I must say that the LED upgrades for pinball machines is awesome if done tastefully. I have been to numerous pinball arcades in Colorado and Texas. What I am finding is that a lot of the machines in these locations have had the GI lighting replaced with color LEDS, and the lighting in the room has been turned down. This presents a problem for me in seeing / tracking the ball. What this situation does is makes me gravitate toward the newer machines that have well lit playfields, passing up a chance to play older machines that I really like but
have difficulty seeing. I have owned / refurbished quite a few games and I love the colored LEDS, but I leave the GI some flavor of white. So, is this by design in arcades these days to turn down the lighting and make the playfields difficult to see pushing customers toward the newer, brighter, more $$ gameplay?
