Quoted from Erik:

Oh that is impressive

I hope these sexy rail pics are suitable for your spank bank. Available in the standard Pro or the upgraded LEttered boxes

RIP Walking Dead box, kids were using it as their fart box.

My

Balls

Are

Itchy

#5452 3 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

Guys - my tron says to install 4 balls but there are only three switches in the ball holder so I've only installed 3. Is mine missing a switch? If someone wouldn't mind taking a pic of your ball holder so I can compare to mine. Seems like mine only has 3 switches (where the balls rest while not in play)....
EDIT - manual says there are only 3 so I guess mine is fine. 4 in and all is good.

4 balls in mine. Install 4 ball sticker too.

#5453 3 years ago

Anyone else. I am not sold on needing a Color DMD for TRON. I know this has been asked before, but I kinda would like just the Blue DMD.

I was looking into the color dmd too and decided to go with blue considering the color dmd is basically blue anyway (main color at least). Didn't seem worth it considering the cost brand new

The fourth switch is an opto. It's the green PCB at the shooter lane end. The ball breaks the beam to activate the switch.
And a Tronly reminder to be real careful when finding your own reasons to override the instructions. You don't want Quorra to have to intervene and save your ass from the grid. Or maybe you do...

Have a Blue XPin in mine. I like it enough not to upgrade to the Color DMD.

ha - thanks. This one ended up being user error on my part. Optos were fine all along - although I did have that issue with my LOTR. Easy fix though.

btw - the knocker on this game is terrible. Had to turn that off right away. Forget waterboarding - play that knocker sound and it will get the information out.

Meh....personal choice.....I like the subtle color on the colordmd ...ALOT.....and Stern's electronic knocker sounds like shit on all their machines, not just TRON.....wire up the mechanical version....

I think I would go with the colorDMD, you can always set that to blue only. So you can play around, I think it is just more versatile...but there is a higher price.

#5468 3 years ago

I think your right about that PeterG. I am weighing my options and the full color is only $120 more. Might as well have full color as I may change my mind in future

... and you get the 6 different colorDMD modes to play around with - scanlines, dots xp, hi res.....

I have a TOTAN Color DMD. Is there any tutorials on how to mess with all that stuff. I haven't had much free time. I got it installed and have just left it stock dots. Would like to see smoothing and what not on that.

I think if Borygurd dropped his price down to $200 it would just do the Blue, but at $280 its hard not to say F it and just do $400 for the full color.

#5471 3 years ago

you can probably find a used blue one for 200.....

guys with pros and shakers - I just installed mine and it feels like the shaker is not working all the time. Some shots like slings and targets will trigger shaker but then some balls, I get nothing. Tested the shaker out in the coil menu and it works perfectly fine. Is this normal?

I'm on the latest code and shaker is set to max.

It's most active during ZUSE fast scoring. Like crazy active. It's not supposed to be on ALL the time, that defeats the purpose.

Mine seems to go off to a varying degree on all major hits. I've never thought this isn't shaking enough. Ill play a few rounds and let you know what mine does.

#5475 3 years ago

Thanks guys - sounds like the machine does not do it inconsistently (besides fast scoring). Never owned a stern with a shaker so just double checking it wasn't me!

I can totally see how modding this thing can get addicting! Just bought the speed arrow plastics that go on the bottom of the clear ramps (thought they were standard - guess not) and the sticker for the top of that targets that rise and drop.

Frax - great job on that mod which lights up the dropping targets. Haven't bought it yet but thinking about it!

Noticed the disc spinner makes noise - seems like that's normal too.

Agreed.....but we NEED the mods, so they shouldn't count anyway...

#5482 3 years ago

Haven't owned it for long but by far (IMO) the ELI light mod on the pro is the #1 mod hands down. What a diff.

#5483 3 years ago

All the TRON rails were shipped today, whew!!!

Monkey off the back for me on that one. I had hoped to get those out just after new years but timing didn't allow. 4 more TRON's will be magical soon.

Enjoy Dudes!

I just need speaker upgrade kit, TRON Pop Caps, (install the rails that Flank just sent), install the under the cab lighting I have, Installed the dark mirror blades and I am done! Don't need light cycles or Flynn's arcade. everything else though was a must for me.......on shit and that Color DMD ughh...

Tutorial for the colordmds? Sure on the colordmds site there is a faq. Simple 4 buttons on the top,of the lcd. Left button starts the menu and button 3 and 4 will toggle options. Button 3 to save it at the end. No rebooting necessary as soon as you leave the menu the new display options are active.

Honestly In my TOTAN I got it running and it took a while b/c of some stupid shit (i changed out the WPC-95 A/V board and I never hooked it back up on the AV Board side) I was frustrated, the colored Dots looked fine to me and I never looked at it again.

I just meant, What all can these things do? I didn't even know they had other options on them.

Oh and I guess the shaker isn't going crazy the whole time. I played about 10 games trying to figure out what causes it to shake and I have no Fing Clue. Seems like it shakes with the coils, with the TRON Targets, with the modes? Feels good enough to me on mine, If I needed a Vibrator for more stimulation than what this give me I'd ask my Wife

We've had the " vibrate vs shake" discussion just a bit back in this thread......I got nailed for asking, but yes, you are correct in your assessment ....

Done something I've never done before on this game tonight, beat the game/completed Portal Multiball. Super Jackpot was 25 million plus, every shot on the game then is 1 million points.

Strangely I was missing the gem but had everything else going into SOS, so no 50 million bonus. I then had a really good multiball in Portal and completed it. My high score on one I owned previously was low 400 million.

BTW, what is the highest people have gotten the end of line up to? I had it up to 9 million cashing in,

the value seems to go away on the same ball sometimes though, not sure what causes this.

No, no--I am serious, I really want some tips! How do I rack up a decent Portal score? Last time I was so surprised to actually get to Portal I had no idea of what to do...and the balls couldn't get back into the rack fast enough.
