Quoted from Aurich:
I love the laser. I know people got overly hyped about it and were disappointed when they finally saw it, probably all Stern's fault really, but when it comes on I get excited. I'd be more excited if the GI did this though, Stern should really code it in.
This would be a simple thing to code and really nice to have, but will Stern do it?
Just turning off the top row of the backboard lights makes a HUGE difference in the laser visibility. There are times in starfield multi-ball when the backboard lights flash off and on (I think when you hit the ship), and the laser looks really-really cool when they're off.. even if it is just momentarily.
