A type of score
display used on most pinball machine
s from the 1990s
onward, replacing the alphanumeric display
. This display consists of a single grid of LED
s, in at least three different sizes on different games but usually in a size similar to the space occupied by 4 score displays on earlier games.
This type of display could show all four players' scores simultaneously, or the current player's score filling the whole display, or the current player's score small plus various text, or just text, small pictures, and video modes. Sega pinballs used a larger display size with room for 6 players' scores, and thus they allowed 6-player games.
