" you want your set up to be. Undercab lights, mirror blades things like that; that's all for presentation. I actually bought a pair of Mirror Blades years ago and I don't notice them at all...so what's the point? But other people like having all pageantry in their house, but it's just differing opinions.
    Like I would never do an arcade style/black light carpet...but plenty of people like them.

    Quoted from KIRK_:

    The RBION I picked up today.

    You can try LEDs in RBION but I have found regular bulbs work just as well - BION. I switched over the inserts to LEDs like most of my games and it didn't really make a diff'rence, changed some of the harder colors like yellow, and cost more. So I was happy to keep I that way. Strange to me as i usually like LED inserts but RBION has a TON of small inserts that don't use a ton of light.
