    Quoted from Coindork:

    This machine like every other machine in the database has this product linked to and the machine doesn't even use electricity as its from 1931.

    I'm sure soon the marketplace will be flooded with the new pinstadium extension cord and adapter kit for these games- $499

    #254 42 days ago

    Maybe the real strategy here is to subliminally get the Pinside community to like anime robots and DDR.

    ...works in uBlock Origin and I presume Adblock to nuke the ads completely, leaving the others intact.

    THANK YOU!!! Works great...

    Thanks,

    If people want to waste their money, that's their choice.

    However, fast forward to 36 minutes and beyond and is there anyone who seriously believes this game looks better with the Xmas lighting?

    I am disappointed that such a great tournament puts these on their games. Perhaps it's worth us all paying an extra dollar to Pinburgh to NOT put them on?!

    You know whose opinions matter the most? The Pinburgh players. I have a hard time believing they would use the Pinstadium’s if players had strong opinions about them (in terms of negatively effecting play).

    #258 42 days ago

    The glare from the overhead lights in that video are awful. Unless those are the Pinstadiums installed horizontally across the playfield above the flippers.

    It would be great if they sent out a questionnaire.

    From talking with others, the consensus is pretty clear that people would prefer ALL aftermarket crap to be left off, but esp the pinstadium junk.

    Zebra light distracting junk and now with the verified possibility of parts falling off games and impacting competition and causing games to go down... pretty sure give the risk v reward that the majority were pick NO for pinstadiums on competitive games.

    Sure, let the guy pay sponsorship, but dont force the junk on games.

    #261 42 days ago

    No expert on web commerce, but is it normal for a forum to have a third party business embedded within it? I have the basics on the pinside market but, picking on p-stadium again as an example, aside from the flood of ads which I assume are paid for somehow(?), there is a 5000 post thread which has 2500 posts with pictures from the business owner promoting their products. Does pinside get a cut? If not, seems like a free web hosting service for people. Again, I am clueless at running a website so maybe this all adds up.

    I have some Pinstadium’s and having them fall off has been a big “gotcha” that I didn’t anticipate! Scott has supported me, however it’s been a PITA. I see Pinstadium Hover’s as the “bug fix”, however Scott is charging $40 IIRC for the new/improved mounts. Considering the price of the product, it’s a huge slap in the face to his existing customers. I’ve voiced this on the other Pinstadium thread and didn’t get much sympathy. I refuse to pay $40 for the bug fix and don’t plan anymore Pinstadium purchases until Scott changes his strategy. I don’t mind paying “up” for great products, however Pinstadium’s magna-mounts were buggy from day 1.

    #269 42 days ago

    I'm coming out with a new light strip product that will stick on top of other light strip products. I'm calling them "Brighties"

    #270 42 days ago

    I like the idea of pinstadiums and I think it looks cool on some machines, but I also dont watch my tv movies with artificial processing on or motion smoothing, I like it like the director intended.. I think of pinball machines with factory lighting the same, the way the creator intended it to be.

    #271 42 days ago

    But are those LED candles, or in-candle-escents?

    The Baffle Ball mod could be marketed as Pin-Candleabra. Great for remote tourneys with no electricity or a power outage!

    they are horrible. I got a set for WOZ and hated them. Having to remove them to lift the playfield was a joke. The app was basic and nothing special. they did not have molex connectors for hook up, so you had to shove these wires down inside other molex connectors for setup. I for sure felt like I got bent over. I fell for his crap early. Ended up taking them off and left in bottom of cabinet for next owner.

    False logic there, the creator is often constrained by budget reasons. The creator of Magic City wanted a color wheel lamp in the backglass but was nixed as being too expensive. Lots of playfields and back glass have unused lamp socket locations.

    Nothing wrong with making adjustments to taste or fixing shortcomings

    Or limited to the technology at the time. The great WMS games of the '90s would come with LEDs if they were made today.
    In fact, the remakes do.

    The remake of MB also flashes horrible colored lights every time you hit a character...just awful. Restraint is very important.

    #283 42 days ago

    Are leds just cheaper to make new games with... or are the manufacturers all caught up in the pinside color bomb and make you go blind hype?

    #284 42 days ago

    I love playing games in dimly lit rooms. I love pinstadiums for what extra light they give in the darkness that surrounds me.

    If I played in a room that had better lighting, I would never want them.

    That said, I do think the advertising is a bit much. Everyone knows what they are and what they do. No need to keep spamming the marketplace.

    #285 42 days ago

    When I set up the new game room....The old dining room and living room, I added these.

    The remote dimming features of this LED Light work Perfectly with all the games! Even my Pre War No Electric!

    (and no more hitting Fan blades with toppers!)

    What I find “illuminating” is that every time this post gets bumped to the top, he posts something redundant on his thread. I’ve often considered his advertisements spam but just went with the flow. Glad someone mentioned it.

    I actually felt weird reading his last days worth of post. I kind of felt bad for him, because he was trying so hard.

    pinstadium could solve his "problems" by actually being a standup guy and going thru and being honest about the games he's products supports... you know; games he has personally installed the product on... or at least has a postive feedback from his customers that it works.

    Instead this shyster has chosen like rock914 to list every damn game in the planet as linked to his products. This is seriously abuse of the system and robin needs to hold them accountable. If robin doesn't hold them accountable ... then maybe it's time to rethink who's interest he really has for the community. I know that seems harsh; but, robin was quick to come in an defend the marketing promo boxes... but he doesn't seem to be taking any serious effort to solve the problems... infact NONE of the admins are. I would have expected him to respond instantaneously w/ regards to the abuse given this is his full time job now.

    So Robin... if you are really taking action please let us know and I'll back off and apologize publicly.

    #292 41 days ago

    I found it annoying when every game thread was getting spam pics but that dried up quickly. I'm not searching games all day so I never see the adds and could care less. The product is pretty good on some games. Most dont need it for my tastes but it certainly helps a few games. It's really not that hard to ignore as I'm oblivious to it. For those that love them, great. For those that hate them, dont buy them. They must be selling a lot to afford to sponsor everything. I just place spot lights when needed or use the matrix stuff from comet. Much cheaper and most of my games dont need that much extra light. I did like it on Rob Zombie though.

    Don't you think "shyster" is a little much here? I get it you don't like that it's linked to your game but in no imaginable way would that ever lead to him making money off of that linking because no one owns the game. Yes the advertising is too much and Robin has said he's addressing it with him. How about you take a break from it for a while and see what happens, no real reason to accuse a person who has a stellar reputation for service and support of being unscrupulous.

    No. I don't.
    The guy is too busy pimpin in his thread... to actually take time to correct the issue he created.
    I'm not sure robin has done anything. I took a break. 12hrs of break. Long enough to Robin to actually respond or have him correct the ads. I don't think it's unreasonable for a "full time" website owner to respond to abuse like this.
    How long do I give them? 8 hours? 80hours? 800 hours?

    He is making money. His "ads" are being promoted on my worklogs... my homebrew page. That's the whole reason he did it. He saw a popular thread here on Pinside and "added" my game to his ads to generate links and eyeballs. That's reprehensible.

    If I were to do this and put a virtual finger to these reasonable requests... I'd be banned from Pinside or at least be put on "timeout".

    Where's your car parked? I have a sticker I want to put on it to advertise for my business.

    I'm sorry; but I just don't see why you guys think this is nothing and being dismissive.
    That said; The admins have closed or "paused" stores for not filling orders. Looked at Chroma ...
    I guarantee if the Admins were to pause pinstadium store until he fixes the linked games - he'd be fast to respond.
    Instead; all we get is silence.
