      While I do my best work in the dark ... I prefer lights on to play

      Normally if it's day time I play with natural light and lights on of a night. I lose the ball too much with lights off

      Lights on but not in a place that reflect the light in your eyes off the glass. I played some pins at Coogee Bay and some had a ridiculous reflection off some of the overhead lights.

      By the way, can someone tell me if any of the newer machines fitted with fast flashing LEDs have a warning on them for the lights causing fits?.

      I do remember seeing a Williams/ Bally pinball with such a warning on it somewhere. It was on a STTNG or earlier Williams/ Bally stating people that suffer from fits should not play the machine or some warning like that because of the fast, bright flashing lights.

      Obviously this was only referring to the flash bulbs being of a time prior to LEDs being used but to my surprise someone did actually have a fit brought on by the flash lights on this machine.

      I'm just wondering if I saw this warning on the machine or whether it was written in the manual and if anyone can confirm this.

      Occasionally i play with lights off as the light show from my tron looks awesome in the dark.
      But usually play with lights on.

      I find it depends on the machine too. I like playing TWD Prem in the dark but struggle with LOTR in the same room in the dark.

      My old games room had two switches where I could only turn on one down light instead of all five. This gave you enough light to avoid flasher blindness
