Quoted from jokerpoker:

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?

Oops....realized you wanted speaker panel examples, not speaker light kits....sorry, was drinking ( not a great excuse, as I do that most nights...

#5017 4 years ago

Purpledrillmonkey is officially starting up another batch of the Herg-designed mod which integrates Eli ramps with RGB lighting: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/lighting-mod-for-tron-ramp-kit-owners-gauging-interest/page/4#post-2979062

Along with the announced Color DMD, it's a great day for Tron owners.

Perhaps if you send me your blue one your kids will notice it missing, deduce the new color DMD is on the way and magically feel sated even before it arrives!

I was removing it from the game to send it to you but I dropped it on the floor and it broke. I'm really sorry about that.

#5020 4 years ago

Anyone who wants to thank me for coloring tron could send me their LED-DMD that i could build a Run-DMD with it

There will be a livestream Mon or Tues (more details to come) and video should be out later this week.

Are you the one that did it? If so THANK YOU!!! Finally! I'm not happy about dropping another 400 bucks into Tron, and I can't wait to drop another 400 bucks I to my Tron! Crazy happy at this news!

With Purpledrillmonkey making another batch of RGB integration to Eli's kit, I'm wondering if their is anyway I could hook up the Pinball Refinery rails and hinges to a set of RGB LEDS instead of the EL paper. I'm assuming the main problem would be the limited amount of space on the rails; but, the hinges should have enough room I would think.

I was thinking RGB LED tape behind a thin piece of something to diffuse the lights.

Anyone know the minimum thickness for an RGB tape and if there is anything on the market that might fit under the rail?

#5028 4 years ago

That's a neat idea if you can pull it off. The tape strips I've played with would be too thick for rails. Probably around 2mm thickness for 3528 and 5050 smds. Plus their light is very focused so diffusing may be tough.

Love me some TRON in color - ORDERED! Woohoo, can't wait! I wonder which mode will look best - DOT XL, SCAN, HIRES? - it should be fun!!!

#5030 4 years ago

I had one running Sigma for a long time now, and on this particular game, I love me some TILE.

Been there for at least a little while. I see it all the time.

It's depressing that the best part of the CDMD video is the match sequence. All the other just looks flat and monochrome to me. I don't know if that's just because the movie is that way or what. I'll have to go back and see.

My only experience with Color DMD's is with my Metallica. The Tron video appears to not be similar in clarity and sharpness when compared to my Metallica. Is that apples to oranges?

#5045 4 years ago

I thought the LCMB animation looked especially awesome

It's due to the movie footage shown in that short clip. Movie footage is same

My favorites are actually the disc and quorra sequences.
