Quoted from luvthatapex2:

Does anyone know if there is another 12v auxiliary plug in TRON in the backbox for the colorDMD? I am using the aux power wire near the shooter for my arcade cab.... I thought there was another one somewhere I could get 12v?
Oops looking at the directions it appears the power cable from colorDMD has a Y adapter so it can route the power to the existing plug and the colordmd. Phew! NEvermind

You only have one powered mod? We'll submit this to flank for membership review.

Has to be a misprint....hopefully, he fixes it BEFORE Flank sees this...

Two mods actually - Elis ramp lighting and the arcade mod. Two essential components in the TRON club

Better be changing those red condoms to some naked flex LEDs! Nice choice on those flashers by the disc, I have the same ones.

#5113 3 years ago

Trade for a TWD premium.

I've had my disc motor with new pad upside down on a flat surface with a whole bunch of weights on it the last 20 hours. Lock it down tight!!!!!

#5116 3 years ago

Tron CDMD livestream tomorrow!

Twitch.tv/gapinball

Starting around 12PST/3EST and going for several hours.

#5117 3 years ago

Is there a way to tone down the strength of the shooter lane kick out coil?

Mine wants to knock a hole in the metal protector it feels like! Murderous!

Hey

#5121 3 years ago

Clear rubber conversion finally complete, new clear disc, waxed up, bent the Cliffy a bit for the right side of the scoop, plastic protectors for the sling/outlane installed.....I might leave a little DNA inside this tonight.

Ok, so I installed the ColorDMD today and it looks great, but now I have reflections from the playfield on the ColorDMD. Obviously, I'd rather not remove the transparent plastic screen to protect the ColorDMD so I'm wondering what others have done to avoid glare (not from, but on the DMD itself).

#5125 3 years ago

I just removed all my playfield lights, now the ColorDMD looks amazing

GENIUS!!! Did you use a sledgehammer or a jackhammer? Just want to make sure I do it right!

#5127 3 years ago

Would those glare guards from comet help

Flanker mailed me a jar of secret sauce with instructions to apply generously on each bulb. After waiting a few mins, the bulbs unscrewed themselves and ran screaming out the door. Who knew

Isn't that for the opposite problem where the DMD reflects on the glass? I have the issue that the lights from the playfield reflect on the DMD.

You should probably send me a color DMD and I'll figure out a solution to the problem.

The dotted images look ok, the Hi-res are not so good, I never liked those (saw these also on ST and SM). Probably going to invest in one as you cab also set the total screen on just blue.

#5135 3 years ago

ooh, I like Tile. Mines in ready, bring the code!

#5136 3 years ago

As the dev my favorite is scan, but plenty of choices. 8-bit is my least favorite though tile looks good as well. I like Dots XL on this one as well.

I will say that I develop all titles using normal Dots.

Thank you for your efforts!!! I'm a scan guy, too (minority, I know)...just enjoy it more (except for certain clips)...have had a Sigma in TRONLE for awhile...anxious to see the colorized version.....

Friday I'm still fixing a couple tiny bugs we spotted yesterday. Four hours of straight Tron is a lot of Tron. I feel bad I didn't get to SOS like the other two, one shot away too!

Not that many of you know me personally, but last Saturday night my Dad suffered a rupture in his brain stem and was put on life support. B/c he was an organ donor the process took a few days but He was officially pronounced dead Tuesday and I will be burying him Friday. Reason I bring this up is because he was an Organ donor and even at 77 years old, a Cold Coors light drinking bad boy motor head guy still was able to donate his liver to a 40 year old and kidneys to a 60 year old and help save 2 lives. If your not, you should think about being an organ donor. Its amazing what they can do. And you never know whom you can help save. I've been absent on here the past week and will be for a few more days while I attend to my Fathers' Funeral.

Sorry for your loss, I'm a doner as well. No sense in taking all my vital Tron loving organs to the grave.

My scores are nowhere near yours, but, in a strange coincidence I got High Score #2 just last night, and my initials I use are TY, but stranger still, my last name starts with a D. You gave your Tron the D, for me!

That's hilarious! I love giving the D!

I've been asked a few times why my initials aren't my real initials - not that you asked - but it came from my high school years. I'd been using the acronym for Throw Your Desk for other situations. Then when I finally got on a score board, it was the first I thought to use, and it stuck, much to my mom's disapproval. She thinks I lack Carmichael pride.

Congrats on another score on the Board! It's funny on games we own and play a lot, how difficult it becomes to get our initials stamped in for a high score.

Cheers!
