Another Small Arcade Question...

on Friday, January, 31, 2003 6:10 PM
Is there supposed to be a black light in the lower part of the game? I have a white bulb in there now, but according to this image (and my faulty memory) there's supposed to be a black light inside there like the one beside the joystick...

Should I black bulb that one too?

I remember playing the tron game a lot. I think there was but I don't rememeber too well theough. Try it with a black light then with the regular on. See which one looks cool in there then let us know about it.

It's a plan then.

It may be some time, but I'll let you know when I do.

I'm not sure

I remember noticing that as well. Mine also has a white bulb in it now. I haven't tried the black light yet, but it makes sense.

Does your lower panel seem washed out? Mine certainly does.

It seems just a tad like the paint on the inside of that lower glass is a bit weakened, but nothing major. I planned to strengthen it's opacity later as part of the mega-restoration project.

The more I think about it, whether or not they were shipped from the factory like it or not, at least the one in the arcade I played back then had two black light bulbs. I even think it could minimize some of the imperfection of the art on that glass too, maybe.

Bloack light bulbs...

In total, there are 4 flourescent bulbs. One white for the marquee, one white for the MCP backdrop, one blacklight w/purple galss bulb for just above the control panel, and for the one below the control panel, it's a black-light, but it's a buld with white glass w/blacklight gas in it (Kinda hard to explain) Not your typical blacklight you'd see at spencers or Wal-Mart. I think these you find at plant nurseries.

Good luck.

Could be that

It can be that as well. Or you can go to a light specialty place that has them as well. For the black floresence blubs. Its not a popular thing to pick up. But it is there.

My spelling was horrible in the last post. I guess my Spell Check program was out flirting with one of those inoperative data-pushers again. I'll be sure to put a logic probe on him to keep him in line

Don't worry just be happy.

Bah don't worry we're not going to start counting who has the most typing errors here. We're all here to have fun chatting away in the different board areas.
