Using all sunlight white LEDs (comet pinball 2 SMD) was a bit too bright. So I pulled out the 'ol box of spare bulbs and tried to match some colors to the artwork. Some red and orange in the middle, blues left and right, etc.

I did this when I had my ToM! Looks so much better! Well done.

Ah cool, didn't ever think of doing it. Now I need to play with some of the GI lighting. The lights just to the left and right above the slings (under the side plastics.. and even the ones in the slings) hit me right in the eye. Even though they are frosted, when the lights are out they are harsh. I put the spots so I could play the game without ambient light, which they were barely needed because of the brightness of the GI. Not sure if purple would work there (that's what is in the spots) or just a weaker LED might be better.

Dear good no, stop using over bright lights like 2smds. And take the colour out, it looks like shit.
