As fuzion suggested let's find the ultimate Baf layout, some that are so dark only the lamps if any are showing
I'll kick this off with one of my very first layouts I did (made 3 times so far lol) and it could do with another update if decent art could be found.
It's double 9's a shit effort from myself but it was my 3rd layout back in 2012

You really need to collate all the deemed BAF layouts first. Then post them all up in one post and have a poll.

Or a thread asking people to nominate a BAF layout so you can get all possibles together. Then do a poll to find the actual darkest layout ever created. Bit of work mind.

Next could be eye bleeders etc etc

I could recommend one of Pook's very first layouts for this, and even he admit's it's shite compared to what he turns out now..... sure it was a Barcrest Cloud 999 or similar.

If I remember correctly some issues regarding BAF layouts was down to the change over at the time between CRT and TFT monitors, they looked okay on one and BAF on the other...... what's next Vecs 'Freezer bag Reels?' :)

Well this is the darkest layout I've created....  Actually it's probably not but it was deemed just too dark for some. 

 

I did release a lighter version because I aim to please, but looking back at it, it wasn't that dark by some of today's standards.   

 

This was created from over possibly 100 small pics back in Jan 2003 ....wow 14 years old...  the cab was drawn from scratch as was the buttons.  I think if this layout was released today it would still be an excellent DX....

Looking at that image on my phone,it looks perfect, just dark enough to have the superb lighting effects to show their full potential.

...If I could un-release a layout.... it would be this total abortion, Big Mistake by MDM.   I really don't know what I was thinking.

 

I had way too much time on my hands around this time and I should have spent more time doing something else instead of creating this mute-monster.  Again a machine I don't even like that much for real.

Back at the time, I remember not liking the darker version of the layout, but as Geddy says, it could have been the crt/tft screens, because the darker version doesn't seem all that dark now.

 

As for the machine, well, The Great Escape, is a classic fruit machine, that is one of those machines, you can normally remember at least one place/pub/arcade you played it in, in my case the pub attached to Reading Station.

 

IMO, though, like Epoch tech, The Simpsons, not a great machine, I much prefer m1a machines such as Noels House Party, Gladiators & Cluedo. Without the emulator, I would never have guessed that Manhattan Skylines and this are the same tech. I remember playing both machines and thinking back, I'm sure I was in my early 20's for Manhattan and late 20's for Great Escape. Of course The Great Escape, could easily have been built on Epoch, so possibly the last ever M1a machine.

Yes, The Simpsons is an exact clone of The Great Escape, but released on epoch. Must have been around 1997 possibly.
