Quoted from centerflank:

Zip tie the connectors together for the trough opto boards first and report back after a bunch of games.

Thank you for the tip, I will do that.

Quoted from west6926:

Stern actually sells a repair kit for this problem if the zip ties don't work

Cool, I'll order that if I need to--part number (or whatever Stern calls this kit), perhaps?

Thanks

Damn too late game over. She was cheering some old guy named Sedaikis. He was actually semi legit with the ball

I have a prediction

I believe Disney is producing a Tron movie

I believe a TronVE pin is in development

Reasons for prediction:
1. Tron run/r video game is out... Why now!?
2. We keep seeing various Tron characters out and about randomly
3. Tron 3 movie, canceled, no way. Just concealed to have an epic egg hunting concealed release.
4. Tron pros still selling in the private market for $6500+
5. Lots of talk, speculation and evidence on tronVE possibly being made. (An actual Spider-Man VE)
...

Thought we established TRON VE talk is good but should be kept outside this thread. Lets keep the Non-Believers frenzied on the Outside of the TRON Bible's pages. The purpose of this thread is to Drink, Drink, Drink go fast fast fast and Mod the shit out of our games!!

Im picking up a HUO Tron LE this coming week loaded with a bunch of mods and very low play- cant wait to get it home. I had the option to buy a nib pro but I think the LE features and extras added to the one im getting make it worth the extra $$. I was holding out for a VE but then this LE came along

Lucky. They're hard to come by these days. Heck, mine costs $45,035. Let me know if you want 2

Just joined the club and I was going to order the ramp lights through pinbits but they are out of stock. Does anyone else know where I can find this mod at?

#4970 3 years ago

Did Tron LE come with LED's for the playfield inserts (sockets or led light boards)? GI & Flashers?

#4971 3 years ago

Lamps are led light boards. Gi and flashers are incandescents

#4972 3 years ago

FYI....I already PM'd Eli about the kits.
He said that to the best of his knowledge Pinbits was still producing them. Kinda sounded to me that he has nothing to do with building them anymore.
Eli also said that generally when they go out of stock they'll be restocked in 2 or 3 weeks....so keep checking.
Pam/pinbits never did reply to my email. Pity...I'd like to buy more than just the kit.

Pam must be swamped, she answered a phone call, but won't reply to the email she told me to send her

I'm sadly with you on that one...does sound awesome, but also go through walls and interrupt the Main floor activities...some commandments must be dodged to avoid Wifey conflict.

I won't tell mine you posted that ( for both of our sakes)....she might say " new hubby time, and who is this Flank guy?"...

Haven't checked for awhile... is there any new way to make the rubber disc shoot the ball faster other than cleaning it with alcohol?

#4990 3 years ago

That helped mine a bit, but finally had to change it out after about 1k plays to maximize carnage again....

What disc do you have? The stock black or a German one?

#4992 3 years ago

I have 2" transparent rings on the slings bought from pinball center, yesterday during my league meet one of the sling arms got infront of the rubber 4 or 5 times. Anyone else having problems with this?

#4993 3 years ago

Stock. What's the German one?

Pinball Center in Germany sells a clear silicon one. Here's an example of what it does.

Yep that one scares the first time, are my plastics going to end up ok? But it does wear out over time. Mine is now perfect, just sometimes it just warps the ball right down the middle.....that's Rinzler kicking your.......

#4996 3 years ago
Quoted from PeterG:

No crap. I was terrified the first time I saw it in action. Had to check with some threads for reassurances that all would be ok (nay, better even)!

Has worn down a bit (and I've already got replacements on hand for when it dies), but is still scary and thrilling in a "hurts so good" kind of way.

I love seeing the ball shoot out of the disc with so much spin that it heads right back in! Also, trying to figure out where it has gone on the rarer occasion that it rockets out faster than I can see (hopefully, SDTM so hard that it ends up back in the shooter lane)!

Quoted from c508:

This has happened to me. So crazy.

#4998 3 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

Just checked my game.. 210, 177, 163 (today) million are my top scores since whenever I messed with things last.
*edit* Just got 129 for the next one..bumped something down. SOS start with double scoring running... 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 million to start. Finished disc in SOS but at single value, never finished lightcycle even though I restarted it TWICE on ball 3.

dammit Frax, Had not checked Lamp thread in a week, I come in and start reading your accounts of gameplay, has me sweating and chewing my nails as I read, good work sir. Better than GOT season finale... Lamp is not dead... I love the lamp.

#4999 3 years ago

Has anyone got the speaker panel decals fitted and if so could you post a pix. Not sure which ones Ive seen look better.
The ministry of pinball has 2 options and Matt's 1 at back alley. It's always a drab area now with the VE sitting next to Tron.
Even with the speaker light kits it still needs something. Maybe Aurich has done something for this?

#5000 3 years ago

Lightcycles......color interacts w sigma display.....
