Hey guys,

Sorry for the delay. Work has been hectic (I don't do 86Pixels stuff full time, but I wish I did!). So here's where we're at on things:

1. We're queuing up interest for another run of displays.
2. Moving recognizers are in the works. There's still some finessing of the design to be had. Basically I'm trying to get things to be as hidden as possible while still being easy to install. If you want one of the old ones, that's fine, I can get those out in a few days.
3. Yes, we've stated in some conversations that we want to re-run the fiber optic ramps. In discussions with Eli, he didn't mind if we re-ran it. Then the question of whether or not to build it into the pinvision platform was raised. I've decided that the fiber optic mod is probably best on its own so that customers aren't required to purchase a product they don't want. With that said, I just have to reverse engineer the address decoding between the CPU and the driver board. Lighting boards are already designed with the appropriate lengths and thicknesses of fiber optic cable sitting in stock.

I've had people contacting me weekly/monthly about status updates, so apologies if I miss a few emails. I generally don't respond to the repeated weekly requests unless I have a significant update, but sometimes other emails get filed away.

Anywho, that's where we are!

Jimmie, thanks for the update! For anyone on the fence on the LCD mod, it is fantastic! The lighting effects from the LED strip are beautiful and integrated into gameplay smoothly. Thanks for doing this, it is what prompted me to finally get a Pro. This is my favorite game in a long time, beats out the newer Sterns for me. Can’t wait to see the fiber optic and recognizer!

I’m in for a Tron PinVision and a light bar please, I don’t have a moving recogniser so either will do.
I do have total lightshow fitted so just wondered if PinVision will work with that.
I’ve literally just finished stripping and rebuilding mine so would love PinVision on it to be the icing on the cake
Just working on my light cycle to go on my topper, the topper main display is on when pin on, I fitted a switch to the drop bank so when it lowers the recogniser lights as well as the 2 discs on the topper for disc MB.
Then the light cycle will light for light cycle mb, it’s all wired, just have to modify the wiring internally on the light cycle.
Tron is a fantastic pin

Hey Compy , hint hint....

Great suspect with the loyalty the other two you have already done have.

Can't buy one second hand in Australia.

I'd like to be added to the line for the 2nd run of displays and for the lit ramps kit when it becomes available as well.

What's the best way to make that official?

#306 56 days ago

I would also like to be added to the list of displays as well as a lit ramp kit.

#307 52 days ago

Can you add me to the list for the next run for a PinVision Tron LE display?

#308 51 days ago

I'm interested in a PRO version

#309 51 days ago

Please add me to the list for Tron LE.

#310 49 days ago

Hi Jimmie - Making sure you have me down for a Pinvision for my LE. Thank you!

#311 43 days ago

If your doing another run.
I'm in for the pinvison and lighted ramps for a pro version.

#312 41 days ago

I have messaged in DM and email, so trying in here as I read above that an alert is set. Can you please respond about moving recognizers for the LE? I need one please.

I glossed over the fact I needed to order that, as the attached image from the website incorrectly says 'Note for Tron Pro Owners' which I guess was meant to say LE. As soon as I saw 'Pro' I skipped ahead and missed an important note.

So now I have installed I realize I do need the extra recognizer please.

Good afternoon all!

We've restocked Tron Pro units. Units ordered will be assembled and shipped after TPF (next week). We'll also have units for sale at the show.

#316 6 days ago

They are pretty cool, but i am the only one who knows it's there unless i geekilly point it out.

Still happy to have it, and totally love it.

From a guy who won't spend the same dosh on the 100% popular Alien apron this is the business.
