    I bought a pinscore display set for my williams Black Knight. No problems installing and they are running fine.
    That is until I saw videos on you tube showing the original gas display tubes. As it turns out Pinscore made the design decision to omit the small "tails" on number 6 and number 9.
    I contacted pinscore through marco specialities and they confirmed that it was a concious decision to leave out the "tails". The product is still of good quality but purist may still be warned that this minor detail is different from the original gas display tubes.
    Just wanted to let you all know.

    Yeah I know.
    In their reply thay mentioned that "most" displays didn't use "the tails". Maybe they found a common display decoder chip that was compatible with most of they displays so that they could use it on all they boards, nomatter if its a Bally / Williams system 3-11 etc.?

    My pictures are shown during the display test mode and here the commas are shown with every second number. They behave normally during gameplay.

    Yep, as I've mentioned earlier I also thought my pinscore displays were bad since they werent showing the 6 and 9's ( or b and g's) as the originals. But it is a concious design choice from pinscore. Since I now know its suppose to be like that I can live with it, but I just wanted you all to know that there is a difference in the way pinscore display displays the two numbers.
