I was just wondering what the best way to make GI is. I've tried just using bulbs, but that just washes everything out too much, rather than just lighting up the surroundings. Flashers also look kind of weird, but are better. I'd like something that looks good with and without BAM, if possible. So, what are your favorite ways to create GI? Thanks for any help!

GI stands for General Illumination. It's the lights that light up the whole game. If the GI turns off it allows the inserts to put on a more impressive light show, especially if you're playing in a dark room.

The guys that build tables tend to use "playfield color" as general illumination. Just read steps 21 and 22 of my guide here:

Of course you can adjust light and dark with BAM post processing.

I was hoping for a realtime solution, where I can turn it on or off at any time to drastically change the brightness, rather than just having night and day versions. Has anyone managed to use flashers to effectively create GI effects? Thanks for the tips so far!

You can use the free program "Audacity" to edit music. Most of the guys prefer to use the *.ogg format to add to FP. Making it play in the script is more of a challenge because every table has script that is a bit different. It is not too difficult to replace music that is already in the Music Manager though.
